About Robin Fadtke
I started Zoart Photography 12 years ago while living in Los Angeles and have been capturing fun-filled, contemporary, and elegant weddings of all types ever since. Today I call Sacramento and the entire Bay Area home, often traveling throughout California to cover events.
I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities that couples and families have given me along the way, and I adore the fact I’ve found something so intimately rewarding as well as so incredibly challenging as photographing weddings and where I'm more alive than anywhere else! This joyful, fast-paced addicting thrill allows me to be super creative, and with a refined eye and attention to detail, I look towards my clients with style and great love stories to tell.
Dramatically lit, timed, and clean images are my trademark. I dig deep to capture personality and flare, blending close-up and expressive imagery with wide-angle storytelling. My style lies in my romantic nature and I take inspiration from theater and art, fashion and movies, and glamour and stage. Furthermore, I take pride in the ability to shoot without being intrusive and hundreds of happy brides have enjoyed their wedding day with minimal interruption!
I love helping with your timeline for the day and have lots of suggestions for do's and don'ts as I've seen and experienced many things that work and many that do not! A good first question is will we do the first look and get as many pictures covered prior to your ceremony or do we keep the magic and let the groom glance upon his bride for the first time as you walk down the aisle? I'm super into collaborating on your ideas as well, so feel free to share your inspirations or your concerns.
Our engagement session is a great way to begin our relationship and I always include it complimentary for this reason. When your wedding day arrives we can look forward to already being in a comfortable and trusting place, anticipating the excitement that awaits you, your family, and your friends on your wedding day!
You really do spend a significant portion of your wedding day with your photographer, so it's such a benefit to have a fun, polite, easy-going person to lead you from getting ready all the way through to family photos!
A few favorite moments to capture: I adore when I notice something about my clients that match up with their vision for the day; when a father sees his daughter fully dressed for the first time; and the moment right after the couple walks down their aisle with friends and family behind them, genuine cheerful happiness on their faces–then looking at each other with that 'We did it' smile... your post-nuptial glow!
