What is your style and approach?
I photograph with a relaxed style, but doesn’t everyone say that these days? What does that mean anyway? It means I am unobtrusive, observant and respectful. I stand where I am needed, but stay out of the way whenever possible. And I see everything, things you don’t, because you are caught in the whirlwind of the day. I see – and capture – the moments of love, partnership and emotions that are what your wedding are all about. I let things happen, and step in with kindness and respect to lightly orchestrate small moments to make sure your images are fantastic. Because, even when I am recording the day, it doesn’t hurt to create a heightened version of your wedding images
How long does it take to receive my images?
Typically you receive your processed images within a month of your wedding - but times may vary depending on the time of the year and will be communicated well in advance.
Do you work alone?
I have used assistants in the past when conditions called for it – not every event needs two photographers of course. I have a regular photographer I work with now though and feel it offers more complete coverage, as well as a different viewpoint. As always, contact me and we can discuss the approach that works best for your wedding.
What other services do you provide?
I offer all of the typical wedding services, from engagement and bridal portrait sessions (included in some packages), but also rehearsal dinner coverage, day-after sessions, family portraits to corporate headshots. Ideally, a wedding is just the beginning of lifetime memories captured by Robert Schnell Photography. Engagement sessions are a wonderful time for us to get together in a casual setting. You get great images of the two of you together, and you also see what it’s like to be photographed by me. Like hair and makeup, this is a nice trail run for your wedding day.
Do you travel, or what areas do you cover?
Being based out of Richmond provides a wonderfully central location to start from. I have photographed weddings from Philadelphia to South Carolina, so Charlottesville, Washington DC or Virginia Beach are convenient locations for travel. Essentially, if you want my photography, I will happily travel where I am needed.
Do you offer other products besides albums?
A wonderful question! In these days where most modern clients expect to get their wedding image files, it seems as if many have lost sight that we are creating memories – something to be passed down to your children, and to simply showcase in your home; rather than live on a disc in your drawer. To that end, I offer a variety of print options. From press printed cards, framed or canvas prints, to the finest custom made albums of course. I have samples you can see at our first meeting.
