My partner and I recently had our wedding in Chicago (October 2016). After much research, we decided to work with Robert. Let’s just say, we have absolutely no regrets. He has done an amazing job capturing exactly what we asked for (a nice balance of formal family/wedding party shots with a lot of fun candid shots throughout the evening). From the moment I first spoke to Robert on the phone, to our first meeting, and then to the actual wedding day, we both felt Robert was attentive, focused, detailed, and helped make things incredibly seamless. We received the initial snapshot of photos in an App less than a week after the wedding which was great to see an idea of what we have to look forward to. We were blown away with the style, brightness of all the colors, and amazing candid shots we love so much. Can’t wait for the full photo deck in a couple weeks. Overall, we highly recommend Robert for your wedding or event. We feel strongly you will not be disappointed by the quality and professionalism. He has done a great job capturing our story from beginning to end.
Can there be a 6th, 7th, heck 10th star! Robert was not just affordable, great to work with but absolutely the best decision we made in terms of photographer. I can truly see why he has been voted best of the best for Knot! I would have paid twice the amount we did for his services because flat out he is worth it. From being the utmost professional to just an overall delight to work with, he's the best and there is no doubt about it. We had our preview app the day after we got back from our honeymoon and 8 days after our wedding. That is amazing if you do not know how long it takes to put something like that together. Absolutely amazing! I would recommend Robert to anyone and I mean anyone who wants to look like a king and queen in their wedding photos for a great price. Book him and you will see why he is the best! Robert, you are not only the man, but you make me happy to know that these photos were taken by a person I truly feel is apart of my life forever! Cheers to you Robert! Cheers!
Robert was AMAZING!!! He showed up right on time and was accommodating to everything we wanted to do with our photos. He took the time to take pictures of most of our guests as couples and almost all of them are ordering their pictures to hang on their walls at home! Our wedding was captured beautifully thanks to Robert! Also, he took our engagement photos as well and I think I'm completely hooked! I'll be using Robert as my professional photographer from now on! Thank you Robert, you have no idea how much we appreciate what you did for us. I could never have imagined that our wedding would be captured so beautifully on film!
Robert was our wedding photographer just a few days ago and we received so many compliments about him from all our family and friends. We were on a tight timeline with kids who needed naps and limited daylight with daylight savings time and he was amazing juggling all of it. I mentioned I wanted unique pictures and he totally worked with our very high energy group to make it work. I cannot wait to see the pictures but having seen a few on his camera already, I know they're going to be amazing. He was professional, prompt, efficient, and talents. Totally recommend!
We are so grateful we chose Robert to capture our wedding day! We have a large, loud, and unruly family and Robert did a fantastic job managing my entire family. I think the big family photo he took is the first photo we have where everyone is smiling, looking at the camera and looking good! Thanks Robert, we still cannot believe you pulled that off. Robert is stylish and classy and these traits flow into his photography. He was communicative and knowledgeable throughout the process. The day of my wedding he was pleasant and easy going. We already received our preview (less than a week form the wedding date!!). My husband and I downloaded the app and we can share and view our photo preview super easy. Thanks Robert for capturing such beautiful moments and for putting up with my wild and crazy family, you are the best!
Booking Robert was probably the best decision we made and the simplest. Robert came highly recommended and I stood up in a wedding he photographed. I was sold after he put up with our group and went along with our crazy ideas to act like we were running from a T-Rex. When we viewed our friends that got married photos, they were pretty amazing. We pretty much called it right there and booked Robert with-in the week. We did all of this from out of state, Robert sent us quotes, signed contract online and we were booked! This guy is super attention to details and missed nothing. Every photo we mentioned wanting he got and so many more. We could not be happier. My wife looked amazing that day and we are not what I would call photogenic people. Oh, and the photo app is a great thing to have. That is also what sold us when booking. He a tech guy with talent. Thanks Robert!
