What is your style and approach?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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.
