Being asked by Modern Luxury to photograph interior designers, and power couple, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent was incredibly exciting! I’ve been a huge admirer of Nate’s work ever since he was a regular guest on the Oprah Winfrey show. Last year I photographed Deepak Chopra and now Nate Berkus. I promise you, I can almost hear Oprah calling my name. This is what I like to call the 6th degree of Oprah Winfrey, haha!
We shot this feature on location at JF Chen, which was the perfect space to photograph these two. JF Chen has a vast, industrial-cool antiques showroom in Hollywood, which features big-name mid-century furniture, accessories, and art. Nate uses pieces from the JF Chen showroom expertly in some of his designs. Nate and Jeremiah were so charming, handsome, and down to earth. This made them so easy to work with and on top of this, both of them carried such fun energy into the shoot! You can tell from their portraits that they genuinely love what they do – and each other! Everything goes so smoothly when people feed off of each other and share this dynamic during a shoot.
These two are super busy, creating season two of their show Nate and Jeremiah by Design, on TLC. Make sure you keep an eye out to see these guys in action and hopefully we get to work together again soon!
