Bob Carter is an extraordinary photograher and an absolute joy to work with! Not only is he a delightful person and totally professional but he also has this incredible artistic flair and knows precisely how to create the perfect backdrop and bring out the best color palette and expression in each shot. And he has fun doing his job! He's able to tell a story visually and for that I am forever grateful for the memories he's given me and my husband to treasure that make us smile every time we view our DVD. Gorgeous photos of our dog too! He's the best!

Our pictures turned out beautiful and I couldn't be happier with them! I only wish I would have had more time to take more. My slip and corset had been left at the house so we lost about 45 minutes of photo taking time before the wedding that was supposed to be just me and my family/bridesmaids/groomsmen. We had to quickly do all of these along with all the other photos planned during the cocktail hour and Bob was very flexible with us in getting them all done even though we had to go off schedule. He was also very professional throughout the whole process and an amazing value for my money. Also, unlike most photographers he is actually giving us a DVD with our photos and copyright release so we are free to print them and do with them what we want. He was also done with our pictures within 2 weeks of the wedding like he promised.

Bob Carter of A Moment Unveiled took pictures at our wedding at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium and did a fabulous job! We loved working with Bob for a few reasons.
1. His personality. Bob is very calm and cool which is something we knew we'd need for the wedding.
2. His experience. Bob brought his portfolio to our first meeting and we were immediately impressed with the quality of photos and retouching he does. In addition, our wedding was in an aquarium with unusual lighting. Bob has done previous weddings there and knew the venue well.
3. His timeframes. Bob promised to get us our pictures within 2 weeks after the wedding. He sent us an email with a link to our photos 4 days later. All the photos were beautiful.
4. His presence. We hired Bob for 6 hours and we didn't feel harassed even once. He got all the shots he needed without being in the way or obtrusive. We've had a number of our guests comment about this.

Bob did a great job with providing instructions as we had photos taken the entire time. He was flexible and willing to "go with the flow" when necessary (such as when it started raining for a bit). The results are exactly what we wanted.

Editting was not "cutesy" like some of the other photographers I reviewed, but rather inhanced what was already there. When there was a mistake in our wedding book, was prompt and gracious in fixing it (even though the mistake could be seen in the proof and I missed it).

They took great pictures for a great price. I would suggest that they work on communication...but perhaps I am also in fault here. Maybe I did not make my wishes clear.

I always strive provide the best level of service possible to every single event I photographic. It’s a discomforting feeling to learn I let someone down and they didn’t get what they were expecting.
