Crystal Joy W. Photography


Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. I consider it an honor that you would take some time out of your day to check out Crystal Joy Photography here on Forever Bride. I guess to begin, I'm an Iowain native, but have seemingly made roots in the Twin Cities. While I tend to have a crazy schedule, when I DO have time to recharge, I love traveling, listening to worship music, dancing, working out, reading, finding incredible coffee shops to kick back at with friends, spending time with the love of my life I have nicknamed, "My Sunshine Man", eating sushi (I'm totally addicted to Yummi's Sushi in Excelsior, MN!) and of course, capturing life through my camera lens. 

As for my photography style, I LOVE natural light, especially the golden hour (many would say that sessions during this time of the day are my "signature", and if you look at my photos, you'll see that coming through). I also like raw, organic moments, because I find that these moments are the moments people lovingly look back on. I'd also say that my photography is beginning to lean more towards the lifestyle portraiture that is being seen in the photography arena, and photos are becoming a bit moodier as well. So if you're looking for your photo galleries to be composed of posed compositions, you'll get some of these, but more of your session will be candid moments that are rich with emotion and dimension. 

So, with that being said, I'd LOVE to capture life unscripted for you. I want to be your photographer capturing your moments. Please know that I realize that it takes emmense trust from you for me to capture your life's moments, and know that I deem it such an incredible honor and huge responsibility to be part of these moments for you. 

I can't wait to hear from you!

Crystal Joy Photography was wonderful to work with! They shot my engagement and wedding and I couldn't be happier with how the prints turned out! Crystal is great - very professional, responsive, easy to work with, and reasonably priced. I have referred several friends to Crystal Joy Photography because I trust the quality of their work. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future.

We had the honor of working with Crystal Joy to capture our first professional family photos. Needless to say, we were thrilled with the images. She has an uncanny ability to see and capture people in their true form: silly, playful, loving - her images simple ooze personality while artfully balancing light, composition and color saturation. We couldn't have been more pleased and look forward to working with her again in the future.

"Crystal is a very talented photographer that checks out quality spots for engagement and wedding pictures in advance. Her professionalism shines when scheduling dates that will work and helping to pick out outfits. She's able to take photos that show your personality and is really good with poses so that it doesn't feel or look awkward. The price is very affordable for a quality print. I'd highly recommend Crystal for any photographs!"
