"Eva-Lena created a custom marriage certificate for my husband and I that is one of our favorite keepsakes from our wedding day. I highly recommend working with Eva-Lena. She communicated clearly and worked with me to get the details just right. I sent her many emails regarding size, custom images, text and Eva-Lena always replied speedily and with helpful responses. The ultimate certificate had custom birds representing each of our home states and is just gorgeous." - Carrie Rhodes

"When we decided to get married In Mendocino,Ca we needed to find a local photographer. So I researched and Robert Stewart came up. His pictures were breathtaking, I had to hire him! He was very easy to work with. But the bonus was how amazing our pictures turned out. He was truly awesome with the candid shots and I would never recommend anyone else!" - Brooke Toronto

"Hi Robert, I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that Dave and I appreciate your photos from the wedding more than ever now, more than a year later.

"Finding the right wedding photographer can be a daunting task especially when there are so many to choose from. Robert Stewart came highly recommended by the photographer I had originally contacted after we had learned that he would be out of the country during our wedding. My husband and I are photography enthusiasts; my sister even told me that it will be hard to please me since she knows how picky I can be. We felt that Robert would do a wonderful job after we reviewed his portfolio on his website. He was very prompt in replying to my initial email with a lot of useful information regarding packages and prices. When we finally had the chance to speak to each other on the phone, we automatically clicked and I knew he was the guy for us! I told Robert what we were looking for; we wanted to document our wedding as it was happening; that we wanted the shots to be more candid. We could not have been more pleased after meeting him for the first time on our wedding day. It felt like Robert was somebody whom we have known for a long time. We did not even notice him during our wedding and yet there were hundreds upon hundreds of stunning pictures from that unforgettable day. We truly enjoyed working with him. He has a way of making everybody feel at ease when he was taking pictures. We have received countless compliments with our beautiful wedding pictures. The details and the composition of the pictures speak of Robert's great eye and true talents. Robert, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our special day. Our pictures will always remind us of our great love story." - Annalee Pineda

"Such a beautiful masterpiece. Really just gorgeous - worth every cent. We will treasure this for years to come as a reminder of how special our day was! :) We received TONS of compliments for this certificate. Thank you!" - Hannah Duffy

"We have a restaurant and wedding site in Sonoma. We have seen Robert come many times to do photography for bridal parties---and he is the ultimate professional. Very responsive to the wishes of the bride and groom, quick to catch that [special photo], yet not intrusive. After the wedding we hear nothing but rave reviews from the bride and groom." - Gia G, owner, The Depot Hotel

"Robert and Vic's photography was a big highlight of our wedding. Both were complete naturals with us and our friends and family. They really captured the natural essence of people and did some great closeups of details. It was a pleasure to get to know Robert during our engagement shoot, that by the time the wedding rolled around many guests thought he was a friend or family. He is very professional and timely in getting proofs to us as well. We can't wait to have him take photos when we start a family." - Margaret & Jim Caldwell

"Eva-Lena made our Quaker marriage certificate for our upcoming wedding in July. It was breathtakingly beautiful. It will hang in our house forever. Thank you, Eva-Lena!" - Agnes & Stephen Kessler

"Robert Stewart is amazing.  His pictures of our wedding were absolutely perfect. Robert has the instincts and timing of a photojournalist, the artistry of a masterpiece painter, the heart of a poet, the taste of a museum curator and the footprint of a ninja. It all combines for an experience in which Robert is able to find out exactly what you want and deliver it completely.  He is totally invested in every step of the process – before, during and after the wedding itself. Robert makes himself available as an incredibly knowledgeable resource, and we were so fortunate to have been able to benefit from his expertise. Above all, Robert seems to read people amazingly well, and his photos reflect that.  People are put at ease in his presence, and he allows them to shine in all their beauty.  And to top it all off, when he's working, Robert is virtually… invisible.  It's amazing to think that he can document every nook and cranny of a huge event like a wedding, and yet it's hard to remember having ever seen him.  A ninja indeed." - Nina & Gabriel Stricker

"I would really like to thank you for doing such a wonderful job with the photos. They were just what we were after. You caught so many beautiful moments, both planned and candid- it brings me right back to the day! It is obvious from your pictures that you have a real human instinct as well as an artistic flair for detail- the ideal wedding photographer! Your depictions are pure and elegant. I've received many compliments on your photos, and am hard pressed to find other examples that come close to telling the story that yours do. All of this done while not calling any attention to yourself! You had such a calming presence and good vibe. I consider you a crucial part of my sanity that day- when I felt scattered you were there, calm and collected, with a professional attitude that moved us through some funky moments- again, that human instinct thing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'd recommend you far and wide." - Anne & Greg Loarie

"We truly feel fortunate that you were available to capture our event. We enjoyed the time we spent with you and love that you gave us the natural shots we had hoped for." - Snjezanna & Timothy Huerta

"It's hard to know what to expect when you select a photographer based on the photos on his website. But beautiful photos they were - and then the praise from locals began to trickle in, and we felt more confident. But Robert Stewart of Artseed far exceeded what we hoped for. We met him for an engagement session, and he was laid-back, sweet, and guided us through it well. The photographs were absolutely stunning, and we received many compliments from people telling us what great photos they were. He really seeks to capture the spirit of the relationship between his subjects. We were confident that our wedding photos would turn out fabulous, and they did indeed! Robert was inobstrusive yet I felt secure knowing he would be there to perfectly document our wedding. He was always so professional yet humanistic in his approach - a great person as well as a great photographer. We are extremely satisfied and happy with the job he did, and woud highly recommend him to anyone." - Ashley & Ben Sternberg

