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.
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.
Rob and his team were a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning, Rob communicated his vision very professionally and clearly. We felt comfortable and trusted his plan would achieve an awesome representation of our family, friends and ceremony all at once. Thanks Rob for sharing your commitment and craft on our special day.
Rob clearly knows what he is doing. He was able to navigate every little bump, from one of my groomsmen showing up late to confusion about the setup of the altar. He has great artistic talent, but also knows how to manage people and keep things rolling. He put all of our groomsmen and bridesmaids at ease and helped us enjoy the pre-wedding pictures almost as much as the reception! Very grateful for his organization and professionalism.
Where to begin? Well, I looked at MANY different photographers and their wedding portfolios and none captured my attention like Rob Greer’s photos. The quality of pictures and the shots he took—I had to have him be my photographer. I was a little scared to find out how much he’d cost because his pictures were so superior to others I had seen and I was scared that I wouldn't like his personality as much as I liked his pictures. But, he was worth every penny and then some, and I walked out of our first meeting thinking, "He's the one!" For several months I was really excited to work with him! Then came the engagement session. I knew it was going to be difficult to get my now husband to relax and loosen up in front of the camera but he made us feel so comfortable. The pictures were great, the experience was great—I can go on and on. Then came the wedding. He gave us what we wanted and more. I'm pretty self conscious when it comes to taking pictures too but I put all my faith in him and his direction and his talent and he never disappointed! If I could have him come with me and capture every important moment in my life I would. If I had to go back make the choice of photographer again, I wouldn't change a thing. If I know anybody that needs a photographer for anything, I would recommend him in a heartbeat. The entire experience was more than fantastic. I can't thank him enough for everything and for making it such a fun experience!
My partner and I got married on 11/1/13 in California. I did a lot of online research. When I got to Rob Greer's website, I knew my search was over. His website, accolades, and photographs were quite impressive. The photographs were so detailed and exquisite and seem to capture the moment and emotions perfectly. You felt like you were there. I also read on the internet many reviews of past customers and they were a testimony to Rob's remarkable expertise. Many were like us, who had never taken professional photos before.
We scheduled the engagement session with Rob for 10/28/13. A week before the session the forecast called for rain on the day we were to shoot. I was a nervous wreck. I kept calling Rob worried about how the weather might affect our day. He was extremely patient and kind, assuring me it hardly ever rain in CA and it would work out. I must have called him 5 times over the course of the week. He assured me by some chance if it does rain we could schedule for another day.
The session was awesome and it did not rain. Rob was just as nice and friendly in person as he was over the phone. He has a great sense of humor and was focused on making this a memorable, fun and relaxing experience. He is an artist behind the camera. He has an expert eye, direction, imagination and attention to detail. The end result was even beyond what we had hoped. The photos were spectacular.
Every single person we have shared our pictures with were beyond impressed. Their positive responses just reinforced what we knew all along about choosing Rob. I strongly recommend Rob to anyone who desires their special day, event, wedding or engagement session to be photographed by one of the best in the business. You will not be disappointed. Your pictures tell a story that you want to always cherish. There is no one better than Rob to trust it will be done with great care, professionalism and to your full satisfaction.
We couldn't be happier that we chose Rob to be the photographer to capture the most memorable day of our lives! We came across his pictures while browsing through numerous wedding blogs online. We really liked his style of photography. His pictures were a perfect blend of timeless/classic with added personality of the couple. He was the first and only photographer we met with and the easiest vendor we dealt with while planning our wedding.
Rob is a true professional and very passionate about his work. He prepares you with many helpful documents and really guides you through the entire process. He responds quickly to email correspondences and always arrives early. On our wedding day, he started shooting 30 mins before our contract time and captured some spontaneous, fun photos of me and my bridesmaids!
The day of the wedding went by so fast and certain moments were a blur, but Rob captured every meaningful moment in just one perfect picture. We didn't have a videographer and I don't regret it one bit because when I look at one of Rob's pictures, it tells the entire story of that moment. We attended 7 weddings this year, including our own, and we can't help but compare. Sure others had better floral arrangements, dance floor, or lighting, but we for sure had the best photographer! And as an added perk, Rob posts a few pictures on facebook the very next day! We highly recommend Rob and can't thank him enough for capturing our wedding so beautifully.
When looking for our photographer for our wedding, Rob Greer was one of the only ones that stood out from the rest. His pictures were absolutely stunning and really had that style of what we wanted in a photographer. We ultimately chose to go with Rob because we felt his pictures were timeless and beautiful and did not require a lot of filters like a lot of the more trendy photographers are using nowadays. This, of course, is a preference, but it was what we wanted.
After we finally chose Rob, he sent us many documents with research on locations for our engagement session, what colors to wear, what time of day, and where we would need permits (if any). The man knows his stuff and you can tell it comes from just having tons of experience. Rob by far was the most professional of all of our vendors and knew exactly what to do, when to do it, and how to get it done.
