Magical memories captured
If you want the true magic of your day captured, then you should hire Rob Hickey to be your wedding photographer. Not only is Rob exceptionally easygoing, he's also incredibly professional. He has a quick, artistic eye and knows how to get an incredible shot at every turn. Photography was a top priority for us, and Rob exceeded our expectations. His photojournalistic approach allows for many candid moments and had everyone at the wedding very relaxed in front of the camera. Our photos look timeless and sophisticated. We would also recommend booking Rob for an engagement shoot because not only do the photos look great, but you have the opportunity to work with him prior to the big day and get familiar with his style. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.Sent on 10/08/2019

Rob Hickey Photography-Easy Going and Professional
Rob was easy going and great to work with from beginning to end. We have a young, infant daughter and large families and he adapted to all the varying needs that come with that! He captured the spirit of the day and night very well with a keen eye for capturing candid photos especially!Sent on 09/23/2019

Amazing and creative photographer!
My wife and I are very happy that we went with Rob Hickey Photography. Rob came right to our house and brought several examples of his work for us to view. Rob will tell you that he will try to make it seem like he isn't there to capture more natural photos. He does just that! The photos were very natural and in the moment. Very few were staged during the reception, which really captured the joy and fun during the night. Rob is very skilled in various areas of photography and is always trying new things. Rob had some great ideas with sparklers, the sunset, and off-camera lighting. The creativeness really showed in our photos. Rob's prices were very reasonable and he also offered a wedding photography registry that we took advantage of, receiving gifts through this from our guests. Rob works with some great photographers so I highly recommend that you choose a package with two photographers.Sent on 08/01/2019

When my search for a photographer started I was feeling overwhelmed with all of the different packages and price points everyone had to offer. I had to choose what I thought might fit our needs based on websites and reviews since we live out of state. I came across Rob's work and knew pretty quickly that his style fit exactly what we were looking for. Communication was easy as he was very quick to respond to emails and sent us a few full weddings to look through that he had done before we officially signed on with him. His attention to detail is amazing and he is very laid back and easy to work with. We are thrilled with how our photos turned out and highly recommend Rob for your big day!!Sent on 07/22/2019

My husband and I had a fantastic time working with Rob! He was great about communicating all the necessary details leading up to the wedding, made sure to capture all the family and group pictures we wanted and made the whole process so easy! We had multiple guests make a point to tell us they thought he was fantastic to work with as well. We got our pictures back quickly and absolutely love them!Sent on 12/11/2018

We cannot say enough great things about working with Rob for our wedding day! From day one, Rob was very quick to respond to email/phone calls. Being an out of town couple, he was able to work with us over the phone for all of our needs. Leading up to the day, we filled out a detailed questionnaire that covered things one could easily forget. The day of our wedding, Rob walked in, knew everyones name and knew exactly how to get us started with getting ready photos. His calm demeanor really gave me confidence that he was going to get all the shots we needed without missing any. The weather didn't cooperate on our wedding day, but Rob had some ideas using the decor of our venue to help get some great group shots. After receiving our photos online, my husband and I could not be more impressed with his style and eye for detail. Again, highly recommend!Sent on 11/11/2018

Amazing wedding photographer!!
My husband and I were extremely pleased with Rob as our wedding photographer! From start to finish, he put our minds at ease with how organized and detail oriented he was! Rob went above and beyond to capture our special day. He scouted out the best places around the area ahead of time and had great ideas that really kept the momentum going and maximized our time! Our whole wedding group made comments afterwards about how friendly and fun Rob was to work with! We just received the final pictures and are absolutely thrilled with how they all turned out! He captured so many combinations and unique backgrounds that truly make each picture so special! We would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day!!Sent on 11/04/2018

Rob is the very best!
Rob was a joy to work with. He took the time to get to know us before the wedding, was truly professional and flexible during the wedding, and made our photos available very shortly after. His photographs are superb. Rob also did a wonderful job coordinating with our videographers. We can't say enough good things about Rob and his work. We're so glad he was a part of our wedding.Sent on 10/30/2018

Rob is the BEST. He was referred to me through someone I work with and I am so thankful to have been linked up with him. He is incredibly supportive and thorough throughout the entire planning process.Sent on 11/19/2018
When we cancelled our engagement shoot due to poor weather, Rob worked with us to figure out an alternative. He ended up shooting our rehearsal dinner and the photos were amazing. I am so thankful that he was flexible and worked with our vision of the wedding weekend.
On the day of our wedding, Rob and his assistant James captured every shot I could've imagined wanting to see. We had a blast with them and they both made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera.
I couldn't imagine working with any other photographer. I look forward to working with Rob for future family shoots! Thank you for everything. You are amazing.

