The Best Choice We Made For Our Wedding

Reviewed on 10/15/2012 Erika L

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... Read More 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!

Our first and favorite. I knew from the moment that I happened upon Rob's portfolio online that I needed him to be our wedding photographer. We interviewed several others, but we were not only blown away by the quality of his photos, but the knowledge and obsessive... Read More detail-orientation that he brings to the craft. We have not been disappointed. Rob photographed our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, and big day. Here's why you should hire Rob in a nutshell: 1) His images are timeless - all his photos are centered around people, not the background. His eye for detail is unparalleled, and his photos are the type that will remain relevant today, tomorrow, and for years to come. 2) He makes taking photos fun - we had many folks in our wedding party that weren't the most jazzed about having their picture taken, but they were converts after Rob. Whether it is making up funny nicknames, cracking jokes, or just generally being the coolest dude ever, he makes you want to laugh, smile, and most importantly, want to become his best friend. Multiple friends have commented on the experience being the best they ever had with a photographer. 3) He tells it to you straight / knows his stuff - Rob knows what is good and bad, and we have trusted his professional judgment on all things related to the wedding. He was an essential part of planning our details for the big day, and helped advise our other vendors about placement, timing, etc. Look no former than the wedding planning portion of his website to know that he knows what works and what doesn't - Rob's know how allows him to secure all the little details necessary to get that perfect shot. 4) Follows through and follows up - You're not just another client to Rob. He's in demand and can be choosy about who he works with (he caps how many weddings he takes on in a year). He truly wants to ensure the best possible outcome for all of his clients, and goes out of the way to check in, both before and after the wedding, to not only make sure what he needs is secured, but also to provide perspective and feedback on what would be best overall for your big day. BOTTOM LINE - Our first vendor, our favorite vendor. BOOK HIM, and book him fast, else someone else is going to get lucky and you'll be missing out.


Amazing Photographer

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... Read More 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!

We came across Rob Greer during an online search in our early wedding planning stages. I brought an entourage ( parents, fiancé, Mother In Law to be) with me to officially meet him at his house. He blew us away with his warm hospitality, an incredible viewing of hisbwork and his... Read More artistic creativity. My fiancé and I were looking for a photographer who was different and who really captured art since we were wanting to frame our wedding photos and hang them on the walls of our future home. Rob is unlike any photographer I have come across. He is creative and provides a quirky viewpoint and sense of humor. I used to hate taking photos but he made me feel so at ease and comfortable and now I'm a pro (say hahahaha!). On top of his creative work, he is extremely organized, detailed oriented, and great at answering any question ( i always ask a lot of questions) in a timely manner. Sometimes if the emailing back and forth was getting too complicated he was always willing to jump on a quick call. When the wedding day finally arrived all of his organized detail paid off, he was flexible when things went off schedule and produced THE MOST beautiful photos that my husband and I cannot wait to frame and put them on the walls of our home in the future.

I don't think I can put into words how grateful we are to Rob.

When our wedding coordinator became ill and could no longer fulfill her duties, Rob called in a favor and found someone in his network with three days to go.

There wasn't a single photo we didn't like and he sent us 1,000+ photos. Thank you, Rob!

I found Rob when searching for a professional photographer online to capture our engagement. After viewing his work I immediately knew that I wanted him to do our photos. When scoping out spots for the surprise engagement photos, Rob Facetimed with me to help choose the best... Read More spots to propose. He patiently explained why certain spots that I initially suggested would not be good spots to propose because of the bad light and offered many alternative options. During the actual engagement shoot, he was very professional and directed my fiancee and me through many different spots and poses. When our families arrived (10+ people) he would stand in the sun and patiently shoot all of our photos while we enjoyed the shade. It was almost 90 degrees out! An expensive camera and lens can only go so far. Rob not only is a skilled and experienced photographer, but he brings a lot of positive energy. His humorous character evokes a lot of great photos and genuine laughs from his subjects. It's not the arrow, it's the indian. We could not be more pleased with the delivered results. The photos are beautiful and we are excited to print these out and hang them on our walls. Once we formalize our wedding plans, we'll be seeking Rob again for our wedding photos as well.

My groom and are I are blown away by the quality of Rob's work for our engagement session as well as our wedding in June 2016. // RESPONSIVENESS and ORGANIZATION // Rob constantly will email me back within an hour with a very detailed response. Sometimes he will even just call... Read More me back if his answers require a lot of time and detail. In addition, he is incredibly methodical and organized leading to a very successful wedding day. He is very timely and keeps you running on schedule. I showed him several versions of our wedding day timeline to ensure it made sense from a photographer standpoint. Although most couples hire a coordinator, you have to remember the entire morning is usually sans coordinator as they are setting up your venue. That is why its so crucial to have an organized photographer who keeps things on schedule so you do not start your wedding day behind already. // QUALITY // Rob has such an eye for photographs and really finds light even when there is none. I am really glad he suggested to do a couple shoot during our wedding day because he gave us a sneak peak of our photos and they are amazing! He did our engagement shoot and also our wedding and our photos are stunning. // PERSONALITY // You spend as much time with your photographer as you do your bride/groom so remember to find one you can be at ease with and get along with. Our big Asian family loved Rob and his patience in corralling all of them into place during big family photos. We had a great time with him as well during our couple session between our first look and our ceremony and our photos definitely show how relaxed we are. Rob can be very particular about certain things during the wedding planning process, but it is only to ensure excellent photos which after your wedding, is what you will treasure most! Rob's photos are classic and timeless. The quality is unbeatable!

