We hired one of Rob's associates to do our engagement and wedding photos. For the wedding Emily was also there as a second shooter. Both ladies were professional, friendly, and amazing photographers. I highly recommend them! They kept us on track throughout the day and were really easy to work with.

Rob is a gem! He has enormous experience and was able to capture every aspect of our wedding day. The photographs were unique, glamorous, and PERFECT. I could not wipe the permanent smile off of my face while reviewing all the photos from our wedding day (which we received less than a week after our wedding!) He and Emily (2nd photographer) were a pleasure to work with, are creative, and artistic. They were flexible, outgoing, and dedicated. We are so thankful to Robert Holley Photography for helping to make our wedding day last forever!

We HIGHLY recommend working with Rob and his associate photographer, Emily!

Choosing a great photographer was definitely a top priority of ours, and my husband, Eli, and I spent numerous hours looking through company websites (and their reviews) in hopes of finding quality work without the outrageous price tag. We came across Robert Holley Photography and immediately we knew we had found exactly what we were looking for!

We loved Rob and Emily'€™s style from the photo albums online and were completely blown away when we got to work with them on our wedding day. Rob and Emily arrived early and made sure that every photograph we asked for was taken (in addition to many, many more!). They were both so friendly, professional, and incredible to work with. We can't say enough good things about Rob and Emily - they were both simply amazing!

We should also mention that we received the digital version of our photographs within a week of our wedding day. Yes, you read that right - one week!! The pictures were beautiful and we can't thank Rob and Emily enough for capturing such special moments.

We used Steve for our photography. He was so cool and a pleasure to have around. Robert handed all the initial planning and he really gave us a great deal and was extremely responsive. My only real problem was some of the final pictures. I would have liked some black and whites, some more flattering poses and better cropping on some shots. I'm paying my neighbor, who is a professional photographer (moved in after I booked my vendors), to alter a few of the photos so we have a little variety. Overall, though, all of the pictures turned out really nice and I would recommend them for sure.

When I found Rob Holley's website, I loved his photos and style. Unfortunately, he was out of my budget. So, I selected one of his associate photographers, Simona. Simona was warm, friendly and so talented. I felt an instant connection with her when we met - important especially for someone who typically doesn't enjoy having their photo taken. During our engagement photo session she made us feel comfortable and captured beautiful photos. On the day of our wedding, Simona arrived early, was professional, so sweet, kept me calm, and took more beautiful photos.

Rob edited the photos and sent them along to me via a link to an online website as well as a DVD for me to keep. He was so quick - we actually received our wedding photos while we were on our honeymoon! I was thrilled. Rob is extremely responsive. Along the way he responded to all of my e-mails very, very quickly. He also has a very easy to use website allowing you to make payments online which was extremely convenient for me. I would highly recommend Rob and Simona.

We were extremely happy with Robert Holley Photography. We contracted with Simona, his associate for our wedding. Simona captured so many special moments and expressions throughout our wedding and reception. She was fun and charming and easy to work with. She put every one at ease. We could not have been happier. She came through for us in spite of the challenge of the huge power outage after the big storm in June.

Rob took some great shots of my daughter. Unfortunately he did not take some pictures that I thought were standard wedding photos. A picture of the bride with her parents would have been nice. He said I did not ask for one. So make a list and be very specific as to the pictures you want taken. Also do not question his work as I did. I could not believe a professional businessman would speak to me with such anger and then hang up. If you choose to use robert holley photography be prepared.

Rob did an amazing job on our engagement photos--we thought they were spectacular! He also did a lovely job on the first-look pictures of us the day of the wedding, and on the ceremony photos. My one complaint was that for some reason the day of the wedding he took almost no pictures of me at the reception! There are a ton of my husband and his friends, but literally it looks like I wasn't even there. (I wondered why I didn't see him around much, but I just thought he was doing his job and being rather out of sight, a "fly on the wall," as he put it.) I still don't understand how he missed me, and he didn't have an explanation after the fact. Also, he was sometimes unresponsive on emails. However, compared to what some photographers charge (ridiculous prices, in my opinion), he is a good value. Overall I would recommend him, because I think he has a great eye, but I guess I would be specific that you actually do want to be photographed at your own wedding!

I love Rob!!!! Not only did he give me a fabulous deal, but the pictures were breathtaking. I look at them every single day and I love them more each time!! I've gotten requests from 2 websites to use pictures from our wedding, and I know it's a combination of our amazing venue (Briar Patch) and Rob's incredible photography. He was incredibly flexible and understanding, and at no point did we stiffen up or feel unnatural while he was taking pictures. This goes for his staff as well; every single one of our pictures is print worthy. Thank you so much Rob, for capturing our wedding and providing us with pictures that we'll treasure for years!!

