From the very beginning to the end, Crystal Klar Photography was WONDERFUL. From the search process and accessing Crystal's website and Facebook page, to our first meeting with Crystal, to our engagement photo session, to our engagement photos, to our pre-wedding... Read More communication, to the day of experience to receiving our wedding photos, Crystal was so wonderful to work with. When we were searching for a photographer for our wedding, we really appreciated how well put together and how much information was provided both on Crystal's website and her Facebook page. She had everything you wanted to know laid out and had so many wonderful samples of her photography available. You know exactly what to expect and you get exactly what you're expecting! When we first met with Crystal, we could tell that she had her stuff together and that her business and her work meant a lot to her. She was so nice and informative and we couldn't wait to work with her. Our engagement session was fun and professional at the same time. We got all of the photos we wanted and she really took our input and suggestions into account while not leaving too much up to us at the same time. Crystal was so great the day of the wedding. I arrived at the venue after getting my hair done and she was already there getting shots of the venue. She was so helpful in keeping things on track and making sure we stayed on time. When I couldn't remember what to do, she was there to remind me of what was next. When I was panicked because I forgot my lipstick or when guests started to arrive early she was so great in keeping me calm and bringing my focus back to what we were doing. She was the perfect mix of friendly, fun and professional. She really got the job done and was great to be around that day. When I forgot something, she remembered it. She really knows not only her photography but also the nuances of wedding day "chaos"! Crystal's communication before the wedding and after the wedding was great. I never worried that I wouldn't hear back from Crystal. She was always on top of her communication. She told us when we could expect our sneak peak photo. When she sent us that, she let us know when we could expect to see all of our photos from her as well, and she delivered right when she said she would. The photos were everything we hoped for and more. The moments she captured when I didn't even know she was there are priceless. She's so wonderful at capturing candid moments and capturing everyone in their best way. The posed pictures were also wonderful. She followed everything that we wanted and captured some really great scenery behind us too. She really worked with the people and location to get the best photos that day. We love all of the photos and are so thankful to Crystal for the work that she did, the memories we'll have forever and for her management of all of the details of the day, the preparation for the day and the communication in between.

Crystal was amazing! She is professional and personal. Not only is she a great photographer, she helped our wedding day go smoothly- working so many weddings, she had so many tips and good wedding knowledge to really help the day (since I knew nothing what I was doing!).

We just got our wedding pictures back and I am in awe of how beautiful and perfect they are. Everything I dreamed they would be. She captured our day flawlessly and it was so fun to keep looking through them, reliving the day. Timeless photos we will have forever. Our whole... Read More experience with her, from meeting her over coffee, engagement shoot, correspondence and planning in between to our wedding day, there are no complaints. I chose her because of how organized and detail oriented she is, as well as her shooting style. I trusted that she would fix things that looked off (spacing of people, rogue hair, unattractive angles) as I obviously couldn't see myself to be able to create flawless photos, and it shows in her work. She was understanding of my insecurities and worries. She really takes her job seriously, and I felt like she worked hard for us, having our best interests at heart. I always felt heard and like she was working on my agenda, not hers. I feel like her pricing is unbeatable for the quality of work she produces. Our wedding party was large (26 people) ; I had just her for 10 hours and although at times we got behind, she always got us back on track. She was able to be assertive, yet professional as dealing with that big of a wedding party & family can be hard. Pictures were the number one thing for me; I feel like I absolutely made the right choice in choosing Crystal Klar Photography!

As I sit here on my craft retreat weekend trying to create a digital scrapbook of my daughters June wedding, my heart is broken once again! The photos taken by Crystal Klar are bad in so many ways. First, she did absolutely nothing to pose us for the families photos. In one... Read More photo, two of the grandparents are about two feet away from the rest of the family. And we were in such a bad location all of our faces are washed out. I didn't get one single good photo of either of the families! With most photos, she took them at such a distance, that most every one had to be cropped in tremendously and therefore lost a lot of quality. Every 8 x 10 I printed at National Camera and Photo is a disappointment and there is little hope for anything larger. The employee there in fact told me they were some of the worst professional photos they've seen. Most close ups were taken from the knees and then had a ton of dead space at the top of the photo, some as much as half the photo. Therefore cropping them isn't really even an option and it's basically a lost photo. When we got the images in July I wept for over a week. We had one chance to get good photos of our daughters wedding and we paid a lot of money. It was a failure! My heart is grieved again this weekend. I didn't really want to write a review but after spending the last 3 days looking over the photos again, I decided I needed to. I felt the need to forewarn all future brides and grooms of the potential for major disappointment.

Crystal was amazing from beginning to end. She was incredibly responsive and so respectful to us and of our wishes throughout the entire process. She was incredible the day of our wedding - we barely noticed her or her second photographer, but somehow we stuck to our timeline...

Crystal is amazing at what she does. She goes above and beyond. We feel blessed that we found Crystal and couldn't be more happy with our photos. She is affordable and her work is outstanding. During our engagement photos we were ready to move on to the next but she had stopped... Read More for an idea she had. That photo idea that she shot is one of my favorites. On our wedding day she arrived way earlier than our agreed start time. The reason being she was proactive about some road construction that would have made her commute longer and may have made her late. This was greatly appreciated as Crystal made sure she was there on time. During photos on the wedding day I tend to sweat on my nose and she absolutely did not have to do this but she did, pat my sweaty nose and sweat mustache away with some tissue! LOL I greatly appreciate her for this as she made sure I looked my best before she took the pictures. She also went as far as picking out some bugs getting stuck in my tulle dress. She is just absolutely amazing and her work is outstanding. As I look back at our beautiful photos, all of my emotions come back from that day and I do get teary eyed. It really was the best day ever. She has help create these photos that will be there for a lifetime and I am so thankful for that. You will not regret choosing Crystal. She's fabulous.
