Rob is the best of the best. My wedding was this past Saturday and people are still messaging me telling me how much they enjoyed him being there with us and asking for his information. Rob will somehow make you feel like you're the most beautiful bride and groom on the planet... Read More and also his best friends. He makes you feel calm and at ease during what could be a little awkward or "rushed" - I honestly can go on for hours about how much we loved having Rob shoot our wedding. My parents and siblings and bridal party agree, he was easily, hands down, one of the best parts of our reception, joining in on the fun and making everyone feel important and special and he has the brightest smile ever. Book him RIGHT THIS SECOND, he is all of this AND crazy talented - you will not for ONE second regret it.

Rob Wilkinson is an artist that paints with his camera. Lots of photographers can capture a photo of the beautiful bride. Rob will capture the best damn Bride photo you have ever seen. Rob will get the sparkle in the eye, the mischievous smile and the perfect setting all at... Read More the same time and he can do it every time with everyone in the photo. Of course it’s magic that’s what he does – Rob might be hanging out the window of the car taking a photo of the Maid of Honor’s reflection in the mirror or he could be laying on his back on the ground, making sure the lighting is perfect as it shines on the Mother of the Bride’s lone teardrop slowly sliding down her cheek. You will get shots that no one else has – because Rob is the only one that sees the potential and is professional enough to carry it through.
