Q) What is your background and education?
A) My photography education is from the University of Missouri – Columbia, where I earned my Master of Arts degree in Photojournalism. My background as a photographer is varied. I have worked in commercial photography studios, and as a newspaper photojournalist at a number of different newspapers in Missouri, Michigan, and Washington state.

Q) What does “photojournalistic style” mean?
A) In my case, it means that I shoot much of your wedding as a documentary photographer. I focus on the feelings and emotions of your wedding as it happens naturally instead of setting everything up. Ideally, you can forget about me for most of your wedding and focus on enjoying it.

Some photographers use the keyword photojournalistic in a very elastic manner and without any regard to journalism, so it is good to look at pictures that they say are photo-journalistic, to see what they really mean.

Q) Do you shoot outdoor weddings?
A) Yes.

Q) Do you shoot winter weddings?
A) Yes.

Q) Do we need to have a meal for you and your assistant at our wedding reception?
A) Yes. Because we are with you and your wedding party for the majority of your day, a meal at dinner is necessary to continue working productively. Additionally, we should be given our meals at the same time as (or directly after) the bride and groom and wedding party, so that we can continue photographing you and your reception as soon as we have finished eating.

Q) What does dpi mean?
A) Dpi means dots per inch. The higher the number, the greater the detail in the photo.
