"I recently used Crystal for my photoshoot rebrand. Crystal is more than a photographer! She's a director, a brand overseer, and an organizer. She was able to not only pull together some of the best photos I've ever taken, she also managed to ground my brand in a focused voice and clear direction. She works with you not only on shoot day, but from womb to tomb of the shoot. Which makes for a very efficient shoot and a well thought out plan for how to effectively use your pictures afterward.
I will not only be using her again, but I will also recommend her whenever possible. This rating system only goes up to 5 stars, but she deserves a 10 star rating!" Melissa Fredericks, MKOS

"I hired Crystal to do my full brand photo shoot. We rented a studio in Downtown LA and shot for 4 hours with lots of on brand props. It was incredible. The images have really helped bring my brand fully to life on my website and on social media. I love getting emails that say something like "your website and photos are f*cking fantastic," and I just give Crystal all the shoutouts. As a non-designer, I have found that quality, personalized photos - along with good copy - can make you stand out among and be memorable even while DIYing your marketing. Highly recommend going all in on a brand shoot."

"In just 2 short hours of working with Crystal, I found clarity and connectivity in my brand messaging that I never had before. She is an amazing teacher leader and with her guidance and suggestions I can't wait to implement all the great suggestions and feedback she provided me with, it was so IMPACTFUL! Highly recommend!!!!!"
