We found Rob through a friend of ours and could not be happier with our decision. Rob, and his wife/assitant May, are the greatest! Very professional, fun and easy going. They totally made us feel at ease.

We brought our dog Cocoa to our engagement session, and May was so great with her. She totally made Cocoa feel at ease, and we got some great shots.

For the wedding, we were on a pretty tight schedule, and went through numerous schedule changes, but Rob just rolled with it and made it happen for us. He's also very non-instrusive...at some points I didn't even notice him and his team shooting pictures.

Rob is a great great guy to work with. He's open and honest, and stays true to his beliefs/visions. A true artist, and a great photographer. I can't wait to see the wedding photos, and I definitely recommend everyone to check him out. Maybe he'll be the perfect match for you too!

Rob was wonderful to work with. As an event planner we have to juggle multiple vendors. Rob made my job so easy by providing high quality services, professionalism and flexibility. I do not think I have words to describe how happy my bride was with his work, but his pictures speak volumes.
