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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!!!
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!
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!
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.
MEGAN & ANDREW
My wife and I used Rob’s services for our wedding and he went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. The first thing he did was simply meet with us over coffee and get to know us as a couple, and it showed in his finished work. His professionalism and candor were both refreshing and reassuring. I personally feel like I am not a photogenic individual, and neither my wife nor I had any experience working with professional photographers, but none of that mattered. What all engaged couples hear about the entire wedding being a blur are 150% true, but Rob will make sure every bright, loving, positive moment in your wedding is captured forever.
Thank you, Rob!
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.
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!!
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.
JAY & STEVE
I’m the giant feet in the cover photo! Rob is such a sweetheart with extraordinary skills. My fiance and I had a blast walking around downtown Austin with Rob for our engagement session. When we received the link to our online gallery we were more than impressed with not only the variety of themes we ended up with but also how much personality there were to every single piece. He does magic with the most ordinary moments.. there’s really nobody like him! Thanks again Rob!
MATTY & RYAN
Rob is the absolute BEST. His ability to capture some of the sweetest moments of your special day is unbelievable. I wish we could get married again so I could hire Rob to shoot another wedding! Do yourself a favor and book with him, you seriously won’t regret it!!!
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.
ALLISON & LUIS
Rob is an excellent photographer and recently did our engagement photos for us. I am a bit awkward at posing, since I’m not used to being the subject of photos (I am usually the designer & photographer), and he helped crack jokes and break the ice to get us to loosen up, knew exactly how to frame the shots, and knew how to pose me and my fiancé so it could turn out rad. The shots were artsy, creative, had awesome lighting, and are unique (they don’t look like your average Joe engagement photos). Plus he was super speedy with delivering the photos to us! I would recommend him to anyone, and will tell my friends about him for sure.
LAUREN & MATT
Rob was a pleasure to work with! From the initial meeting, to the delivery of our photo album, he was professional and courteous at all times. He made sure to capture all of our important moments without us feeling awkward or uncomfortable. We had a long list of family members we wanted to have in our formals. Rob was very patient and offered direction where needed to get the perfect photos. After the ceremony, he took some shots of just my husband and I until the sun started going down–and even then, he was prepared with the right equipment to produce the most stunning pictures. The reception photos were some of our favorites because he captured us all having fun. And funny enough, the day after, guests told us how much fun the photographer was! We had originally opted for just the digital delivery of the photos but after we saw them, we decided we definitely needed a hard copy. Rob went out of his way to facilitate the design and delivery of our album which came out beautifully! We loved our whole experience and would gladly work with him again for our next event!
STEPHANIE & CARTER
OMG. Hire this man! Rob was amazingly thorough throughout the entire process. He not only created beautifully unique photos but helped us to plan out who to capture for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding day. He was one of the very few willing to traveled out to Hunt, Texas where our wedding weekend was on the river a few hours away from Austin. He also maintained great follow up post wedding to make sure both sides parents and bride and groom got the photos. His professional yet laid back style made it all a very enjoyable experience. He was by far one of my favorite vendors to work with. We love our pictures and love Rob!
SAFFRON & DANIEL
When I began looking for a wedding photographer I quickly got very discouraged. 90% of what was out there was the exact style I knew I wanted nothing to do with. I wanted to have vivid, colorful pictures that reflected the energy and fun I always imagined would be a part of my wedding. After all, we chose to have our wedding on Halloween! After searching I couldn’t believe when we came across Rob’s website and saw his photos. They were exactly what I was looking for. They were stunning of course, but mostly you could see how much life was being captured in those moments. Photography is one of the most important things in a wedding by far, and we felt completely at ease. The day of the wedding I arrived to find that Rob had been there practically before anyone else getting ready and taking shots of the venue, dress, bouquet, etc. He was even able to coach my husband who has the strangest inability to pose for any type of picture. He got great shots of him! He captured beautiful moments that turned out to be the perfect moments. I would recommend him to honestly anyone. We couldn’t be more happy with his work and care.
