Hi, I am Crystal!

Hi! My name is Crystal and I am a photographer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but I love to travel! Dylan, my husband, and I moved here from Florida in 2018 to start a new adventure with our three dogs. We LOVE the desert!

When we moved I went into my business full time. Technically I do not only do photography, I walk dogs for people during the weekdays too (there are a lot of dogs in my life, lol). But, I am full time self-employed, woo-hoo! This is something that I had wanted to do for a while and I love how it allows me to give my full attention to my couples and respond and help you quickly instead of waiting to get home from my 9-5 job.

About two months after moving we eloped in Sedona and it was the most magical day in the world! My sister came as a witness, and her husband got ordained online for us. They were the only guests, except for our photographers of course! We hired a husband and wife team, and one of them was the second witness for us. After eloping it made me even more in love with elopements and helping others with their elopement or intimate wedding. 

Many people ask me how long I have been doing photography, the answer is the cheesy one... "forever". I have always been interested in cameras, always had random disposable cameras, and in high school I completed the photo 1-4 classes by my second year, which were all film! I did not learn Photoshop or anything digital until my job after I graduated and worked there for 6 years doing product photography before we moved. I was also going to college full time getting my photography, business, and psychology degrees.

That is all for now guys, I cannot wait for us to get to know each other more and create rad memories that you will be able to look back on forever!

From the mountains

to the beaches, we love it all.
