No two couples are the same and that means no two weddings are the same. So for that reason, I customize everything based on what YOU need. No pdfs or pricing sheets for weddings- we’ll start with a base package and we add on to it based on our conversations and what YOU’LL need for your day. We can add on a second shooter, engagement session, boudoir session, extra hours, Photo Booth services and lots more fun stuff to make you a completely personalized wedding photography package.
With that being said, I understand budgets. I know weddings are not cheap. But at the end of the day, all you have left is your photos and my couples say that photography is the best investment they can make. In turn, I invest tens of thousands of dollars in gear and backup gear, insurance, licenses, storage, software, education etc. to be my best for you. Along with that, I spend countless hours before, during and after your wedding to make sure every penny you spend with me is worth it. Wedding Magazines, same day sneak peeks, and a super fast turnaround time are just a few things I like to brag about!
If you like what you see but afraid you can’t afford it- reach out anyway! There is always some wiggle room (especially on off days or off season!) and at the end of the day I am not in this for the money. Please keep in mind I still have a family to provide for and run a business but I LOVE my job- if you truly value what I do, I’d love to try to make something work.
Have you ever been shopping at Publix? It is incredible. When you walk in you’re greeted with a smile and every once in a while an employee asks “how may I help you?” There is complimentary cookies at the bakery and even fruit at the fruit stands. There is a cashier standing at the end of the aisle to let you know their lane is open. When you’re done checking out, someone helps you to your car, loads your groceries and asks you how your day is going.
Have you ever been food shopping at Walmart? Yes you can probably find the same products for a little bit cheaper but the carts are always broken, you can’t ever find an employee (and when you do you feel like you’re inconveniencing them), there’s only ever 2 lanes available and lines that can be an hour long. Is it worth the cheaper price? Honestly, sometimes. I buy diapers at Walmart. But for the important things I love the experience that Publix gives me. “Where shopping is a pleasure” is their motto. I like to compare myself to Publix- YES you can probably find a cheaper price, but I love to go over the top for my clients and give them an experience that makes them happy they “shopped” with me, because of the product AND my service!
From a logistics standpoint, she was very straightforward and informative when we began asking about her services. Krystal was understanding of our budget and did everything she could to work with our expectations!
She was amazing to work with from the time we hired her through our wedding day; to this day, we still chat regularly! We hired her for both engagement and wedding pictures and she did not disappoint. She sent us previews of both, leaving us eager to receive the full albums! We knew we met the real deal when she did our engagement pictures at EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT. In the summer. In Florida. Truly Super Woman! We received both engagement pictures and wedding pictures in a timely manner and were simply blown away with our images. Krystal allowed me to plan my happy butt off and was super flexible with my type A personality on the big day! Any questions, concerns, or additions we had, Krystal answered them right away! While she is serious about her business and will do ANYTHING to get THE shot, Krystal knows how to make her couples comfortable and has fun with it! Not only have we gained a go-to photographer, but we've gained a lifetime friend!
I don’t think I have ever written a review for anything in my life before but this lady DESERVES IT. Wedding planning is stressful, make it easier by choosing Krystal. My husband and I immediately felt a connection the first time we met with Krystal via FaceTime (she was texting me from the hospital after just having a baby) and the chemistry was instantaneous.
She understood us 100% and we felt like we just met a friend rather than a wedding vendor. Our engagement photos were to die for. The weather was questionable but Krystal was an absolute pro and turned the stormy clouds into a perfect romantic backdrop. It was so easy to open up and be ourselves with her and it showed in our photos.
Also, it’s worth noting that I am writing this review before I have even seen our wedding photos. That’s how much faith I put in her. At our wedding she was such a rockstar. I felt a huge sense of relief as soon as she arrived, and I completely trusted her to take over. She handled everything with such professionalism, but also so much fun and personality. She went above and beyond her photographer responsibilities the entire day.
