Best photographers, amazing people!

I'd give 500 stars if I could! Rob, Jess and Shannon are amazing photographers and so delightful to work with! They were incredibly helpful at important moments and making sure we stayed on schedule, even though it was definitely not their responsibility. Everyone felt so comfortable with them, and we had a lot of laughs. Our day was infinitely better and less stressful because of the team, and I'll definitely hire them for any other photo shoots we need. And the pictures came out so amazing--it was really hard to choose among them. Candid and posed pictures made everyone look great! Rob and team, we appreciate you so much! Thanks for making our wedding even more special!!!
