I’m Robby (on the right) and I am the one behind the camera and computer screen. I started shooting in 2009 when my brother grew out of a short lived photography phase. Luckily, he left me all of his equipment, and I eventually grew it into Ten23 Photography. My style is evolving as I grow and learn from some influential photographers. I have a B.A. in Political Science from Texas A&M University, and I decided to take the leap and follow my dreams of being a full-time wedding photographer.
Gabe (on the left) is here to assist with our sessions and weddings. He is crucial in making sure everything runs smoothly and he second shoots at weddings. He’s coined the name “Pippa” since he tends to end up holding and fluffing trains and veils as well as making sure hair and flower placement is just right. He recently finished his PhD in Sociology at Texas A&M University. He is now a professor at Mississippi State where he researches health disparities and teaches at the University.
"Robby and Gabe were incredible from start to finish in this process. They were extremely communicative and responsive, even with our many questions from several states away. They laid out exactly what to expect and worked with us to set up times and services that worked for our specific wedding plan. They even helped us set up our day-of timeline! Beyond just the communication and efficiency, they were also just amazingly friendly individuals all around. We planned our wedding out of state, and from the messages sent, and from our in-person meetings, they made us feel completely comfortable and happy at all times. SUPER important since on the big day you're spending a large portion of your time with your photographers. On the day of, they got us through all of our requested photos AND some extra creative ones, way ahead of schedule, leaving us plenty of time to actually interact with our guests! We both have family who were in the photography business, and every single one commented on how great Robby and Gabe were in the planning process, day of, and how beautiful the photos looked when we got our sneak peek. They really thought outside of the box to give us some incredible shots, even with the crazy weather and our out of the ordinary things (i.e. dogs as ringbearers). We couldn't be happier with their services and honestly we consider them friends after this journey. Definitely would recommend with zero reservations."

"A wedding photographer is something I truly didn’t value the importance of until I had my first photo shoot with Robby. Our engagements we took at Lake Bryan. My Husband and I drove from Galveston to Bryan to meet Robby for the photos. We were lucky and the outdoor conditions were favorable - it made for the most beautiful pictures. Robby was so nice and accommodating to us coming in from out of town. I honestly didn’t think my wedding pictures could top the quality of the engagement photos. My second meeting was for my bridals. Again, perfection. This time the weather was a little overcast but he ensured me this would make for perfect pictures - which it did. When the wedding finally came, I felt like Robby and I were old friends. He was so easy going and always going out of his way to get the perfect shots. It made the experience more fun that I felt like our photographer was our friend. I had so much trust in his ability to take the most incredible photos I didn’t worry once about how the wedding pictures would turn out. He had already won my trust and will forever be the photographer I go to as our family grows, special occasions, and life events. I’m forever grateful for his ability to capture the most amazing days of my life."

"I had an amazing experience with Robby and Gabe. They were so professional and always willing to work with the look and style that I had for my wedding. Communication was without a doubt the best, Robby was always there when I needed him and gave me a sense of calm when I was feeling overwhelmed with details. I would highly recommend Ten23 Photography, they truly have an eye for beauty."

"Robby and Gabe were absolutely amazing. From Engagements to bridals to the day of, the level of professionalism they offered was off the charts. They captured every moment I asked them to and give us so many amazing memories to look back at forever. The day of our wedding they showed up on time and spent the whole day with us. From the beginning of the planning process, they helped us tremendously and went above and beyond in everything they did for us. I could not recommend a better photographer than Ten23Photography."
