When I began looking for a wedding photographer I was sure of only one thing - I didn't want my photos to look like every other wedding photo I had ever seen. I did want some traditional shots, but I wanted a photographer who had a quirky twist, while still being mindful of all of the aspects of good photography. I am extremely particular, and I literally looked at almost 30 photographers and contacted 8 before I hired Rob.
I discovered Rob's profile here on The Knot. The image that you see next to his name on here caught my eye and after evaluating the gallery on his website, I called him up. We talked for 45 minutes - and not only did he listen to what I wanted and what I was looking for - he made suggestions on how to make them happen. He was brutally honest with me as well - discussing the logistics of why some of the shots that I wanted may not work based on time, location, and light - which was really helpful to me - I wanted to use our time optimally to create the best shots possible - who doesn't?
We opted to do an engagement shoot with Rob about 6 months before the wedding which was really helpful - especially for my now-husband. Rob immediately put us both at ease and my husband, who would rather have a root canal than have his photo taken, actually left the shoot saying how much fun he had. Not to mention, our photos are gorgeous.
So, when Rob and his second photographer showed up on our wedding day we thought we knew what to expect. We didn't. He far exceeded our expectations that day - he was fun, relaxed, and willing to roll with the punches. It felt like one of our good friends was our photographer - we were so comfortable with Rob and our family all fell in love with him too. By the end of the night, everyone was laughing and joking with him as if he were a part of our family - he fit right in.
I also want to say that Rob went above and beyond to accomodate our wishes. Due to our budget we were only able to hire him for a certain amount of time, and technically that time was up right before the toasts and before dinner began. Rob helped us to stage a cake cutting (that looks JUST like the real thing in photos) and stayed through the toasts even though we were running late. We invited Rob to stay for dinner, and he did - laughing and joining in with the fun and festivities. However, when he saw the incredible sunset - he grabbed us and asked if we wanted to take some photos. Of course we said yes, and as with all the rest of the photos from that day - the photos are stunning.
My husband and I were still out, celebrating with our friends on the night of our wedding and Rob was home uploading photos of us from the day to Facebook. We were SO excited and couldn't believe we were able to get a sneak peek of the images so quickly. Then, while we were on our honeymoon, he delivered the other 857 photos. We spent an entire afternoon in Bora Bora flipping through the images, each one of them better than the last.
Hiring Rob to take our photos was the best choice and investment we made in planning our wedding. It has only been a month, but now that all of the other details are fading into the distant corners of my memory, I'm thankful to have these incredible photos that will last forever. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rob and his level of expertise and professionalism. Thank you Rob!
Rob Greer was a pleasure to work with. From our first initial meeting with Rob, he was detailed and thorough. My husband and I knew exactly what to expect when it came to the quality of our photos, details about pricing, and details concerning our engagement session and wedding day. Working with Rob was pretty straightforward and easy. During our engagement session, we were initially a little nervous. Neither my husband nor I had ever taken professional photos in this fashion before. Rob was patient with us, even when I was a little tense because of my husband's goofiness. He was sure to take us step by step through the process. Rob produced such high quality engagement photos that I was not the least bit nervous for our wedding day coverage. When our big day arrived, Rob was not only on time, but early. This gave him and our second shooter time to take pictures of the details (e.g. invitation, flowers, newspaper for the day, shoes, dress, etc.). Rob made the engagement session and bridal party pictures a fun experience! He had many creative ideas on how to pose us, but also took all of our suggestions as well. So now, we have some really fun and fantastic photos of the men holding bouquets and the women holding the sabers. He even captured some of my favorite candid moments of the wedding. Everything that was planned in terms of photography, Rob Greer has delivered above and beyond our expectations!
Rob is terrific at getting the best out of his models, er, wedding parties. He managed to make everyone feel comfortable in their various poses by joking and teasing, while keeping to a very strict plan and timeline. He made sure to get all the shots and even helped move the wedding and reception along when things got a little disjointed.
We appreciated how responsive and communicative he was leading up to the wedding. He was very clear about the who, what, when and where. When we told him the budget we had, he was great about helping us prioritize services so that we could get the things we cared about without breaking the bank.
Rob Greer is a fabulous! Rob made the process easy, comfortable and fun. He was great at communicating, finding out what we liked and capturing it. Since our wedding, we have received countless compliments about the photos. They are crisp, clean and modern (yet timeless). When looking back on all of our wedding expenses, Rob's photography was worth every penny.
