Myth: Wedding photojournalists do not take portraits or posed photographs.

I can assure you that we do take portraits, if that is what you want. I have had clients that want a few hours spent on portraits during the wedding day and clients that only want the essential family photos taken. The style of portraits is often more relaxed and natural than what you would see with a traditional wedding photographer. (It is also more fun ;)   )

Myth: Photojournalists do not use flash.

I love using available light but, sometimes you have to use flash. I often use flash to fill in shadows while maintaining the natural ambiance of the situation.

Myth: Wedding photojournalists never alter scenes or crop their images so the pictures look cluttered.

Just like many other photojournalist I do not like to alter the scene. I will however move around so that many distracting element do not show up in the pictures. I move around as much as possible to get different angles. I also take pictures knowing that it will need to be cropped because it will look great as a square.

Myth: Photojournalists do not take pictures of details.

I love details!!
