I grew up in Niantic, CT, and went to Rochester Institute of Technology where I majored in Photojournalism and minored in Sociology. I started photographing weddings my sophomore year at college. It was immediately apparent how similar shooting a wedding was to the way I was being taught to cover stories in class. I was looking for the same moments, emotions, and descriptive elements of the story. Additionally, photographing something so similar every weekend was pushing me to be more creative.
I decided that photographing weddings to support the other stories I wanted to do on my own was an ideal way of working.
At weddings, as in my personal work, I work hard to blend in and work unobtrusively. I often get mistaken for a wedding guest, and to me that's success. Guests aren't distractions from the day's events, but they are also in the center of events–from where it is easiest to make intimate pictures.

Hi Rob, Thank you!! These photos are fantastic! We had so much fun looking through them together last night and shared the link and password with many of our guests. Almost every photo one of us said "Now THAT'S a great photo." You captured some precious faces of the children, families and couples sharing loving moments, my grandma, the sober guy's crazy dance moves...we're thrilled! Thanks again for the wonderful work--you helped capture our wonderful wedding day for the future! Dawn