If there was a piece of advice I could offer any couple planning their wedding it would be this: Hire the best photographer your budget can afford. I was adamant about finding the best photographer we could find and it took my number one priority when wedding planning started. After searching through several pages of photographers on the wedding circuit (wedding wire, the knot, wedding bee), I had only come across (maybe) 3 photographers that had caught my eye- the number one contender being Rob Greer. I was immediately drawn to his style- classic, clean and timeless photos. Nothing trendy or gimmicky- they were simply photos that told a story. This is what I was looking for. I was not simply looking to find someone to capture our moments but someone who would articulate our specific story through photos that spoke to the viewer. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Comb through the highlighted photos on Rob Greer’s website- they don’t just speak a thousand words, they tell you a thousand stories, each one unique to the couple/family/individual being captured.
If you are deciding on pictures alone, Rob’s portfolio is enough to end your search. But on top of being such a professional creative genius behind the lens, Rob is simply a good guy to be around. He made us feel comfortable at both our engagement shoot and wedding day. He put us at ease, he made us laugh, and was just a genuinely cool dude to hang out with. Maybe this is why he is able to capture such warm and interesting photos- he actually cares about making his subjects comfortable in front of the camera!
Hiring Rob was the smartest and best decision we made while wedding planning. Rob is a nothing but a pleasure to work with- smart and honest with talent beyond measure. He was easily accessible for any questions you might have and was an index of amazing wedding advice and tips to keep in mind during wedding planning. But all that is an extra bonus when picking Rob. His photos speak for themselves. Rob is THE wedding photographer. Do yourself a favor and sign him before he gets booked!
I like to think that I am stickler for high standards and attention to detail so of course when it came to shopping for wedding vendors it was no easy task, except when we made the decision to INVEST in Rob Greer's services. What first attracted us to him was his photographic style, it stood out from all the other plain vanilla photos we've seen from friends' weddings. In fact, contrary to "comparison shopping," Rob was the first and only photographer we met with. From the moment we met with him in his (beautiful) home to his very impressive presentation, we were honestly blown away. His presentation was like no other vendor's we've encountered, by far.
In no way we are saying he's for everybody, but he definitely was perfect for us. He is the type of person that will leave nothing to chance, and speaking after our wedding event, we've learned how important that is. Rob is the epitome of the aforementioned high standards and attention to detail that we look for. His structure to his services and thoroughness leaves nothing in the dark. The passion he has for his craft is very evident.
When it came to the actual photography portion of our investment, he handled our engagement shoot and wedding coverage with the utmost professionalism yet was still very personable and humorous. At our initial engagement shoot location, security enforced a new rule that neither we or Rob knew about (he shot there many times before that with no problems) requiring us to have a permit so we were immediately kicked out. Rob, however, did try to get a hold of his contact at the venue to no avail. Admittedly, we were very bummed because we chose that location for a reason, but Rob gave us some suggestions and we moved on to a nearby favorite location of his. Although our predicament was no fault of his, he had it in control and our shoot was still a success.
The day of our wedding, as is the experience with most people, was definitely surreal and seemed to be a blur so to speak. Photographers are most likely the only vendor you will have the most contact with on your big day and once again Rob and his second shooter Vanessa made us feel at ease and comfortable. (Rob even let all my groomsmen touch and play with his newly acquired iPhone 6 Plus which had just come out the day before!) This guy trusted us way too much! But perhaps that just may be his style, he will be silly at times and trust you and in return, you cant help but feel relaxed and trust that he will do an amazing job.
Due to a late start at the ceremony, our reception timeline got pushed back 30-45 minutes. Rob, being the play maker he is, controlled the field and got us back to within a reasonable time frame by adjusting where when and how he would take our photos. He was always in clear communication with us first and foremost before working things out with the MC/caterer/driver.
Days after our wedding, among other things, we received several compliments from guests about "the photographer," They mentioned how funny he was and how cordial he was with those he was photographing. This to us not only shows professionalism but pure class, after all, our guests weren't the ones investing in his services. His photos speak for themselves, but his character, also, is something he holds to a high standard. We are 100% happy that we invested in Rob Greer, the adage "you get what you pay for" rings true in this case. Thanks again Rob!
