I am so glad you are here! I am Crystal, an elopement and portrait photographer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico specializing in anything and everything couples! I'd love to hear more about you two and help you get married!

"Crystal and her husband were the best. From the initial meeting to the wedding ceremony, Crystal was a great person to work with. Quickly responded to my e-mails, texts and phone calls. Beautiful photos of our wedding, captured every moment! Would highly recommend her and her husband. Would definitely use them again!! Thank you!" -Benita

Local 2.5 hour Packages starting at $2200

Deciding to elope is a huge decision and congrats on making it that far! Just because you are eloping or having a smaller wedding than what is seen as a "norm", doesn't mean you don't deserve as much on your day!

You can truly do whatever you want for your elopement. Think about where you want to go and what you want to do. If there is an activity that you love to do together, consider incorporating that in your day. Do you like climbing, off-roading, hiking, eating pizza? Do it! 

I will hype you up for whatever decisions you make!

Elopements are just as important as traditional weddings and deserve no less when it comes to documenting your day!

Elopements + Intimate Weddings

"Crystal was amazing to work with! She was incredibly responsive and attentive, and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Her photo's are absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. She really captured the essence of our unique, beautiful tiny wedding." -Anna

All photography packages include an online edited gallery within 4-5 weeks, including 80-100 images per shooting hour. 

"At a time where it seemed my elopement no longer was about me, she reminded me of what marriage truly was about, and reminded me the only 2 people that mattered was me and my hubby." -Jessyca

"First of all, I reached out to Crystal on Instagram and she got right back to me within minutes. We had a date all set for our engagement shoot in a week! I knew I liked her vibe/coloring in her photos, but was blown away by the actual product. She was so much fun to work with, had a great location picked out for us, and even helped us wrangle our black lab puppy during the shoot :) her pricing is insanely amazing for the quality and I would recommend her to anyone!" -Shelby

Engagement photo shoots are one of my favorites because it is a stress free time for you two before your elopement or wedding. You can be creative and spontaneous about where you want to go and what you want to do. We can do whatever you are up for; go to a rad location outdoors or out of town, the first place you met or went on a date, a brewery, or even a walk through your neighborhood!

I am here to assist you as much or as little as possible for your engagement shoot. If you need help with outfits or finding a location, I have many resources and options to send your way. I want your engagement photos to be something you will look back on forever to remember this special time of your lives.

Whether you are engaged, celebrating an anniversary or just because, let's create beautiful and unique memories!

Engagements + Just Because

"Crystal is THE BEST photographer I have ever met. Moving to a new city and finding someone to do our engagements again was so scary to me! But I found her on Instagram and fell in love with her work! Not only is she extremely talented, she is seriously the SWEETEST person on earth. She made everything so easy! Not to mention she didn’t make me feel awkward about being myself which is great because I’m kinda weird, loud, and laugh A LOT. I’m so happy I booked her! I cannot wait for her to shoot my wedding in June!" - Cassi

All photography packages include an online edited gallery within 1-2 weeks, including 80-100 images per shooting hour. 

"Crystal is an incredible artist. Her photos are stunning and she has a knack for capturing raw, intimate details of each moment. She is professional, timely and reliable. She is also a lot of fun to work alongside. She came up with great location and pose suggestions and most of all--she made us comfortable and she made us smile in the most natural of ways. We are so grateful we had her to capture our precious moment and we will definitely be back the next time we need a photographer." -Myeda

I offer an add on for a mini 'lifestyle' newborn session with my maternity packages. My newborn sessions are not your typical studio shoots with silly props though. My sessions are more about documenting you with your new baby. Whether we do it in your home or outdoors, capturing your baby when they are the tiniest they will ever be is so special.

Expecting a child is a very exciting!! If it is your first child, this is the last time it is just you and your partner together before you add on to your family. Even if it is your fifth child, it is still a huge step in your life that deserves documenting and remembering forever!

Photographing couples is my jam, even with a baby bump in the middle of you! I love learning about all of the unique love stories and relationships this world has to offer at any stage of your life or relationship.

For scheduling maternity sessions, I always recommend shooting about a month and a half before the due date. This allows your belly to get big, but also it is not cutting it too close in case someone decides to arrive super early! Though, pregnancies are all different, so I am always prepared to be flexible for my soon to be mamas!

Lifestyle Newborns sessions

You're only holding your baby for 9 months, let's capture that special short time in your life!

Maternity + Newborn

"We’ve worked with Crystal every year for our family photos, and she does such an amazing job! She has a way of getting the perfect photos in the perfect lighting, even with uncooperative toddlers and crazy dogs! I'm always amazed at how incredible our pictures are when we get them back. I love every photo session we have with Crystal!" -Charlie

All photography packages include an online edited gallery within 1 week, including 80-100 images per shooting hour.
