Jud  McCrehin

Hello my name is Jud McCrehin. I am an award-winning professional photojournalist and have been for over 23 years. I started working as a professional photographer in 1992 at a newspaper in a little town in Montana. I was the only photographer and was responsible for shooting every single image in the newspaper everyday. Today, I work as a photo editor for USA TODAY and am responsible for images in the news section and page 1. As a photo editor at the nation's largest newspaper I see thousands and thousands of images daily.

I use my experiences as a photographer and photo editor to produce unique, creative and storytelling images of weddings around the country and world. I shoot a limited number of weddings each year so I don't develop a formula and become a cookie cutter photographer. I want each wedding to show the character of its bride, groom, guests and venue.

I use state of the art cameras, lenses, lights, remotes etc. to create storytelling images. I use redundant systems so your wedding coverage will not be affected by equipment malfunctions.

    You were so fun to work with! You blended in so well that we forgot you were there. Your pictures really caught the feelings and emotions of our day; I felt like I was living it all over again when I looked through them. Thanks so much for making our special day even better!

    We were thrilled with the photos that you took of our rehearsal party and wedding. The photos, in particular the portraits, are both more vibrant and more thoughtful than traditional wedding photos and we will treasure them. Many of our guests commented on how unobtrusive you were at the ceremony and what a great host you were at the photo booth set-up, during the reception. We were happy to have you as part of our wedding and our photos really capture the spirit of the whole weekend. Thanks again for everything!

    You were fantastic!!! Before our wedding you were very open to questions, directions, requests for particular photos and during the wedding you did everything we expected and more. Most of the time I never noticed you were there, but whenever I thought about wanting a photo of a moment, I would turn around and there you were. I never had to worry that our wedding day wasn't going to be fully documented and every moment captured. We also got wonderful feedback from our families and guests who said you were courteous and fun. We would recommend you to anyone interested in getting a play-by-play of their wedding day or special event from every angle. You're a master at your craft!

    As soon as we met you, we knew that you were the right man for the job. You completely understood our aesthetic (urban, fun, and non-traditional) and your photo-journalistic style was exactly what we were looking for. The day was a blur but you made sure to get all of the critical shots and a whole lot more. Your photos included posed portraits, photo-booth shots (which are priceless!), and candids that reflected the best and funniest moments of the day, some of which we had completely missed. You're a great guy and talented photographer. We recommend you without hesitation.

    You were a great photographer for our wedding. You were unobtrusive while still seeming to get great pictures of all the important big and little moments. You are a complete professional and I never had to worry about what you were shooting or where you were. You also have a great demeanor and wonderful patience for those inevitable staged group/family photos. Even my mother-in-law was impressed with you, which is saying a lot!!! Also and just as importantly the photos were fantastic. You got all the details and really captured the wedding in an artistic and timeless way. I would absolutely recommend you!

    You are an excellent photographer, easy to work with, and very professional. You captured our wedding perfectly, both the portraits and the candid shots. The candid shots in particular were important to us, as we wanted someone who could really capture the feel of the ceremony and celebration as they happened, beyond your typical posed portraits. You really came through here, working hard to successfully capture tons of small memories throughout the evening, your background as a photojournalist shone through. Not only did you do a great job, but you was extremely unobtrusive as you maneuvered through the crowd, and many of our guests spoke positively about your professionalism and upbeat demeanor. We also have to give you credit for your photo booth setup, which produced some of our favorite shots from the entire day. Great execution of a great idea. All in all, we're very pleased with the quality of your work and strongly recommend you for those who really want to capture not just how your special day looked, but how it felt.

    You did an excellent job covering our wedding. We always had the sense that you were around, but we were never posed or pushed into a photo. You were very easy going and professional, and when we got our pictures we were absolutely delighted! All our special moments were captured with several shots to choose from, as were some moments we didn't even know had happened till we saw the pictures. Everyone who looked at our pictures had the same "these are awesome" reaction and we'd like to thank you for capturing our special day.

    It was a pleasure working with you during our wedding. You have a great personality and were always willing to take all the pictures we wanted. During our ceremony and reception we hardly noticed you were there, which was great because you could take all the pictures and we could just focus on our wedding day. You're great to work with and really took the time to make sure you met all of our photography needs.
