I simply can't say enough about Robert as our wedding photographer. He was very easy to work with, amenable to our every request, and brilliant at capturing each moment. On the day of the wedding I hardly knew he was there, yet, when spotting a moment on the dance floor or in a speech, he was already snapping the photo.
I am FLOORED by our pictures. I have absolutely no idea how one man was in so many places at once. Our ceremony coverage looks like it was covered from 3 different angles and I can't recall ever even seeing him during it. His biggest strength is in capturing the candids. Although we absolutely loved our posed photos, the pictures of people caught in beautiful moments of laughter, hugs, dancing, and goofiness are where he really shines. His photos become a flip book of your event. You feel like you are truly reliving the feeling of each of them.
His hard work was evident when we saw him at the end of the night. He was soaked through his clothes with sweat and still beaming from ear to ear telling us what a wonderful time he had. That's just a quality of service that money can't buy. We are so grateful to have found him for our most special day. I can't imagine anyone else going to such lengths for complete strangers.
From the first night we met Robert my husband & I automatically made the decision to use Robert as our wedding photographer, in fact we hired him on the spot before even interviewing any other photographers. We were immediately drawn in by his enthusiasm, passion, and professionalism. It was clear from the beginning just how much Rob loves what he does, it was obvious after seeing his portfolio and even more so after meeting with him and hearing him talk about his experiences as a wedding photographer. Rob was super easy to work with, he went out of his way from day one to visit our venue on several different occasions to really get a feel for it prior to the wedding. He even attended our rehearsal all the way in NJ the night before the wedding, just to ensure that everything would be perfect the day of. And that it truly was...not only did Rob manage to capture all the magical moments of our amazing night, but he did it effortlessly and unintrusively. He made sure we got to spend a couple of minutes at our cocktail hour instead of taking pictures the entire time, and still managed to capture beautiful portraits in less than an hour! He also had our pics ready in less than 2 months from our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the end result. We wholeheartedly recommend Rob for any event & had so much fun having him shoot our wedding!!!!!
I had an instant gut feeling about Robert when I looked at his site and saw the kind of work he did - very cool and natural, nothing too cheesy, just good photography in a classic, timeless style. He was very easy to talk with and discuss the wedding & very responsive always. On the actual day he was every part there when he needed to be, gave good direction when needed, and left the right moments alone. He was a welcome addition to the best day of my life (so far!) He even sent me some pictures ahead of time as my Father's birthday was soon after our wedding and I wanted to frame a picture for him for it. Professional and friendly - a great photographer and human all around (and with great turnaround!)
My husband and I had Robert take photos for both our Save the Date and our wedding. My husband was a little nervous, he did not think being followed around with a camera would be fun however, after our save the date pictures, he told me that it felt more like hanging out with a friend than staged photos. Everything just felt so natural with Robert. On our wedding day, guests commented on how professional and thorough he was. I have already recommended Robert to my friends who are now planning weddings. We love our wedding pictures SO much. Robert also has a unique style with his photography which we love, it makes our photos stand out. We hope to work with Robert in the future to capture other special events in our life.
After researching numerous photographers (too many to count), we finally found Robert and I'm so glad we did! From day 1 we had such a great experience working with him. We were able to meet with him prior to booking and he immediately put us at ease - he was open to all of our thoughts of what we were looking for, he was very genuine and up front about his work, and most importantly he was someone we both felt comfortable hanging out with. He was always very easy to get in touch with and quick to respond. The day of the wedding Robert and his 2nd shooter, Jen, were so attentive, professional, unobtrusive... and fun! We had such a great time working with both of them throughout the day and it shows in our photos. Robert has a great eye and was able to find beautiful, unique back drops for our portraits and he caught all of the natural moments of us and our guests. We received the edited photos back very quick considering the time and effort and that is put into post production. Overall, it was such an easy, collaborative, and fun process. Robert and Jen captured our day beautifully and for that we are so thankful.
Robert was extremely reachable, ultimate professional, and just an awesome person. Oh, and the photos, absolutely stunning! If you want the best, you've found the right photographer.
Robert was an absolute joy to work with. From the moment we contacted him he was easy going and accommodating. His passion for his craft is inspiring and he executes it with professionalism and perfection. His value is beyond his rate, the photos will speak for themselves. Our photos are art and went beyond a pretty backdrop and pose, with Robert behind the lense you can be sure these photos will evoke emotion. He is like a photography ninja capturing all the unnoticed details and moments of the day without ever getting in the way. When we received the photos we were so over joyed by the moments we missed. Robert also listened carefully to what we wanted like pictures of our beautiful son. He is open to all suggestions. Overall we are so happy we hired robert and without hesitation would recommend his services to everyone looking for an exceptional photographer.