What a find! Ok really, our friends found him first, but we are so glad we used him as well. My fiance and I are not at all experienced at working with photographers and we were worried that we'd be a little stiff and uncomfortable in front of the camera, but Rob was such a nice and genuine person that he set us as ease. Rob really listened to what we wanted and let us do our ideas, and then he had some creative ideas of his own which were so fun! I loved that even after our before-the-reception photo session was over he stole us away for about 10 minutes after dinner was over because he had an idea for a night time shoot outside. What a wonderful day and I couldn't be happier with the photos Rob took, such a professional and an artist. I'll always remember the details of the flowers, my dress and jewelry, and just the extreme hapiness because Rob documented it so well. Thank you!!!!

I'm a meeting planner by occupation; when planning an event I typically research and meet with multiple vendors prior to deciding on/contracting one. When it came to a photographer for my own wedding I broke all my "rules" - I threw caution to the wind and booked the first photographer we met with, Rob Holley. We had a great meeting with him which was assuring, but we ultimately booked him because my fiance had a 'really good feeling' about him. We had a fun engagement shoot with Rob a week prior to our wedding (talk about waiting until the last minute). He was super fun and laid back - and made us feel super comfortable - especially me, who isn't a fan of getting her picture taken. We really liked our photos. Rob turned them around quickly for us so we could display some at our wedding the following weekend. Our wedding day was perfect and magical - I couldn't have asked for a better day. Rob did a beautiful job capturing our wedding from start to finish. We have amazing photos (of us, our friends + family, the venue, landscape and every little detail you can imagine) to look back on and remind us of our "perfect" day. We've looked at them almost every day the past month we have been married! We wish we could print every single one of them and line our walls with them! Our family and friends keep telling us how amazing they are - we've gotten such nice comments on them. I couldn't be happier with selecting Rob to be our wedding photographer! I would highly recommend Rob to anyone in need of a fantastic photographer, as would my now husband - who's Rob's biggest fan! :)

I cannot say enough good things about Rob and his team. He is a true GEM! From our first meeting I knew he and I had the same vision and after the engagement shots were complete it was apparent we had made the right decision in hiring him. Not only are the wedding pictures perfect but we had so much fun taking them! He is really creative and goes with the flow- most importantly, he made everyone (including my photo-phobic husband) feel relaxed and excited. I strongly recommend Rob Holley- he is the BEST!

Rob Holley is a master of his craft. Although we have not yet seen the photographs from the day of the event, his photos from the engagement shoot were absolutely stunning. Instead of subscribing to a particular photographic viewpoint (portraiture, photo-journalism, art photography), Rob seemed to balance all these different approaches. We sought out such a balance since our parents and guests all have different ideas of what they want in a wedding photo: some wanted a traditional family portrait for the mantle, others wanted a complete documentary of the day’s events, and I wanted something that would satisfy my own idiosyncratic tastes. The engagement shoot delivered on all counts. We used the images as gifts at the rehearsal dinner, and our families were blown away by the quality of his work.

Beyond the actual product, Rob was a relaxing, discreet, and sometimes hilarious presence. My wife and I are not used to having our pictures taken, and he did a great job of putting us at ease. His assistants Steve and Nicole were very friendly as well.

Rob Holley was great to work with. We could not afford his prices, but he provided an associate photographer, Steve Maxwell, whom we immediately liked, and whom we could afford. Steve is easy to be around and gives you a questionnaire to help define expectations. We showed him photos that we like and don't like and he seemed to pick up our taste easily. We got married aboard a sailboat, and Steve was great at being unobtrusive so that we could feel relaxed rather than that someone was in our face. I'm sure the photos will turn out well and can't wait to see them!

If you're looking for a non-cheesey, down-to-earth photographer then Rob is your guy! After meeting with a few photographers who seemed just a little too obsessed with photography details (lens sizes, angles, camera models) Rob was a breath of fresh air. Don't get me wrong, I wanted my photographer to use the best equipment available for my wedding but since I'm no expert at photography, I don't need to hear every single detail. I enjoy how Rob is straight to the point with things but while still being focused and totally about making sure you get what you want. Rob was easy to work with and his humor definitely match me and my husband's - which was important. Since neither of us are too comfortable in front of the camera, Rob was great at getting us to just be ourselves, almost nothing needed to be "staged". Most importantly, the pictures from my wedding turned out beautifully! I was so happy that him and his assistant (who is also AMAZING) were able to capture so many details. I would definitely recommend Rob to any bride!

