From our Founder

Welcome to Food Seen, the marketing agency that I would want to work with. One that prioritizes communication, relationships, and high-quality work.


When I moved to Raleigh from Los Angeles, I quickly recognized that there was a new, burgeoning food scene and an untapped opportunity to creatively support it. It was the perfect chance for me to get involved with this amazing community, so I began to offer my expertise as a professional photographer and my support in social media marketing for local restaurants and businesses.

As North Carolina continued to grow, so did Food Seen. We expanded into serving national and international companies and evolved into other areas of hospitality including tableware, consumer packaged goods, home décor and more. While we continued to grow and hone our capabilities, we also made a conscious decision to keep our agency small. We intentionally chose to be discerning about our projects and the services we offered in order to provide our clients with a highly personalized and highly crafted experience.

With our focus on the relationships we have with our clients, and our foundation in visual storytelling, Food Seen helps brands get seen in a meaningful and powerful way. The passion of our team and the connections we make are paramount to us. We have built our processes around that idea, so everything we do for you is done with mindful intention and detailed meticulousness. We have a small but mighty team that operates around these core values. Trends may come and go, and the world is changing quicker every day, but the one thing that we believe will never change is the importance of genuine, honest connection and long-lasting relationships. At the end of the day, it’s about being nimble, adapting to changes, and keeping people at the heart of it all.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us – we would love to know about you and your business. Let’s connect!