It was around one year before our wedding that I was actually looking for photographer for other needs, but when I came across Rob's portfolio website, I was immediately intrigued and sent the link to my wife saying "This is the photographer we need for our wedding!!", and that... Read More was exactly what we did. As Photographer, Rob is talented, experienced, fun, engaging, and always given the right advice or joke to bring the best sides out of you. With him in helm at your photoshoot, there was no worry whatsoever. As Professional, Rob is detailed oriented, providing lots of pre-shoot planning advices and follow up to make sure everything during the wedding day will go smoothly and swiftly. Honest and direct, Rob is firm, but flexible at the same time. He demands certain requirements, but all will prove as the better options for the best result, but if you do have difficulty or certain requirement, he will work with you on the best possible solution without compromise the quality of the shoot. The PHOTOS!! Rob’s work is clean, natural, but timeless. His composition is simple at first glance, but magically attractive. The focus will always on you and only the necessary elements needed at the time to create the perfect sentimental moment with intriguing elegance. Of course, bases on your shoot locations, he definitely able to capture grand and majestic shots of you immerse with the amazing landscape. My wife and I are UX/UI and industrial designers, therefore nitpicking on all details in any storytelling medium is like the second nature for us, and we ARE picky, and when we inexpertly came across Rob’s work, it was like love in the first sight. Then, after we met him at his amazingly and beautifully curated home/studio for the first time, there was no second guessing or need to search elsewhere. From his award winning landscape yard, tasteful interior decoration, the way he showcases his works throughout the meeting by both traditional and digital medium, the detail explanation of how things were done in the past and how will he perform our shoot bases on the locations we are considering to have the wedding at. You can tell Rob is experienced, passionate, and serious about his work and who he chooses to work with. My wife and I were even more impress with his poise, confidence, and humor. We believe that we found the one who is not only able to take great photos, but also able to direct and in control at all time no matter what might happen during the wedding day. At the day of wedding, Rob was fun, engaging, and in charge of all time. Our groomsmen and bride’s maids are not so photogenic, but Rob was able to find ways to bring out the best sides of them. Jokes and laughs where throughout the shoot, which make the long photography session pleasant and swift at best. All our wedding party and family members love Rob!! The photos were deliver in about 3 weeks after the wedding, which are AMAZING!! There was not much re-touching work, and actually those are not needed at all. There are awesome shots that Rob curated, but there were also many shots of unexpected yet priceless emotion been captured even without our awareness. Pick Rob as your wedding photographer, stunning photos you will get is a sure thing, but the great shooting experience he will bring is truly incredible and wonderful!!

This review is long in the making, but is very necessary. My wife and I were married in April. Leading up to our wedding, my wife and I had to make many important decisions, and I can say without reservation that choosing Rob Greer as our wedding photographer was one of the best... Read More decisions we could have possibly made. Rob was hands-down our best vendor. He brought with him a sense of professionalism and an understanding for how a wedding should look and feel, qualities that surfaced very early in the process when he made insightful recommendations regarding our venue, table arrangements, and getaway car. And you don't have to take my word for it - just look the wedding planning tips on his website (http://www.robgreer.com/articles/planning-wedding/). Furthermore, on the day of our wedding, Rob continued to impress. He kept the bridal party on schedule while taking AMAZING photographs. He understands that you don't just want pictures, you want captured moments. He would always position my wife, the bridal party, and I just right so as to capture our best sides. And he's funny too. Every single member of our bridal party raved about how awesome Rob was and about how fun it was to take photos with him. Also, for anyone planning to employ both a videographer and photographer on your wedding day, it's important that you understand the pros and cons of each (which Rob laid out to us during a call). Great video often comes at the cost of great photos as the videographers take the prime position for the first kiss, the walk down the isle, etc., meaning that your photographer is not able to capture photos from said prime position. Deciding which is most important to you (photo/video) is key - for us it was photos, which we articulated to both Rob and our videographer. With that directive in hand, Rob worked with our videographer to ensure that he captured the best photographs while ensuring quality video as well. I've heard horror stories of videographers and photographers bickering over position during the actual wedding and subsequently both producing poor quality products, so Rob's ability to control the situation in a zero stress manner helped keep the focus on what mattered - our wedding. Should my wife and I plan another special event requiring a photographer in the future, Rob will definitely be the first person we call. With Rob you get what you pay for - quality and professionalism of the highest degree.

If you want a great wedding photographer, go with Rob. In my view, it's that simple. He has mastered the "standard" wedding photographs (and you do want those), but he will also deliver those signature "Rob Greer" images that capture everything you're hoping for in a wedding.... Read More He photographed ours several weeks ago and I can definitively state that we could not be happier with both the day and with the results. The lighting (4 pm outdoors) was very tough, but Rob had the technical chops to make that a non-issue. He was sufficiently "take charge" to push through the mandatory scores of "group" photos ("Let's have Mom with the Bride...now add in Dad...") that had to be done on a tight time line, but he did it with such a light touch and good humor that he was able to capture authentic smiles from everyone. In our "bride and groom" location shots, he composed beautiful images that will stay with us forever. He's great at the "set shots", and he's also great a capturing those great moments -- not just in the raw photography, but also in the editing. He's a consummate professional, and a great guy as well. The photographer ends up being a very significant participant in this important day, so you want someone who has Rob's type of personality. He's very friendly and open, but without being overly familiar or intrusive. He listens, but he also directs -- reading the mood and context as to which approach would be most appropriate and helpful in the moment. I have written very FEW online reviews, but we just had to write one for Rob -- he earned it!
