Emily Matthews

Studio Manager

2018 marks Emily’s sixth year with Rob Spring Photography. Originally from Saratoga Springs, Emily has a degree in Musical Theater from Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA. After a decade of performing and living in NYC, Emily decided to settle down, marry her dreamboat Jason, and start having adorable babies. Rob photographed Emily’s wedding in 2011. Shortly thereafter, still in love with all things wedding, she began working in the studio with Rob. True, Rob’s name may be on the door, but Emily does all the heavy lifting around here including assisting, emailing, billing, editing and encouraging unhealthy food choices for Rob.

Rob Spring


Rob is the boss and does what he wants. But since he’s surrounded by female employees, he pretty much does what they say. So, he’s not really the boss… but his name is definitely on the sign. Rob graduated from the Hallmark Institute of Photography, where his portfolio was in the top 10% of his class. He and his wife, Rosie, live in Saratoga Springs, NY and have two darling little girls – again, surrounded by women, even at home. Originally from Glens Falls, NY, Rob has worked in 47 of the lower 48 states. If you are getting married in Alaska, Hawaii, or North Dakota, he would like to offer you a substantial discount. He is also writing this in the “third person.”

Sarah Wigley

Associate Photographer

2018 is Sarah’s fourth year with Rob Spring Photography. Born in Canada, eh, Sarah grew up on Long Island and has a BFA in Visual Arts and BA in Music from SUNY Potsdam. In addition to wedding photography, Sarah has a passion for fine art, travel photography, and cat memes. Over 350 of her photographs have been featured on Vogue Italia’s website, and her photography was shown at Milan Fashion Week in 2012. Things that you can expect from Sarah on a wedding day: sick dance moves, much giggling, and copious amounts of dad jokes. Sarah lives in Saratoga with her fiancee and 2 adorable cats, but she knows they will never be as cute as Rob and Emily’s children.

Kerri Dornicik

Associate Photographer

The newest member of our team, Kerri, joins us from Long Island and is super excited to be settling into her new home in the Capital Region with her handsome pup, Jonas. Kerri has a BFA in Photography from SUNY New Paltz and has been busy photographing happy couples since 2009.  Kerri has a serious case of wanderlust and loves to add to her photo travelogue along the way. You can often find her splashing around in her kayak with her canine first mate. On your wedding day, Kerri likes to keep things easy-going, fun, stress-free and full of smiles. If you’re lucky, you may catch her picking leaves or twigs out of her hair after climbing out the flower bushes to “get the shot”.

Mitchell Wood


Mitchell lives for adventure. Exploration is his middle name (well actually it’s Alan but please don’t tell anyone). Growing up in Alaska and North Dakota instilled a drive to overcome any challenge and accomplish any task. That drive and curiosity, are what helps him tell stories through the lens of a camera. After developing his interest in photography (pun intended) during his college years, the decision to pursue a creative career blossomed into his role here at RSP. As a cat-dad to three, a father of four human kids, and a husband to the most amazing woman ever, adventure has taken on a whole new meaning.
