I had the privilege of speaking at the Southeast Photo Convention a few months back and was approached by Matthew at Finding Creative Success to do a quick podcast interview about my work and approach towards weddings and caring for clients. You can listen below and I hope it’s inspiring to those of you looking to build a business within the photography industry. Check out my last interview with Six Figure Photography about shooting Destination Weddings by clicking here and find additional educational opportunities here!


Hawaii destination weddings are among my favorite to be a part of, as the islands have definitely become one of my favorite locations on the planet. Chrissy & Ryan’s Lanikuhonua wedding at sunset was unbelievable and definitely one heck of a day to kick off the 2017 season. Being that they live in London, Chrissy & Ryan decided to do their engagement session in Iceland (see more here) and then have me travel down to the beautiful Hawaiian islands for their weekend celebration. See the team of people who brought the beauty of this day together at the bottom of the blog and follow along for my other travels to come this year on Instagram (@robertjhillphotography). Press play for a little Hawaiian tune to accompany your viewing.

I’ve realized over the last several years that I’m not actually all that passionate about photography. I am however obsessed with how I can use a camera to help deepen or sometimes even reignite the intimacy between two people. The night before their engagement session, M.C. & Katlin texted me and asked if we could start their shoot off with some intimate portraits in their home. They’ve built a relationship from afar but they are now finally together and starting their first home in the months leading up to their wedding. It’s always an incredible honor to be asked to travel the world and shoot somewhere exotic but being asked to come into someones home and shoot like this was next level for me. These two inspired so much in me over this hour of shooting and I’m sure this won’t be the last time I share something like this. Enjoy…
