We hired Gobrail Photography for our wedding, and they did an amazing job. The chemistry between Sam and Jen and their approach to photography made them the perfect photographers to capture our most precious and sentimental moments. Prior to the ceremony, they each met us at our respective locations so that we could have preparation pictures with our attendants. Jen met with the bride and bridesmaids at our hotel suite and she did an awesome job of setting up very creative shots with the gown, shoes, bouquet, and jewelry. Individual shots of the bride looking out of the window over downtown Washington, DC are gorgeous. Sam did an excellent job of capturing key moments of fun with the groom and groomsmen while we got dressed at the church. One of the best moments captured was an emotional hug between the groom and his father, an invaluable moment that will forever be cherished. Sam and Jen have a knack for excellent timing, and this allows them to capture outstanding action shots. One of our favorite pictures shows us jumping the broom during the ceremony, which pays homage to our African ancestry. After the ceremony, Sam and Jen were very efficient with taking the formal pictures of the entire wedding party. They ensured everyone was comfortable, and their patience and sense of humor made the process go smoothly. At the reception, they captured the special elements such as our cake, favors, and decorations. Additionally, they captured memorable pictures of us with our family and friends, and they got many great dancing shots from our first dance and the “Soul Train” line. Sam and Jen truly captured our personalities and the joyous mood of the occasion in all of the pictures. We give Gobrail Photography our highest recommendation. Sam and Jen are an energetic, polite, funny, and creative husband and wife team who are very gifted photographers. We are so grateful we hired them to be our photographers for the best day of our lives.

Have you ever meet that person who made your heart skip a beat? That person who you felt an instant connection with? No, we are not talking about each other, but rather Sam and Jen from Gobrail Photography.

I (Renee) initially met Sam and Jen at a Bridal Show in August 2012. I was with my Mom and my sister and we were in awe of their presentation and products. When it finally got to the time for Peter and I to start looking at photographers, Gobrail Photography was at the top on our list to meet with. After completing their online inquiry form, we were quickly contacted by them to set up a face-to-face meeting. We met them in their home office which is filled with many examples of why they are award winning photographers.
After discussing it, Peter and I decided to hire Gobrail for our engagement shoot and wedding. Our engagement shoot took place at Camden Yards and at Fort McHenry. Our wedding was to take place in the Little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore City.

At our March 2013 engagement shoot, Peter and I were nervous, but Sam and Jen quickly put us at ease and the cameras started clicking. Within a few minutes, we forgot that they were even there. I had started using Pinterest to pin photo ideas so that Sam and Jen could get an idea of what we wanted. Sam and Jen went over and above what I even thought that I wanted. The final results were astounding engagement photos. We were even more excited for the wedding knowing that they would capture our day perfectly.
Sam and Jen certainly did not disappoint with our wedding photos. We have had them for a little more than a week now and I think that we have look at them (all 500+) at least 15 times already.

A few of the comments that we have received so far on our photos include: Unique, beautiful, not run of the mill, awesome and exceptional. And we could not agree more. Thank you Sam and Jen for capturing our December 7, 2013 wedding (and engagement shoot) so absolutely perfectly!

Sam and Jen Gobrail were great again! The pictures they shot came out amazing! They really captured everyone’s personalities in the photos as well as the general mood of the evening. I would highly recommend this couple because they were extremely nice, caring, knowledgeable, and professional. It’s also perfect that they work together because they combine their two different stylistic approaches and can split up and cover different parts of the day. Jen went with the bride and got those priceless shots, and Sam went with the groom to shoot the men getting ready.

Gobrail Photography (Sam and Jen) were amazing and super fun to work with. In every way we were blown out of this world with their skills and professionalism as well as the way they worked with us. Our engagement session was a blast and we both went home with sore stomachs from all the laughing we did...sure made it easy to take great pictures when you can't stop grinning from ear to ear. On the wedding day they split up pre ceremony and took some of my favorite pictures of all time and I will have them displayed for the rest of my life. Jen was what we decided to call a photogrpher ninja for the way she moved all over the place and got some of the most beautiful shots I have EVER seen in a wedding. I would work with Gobrail Photography a million times before I thought to switch to another group/company!!! Go with them and you WILL be happy.

Sam and Jen were the perfect photographers for our wedding day. We met both of them at a wedding show and decided immediately that they were the perfect fit. It didn't matter how far away they were, they remained involved in the wedding process and reached out to us to finalize. Prior to the wedding they recommended we like their Pinterest Board. This was a fantastic idea because on the day of the wedding they knew exactly what shots my husband and I wanted. The day of the wedding was an amazing experience with them. Talk about putting my mind at ease. I didn't have to think about anything regarding pictures. Sam and Jen helped both my husband and I along the way and told us what to do (even the little details like the bouquet toss). Our pictures turned out wonderful and our family and friends would agree. I would recommend Sam and Jen to everyone having a wedding. They are truly some of the best photographers and people we know.

Sam and Jen, you did such an amazing job! Chris and I have had such difficulty deciding on which pictures we want because we LOVE them all! You did everything we wanted and captured every moment we wanted captured! You said you had never done a rustic/military wedding before.. but you nailed it!!! (I just finished watching the DVDs.... AGAIN!)

Thank you for absolutely EVERYTHING!

Sam and Jen Gobrail were very approachable and easy to be around. They both work together on ideas for photographs, and they were sure to inquire about our ideas. The quality of their equipment and editing of photographs is very good. Our wedding and engagement pictures were very well done. I liked how they went over contracts with us and signed over the copyrights of our wedding pictures so we could have them developed anywhere we choose. We highly recommend them.

We are thrilled with the work that Sam and Jen provided as our wedding photographers. They are very personable and accommodating that even guests were commenting to us how much they liked them! We have gorgeous pictures that capture our emotions and make for beautiful memories. All in all, we had a great experience with them from the engagement pictures through the wedding day and beyond, but did have one little bump in the road. Because they are still a budding business, we did not discuss extra time prior to our event. There was some disagreement on a fair price, but in the end it all worked out and they immediately addressed this in their rates for future business. Sam and Jen really took in the ideas that we gave them and tried to incorporate as many of these as they could throughout the day and they also put a lot of effort into and did a wonderful job with the editing! Even after they have finished and we have received our pictures, they continue to be responsive to any questions we still have. I would recommend this husband and wife team to others looking for great photojournalism style pictures!

Amazing, talented couple! Very friendly and easy to work with! Jen and Sam were really creative with the different shots they took and spent a good deal of time taking multiple pictures with different backgrounds. They also respond quickly to emails, are easy to get in touch with and worked around our busy schedules. Would definitely recommend them for engagements and weddings!

Sam and Jen were fantastic to work with! From beginning to end, they were very flexible and professional. Not only that, but they were very enthusiastic to photograph our wedding. Although they had never done a Pakistani-style wedding, they did their homework and did fantastic work! Sam and Jen were never in the way of guests and their photo style truly documented the event. They got the photos online very quickly! All in all, we were very impressed and would highly recommend them for your event!

Sam and Jen are SIMPLY THE BEST
Without a doubt they deliver first class service from start to finish.
their incredible way working with people and managing how to get everyone together without any pressure makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera,
they know how to capture the spirit and emotions of the day that you'll keep looking at the pictures over and over again.
They understand how important your " special day " is and give you something to cherish forever.
Thanks alot, we appreciate all your work

Fantastic Photographer!‎‎
Finding the right photographer was not easy.
Gobrail focus is on capturing candid moments and the feel of the event rather than posed photos. artistic eyes, clever shots and very quickly to every email.