Creative... Organized... Punctual... Rob is a gifted professional in the highest sense! You can relax in knowing that you're going to get great photos. And you'll get exactly what you agree upon. Rob was the very first vendor my husband and I locked in as we knew we wanted to have the best photos possible to capture our big day. Needless to say, we are thrilled with the amazing museum quality images he created for us. And it's been wonderful to see how captivated and pleased our friends and family have been by his work - with many of them commenting that the photos should be published in a magazine. Definitely check him out!
Using Rob Greer Photography is absolutely one of the best decisions my wife and I made when planning our June wedding earlier this year. Actually, Rob was the first vendor we locked in. We knew that we wanted the very best photos possible to document our big day. And after looking at numerous photography websites we landed on Rob's page. All of the work on his website immediately resonated with us. Lots of wonderful images. If fact, all of our guests and facebook friends continue to rave about our wedding photos. Rob is an amazing photographer with a wonderful sense of composition. It's no wonder that he's won awards. He pushes himself to be the best and his passion makes for some magical imagery. On the business end of things, he is very structured and particular. Everything is laid out on his website in great detail with all of the costs and procedures listed very clearly. While his pricing isn't cheap, I do believe it's fair. And the work is certainly spectacular. Rob and his assistants were totally fired up on our wedding day. And they totally hit it out of the park! We have some incredible photos that we look forward to passing down to our family... Visual heirlooms all made possible by his exceptional level of artistry! Thanks Rob!!!
Rob was nothing short of amazing! He offered lots of great advice during the planning stage, and has lots of great reading material on his website. We chose Rob based on his portfolio- his work is fresh and fun, and really comes alive. He was also really great on the day of- very personable and really took the time to get everyone to look their best. His assistant was wonderful too. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with his work, and our guests can't say enough about how pleased they are with the photos. Highly recommended!!
Rob's portfolio online played a big part in the decision to hire him from my point of view as I was in the UK at the time and didn't have the opportunity to meet him, unlike my wife who met with him initially, until we did the engagement shoot that came as part of the package! This made me a bit hesitant at first but Rob was a consumate professional from start to finish. I was at ease the whole time, he was very good at explaining what he was doing and why so that we could also help to bring the best out in our wedding photography, he kept us on our toes and kept us laughing and smiling. And that was just the engagement shoot!
I think that the engagement shoot was a really good idea, it gives you the chance to relax and get to know Rob without any pressure and to enjoy an afternoon taking some photos before the big day.
The wedding day itself went really smoothly, I was with Rob's second, she was lovely and unobtrusive, some lovely photos of myself and the groomsmen getting ready, I think the room we were getting ready in at the venue wasn't the best for light but she made good use of what she had and then we had fun doing a whole bunch of shots all over the venue.
We were then all ready for the first look and Rob did his best to make me overcome with emotion, all the while my wife was stood right behind me! Throughout the ceremony and dinner I pretty much had no idea where Rob and his second were but the photos look wonderful! They have captured some brilliant moments of levity, love and laughter. My wife looks resplendant in her dress, I look pretty dapper in my suit if I say so myself! The photos really reflect the amazing incredible day that we had and everyone that we shared it with. Rob and Dina did a wonderful job and I look forward to sharing the photos with my family and friends.
Rob is an incredible photographer and amazing to work with! My whole family and I were nothing but impressed with Rob from start to finish. We had a lot of fun and felt very comfortable working with him. He's great at handling different personality types and does all he can to "help the day of" run smoothly for the bride and groom. We had an amazing wedding with wonderful photos to show for it and I know that's in part to the fabulous job the Rob did! I cannot recommend him enough to anyone looking for a photographer.
Rob is great is getting the best of the venue and You as a couple, better than expected. Worth the $$!
Rob was fabulous! He handled all the various personalities very well, organized everyone patiently, and even gave framing tips to all the cell phone photographers who where driving us all crazy. Highly recommend this photographer! The photos certainly captured the event. So easy to work with.
When I first started the process of planning my wedding, I hadn't thought much of the photographer as I was busy trying to find a venue. One of Rob's portraits happened to be displayed at one of the venues where I happened to be looking, and I just couldn't take my eyes off it....the picture was that amazing! I knew at that moment, I had found our photographer! Sure, I had gone through the motions of looking at and speaking to other photographers over the phone, but knew no one's work even came close to what I had seen that day or in Rob's online portfolio. His pictures are truly works of art! Rob was the first and only photographer we met with, and we booked him on the spot! My then fiancé and I were so impressed by his meeting/presentation, professionalism, and skill. We were confident we were in great hands!
