I am a reach-for-the-stars & get-ish-done kind of girl. I have always wanted to do big things and you may be thinking, 'you're a wedding photographer...how is that big?' I spend all my time empowering people & helping them to see how truly beautiful they are! It is one of my greatest joys to see someone go from nervous to excited & to watch that confidence develop THROUGHOUT our shoot.

At any given wedding you might find me GETting DOWN ON THE DANCE FLOOR HARDER THAN I PROBABLY SHOULD, saying "OMg YAS" JUST A LITTLE TOO LOUD, AND EAting AS MANY BROWNIES AS I CAN GET MY HANDS ON!

It's miss Cristeal your girl

(lol at the trey songs reference)

so stoked you're here!

Most days you can find me consuming far too much caffeine while chasing some very cute tiny humans around. I’m a single mama, a storyteller and a lover of all things pasta.

I like to call myself the ultimate hype woman. There is nothing more important to me than helping my girls & everyone around me to see themselves the way God sees them. Beautiful, worthy & uniquely special.

I’m obsessed with the daily dance parties that we throw in my house & exploring new places. I’d rather be cuddling my babies than literally doing anything else. I frequently make ridiculous videos of myself and post them to my instagram. My best friends would tell you I’m fiercely loyal & my moral compass trumps all. When I don’t have a camera in my hand, I am typically holding the hand of one of my girls, & showing them all the beautiful things this life has to offer.

i love my babies more than life itself...

I’m the kind of person who will help you every step of the way. My past clients (aka friends) tell me I was a lifesaver because I use all my experience to help throughout the wedding planning process not just on your wedding day. I will actually help you create that dreaded timeline & I will get to know you so that when it comes time for me to take your pictures - you feel comfortable & your love can really shine. Let’s just say I got you because helping people plan the wedding of their dreams & getting those jaw-dropping emotion-filled photos is my bread & butter!.
