Meet Crystal

I am a portrait and wedding photographer located north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although I call this home, I love to experience new places and scenery! If I could tell you only one thing about me it would be that, I think you are beautiful. When I see you in front of my camera, kissing your babies, or giving your husband that look that only you and him know, I see only the beauty that God has put in all of us.

I am married to an amazing man, and mama to three young boys. 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 shoot. Showing them what it is like to love your life is so important to me. Together the boys and I chase storms, run in the rain and drive to waterfalls all for a great photograph so they can remember their fleeting childhood.

I love to find beautiful luminous light, and capture honest, simple moments that define who you are.  I also have a beautiful natural light home studio in Cambridge, MN.
