"She will take the time to teach you something and she will make sure that you get it!

“Crystal is not only an incredible photographer, but she is an incredible teacher. In fact, I don’t think incredible really truly describes how amazing this woman really is. She will take the time to teach you something and she will make sure that you get it! You don’t have to worry about falling behind because she is the kind of caring person that is always willing to help others. Not only is she meant for taking pictures but she’s meant to teach too. I’m patiently awaiting her next workshop!!”

"She will take the time to teach you something and she will make sure that you get it!

Building community is becoming more and more important to me. I’m such in introvert but I really love being around people that love shooting and creating content. When I have questions or want to expand, I believe in reaching out to get advise and assistance and to pay for it when needed. I’m not to proud to ask and not too selfish to give when asked of me. Time is money. Money is energy and support and community is everything. Crystal provided that instruction and guidance in a very real, relatable and down to earth way.
