HELLO!


Bottle Branding was started by Michelle and Jeremy Ball, a husband and wife creative duo, who provide photography, film production and graphic design for the food and wine industries.

Who are we?

Photography, Videography and Graphic Design Duo, Jeremy and Michelle Ball

Michelle and Jeremy Ball, a husband and wife duo, combined artistic passions to form a dynamic, creative and growing business in the heart of California's Central Coast wine country.

Michelle began painting and peddling her artwork at the age of 6 in her parents' restaurant and continued her career in fine art throughout her adult life. Meeting Jeremy inspired her to put her creativity to work and explore the world of graphic design and film editing. 

Jeremy is a self-taught photographer. He's been shooting and editing for over a decade. Inspired by his past career in the restaurant industry, he chose to take a leap of faith and created Bottle Branding in 2009 — a media business focused solely on food, wine and spirits.

Testimonials

“Michelle & Jeremy filmed our farm for a Kickstarter Campaign we ran early this year, and the final video was more than we could have hoped for. Not only was it moving, compelling, and successful, but it told a beautiful story about our farm that dug up raw sentiment for us and brought us to tears. They are incredibly fun to work with and made every part of the project easy and exciting: from outlining the script to choosing the music. We even felt super comfortable getting in front of a camera and speaking with them. The turnaround was quick but they made absolutely sure that everything was perfect. They even went the extra mile to help build momentum for us on social media sites once the campaign was live. We couldn't have chosen a better team to partner with to make this project a success!”Dare 2 Dream Farms

“Palmina has had the pleasure of working with Michelle & Jeremy for several years now, and from the start, we viewed Bottle Branding as a true partner in our business. Their talent, professionalism and quality of their work was evident early on. What sets Bottle Branding apart is their passion for what they do. Michelle & Jeremy took a genuine interest in our success and have an innate ability to bring ideas to life. That they share Palmina’s philosophy about food and wine make them a pleasure to work with — and even more fun to share a bottle and a meal with!” Palmina Wines

“Working with Michelle and Jeremy from Bottle Branding is really a pleasure. They are brilliantly creative, have great attention to detail and quality, and communicate well with us, all of which makes the most difficult project a cinch. Their work is always timely and dependable. More than anything else, when we describe what we need, from beauty shots of our products to fancy videos or label design, they always “get it”. That’s why they are so good at what they do.”The Olive Oil Source

"It was an absolute pleasure working with Jeremy & Michelle! Not only are they super cool and extremely talented, they are above all genuine people. We approached them with a small idea for a logo design and WOW...our vision was brought to life through their creativity. They listened, went the extra mile and way exceeded our expectations! The whole process was incredibly seamless. Looking forward to our next project together!"Winery Explorers

"I have worked almost exclusively with the Bottle Branding Team since 2011. For my Graphic Design and Event Photography needs, they are my Dream Team! Michelle has crafted beautiful and unique designs that make my marketing for my events to stand out time after time. From logos, to posters, to menus she listens to my ideas and makes them come alive! Jeremy's eye for the culinary, locational, and overall contextual perspective, really makes my event photos pop – and after each event, I can't wait to see my team's hard work through his eyes."Create Promotions

"Working with Jeremy and Michelle Ball at BOTTLE BRANDING was a fantastic experience. Their professionalism and ability to work together as a team put me at ease from the moment we started filming. Both Jeremy and Michelle are not only wonderful people, but clearly put an incredible amount of thought and passion into what it is that they do... and they do it incredibly well. The resulting product not only exceeded my expectations, but I believe met the much tougher challenge of exceeding their own… To me, there’s no higher mark than a team that chooses to take pride in every project they take on. The results, quite simply, speak for themselves... Thanks BOTTLE BRANDING!" — Billy Dim, Blendtique Wine Company

PHOTOGRAPHY


I put my heart and soul into releasing only the best images that I can create. My number one goal in any photographic context, is to cause the viewer to stop and take notice.

I didn't go to school for this. I didn't grow up to be a photographer. It wasn't until 2007 when I took a trip to eastern Ghana, one of the poorest regions of Africa with my first DSLR camera, that I realized the power of a photo. Once I started shooting, I just couldn't stop seeing life through the eyes of a lens.  

I put my heart and soul into releasing only the best images that I can create. My number one goal in any photographic context is to cause the viewer to stop and take notice.

My job as a photographer - focused on all things food, wine and spirits - is to visually compel and propel the consumer towards the story or brand that is represented.

Why Video?

Consumer attention span is shorter than ever, so using text alone in your marketing and messaging just doesn't cut it.

Video is a powerful and effective form of visual messaging that can be used across multiple web and social media platforms. Video can make an impact quickly and it's a great way to increase direct-to-consumer sales by connecting with your clients in a modern way.

We all know that it would be great if every consumer could experience your brand in person, but for those that can't, video can virtually bring the tasting room to them — all they need is your wine.

Consider utilizing a 2-3 minute video for your brand to maximize awareness for the consumer on-the-go.

Why Bottle Branding?

We are not your typical bloated and overpriced LA film crew. We are a lean, mean machine. Jeremy brings his eye for photography and applies that talent by capturing content in a creative and cinematic way. Michelle has a knack for storytelling. Her attention to detail and context allows her to process and craft a cohesive and effective visual story through the power of editing.

With many years of experience in the food and wine industries, we understand what it takes to sell. Our insider knowledge of the industry means that we can help capture and mold your messaging to create a project that is both beautiful and effective. Our productions range from philosophy videos to short snippet Instagram videos and everything in between.
