I love Krystal. There are not enough words to describe how wonderful and easy she is to work with. From the moment I met Krystal she just gives off an amazing energy and put my husband and I at ease. She was incredibly accommodating to what we were looking for in terms of packages and what she could offer us. We did an engagement shoot before the wedding and Krystal has an such an ability to make people feel natural in front of the camera. She's very talented, our pictures came out beautiful. On the day of the wedding she was so easy to work with and took all the pictures that I asked of her. She's also so responsive which is another amazing plus to working with her. I would highly recommend working with her.
We were so lucky to have found Krystal. We fell in love with her work and personality right from the start. It was like we had known her for years. She was open and flexible throughout the whole experience and captured each moment perfectly. Highly recommend!!
I cannot praise Krystal enough, and would highly recommend her to all future brides! Her photos themselves are beautiful, and she is incredibly communicative and responsive via email and phone. In-person, she is friendly and professional yet easy-going. She makes everyone feel very at ease.
Krystal was such a pleasure to work with and made the whole process easy and stress free! We did both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos with her and our photos are beyond beautiful! She really captured every special moment and then some! Not only did she get every photo on the shot list I requested, but she got many more than I ever could have expected.
She was 100% professional from beginning to end, and was so much fun to work with on the day of the wedding! I cannot thank her enough for going above and beyond on my special day. Simply put, I cannot recommend Krystal more highly!!
Krystal is wonderful! From our first phone call to discuss details, to our engagement photos, to our wedding day, she made everything easy, fun, and beautiful. She was flexible when things came up and did everything to make sure things ran smoothly. She is a very talented photographer and just all around nice person that we loved spending time with. She put in the extra effort to make sure we felt comfortable. We felt like we could trust her. The pictures came out perfect!
I knew from the moment I said YES that I wanted Krystal to be my photographer. I have been watching her passion for photography grow since the day she started. My husband and I had set up a meeting for he could meet her and he was instantly sold. She was always easy to get in touch with and was quick to answer any questions we had throughout the planning process.
Fast forward to the wedding day- Krystal and her assistance were beyond amazing (as I knew they'd be)! They were both personable and easy to work with. They were willing to work with us to get the shots we wanted and searched out areas and came up with ideas for shots they knew would work. I am someone who hates taking pictures and they made it easy and fun. It was nice to have someone who has a fresh eye and such an obvious passion for their work. I would recommend Krystal to anyone for any photography needs. I've only seen one picture so far and I am in love with it. I can't wait to see the rest of them.
Thank you Krystal-
Mike and Becca
Krystal is absolutely amazing. She is so personable and makes wedding and engagement pictures fun! My husband and I were pretty shy when we first met Krystal and told her how nervous /awkward we were. She instead made us hysterically laugh during every photo shoot and created beautiful work. I felt so relieved to see her on my wedding day. She showed up at our arranged time and could just see the stress on my face and helped talk me down. I was put at ease when I saw her and felt like we had made a friendship over all of this wedding planning. Krystal also was my biggest supporter and helped answer wedding questions that came up during my planning. I would recommend Krystal to everyone. She also does photography for maternity pictures so we will definitely be seeing her again. If you have any uncertainty about who to choose - just look at her timeliness, clean, and high quality pictures on her website. Love her! Love, the Centers
My FI and I were lucky enough to find Krystal and we are so happy that we found her! Krystal did our engagement photos, and from our first initial emails we knew that she really stood out from the rest. Krystal is extremely sweet, professional, responsive, and informative. She gave us suggestions for engagement locations and other tips when we asked her for advice, she was extremely knowledgeable, and also very flexible in terms of scheduling given that my FI and I work opposite shifts with ever changing weekends off. On the day of our engagement shoot she made us feel so comfortable -- it was more like hanging out with a friend for the day. She gave us great direction for how to pose and she is so pleasant and wonderful to be around. You can tell she truly loves what she does and she has such a great eye for photography. Within an hour of our session ending she sent us a little snippet of photos from the shoot. We got back out photos amazingly fast within a week, and the rest of our photos in a week and a half beautifully edited in a beautiful light, airy, natural style. Photos were so easy to view and download. We couldn't be happier with the entire process from start to finish. Krystal is a true talent and absolutely amazing -- we highly recommend her!!
