Comfortable | Honest | Timeless
I focus on making sure that every couple or family 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 try to 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!

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