Rob did an absolutely phenomenal job capturing our wedding day! From beginning to end, we have an incredible picture story. He demonstrated great skill in getting just the right shots while creating a setting in which everyone in our wedding party actually had fun taking wedding party photos! Rob not only took great shots of us, but he also was able to get some remarkably priceless shots of our parents, family members, and even our friends! Everyone keeps raving about our awesome pictures!
If you are looking forward to having best wedding pictures ever, (and who doesn't??? ) then Rob is your guy! My husband and I are so very happy with his work, and know you will be too!
My wife and I hired Rob to photograph our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the results. A few thoughts:
1. Rob takes excellent photos. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, check out his website to see some examples of his style. And while what you see there will give you a sense of his style, he isn't a mechanical photographer who takes the same shot over and over. He adapted extremely well to our preferences, venue, and wedding, and created a whole set of unique shots that my wife and I love. The hardest part was narrowing down our favorite the photos to fit into an album.
2. Rob is easy to work with. He showed up to everything on time, responds to emails and calls promptly, got along well with our other vendors, and provided us with so much helpful information and input about the photography process and wedding experience. And to get his great shots, Rob never "got in the way." He always was ready to get the shot, but he never was obtrusive, took over, or otherwise interfered with the day.
3. Rob is a great value. For all of the services that he provides, Rob is an excellent value. Between our engagement session and wedding, we received well over a thousand photos, and he provided us with digital copies of all the photos to share with friends and family. Furthermore, while Rob isn't a wedding coordinator, his advice is almost coordinator-like. He provided thoughts on our wedding day timeline and vendor recommendations, helped calm an anxious relative, and other similar services.
As father of the bride I had few choices in wedding preparation. What I did get to do was look over the many photographer websites and help select. The one that stood out was Rob Greer Photography. His pictures had a creative flare that in my opinion were unparalleled. It was a no-brainer unanimous decision he was our choice. I didn't have a chance to meet Rob prior to the wedding day, but I knew as a former Marine like myself I could trust that he would have the same attention to detail as I would have. The day of the wedding when Rob arrived at least an hour earlier than what he had said and mapped out his plan of action, I knew we were in good hands. He helped us tweak the seating arrangements in the garden for the best possible photo opportunities. My daughter, her fiancé and Rob set off for some pre wedding photos and Rob somehow finagled his way into a well-known celebrity's spectacular gated property where he took some amazing pictures in the garden. Simply incredible photos. Aside from his beautiful photography he bailed me out of a sticky situation with my daughter when I was unavoidably detained at the reception site trying to pull all the last minute stuff together. Unbeknowest to me my daughter was waiting for me for the initial roll out. I being completely oblivious to this, saw my daughter as I drove up, probably cutting it a little close to wedding time, and whipped out my cell phone to take some pictures. I would personally like to thank you, Rob, for saving my a$% and diffusing that situation. He captured photos of our father/daughter dance that makes me shed a tear every time I see them. Basically, if you're looking for a wedding photographer, the search ends here.
When my daughter called with news of her engagement my husband and I immediately reminisced about our wedding moments! We pulled out our photo album of 35 years ago and said "Oh, Lordy, we have got to make sure she and her betrothed have wedding photos that are timeless and beautiful, not frightful!" Our children loved to look at our wedding photos when they were little and I cringed every time the album came out! I wanted my daughter and her husband-to-be to have photos to cherish forever and be proud to show their children! The very first thing we did is scour over SCORES of photographer websites looking for "THE PHOTOGRAPHER." I'm not kidding when I say scores. Night after night we poured over those websites. And then we saw Rob's pictures. It was love at first sight. We sent the engagees an email with our favorite 10 and hoped they'd see what we saw. And they did! His work is beautiful. The fact that he was a former marine like my husband only bolstered "the love." I cannot say enough good things about Rob. He was far and away our favorite vendor. He even tweaked the placement of my daughter's veil to perfection! He was professional, detailed, fun, quirky and his photos are gorgeous! He captured so many beautiful moments-in-time that I would have never seen otherwise. He delivered in every aspect and I will recommend him to anyone that asks! When my sons get married, he's number one on my list! No need to look any further. You cannot go wrong with Rob! 5 stars is not enough.
