Yelp Review

I chose Roy before my baby was born based on these glowing Yelp reviews, and Yelp did not lead me astray! Roy was very responsive to each of my communications and really tuned into what I asked for (whimsical shots besides family photos). He was so patient with our baby, shhing and gently tapping her into adorable poses...sometimes for minutes before the pose was photo ready! He stayed well beyond our "allotted time" because our baby was "so cooperative" and gave us an amazing portfolio of photos capturing this special time that we will treasure always. An all-around nice guy to work with and talk to.

I can't begin to explain how pleased I am that we picked Roy for our Newborn shoot. Roy was absolutely wonderful with our 10-day old baby boy and he took so much care with him. We never felt rushed during our session, Roy took time to make sure everything was perfect. Roy was so warm and friendly throughout the shoot it was like working with an old friend. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and we had so many to choose from- it was almost impossible to pick. We are so delighted with the pictures and how it captured such a special time in our lives and our little boy at such a young age. I would highly recommend Roy to anyone who is looking for a photographer. We are already looking forward to our 1 year old shoot with him. Thank you so much, Roy! You rock :)

I highly recommend working with Roy for any family, extended family or kids photo session needs you may have. When planning my Dad's surprise 50th Birthday we decided we wanted to have a professional photographer capture it, since it is not often now that we are all in one place together at once. Roy was very responsive when I reached out to see if he could help with this and the whole process of setting up the session went smoothly from there. I have a four month old whose schedule is still pretty unpredictable and he was flexible with the timing of the session, even with it being the Saturday before Easter and even after having a family emergency pop up last minute. Once he arrived at the house where we were staying in Brooklyn, he started snapping pictures pretty much right away and making my almost three year old comfortable. He was able to get some amazing shots of not only my entire family all together (all 7 of us plus 2 kids) but also some really cute candid shots of my older son. My four month old wasn't in the most smiley mood that day but he still even managed to get some good pictures with him too. There is one really great black and white one of both my sons sitting together that we are in the process of getting made into a large canvas. Thanks again Roy for helping out with my Dad's birthday surprise!

Yelp Review

We had our family session done recently in Central Park and we're very happy with how the pictures turned out. Chasing after a 2-yr-old for pictures is a tough job, but Roy was patient, easygoing, and just a wonderful photographer to work with. We had a really pleasant experience with Roy despite how crowded the park was that day. He's awesome!

Yelp Review

I have worked with several professional children's photographers in the past, and I can confidently say that Roy is heads and shoulders above the rest!
We chose a location shoot. Roy has a great eye for using the surroundings to both make my children feel comfortable in their environment and for creating great backdrops for our photos. Roy made my little ones feel themselves in front of the camera. He was also able to capture their different moods and personalities - all within the time we spent with Roy during our shoot.

Roy wasn't only amazing with my kids, he was amazing with our dog! One of the most precious photos that came from our time with Roy was one where he caught my little boy hugging our little dog.

What is also important to know about Roy is that he is tireless. Roy kept going and kept taking photos even after my son was no longer interested. Roy is a perfectionist and he keeps trying to capture that "great shot," which he does! There were so many great pictures that came out of our time with him. Finally, Roy is a true professional. He was responsive; timely; and he highly cooperative.

We look forward to working with Roy for our family photos again. I would recommend Roy without hesitation.

I cannot rave enough about Roy. It was truly an honor to watch him capture my daughter's personality during her senior photo shoot. We were traveling and this was the best decision I made. He was flexible and accommodating to our needs, understanding our limited knowledge of the city. He made it very easy for us to meet. His professionalism and understanding of teenagers shows in every photo.
He took time to get to know us and took photos along the way. My daughter and myself were overwhelmed with the photos, every one was better than the previous. Hopefully we will get a chance to work with him again when my son is a senior.

Yelp Review

My fiancee and I used Photography by Roy for our engagement photos in Central Park and we are so impressed and pleased with the final product! We were on a tight schedule and only had a few days available for our engagement shoot, Roy was beyond accommodating and worked within our busy schedules to get us in. Roy was very professional but also very friendly, we felt like we were strolling through the park with a friend of ours. He took us to a variety of spots in Central Park and towards the end of the shoot asked us if there were any locations within the park that we didn't get. My fiancee had one location in mind and Roy was more than happy to walk there with us to take a couple more shots.

We had never done a professional shoot before and Roy helped guide us on what positions to take and what angles or subtle movements would look best in the photos. He was also happy to hear our recommendations and let us know his thoughts. We were a little uncomfortable at first since a photo shoot was new for us, but Roy did a great job of being friendly and making us feel comfortable.

After the shoot, Roy sent the online link to us ahead of schedule and broke down the entire process through his emails on how we access the photos and how we share the link with others. We received the USB with the high res images ahead of schedule as well!

A couple months after receiving the final images we needed a couple of the high def images sent to us again, so we could send them to print. Roy responded right away and sent over the new files within a few minutes.

Only positive things to say about Roy and his work! Definitely recommend him to others looking for a professional, skilled, and friendly photographer!
