I know investing in your business can be so dang scary! But taking the leap of faith & believing in yourself & in your business can literally CHANGE YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!
And I say that as a single mama who started this business from the ground up by myself.

"Cristeal is the BEST photographer! 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for a photographer who takes amazing photos and is a FUN time. We recently had our engagement shoot, and couldn't thank Cristeal enough for making it such a fun experience for us. No awkward moments or forced poses! She also checked in and gave us helpful tips prior to our shoot! Not to mention she captured the most beautiful moments *still crying* (obsessed with how beautiful the photos turned out) but not only is she an amazing photographer, but a genuine person. After our shoot, she offered to take photos of a couple close by who just got married and didn't have a photographer. So sweet! So YES you should definitely book her because she's just amazing. I can't wait to see the magic she'll do with our wedding day" -Marissa
"I actually found Cristeal through an Instagram reel after searching for a local photographer. I live in Nevada and was not really have any luck with someone who felt like a piece to it puzzle. I wanted someone different, lively and wouldn’t just do a “wedding protocol”, but someone who would capture our day of fun, celebration and give us a way to revisit it the way it actually happened! I saw her reel where she was having just as much fun as the couple and capturing it, she was just what I was looking for ! I had no issues flying her out to our wedding!
Cristeal made me feel like I was talking to myself ! It felt as though she could see what I was seeing! It was so refreshing, she even helped me to hone in on my thoughts and really focus them on what actually mattered! She felt like a pocket of peace and I loved every minute of communicating with!
She made us feel so excited, we could feel the joy and creativity flowing from her and her assistant! Cristeal! Even my husband, who hates photos said she had such great energy, it was easy to vibe with her and she made taking pictures feel easy!
I only expected photos, but she gave us so much more than we expected! It felt like we gained a friend ! And her photos were stunning!
Oh my goodness yes Cristeal made us feel extra special and taken care of as clients!!!!!!!! She went above and beyond to book the location of this abandoned post office building where we took photos! I told her I was not having any luck and unsure of where else to take photos. From the moment I walked into the location (while it was a shop closing down) I knew I wanted our photos there. Cristeal was able to track down the owner and book it for what felt like pennies!!!
I have been telling everyone to hire her! She is energetic, creative, welcoming, genuine, PREPARED, ORGANIZED, and actually follows through with everything ! Even to the day we received photos, she was on top of it all!" -Hannah