Krystal was absolutely amazing throughout our entire wedding planning process. Her overall professionalism left us feeling like we were in the best-of-hands from the moment we reached out to her, to the weeks leading up to our wedding, and even the weeks following our wedding. She is exactly the type of person you want to be sharing your wedding day with. She capture every detail of our wedding and we are thrilled with the finished product! I can not recommend her enough!
All I can say is AMAZING! From the minute you contact her she is always available to you and on your big day she makes you feel like your wedding is the most beautiful one she's ever seen! One of the best wedding decisions we made was hiring Krystal!!! THANK YOU KRYSTAL!
Krystal was amazing! From the first time I spoke with her I never felt like I was just working with someone we hired, it was always as if I was talking to an old friend who I'd known for years. She was so easy to work with and her photos are just amazing. If there's one thing I could redo over and over again; other than marrying my husband; it would be hiring her!
Krystal is such an amazing photographer! From the minute we met her, she made us feel comfortable and confident. My fiance and I aren't used to being in front of a camera, but Krystal did such an amazing job capturing our love for our engagement shoot. I highly recommend Krystal to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer to capture their special moments! You won't be disappointed!
Krystal is beyond what we could have asked for. She is so warm and friendly and overall really easy to work with. We felt instantly comfortable when we met her. Knowing how beautiful our engagement shoot came out, we were very excited for her to shoot our wedding. She exceeded our expectations and delivered absolutely gorgeous photos! She captures the most natural moments. We have been receiving so many compliments. Also, her turn around time is so quick. We got married 2 1/2 weeks ago and she already has our blog post up. We really can't recommend her enough!
Krystal was a professional in all sense of the word. She captured beautiful pictures and moments of the day that we will forever cherish. Each and every photo left us in awe, and we could have have asked for better memories
Working with Krystal was an absolute dream, from our engagement session over a year before our wedding until the moment we received our completed and edited photos just weeks after our wedding day, every aspect of working with her was perfect. She maintained complete professionalism while also displaying excitement about every aspect of our day. As an exhausted bride I fed off of her enthusiasm throughout the wedding day. She captured our personal details more beautifully than I could have imagined and patiently managed our party-ready bridal party for our necessary group photos.
I cannot imagine having a different photographer of more perfect images to carry with us into our marriage.
Krystal is amazing!!! She captured photos of my fiance proposing to me, and they were amazing. She sent them to us immediately. She is sweet and extremely professional. I highly recommend her!!!!!
Krystal is absolutely amazing!!! I can't say enough about what an incredible person she is. I couldn't be happier with our decision to use her as our wedding photographer. She is extremely flexible, professional and just an overal wonderful person. She makes you her priority not just the day of your wedding but during the planning process as well. We also did our engagement photos with her so we could have some practice prior to our wedding. She was so much fun and made it so easy for us to feel comfortable. Our wedding was on Memorial Day weekend so a busy time for all and Krystal just made things so easy for us. Our photos came out incredible. I have no words for what she does. We also received our photo album and it's beyond perfect. I will be using Krystal for all of our other photography needs that we will have in the future. Love love love!!!!
Not only is Krystal an absolutely amazing person to work with as a professional, her photography skills are beyond compare! How she managed to capture not only the events, but the feeling of my wedding day is beyond me. I was brought to tears (of joy!) going through my wedding photos and all of the wonderful feelings of our wedding day was brought back to me. Krystal is talented and her packages are very affordable. She was very accommodating to me as the packages that she offers did not quite fit what I was looking for so she add this and took that away to make it just what I needed. Be smart and hire Krystal to capture your magical day! Be warned, my sister-in-law hired a different photographer, then saw my photos and was angry with herself for not choosing Krystal. The entire family decided that she will forever be our family photographer!!!
