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.

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.
Member Since: 1/1/2013
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. :)

Rob is so much more than a photographer. He gave us advice on all things wedding related. After our initial meeting with him we were so pumped and excited for our wedding day and our photographs! He was always very upfront and honest, and gave us the best advice for a smooth wedding and for great photos. He really connected with us and brought out the best in us. I absolutely recommend Rob!

If you are looking for EPIC photos of your wedding, Rob is the photographer for you. His photos are pure art. They are full of drama, sweeping scenes, and really capture the emotion of the day.
We get comments like this from our friends all the time:
"I wish I had your wedding photos."
"Your wedding photos made me cry."
"I can't believe how gorgeous your wedding photos are."
All the credit goes to Rob.
Rob had to work with challenging photo rules at both our church and the reception venue, and worked tirelessly throughout the day to capture all of the shots that we wanted—and more importantly to get the shots that we never knew we wanted, but love more than any of the others.
Rob's expertise goes well beyond just the camera. He knew how to work quickly at our reception venue and how to get the most out of our time—in our case, providing some heavy tips to the valets driving the golf carts.
So, if you want photos that speak to the way you want to remember your day, that capture the magic, and create the types of memories that you will always cherish, trust your wedding photos to Rob.
He is a true professional, creates amazing works of art, and captured our day perfectly. He will do the same for you. We count him among our many blessings on our wedding day, and are more in awe of his work with each passing day.

Rob photographed our wedding and we are extremely pleased. He is a great guy to work with and he takes excellent photos. During the wedding planning part, Rob gave recommendations about things to consider for our venue so that the quality of the photos would not be compromised (our ceremony location was partial shade, partial sun which we didn’t know could affect photos). No other photographer that we considered said anything. Another challenge with our wedding was that my parents don’t speak English very well but Rob easily handled this with humor and excellent coordination and made the process easy and enjoyable for everyone. Similarly, part of our photo package was a DVD with all of the images in various sizes as well as a file sized perfectly for emailing photos and this was great for us since we have a lot of family living abroad that missed the wedding.

The two best decisions that I have made in my entire life are 1) picking and marrying my husband, and 2) selecting Rob Greer to photograph our wedding. Hands down, Rob is the best man for the job for a multitude of reasons (he is excellent at what he does, professional, organized, and extremely experienced) but above all, he takes AWESOME photos and will get them to you (final products) in a very reasonable time-frame; significantly sooner than I have heard from other brides that used other photographers. Additionally, Rob is one wedding vendor that you will not have to worry or stress about on your Big Day; he is punctual, dresses professionally/blends in with guests, and gets the job done while upholding the highest standard. I few planning/organizational things that I particularly liked about working with Rob were that he was very upfront with information regarding the photo packages he offers (they are all listed on his website, you don’t have to dig or make contact first, no awkward bartering), he was extremely clear about the deliverables and scope of work that he would perform, and his contract is thorough (giving the client peace of mind that he experienced and there are no ambiguities about what to expect from his services). All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend Rob Greer Photography for your wedding day as I know you will be as pleased with the process AND results as my husband and I have. Do yourself a favor and hire someone that will capture the memory of your day in photos that you will be proud to share and fondly look at for many, many years: that someone is Rob Greer.

As they say, hindsight is 20/20, well it's been 5 years since my wedding and I can't say enough great things about Rob. When I was looking for a photographer I wanted someone with a photojournalistic style and able to make average looking people look stunning. I got my wish. I'm not the type that likes having my pictures taken and was a little skeptical about the engagement shoot. When the photos were given to us, we were so happy with the results that we used these photos as placement cards for the wedding. How can you not share such fabulous shots? It made us really excited about what our wedding photos were going to be like.
My memories of my wedding was captured beautifully and succinctly by Rob. He truly raises the bar in wedding photography. He is detailed oriented, captures the best emotional moments, and cares about the pictures that he takes. He is an artist in his craft and I highly recommend him for your wedding.

Rob gave us first class service! He is an exceptional photographer who puts all those around him at ease. He has a knack for capturing moments that you will cherish for the rest of your life!
We had a unique engagement session that meant a lot to my wife and I. We had such an amazing day with him and got photos that no one else will ever have the pleasure of getting.
On our wedding day, he arrived early and found the best spots to shoot our pictures. Their are pictures and moments from that day that brought tears to our eyes when we saw them on film! He truly is a master at his craft!
