Rob Barcroft was referred to us by a friend who recently got married and had him as her photographer. Her pictures turned out awesome despite having her photo plans change last minute due to rainy weather. Having a downtown wedding, my friend wanted to take Chicago photos and Rob knew just the places to take her without her getting soaked. Upon contacting Rob, we were able to meet in person right away to discuss pricing and album options. The packages are reasonably priced and very comprehensive. He was friendly and easy to talk to from the start. We arranged a time to do our engagement pics and they turned out awesome! The wedding pics were just as impressive & captured every aspect of the wedding - the details, portraits, candid moments. We took pics downtown as well, and Rob helped in directing the driver to where he should park/wait for our Millennium Park photo-op. He made everything so easy. We are so pleased with our photos and the album turned out amazing!

I am photographer myself so when selecting someone to do our wedding I was very particular about what I was looking for. When I saw Rob's work on his web page we actually changed the date to suit his availability. My wife trusted my judgment and was not disappointed. So what makes Rob different from the rest? Here are some answers. He works so hard. He is down on his knees, on a chair, swinging around a tree, he does whatever it takes to capture the moment. He worked like that all day long and stayed to the very last minute of the reception. He also has great technical skill. The lighting was difficult but he nailed the atmosphere. He shot a huge number of photos and he did this without anyone really noticing he was present - a great skill. But here is the best part. My sister reviewed the proof photos. She laughed, shouted, arhhed and cried. Rob captured the moments so perfectly stirring all the emotions - this is what great photography is all about. A+++ to Rob!!

Thanks, Jeff & Sydney Goble

I am giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob was AMAZING!Rob's prices/packages were very much in line with other photographers, but what ultimately sold us on Rob were 2 things.One, he was exceedingly calm and friendly.I could imagine spending my wedding day with him and not being driven crazy!Two, he said "it's your job to enjoy your wedding. It's my job to capture it." Sold! On the day, my limo was late so I arrived 45 min late.I was panicked, but Rob was totally steady. He knew which photos to take beforehand, which could wait until after, and kept a calm smile on his face the whole time! After the formal pics were taken, Rob never once pulled us or interrupted our enjoyment of the day. He was somehow everywhere we needed him to be without being in the way or changing the flow of the event. The photos are BEAUTIFUL and our friends/family have all commented both on their love of the photos but how great Rob himself was!



Guest Molly and John whose wedding was October 4, 2008...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob was truly one of our favorite people to work with throughout our wedding planning. We immediately knew that he went above and beyond when he offered to come to our home for our first meeting. Since that time, he has always been very responsive, patient, and helpful any time we have a question. He was a pleasure to spend time with on our wedding day, and our pictures are a reflection of that. He works so hard to capture beautiful shots. Our families and friends were also very impressed with how friendly, unobtrusive, and hardworking he was. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, and we had all of the proofs in less than two weeks! The quality of Rob's work is superb, and his kindness, responsiveness, and turnaround time are also exceptional.



Guest Jane and Todd, Chicago whose wedding was 9/20/08...

Hiring Rob is undeniably the best decision we made with respect to our wedding plans. He is a professional in all respects and an incredibly nice person with whom to work. His price points are comparable with most photographers but his work is leagues above most others we have seen. His work comes out to be true art. We know that our wedding pictures will be marvelous. He also shot engagement photos which we had made into our guest book. It was a hit! Guests thought his work was true art!



Guest Tina and Chris, Chicago whose wedding was July 12, 2008...

Rob was fabulous throughout the entire process. Unlike other photographers, there were no hidden costs once we met him to go over the final details. The day of the wedding, all of our guests were amazed at the number of pictures he took. Our friends and families are all thrilled with the photos. Within two months of the event, our album has already been ordered. Many of my friends have waited over a year for albums. Rob was extremely organized and on top of everything. We would recommend him for anyone interested in photo journalism style photos.



Guest Stephanie Laginess whose wedding was 6/28/08...

After we had our first meeting with Rob Barcroft we knew we had found our photographer. What really impressed us was how much time he took listening to us to make sure that he shared our vision for the wedding. After our wedding we got so many compliments on our photographer. My dad said that he was working so hard the whole night, but the funny thing was he is so unobtrusive that half the time I didn't even know he was taking pictures. At around 11:00 I thanked him for everything and told him he could go. About 10 minutes later the DJ played a really good song and so people swarmed the dance floor, Rob must have seen this happen and recognizing the great photo opportunity he came back in to shoot more pictures. Our proofs have since come back and they are beautiful! Clearly for Rob being a photographer is more than just a job, it is his passion and we are so happy that he could share his talent with us for one of the most important days of our lives.

