Rogier is great to work with!
I would highly recommend Rogier & Eager Eye for your Wedding or Engagement photography! Rogier is super responsive and flexible. I used him to take my Proposal pictures in Bar Harbor, ME when I proposed to my fiance. He was super helpful as someone who knows the area and very professional. He made the process easy and less stressful on me, since I had other things to worry about! Ultimately, he produced the pictures that same day to us and they came out excellent! If you are looking for someone to take amazing Wedding, Proposal, or Engagement pictures, give Rogier a call!Sent on 11/11/2020

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

We recently did an engagement shoot with Rogier and it was absolutely amazing! We got the photos back very quickly and are over the moon about them. He takes amazing pictures and the best part was how easy it was! He coached us through the whole shoot, giving recommendations and making the whole experience very smooth. I highly recommend Eager Eye Photography!!!Sent on 10/15/2019
