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 did an amazing job documenting the day of my wedding. The photos--both the family portraits and the candid moments--turned out beautifully. Looking over the photos, I was able to relive the events of the ceremony and reception. Truly priceless. Robin was super easy to work with, always professional, and just an all around wonderful person. I highly recommend her services!

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.
