hi there, I’m Crystal

Welcome & thank you for visiting

I will keep my introduction short and sweet. I have been a photographer for over 15 years now, it all started in my high school darkroom (the days of film). Live, Love, Capture, the photographic process is my heart and soul. I am pretty crafty, I love to cook, football runs through my veins, I’m obsessed with my 2 pit bulls, and I’m completely in love with my adorable husband. He’s the handsome one in that photo with me, top left – isn’t he SO adorable?!  So that’s me, in a nutshell.

Now, let’s talk about you

Wedding photography starts with me getting to know YOU and making an intimate, passionate documentary of one of the most beautiful days in your life.

Let’s talk about your vision; whether the emphasis is on fashion, family, photojournalism, portraiture or all of the above. I have the experience to guide you towards ways of conveying the heirlooms you have in your head, whimsically and beautifully. A wedding requires so much or your time and effort to plan, what takes months to perfect is over so quickly. After the cake is eaten and the bouquet is thrown, photographs preserve the details. Moments you might not even be aware of as they are happening can be captured for you to relive and enjoy over and over.

My approach as a wedding photographer is to be invisible, I don’t want to influence any of those moments.  I want to document your wedding day in an honest and creative way. Please take a few minutes to look at my online portfolio. If an image resonates with you that is a perfect starting point for our dialogue.

I usually photograph weddings solo, but that adorable husband of mine is super talented and if you want a second photographer he will gladly oblige. Oh, husband’s name is Justin. We are a fantastic team! It always takes us back and reminds us of our wedding and love story. Believe us, we know how precious these moments are to you. And we believe love is love, we welcome ALL couples.

Available in WNC & beyond

Our beautiful Western North Carolina Mountains are the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Whether you are perched over the Asheville skyline or behind a high pasture, a sense of place matters. We are available to you in all the Ashevilles as well as Hendersonville, Black Mountain, Fairview and beyond. And if you wish to be married in Puerto Rico or Paris, we can be there too.

It is such an honor when I’m chosen to photograph a couple’s wedding. Let’s grab some coffee together, or a beer, I want to hear how you two fell in love. Together we can capture your love story and I promise it will be so much fun!
