• NATASHA & DALE
An absolute pro with a laid back approach, quick to jump in on the action to get the best shots, but always in a way that feels fun and authentic, adding to the experience for guests rather than distracting. We picked him because of his artistic eye, experimental shots, and ability to capture everything we knew we’d miss; and he absolutely delivered. Thank you thank you, we absolutely love each and every photo!
• JESSICA & JACOB
Rob was our wedding photographer as well as our engagement shoot photographer. We cannot recommend him enough! Rob has an eye for detail and a creative side that is so hard to find in the wedding industry. He is full of interesting and unique ideas and you can’t go wrong putting your trust in him. On top of his skills, he is also extremely personable and helps you feel at ease throughout the process, regardless of how familiar you may or may not be with being in front of the camera. If you’re looking for an artistic approach then Rob is the perfect photographer for you!
“Extremely laid back and always made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process.”
• INES & MATT
My husband and I are basically the most awkward people you’ve ever seen in front of a camera. So when it came time to our engagement shoot, I was sweating buckets out my pits with anxiety. But Rob is pure magic—he actually got us to chill and channel our love in a not-stiff-armed way.
Throughout the entire process, Rob was a straight up MVP. He’s funny, charming, super organized and professional. Wedding planning can be stressful, but with Rob you can at least rest easy that your photographs are going to be THE BEST. As much of a hoss as he is (and as many weddings as he photographs), he still somehow manages to make you and your partner feel special. And delivers the images to prove that your love is actually unique.
• COLLEEN & JAMES
Rob is awesome! We knew from the first time we met him that he was the guy to shoot our wedding. Extremely laid back and always made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Not only is he amazing to work with but his work speaks for itself as well. Wedding photography can be really cookie cutter and look silly but Rob’s style is so authentic and he really made us feel as though he captured our style.
Have this dude shoot your wedding, you won’t regret it!
• DEANDRE & STUART
Before both our engagement session and our wedding, Rob confidently and enthusiastically stated, “Let’s make some art.” Beautiful works of art are precisely what Rob delivers when you hire him to photograph your most special occasions. We could not have been more impressed with the level of passion and professionalism that Rob brought. As someone who can get slightly nervous when in front of a camera, Rob’s laid back and fun approach to photographing his subjects instantly settled any nerves I had going in to each session. The photographs were fun, creative, and most importantly US. Thank you, Rob!
• MONIQUE & DUSTIN
We met with 5 wedding photographers prior to choosing Rob, and we definitely made the perfect choice! We wanted to make sure we went with someone who took a funky and creative approach to photography, but also took the traditional photos that would make our families happy. Rob truly captured the love, excitement, and fun that filled our wedding day. He even got his hands dirty photographing us with the alpacas at our venue. Highly recommended!!!
“Rob is pure magic—he actually got us to chill and channel our love in a not-stiff-armed way.”
• AUBREY & PATRICK
We must have looked at 30 different photographers before coming across Rob. One look at his photos and we knew he was it. We meet with Rob and discussed the plans for our wedding and engagement photos and it was like we had known each other for years. We got an itinerary for the day of for pictures and the order. He was very organized and was able to get all the shots as planed. He was professional, polite and my family just wanted to hang out with him the entire night. When the venue saw our pictures they contacted Rob to use them for advertising. Just hire him, you will not be sorry, best decision we made!
• CAROLYN & TIM
We picked Rob for our wedding and engagement photos because we liked his creative sense of composition and light contrast. And he really delivered on our photos! They went beyond documentation into lovely artistic shots. And he is a friendly yet professional person, who knows how to handle a large gaggle of tipsy family members.
• ELISA & JASON
Rob did a fantastic job photographing our wedding! He is so good and capturing all the details and the day as a whole, that make looking through the gallery just like reliving the day. He is so creative and artistic and takes truly unique pictures. We and all of our family, vendors, and friends love the images from our wedding. Thank you Rob!!
• AMY & KIM
Rob August Photography is the best!! Rob has an amazing eye and captured our day beautifully. He is ultra professional and we couldn’t thank him more for the work and love he showed us on our wedding day. Our photos were everything as the day is only just that, a day. These will last a lifetime! Thanks again for spending the entire day with us even in the rain! We will sing your praises to everyone!
