I can’t say enough about how amazing/cool/wonderful Chrystal and Lucas were for our engagement and wedding photos, but I’ll try... I met with Chrystal as the fourth of the four photographers my husband and I interviewed. It was great to just chat with someone who had so much experience over cocktails. She was the only photographer my husband didn’t meet, but when I got home, I knew who we had to photograph our engagement photos and wedding. We booked a package that included a 2ish hour engagement shoot, our wedding, and a Photo Booth for the reception. When the day for our engagement photos (in February...in Wisconsin) came around, it was gale force winds, but Chrystal stuck with us through 6 different locations, even though it ended up being over 5 hours instead of 2. I hate having my photo taken and she got me to relax and feel comfortable, which is a feat in itself. On our wedding day, Lucas took care of my husband and the groomsmen (who were all big fans) during the lead up to the ceremony, and took fantastic candid shots while Chrystal handled the bridesmaids and the family members. It was so nice to have someone there who had been with so many brides on their wedding day and could make a few gentle suggestions without stressing me out. Our wedding photos are amazing - we will cherish them forever, especially the candid photos of our wedding party. I have never had a photo of my parents that captured the affection they feel for each other, but it turned up in our wedding. Since we got married, 2 other couples booked Chrystal and her husband Lucas for their own photos. I’m good friends with each bride and they are so relieved to know that their wedding photos will be perfect. Also - get the photo booth!!! So many hilarious photos to giggle at and blackmail friends with (especially if you have an open bar).
We chose Chrystal and Lucas based on a recommendation from a friend. We were hesitant to have an engagement shoot, since it felt unnecessary and we’re not the kissy-type of couple, but she insisted on the shoot saying it was a great way for us to get to know her and it ended up being a great decision. We got fantastic shots on a rainy day, which didn’t bother Chrystal in the slightest, and since the rest of the shoot was cut short due to rain, she came back the next day to get the rest of the shots she wanted, going above and beyond. On the wedding day, Chrystal and Lucas operated as a team capturing different perspectives of the day and they were as talented and professional as they come. From turning a whiny 3-year-old into her little helper to capturing the essence of our unique ceremony space (a circular room) and later capturing action shots of our fast-paced first dance in a poorly lit room, Chrystal and Lucas are the definition of professionals. On top of that, they’re both kind and calm amongst the chaos of a wedding day and were, simply-put, a blast to be around! Perhaps the best part of the night was their insistence that we head outside around 10 or 11pm for some night shots with sparklers. We can’t wait to see the photos so we can re-live our day for years to come. We recommend C&L as highly as possible and could not place a price tag on their great additions to our day. The day was perfect, thanks in large part to them.
You are SO awesome. I don’t think words can do justice. Rockstar photographer award... from climbing rocks to get the right angle, to directing traffic for family picts with the right backdrop (and flawlessly directing family), to quite literally going for a swim in Lake MI (for our requested bride/groom shots) - and then topping it off by kicking all the goose poo off a pier to make sure our romantic river pictures were perfect... All this after an already full weekend of weddings?! We couldn’t have been luckier to find you. Sincerely thank you for being there to capture our day!
Thank you for everything! You were a memorable part of our day that we will never forget.We just had so much fun! And seriously, you two were the ones keeping us moving! You will get endless recommendations from us — as if your work doesn’t speak for itself. Can’t wait to watch it all play back in your photos!!!
Thank you so much you two, I can’t even express in words the amazing job you guys did. Out of all the other vendors I hired for our wedding you two were the best decision I could of made. I received so many compliments. Thank you! You two were the most fun photographers I have ever met at any of the many weddings I have been to, so I just wanted to let you know how much that means to all of us.
I cannot express enough how wonderful crystal and Lucas were for our engagement photos and wedding. Very nice people who take exceptional pictures. Or engagement session ran 5 hours long and they didn’t even think twice about stopping just so we could get the perfect silhouette pictures at dusk. They were with us from 8 am until 11:30pm at our wedding and the pictures are bridal magazine worthy. The photo booth was as blast too! We also get a free photo session once per year for the rest of our lives on top of the ridiculously great pricing of their wedding package. These two are amazing!
Yay! That was such speedy and beautiful work - we are thrilled with the photos. I also sent my mom the photo you posted on your facebook page earlier today and she wrote back saying, “Even if you could only have this one photo, that would be enough”. I can’t wait to show her the rest!
