Who are we?

Us.jpg

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 pedaling her artwork at the age of 6 in her parent's 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 create Bottle Branding in 2009 — a media business focused solely on food, wine and spirits.

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.

Two. Conceptualize: We will create initial mockups to determine the design direction and tailor it according to your taste and ideas. Typography and graphic elements will be explored for client feedback.

Three. Design: Once a direction has been decided, we will refine the design and all required elements.

Four. Create: Final design will be fine-tuned and details will be added to make the design ready for final output production.

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 an 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. 

Check out our work and connect with us today to discuss your project.