TIFFANI & JAMES
My husband and I’s experience with Rob on our wedding day couldn’t have been more positive. Rob arrived early to take what turned out to be some truly great photos of the venue. They perfectly captured the rustic beauty of the loft space. While photographing my spouse and I getting ready, Rob and his partner captured personal moments with friends and family without being invasive in any way. It was in no way awkward or uncomfortable which was originally a concern of mine. Our wedding party was a particularly lovely bunch. When the time arrived to take their photos, Rob was one hundred percent up to the task of providing guidance that was friendly yet firm. The photos turned out uniquely hilarious while still sticking to the theme of romance. However, the images that we received of the ceremony and reception were our absolute favorites. Since the venue itself was very large, we were initially concerned that important moments could be missed. Somehow, he found a great balance! When we received our photo album, we were astonished at how much Rob and his assisting photographer had captured. They didn’t miss a beat! We still continue to receive compliments on the wedding photos that we have on display. I’d highly recommend Rob August to any couple for their wedding, especially if they’re looking for fresh and unique results!
SARA-MAI & TRAVIS
There was a lot of debate over if/how much we should pay for a photographer for our intimate, 11 person wedding. We chose to work with Rob and couldn’t be happier with our decision! Our photos are amazing, and he went above and beyond to do some cool animations and post-production artsy stuff. 😉 Everyone has been blown away by his talent and we are thrilled with our photos. Rob was easy to work with, professional and we have amazing, unique wedding photos that we are super happy with.
KELLEE & MATT
Rob is a very professional photographer. I love how he was to the point and had everything lined up. He is very devoted to finding the perfect shot and won’t stop until he has it. There is no BS with this man. He has a plan and strives hard to achieve it. He has an awesome eye and can find something unique in every and any landscape or venue. From the moment he walked in to the moment he left, he was shooting away. I’d definitely recommend this guy for anyone and everyone looking for a creative unique take on weddings.
ERIN & ANTHONY
Rob August was a genuine joy to be around and an important asset to our pre-, during, and post-wedding experience. He listened intently to our wants and desires and made suggestions that were not only fantastic but unique as well. He avoided any and all cliches like they were the plague — a request of ours — and insured that our video had the effervescent flair we so desired. In all sincerity, we will forever be indebted to Rob for everything he did for us. The video he shot and subsequently edited is something we can use as a tool to relive our wedding day for the rest of our lives. And for that we can never repay him.
ANNIE & JARED
Our wedding was on a beautiful September day and took place under a tent on a very large estate. Rob’s photos certainly expressed just how gorgeous the day was! Rob and his team did a great job of finding the areas on the property that would produce the most beautiful photos. They captured me and my husband along with the vast landscape and nature surrounding us. Rob was very informative about photography right from the start. He took into account the timing of the ceremony in order to get the perfect shots and make sure the sun was not directly over us. I had no idea these circumstances could impact a picture. Rob and his team came fully prepared with all sorts of reflectors to block the sun. After receiving the wedding pictures, I got so many compliments on how amazing they turned out! Many of our guests made comments after the wedding such as, “Wow, your photographer and his team were all over the place getting pictures and working nonstop!” I had Rob create some albums as well, and the layouts were so nicely done! I am so happy with my choice to go with Rob. He did such a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him!!!
CAYCE & STEPHEN
Rob was a fantastic photographer. He was patient and professional and took his time to make sure he got all the shots we had requested for our wedding. When we got our batch of photos back from Rob, I was overwhelmed with how awesome they were. It was a special day for me and to be able to see it from my guests’ eyes made me very happy. My mother in law and I cried when we saw the photos–happy tears! We would definitely recommend Rob to our friends for their weddings in Austin.
JULIA & STEPHEN
Had him as my wedding photographer. Loved the photos. We were kind of camera shy, but he made us feel comfortable.
