Most couples book us primarily for our award-winning photojournalism. As much as we love a killer portrait, those tender moments fly by on a wedding day. For us, not much beats the thrill of documenting a genuine moment well. Whether it’s a big exit or a brief exchange, we live for the real shit.
Professional & Easygoing
If you read reviews from past clients, nearly every one references our professionalism. We don’t make wedding days about us. We spend most of a wedding day blending into the background, but we are also super comfortable herding distracted family members for formal portraits.
After over ten years of photographing weddings as a full time team, we’ve developed an intuition for predicting moments and preparing for anything. We’ve seen a lot in those 500 weddings, and as a result feel comfortable making great images in any situation!

We couldn't be happier with the Oberports. They were incredibly responsive both in planning and during the day. We had a huge snafu with our ceremony (officiant did not show up), and it hung like a black cloud in the weeks after the wedding. Then they sent along our wedding slideshow and, I was overwhelmed. I could finally see the day as I had wanted it to be. They have an incredible gift. It's like their lens knew us, despite meeting for the first time on the morning of the wedding. They captured so many gestures and faces and moments of our family that are so etched in my bones.
The Oberports are as good as it gets! After working in the wedding industry, I've seen the work of many talented photographers. However, for years I've loved the way Bobby and Emily capture emotion! When it came time to make the decision for our big day, they were at the top of my list. Our photos are incredible and capture every emotion and every moment perfectly. In addition to wonderful work, they were incredible at blending into the moments, but also taking control to keep the process moving along. And they did this all while making everyone feel comfortable and natural. Photography was a big part of the day for us and we couldn't be more thankful we chose the Oberports!
What I learned throughout the whole process with Emily & Bobby is that their professionalism is much more than just a beautiful end product. Their experience and personalities made the formal photos fun and easy. They have a way of putting everyone at ease, which had a very calming influence on many of us before the ceremony when nervous energy was flying. Basically, they are wedding whisperers as well as artists. Logistics such as booking, payment, and ordering was all clear, professional and seamlessly done online.
The Oberports are top notch at their craft. They were great to work with and gave us so many amazing images of both our engagement and wedding. They were totally flexible on our slightly hap-hazard order of events, helped to coordinate, and even lent me and my bridesmaids sunscreen on our unseasonably hot wedding day. Weddings are stressful and when looking for vendors, you definitely want ones that go the extra mile. The Oberports do that. Emily, Bobby, and their photos were loved by all of our family and friends and, most importantly, my hard-to-please husband. Great people and great service. Highly recommended!
It doesn't get any better than Bobby and Emily. Hands down, they were our greatest investment when it came to our engagement and wedding. We didn't even realize there were two photographers at our reception, it felt as if two more friends were there. Only difference, these two friends gave us the most beautiful photographs and memories for years to come. They are knowledgable, easy going, experienced, talented, and a BLAST to spend your time with! The love, energy, and excitement they captured in our photos could not have been done any better, period.

OUR APPROACH TO COVID-19
Hey! Did you hear there's a pandemic going on? Seriously though, we know that coronavirus/COVID-19 has been a nightmare for everyone, but it's important that we let you know we're taking it seriously. The safety of you and your loved ones is our highest priority. At all of our wedding events we are practicing social distancing and wearing masks. Our dancefloor coverage has been modified to account for safe distancing using longer lenses. When we aren't shooting weddings we're maintaining good habits at home-- we don't eat at restaurants and our quarantine bubble is extremely small (just the two of us). Our aim is to be healthy for your event and all the events after yours!