When my now-husband and I began to look into vendors, we talked about the things that were most important to us...and the photographer was at the top of the list. We wanted someone to capture the day and allow us to relive the experience with our future children years down the road. We connected with Rob through Classy Cat Entertainment as part of a whole wedding package and we couldn't have been happier with his work. Rob exceeded all our expectations and his pictures were worth every penny, I highly recommend him and would absolutely work with him again. Rob did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding day. He was professional, responsive, fun, and easy going throughout the whole process. We had a few issues pop up, but Rob was flexible, open, and able to improvise and reassess different pictures, poses and settings to make sure he got the best shots. Rob has a great eye for detail and it truly shows in his images. We also had a second shooter, Morgan, on the day of our wedding, which was extremely helpful. Morgan was friendly and easy to work with, she was able to capture a lot of the guests arriving and cocktail hour while Rob was with us and our wedding party. It was definitely a worthwhile investment to have two photographers. I also have to say, Rob's turn around time was fantastic. For both our engagement and wedding pictures, we only had to wait about 2 weeks to have access to the online gallery. The hard part now is deciding which pictures we want to print because there are so many that I love!Sent on 10/16/2018
Rob Hickey Photography's reply:I'm so grateful have been able to work with you and Anthony on both your wedding and engagement shoots. You're both such nice people as are your family and friends. I wish the best for you both!

Best of the Best
Rob is professional, attentive, fun, extremely talented, and worth every penny.Sent on 10/07/2019
Rob was the second shooter at our wedding. It was clear that he has an incredible eye and can find the most beautiful backdrops in the most uncommon places. Because of that, we hired him to take pictures to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary.
We sent Rob some ideas ahead of time and he made all our requests come true while making my husband and I look natural. Despite only being a two-hour session, going to two locations, and doing a wardrobe change, we never felt rushed and he was constantly showing us previews on his camera so we left our session knowing we were getting exactly what we wanted.
My husband and I highly recommend Rob and we can't thank him enough for our beautiful pictures.
Molly · Married on 09/02/2018
We loved working with Rob! He called us a few times before our event to discuss our style, and he was very accommodating of our shot requests. He had great suggestions for our family and couple pictures. During the day, he was very relaxed and photographed our best moments without making us feel like we were being followed. Best of all, he scoped out some great spots for night pictures! He took some stunning shots of us overlooking the lake where we got married at night. We love our photos and are now just having a hard time picking which ones to hang on the wall!Sent on 10/03/2018
Rob Hickey Photography's reply:Molly, thank you for the kind words. I absolutely enjoyed working with you and Ben on your wedding day. Your lakeside ceremony and reception offered so many breathtaking views, and your family and friends were so wonderful. Some of my personal favorite photos were captured during your wedding including the final night shot overlooking the lake with you and Ben.
Larissa · Married on 08/08/2018
Rob was amazing!!! Not only did the photos turn out great but he was very personable and friendly...i was super nervous about taking pictures on my wedding day because I normally hate photos of myself and shy away from them but he found a way to make it comfortable and fun so I can have great memories of my day. He also managed to capture all the special memories without me even realizing he was taking photos. My husband and I rave about him and would definitely recommend!Sent on 09/04/2018
Rob Hickey Photography's reply:Larissa, Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and Damone. You're both true class acts and I'm grateful to have been able to capture your special day in images!

Rob Hickey Photography's reply:Eric, you and Charity were a joy to work with. I felt instantly at ease with you two, and your young son was so incredibly photogenic. I don't think I've ever worked with a baby so happy all the time. The best to you and your family!

Katie · Married on 06/29/2018
We were totally blessed to find Rob through Wedding Bug. We spoke before the big day and he made sure he had all my requests down and knew what our vision was for the day. On our wedding day he arrived to the venue early to get set up and take a few photos of the room. As soon as I met Rob I knew his lively and kind personality was going to help make the day a breeze. All of the photos he took turned out absolutely stunning and he covered every shot I was looking for. Throughout the whole process he had great suggestions and fun ideas that brought out a very natural side of our bridal party. He was able to capture all the emotional moments of the day as well as the silly sides of our guests as everyone danced the night away. We ended up with a beautiful collection of photos each with unique angles and lighting. He was never in the way, but always where he needed to be. Rob is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with! I can't wait to have another opportunity to use his great photography services! Sincere thanks ~ Katie & JPSent on 07/15/2018
Rob Hickey Photography's reply:Katie, You, JP, your friends and Family were so fun to work with. I love that you put aside plenty of time for the formals and just went with it, allowing me to capture such a variety of images for you two. I'm so grateful for you choosing me to cover your wedding day! Thank you!
Molly · Married on 01/07/2018
We could not have asked for a better photographer than Rob! I had first met Rob at a wedding expo a year before my wedding. What really turned me on to his services was the unique warmth that all of his photos had to them, combined with how personable and pleasant Rob was.Sent on 02/25/2018
A month in advance of our wedding, Rob had a phone meeting with us to see what we liked and did not like, shots we wanted and what we wanted to avoid, and made sure my now-husband and I had a clear understanding of what the plan was for the day for photography. We had hired Rob to be a part of our day from when we got dressed until the party was over (9 hours) and he was chipper, interactive, and accommodating the entire time. Rob really wowed us with the shots he was able to capture - from the planned portraits to the candids, and some of our favorite photos were the ones that people had no idea he was taking. He prepared well in advance by arriving early to experiment with lighting and meet everyone so that he could get the best photos possible for us. The man even withstood negative degree temperatures to take photos of my groom and I outside for our winter wedding!
From a month before the wedding until even months after, Rob is always an email or call away and has a great response time. Snatch him up for your engagement shots or wedding day!
Colleen · Married on 10/21/2017
Rob Hickey is an amazingly talented photographer with an eye for detail and creativity with his shots. In the 8 months leading up to our wedding, Rob met with us in person, corresponded through countless emails, answered all of our questions, had us complete a questionnaire to get more information about what we wanted, and held a phone conference with us just before the wedding day to finalize details. He made sure to discuss our “must-have” photos, which included large-group extended-family shots that Rob coordinated flawlessly during our reception. He was organized, helpful, respectful, and personable. Rob kept to a timeline during the wedding day which ensured that things ran smoothly for the entire 10 hours he was with us. The beautiful images Rob captured speak to his capabilities as a photographer. Rob loves what he does, and it is clear that he wants to help make your day special by capturing moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. The stunning quality of his shots far surpassed our expectations. We are forever grateful to have these memories from this amazing day in our lives! We are very lucky and thankful that we chose Rob as our photographer!Sent on 05/13/2018
Amanda · Married on 08/12/2017
Rob was such a pleasure to work with. From the moment I first talked to him, I knew he understood what I wanted in my photos. He was extremely patient and cooperative with trying to get family photos outside before it started raining. He was taking pictures up until the last second it started raining so we didn't miss any opportunities. Just like any weddings, nothing ever goes as planned, and Rob was kind enough to stay a little longer than scheduled so we didn't miss out on our cake cutting. Rob has a great eye and will without a doubt provide you with beautiful pictures to cherish for a lifetime.Sent on 10/04/2017