Robert was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. He was organized, professional, timely and super easy to work with. Robert captured every single smile, laugh, dance and much more so beautifully. He blended into the occasion and at times I barely knew he was even there! His photos are unique and stunning and beyond that, he has an awesome personality that meshed perfectly with ours. I would recommend Robert in a heartbeat!
We were so happy with the work Robert did with us at our wedding this past weekend. Since we are only a couple days removed, we haven't seen the full results yet. However, from the couple shots Robert couldn't resist showing us on his camera, we are so very excited to see what he came up with.
Robert's calm and enthusiastic demeanor was exactly what we needed to feel great about our day. We felt like we were in great hands all day and had a terrific time shooting with him as well. He went out of his way to make sure we got the shots we wanted, and several we had no idea we wanted - but are so glad we didn't miss the opportunity.
Robert also worked incredibly efficiently. We got through the formal family shots quickly which gave us extra time to explore the grounds and find more incredible shots. He was also very inconspicuous though out the ceremony and reception. Neither one of us were aware of him at all during the ceremony - although we have no doubt that we'll be well covered once we get to see the images. We were also thrilled to learn that Robert had experience shooting dance. He did not shy away from shooting movement, and as a result captured some really amazing moments.
Obviously, we highly recommend Robert if you're looking for a photo-journalistic style. He will shoot you interacting as a couple and let your personalities and energies drive the shoot. What better way to capture who you really are?
There is not enough stars to give this guy. Robert Carlo covered our wedding from start to end. He became our support team. He is extremely professional and has a passion for photography. He gave us so much more then we asked for both in time, number of photos and kindness. His pictures are unique and capture the moments' emotions. His portfolio speaks for itself, but I have to add that the photos are fantastic. We love our wedding pictures. We couldn't be happier with Rob. Thank you for your great work and passion for photography.

I really tried to think of one thing that Robert Carlo could have improved on and I couldn't think of 1 thing. I am thankful that he was willing to travel to Los Angeles to grab our special day. We loved his wedding photos and completely filled when we saw his landscaping portraits. You pick a venue because you love it. He managed to capture us and the venue equally in the same shot. We are more than pleased with his professionalism and quality. There were moments he captured that I didn't think he was even around for, completely amazed!
Robert is creative and effective, instructive without being intrusive... everything you want in an event photographer. He was referred to me by the officiant who was performing our elopement ceremony and was extremely helpful in throwing together a ceremony for two in less than ten days! Our photos are fantastic! We look happy and relaxed - you can actually see how we were feeling! Couldn't ask for more!
Robert was our photographer for our wedding in May. He was very chill and laid back which is exactly what we were looking for, and on top of that was a very personable guy. We didn't want a slew of "traditional" (ie boring) photographs but knew there were a handful of shots we would have to get, and he was able to do both for us, the fun, photo journalistic kind, and a couple family posed ones. We also didn't want to waste hours on our photos that we could be spending with our family and friends so he was able to take some time efficient shots that turned out really well. His prices are reasonable and the second photographer he brought was also great. I would definitely recommend Robert for your wedding.
My husband and i were truly blessed to have Robert as our lead photographer. His raw talent and true innovative skill was seen in every shot. Even the rain couldnt damper our day with Robert behind the lens! Thank you once again Robert!!
Our guests and we were absolutely impressed with the work of Robert Carlo. We already had high expectations after seeing his portfolio online and he delivered pictures of the same caliber. It was particularly pleasing that during our wedding day several of our guests came to us to ask how we had found our photographer, since he appeared to be passionate and serious about his work. It made everyone feel good. In addition, he was clear about the whole process from the beginning and he accommodated last minute changes to our plans due to weather and traffic. He creatively took advantage of these unplanned situations and came up with pictures that captured some of the best moments of our guests and us on our wedding day.
Robert is easy-going, patient, and full of passion in photography. We all love to work with him. I’m really lucky to find him before our wedding ceremony. He helped us to capture the beautiful moments. I’m not an native English speaker, so I especially appreciate that Robert always pays attention and listen to me. And of course, he always respects our requests. I like his works, we share the same taste on the beauty pictures. The result is way beyond what I imagined. I won’t ever forget these beautiful memories, thanks to Robert! :)
