I feel like Buddy the Elf, “Smiling’s my favourite!” when looking at these.  Actually, the smile was pretty much permanent throughout the editing.  Photos are amazing in that they can make you actually feel something, and happy is the best feeling!
Melissa and Darren are so excited to meet their little one and it shows.  I’ll bet you just can’t help but smile when looking at these, either!
I work with Melissa, she is always laughing and smiling, but even more so during our session.  There’s a lot to be excited and happy about!  They bought their first home ever less than a year ago, had just finished painting the baby’s room, and now we are only about a month away from finding out the sex of this baby!  On top of that it was a warm spring day at Tour North Ranch, where snow was melting off the buildings, and horses were busy taking families on sleigh rides through the trails.  A perfect afternoon to celebrate this beautiful milestone together 🙂

Hi, I'm Chrystal (she/her) and I'm so happy you're here! 

If you're looking to feast your eyes on couples in love, raw emotion and vibrant scenes, you've come to the right place.

I'm an Edmonton wedding photographer for couples madly in love, and those who love to laugh right from their hearts (and bellies).  Over the past 10 years I've been very lucky to photograph weddings of all kinds and sizes including Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Fijian, Chinese weddings and all sorts of fusions.  I've photographed teeny tiny elopements to grand celebrations, LGBTQ+ weddings and inter-racial weddings, as well as destination weddings in places like Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Las Vegas, Canmore, Banff, and Newfoundland - in addition to the beautiful Edmonton weddings and Fort McMurray weddings I've had the privilege to be a part of.  

I would love to here more about you.  LET'S CONNECT!
