It’s been a minute since I’ve done maternity photos! I used to have these sessions quite often in Fort McMurray, but wedding photography has taken up much of my time since moving the Edmonton four years ago.

I’m so happy that Shane and Moriah revived this part of my work! We met way back when wedding shows were a thing. You know, before COVID was a thing. We met at the Edmonton Bridal Fantasy Wedding Show. Moriah told me about her plans for a destination wedding. She had narrowed down her options to two locations. One of which I had visited and photographed a wedding at a couple of years before. I showed her photos of that gorgeous beach wedding, and she made her decision on location. The more we talked, the more excited we got, and more my Newfoundlander accent came out. Her mom heard it immediately. Instant connection.

A week later, when Moriah met me at my home in South Edmonton. This time she brought her groom, Shane, to talk about photography for a tropical Dominican Republic destination wedding. I offered them tea while we chatted. We all felt so at home with each other. Shane later said it was the tea (haha). Isn’t funny how simple, little things can bring comfort and cultivate lasting relationships?

Fast forward to now.

So far I’ve had the privilege to document their engagement in downtown Edmonton; intimate winter wedding/ legal ceremony; insanely fun destination wedding at Dreams Royal Beach Punta Cana (formally Now Larimar Punta Cana); day after wedding, sexy trash the dress; and finally, their maternity session. The joke during this session was that they know me so well that they just started directing themselves and each other: “Bend that knee closest to me”; and, “Mangoes”, whispered in an ear (in the sexiest voice possible, of course). I enjoyed every second of this session and the time afterwards that we spent standing in the parking lot chatting and catching up.

I could not be happier for these two and their amazing, beautiful families. This is going to be one lucky baby. I can’t wait to meet him or her!

Hello!

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!
