My experience with photography starts with a six-year-old boy holding up lights for his dad at a party. When we arrive home, my dad gives me his state-of-the-art Hasseblad camera's detachable back and teaches me to rewind the film. For me it was all fun, but what I didn't realize is that with my father's instructions, he was preparing me for my own future profession. I went to photography school at Focus in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the age of 16. And now, thousands of weddings, events, studio shots, aerial photos, and family photos later, this is still what I do and what I love. Ueda (pronounced "WAY-da") is the name my father chose to be his when he started his business as a Japanese man in Brazil over 50 years ago, and I am carrying it on now as a Brazilian man in the United States. My style is wedding photojournalism. I enjoy the art of photography which lies in capturing the perfect moment when something beautiful is expressed: an emotion, a relationship, an idea.

My dad was a photographer and my oldest brother is a photographer based out of Baltimore. They both tried to talk me out of shooting weddings because they thought it would be too stressful… …They were wrong. This is my 6th full-time year as a wedding photographer and I think it’s the best job I could possibly have. I love it. That’s something I’ll never take for granted. It is my goal to give you photos that bring joy to you and the people who mean the world to you. [Madison Wedding Photographer]
Ruthie’s roots are in photojournalism and art. She received a scholarship to attend Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, where she majored in photography and minored in drawing. She interned at the Irish Times Newspaper in Dublin, Ireland. Upon graduation, she launched her photography business and in 2006, was hired as a Staff Photographer by Sun-Times Media. There she worked for almost 7 years covering memorable events such as the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the 2008 Olympic Trials for Track and Field in Eugene, Oregon, and Paul McCartney at Wrigley Field. During her tenure at Sun-Times Media, she earned 18 State and National Photojournalism awards. In the summer of 2012, Ruthie and her husband welcomed their first child, and she made the decision to give up her staff position to focus on her business and her new role as Mom. Ruthie and her husband now have two young sons and a huge cat. They try to live simply and enjoy outdoor recreation, live music, a good glass of wine and travel. In 2017, Ruthie and her family relocated from the Chicago area to Madison, WI. Before a long day of photography Ruthie's pre-game ritual includes 8+ hours of sleep, a burger, a playlist of Hall & Oates, and an iced white chocolate mocha. On assignment, Ruthie is usually doing whatever is necessary to get the best possible photo, whether it be sloshing through a ditch, balancing on the roof of a skyscraper, flying in a blimp or standing in a bathtub. She loves EVERY minute of it. Ruthie's goal is to go above and beyond for her clients while also capturing as much personality, life and storytelling in her images as possible.

THANK YOU for the most beautiful wedding photos. Brian and I just finished looking at them and they are absolutely stunning! You captured our day perfectly and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We loved working with you on our wedding! You are incredibly talented and we can't thank you enough. We have received so many compliments on our photos and how gorgeous they all are.
Romulo, Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding photos! We could not be happier with how they turned out. Your professionalism, ninja-like (as one of our guests put it) ability to be everywhere at once, and talent to take such authentic, candid photos was amazing. We would recommend you to anyone and come to you for any future events! Thank you so much! Andy and Rachel
Hi Romulo, Steph and I really enjoyed your work. Planning was easy, even though we were a couple of hours apart - you were very easy to get in touch with. At the wedding, we loved all the candid pictures - we thought they really captured the day well! We thought you were very discreet, especially at the church - which really made the ceremony feel special. It was so nice of you to stay later to wait for the first dance also. I think that really summed up the night - you stayed over your committed time, even though you had a two hour drive home! Great job Romulo! We will absolutely recommend you to our friends! Thanks again!
Romulo, We are so happy that we selected you as our wedding photographer. The photos turned out exceptionally well and you were able to capture a great combination of intimate, fun, and candid moments. We're really pleased with the balance of the "traditional" organized photos and the spontaneous shots that exhibit your photojournalistic style. Looking at the pictures is like reliving the best parts of the day. Beyond being an amiable person to work with, you are also extremely professional, punctual, and relaxed. Your suggestions were always spot-on and resulted in some very beautiful and artistic photographs. We can't wait to share them with our friends and family! Valerie and Kai