Rob is an amazing photographer. Our pictures are truly wonderful and something I know I will cherish forever. Everyone keeps telling me how beautiful I look and how great the pics are, etc. We initially did an engagement shoot with Rob which I would highly recommend to any couple. The pictures were great but it also gave us an opporutnity to met Rob and get used to getting our pictures taken. We had a ton of fun. Rob has an infectious laugh and just seems like a very happy person so it is very easy to get comfortable with him very quickly. I also appreciated how quickly he sent us a link to all of the photos which we could send to family and friends. I would tell any bride to go to his website and browse the galleries and read his blog. What you see is what you get and it is truly wonderful. As for value I definitely feel that I got what I paid for and that Rob is very fairly priced for the talent you get. I do note that I have not recieved my album yet but Rob brought samples of albums to our first meeting and I am sure that I will be impressed and satified with the final product.

Having Rob and his crew shoot our wedding was and still is the best choice we made for our wedding! We'll have our photos forever and wanted to ensure they truly captured our personalities and our day; it far exceeded our expectations. His work, professionalism and personality were an automatic sell to me and my fiance and he has continued to please us with the finished product. Having talked with fellow married couples, we have come to find out that our turn around for receiving our photos is light years faster than others. For those who don't feel comfortable having your photo taken...call Rob, you feel like you're in the park with a friend.

Having Rob Holley shoot our engagment and wedding pictures was the best decision I made while planning my wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Rob, his assistant and second photographer. Joe and I were comfortable with Rob from the moment we met him. He is easy going and likable; so important when you're spending your entire wedding day with him! His eye for detail is amazing, but he doesn't make you pose and feel unnatural. He is practically invisable at the wedding, yet he got shots of every single moment. I have received about a million compliments on our pictures already, and I can't wait to see the album. We would highly, highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a profressional, likable and creative photographer who will shoot wedding pictures you only dreamed of having.

Rob was very willing to work with our schedules and needs for our engagement shoot as well as our actual wedding day. He is prompt with his responses/email communication and was very quick to turn around our wedding album. I highly recommend him for those who are looking for natural "non-posed" photography. We were looking for pictures that were natural and that's exactly what we got. He and and his team of assistants are professional and talented.

Robert was an amazing photographer! Both Chris and I were so impressed by his professionalism, we both knew we wanted to hire him the minute we left our first meeting. Our wedding photos turned out ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! We loved almost every single one and had a really hard time picking out which ones we wanted for our album! Our friends and family were equally impressed by Robert's work!

Using Rob Holley Photography was one of the best choices I made while planning our wedding. Rob’s photography speaks for its self, but there is more to it than just the photos….. He helped both of us feel very comfortable and relaxed while taking our engagement and wedding day photos. He and his staff are practically invisible during your day!

We could not have made a better choice than to go with Rob Holley for our wedding photographer! I cannot say enough good things about level of excellence of his service - do not miss the chance to work with him! From our very first meeting with Rob to talk about what we were looking for, we knew we had found the right photographer - not only was he willing to put a package together that worked for us, he was very concerned with listening to exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos, how we envisioned the day unfolding, and how we would want him and his team to be a part of that and capture our experience. Not only that, he is so much fun to work with!!!

Rob shoots in a wonderful photojournalistic style that really uniquely captures the spirit and beauty of his subject. I loved the photos on his website, and during this first meeting my fiancé and I were blown away by the quality of previous albums he had put together. We had an engagement session with Rob on a local beach, mostly to give us a chance to work with him before our wedding day, and my (now) husband and I were stunned at the beautiful pictures that came out of that session. We were also extremely impressed with the fact that he is able to show tremendous professionalism and rigorous attention to detail, but at the same time set us completely at ease and got us to relax to the point that we felt and looked completely natural in the pictures. Not only that, we had a great time!

Our wedding was in Santa Barbara, about a 100 mile drive for Rob and his team (a second photographer and an assistant). We had arranged to have Rob join me and my bridal party in our hotel suite while we were getting ready in order to have some shots of us before the wedding. He and his assistant arrived right on time, and they were so great to have around - they actually caught a few of my favorite shots of the day during this time.

During the ceremony and the reception, Rob and his team were not the least bit intrusive, but somehow managed to take many beautiful photos of every one of our guests. Most importantly, the photos my husband and I have of the two of us from that day are absolutely stunning.

Rob did a brilliant job of capturing all of the moments of our wedding day - not just the ones you typically see in wedding albums, but also many subtle and unique shots that the spirit of that day really carries through. I cannot recommend Rob Holley highly enough!
