Meet Crystal

I am a portrait and wedding photographer located just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I wake up each morning make a chai latte and drive my kids to school, before the day gets going you would find me outside barefoot in the cold grass (when it’s not winter) watching my dogs run free. I love wrapping up in a chunky sweater and being in nature.

I am married to an amazing man, and have three beautiful sons. They keep me busy and inspired. They see how much I love what I do and they see joy every time I get home from a photoshoot. Showing them what it is like to love your life is so important to me.

I love to find beautiful luminous light, and capture honest, simple moments that define who you are. I find great joy in capturing others lives. I also love to travel to new states and locations for sessions.  If desired, I have a beautiful natural light home studio in Cambridge, MN.
