Testimonials - GobrailPhotography

" Now that the dust has finally settled so to speak since our big day, I wanted to make a point of writing this review specifically! Sam & Jen offer you the cost of one photographer, and give you two. Having a husband and wife team is extremely helpful, particularly before while getting ready for our ceremony! A midst all the craziness of the day, they remained calm and started to feel more like friends we had known than my vendor.! I believe the fact that they are relatively newlyweds themselves gives them an advantage in understanding what is expected/wanted out of a photographer for a wedding."

"We hired Gobrail Photography for our wedding, and they did an amazing job in all aspects. The chemistry between Sam and Jen and their approach to photography made them the perfect photographers to capture our most precious and sentimental moments. During our initial meetings, Sam and Jen discussed our vision and how their experiences could translate into capturing the spirit of our ceremony. 

Prior to the ceremony, they each met us at our respective locations so that we could have preparation pictures with our attendants. Jen met with the bride and bridesmaids at our hotel suite and she did an awesome job of setting up very creative shots with the gown, shoes, bouquet, and jewelry. Individual shots of the bride looking out of the window over downtown Washington, DC are gorgeous.

Sam did an excellent job of capturing key moments of fun with the groom and groomsmen while we got dressed at the church. One of the best moments captured was an emotional hug between the groom and father of the groom, an invaluable moment that will forever be cherished. During this preparation time, Sam and Jen displayed an ability to be in the midst without being in the way. An excellent photographer is one in position to capture all of the great moments without you feeling like they’re over your shoulder. In that case, Sam and Jen are excellent photographers.

Sam and Jen have a knack for excellent timing, and this allows them to capture outstanding action shots. One of our favorite pictures shows us jumping the broom during the ceremony, which pays homage to our African ancestry. After the ceremony, Sam and Jen were very efficient with taking the formal pictures of the entire wedding party. They ensured everyone was comfortable, and their patience and sense of humor made the process go smoothly. At the reception, they captured the special elements such as our cake, favors, and decorations, and incorporated these elements into special shots with our wedding rings. Additionally, they captured memorable pictures of us with our family and friends, and they got many great dancing shots from our first dance and the “Soul Train” line. Sam and Jen truly captured our personalities and the joyous mood of the occasion in all of the pictures.

We give Gobrail Photography our highest recommendation. Sam and Jen are an energetic, polite, funny, and creative husband and wife team who are very gifted photographers. We are so grateful we hired them to be our photographers for the best day of our lives."

"Have you ever meet that person who made your heart skip a beat? That person who you felt an instant connection with? No, we are not talking about each other, but rather Sam and Jen from Gobrail Photography.

I (Renee) initially met Sam and Jen at a Bridal Show in August 2012. I was with my Mom and my sister and we were in awe of their presentation and products. When it finally got to the time for Peter and I to start looking at photographers, Gobrail Photography was at the top on our list to meet with. After completing their online inquiry form, we were quickly contacted by them to set up a face-to-face meeting. We met them in their home office which is filled with many examples of why they are award winning photographers.

After discussing it, Peter and I decided to hire Gobrail for our engagement shoot and wedding. Our engagement shoot took place at Camden Yards and at Fort McHenry. Our wedding was to take place in the Little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore City.

At our engagement shoot, Peter and I were nervous, but Sam and Jen quickly put us at ease and the cameras started clicking. Within a few minutes, we forgot that they were even there. I had started using Pinterest to pin photo ideas so that Sam and Jen could get an idea of what we wanted. Sam and Jen went over and above what I even thought that I wanted. The final results were astounding engagement photos. We were even more excited for the wedding knowing that they would capture our day perfectly.

Sam and Jen certainly did not disappoint with our wedding photos. We have had them for a little more than a week now and I think that we have look at them (all 500+) at least 15 times already.

Sam and Jen were open and honest with us prior to our wedding when we discussed some of the particular photos that we wanted. For example, we told that that we wanted table shots. I know these shots never really come out all that well, but we wanted to try to make sure that we had one photo of every person at our wedding. Sam reiterated this fact and said that they would find a way for us to get photos of all of our guests. What we ended up with is perfection! Sam got up on a tall (a really tall) ladder and gathered the entire group for a group shot. It turned out to be one of our favorite photos from the night!
A few of the comments that we have received so far on our photos include: Unique, beautiful, not run of the mill, awesome and exceptional. And we couldn’t agree more. Thank you Sam and Jen for capturing our wedding (and engagement shoot) so absolutely perfectly!"
{Renee & Peter}

"Gobrail Photography (Sam and Jen) were amazing and super fun to work with. In every way we were blown out of this world with their skills and professionalism as well as the way they worked with us. Our engagement session was a blast and we both went home with sore stomachs from all the laughing we did...sure made it easy to take great pictures when you can't stop grinning from ear to ear. On the wedding day they split up pre ceremony and took some of my favorite pictures of all time and I will have them displayed for the rest of my life. Jen was what we decided to call a photogrpher ninja for the way she moved all over the place and got some of the most beautiful shots I have EVER seen in a wedding. I would work with Gobrail Photography a million times before I thought to switch to another group/company!!! Go with them and you WILL be happy."
{Erin & Greg}

"We used Sam and Jen for our engagement party, and we couldn't be happier with our photos! Sam and Jen were amazing! This young couple works VERY well together, and is talented, creative, and warm. They gave us the freedom to tell them how we wanted our pictures to look, while still incorporating their great style and technique. Their passion for photography and attention to detail really showed through in our pictures, and I constantly find myself looking back at our pictures and smiling. We definitely recommend Gobrail Photography to everyone out there hoping to capture the spirit of their special event."
{Reim & Bishoy}

"Sam and Jen Gobrail were great again! The pictures they shot came out amazing! They really captured everyone’s personalities in the photos as well as the general mood of the evening. I would highly recommend this couple because they were extremely nice, caring, knowledgeable, and professional. It’s also perfect that they work together because they combine their two different stylistic approaches and can split up and cover different parts of the day."
{Alex & Jimmy}

"Sam and Jen were the perfect photographers for our wedding day. We met both of them at a wedding show and decided immediately that they were the perfect fit. It didn't matter how far away they were, they remained involved in the wedding process and reached out to us to finalize. Prior to the wedding they recommended we like their Pinterest Board. This was a fantastic idea because on the day of the wedding they knew exactly what shots my husband and I wanted. The day of the wedding was an amazing experience with them. Talk about putting my mind at ease. I didn't have to think about anything regarding pictures. Sam and Jen helped both my husband and I along the way and told us what to do (even the little details like the bouquet toss). Our pictures turned out wonderful and our family and friends would agree. I would recommend Sam and Jen to everyone having a wedding. They are truly some of the best photographers and people we know."
{Kate & Sam}
