I rarely write reviews, but Oliver and Daniel from Brooktree Studios are absolutely fantastic!! They genuinely made the day so fun! Neither myself nor my husband are very comfortable posing in front of the camera so we were initially a little nervous, but Oliver and Daniel's light-hearted energy really made us relax and have fun with it. They did a fantastic job of directing us while still encouraging us to be ourselves. We had such a fun time spending the day with them that we were genuinely sad to see them leave at the end of the night!

Robert was seriously the best part of our entire wedding experience! He truly got to know my husband and I, and is one of the most genuine people! His photos are absolutely amazing, and he was constantly available to answer questions before engagement sessions and during our wedding. On your wedding day, you want someone that is going to be there, know what they are doing, and keep you calm, Robert is that photographer!
Nicole & Michael
Brooktree Studios was beyond amazing to work with! Throughout the crazy planning with a pandemic thrown in, he checked on us to make sure we were good, kept communication lines open, met with us and helped us with a timeline of the wedding day to ensure everything ran smoothly. We can't say enough good things about Robert (and Daniel!)--we received so many compliments on not just the pictures they took but on how well they vibed with everyone on the day of, the energy they brought, and just overall how wonderful they were to work with. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up!

Robert was an awesome photographer to work with! As someone who chronically worries about so many aspects, he made me really feel taken care of. The organization of all the photos and different groupings were something I thought would be stressful but was truly painless with his help and guidance. His chipper personality and overall funness really showed through. While dinner was being served and he was eating, he was editing photos from the ceremony and first dance so they could be displayed on his MacBook which was left on one of the gift tables for the remainder of the reception. Great touch! Look no further, this is the guy you want.
Dakota & Logan
Robert was so fantastic, he was hilarious and made himself a part of our day without getting in the way. He was hilarious and took fantastic photos. Would hire him every time!
Dustin & Paige
I can't say enough great things about how our wedding photos turned out. From getting ready to send off, Robert perfectly captured the day exactly how I want to remember it. From the look in my husband's eyes as I walked down the aisle to every personality of our loved ones on the dance floor, he got it all. We get so many compliments on our photos. Brooktree Studios is hands down the photographer you want for your wedding.
Megan & Phil
Robert is a dream photographer to work with! He helped our day flow so easily and had great ideas for different types of photos. He was so kind and easy to get along with and helped Phil and I feel relaxed and be ourselves throughout the entire day. We would recommend him to our friends and family a million times over.
Zachary & Megan
How can we describe Robert? He was definitely one of the most important and MOST REWARDING decisions that we made for our wedding day!! As a couple, we are not the most comfortable in front of a camera, and Robert was more than able to make us feel at ease, relaxed, and most importantly just help us to enjoy our special day. We honestly couldn't have had such a wonderful and care free weekend without him. If you are on the fence between Robert and another photographer, you will not regret booking him EVER.
Clarissa & Alex
Robert and his team work awesome to work with on my wedding day. He was the first photographer we contacted in our process and knew after the first call that we didn’t need anyone else. Both were incredibly funny and help divert my nerves. He already had his own plan but was super open to anything I wanted to add. Very organized and even brought clear umbrellas since it was raining that day for pictures. Robert was responsive, prompt, and gave a clear view of his services. My sneak peek pictures are incredible. Can’t wait to see the rest!
Michaela & Andy
As a self-proclaimed “picky” bride, picking a wedding photographer was a daunting task. Robert accommodated every need and request during the entire experience. While he was photographing, he gave great and timely advice, used natural lighting to create timeless photos we can step into for years to come, and caught natural expressions of emotions that completely set our wedding photos apart. If I had to do it all over, I would not change a thing and definitely have Robert be our photographer a hundred times over again!
