Crystal's photographs provide a timelessness, yet a candid approach.

Crystal creates authentic images that can be felt, not only seen. She embraces the imperfect & authenticity. Her work is finished with light and bright editing to stay true to your day, your family and your story, allowing it to stay timeless. Paired with an exceptional client experience that exceeds your expectations. She makes her clients feel comfortable & confident to have real and authentic images for your lifetimes (and beyond). She has fallen in love with capturing wedding days and motherhood stories not only for the beauty of it but for the opportunity to storytell in an artistic flare. She is inspired by fashion, travel and love. When working with clients and planners she has a thoughtful vision for each and every client. Mixed with an unmatched client experience. She draws inspiration from fashion, travel, small quaint mountain and beach town & her favorite store- Anthropologie.


When I'm behind my camera I am inspired by light, editorial, style and human connection.   As every love story is unique I pride myself in a thoughtful client experience to truly learn the wants and needs of my clients to deliver a seam experience to tell their unique legacy and should be treated as so.  

I spend my free time exploring new quaint beach and mountain towns with my husband, Justin.  When we are not traveling we enjoy updating our home together.   Our perfect evening at home would be enjoying a meal, and a cocktail in our backyard on a warm summer evening.  

I specialize in heartfelt wedding weekends in iconic destinations.  I am centrally located n Denver, Colorado servicing our beautiful Rocky Mountains but have also worked coast to coast & the Hawaii Islands if you are up for an adventure. 

I have a team of lovely associates that work under me if I am booked as I take on a limited number of events each month to give each client the experience they deserve. 

I cannot wait to hear from you, learn about your legacy and start creating something beautiful together.  

xo, Crystal

The lovely associate team

About the Associates

Our associate program was built with our treasured clients in mind. As my business grew, I quickly realized how few summer Saturdays there are during wedding season and how just how many couples I had to turn down after I was booked with another couple. As we are unique in the fact of providing a high touch experience with our trademarked editing style that so many of our couples book us for, it was important to have consistency across the board when building our associate team.

It was important to add ladies to my team that share the same passion for loving and serving clients as I do. They are trained professionals that carry that same quality of equipment and are trained under me. I will still be your point of contact throughout the process and will handle all post production of your images. However, my associate will serve you at your session date & wedding day.

Colorado Native

01 of 04

I find most of my clients are planning destination weddings. Many couples want to celebrate with their loved ones and show them a place they love so much. As a Colorado native based in a destination market, I love to help my clients navigate through all of the planning logistics that having a mountain destination wedding includes.  

Authentic Posing

I deliver images that you can feel. Working closely with my client though the experience lets you be relaxed and truly enjoy the experience allowing your personality shine through with some light direction I am able to deliver images that feel like you. 

Marriage is special

Marriage is such a beautiful thing and something so special to me. I’ve built a business around the most treasured seasons of your life. As I’ve walked through those seasons, I know how special they truly are and how important those memories are to you. 

Family Heirlooms

04 of 04

I full heartedly believe photos are meant to live in print and are meant to be shown on your walls and in albums to show your loved ones and future children a home of happiness and love. After your wedding I will walk you though the album design process to get your first family heirloom in your home.