This is the first review I've ever written and there are many reasons Robert is the reason I'm finally writing one. I grew up in a house filled with photos of important moments in our family; so more than the fleeting parts of a wedding(the cake, decorations...the material things) something that meant a great deal to my husband and I was the photos. I cannot say enough about how thrilled we are with Robert and the photos he took. The memories he captured are the kinds of things you can't put a price on (let's say this you are more than getting your money's worth with him). He's extremely talented and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Couldn't recommend him any more highly, if he's an option for your wedding BOOK HIM.
Robert did an amazing job shooting our wedding. He captured every shot I requested and hundreds more that I didn't even know I wanted. He was patient and understanding throughout the entire day and his demeanor really helped my bridal and myself relax on what could have been a super stressful day. Our wedding was 8/27/2016, and by 9/1/2016, he had a 40 picture preview ready on his app. My family could not believe how quickly we received some of our photos, and they could not stop talking about how beautiful they were. If you're looking for a photographer who loves what he does, and who's professionalism is second to none, Robert is the man for the job. Robert - Kenny and I could not be happier with our pictures. You truly did an outstanding job capturing every moment of our special day. We can’t thank you enough!
Thanks Robert for all your hard work. Well worth the 5 stars. Photos looked great and the photo app was very cool.
Robert did an amazing job. He's a great guy and very passionate about his work. His prices are very reasonable. He gives you a couple forms to fill out ahead of time so he knows all the photos you want to take. He captured all the moments and typical wedding shots that we wanted and then some. He was very responsive throughout the whole process and let us know when we were getting close to his end time and asked if we'd like him to stay longer. Having beautiful photos was one of the most important things to me and we are so happy with the results. I HIGHLY recommend RRG!!
We are still receiving compliments on how awesome the photos are. We also have this photo app that is super cool and Robert put all the photos on Shutterfly, and dropbox plus a preview to facebook. Point is, super easy, photos are accessable all over the place and easy for everyone to download print or what ever they want. Rob made it easy from the start to the end. Wedding albums are top notch and pricey, but worth it. What I really liked that he was cool with our ideas. We had so much fun that it didn't seem like work to get through the photos. The limo overheated with the nearly 90 degree weather and my wife was freaking out that we wouldn't get to go and take photos around the city. Rob was like "i have some ideas, we'll be ok". And the photos came out better then expected. Any way Rob is great, hire him, you'll like him.
We live out of state and went with a recommendation from a friend that used RRG Weddings a few years back. We were kind of nervous with the idea of booking vendors from out of town. We spoke with Robert on the phone and he was super helpful making everything clear. We were pretty confident he was the right choice, but we still wanted him to meet with our local Chicago Friend. Robert didn't mind at all, meeting went well and the rest is history :) We actually came into town a few months prior and Robert agree to meet with us again, this time face to face. Nothing but a professional putting our mind at ease. Day of couldn't have gone any better. Robert was lots of fun, funny and fit right in with our crazy wedding party and family. Rob came up with so many ideas way beyond what I would have expected or thought. And he took all these candid photos that I didn't even know he got. After looking at all the photos, you really get a sense for the entire day start to finish. So happy. Would do it again and again and recommend him to just about anyone. Thanks Rob!!!!
Thank you to Robert and his team. They were so fun to have at the wedding. We are constantly getting complements from family and friends on their professionalism. This was before we even saw the photos. Blew us away. We loved them all. Robert really captured what it was like to be at the event. Creative photos, candids, formals, he did it all. I would do it over again. If you're thinking about booking him, DO IT! :) No really, from the start of the process to the end, we always felt supported with access to Robert via text, email and phone. Can't fathom hiring another photographer at this point. Can't say enough. Thank you again. Looking forward to receiving the album.
Our engagement session with Robert was nothing short of perfect. He was extremely accommodating, he was professional and he was very skilled. He made an extra effort to understand our vision and even scouted locations prior to our session to make sure that we were on the same page. He was super communicative and knowledgeable of his craft. He was an absolute joy to work with and we would highly recommend him!!
We highly recommend Robert!!! We were so happy with his work!!! He totally captured our vision. He was professional and so nice. He was so affordable!! Everytime we had a picture to take or an idea, he was there to capture the moment. We are so happy with our preview so far and can't wait for the rest of our pics!!! Thanks Robert!!
