Robert is very friendly and easy to work with. He is very professional to find the right spot and take the best picture at the right time. Also, he is flexible that we can just pop up our request and idea and he will find the best way to take the shot.
The post process is also very good and quick. I don't need to chasing after him, and the photos are in my hand within 3 weeks, over 600 pics...

Robert was AMAZING! He did our engagement photos as well and we had so much fun. I had spoken very briefly with him when we chose him for our photographer, but we just instantly clicked. He is a very nice guy with TONS of talent. My husband does not tend to smile in pictures and Robert managed to capture TONS of smiles! He was great at our engagement session and AMAZING during our wedding. I can't wait to see the photos I know they will be perfect. If you are looking for a photographer and want some one who truly loves his job and does AMAZING work, hire Robert!

Of all the things I was concerned about in my wedding, photography was #1. I don't photograph well and if your wedding pics come out bad there's nothing you can do about that. Thank God for Robert, the man seriously knows how to take pictures. There are so many great pictures, I'm so grateful for the the excellent job he did. He was very attentive and on top of his job. We have great memories and the pictures to back it up. You will not go wrong choosing him.

Robert was absolutely perfect. Most of the pictures I didn't even know he was there. The only thing I wish I would have remembered was some more funny pictures, but that was my fault for not requesting. My wife & I are pleased. The picture quality is fantastic as well. I would recommend him to anyone.

Robert was a wonderful photographer for our wedding. He was a perfectionist for our sake and it shows in the quality of his amazing work. He is also a sweet and patient man to work with.

We hired Robert for our wedding through Electra Cruises and out of the man photographers that we met, his prices are beyond reasonable for what we got! We got over 900 pictures for our use for the price that other photographers would have charged for only a few and he sent them to us within a week of our wedding!

Considering personality, quality of artistic talent, and the price for his work, we highly recommend Robert Acton to anyone in need of a photographer. And should we ever need his services again, we hope to hire him again.

Robert was very easy to talk with and responded quickly. He listened to our requests for specific photos and caught some great candid shots. During the reception he took pictures of the guests to capture their experience at the wedding reception. That was great because it gave us a different perspective of what else was going on besides us. Of course Robert also got the typical photos you'd expect as well. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a photographer who will work with your budget as well as offering you a chance to express your own ideas. Oh and he does event photography too.
