crystal rose photography

crystal rose photography

hi, i'm crystal

born and raised in colorado.

i have a degree in graphic design, and graduated from rocky mountain school of photography in 2013, focusing on wedding and lifestyle photography. i'm professional, i'm passionate, i'm friendly. i love jesus, chai lattes, and anything vintage. i smile a lot, but laugh even more. i like to have a good time, i like to create. i've got a wild heart and hungry eyes, and i'm always ready for an adventure.

disclaimer: i'm not for everyone, nor do i want to be.

if there is anything that i have learned in the last year, is that i have a specific style/goal when it comes to my photography and i am going to stay true to that. i provide my best work when my clients trust me, and trust my art. when you hire me, you are more than a client, you are a friend.

i've been photographing for almost ten years, and i can't get enough.

photography isn't just a hobby to me. it's not something i do on the side while i work a 9-5 job during the week. photography is my heart and soul. i take it very seriously, and the i'm happiest when my camera is in my hands. i'm about quality over quantity. i wait for the perfect moment, and i capture it. just as it is.

above all, i just want to capture memories, moments. i want to photograph people as they are, and who they are. i want it to be real, raw, natural. i want people to feel something when they see my photos. feel joy, curiosity, love. i want to work with more creative people who want to do something different. i want to challenge myself with new environments. i want to do more, learn more, be more.

i want to breathe life into photography like it breathes life into me.

A little about me


Learn about my Philosophy and what inspired me to become a photographer 

"There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!"

In this area write about what started your journey into photography and what it is you love about it.

You can also write about how you best serve your clients and ensure them that you will go above and beyond to make sure the feel comfortable in front of the leans and that they will love the photos.

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”

Here’s where you can go on a deeper dive into what started your photography journey and why you love it so much – talk about your motivations and purpose, why every shoot is a new experience. 

You can also write about your overall style and personality, what makes you different from all the other photographers they’ve researched. Don’t be shy!

Talk about how your photos will help them relive the day for years and generations to come. 

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat

Uncover your overall approach to the day and an overview of your process. Help them picture what it’s like to have you there on the day and why what you do is so important. Mention how you’ll help them ensure the day flows smoothly, because you’ve had loads of experience at other weddings.   

For example, talk about how you’ll arrive at first light to capture the mother-of-the-bride and the bridal squad helping the bride get ready. Or the groomsmen sneaking a few drinks to calm their nerves. 

Chat about how you’ll turn up after one too many coffees, buzzing with energy to capture one of the most important, memorable days in their lives, and that you won’t miss a moment. 

Write about documenting the getting ready prep through to ceremony, reception and afterparty (if relevant). How you’ll be there in the centre of it all or as a wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details that they might’ve missed (e.g. Aunty Doris getting drunk on the d-floor). Whether you stick to purely candid shots or will pose them for styled shots.

Disney Movies still Make me Cry
(a one-liner, fun quirk that makes you, you)

Here’s where you can delve further into your favourite things outside of wedding photography – everyone might be able to be a photographer, but there’s little quirks that make you unique – chat about that. 

Maybe you can talk about your favourite hobbies, food, art or leisure activities. What you do to wind down when you’re not shooting – pets, your family, your hometown.

You can also use this opportunity to rehash your love for travelling – a great way for you to subtly remind them that you’re open to shooting destination weddings. 

Remember to wrap up this section by tying it back into wedding photography. For example, “That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favourite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)”