“He was able to take so many candid shots without being obtrusive, we never really knew he was there.”
• ELISE & TAL
Came across Rob while scouring for an engagement photographer. His photos were a breath of fresh air in an industry that seems more interested in the pose than the people. We scheduled some time at a cafe before heading to the Greenbelt for sundown. When we met, Rob got a rundown of what vibe my fiancee and I were going for; because we had a pretty wide vision, he ended up doing a little bit of everything, which made for a great gallery. Rob built a quick rapport and made us feel very comfortable for the entirety of the time we had, checking with us if we were up for experimental stuff, and finding great shots just about everywhere he looked. Finally, he had the photos (and a stylized GIF!) to us faster than promised, and was communicative before and after the shoot. Would and will recommend Rob to anyone looking to get photos done to bring out the best in them.
• SARAH & KEVIN
It’s hard for me to think of what to say that hasn’t already been said. Rob’s photos will turn out beautifully. You will get the most truly YOU photos you could ask for.
We used Rob for our wedding photographer and he put us at ease the entire time and we couldn’t be happier with how our photos turned out. Rob caught the little moments between us on the big day and also the big moments of all of our family and friends gathered together celebrating love.
Rob was also helpful working with us to put together a plan for how we wanted photos, where we wanted to do them, and the action we should take to get them done.
• LAURA & NICK
Choosing the right wedding photographer can seem stressful, but Rob was the absolute perfect choice. We were lucky to have him for both our engagement photos and wedding. Not being a fan of overly cliché and pageant-style photos, Rob's work really impressed me. He captured our personalities so well and the energy of our guests. I would not change a single thing about our photos or the process of working with Rob. He has such a fun and upbeat personality, and I can't stress how great of an effect that can have on you on your big day. He's funny, curious, and has a youthful energy, but he's also very professional and takes his work seriously. We had a little over 100 guests at our wedding, including lots of family from all over, but he took control over the process like a pro. He worked so well with the other vendors and our guests really loved him. If you check out his portfolio, you can see he takes a different approach and adds a unique touch to all those great moments. I'm sure his career will continue to soar very quickly. Book him if you can and you'll be in great hands. One piece of advice - trust him. He knows how to make best use of the time and what works.
• ALLISON & CHRIS
After our initial meeting, I was sold. He was very down to earth and straight forward about how he likes to work, but at the same time, extremely accommodating to our needs and requests. With a photographer being one of the most important components of our big day, Rob put me at complete ease that everything would be perfect. Rob was very easy to communicate with, responding quickly to emails/texts in the months before our big day. The day of, Rob showed up earlier than I expected, which is a joy to any bride! He assured me that he would get all the shots I requested and more. The day went off without a hitch. Rob did an amazing job wrangling my crazy family, and keeping my husband at ease. I received tons of compliments that day, and in the days following, about how amazing the photographers were. I couldn’t have asked for things to go any smoother, and we ended up with the most beautiful pictures to remember such a special day! I can’t thank Rob enough for everything he did for us!!
“He delivered non-traditional photos that captured us in a way I haven't seen from other wedding photographers.”
• WYLEA & STEVE
Rob is AMAZING! My fiancé and I live in Midland, TX but wanted something fun and out of the box for pictures. After googling and searching I came across Rob. We scheduled a session and drove to Austin to do a photo shoot at Roadhouse Relics. He is so much fun and so easy to work with. We were beyond happy with what he delivered. We will definitely have him shoot pics for us again. Love his work!!
• DELTA & STEPHEN
We are so happy with the photos. Rob did an excellent job capturing special moments. Our pictures are just beautiful! We chose Rob, because his style of photography was what we were looking for, and he executed what we had envisioned. His artistic flare and creativeness translated into our photos, and now we have gorgeous photos that do our wedding justice.
• KIRA & SHANE
Rob is simply the best. Not only are his photos gorgeous, but he’s also such a fun and easy person to have following you around all day:) he understood exactly the kind of photographs we wanted to have on our special day. He got so many amazing candid shots during the reception without being obtrusive at all–I was actually having so much fun I forgot he was there for a little bit. I highly recommend him for any couples who are looking for a talented, unique, and sweet photographer.
