    Rob, Joalis,and their staff were probably one of the best decisions I made in regards to my wedding! I could not have asked for better wedding pictures or wedding video! From the start of the wedding planning process to the end, Rob was there for me every step of the way. He was also really excited about our country theme which made the whole experience better. Rob is not one of those “all business people” where they just take their pictures, mind their own, and just do their job. NO! Rob actually takes care in his craft to provide the most beautiful products that can be! He had his plan of what he wanted but also took the time to add in whatever miscellaneous pictures we wanted, as well as borrowing us for those extra pictures that truly capture what your venue has to offer. Rob makes sure you get every pennies worth and have the most remarkable day possible! I am a down to earth county girl and I have never felt like more of a queen that I did on my wedding day, and I have the best pictures in the world to show and remember it! Thank you so much Rob, we will definitely be coming back for future pictures!!!

    Best Decision I Made!

    Rob and Joa were fabulous; everything you want in a vendor. Responsive to emails and calls, explained everything to us, up front pricing, attentive the day of our wedding, highest quality photos/video and a joy to work with. They were early on our big day and got right to business. Rob kept us on schedule and worked around the time crunch when we were running behind. They coached us when we needed it and just made the entire experience fun. Their videographer team is also amazing I am so glad we decided on video as well! I loved that they worked with us on changes to our pictures and video. The quality of our pictures and video is something we can’t put a price on and best of all their turn around time was all of a couple weeks for everything. Overall we couldn’t be happier with our final product!

    Fantastic team!

    Rob and Joa were so wonderful! We did engagement photos with Rob and had a blast! We knew we picked the right photographers for our wedding. Rob is so fun-loving and easy-going while Joa keeps the whole show moving! They work very well together and produced some amazing images. We can't wait to see the full album!

    One Of The Best Decisions We Made

    We hired Rob & Joa to photograph and video our daughters wedding. They were so pleasant and easy to work with and made accommodations to our changes. They sent the short video within a week or two and the final video not too long after. They too a great variety of photos making it difficult for us to select the few we want for an album. They had some great selections and came very prepared. You won't be sorry if you contract with them.

    We couldn’t be any happier to recommend Rob and Joalis for wedding photography. They went above and beyond to ensure every moment of our special day was captured. They were very professional, showed up early, and stayed late. We are very pleased with all the attention and effort they put towards our wedding photos. There was light rain during our outdoor ceremony, which made my wife and I a bit worried about how the photography and videography would turn out. However, the results exceeded our expectations, and they didn’t hesitate to bring out the umbrellas and get a little wet. We also did our engagement photo shoot with Rob, and knew that he was going to be the perfect fit as he’s very personable and made us feel comfortable during the shoots. He also didn’t mind walking to different sites with us to take a variety of different photos. He shared a few photos and our wedding highlight video the day after our wedding, and we had many friends/family complement their work. If you’re looking for experienced, professional photographers that love what they do, look no further. We give them five stars out of five, and are recommending them to all our friends getting married this upcoming year.

    Awesome job Rob & Joa!!

    I literally don’t have the words to tell you how awesome Rob and Joa have been. They have been an absolute dream to work with. During our pre-wedding shoot they put us at ease straight away, we laughed lots and the photos were just awesome.
    Rob and Joa did such an amazing job on our wedding day where they managed to capture so many wonderful moments even those we missed! The photos are just out of this world and tell the story of our day so perfectly. Don’t book your wedding until you have booked Rob and Joa – you need these guys for your wedding! ❤️

    Paca House Wedding Photographer

    Rob is an easy-going guy who was easy to work with through-out the entire process of planning our Annapolis wedding at the William Paca House. He and his team of photographers did an awesome job capturing the day and we would recommend him to anyone looking to find a great photographer for a reasonable price (which also included an engagement shoot and photo album).

    We loved working with them. is one of the best decisions that we made in planning our wedding. The photos of our wedding beat our expectations, which were set very high after seeing the awesome work in their portfolio. Their work really captured the fun had by everyone at our events, as well as the uniqueness of everyones personalities. They were, friendly, helpful, professional, punctual, and fun every step of the way. Thank you Robert for being awesome and capturing such fabulous and artistic images of the best day of our lives!

    Rob, Joalis, and the whole GMS crew were fabulous to work with. They were beyond kind to my entire bridal party and truly made for a comfortably photography/videography experience. They were flexible and accommodating as I asked to add an hour of additional service towards the end of our reception. Our highlight video was amazing and it was completed within two days which was a great teaser to be able to view!

    Rob and his team were fantastic! We received our highlight video within a few days and we were all crying remembering how special the day was to us! It was so awesome to receive this video while also on our honeymoon!

