I’m very lucky to be able to earn a living from doing something that I love; not just photography, but meeting great people and being involved in the biggest day of their lives. It’s a huge responsibility and one that I take very seriously – that’s not to say that we don’t have a lot of fun along the way though! From our first meeting together, until the time that I hand over your album, you will receive a first class level of service. This is what my clients say;
Oxfordshire is full of wedding photographers but none can match Rob's combination of artistic skill and brilliant customer service. He captured all of the important and meaningful moments of our wedding with flare and told the story of the day through beautifully composed photographs. To be honest, there were SO MANY great photos, it was very hard to narrow them down to a manageable number. Moreover, Rob understands how important it is to make the couple comfortable having their photos taken and does a pre-wedding shoot for several hours to achieve this. We loved the shot he took of us after an afternoon wandering around Oxford colleges. We can't sing Rob's praises enough and think that his wedding packages represent good value and excellent quality!

What can I say?An amazing photographer, Fabulous service, and just a generally good guy. We met Rob at a Wedding Fayre, and on chatting to him, and looking at examples of his work, we just knew that this was the photographer for us. From there, things got better and better. We went to meet with him at his house to discuss which package we wanted for our wedding. We were made to feel so so welcome by Rob and his lovely wife Becky. A month before the wedding, we met up for our pre wedding photo shoot. I have to say that this is a brilliant idea, as we got to know each other a bit more during this. Which meant that when it came to the wedding, we felt really relaxed with Rob, and his camera. I think this shows in the amazing photographs that we went to see a few days ago. The thing that I was really looking forward to, on returning from honeymoon, was going to Rob's house, and making the selections for our album. We had such a fabulous day. Again, Rob and Becky made us really welcome. They provided a very tasty lunch, complete with fizz. It was such a lovely way to round off the whole wedding experience. It is going to be a magnificent album, jam packed with memories of our day.
Thank you Thank you Thank you Rob and Becky. Amazing at what you do, and down right Fabulous People!!!!!!

David and I were so happy we booked Rob for our wedding. He was extremely professional and personable. He worked so hard all day and we were blown away with the quality of the pictures. We found it very difficult to pick the album pictures as there were just so many awesome shots. We are so pleased with the album, and have a great disk of pictures that tells the story of the whole day. Rob definitely goes above and beyond to give his clients a great result.

We chose Rob to photograph our wedding because of his relaxed and attentive style. He really cares about his clients, and got to know us before the wedding through a pre-wedding shoot, to understand how we photographed. This preparation really paid off, and our album is amazing….It was so hard to choose our favourites for the album, and the story of the day is beautifully represented through Rob’s careful page designs. Our wedding was so much fun, and Rob & Becky were a huge part of what made the day so very special.
Ros and Gary
We were initially drawn to Rob’s work because of the inventiveness and beauty of his photographs. The pre-wedding shoot was very enjoyable and we immediately felt in safe hands. On the day Rob was easy going and a pleasure to have around; we trusted fully that he would deliver an exceptional record of our wedding and he has done so.

When arranging a wedding ceremony in Sydney Australia, it was then suggested that a similar blessing ceremony should be held in the UK …..we needed a photographer to record the occasion and on recommendation we got in touch with Rob Wheal. … On the day of the blessing he took some great photos, never getting in the way and captured beautifully the love, happiness and sheer joy of the day. We have been left with some great photos to go with our memories. It was a fortunate day we were recommended to Rob and would gladly refer others to him in the future. If he could work with us from 12,500 miles away, think what he could do for you!

We were absolutely delighted with the photos we received from Rob – I’ve lost count of the friends who have told us how amazing our photos are! Rob’s photos are by the far the best quality of the bunch that we considered, but our decision was also influenced by the fact that whoever we chose would be sharing closely in the most important day of our lives. We found Rob very warm and friendly and we felt very comfortable with him photographing us – the pre-wedding shoot was a great way to get to know him better and to put any camera-shyness to rest. On the day Rob took photos covering each aspect of the day, ranging from beautiful candid shots to details to some group photos. We were invited to his home to choose the pictures for our album – while this took an afternoon, it was a much better experience and much more productive than simply being presented with a shoe box of snaps (which several of my friends have experienced).
Caroline and Ryan
From the moment we both meet Rob we knew he was perfect for capturing our wedding day the way we wanted. Everything from the initial meeting to the day we previewed the photos complete with a lovely lunch was great! On the big day itself Rob arrived with Becky, his wife, and made us both feel at ease, half the time we and most of the guests didn't know he was even there snapping away, along with Becky who also took some some lovely extra shots. The photos were a mix of beautiful details of the day, the formal pictures and some fantastic un-posed moments, we couldn't have asked for more! We also has a pre-wedding shoot around Woodstock which was great fun and good way of seeing how we would all work together on the day, this resulted in one of the pictures being blown up and used for guests to sign at the reception, a lovely touch which everyone loved. By choosing Rob you will not only get beautiful pictures you will get a professional, friendly service who made every guest feel special. Thank you you so much for capturing the moments that will make us smile for years to come.

Rob Wheal was the photographer at my daughters 21st Birthday Party, and I cannot find fault with any part of the service from the pre party meeting that we had to the after care service which included bringing the photographs in person. He fitted in well at the party, he was friendly but unobtrusive and took some wonderful, relaxed, artistic, natural shots that we are all delighted with. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob for any occasion, Thank You very much!
We were very pleased with Rob's services, and found him to be an integral part of our day. Rob has such a great eye for detail, and takes absolutely stunning photos. We wanted our photographer to be relaxed, and to take photos discreetly during the ceremony and reception, and Rob was more than happy to accommodate. We also felt that the afternoon spent at his home was a lovely way to look back on the day, and I also greatly valued his input when putting our album together. He recommended a few small changes that I think really pulled everything together nicely, and he is of course qualified to provide helpful input. It's important to understand the pricing structure of any photographer, and I feel that Rob was quite fair and reasonable. Our photos will last a lifetime, and I'm so happy that we found a talented and kind photographer who wanted to meet our needs and who our guests adored as well. Thanks for everything Rob!

Here’s what my Commercial clients think:
Rob has been Hen and Hammock’s photographer since we started the business in 2006. From the outset we wanted exceptional lifestyle products photos that would work for the press as well as on our website and Rob has consistently achieved this. His photos have made an enormous contribution to our success and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone except our competitors.
We were looking for a quality photographer to do a range of different photographs representing our business for our new website. I knew Rob and after a competitive pricing review we engaged him to carry out the task. On the day he was organised, on time, imaginative in his set up and produced a suite of photos that we could use over the next couple of years in a variety of ways to promote our business. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking to carry out similar tasks.
