  • Bobby was so much fun to work with and was very helpful in picking shoot locations. My Fiancé and I are not big photo people but would definitely do a shoot again with Bobby. The shoot locations were beautiful and the photos came out amazing! We highly recommended.

  • What an epic experience! Bobby made us feel comfortable to be ourselves and captured genuine memories of our proposal. I was hesitant to do our engagement photos and the proposal together. However, Bobby reacted quickly in order to achieve many looks, moods, and special moments. Highly recommend for epic photos that are outside of the box. The styling is far superior in comparison to all the other cookie cutter photographers. Would recommend!

  • Bobby did a great job photographing our backyard elopement. We had to postpone the engagement session a few times (for weather and Covid related reasons) and he was super flexible and laid back about the changes, which we really appreciated. We were so glad we did the engagement session since we got a sense of his style and some amazing photos. The photos of our wedding were wonderful, despite somewhat harsh lighting in our backyard, and he did a great job capturing candid moments of our small family gathering.

  • We had to change our plans a couple times due to the global pandemic and our timeline gave us 2 weeks to find a photographer. I reached out to Bobby and he replied promptly saying he was available for our date. We spoke with Bobby on the phone a week before to go over the event and our expectations, he was very flexible and easy to talk to. We had a small gathering of friends and family and Bobby captured the day perfectly! All our friends and family love the photos and so do we! It was our first time being professionally photographed and he gave guidence but also captured all the organic moments inbetween. Thank you for the memories!

  • We knew right off the bat that Bobby was going to be the best photographer for our wedding. As soon as you talk to him on the phone you can tell just how easy going and hilarious he is, and that is made EVEN more clear when you meet him in person. His photography speaks for itself with how incredibly beautiful his photos are. Each one looks like it was pulled from a magazine. The weekend we wanted to take our engagement photos ended up being a huge storm in Santa Cruz but Bobby picked the gap in the storm to try to get our photos in, and they turned out absolutely incredible. Having him as our wedding photographer was like having an old friend at our wedding. I cannot even express in words what a huge difference it makes to have such an amazing photographer that you vibe with for your wedding, and it makes the photos look so natural. The wedding day is already stressful enough and not having to worry about the photographer or the photos was such a blessing. We prioritized our wedding p... Read more

  • I highly recommend Bobby to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! Bobby was so flexible with our changing plans. We had planned a May 30th wedding and changed it to a small beach ceremony June 1st due to Covid. Bobby was so supportive and easygoing about the change of date and location and really made us feel comfortable. He took beautiful photos of the ceremony, nice family photos, and then went with my husband and me to another beach setting for more photos of the two of us which turned out amazing! We are so happy with the way they came out and we're so glad to have these photos of our special day. Working with Bobby was the best experience and his flexibility made our day stress-free.

  • Bobbie made my husband and I so comfortable and delivered even better photos than imagined! We had a little mishap with timing but he was so easy-going and willing to work with us. I would recommend Bobbie without hesitation to anyone and everyone that needs a photographer. We chose him for our small elopement and it was everything we could have ever imagined. If you want a photographer that really brings the magic and is able to make you feel comfortable, this is it for you!

  • Amazing, amazing, amazing!!! Bobby was wonderful from the get-go, right from when we asked for a quotation for a pre-wedding shoot + wedding/reception shoot. He gave us sound advice to separate the 2 shoots, provided us with a bunch of ideas, sample photos, and reference points so that we could pick the kind of venue/vibe we liked best for our pre-wedding/elopement shoot, then brought us to a gorgeous stretch of untouched beach during sunset for it. Being somewhat awkward individuals, Bobby made us feel so comfortable throughout the shoot with minimal directing, and captured so many beautiful moments of us. Ditto for our actual wedding shoot a couple weeks after at La Playa Carmel - He was professional, so friendly, and took so many candid shots that we absolutely LOVED. Bobby killed it for us and we're so grateful to have found him. If there's one thing you need to do for your special day(s), you need to hire Bobby as your photographer!!

  • Bobby was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Planning a wedding is never going to be stress free, but he made sure that he and his team never added any to the process. His portfolio likely speaks better to his artistic abilities and technical skills as a photographer than a written review ever will, but we were absolutely thrilled with the results from both our wedding and the rehearsal dinner! His disarming demeanor brings a genuine sense of calm to a day that will undoubtedly be busy, and his nack for putting people at ease shines through in his work - I honestly can’t believe how relaxed, natural and happy some of these shots came out as we scrambled to put on our dream wedding. We couldn’t recommend him more highly, both for wedding and just general portrait and lifestyle photography as well. My sister ended up hiring him for a family photoshoot because she liked him so much, and her shots came out beautiful!

  • Bobby was amazing to work with from the very start! We were referred by a friend and after taking a look at his portfolio, Bobby became our first choice. I was blown away by how he communicated through email, it was easy to get a feel for what kind of person he is and what it would be like to work with him. Walking through the contract and communicating was easy, Bobby's enthusiasm is infectious. We did an engagement shoot and it totally blew out minds! Bobby's easy going attitude put us at ease and we ended up having a lot of fun, not to mention the photos were amazing. We knew then that we definitely hired the right person to shoot our wedding. Our wedding photos turned out incredible! Bobby really captured the important moments but also caught a lot of candid moments as well. 100% would hire Bobby again for any special occasion.

  • We hired Bobby as our photographer for our wedding this October (2019) in the Santa Cruz mountains. From the first few emails we exchanged back in Feb he's immediately felt like a friend, not only easy but delightful to communicate and work with. We had our engagement shoot with him in May (I highly recommend doing this if you're feeling at all awkward about being photographed like my fiancee and I were, put us right at ease) and it was just the best experience-- totally fun and a great bonding moment for my fiancee and me. I went into the engagement shoot feeling that as long as it broke the ice for us and we got 1 or 2 usable pictures it would be a success. The outcome was 100 times better than my expectations. It's been hard to choose which engagement pictures to use for all our wedding invites/materials and associated events because there are so many gorgeous shots to choose from. Neither of us are exactly fitness models, but he made us look awesome! I feel really really lucky we f... Read more

  • They say a picture is worth a thousand words; use the Deep Light Company for your wedding and Bobby will teach you a picture is worth ten thousand words! We recently received our pictures back and could not have been happier. Working with Bobby is a breeze; he is flexible, fun, and really knows how to work a camera. We decided to have our wedding at my family property and I’ve never seen it in the way he was able to capture it. He captured the true beauty of the moment and the property. Because of Bobby and the Deep light Company we will forever have these wonderful photos to remind us of how perfect our day truly was!!! Thank you so much Bobby :) do yourself a favor and allow Bobby to document one of the biggest days of your life the best way possible. It was a better experience than we could have ever imagined. Thanks again Bobby!

  • Bobby was great. Super responsive and flexible. Great candid shots. He’s not afraid to get out in the dance floor to get those great shots either. He is also very aware of time and was able to remind us, which is must needed in your wedding day. Not cheesy at all. His ability to capture those intimate moments is a true gift. Great price for such good quality. He’s open to ideas and has some really great suggestions. You won’t be disappointed.

  • Bobby was absolutely wonderful to work with. He made both my husband and myself feel comfortable and accommodated everything we asked for. He was professional and he made the whole process easy and fun. Regarding our actual photos, we were thrilled. As my husband keeps saying, "It looks like these belong in a magazine!" I couldn't be happier.
