Photo & Video Packages
We had a small wedding; nothing too fancy, the venue we booked came with a photographer and videographer but we still booked Rob too; because he did our engagement shoot. In the end, we were more than glad we did. Rob and his team moved around the room and got every shot. We looked like royalty in the photos and the video was way longer than we expected which made for a great family movie night!”
I love the visuals Rob puts out for my brand Beast Mode! His videos blow my mind! I’m especially thankful that he agreed to fly out and shoot my sister’s wedding even though it was last minute. The pictures came out beautiful and the video is like a movie!”

I know Rob from working in the TV industry, I was surprised when he said he’d be into filming and doing photography for my wedding, I know he usually works on Netflix projects and big label music videos. I was so impressed with his professionalism that day and with the content. I knew it was going to be a movie but the content we got was amazing and I’m happy to say out of all the stars in my family I have the nicest wedding shots!”
WHAT IS A MICRO WEDDING?
A micro wedding is an intimate affair, typically with no more than 50 guests. They still feature time-honored traditions that make a wedding but on a much smaller scale. An intimate wedding enables your professional photographer to capture more of those sweet, candid moments with your new spouse and your guests.

MICRO WEDDING FAQs
Every wedding is unique in styling & timing, therefore the amount of coverage that you need may vary from someone else’s needs and that is why we offer three collections with different hourly coverage! Having said that, our preferred amount of coverage and our most frequently booked collection includes 8 hours. Eight hours gives Rob and the team the perfect amount of time to thoroughly tell the story of your wedding day without feeling rushed, left with too much downtime, or missing important details/moments.
but if you think you need more or less time, let’s chat!
Our gear includes professional-grade Red Digital Cinema bodies, Canon bodies, Sony Bodies, a variety of Pro & Cinema lenses + external lighting equipment by Aputure, Godox, Nanlite & More.

We don’t charge extra for things like drone shots, if your location can accommodate them & we feel it’s best for the film and if we have time, we will definitely do it. But sometimes it’s just not called for or applicable so we don’t want to charge you and have to give you bad news the day of. Whatever package you go far you’re going to get stunning shots.

An engagement session is a great idea for so many reasons! not only does the session allow all three of us to bond and get to know each other in preparation for your wedding day, but it gives you guys a chance to warm up to me taking your pictures, which most couples have never done before. another perk of doing an engagement session is that I get to see how you two interact which gives me a better idea of how best to work with you on your wedding day. and lastly, engagement photos are a great way to document this special stage in your lives together!
So whether you’re into a formal sunset session downtown or a cozy, intimate shoot in your own home, I encourage every couple that I work with to consider participating in an engagement session.

One thing to note is on moments like “the first look” from both the party’s points of view with a single operator it is not possible. (Unless faked on one end.) If this is important to you and you don’t mind having extra crew members then let us know and we can make it happen. In addition, having an assisted operator is even more efficient because the assistant will make the operator’s life a breeze so they can get the most coverage. Portraits and Family Portraits are all professionally lit on the ceremony or reception grounds.
