Madison, Wisconsin photojournalist, turned wedding photographer,  Ruthie Hauge

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.

Omaha Wedding Photography by Janine Cooper in Nebraska.

Janine has been photographing weddings in the Omaha area for 15 years! She is inspired by silly people, endearing mothers, and adorable grandpas. She is skilled in photographing people in their element and getting a good laugh out of just about anyone. You can often find Janine "swinging from the fences" to get her amazing shots...literally and figuratively. It's not uncommon for her to climb a tree or to the top of a car to where she needs to be. In Janine's "downtime" you can find her loving her husband and four kids, going on long runs, and laughing with her lady friends. [Omaha Wedding Photographer]

Imagine yourself on your 25th anniversary and you and your spouse are looking through your wedding album. When I shoot your wedding, you will remember all of the feelings from the day because you will see those feelings in the photographs. You will see the love and joy in both of your eyes, and you will see the excitement in the faces of your friends and family." [Minneapolis Wedding Photographer]