Impeccable photos, all-star personality, and a true professional in every sense of the word. Rob talks-the-talk and the exceptional caliber of images speak for themselves; but out of the well over 20 vendors in the wedding planning process Rob was the ONLY one who walked-the-walk. Rob makes only promises he can deliver, he will tell you like it is, and he will not disappoint you when all is said and done. I am hyper critical of myself in photos and I loved every one Rob took of me on my wedding day. Aside from looking good, the next most important thing to me was my wedding running on schedule and Rob was supremely paramount in making that actually happen. I know it’s incredibly important that a photographer take great pictures, but you have no idea how important it is for the photographer to also be a highly organized until that big day comes. Rob embodies that rare combination of a true artist, but also a genuine professional; a vital mix needed for a successful wedding. Rob is a wealth of knowledge and throughout the whole planning process sent articles, tips, and advice on any number of issues. Sometimes we thought it was over-the-top all the tips, but we always came back to the fact that we were so thankful we actually hired a photographer that cared so much about the quality of his product and the satisfaction of his client that he was willing to spend so much extra time to make sure we were as educated as possible. When the big day came, we could not be more pleased that we read each and everything he sent us and tried our best to adhere to his recommendations and expertise. We did not do our part perfectly, but Rob still did his perfectly, and we can’t ever thank him enough.
Rob and his assistant Vanessa photographed our June wedding at the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Palos Verdes, CA. We chose Rob as a photographer because his photos made us feel like we knew the people in them. Each photo we saw made us feel the emotion of the moment and that is what we wanted to be captured on our special day.
Leading up to the wedding, Rob was friendly and down-to-earth, while also maintaining the utmost level of professionalism. He was detailed and thorough, and made us feel confident that the timeline of our day was in good hands.
On our wedding day, Rob and his second photographer, Vanessa, felt like old friends. From nicknaming our wedding party to making sure we were hydrated, they made us feel so comfortable while helping to create and capture wonderful moments with our friends and family. Our getting ready photos were HILARIOUS. Let's just say fancy pinwheel sandwiches turned into eyeballs and winky faces got fierce in a hurry. So much fun to do and even more fun to see in a photo! The First Looks that I did with my father and my husband were moments that I will never forget. Not only did the photos turn out beautifully, but Rob really celebrated each moment with us. For example, when my dad was waiting to turn and look at me for the first time in my wedding gown, Rob reminded him that for 27 years, I've been his little girl, but that when he turned around, he would see me as the woman I have become. Needless to say, we were both sobbing happy tears when we saw each other. For the couple's First Look, we were both so nervous that we kind of just stared at each other, smiling. Then Rob told me to tell my fiance why I loved him. When I did, we not only had a beautiful moment on our wedding day, but also photographic evidence of my husband crying.
Throughout the day, Rob was kind enough to take portraits of couples and families that were at our wedding- which our guests loved! How often do you get to have a professional photo taken of you and your loved ones in your Sunday best?
Some of our favorite photos came from an unexpected photo shoot as the sun was getting low. Rob came up to us and said 'This is it! We've got like 5 minutes to capture this light! Let's go!' We loved the end result and we loved the spontaneity! It also provided us with a very intimate, sweet and romantic moment to share as a newly married couple. For me, this was that moment when time stopped, and all I could see was my husband.
Our goal in the beginning was for someone to document our wedding day. But what Rob gave us was something much more than that. He captured exactly who we are as a couple, and as individuals, laughing, crying, and being silly. Most of all, he captured our love for one another and our families on one of the most important days of our lives. I wasn't just satisfied with our experience with Rob, I was greatly impressed. And so were all of our guests and other vendors. If you are looking for someone that will make your day run smoothly, teach you how to hold your train so it doesn't get dirty, take stunning photos that will make you relive each moment like it was yesterday, and who is just a real nice guy in general, Rob is your guy. Thank you for everything!
Rob was absolutely fantastic. He handled everything throughout the day with a great deal of professionalism. He kept us on schedule which we both really liked. He was extremely patient at all times and always knew the right locations for the best pictures. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone and you will not be dissapointed.
