An easy going, natural style with a blend of candids, many photojournalism style images and beautiful classic, well crafted scenic portraits.
There are ONLY three ways to photograph a wedding:
Book a budget photographer who has a nice camera, little experience (but great Instagram posts!) and expect great results...'nuf said.
Hire a high priced big name professional who will no doubt create some amazing & artistic images but the whole day becomes more about them, the production, the equipment and assistants and scheduling...moreso about that then your experience...
Hire a photographer with decades of hardened experiences and skills. Someone who works with you. Makes the day enjoyable. Has the ability, because of the thousands of photography gigs shot, to assess, consult and create amazing creative images- classic, creative and natural- and deliver that without much of the hassles that potentially comes with other photographers. This is how I describe myself. (Excuse the pompousness :)...)

Is there a better way to remember your wedding? (watch my "How I like to shoot weddings" video below)
“Rob, I don’t even know where to start! Thank you so so so so much for being part of our day. You were incredible! I checked out your blog today and based on what I saw…I can’t even begin to imagine how amazing the rest of our pics are going to be! We are so excited. Family and friends can’t stop raving about the pics you have posted and have been making comments like “these pictures look like they could be in vogue…”! Not only are we grateful for the beautiful photos we will be receiving from you, we can’t express enough how much we appreciate your cool approach and seamless presence. You made the picture taking process very enjoyable…even for the boys! You undoubtedly went far above and beyond on our day and we want you to know that each and every extra ounce of effort and time you gave to us is sincerely appreciated. Thank you again…….

Rob, Words cannot describe how “amazing” you are. The photos, the DVD Wedding Video! You didn’t only capture beautiful photography, you captured the moments. There is warmth and emotion in every picture. Not only are you creative and think of interesting shots but you were able to capture Jason and Janelle’s personality, heart and emotion on their wedding day. We couldn’t be happier! You are truly unique and talented. We thank you for doing your part in creating a very magical day for our son and his beautiful bride. The Marier’s

Okay, last one:
"Dear Rob and Tina, Sorry this has taken me so long to write. I would just like to thank you for the truly amazing job that Rob did on our wedding. The pictures are truly unique and capture the essence of our special day. Many people who could not attend the wedding have remarked that the pictures make them feel as if they were there. Rob, you remembered the little details that I had mentioned to you and made sure you captured those extra important shoots. You made our whole bridal party feel comfortable with your none intrusive and relaxed style. Your style gave us a wide range of pictures that captured the candid moments that meant the most to us. Tina, I would like to thank you for always being there to answer any question I had. Having you be so supportive made me feel 100% comfortable that I made the right decision in choosing Westmount. Again thank you for being there for before, on and after our wedding day, you have created visual memories that will last a lifetime. Kristin and David Racicot, June 27th 2009"
"Hi Rob and Tina. We recently had the opportunity to take a peek at Helena's wedding album before she sees it and would like to congratulate you on creating a wonderful storybook. The artistic style, formatting, and presentation are amazing. Aside from Helena's wedding, our family has been very fortunate to have a collection of photographs that capture unique looks, heartbreaking smiles and tender connections. The pictures we have of our family throughout the years have become priceless and will undoubtedly be passed from our generation to the next. We are thankfull for your talents and appreciate your expertise in capturing the spirit of people who mean most to us..sincerely, James and Bernadette"
"I can't tell you how excited I was to see the pictures. Everyone that has viewed the DVD has absolutely loved it. My sister in law said watching it made her feel like she was with us the entire day and that she didn't miss a thing. Rob and his assistant were great. Totally professional and a lot of fun to work with. I would definitely recommend Westmount Photography to anyone geting married, Jo-Ann Bianchini"
"Rob,Thank you for making our day special and I'm happy that you were part of it. You truly are an amazing photographer...we appreciate everything that you have done. You made picture taking fun and enjoyable! Your sense of style, ease and patience was absolutely incredible. Throughout the day I was given many compliments to the "perfect photographer"...so again, we can not express how grateful and thankful we are. I went on the blog today and saw some of the pictures...I could not believe my eyes! Rob, you do amazing work and we are excited to see all the pictures!! Thank You, Sincerely, Cara & Sylvain"
"Rob and Tina, I just feel I should take a few moments to let you know how pleased we are with ourselves that we chose Westmount Photography for Katie and Troy’s special day. There are no words to express fully how happy we are the pictures and DVD you made of Katie and Troy’s wedding day. I cannot stop watching it. Most special are all the candid moments forever captured – they are some of my absolute favourites. Rob you have a gift not only for your craft, but for your ability to set everyone at ease during the shoots. This shows in each and every photo. The time you spent at the house before the wedding was most enjoyable and relaxing for everyone involved. You and your crew (which included your talented daughter) were most professional and moved quickly through the shots. It was a real joy having all of you in our home for that time. You left a lasting favourable impression on all our guests – I can’t tell you how many came up to us and commented on what a “great guy” you are. We now have a legacy of our own wedding pictures you took for us 25 years ago and those of my daughter and new son-in-law’s. Bruce and I want to have a portrait done soon to mark our 25th wedding anniversary and you know that Westmount Photography will be our preferred studio for this and all future shoots. Thanks for the memories……………. Sharon Dixon" Mother of the bride...
From Storey Wilkins, a Toronto photographer who referred the Larcher's to me for their wedding: "Just a quick and over due thank you. Last summer you recommended Rob from Westmount photography to me for my October 9 wedding. He surpassed our expectations. He was FANTABULOUS!!! Everything that we wanted. We can't thank you enough! Hope things are great with you and your business. The Larchers "
