MY NAME IS Crystal, AKA Crys

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 gorgeous Hudson Valley) and a struggling Mets fan; a city girl to the core! Sky scrapers, pizza on the go and city lights are home to me. I also love to be one with nature or a total beach bum. Nothing beats a beautiful autumn hike or a warm, breezy day at the beach.

I'm married and deeply in love with my best friend and soulmate, Bryan. We have been married for 14 years, a couple for 17 and parents for over 8! Over the years, we have learned that love evolves, but if it’s true, never fades. I want that to reflect in your photos! My goal is to capture images of you that will stand the test of time. Love is such a wonderful gift; your photos should reflect that.

Not just a photographer, a visual, storyteller for loved-up souls.

A little about me

What inspires me is you. Your unique look, love & celebration. The way you gaze at your person with love in your eyes and a full to overflowing heart. Crys Torres Photography was founded with the goal of documenting the most meaningful and beautiful moments of your lives. My purpose is not to “create” magic, but to document the magic that already exists in you. I would like to help you feel more confident to step into it as your special moments unfold. I'm here to deliver beautiful, timeless imagery that you can pass down to generations to come.

Are you looking for photos that capture the essence of your love? Do you want to smile through happy tears as you look back at all of the precious, in between moments of your day? I'd love the honor of capturing it all for you, so you can reminisce about all of those incredible moments. View them in all their glory, and be transported back to the way you felt, loved and celebrated.



No matter who we are or where we find ourselves, we're all souls journeying through this beautiful world, each with a unique story to tell. No two tales are alike, and that's precisely why I'm so passionate about documenting love stories—hopefully, including yours!

When I'm not shooting, you can catch me painting, snuggling with my cats (while thinking about how I can successfully sneak a dog into the house without my husband noticing..), enjoying family time and traveling any chance I get. I love trying new foods from different places and experimenting with new recipes; food is definitely one of my love languages! I also love plants; I own nearly 20 houseplants at this point (for me, thats a lot, ha) Traveling and gaining new experiences keeps me going as well.

Love pets? Art? Plants? Food and cooking? Travel? Then let's connect!

Yes, my cats are also my kids.


From start to finish, I'll be there to capture every moment of your special day.

At the start I'll be with the bridal party, documenting the laughter and nerves as they prepare. Throughout the day, I'll blend into the background, ensuring nothing escapes my lens—from the ceremony to the reception and even the afterparty if that's what you want.

Whether it's candid shots or posed portraits, I'll tailor my approach to your preferences. With my experience, I'll ensure the day flows smoothly, so you can relax and enjoy every moment.

When you choose me as your photographer, you're not just getting someone who takes pictures—you're getting a storyteller who will capture the magic of your love story.

I hope this conveys the essence of my approach and why it's a great idea to have me there on your big day!

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

Our shoot felt like such a fun adventure as the 3 of us discovered cool locations and chatted about concerts. [Crystal's] enthusiasm was apparent and we ended up with amazing photos that we will cherish always. We will be working with her again in the future to capture our most precious moments. This is a photographer you can trust.

We could not be happier with Crys as our wedding photographer!!! Professional, easy going, patient and most of all, talented. Every conversation was easy and felt like talking to a friend, I knew I could trust her with our big day from our first conversation. I believe the photographer is a really important part of the day, because really- when all is said and done, the photos are really all you really have (not the cake, not the food, or even your wedding dress). Crys was great dealing with everyone, she kept everything moving and everyone on track without being overly pushy. Thank you so much Crys! We'll cherish these amazing photos forever.

I booked Crys Torres for our wedding and it was such an amazing experience! She gave us direction, managed to get pictures of everybody, decor etc. Our bride and groom pictures came out magical I’m in love with them. She is truly amazing at her craft.

Crystal did an amazing job with our wedding photography! She is extremely friendly and easy to work with. Her familiarity with the location was immensely helpful in knowing where to take our photos.
She helped us set up many amazing poses and did a phenomenal job naturally capturing special moments. She made us feel so comfortable and it was so easy to be ourselves during our portrait session. When shooting our reception, she made sure to get the most special moments between us and our guests.
The photos are absolutely beautiful and we are so grateful!