We did both the engagement session and the wedding coverage with Rob. Both my wife and I are not really big into taking a lot of pictures of ourselves but Rob made it very easy for us and knew how to get the shots that he wanted. Sometimes it felt weird posing or standing a certain way but once we saw the end result, we had no complaints. Rob will get the shots and they will be amazing.
The wedding day was a blur, but luckily Rob perfectly captured every major element of our wedding and we were able to relive it through the photos. He can really capture your day without having to take a bunch of random pictures. He does direct a little, but it really is worth it because the pictures from our wedding were amazing. Everyone comments on how great the pictures are and we wholeheartedly agree. If we had to do it all over again, we would only pick a few of the same vendors and Rob is for sure the first one we would call, and that can't be said for every one of our vendors - BELIEVE me.
Rob is a true professional who captured our beautiful wedding (and engagement photos) and helped turn them into lifetime memories!
Rob was a bit on the high end of our budget, but based on past reviews we decided to meet and see what he had to offer. The first thing I noticed upon meeting Rob at his home/office was how amazing the decor was. The landscaping was beautiful and the house was very tastefully done. I thought in my head...if this guy manages himself and his house so well, he has to be a real pro. My thoughts proved correct. Rob is an absolute pro that simply gets the job done with fantastic results. There were a lot of family to arrange and he handled them with aplomb. Rob managed to lower our stress levels and take charge when needed. I HIGHLY recommend Rob Greer photography. Great guy, beautiful pics, and the right attitude to get it done. He was worth every penny!
From the first meeting with him, I knew that I wanted to work with him. Obviously my husband and I liked his photography style (otherwise we wouldnt have met with him), but it was his approach that I really liked. Like me, he likes to be extremely organized about the day and will definitely help move you along to stay on track. He worked with us on getting the timeline down to what fit our schedule and budget and he definitely made it work! We have so many great pictures to choose from.
He was great with the kids in the wedding party and got them all to laugh for the photos. I have so many comments from family and friends who were at the wedding about how much they liked the photographer.
If Rob is in your budget, he is worth every penny!
I'm a guy who hates being the center of attention. So, the idea of having 60 people watching me take my vows and being photographed on top of it all was not my idea of a dream day. But after doing a ton of research and meeting more photographers than I ever thought possible, I/we realized that Rob was really they only way to go. He was great. I've got awesome photos that I not only feel comfortable displaying but am excited to.
I was probably one of the most particular brides Rob has worked with. I'm a film director and professional photographer as well. So, you can imagine what the screening process was for all of our vendors.
The moment we met Rob, we knew that he was the right photographer. Of all of the photographers we met with---and we met with MANY, Rob was the only one that guaranteed that he'd be the one photographing our wedding. Other vendors would meet with us but then say that one of their associates would photograph it---meaning, we really wouldn't have any idea what the person's personality is like. My fiance/husband is camera shy and it was very important for him to be acquainted with the photographer well before the wedding. Rob was also the only one we met with that had a great photo presentation without doing a hard sell on us. He gave us the room we needed to make our own decision so we could feel solid about it. Trust me, that's rare in the wedding industry!
When the big day actually arrived, I got so much more than a photographer. While I had a "day of coordinator," nothing changed the fact that any payment issues, lost guests, etc. would end up coming through my mobile phone. I was so miserable and tired that morning. The moment Rob arrived, everything became more light and fun. He was ultimately the person who kept me sane in the midst of all of that chaos. Plus...he knows how to place a veil and bustle a dress!
As someone in the arts, I'll say that his photography skills and professionalism is something we all aspire to. But as a bride, I'll say that I probably would have become a momentary bridezilla had he not been there. We're looking forward to someday having Rob photograph us on an anniversary and do portraits as our family grows. The wedding portraits and candids are amazing. He captured the beauty and importance of the day while also capturing the humor. He brings out the joy and sincerity out of anyone. He's the best there is.
Where to start... Rob put the "professional" in his title of "wedding professional." He not only did his job as photographer by producing stunning photos, the caliber of which are displayed on his site, but he was a sheer delight with which to work. From engagement photos to our big day, he was prompt, prepared, fun and funny, and just made us feel so at ease. He even helped put out some fires the day of the wedding: way beyond his call of duty. He thinks of everything and helps you prepare for little details that make your life so much easier. He responds to calls and emails right away and is eager to do anything he can to get you what you want when you want it. We love our photos and get compliments from everyone on not just how great WE (my husband and I look) but on the photography work overall. They're not just photos- they're really like art. Sounds cheesy but it really is true- he is that good. We wish that all our vendors were as amazing as Rob! He's worth every penny and you should have him be your photographer too! Plus he snorts when he laughs and it's pretty disarming. :)