"Robert Stewart of Artseed did a terrific job for us. His pictures are fantastic and he was really pleasant to work with. I'd recommend him without reservation." - Christine & Christopher Elmendorf

"Robert Stewart is a superb photographer, and my husband and I were thrilled with the pictures he took at our wedding this summer. He captured the essence of the day without any unnatural posing, and his presence was simply that of a friendly onlooker. That is why we marvel at the lovely images he has preserved not just of us, but of our dear friends and family as well as many intricate details that would otherwise have been forgotten. We wish Robert the best of everything as he flies down the road of success." - Patricia & Geoff Ergo

"Having an illustrated wedding contract was on my wishlist ever since we began planning our Big Day. In the chaos of wedding planning, this detail got lost in the mix and we failed to commission one; suddenly there was less than 2 weeks to go before our wedding. Unable to let go of the idea, but knowing what joy it would bring to have this momento, I remembered seeing the amazing work of Eva-Lena Rehnmarkon her website. With high hopes, but expecting her to tell me that it was too late to commission this work, I called her. Within the day, she called me back to discuss details and establish whether or not enough time was allotted. We were so excited that she fit us in to her busy schedule- working with us in our budget and tight time crunch. She was fabulous to communicate with- she listened very carefully to what our vision was for the contract, she offered a variety of options, built on our vision with wonderful, personalized ideas, and was in consistent contact throughout the process. Eva-Lena quickly sent us sketches of the proposed illustrated wedding contract and was very open to our feedback regarding color schemes and additional details we desired. When she sent the final image of the contract, we were blown away by its beauty. With only a couple days to go before our destination wedding, Eva-Lena expedited the shipping of the contract, sending it to our wedding planner with days to go before our Big Day. When we saw the contract in person on the day of our wedding, we were overjoyed- it is even more beautiful in person! It truly captures the beauty, magic, and love that we experienced on our wedding day and reminds us daily of the vows we made to one another, blessed by those with whom we celebrated; especially our mothers who had signed the contract with us. Thanks to Eva-Lena, we have this beautiful keepsake and a very personal art piece. Thank you, Eva-Lena!!!" - Wendy Burns

"Robert was a wonderful photographer and captured our big day perfectly. He was very flexible and went the extra mile to get us the moments we wanted. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone looking for professionalism and creativity in their wedding photographer." - Wendy & Tim Markowitz

"Robert Stewart of Artseed did an excellent job. He was easy going, fun to work with, and respected the importance of our day. The photos are beautiful, and we are totally happy with the results. We love Robert and have already recommended him and will continue to do so - he is the best!" - Kelly & Eric Black

"Robert was a dream to work with. Not only did he take fabulous photos, but everyone at the wedding commented to us about how nice he was. We even asked him to stay for the reception dinner when we found out there would be an open seat! We had a small destination wedding and the photos were exactly what we were looking for. Most were candid moments captured just perfectly. We didn’t notice him once during the ceremony, yet he had every picture we could’ve asked for. We've been told a few of the photos look like ads even! Considering we live out of state Robert made the album process quite easy. He also conferenced with us over the phone several times to get to know us, the style of the wedding, and just to put us at ease since we would not get to meet before the wedding. We would highly recommend Robert Stewart to every bride and groom!" - Dianna & Derick Lyngholm

"Our wedding in Mendocino was magical and Robert Stewart did an amazing job capturing all its special moments. He was helpful from beginning to end. His experience in the photo industry made us look like our pictures were right out of a magazine. What we liked the most was his stealth-like presence at the event. I’ve been to too many events where the photographer’s overbearing presence corrupted the event. Robert was the best I’ve seen. Our guests commented on how professional he was. Lastly, his prices were extremely competitive, especially considering the quality of his work." - Christine & Howard Cohn

"Thank you very much for adding your personality and talent to our wedding day! Jim and I were ecstatic with the day and pleased we chose you to photograph us...We did receive the album and the pictures. They are amazing. I wanted to share with you that our family and friends loved the moments you captured and felt that you did an outstanding job, as we did, too. Your skill and personality left us nostalgic for our day and elated that we chose you as our photographer. Thank you so much for shipping everything in time for our party over the weekend. It added so much to the event that they were able to share our pictures with us." - Courtney & Jim Abraham

"Where to start? Finding with Eva-Lena was a huge coup. Working with her was a joy. She's a talented artist who understood my vision even when it wasn't clearly developed to me. I LOVE the final product. It's unique, artful and professional. I can't wait for my family and friends to see it!" - Lisa Savage

"Robert...Louis and I have looked at all of your photos from the wedding and we are so happy! They turned out wonderfully! It was great we got the link to the website on Wednesday so we were able to share them with my family over Thanksgiving and everyone was so pleased with the quality and variety of the photos--you did such a great job capturing the love and intimacy that we felt on that day, plus the energy and excitement of the reception...They turned out so beautifully--we couldn’t be happier." - Lynn & Louis Kalmar

"With Robert Stewart you get the best of both worlds - a photographer who both listens to what you want, and then follows through with a truely beautiful product. During the event Robert was everywhere and nowhere at once, the result was a good selection of beautiful shots that told our story, lucky us! Working with Robert was a pleasure. He was on time and his communications were always clear and concise. Robert Stewart is a gifted photographer, a first-rate consultant, and a teriffic person. I highly recommend him and his work." - Kirsten & Christian Geney
