Rogier is wonderful to work with! He worked with my boyfriend to plan a surprise proposal and offered ideas where to capture the moment. He was so quick to edit the photos because he knew we would want to announce the big news. The photos turned out so well!Sent on 08/15/2019

Cadillac Mountain Engagement
Choosing Eager Eye Photography was the best decision I could have made for our engagement! My (now) fiancé and I were traveling to Acadia National Park for the first time and Rogier was able to tell me about great locations in the park, offer recommendations, and even remain flexible with scheduling around weather changes. Most importantly though, the photographs he produced were wonderful and I can't recommend his work enough!Sent on 06/11/2019
