I’ve had the privilege of working with an array of talented photographers from around the world and they’ve each taught me something different within the art of photography. From hiking a volcano in Guatemala alongside an award-winning photographer from the Netherlands, all the way to working amongst talented documentary photographers throughout Southeast Asia, I’ve learned all about the art of great storytelling. It was when I worked alongside an accomplished photojournalist in Alaska that I began to fully understand what storytelling was truly about. Watching this individual's creativity and passion for storytelling was inspiring; that’s when I truly developed a passion for capturing moments and telling the story of the people in them. It has been a humbling experience to work amongst so many talented professionals and they’ve each instilled a drive in me to "capture that perfect moment;” it is with this drive that I strive to photograph the authentic emotion and energy of your wedding day.

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. Romulo Ueda [Madison Wedding Photographer]
I started my award-winning photojournalism career in Boston shooting for The Boston Herald, Boston Red Sox, and Harvard University and have been shooting weddings and events here in Chicago since 2011. I love photographing weddings because I love telling stories. Few events lend themselves such an obvious beginning, middle, and end as weddings and fewer still feature wily grandmothers teaching The Wobble to their grandchildren or the quiet smile of a proud father. I capture great moments and tell unforgettable stories. Let me tell yours. [Chicago Wedding Photographer]

Travis is a graduate of Michigan State University and still points to the back of his hand to show people where he grew up. [Chicago Wedding Photographer]

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
We met with other photographers about a year ago, but they were either too aggressive or too passive and all fairly cliche. Not so with you. It's true that when we met you, we appreciated your laid-back vibe and promise that you wouldn't ask Sarah to stare plaintively out a window. But we didn't know you were masterful until we saw our engagement photos. We love the candidness and joy, even silliness, and the art. The shot of us standing in the Logan Square train vestibule, our illuminated backs to the lens, slightly elevated, with our reflection catching the opposite Plexiglas wall, behind which a sea of blues and purples bathe us is still Charles' desktop background. Your reconnaissance and eye for perfect light combined with your ease in assembling children and adults, we're sure, proved the right balance to allow us to enjoy the celebration while documenting it for perpetuity. Thank you for visiting parks weeks beforehand and getting in the mix - whether in a hot glass-blowing studio or nearly crushed in the center of the Hora - the day of. You're a trooper.
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
The photos we received were absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I could not have been happier with them, which is saying something because she hates all photos of herself. Also, we had some unexpected snow and freezing weather, but you made sure to make the outdoor shots as painless as possible. The snow ended up looking stunning in the photos too, so that was a silver lining. You're definitely a great photographer with a more artistic touch to your photos as well.
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
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!