Rob Barcroft is an amazing photographer and I would recommend him to all future brides. He did an exceptional job with our engagement and wedding photos. The time and energy spent on our wedding was wonderful and we felt he cared about our special day. He has created awesome memories that will last forever.



Guest Ray and Lauren, Mount Prospect whose wedding was April 12, 2008...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

We decided that this was one of the most important decisions for our wedding. When we first met with Rob, he came to us, was so nice and we could immediately feel how passionate he is about photography. We had a major expense right after we booked him, but he reserved our date anyway and trusted that we would send our first payment when we could. We had to book and cancel our engagement session on short notice twice, but he never led on that he was annoying or inconvenienced. When we finally met up, Rob arrived early to scope out our location. Everything outside was dead, but Rob found so many great backgrounds. Every single picture was artistic and amazing. At the wedding, I had so many guests compliment Rob. It was a 12-hour day, but he remained polite, patient & did anything to get a great shot. We recently saw our pictures and I'm so impressed...He captured EVERYTHING. I'm so glad, he really knows his job and does it with a smile on his face.



Guest John and Julee, Park Ridge, IL whose wedding was December 16, 2007...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

RHB is a fantastic company! He lives very close to our venue, but far from our home, and was willing to meet us anywhere we liked. We settled on a meeting place halfway between us and him. He was there before us, and was prepared to show us his work right away. He is friendly, courteous, and most importantly, non- obtrusive on the wedding day. His prices are way too low for his outstanding work! I loved that he had many album options to work with. He and his assistant for the day were fantastic. Our guests were thoroughly impressed with both of them, and even more impressed with the beautiful photographs. I would recommend RHB to everyone and anyone getting married in the Chicagoland area!



Guest Joe and Lauren, Chicago whose wedding was November 11, 2007...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

From our initial phone call Rob Barcroft (RHB Photography) was one of the best vendors we worked with throughout wedding planning! He has perfected the balance of a traditional photographer and photojournalist. He is creative, professional, and timely in all his work. Our families, friends, and we are more than pleased with our engagement and wedding pictures. We could not have asked for a better experience!



Guest stephanie and Chris whose wedding was 11/17/07...

Rob was excellent!! He went above and beyond my expectations. The quality of the pictures was wonderful. I love his journalistic style and he was able to capture our wedding as it happened. When I looked at the proofs, it brought back a flood of emotions from that day. We can't wait to get our final album!



Guest Christine & Mike, Chicago whose wedding was October 20, 2007...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

If I had to do it all over again, I’d still choose Rob Barcroft from RHB Photography. Upon meeting Rob, not only did I love the samples of his work, I immediately felt that his genuine demeanor and concern about what my husband and I wanted to capture on our special day was real. I had been in weddings before and always felt the presence of the photographer and was concerned that at my own wedding, I would feel a photographer even more. But even as the bride, I never felt Rob’s presence. Upon returning from our honeymoon and seeing the photos for the first time, we were amazed. Rob photographed so many unique moments! His eye for the lighting and background was amazing. I was in all the same places he was and didn’t see the magic he managed to capture on film. I have looked at our wedding photos everyday and I have many friends who are getting married in the near future and will be recommending RHB Photography to all of them!

Wow! We are beyond thrilled with Rob's work!!! He came to us after shooting a good friend's wedding last year and we were immediately drawn to how friendly and accommodating he was. In the midst of crazy wedding planning, having a vendor agree to come to meet YOU was such a treat. He truly listened to what we had to say and what we were looking for with our photos. For the wedding day, he went above and beyond to get all of the shots. He worked a very long day and was everywhere getting shots -without being seen. Our pictures were online to proof just TWO weeks after the wedding - what a treat to come home from our honeymoon and see our photos!! And they were BEAUTIFUL. Candid, elegant, beautiful. I've had praise pouring in from friends and family after looking at the photos... they all say they are the best they have ever seen. We're thrilled and excited to get started on the album process! We're not sure how we will choose.. there are too many great shots!!



