Crystal is amazing! Honestly, the beauty and quality of her photography are only one part of having her as your photographer. She became a member of our bridal party and because she does so many weddings, she knew the questions to ask that I wasn't asking. This helped make sure that everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. She doesn't limit herself to only worrying about your photography. When going over our wedding day schedule, she felt our site coordinator was giving too much time for people to eat. So, she mentioned it and sure enough, the coordinator agreed she had made a mix-up in the schedule. I never would have thought to ask if 1 hour of "eating" time was too much, but Crystal knew right away when she looked at the schedule. This just shows that when you work with her, her concern is helping make sure you have the day of your dreams.
That said, her true and prime goal is to capture your special day just as you want it. She asks questions I never dreamed of answering, all geared toward helping her capture our wedding day in the style we wanted. She included an engagement session to help us get comfortable in front of the camera. This was so helpful because neither of us LOVE having our photos taken. It put us more at ease with ourselves and her on our wedding day.
As far as her photography--she does a phenomenal job! There is a reason she is booked almost every weekend of the year--she is AMAZING and by booking her you get more than just a photographer. Her photography speaks for itself, so take a look at her website. After that, call her immediately to book your date before someone else gets to her!
