Rogier was amazing! We were in from out of town and he gave us some great ideas on where to go. He was able to send us our engagement photos the same day we took them! Great attitude and a very fun person. We definitely recommend him!

Rogier is absolutely amazing. We were a bit unique and had him take photos for our engagement in Acadia National Park. Not only did he capture the moment, we did an engagement photo shoot afterwards for an additional hour. He kept us in touch the entire process, even drove out the day before to the spot to make sure he wouldnt miss sunrise at the park. A true professional who's talents radiated from the shoot. He even went over almost an hour to make sure we got all the best parts of the park at sunrise. The quality of the images were absolutely stunning; I am a photographer myself and the work he did with the lighting that we had, was unbelievable. I still do not know how he did what he did with that camera. Finally, we were fortunate that he took time out of his morning and edited the photos that day. We can't say enough about Rogier and his work and would highly recommend Eager Eye photography; they are well worth the cost!
