Minneapolis Food Photographer

My name is Barbara Wrigley McDevitt, owner of Wrigley McDevitt Photography, and I'm a Minneapolis, Minnesota food photographer. I specialize in food photography, restaurant branding, travel, and lifestyle photography with food as an emphasis.


I am fortunate to be able to serve two outstanding areas. From my Wayzata, Minnesota studio, I serve Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities, and all surrounding areas.

From my Cape Coral, Florida studio, I serve Miami, South Beach, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Punta Gorda, Ft. Myers, Naples, and all of Southwest Florida. I'm also available for on-location projects involving domestic and international travel.

My Style

I specialize in visually driven food photographs with an emphasis on light, shadows, color and contrast—whether a single image for a menu, multiple images for a cookbook, food images for product packaging and advertising and restaurant branding including chef’s portraits, restaurant style and architecture, and plates of delicious food.

I am best known for my creative approach to composition, my style of capturing food scenes with natural light and strobes (when natural light is not available). Since my studio opened in 2008 I have photographed countless images in which food has been the major focus whether for product packing, menus, cookbooks, restaurant advertising, editorial articles for food magazines and commercial food projects.

I have an extensive collection of vintage and contemporary props including plates, bowls and other dinnerware, linens, tableware, cookware, glasses and other sundry items. I frequently prop my own images but also have several working relationships with individuals who do nothing else but prop and style food images.

I also have an extensive collection surfaces and other backgrounds for photographing food. The surfaces include aged brown barn wood, aged grey barn wood, light and dark concrete surfaces, antique green planked wood, antique blue planked wood, and charcoal.

Also chalkboard, natural planked wood, asphalt, stormy sea blue, black steel, cookie sheet, distressed white, dark brown natural tobacco lath, distressed white tobacco lath, grey plaster, rust and black combination, stormy white, stormy silver, pink and grey, thrashed brown and more!

If you are looking for the most creative, most skilled food photographer in Minneapolis or Southwest Florida then Wrigley McDevitt Photography is the studio for you.