Guest Melissa and Ferdinand, Sept. 2005 whose wedding was September 24,2005...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

I can't say enough about Rob and how pleased we were (and still are) with his outstanding work! From our first meeting and throughout the whole process he was professional, honest, and well-organized. Rob captured every moment that we wanted to remember and every moment that we didn't know happened. He allowed us and our guests to enjoy our celebration without being intrusive...a true gem!! He is someone we really enjoyed working with and will recommend him to anyone in need of a fantastic photographer.



Guest April, Chicago whose wedding was June 9,2007...
I am giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob did a beautiful job with our photographs! We got a ton of compliments, and most importantly, he captured our once-in-a-lifetime day perfectly. We have a ton of shots, and he stayed up until the end. I can't say enough good things about his work and would strongly recommend him for engagement portraits as well.



Guest Rebecca and Bill whose wedding was 4/8/06...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob was very helpful during the planning process and on the day of the wedding. Rob and his assistant were able to capture the expressions and feelings during the preparations, ceremony and reception and we didnt even realize that they were around. I especially love that we have so many great close up shots during the ceremony. I just havent seen that in other peoples albums. I was very pleased with how the photography and album turned out and I would highly recommend RHB Photography. Thanks for doing a great job.



Guest Arlene and Brian whose wedding was September 30, 2006...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob was far and away our favorite vendor of the wedding. From our initial planning meetings to the engagement photo session, and from the wedding day through the album design, RHB Photography and he do everything possible to meet your expectations. Our experience on the day of the wedding is exactly the same as what others have posted. Wed also recommend shooting an engagement session with him as well. He photographed us around River North in downtown Chicago and at the museum campus, making great use of lighting and scenery. He was patient and spent an incredible amount of time with us and only stopped because we simply couldnt smile anymore! His integrity and honesty are first class. His portfolio and website speak for themselves. We were captured by the caliber of photography, the impeccable service, and by Rob's warm personality, and continue to highly recommend him to those in need of photography services!



Guest Scott and Jennifer, New York City whose wedding was September 16, 2005...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Upon meeting Rob, we immediately loved his friendly, laid back personality. He has significant experience in wedding photography, but we also appreciated his earlier photo journalism career. This helped him tell a story with a photo that we wouldn't necessarily see otherwise. Rob was happy to work with us despite the long distance planning and gladly met us whenever we were in town. He was incredibly professional -- all the things one would expect such as promptness, ease of communication, solid business practices, accommodating, etc. During the event itself, we didn't even notice Rob or his assistant were there sometimes. We viewed this as a huge positive as we've been to other weddings where you see the photographer everywhere you look. Finally, we loved his finished work. Afterwards, we had almost 800 photographs to choose from and they were all great. It was near impossible to narrow down our favorites for the album. We highly recommend Rob.

I am Dean Neilson's Mom. I sat down with the album to look through it for the first time, and I want you to know that I was so deeply touched that I laughed and I cried, just going through the beautiful pages of memories that you created for us. I want you to know that their album most definitely captures all of the fun, all of the laughter, all of the life, and all of the love of Dean & Kim's wedding "marathon". I really do believe that God put you on this earth for the purpose of bringing ultimate joy to others, by being able to present others with the ultimate gift of personalized beauty in a book of breathtaking moments! We are blessed to have had you with us for their journey, and even more thankful that you became a new friend in the glorious process. Again, thank you for a work of genius!

We cannot say enough great things about Robert Barcroft. He was wonderful to work with all throughout the time leading up to the wedding, the day of, and then after the wedding. The day of the wedding he made everyone feel so comfortable. He is the type of person to have around on the day of your wedding because he is so calm, accomodating, and hardworking. When we got back from our honeymoon and saw the pictures we were amazed! They were wonderful! We have had so many compliments on our pictures. I would highly recommend Rob! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer.



Guest Richard and Dawn, Elk Grove Village whose wedding was 10-06-06...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

RHB Photography was recommended to us by a colegue of mine who had recently been married and had a wonderful experience with Rob Barcroft and his team. We were early in our process of wedding planning and RHB was by far an easy choice and one that we did not second guess. Rob Barcroft met with us and we knew at that moment that he would be our photographer. He is exceptional with his work, he genuinely cares about your occasion and never lets you feel as if your just another client. During the entire day he and his assistant were amazing, you never even knew they were there, and the photojournalistic quality of the photographs told our story. Even during the album selection and print selection processes, long after our wedding, Rob met with us at our home and was there for all of our questions and revisons and never failed to impress. I would highly recommend RHB Photography to anyone wishing to have a wonderful experience with a complete professional and a caring individual.



