Classic Wedding Photojournalism

About Marcus Krause

Marcus Krause, Classic Wedding Photojournalist | Marcus Krause PhotographyWhile working on my undergraduate degree in advertising at the University of Alabama, in the mid 80’s I decided to take a photojournalism class. Immediately I was fascinated with the camera and the whole darkroom process. It wasn’t long before I was shooting for the school newspaper, which led to a position with one of the major wire services.

Shooting sports at Alabama was a great way to improve my photographic skills. That was in the days of manual focusing and developing your own film in a darkroom. It required technical knowledge of your equipment and quick decisions under pressure as well as resourcefulness. All of this prepared me well for my career photographing weddings.

I moved to Atlanta in 1988 to see if I could make it as a free-lance photographer. My intention was to take architectural and industrial assignments but I got talked into shooting a wedding and found that I loved the challenge.

A few years later I crossed paths with my college sweetheart and I realized that life does not offer such second chances often. I not only got a bride but two bride’s maids. In 1997 we were blessed with another daughter.

Here I am 20 plus years later still loving the challenge and satisfaction that weddings bring. I am still shooting commercial assignments but it is hard to beat the feeling of watching a bride and groom viewing their wedding album for the first time.
