The idea for Feed the Photographer came from the brain of food-loving wedding photographer, Sam Le. It started with a question: what kind of food is served at weddings around the world? One late evening while chatting online, he asked Dani (another foodie photographer) if she would find the concept of this blog interesting enough to follow. She, of course, replied to the affirmative and offhandedly suggested a name. Sam loved it and, thus, feedthephotographer.com was born.
Both Sam and Dani would like to request that there be more Southeast Asian food served at weddings — particularly the weddings they happen to be shooting.
About Sam & Dani:
These two met while posting comments on the photography blogs of a mutual friend (I kid you not). Vietnamese and part Vietnamese, Nikon-wielding, food-obsessed photographers, with great blog commenting skills and awesome mutual friends? Hello, new friendship!
Sam is a wedding photographer (and former sushi chef!) based out of Austin, Texas. On his wedding site About Me page, he lists 10 random facts about himself — one of which is: “The real reason I became a wedding photographer, free cake.” Other people might say he became a wedding photographer because he’s darn good at this whole photography thing.

Dani is a photographer (and internationally admired* home cook) living in Kamloops, BC, Canada. She plans her road trips around food. Ok, family might be included in some trips, but there is no way she would go out of town without doing some research on the best places to get good coffee and tasty food.
Dani’s portrait and wedding photography can be seen at: Dani K. Johnson
Her personal photography and endless ramblings are at: Mud Puddle Kiss
*Australia and the US can be counted as “international” from the perspective of someone in Canada, right? Right?
