i'm Crystal, an often excited, always passionate wedding and lifestyle photographer focused on giving good vibes for life through playful photography experiences.
I got my first camera when I was eight and I took pictures of everything! I was always ‘that friend’ who felt the need to document all of the good times and I have years of photo albums to prove it. I started photographing people and events in Los Angeles in 2015 before expanding into my home state of Florida in 2017 and now I’m SUPER lucky, because I get to travel back and forth between two great beach states. Southern California and Florida are my primary markets, but I'm always looking for an excuse to travel. ;)
I absolutely LOVE photographing people who aren't afraid to be themselves.
I’m a fan of capturing all of the goofy, messy, beautiful, wild free-spirited energy people can hold. If you dance to your own soundtrack and ignore what other people say, because it's fun to color outside of the lines and create your own traditions, then there’s a good chance we will have an awesome time together!
I love music of all kinds, (my Spotify playlists are all over the place) but the 90's and early 00's are really my jam (with a hint of the best from the 80's of course). And don't even get me started on Gilmore Girls. I've watched the entire series at least four times by now. I had a chihuahua with a sassy attitude named Lily and she was the furry love of my life (obviously). I miss her every single day, but her memory continues with each photo I take. I have a serious love for animals and I'd probably have a farm if I could swing it. So, if you have animals you want in your photos, I'll be pretty happy about it. (Except snakes. I absolutely don't do snakes.)
I like to have fun (because girls just wanna have fun, right?!) and be in the moment with you, because it helps me to ease you into that photo ready space to get the most out of our time together, because let's be real--not all of us are born with that camera ready comfort and we don't all know what to do with our hands (and that's totally fine!) so if you're worried about being awkward—don͛'t. Trust me when I say ͚I've got you!͛ and I will work with you so you can actually get some photos that are Instagram worthy.
As someone who knows what it's like to have a not-so-great, uncomfortable photography experience; making sure you love yours is my number one priority.
When you work with me, I'm all about you!
