About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I follow in the footsteps of my late Grandmother, a small town wedding/portrait photographer, who believed in attention to detail, technical quality, and placing the customer's needs or desires before anything else. For me, photography became a lifetime interest-turned-profession. As a small business owner, I am able to provide extra services, products, and personal experiences that larger studios cannot. I am quite good at creating a tense-free, relaxed environment where we can create photographs that the client is proud of. Notable points of my career: Photographer for Wine Tasting ceremony Temp work with a Youth Sports League Photography Company Photographer for local college LPN pinning ceremony. Photographer for church's 125th anniversary that included ~300 people and representation from the mayor’s office including local police staff. Hired by a New York based company as a “Lifestyle” photographer. This includes headshots and portraits. I am the local area on-location photographer for their top level packages. Began photographing events at a local private school. Many of my photographs were used in their yearbook. I was offered gallery space with Artaissance, a division of Jarson-Juhl. My book, “Changed Within, Reflections of a Journey”, published. It is available at several book stores including Barnes and Noble. In 2010 I was offered space with Visionlight Photographic Art Gallery, a premier fine art gallery. I schooled with the New York Institute of Photography to complete the Professional Photography Course and started working professionally in 2010. My landscape work has been on display at several locations including the former Washington Imaging Services, LLC at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, WA.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy meeting and working with people. It is such a success to create a photograph and environment that the client is proud of and excited to be part of.

    Rob photographed my Mother's 60th Birthday party. He was prompt and began taking photos right away. He did exactly what was asked (posed group photos and some candid). He was nice and easy to work with. I would recommend his services.

    Rob did a fabulous job capturing Charter College's 2016 graduation ceremony. From the initial pricing and booking to the turn around time for photos Rob was prompt, professional, and extremely accommodating. He even took a test photo to make sure lighting and placement were optimal before the ceremony. Our grads and their families are thrilled to have these memories. Would highly recommend him for any event large or small. Thank you Rob for your wonderful work!

    I could not be any more happier with the product. I know it can be challenging working with over 30 something ladies and one gentleman but the pictures truly speak for themselves. Thank you again for capturing such an important moment in our lives.

He was professional and handled over 300 of our guest with poise, while capturing their beautiful essence on camera. We thank you for doing such a wonderful job in helping to make our historic event a success!

    Rob did a solid shoot for our wedding. I didn't get to see him do the full meal deal because we were on a budget, but what he did was great. He was on time and took care of every detail. I was never worried he would do a great job.
  • Morgan E. Oct 31, 2015
    Rob Pleas is professional, and fun. He does a great job at finding out what sort of photos you hope to create, and makes them reality. He is punctual, creative, and an overall terrific photographer. I highly recommend him!
  • Jessica A. Oct 30, 2015
    Rob has photographed pictures of my kids several times over the years. We have been very pleased by the quality of his work and also how fun and easy Rob was to work with. Rob was great with my kids...they loved him and easily engaged with him, enabling him to capture great expressions. He was creative with his use of backgrounds...able to create a beautiful picture even with what would seem like little to work with. We would highly recommend him and use him again anytime. He does great work.
  • Marie P. Oct 30, 2015
    Rob was my wedding photographer and I couldn't have been happier. We created a list of shots/poses so during the busy moments he kept on track ensuring I'd get all the important photos captured. Even with a delay due to a late mother of the bride, he stayed focused and kept on track with groom photos. His ability to capture candid moments created some of my favorite photos. I would recommend him to anyone!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
No. I quote each project individually. Each customer is different. Each project is different and therefore, each project deserves individual attention when creating a custom quote.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I completed the professional course with the New York Institute of Photography. I continually study with individual instruction or classes from continuing education companies. I began working professionally in 2010.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My Grandmother was a huge influence on me. She was a portrait/wedding photographer for 40+ years in a small town. I grew up with cameras always nearby and had access to studio equipment early on. I have now followed in her footsteps.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My customers include children, a private school, a software company, a photography magazine, a manufacturing trade magazine, weddings, memorial services, and other events. I am a contributing landscape photographer for a large framing company and enjoy gallery representation from them as well as from a fine art company.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Locally, the county government was interested in developing a 160 acre parcel of undeveloped land used by families who bike, walk, and ride horses. I was asked by a third party to photograph all of the bird species living in that area, to ensure there were no serious environmental impacts if the area was developed.
