What Our Clients Say

I had my second session with Rob yesterday....

I had my second session with Rob yesterday. It was a quick 15 minute session for one headshot. I confessed to rob that I had lost the photos he had done before due to computer issues. He sent them to me again within minutes of me leaving the session. He is always so quick to deliver.

My partner and I could not have asked...

My partner and I could not have asked for a better experience when we chose rob to shoot us for our 4 year anniversary. His professionalism is unmatched, his talent stands alone and his ability to make his customers feel comfortable in front of a camera is the best. We could not ask for a better experience, and the quality of his work is flawless. We highly recommend Modern Aperture to anyone looking to have photos taken for any and all occasions.

I needed professional photos for my business website...

I needed professional photos for my business website and shopped around for a photographer in the area. After reviewing several options I really liked Rob's sample photos and his reasonable pricing. Rob returned my call promptly and was able to fit me in quickly in order to accomodate my schedule. I was very comfortable working with Rob. He makes you feel at ease and smile A LOT (which I thought would be difficult and forced) and he got some amazing shots. I was able to choose the photos I was most interested in and then Rob "doctored" them up and sent me the final product within a few days. Now they're up on the world wide inter web AND mom approved! I will definitely see you in the future for more photos. Thanks, Rob!
