I am a visual storyteller. I am a photojournalist. I document not just the people who attend an event but more than that, I document emotions - preserving real moments that come and go in an instant so they can be relived again and again. More than anything, I want my clients to feel at ease in front of the camera and HAVE FUN at their own wedding. I believe that most people photograph best when they don't even know they're being photographed. Send me a note or give me a call - I'd love to document YOUR story!

Robin Shotola is absolutely phenomenal. First off, she is warm, friendly, and easy-going, making you feel completely comfortable and at-ease during a hectic day. Secondly, she is also incredibly flexible and accommodating; she made sure that the time frame for the day worked for us, and went out of her way to meet my husband at the hotel early to capture his "getting ready" pictures. Finally, I cannot speak highly enough of her work product. The pictures she captured of our wedding went beyond our expectations: in addition to taking beautiful portraits of my husband and me, along with our closest family and friends, she captured the most stunning candids throughout the day and night: our "first look," the ceremony itself, our guests watching us, dancing at the reception, toasts, and much much more. Robin's background in photojournalism is evident as she somehow captured the tone and the joy of the evening in all of our faces. We will always be grateful for Robin, and look forward to looking at our pictures for many many years to come!

Robin is AMAZING. She got all the photos we wanted and ones we hadn't thought of. She has a keen sense of what will capture a moment. She's funny and intuitive and made the experience feel natural and easy.

Also she managed to pull off being everywhere at once and getting angles we're still trying to figure out. She managed to capture the story of us and our day in a way we never could have!

Robin is AMAZING. She is personable and fun and very easy going. She is both there and not there. She gets shots and angles you'd never think of, but she is never intrusive. She bring the professionalism of an experienced vendor and her presence is as warming as your favorite guest. Her pictures are GORGEOUS making it hard to decide what to do with each one (but that's an awesome problem to have). I would refer her to EVERYONE and we will use her again!

The pictures were fabulous. They were candid shots that told our story . Robin was able to capture all the little details of the day. She was not obtrusive and she made us feel comfortable when we posed for our pictures. All of our friends and family have enjoyed the pictures and are impressed with the quality. My husband is impressed that each shot looks like something you would see in a magazine.

We also got the photo booth option and the guest loved all the props. They also liked that they were able to see the pictures the next day on-line.

From the very first time we met Robin she set our mind at ease and continually impressed us with her professionalism and talent. As someone who hires photographers for a living in an agency setting, the groom was quite impressed with Robin's eye and her ability to capture every important moment, and the bride is still ooh-ing and aah-ing over the amazing shots Robin captured even to this day.

Robin gave great suggestions throughout the event and was able to direct us with virtually no effort in order to get the shots she knew would blow us away. She patiently listened to our requests and captured what we wanted to be the exciting and vibrant essence of the night.

We highly recommend Robin to any couple or wedding planner looking for an extremely talented, easy-to-work-with, kind photographer who can get the job done gracefully and exquisitely.

We are so glad we chose Robin to be our wedding photographer! She is a pleasure to work with and has a true gift of capturing perfect and stunning pictures. In addition to the list of poses we wanted, she caught all the details in unique as well as traditional angles. Our guests loved the photo booth – it was open, not a hot enclosed tent. She uploaded the photo booth pictures the next day that we could view online and share the link with our guests. The wedding pictures (1,354 of them!) were posted on a website that we could share. She created a spectacular 14-minute highlights slideshow with music. The gallery of pictures was organized into categories - preparation, ceremony, formals, reception, and engagement. Part of our package was receiving a disk of the original pictures without copyright. This was important to us in selecting a photographer so that we can upload and use the pictures. We could not have been happier with our wedding photographer!

As mother-of-the-bride, we were thrilled with Robin! Our pictures were spectacular, and she caught every moment and expression. She pays such attention to detail and presentation - from elegant paper to the classy website that posts the pictures to the beautiful customer CD labels. And we have SO many pictures to cherish :). Her service and kindness are exceptional!

