Comfortable | Honest | Timeless
Wedding Photography

 

I focus on making sure that every couple that works with me gets the absolute best experience possible.

By directing instead of using awkward poses

By joking and laughing rather than telling you to fake a smile

By truly caring about you and the quality of your photos


Brooktree Studios is based in Decatur, Illinois but serves wonderful couples all over the state!

Please take your time and check out my portfolio and blog posts to see some more examples of my photography! I focus on natural poses and beautiful true to life colors in my photos. Avoiding trends and fads in your images will ensure that they will look just as good ten years from now as they do today!

 

Meet me!
ROBERT OLIVER PALMER

Hello everyone! I wanted to use this space to tell you a little bit about myself and why I love what I do!

Photography has always been a way to capture what was happening around me, and for years that is exactly what I did. I took my camera everywhere I went and always tried to look for the beauty of unusual places.

After shooting my first couple weddings I was hooked! I knew that I wanted to use my camera to make a living and weddings were a perfect fit! I absolutely love sharing such a special day with my couples and the relationships that I build along with the great people that I meet while shooting are an amazing bonus! Also, if you have a Photo Booth at your wedding, I will definitely will take a selfie!

When I’m not shooting weddings I’m taking pictures of my chihuahua Chloe or my restored 1975 Corvette. I also love travel, cooking, and trying new things!

I really appreciate you taking time to get to know me, and I would love to get to know you and hear about your vision for your wedding!

My Mission

I want to make choosing your photographer as easy as possible for you, I know how much you have on your plate already! Your wedding is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life, and the photos from it are something you will cherish forever.

I want all of my couples to feel like their time matters just as much as mine, so I work hard to get you your photos as quickly as possible! I edit each and every delivered photo myself and deliver in full resolution with no watermark through a private online gallery!

Canvases, Mounted Frames, Thank You Cards, Fine Art Albums and more are offered through my gallery that will ship straight to your door. Ordering prints and art pieces for your home has never been easier!

I also make sure that every gallery is backed up to multiple encrypted drives, ensuring that if anything happens to your computer or phone your photos will not be lost! Wedding Photography is a huge investment, it’s important to me that you are covered!


You are the most important part of any Wedding. Here are some kind words from other couples and their experiences:

“Working with Robert was an inexplicable dream come true. We connected with the first contact call, and as my husband and I live many states away, we were able to communicate our crazy wedding plan, taking place in a remote location, and not only was Robert on board, had ideas to make it even more. At a loss for words, we would simply say that not only would we work with again and highly recommend Brooktree Studios, but seeing only a few “sneak peek” photos following our ceremony we were blown away! More than grateful for the experience and the forever memories that Robert created for us!”

I can’t say enough about how amazing our experience with Oliver was... As I’m writing this, I just looked though our full wedding gallery that he sent me earlier this afternoon, less than TWO WEEKS after our wedding! My wife and I couldn’t be happier to have had the privilege of Oliver, Adam and Ben photograph and video the most important day of our lives together. They were beyond anything we had expected and truly captured the joy and happiness of our friends family and ourselves celebrating us! Definitely reach out to him if you are in need of someone to capture your big day!