• MARLA & ALEX
Rob was not only super cool as a person, but his photographs are seriously beautiful! We loved the artsy, romantic aspects to his portfolio and were so excited to have him photograph our engagements and wedding! If you want your pictures to look unique and awesome, Rob’s your guy.
• JENN & TY
My wife and I made the decision to hire Rob to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. How grateful and fortunate we are to have done so! From the beginning, Rob put us at ease with his expertise and professionalism. He really overdelivered on our expectations, working within some tight timelines while capturing the key shots and the overall aesthetic we were looking for.
Rob has a wonderful eye for composing a beautiful picture. The candids he was able to take for us really encapsulated the emotion of some of our best wedding day moments that could ultimately have gone uncaptured.
Speaking of Rob himself, he is a pleasure to work and hang out with. Our engagement shoot in Austin was a blast. We had shared some great laughs while taking pictures through a bustling South Congress.
What else can I say? Rob is the man. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing photographer packaged as an overall good dude. Hire him already.
• CORRYN & ERIK
Our wedding day was one of those moments in our lives that we only have one chance at. And even though everyone tells you how much of a blur your day is, it is a huge understatement. When Rob sent over our first round of photos, we realized how much we simply missed, but somehow Rob was able to capture the emotions of the day effortlessly. Flipping through the photos, they are not only gorgeous, but they allow us to relive the pure joy and love of the day; to relive our parents’ hugs, to hear the giggles of our nieces and nephews, and to hear the encouragement of our siblings. He was able to take so many candid shots without being obtrusive, we never really knew he was there. He is easy and fun to work with while being professional at the same time, and the quality of his photography is second to none. I know the one of the many things we’ll hold onto forever are the photos from our wedding day.
• CHELSEA & CRAIG
My wife and I couldn't be happier with Rob's work from start to finish. Choosing a photographer is obviously one of the hardest parts of wedding planning, and Rob really put us at ease from the very first meeting through to delivering the final products. Rob's photos are amazing and he made it very easy to be on camera which is something I have difficulty with. We'll cherish our photos forever and couldn't be happier to recommend Rob.
• JORDAN & CARSON
We highly recommend Rob! If you are looking for a photographer with a great eye and unique perspective, Rob is your guy. He delivered non-traditional photos that captured us in a way I haven't seen from other wedding photographers. As an artistic couple with high standards, he exceeded our expectations and we will cherish the images from both our engagement shoot and wedding.
• REBECCA & ALEX
It was so much fun working with Rob. He captured the whole family beautifully and made us feel at ease in front of the camera. He has a certain magic that appears in his photography, it’s apparent on his website... the way he captures the couple, the energy, the night. He delivered that for us, too! It was amazing to look through the photos and re-live the day, and the dance party! Thank you Rob!
• ESY & PAUL
Rob has one of the most unique ways of capturing moments I've ever seen. When we were looking for a wedding photographer, we already knew who we wanted - Rob. He will capture the moments on your wedding day in a creative and passionate way that will leave you with wedding photos unlike anyone else's. Highly recommended!
• JESSE & DAVE
HEADLINE: If you want beautiful, unique, photographs, and would like to work with an extremely fun photographer – then stop googling and hire Rob immediately. I’m telling you – close your 17 open tabs, email Rob, and pray he is available for your date. If he is booked, change your wedding date so you can get him.
DETAILS: Rob is professional, prompt, kind, and courteous. Even when you are struggling to make up your mind about the details, Rob is right there to give input and is always up to try new things out. Do you have a crazy idea about where and what to shoot? Rob. is. down.
TALENT: If you are already reading this review then you have noticed that Rob has an amazing eye for composition. We wanted pictures that reflected us, but also something beautiful that we could hang in our house as a piece of art and Rob was definitely the photographer to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. His style is artistic, fun, natural, sometimes Wes Andersony, and way different than most of the other wedding photographers out there right now.
PASSION: The moment you meet Rob you will notice the energy and passion he brings to his work. When Rob shoots, he is like a kid in a candy shop! He is always on the hunt for different locations, angles, lighting and objects to make the best picture possible. His energy and love for photography makes shooting with him so much fun and helps you relax. We didn’t feel like we were missing a moment of our wedding whenever he asked to pull us to shoot because of how quickly he worked and how much fun we were having with him.
