Robert Paetz is a photographer based in Orange County, Los Angeles and Seattle and is available for wedding coverage around the world. He has traveled to over 60 countries to photograph weddings, work on travel photography assignments and create imagery for NGOs and humanitarian organizations. He has a passion for the planet, it's cultures and spends about 3 months on the road each year working and experiencing what this big blue globe has to offer.
For Robert, your wedding is more than just another wedding. He views each celebration as an opportunity to creatively capture you as a couple; including your family, friends, cultures and everything that makes you unique. In addition to his passion for photography and travel, Robert loves hiking, cooking (he’s rather domestic, and spends hours each day in the kitchen), playing LEGO, building things with his hands/tools and has a goal of sampling all the worlds cheeses (France alone has 450!)
Since no two weddings are the same, Robert will be happy to chat with you and build a coverage package to best fit your needs. Feel free to call or email and we can get the planning started!

I have used this service for my engagement shoot and it came out perfect! It was a pleasure working for them and the prices were more than reasonable for the high end quality of the photos you get. Highly recommended!Sent on 12/05/2018

We can't say enough about Robert. We initially booked him to take our engagement photos. My wife was nervous about being comfortable and taking such important photos with a stranger. Within five minutes of meeting Rob, she was completely at ease, joking and laughing. The engagement session went great. Rob even delivered the completed photos within a few days. We were so happy with the photos that we decided to book Rob for our wedding.Sent on 09/18/2018
Rob made the entire process seamless and easy. He provided any documentation needed to our vendors and wedding planner as soon as requested and even contacted another location for us to take first look photos. We requested a second photographer and Rob came through with a second shooter, Gavin, who was also amazing. Rob and Gavin were punctual, easy going, and a pleasure to work with. They were able to wrangle our crazy family together to get all the needed photos, which isn't an easy task. Rob even delivered the final photos much earlier than expected. We were both ecstatic when we received all the pictures. Rob and Gavin captured the day perfectly. Any family member or friend that we've shown the photos too immediately say they're the best wedding pictures they've ever seen.Choosing Rob as our photographer was easily the best wedding decision we made.

Robert was recommended to me by another photographer whose pictures I liked but was booked on our wedding date. Because the pictures were so important to me, I was in contact with several photographers and took a lot of time to study each and pick the best fit. Robert was "the one" without a doubt. His pictures were stunning, he was so helpful and professional in our pre-wedding meeting, and his professionalism on the day of made him the vendor MVP.Sent on 09/13/2018
We were both feeling the nerves on the day of but Robert made us feel so relaxed and ourselves even while posing that the pictures turned out incredibly. He helped me with a wardrobe malfunction when a button popped off my dress train right before the ceremony (he studied theater in college and had experience with wardrobe issues), he handled bossy relatives with ease ("get a picture of this," "make sure you get a shot of..."), he was a pleasure to be around, and felt like a part of the family after all was said and done. Robert is a pro, he takes his job (and your memories) seriously, his work speaks for itself (gorgeous pictures), and he's just fun to be around. We loved working with him and couldn't recommend him more highly. You'll be in good hands if you choose to work with Robert for your wedding or any event.