Rob did an amazing job at capturing us and all our family and friends on our wedding day (7/7/17)! I am sure it was challenging because it was a very hot day outside, but all the pictures came out great! I am so glad to have met him at the Syracuse Bridal Show! We will treasure these photos forever. Thanks again Rob!Sent on 04/18/2018

My husband and I felt so fortunate to have had Rob capture our special moments on our wedding day. He was fun to work with. I love how enthusiatic he was about shooting at our venue and he came up with such creative ideas. I knew we would see some awesome images but I was truly blown away at the quality of our sneak peak photos. He edited efficiently as we were able to see all of our images so quickly, both in black and white and in color. Not only did he capture the intimate and beautiful moments of our ceremony but he also took a ton of candid shots at our reception, which was a blast. Thanks Rob for allowing us to relive our special day through your work, it means so much to us!!Sent on 04/24/2017

Let me start by saying Rob is an incredible photographer and genuinely nice person. I do not have any experience with photography and when it came to choosing a photographer for our wedding, I didn’t know how to choose. We found Rob at a Bridal Show. We liked his photographs and he was available for our date, so we booked him immediately. I know that doesn’t really sound good, but it was one of my luckiest moments; how Rob was not yet booked, I do not know, but it was meant to be.Sent on 04/03/2017
While I thought the most important characteristic of a photographer was the quality of their pictures (don’t get me wrong, that is important), I didn’t realize how helpful Rob would be in planning and scheduling our day. As usual, I was behind on planning and had not found a place to take photographs. I wanted outdoor pictures with flowers and nature. I looked at multiple places and told Rob I was having trouble finding an available venue. He ended up looking online for me and asking his colleagues for places in the area that would fit my criteria. He definitely went above and beyond in the planning process.
When it came to the wedding day, he showed up much earlier than requested so he could find the best place for photos given the rainy, dreary day. He stood in the rain, in mud puddles, and let me take photos with my soaking wet horse. He stayed even later than requested at the end of the wedding to make sure we could get the dramatic, night pictures we had requested. One last great example I have that speaks to the quality of person Rob is occurred during our processional. Unfortunately, his camera malfunctioned during the processional and photos could not be taken. While all photographers are covered in their contract for accidents like this, he offered us extra photos for the inconvenience. Combine this with everything he had already done for us and we felt as though we were not just a contract to him but people that he cared about and wanted to give us the best.

When we set out to find a wedding photographer we had not a clue what we were doing or where to start. We did know though what we wanted; we wanted a photographer that would capture our unique venue and adventurous spirit.Sent on 03/12/2017
When we found Rob’s website we immediately fell in love with his photography. We could not have found a more perfect person to capture our special day. His style, and the composition of his photos were exactly what we were looking for.
Our venue and were we live were extremely far apart but Rob was willing to meet with us over multiple video calls in the months leading up to the wedding, where we discussed how we wanted our wedding to be photographed.
Rob not only captured every special moment of our wedding, he became a part of the family. He came a day early to get set up, get to know our families, and plan the wedding day shots. On the day of the two of us, having so much going on around us and so many more things on our minds, it was great to have Rob spend the time directing us to get the specific shots we wanted but also allow the day to play out and capture all the candid natural moments that first attracted us to his photography.
We are so thankful for Rob’s thoughtful approach and the way our pictures came out! If we ever are in need of a photographer again, he will be our first call!
