A little intro about me: Thank you for stopping by America Roe Photography by Crystal Joy. I'm an Iowa 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 to travel(who doesn't!?), listening to worship music, dancing, working out, reading, finding incredible coffee shops to kick back at with friends, eating sushi and of course, capturing life through my camera lens.I'm a daughter, sister, aunt, girlfriend, friend, mentor and a woman who dreams to make a dent in this world for the better.  


As for my photography business: I decided in April 2014 to make my love for photography into a bonafide business.Just this past August, I decided to do some BIG things in my life and with that change, I thought that it would be fitting to change the name of my business. In the Bible, whenever people went through a big change in their life and God wanted to establish a new identity, they would get a name change to signify this event occurring. Abram was changed to Abraham after God made a covenant with him, that his offspring would be greater than the number of stars in the sky. Jacob was changed to Israel after he wrested with God in the desert. Thus, Crystal Joy W. Photography is now knowns as America Roe Photography. The meaning behind this: I love the country we live in and the freedoms we have as Americans in America. I have the freedom to own a business, to conduct business as I see fit and to capture you freely. The word, "Roe" as a girl's name means, "red-haired", which is seen as a unique trait, or a trait unlike any other. I very much want my photography and my service to my client to be just that: unlike any other. 


My Photography Style: I LOVE natural light, especially the golden hour. I also like raw, organic moments, because I find that these moments are the moments people lovingly look back on. Now, if you're looking for your photo galleries to be composed of posed compositions, you'll get some of these, but most of your session will be candid moments that are rich with emotion and dimension. If you did these types of images, then I'm pretty sure we are going to really enjoy our time together.


My heart: Can I tell you something super raw about me? One of the hardest things I have come to find out about in this arena of photography, there is the trap we as people can fall in to, and that's comparison. That photographer is doing this style OR this photographer is doing that. But something I have learned is that to love my clients, I have to love myself, because essentially, you found me because my images spoke to you or a past client of mine told you about me. 


A note to you: Fabulous person, I'd LOVE to capture life unscripted for you. I want to be the photographer capturing your moments. Please know that I realize that it takes immense 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 capture 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!"
