In my previous professional life, I used my child development PhD to run preschool education programs, which focused on helping at-risk preschoolers become ready for kindergarten. Through this work, I began photographing the many moments that occurred between the adults and young children working together. The parents, teachers, and students who were involved with my programs really responded to the stories that were being told through my photographs. Soon, I had people asking if I could take family photos, senior photos, event photos.
Those experiences really influenced how I approach my work as a lifestyle, portrait and event photographer. My approach emphasizes connecting with the people that I am photographing, and my style focuses on capturing visual narratives, candid moments, and the personalities of the people in my images. I enjoy taking pictures that capture emotion, connection, and relationships - creating dynamic images that tell a story.

Robert was exceptional. His photos of our wedding were professional, while also successfully "capturing the moment". He met with us multiple times before our wedding to discuss the plan, meeting any request we had. Throughout the entire time Robert was courteous, patient, and very hard working. In the end we were both so happy that he was part of our wedding both for the photographs, and to share that moment in our lives with him. Thanks Rob!
Rob is an incredible photographer, and just as a great a person (to work with but also in general!). I first met Rob while working for one of his preschool education programs, and after seeing the incredible moments he was able to capture between teachers and students, asking him to take my engagement and wedding photographs was a no-brainer. Rob has an incredible ability to capture the perfect moment. Whether I'm looking at the pictures he took of me with preschoolers, or the ones with my husband, his attention to detail, emotions and expressions makes it easy to relive the moment the picture was taken. We met multiple times before the wedding itself to talk about what we wanted, and he was able to do exactly what we were hoping for. My husband and I didn't want to be overly posed, and he did a great job making sure we got photos that would look good, but that didn't feel (and now don't look) posed. At the wedding itself, he scoped out the location for the perfect spots to take pictures from, and even asked if he could have access to a small balcony to take some pictures from up above (which turned out to be some of our favorites!). He helped us plan out our first look, and then also encouraged us to be silly. After the event, we got some previews of pictures within days (what a nice surprise!) and then he was also very timely with the rest of the pictures. I could go on and on, but overall my experience working with Rob has always been great. He is very professional, but also personable in a way that allows you to be comfortable in front of the camera. I would highly recommend him as a photographer for any event, and can't wait to use him again myself for family photos!
Rob was our wedding photographer. He did a wonderful job with our wedding photos. He also met with me and my husband prior to the wedding date to discuss wedding photos. The wedding pictures turned out great! Rob was very professional and also very prompt to replying emails and keeping in touch. We had a great experience working with him! Rob pays attention to details. He arrived early on the wedding day to check out the place. He brought his assistant/brother to help out and both of them were a pleasure to work with. Overall we had a great experience working with Rob, and we highly recommend him as your photographer.
I can't speak highly enough about Rob as both a person and photographer. He photographed my wedding to my wife Rachel as well as took our engagement photos. We love what he was able to capture, and our friends and family have gushed as well. He really knows how to highlight personalities, playfulness, and emotion in his photos. Rob took the time to meet with us and discuss what we were hoping for in our engagement photoshoot as well as the wedding ceremony. For the engagement shoot, he was able to highlight our playfulness while creating beautifully colorful lighting for our fall scenery at the UW Arboretum. Posing for professional photos is not something we do very often, but he made us feel immediately at ease and got us laughing. That joy came through in his photos of us. For the wedding, Rob truly went above and beyond. He was generous with his time, arriving early to capture some beautiful candids, and staying after to take both playful and traditional family and wedding party portraits. What most impressed me about Rob's work during the ceremony was how he blended into the event so seamlessly. He took dozens and dozens of beautiful candids and event photographs without obstructing anyone's view or becoming noticeable within the proceedings. Again, I cannot say enough about how well Rob's photos capture the emotions of the people in them. Our personalities really came through in his work as well as our ever-changing sentiment throughout the wedding ceremony. I will cherish these photographic memories forever. Thank you, Rob!
