I want to celebrate your love and life with you. Let me capture your elopement in the middle of your favorite hiking trail and trash the dress(es) and/or tux(es) in a beautiful lake! Let's sing our hearts out to your favorite songs & pop a bottle of champagne at the highest lookout point we can find! Whatever you wanna do. It's your call. I wanna get to know who you really are and tell your true, authentic love story.
So my husband Bryan and I made 10 years married this year. I've come to the sad realization that we don't really have the best wedding photos (or that many for that matter) to look back on and relive our best day ever. I DO NOT want you to have the same problem as us! I am here to capture the essence of your carefree, joyous souls on your best day ever. With me, you won't need to worry whether your hair or makeup is perfect or about stiff and unnatural poses.
I can be a little bit introverted at first, but once you get to know me, I’m a free spirited, funny and sassy Sagittarius. I'm a proud New York City native (now residing and based in the City of Newburgh, NY) and a struggling Mets fan; a city girl to the core! I also love to be one with nature or a straight up beach bum. Nothing beats a beautiful autumn hike or a breezy day at the beach.
I'm married and deeply in love with my best friend Bryan (he actually took these portraits of me; isn't he awesome?!). We have been married for 10 years, a couple for 13 and parents for nearly 5! We have learned that love evolves, but if it’s true, never fades. I want that true love to reflect in your photos! My goal is to create and capture beautiful wedding and elopement images of you, that will stand the test of time. Love is such a wonderful gift; your photos should reflect that.
"We hired Crys to take our elopement photos and she did a great job! She offered a variety of creative poses and made us feel comfortable and beautiful! We are so pleased with the quality of the photos and the shoot was a lot of fun. Positive energy and exceptional talent. Highly recommend for your wedding!"
I am a self taught wedding and portrait photographer. I have been enjoying the craft for about 10 years now! I am passionate about capturing real moments between couples who are head over heels in love; deep kisses, butt squeezes, secret glances, laughter and tears! I am also so glad to live in such a rustic, scenic area. The Hudson Valley has so many beautiful locations for photos; I’m actually compiling a list of them on my blog!
The bottom line here is that love is truly a gift that is meant to be experienced in all of its raw, imperfect beauty. Know that with me, you will have so much fun and you will get photos that reflect your love in its most genuine form. I am so excited to meet you.