All I can say is WOW! I wish I could give a million times more stars for Krystal's rating. From chatting about ideas to the completed photos I was truly amazed. She captured exactly what we were hoping to have in our photos and she did it with flair. We had a horrible experience with our booked photographer back home, so when we traveled to New York for a vacation I decided to seek out a new photographer to redo our engagement photos. Krystal is energetic, fun, and extremely talented. She made us feel comfortable even though we are not the best with photos. She gave amazing direction and was constantly snapping photos with different angels and views. We went to several locations and had a fun time capturing unique shots. She worked with our own ideas and had plenty of her own to share. It was truly a collaborative experience with a very artistic and talented person.
Last, but certainly not least, her skill with lighting is phenomenal!! It's fresh, vibrant and looks so authentic. I cannot say enough great things about her and her wonderful talent. If you are looking to capture truly beautiful and memorable photos you'll never stop looking at then you need to hire Krystal. I have a difficult time liking myself in photos and I absolutely cannot stop smiling over the end result. We look natural and happy, but most importantly we look like ourselves and our personality as a couple shines through. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!!!! :)
Krystal was the perfect person for an intimate wedding that we had with our families. She has a great eye, very professional, and well organized. Also, she has the heart and passion as a photographer. One can always sense if a person treats their profession as a job or as a passion, and Krystal is definitely the latter. She's patient, she's kind, and she's all about love. My husband and I were looking at all the photos she took on our wedding day and it was like re-living that day. Krystal's photos have a way of putting you back in that moment of time. We hope to look at the photos for years to come and reminisce about how wonderful our wedding day was, and so grateful for Krystal's eye - for capturing moments and leaving us with great memories.

Krystal was amazing. Having only spoken online previously, as soon as we met she was so personable and easy to get on with. Her calm and professional manor really put us at ease. We had our own ideas of what we wanted, but her wealth of knowledge and creativity as a photographer and as a local from New York really helped. I have only seen one picture yet but I am already so happy with the results. I can't thank Krystal enough for making a special day even more special and I really hope to work with her again. Amazingly talented young woman xxx
Working with Krystal was an absolute pleasure. We received her recommendation through a friend. Once we met her for our complimentary engagement session in Manhattan, we knew we'd made the right decision. So full of energy, had great ideas for what pictures to take, and had so much passion for what she did.
On our wedding day, Krystal was amazing. The way she organized us through what could have been a very hectic session of family photos was tremendous and extremely efficient.
And last, but certainly not least, are the pictures themselves. Brilliant is the word that comes to mind. She captured our wedding day so perfectly, and so beautifully. In fact, my younger sister the pics from my wedding, and immediately booked Krystal for her wedding next June. If that's not a ringing endorsement of Krystal's great work, then I don't know what is.
There are so many details to worry about when you plan a wedding. If you book Krystal, the last detail you'll need to worry about are the pictures. It's taken care of. So professional, courteous, and just extremely easy to work with.
Krystal is amazing to work with. She is an amazing photographer.
The best part is that she gave us the photos within a week which was awesome.
She will make you feel so comfortable. I would love to work with her again ??
Krystal is the most down to earth person in this world! She will make you feel totally comfortable! I wouldn't recommend anyone but her!!! I can not until she can photograph us again!
Krystal is both professional and fun to work with. She was easy to communicate with prior to the wedding and helped us to come up with an approximate timeline of events. And of course, the shots she got of our wedding and reception were beautiful. We would highly recommend her. In fact, Krystal also did my sister's wedding photography two years ago, and my other sister's engagement photos a week after my own wedding! Thanks, Krystal, for everything!
Krystal shined from our first interaction through her diligent follow through after our happy wedding. She took the time to understand us as a couple and manifest who we are in not only her photography but also in her communications and management style throughout the process.Krystal exceeded all of what we were looking for, including:
Demonstrated talent for wedding photography
Established expert in wedding photography
Extraordinary communication skills
Exemplary ownership and accountability
Ability to lead a team
Ability to collaborate effectively with other vendors
Overall I would highly recommend Krystal. The reviews she already has are so positive, but we have the sense that she is only getting better as she continues to develop her skills and grow more experience. We are so happy with her professionalism, her talent, her communication, and her authentic personality. There was no one better to photograph our special day, and we are so thankful for her fantastic work.
