Meet the family behind Mella's Wood Fired Pizza, a mobile wood-fired pizza catering service out of Cooperstown, NY!

I had the pleasure of working with Mella's Wood Fired Pizza service on a personal branding session last summer. Really, it was my lucky night when I got to sample a few of their pizzas. Trust me, once you have their wood-fired pizza, you won't want to go back to plain old oven pizza! Not only is their pizza AMAZING, but Jake, Jim, and Suzie are the nicest folks to work with! You may be wondering, how does their service work? They have a mobile wood burning pizza oven that they bring on site to cater your event. They make all of their pizzas on site with fresh ingredients. Yum!! Don't worry, the pizzas cook crazy fast (think 2 minutes!)

Are you wondering what a personal branding session is?

Personal brand photography provides you with professional, consistent images to capture the heart of your business and showcase the services that you offer. Suzie approached me about a branding session because they were updating the Mella's website, and she wanted to show clients what they offer and how their process works. Along with featuring the mobile wood fired pizza oven, which she said is always interesting to customers, we took headshots of each staff member, lifestyle images of them making pizza, detail photos of the various pizzas, and photos of their catering set up. You can see a variety of the images from their session below!
