About this pro

How does your service stand out?

With my photography, I like to focus on capturing the candid interactions between people. My hope is that as you revisit your photos, you're able to relive the moment that the pictures captured, and retell a story from that day related to the image. One of the biggest complements I received was when a couple said looking at my pictures was like "watching a movie, and reliving their wedding day."

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I feel very honored and privileged that someone is trusting me to capture images of their special day, their child, their family, or their group. Whether the photo shoot is for an event or portraits, I really enjoy figuring out what images best capture the feelings, emotions, and personalities of the people I am photographing.

    All Around Great Experience
    Rob did a great job with our company. He was early both shoot days and was great at keeping to the schedule and made everyone comfortable. We will use him again when the need arises.

    Excellent photographer and a fantastic addition to our wedding
    Rob was an excellent photographer and a fantastic addition to our wedding. He was very easy to communicate with before the wedding and really took an interest in getting to know us and our vision for the day. At the wedding itself, he was quite accommodating and arrived earlier and stayed later than planned to make sure he captured the best photos of the day. I would highly recommend hiring Rob for a wedding or any other event!

    Dr. Rob was such a pleasure to work with! We decided to get married in Madison a whim with a small intimate gathering. Dr. Rob took the time to get to know us and our family and our needs. We are extremely happy with the level of professionalism as well as the quality of the photos we have received. I recommend anyone in the Madison area to hire him their event.

    Rob photographed husband and my wedding last year. I couldn't have dreamed up a better experience with a photographer. Rob took his own personal time before the wedding to meet with both of us to get to know what we were about as a couple and as individuals. He was very interested in my expectations and hopes for the service he was providing and extraordinarily patient with my busy graduate school schedule. The event experience was lovely too. Rob made my husband and I feel at ease being photographed and, again, was so very patient with our goofy families during family portraits! Thank you Dr. Rob! You are fantastic.

    Sarah - our cruise around Lake Monona made for a fun backdrop for your wonderful day with your friends and family.

    Deanna - your day was quite a whirlwind - both literally and figuratively:) I enjoyed getting to know Keith and you over the last few months. Your family and friends maybe the entire weekend a lot of fun.

    I believe our wedding was his first wedding shoot. I had 100% confidence in both him and his team. His talent spoke for itself! Rob is gifted in creating the "money shot," great pairings, poses and candid pictures that capture the feeling and and emotion of a special day. His photography style tells a story, bringing you back to each and every moment that you can cherish for a lifetime. Thank you Rob Kate Kingree

    Rob helped make our planning process very easy and listened to the major types of photos we wanted from our wedding. Rob worked to be very involved with our guests and get funny shots we wouldn't have thought of.

    Sarah - Having "met" only Mike and you (via phone call) about a month before your wedding day, I certainly knew this might be one of my more "unconventional" wedding day photography experiences. Of course, the day turned out amazing. The two of you, as well as your family and friends were really wonderful, and a lot of fun to photograph. Thanks for making me a part of your special day.

  • Katie B. Jan 10, 2015
    Robert went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day pictures were exactly what we wanted. He made sure everyone was comfortable in front of the camera and made the whole experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend his quality services! Robert captured the moments that will last a lifetime for me and my family.

    Katie - I enjoyed the simplicity and intimacy of your wedding day. Being able to photograph, Sam and you, as well as you families, was a real treat. Thanks for trusting me to capture your special day.

    Robert photographed my June wedding in rural Evansville, WI. In short, his service was outstanding. My fiancée and I met with him about four months before our wedding and when the big day rolled around, we couldn't have been happier with his service. He was professional, kind and understanding. I would recommend Robert San Juan to anyone looking to have an event photographed.

    Mallory - Such a wonderful day spent with Chris and you. We enjoyed getting to meet your family and friends, and photograph the events of your wedding day. By the end of the evening, when we all cocooned in your tent to stay dry from the rain, we certainly had a lot of interesting and amazing stories to tell.

    I knew Rob's photography from working with him during an AmeriCorps program that mentored students entering kindergarten. While supervising the work that was happening, Rob photographed these moments and turned them into such a special memory for me to hold onto. I am now a kindergarten teacher, but still hold onto these photographs and reflect upon the beginning of my career. When I became engaged, the first vendor I contacted was Rob. He, as well as his brother, has a very professional demeanor, and listened to my list of must have photographs and somehow was able to get every single one! The day went by so quickly, but the photography portion was never too exhausting to anyone. Rob and Ron did a great job checking in with us throughout the day making sure our needs were being met as well as my parents/parents in law needs were met. I highly recommend Rob and Ron's services, they did an absolutely fabulous job capturing every moment of the day! Our wedding day went by so quickly, but thanks to Rob and Ron, our day will last a life time!! Thank you Rob and Ron!:)

    Brittany - my brother and I had a lovely time capturing images from your very special day with Nick. Having known you from a "previous" life, I was honored that you trusted me to photograph your wedding day - that made the event an extra special experience for me.

    Rob did a fantastic job! I absolutely love the pictures and will definitely be contacting him again in the future for more family photo sessions. He met us on site, was wonderful with our children and I just can't say enough great things about him. I absolutely recommend using his services. Thank you Rob!!

    Angie - Such a beautiful family you have. Your family portraits really turned out great. I look forward to spending time more time with you in the future.

    I thought the proofs were great! Can't wait to see the final products. Rob was so professional but very easy to talk to--it is hard to get my son to warm up, but you can tell as the session went on he was more and more relaxed. Would highly recommend!

    Leslie - I had a lot of fun spending time with your son and you. I enjoyed taking Alex's pictures, and helping his personality come through in the photos. They really turned out great. Getting to explore the Conservancy for the first time was an extra treat too!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Photography really started as a hobby for me. I always enjoyed taking pictures, and have been told that I had a good "eye" for it. However, I never had a good camera. I'm lucky enough to have one of those older brothers who loves to upgrade his technology, and hand down his "older" stuff. He gave me his first dSLR after one of these upgrades. In my other life, I use my child development PhD to run preschool education programs, which focus on helping at-risk preschoolers become ready for kindergarten. Through this work, I began capturing the many moments that occurred between the adults and young children working together. The parents, teachers, and students who were involved with my programs really responded to the stories that were being told through the photographs. Soon, I had people asking if I could take family photos, senior photos, event photos.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The majority of my photography focuses on children and families, but my work has been really varied -- weddings, dedication events for University of Wisconsin-Madison Housing, a couple glamour photo shoots, rock band, even a dress rehearsal for a small theater group. I would define my style as playful and dynamic, candid, photojournalistic storytelling. Because of this, I can really adapt to any type of setting.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently photographed the wedding of a really good friend in Green Bay, WI in early January. Luckily, the wedding day occurred on the "warmest" day of the weekend (i.e. mid-20s). The "after wedding" photos involved roaming around Green Bay looking for interesting places outdoors. My crew and I - well let's just say we "powered through" the day. Actually, we had A LOT of fun shooting that day. AND I wasn't the one who had to walk around outside (often through snow) in a wedding dress.
