On most weekends you can find Robert ("Bobby") photographing weddings—either in New York (where he lives) or farther a field: in various locations around the US and abroad. Bobby finds wedding ceremonies to be more than just a series of actions, people, and images to be “captured,” but rather recognizes them as events full of deep personal and cultural significance, particular to a specific time and place and community. As such, he assumes the responsibility of documenting these moments with great respect, believing them to be deserving of a discerning eye and an artistic hand. In this way, he hopes to help each couple honor the beauty not only of age-old traditions, but also the distinctive and meaningful celebrations fashioned by those couples. Bobby enjoys getting to know each one of his clients through the places, symbols, rituals, and yes—food-- that are unique to their tradition and infuses those elements into the story he tells through pictures. Bobby applies the same personal perspective and distinct artistic flair to all of his photographic endeavors. By working with a limited number of couples and developing a rapport with each allows couples to represent their natural and best selves, couples simply love to work with him.