CONS: The only downside of having Rob shoot your wedding is that your wedding guests will likely love Rob more than you. If you can set your ego aside, then it is all worth it. We would walk up to greet our wedding guests and the first thing they would blurt out, “WE LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS. Oh and you look very nice – thanks for the party!”
IN CONCLUSION: Hire Rob.
• LEAH & ADAM
We picked Rob as our wedding photographer because we saw him at work at our friends' wedding and we saw that he was personable, devoted, spontaneous, and professional. We looked at the work of several photographers and felt like Rob's pictures were so beautiful and representative of what we wanted. When we initially met him to discuss our wedding, he came with a bunch of questions about details that we would never have thought of, which was helpful in our planning process. During our engagement shoot, Rob put us at ease (as we'd never had photos done before) and helped us get comfortable in front of the camera. We were worried about the engagement shoot, but it ended up being lots of fun. During our wedding, Rob took care of some really complicated logistics (we had two venues, one was on a boat) and he came up with creative spots to shoot and was excellent working with (and wrangling) our families, especially our young nieces and nephews. The photos from our wedding are really stunning. He captured the story and the emotions of the day in a way that we both feel like we can relive when looking through the photos. I was especially happy about all the details he captured because I wasn't able to concentrate on details the day of! Seriously, so many awesome photos, we are "bowled over!" (We had bowling at our wedding.) Thank you, Rob!
• ERIKA & MARIO
We highly recommend Rob for all of your wedding photography needs! He completely got our vision and created unique timeless photos that we will treasure for years to come. Rob even created a beautiful wedding album with our favorite pictures that has become a coffee table centerpiece in our new home. If you’re looking for that creative touch to add to your wedding, go with Rob!
• ASHLEY & JOSH
Rob is amazing! He absolutely nailed our wedding proposal photos! We did a walk through of the surprise proposal location and he provided the perfect professional advise from a photographers standpoint. The shots came out so good KXAN reposted them! Robs easy to work with and an all around good guy. I highly recommend Rob August Photography!
• ALLISON & DAVID
Rob was great to work with. I think he captured our wedding perfectly with without felling like we had a camera on us all great. Highly recommend him!
• ALLISON & ELLIOT
Rob photographed our wedding with such attention to detail and professionalism, all the while capturing the sweetest and most candid moments of the day. He is a real master at capturing light perfectly, and has such an eye for composition. He is fun, thoughtful, and thinks outside the box. Cannot recommend Rob enough! You will not be disappointed if you choose him for your wedding!!
• LESLIE & DUSTY
My wife and I wanted to do a small simple wedding at my grandma's beautiful house. We invited less than 60 guests and only needed a photographer for 2 hours, which was hard to find. Rob offered us a 2 hour session and after one phone conversation he and my wife had our full wedding itinerary planned according to the sunset. If Rob had just showed up when we originally planned, our photos would have been too dark, but thankfully Rob convinced us to move our wedding up earlier in the afternoon and because of this, our photos look amazing. Rob not only knows how a wedding should run, he is constantly scanning the surroundings looking for unique photo locations or objects. He was essential to our wedding running smoothly, and of course, the pictures turned out amazing. Thanks Rob!
• MELISSA & MATT
Rob.....Where to begin...Well to begin, Rob is one of the most talented technical portrait photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. His command of the camera is that kin to a sushi chef and his knife. Controlled, measured, and sometimes willing to try things that may not work but may end up with a fantastic new product. Rob uses very little post processing because of his light and spatial intelligence. His products look and have a feel of reality. With his command of lines, repetition in architectural spaces, light, and perspective he makes both his subjects and space relate and brings out the beauty of both.
Yes his pictures are good, but his client relations are equal. At our wedding he really engaged with the entire party. Either in individual shots or candids he manages to make people feel comfortable and forget they are having their photos taken. What could be an anxiety ridden uncomfortable situation, Rob peppers it with jokes and comments that get you to relax and smile even when you are trying not to.
Overall, worth every penny. To this day there is not a week that goes by without us pouring over our photos. He immortally made us look great on the one day we wanted to. Thank you Rob. We will and look forward to working with you in the future.