Guest TL whose wedding was July 29, 2005...
I am giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

We chose our wedding photographer, Rob Barcroft, based on a few and very important qualities we saw when we first met him: his calm, flexible, and pesonable demeanor; his extroardinary talent for taking candid photographs thus capturing many of the most special moments that day; his ability to work with a variety of personalities; and his passion for photography. Now that our day has come and gone - all we have left are our photographs and we could not be any more grateful for the amazing work he did. He worked with the bridal party as well as our families with ease and comfort; for twelve hours - he was "on" - always looking to capture the right moment for us; and not once did we ever feel pressured, pushed, or uncomfortable by him - in fact we felt more comfortable working with him than any other vendor we hired. To this day, I have recommended Rob's services to friends and family who are getting married so that they can experience Rob's stupendous talent and work.



Guest Kim and Dean, Chicago whose wedding was September 2, 2006...
We are giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

Rob Barcroft combines superior service with award winning photography and one of a kind album designs that are unmatched by any other in the field. The pictures were the most important part of our three-day wedding event, because in the end, they were all we had for a visual of such a significant day in our lives. With that being said, my family researched photographers for months in advance before finding Rob. There are so many things that make Rob exceptional: First is convenience, he came to us for all our meetings rather than us traveling to a studio. This gave Rob an opportunity to get to know us on a more personal level in the comfort of our home. His extreme knowledge combines what will work and what you are looking for on your wedding day. I would say Rob's biggest asset, in a photojournalistic style, is catching moments. When no one else may be looking, Rob finds the beauty and captures it. His unique shots and angels show off his superior artistic abilities. His patience and direction makes the day flow seamlessly minimizing all stress. He was with our group from the Rehearsal, through the 12-hour wedding traveling all over the city of Chicago, and the post-wedding Cubs Baseball Game party. He was never invasive, always friendly and very professional. In the end our whole group felt like he was one of the family. I just received our Wedding Album and it far exceeded our expectations. Friends and Family have all said it is the best photography and album work they have ever seen. If you want a photographer who is honest, affordable, provides the highest quality pictures with a unique style - choose Robert Barcroft. You won't be disappointed!



Guest Kevin and Kathy, Aurora whose wedding was 10/28/2005...

I would recommend Rob and his associates to anyone. We got exactly what we wanted out of our photo services and wouldn't have changed anything. Rob and his team were very professional, understanding, and willing to go that extra yard to make sure our day was fully documented by pictures. His flexibility in meeting w/ us and providing us w/ his expert opinion gave us the comfort we were looking for in someone to handle the job accordingly.



Guest Leslie and Will, Chicago whose wedding was 8/27/06...

Rob and his assistant caught all of our special moments beautifully without once disrupting the flow of events. We would recommend him to anyone, and already have!



Guest EPC, Manhattan whose wedding was August 6, 2005...
I am giving RHB Photography by Rob Barcroft 5.0because...

From the first meeting I could tell right away that Rob was a true professional. He even told me the questions that I should be asking him and advised me to see other photographers before making my decision. But I didn't have to do that because I was completely blown away with his portfolio and his level of customer service. He and two other photographers photographed my wedding for 12 hours and were as energetic at the end as at the start. He captured every emotion, people laughing, crying, being funny--candid and photojournalism styles. The turnaround for the proofs and the album layouts were super quick. I had my album done before my friend who was married before me! His pricing is extremely competitive, in fact I seriously think he underprices himself, which I suspect he does because he enjoys covering weddings and wants to make himself available to as many brides as possible rather than only thinking about how he can make the most money. I don't live in Illinois and he was extremely flexible in working with me--for example, I couldn't fly in to do an engagement shoot which was part of the package so he gave me a credit to get more photos. Not all photographers will do that. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone---you will not be disappointed!



Guest MH whose wedding was May 2005...

Rob was great to work with--very easygoing, accommodating and punctual (he even arrived early). We have had many compliments on both his work and the way he carried himself on the day of our wedding. He shows a true concern that the bride and groom have the best day possible and could not have been more unobtrusive in his work. He did a great job capturing some of the most emotional moments beautifully. The shots that were not posed turned out the best. His team was a huge help putting together our album and it looks great.