    The team was energetic and a blast to work with! We had an awesome venue with a lot of photo opportunities and they were definitely creative helping us to capture the best shots. We opted not to do engagement photos - which we were worried we wouldn't feel comfortable when the wedding day came; however, there was definitely no need to worry. The team made us feel comfortable almost immediately. Would definitely recommend to others!

    Rob and his team were great. Everything came out as we had hoped. The photo shoot a few weeks before the wedding was really nice. Then on the weeding day, the photographers and videographers took some great pictures and videos - and were very friendly and helpful. The highlight was (literally) the highlight video that we received less than a week after our wedding. It was short enough that we could share with our family and friends right away. Overall we are very happy with choosing GMS.

    Robert Diffenderfer is truly an artist. He chose such lovely settings for our photo shoots and highlighted the most beautiful elements of our wedding. His creativity of composition in some of the still life shots was simply stunning. In fact, he captured the style I was trying to create more effectively than I had in the event itself. He also captured the energy and joy of our celebration, really telling a joyful story through the candid pictures throughout the day.

    Robert was a joy to work with. He interacted pleasantly, effectively, and efficiently with us and with our guests. He fulfilled his contract commitments and kept in communication with us before and after the wedding. We highly recommend Robert Diffenderfer and are very excited with how beautifully he captured our wedding celebration.

    Rob and Joalis are AMAZING!!!! We had our ceremony in Breckenridge, CO and the reception in Savage, MD and they stuck with us the entire time.
    Joalis created the most beautiful, heartwarming highlight reel of our intimate ceremony in the mountains. She had 1 day to create it so we could showed it at our reception and it still somehow came out perfectly. She worked tirelessly to address my many questions and concerns. Everyone at the reception said that after watching it, they felt like they were right there with us!
    Despite the unexpected altitude sickness and cold weather, Rob spent the entire day capturing every moment on camera. He had the photos back to me within 2 days and I could not be happier. It is some of the most beautiful photography I have ever seen. Even with the wind and bright sun, he was able to provide so many truly gorgeous shots. The photography and videography was by far the most important thing to me and GMS completed exceeded our expectations. They are some of the most genuine, hardworking people I have ever met, and I will most definitely be using them for when we have children and other photo-worthy milestones in our lives! I cannot thank them enough!

    Rob was very responsive and professional and helped us choose the right package for our big day. The day of the weather was terrible and we had to take mostly indoor pictures, but managed to find a place where we could have beautiful outdoor pictures.
    He was also great at directing people to ensure we had all the pictures we wanted.

    Rob and his team were amazing. They did not only take pictures and video, they captured the moments. There were so many details we did not remember from our day until we saw the video and pictures, but the GMS team captured them for us. We cannot say thank you enough for your work!

    Rob, Joalis, and our day of Videographers were all amazing! I have seen some incredible highlight reels, but ours is by far one of the best I've seen. I was in awe when I first watched it. Not to mention, we received it less than a week after the weeding--so quickly! Of course the full video took longer, but it was still ready to be viewed less than two months after the weeding. I've already watched it several times and love all of the footage they were able to capture. They beautifully captured all of the important highlights of the day, as well as many small details that could have easily been overlooked. Our videographers were very professional, but also very friendly and personable so we were comfortable with them following us around and being close during the intimate moments of the day. They were detail oriented and made sure to get shots exactly the right way with the right lighting. They worked well with my photographer, working together to capture moments and enjoying what they were doing while they worked. I can't say enough great things about the GMS team on the most important day of our lives thus far, they really captured the day exactly as I want to remember it forever. Thank you GMS!!

    I cannot begin to tell you how pleased and elated my husband and I have been with this vendor. We had 2 videographers and 2 photographers: Taraneh, Jose, Ben and another gentleman. From beginning to end they were extremely professional and detail oriented. The day of our wedding I was taken aback by the creative shots and suggestions that the photographers came up with above and beyond the original shot list we had submitted. Not to mention I have gotten back our highlight reel and have watched it nonstop and shared with friends, family, and co-workers. We all have had the same reaction: the videographers were able to capture the essence that is our relationship as well as the true emotions that we felt that day. I swear I cry every time I watch the video it was just that well done.
    If at all you are on the fence about booking this vendor I will tell you, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to get our wedding photos back! If they're anything like our highlight reel than I know they will be masterfully done. BOOK THIS VENDOR!

    Rob and his team are phenomenal! One of the best choices we made for our wedding, and now we are able to call GMS our friends! We used their photo and video services, and cannot wait to see the final product! They made our wedding day go by so smooth, and were extremely nice and easy to work with. Highly, highly recommend GMS!
