You always hear to spend the money on a good photographer because the photos will last a lifetime, well Rob was inexpensive (relative to other photographers in the area) but extremely high quality! He did a wonderful job with very little direction, I pretty much put it in his hands and let him do his thing. So glad I did because he has a great eye and there were so many beautiful pictures I got from the day. Rob was punctual, professional, and took a zillion pictures. I would recommend him in a second!

We were so pleased with this photographer. He really understood what we wanted and knew how to put the right photographs together for us. Site unseen, he really used the environment of our wedding site to put together some amazing and memorable shots. He was with us all day and even spent some time taking shots of us after the wedding, without the party and guests. Unlike most photographers, he gave us the rights to all of the photos. He sent us all of the originals plus 250 or so edited images ready for print. He is professional and made planning our wedding so easy. We HIGHLY recommend using W Portrait Photography for your wedding/event.

We were so happy with the day of the wedding and Rob's work that day, plus now seeing the wedding pictures, they are breathtaking! I really appreciate that Rob was completely "go with the flow" and didn't push us to take pictures throughout our wedding. I can't say enough about Rob's work and how friendly he are. None of my guests even mentioned him, which is exactly what we wanted, a photographer that isn't in everyone's face. Plus Rob put up with my overly organized personality without complaint. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Oh, we also had Rob take our engagement pictures and those turned out just as beautiful. Plus we had a fun day just walking about a little town in wine country. He really has an eye for great backgrounds! We highly recommend him!

I was planning a destination wedding up in Northern California from San Diego, so I didn't have a chance to meet Rob before the actual day, which I have to admit was a little scary. But upon meeting him, he was very nice, very professional and among all, super patient with the craziness of the day!! Rob was like a fly on the wall, and captured every moment in it's entirety. He got the boys and girls getting ready (separately of course), the dancing, cake cutting, flower tossing, etc etc etc! He was open to whatever I threw at him, and did it with a smile. We just got our pictures back last week, and I couldn't be more happy with the artisitic ability of Rob's work. The pictures are truly amazing. I would recommend Rob to everybody I know! Thanks Rob!!

You are getting WAY more than you pay for with Rob! The photo quality was fantastic and he literally ran around to get the photos that we wanted. It ended up raining on our wedding day and we had to take our pictures inside of a hotel rather than outside. This ended up working out to be an AMAZING twist of fate! Rob was SUPER creative using the props around the hotel to include in the pictures (wallpaper, mirrors, couch, piano, etc). He flew in for our rehearsal and hung around ALL night the night of the wedding. He is a calming presence to have on your wedding day and is able to orchestrate everyone during the taking of the pictures, which is SOO not as easy as one might think, especially with a bridal party as large as ours. I would recommend him to my best friend, and have already done so! You will NOT be disappointed!

Rob was great! He was responsive and great to work with, very professional, and, most important, our pictures turned out fabulous despite less than ideal weather and quite a last minute rush (fault of the bridal party! - not Rob!). Thanks Rob!!!

Rob Wenneberg is a consummate professional and it shows. We interviewed Rob because his website says, "I see a wedding as an entire day event. There are no hourly fees. I'm there as long as you'd like me." We liked that.

It was easy to set up an interview; the next time Rob was in Denver, he met us at a Starbucks with his portfolio and his equipment. It was easy to talk to him; he has great communication skills. And his portfolio shows a depth of experience, which is key.

Most important: the photographs turned out great! Friends later said, "I never saw your photographer." The event isn't about the photographer's ego or the photographer's timeline. The event is about you & your spouse. With Rob, you'll get fantastic pictures at a very reasonable price, and he just works quietly, no fuss - no muss. He's just the way a wedding photographer ought to be.