She pays such attention to detail and presentation - from elegant paper to the classy website that posts the pictures to the beautiful customer CD labels. And we have SO many pictures to cherish :). Her service and kindness are exceptional! Read less

Robin was so great to work with! She met with us ahead of time to discuss our wedding plans and what we had in mind for our photography. She had such an eye for great shots and artistic angles, which made it easy to capture all of the little details of our day. Our pictures turned out better than we could have imagined and the compliments continue to pour in from our family and friends. She was especially fast with getting our proofs back to us and we enjoyed every minutes scouring through our gallery when we got home from our honeymoon.

As the mother of the groom, I conducted the business end with Robin Shotola. She was extremely professional in that regard. Robin Shotola is everything you would want your wedding photographer to be. She captured the spirit of the day perfectly, artfully and completely. Her wedding packages are a tremendous value. There is one thing in particular which sets Robin apart. After the wedding day, everyone is so anxious to see the photographs and relive the joy of the day. For many photographers, clients must wait months to get a glimpse of the portfolio of pictures. Not so with Robin. Two weeks, to the day, the pictures were posted and a link was provided for the bride and groom to share all the pictures with family and friends. Robin came highly recommended from a fellow photographer, who happens to be a family member and chose not to photograph so that she could share the day as a guest. How right she was to steer us to Robin. We couldn't be more pleased.

My husband and I knew right away we wanted Robin to be our wedding photographer when we started flipping through her albums. She takes amazing photos and captures images just beautifully. I am still shocked at how great our wedding photos turned out. Robin is there taking photos but is never in the way. I don't know how she captured all those photos but she did!

Robin was a pleasure to work with and a huge value! She will definitely be taking all future family photos.

What a fabulous photographer...Robin is a lovely person with an awesome spirit. I was recently married in Old Town, VA and she captured our day perfectly and so beautifully. Our theme was vintage-inspired and Robin did an amazing job of making that come to life in our photos. She is so kind and creative and super-professional. Robin goes above and beyond to document love and hope so that it lives forever through the lens. I recommend her without hesitation!

My photograher has a great personality, and on top of that, she is really talented. We really enjoyed having her with us on the day of the wedding. She even came with the girls to the hairdressers that morning. I am just so impressed with the photos, she captured every moment of the day, and I know I will cherish those photos forever. I am so happy we used Robin as our photographer. I will continue to recommend her for many years. If you could see the photos you would understand - amazing!

Robin Shotola Photography
I agonized about choosing a photographer, interviewed several, debated about it for hours, and talked about it endlessly with friends. In the end, I chose Robin Shotola and I couldn’t have been happier. First of all, she was so easy to work with and is genuinely a nice person. Her assistant Danielle was also amazing. Both photographers were able to capture moments without being intrusive. This is sometimes hard to do with my side of the family as we tend to be camera shy/awkward. I talked with her about the kinds of shots I wanted and she was able to take pictures of everything that I asked. I even asked to take pictures of me and my husband in his Jeep, and they turned out fantastic. Choosing Robin as my photographer was one of the best decisions I made. I love our pictures, as do our family and friends. One even made its way into the Washington Post! I highly recommend getting the photobooth add-on as well. It was such a hit with our guests.

Robin was simply awesome! If you are looking for fine art and/or journalistic-style photography, book her now. She will make you look and feel beautiful and really capture the mood and happiness of the occasion without you having to feel too self-conscious and overly posed. We picked her based on her portfolio (and how nice she was during our first meeting) and our engagement pictures were even better - we looked great but still like ourselves and her artistry really showed in the photo composition and shot selection. She had great suggestions and ideas and provided good direction to get the best shots while not making you feel too manipulated so you still look natural in front of the camera. At our wedding we were allowed to just enjoy our day without the photography being obtrusive and Robin coordinated all the posed/wedding party shots so we didn't have to worry about making sure we got them all.

For our wedding we did the full day package - it is a bit of an investment but more than worth it and comes with engagement photography which was great to get us comfortable in front of the camera and to have great pics to give as gifts for family members. There are other packages available and Robin is flexible and will work with you to get you whatever you want at a price point that's comfortable for you. She even made it so we could incorporate some day-of shots into our slideshow, which guests really enjoyed and also offers a photo booth which we didn't use but would have it it fit in the budget. Take it from someone who has been through planning a wedding, if it's important to you do NOT cheap out on photography. Of course you're on a budget and have to make cuts but this is the one thing for which I'm glad we went with quality and not quantity.