Thanks RRG Weddings for making taking photos on our wedding easy and fun. Would recommend them to any couple who love candids and creative photos.
I got extremely frustrated with this company. The main person is great but they changed our photographer several times and left us clueless the day of. Who we got was very inexperienced and limited our photos as well as didn't fully listen/ follow the desired/undesired photos for the day. We took most of our photos in only 2 places and when we told her we wanted to do more fun photos she was left clueless as to what we could do, so we all had to struggle on the spot. I asked her for ideas and she just said she didn't know. Hopefully the photos turn out great since we all bared through and tried to be creative but I wasn't the most pleased
Couldn't have asked for more from Robert and his team. He was easy to work with leading up to the wedding, the day of and afterwards as well. The photos we've received are fantastic and everyone can't get enough of them. He certainly exceeded our expectations and my wife and I highly recommend him.
With high regard, I recommend Robert and his company for your special day. He arrived promptly with great energy. He made me feel joyful and well taken care ! He also was lovely to my family and friends... It was an honor and a pleasure to have him take photographs for my wedding day and I couldn't think of a better duo for your event. Thanks again, Robert!
If you get a photographer for your wedding you may as well get the best, and at a very reasonable price I might add. Robert shot out wedding and it was an absolutely awesome experience. We only had a rough idea of what pictures we wanted but Robert was masterful at finding the right locations and poses for us. He was so easy and fun to work with. When we got our pictures back our minds were just blown from how beautiful they turned out. Thank you so much Robert for the awesome experience!!!!
Great Photographer!Reviewed on 11/11/2015 Megan D
My husband and I used Robert for both our engagement photos and our wedding. We loved him! He totally went with the flow and let us be us, while documenting our special day. He was very accommodating and we love the pictures he took. He was very prompt and we received our wedding preview just days after the wedding, and all of our wedding photos within a few weeks of the wedding!
Robert photographed our wedding in June of 2015. He made it so easy to enjoy the day and captured every special moment. He went above and beyond to make our experience stress-free by keeping lines of communication open, making himself available and quickly responding to our questions. Our guests really enjoyed him and he captured so many great photos of our friends and family. We would definitely work with Robert again and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great photographer.
Professional Photo-Journalistic QualityReviewed on 10/14/2015 Allison T
We highly recommend RRG Wedding Photography! Robert was our photographer for our 1-hour engagement photo session and 10-hour wedding day session. He is very talented and we are so pleased with our photos. The app for viewing photos and his portfolio are the initial reason we booked RRG. The turnaround time to produce previews and all edited photos is much faster than expected. Robert was not only very professional but also thoughtful and flexible. I planned to have photos taken at Buckingham Fountain, but Robert alerted me 2 days before the wedding that the water had been turned off! He suggested some alternate locations and we made a new plan with no problems. I feel really lucky that we got such a good deal with RRG Wedding Photography and amazing photos.
I highly recommend RRG Wedding Photography! Robert was absolutely amazing to work with. We told him we wanted to try some different locations for pictures and he came up with several options that worked out perfectly. He was able to capture so many moments throughout the day and was sure to get all the group shots that were important to us. He was also attentive to our needs. For instance, he was mindful of all the minor and major details, such as not making me walk through wet grass in my dress prior to the ceremony. He and his team had creative ideas of their own but listened to our input. He was organized, prepared, and helped make our day run smoothly. Even after the wedding he was attentive to our needs, and spent several hours with us helping create our photo album. He is not only an excellent photographer but easy to work with! Our friends and family cannot stop raving about his pictures!
Things didn’t go as planed on our wedding day. And what was cool about Robert…he just went with it. Limo doesn’t show, he came up with a spot to take photos near the house that ended up working out great! Ceremony started 30 mins late so we couldn’t do formals at the church, Robert got it done at the reception. And of course we were running late there too, he was happy to stay late, charged us for it, but it was all worth every cent. Thanks again Robert. Many compliments from fam about your patients and ability to “get it done”. Couldn’t have picked a better man for the job.
