Wedding Photography that deepens your connection and empowers your relationship.

I help adventurous couples craft romantic weddings that are natural and uncontrived.
I don’t just care about your photos. I care more about you.
my camera is a tool to help couples deepen their relationship so they have a stronger marriage
In my 13 years of photographing couples, I’ve discovered that the depth and meaning of your wedding images come down to two things.
  • How you feel on your wedding day
  • How you feel in front of a camera
How can anyone photograph you authentically if they don’t know you? How can you trust them if you don’t know them? The options for wedding photography are more abundant than ever. You want incredible images, that is a given, however how comfortable you feel in front of the camera is determined by how empowered you feel by who is behind it. For a long time as a photographer, I chased the perfect image with the perfect light in the perfect setting until I realized that meaningful photographs aren’t only about how they look, they are more about how they feel. The secret sauce behind my work lies in the depths of the relationships I build with my couples because you deserve more than a surface level experience around this day. I’m here to photograph each moment with intention and to learn why the two of you are choosing each other for the rest of your lives. This drives my work. I’m going to capture images that are authentic and natural to who you in every moment of intimacy and joy. I’m going to support the day you truly want, with the people you truly want to spend it with because you only get this once and who you invite matters. I’m going to help you craft and plan a day that is free of stress and anxiety and I’m not going to help you plan the most perfect day of your life, but instead the most romantic day of your life.

Your images are the byproduct of your relationship
I believe the quality of our lives has nothing to do with the quantity of our posessions and this has lead me to craft a minimalistic lifestyle, a constant search for adventure, and a pursuit of growth and self-discovery everyday. I owe most of who I have become in this life to my wife and our marriage. She has changed my world with her brilliancy, strength, and overwhelming support for others. We fell in love adventuring together and after we married in 2012, our lives changed in a dramatic and unexpected way...
What Couples are saying

“My mind was blown last night at Robert J Hill’s workshop. I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited to be 1000% myself, nor have I felt this much sense of deep purpose/appreciation in what I do. Robert, thank you for making me feel so whole before booking season!”

“You are so inspiring, thank you so much for being so open and honest!”

“It was unbelievable to say the very least!”

“Had SO much fun! And learned more than I could have imagined. Stoked to implement everything! Thanks Robert! You seriously rock.”


because life is about discovery

Pioneer Sessions are multi-day photo retreats for adventurous couples looking to disconnect from the world and reconnect in nature. Life is about experiences and how those moments change who we are. This is an opportunity to discover a new place in the elements, to learn something about yourself, and to deepen your relationship. Past Pioneer Sessions have involved hiking to a Fire Tower in the North Cascade Mountains, Roadtripping to the High Desert of Oregon to sleep under the stars on the Alvord Playa, and summiting 7000’ up to the high alpine region of Oregon’s most well known volcano.
