CREATIVE DIRECTION & BRAND PHOTOSHOOT STRATEGY

The Background

Emma is a Midwest fine art wedding photographer that I’ve had the pleasure of working with on numerous projects but when she wanted to pull together a brand shoot for her website update, I knew it would be dreamy. Her two requests were a non traditional, colorful dress and that we work with Icon Cake. Fairytale meets modern castle. Done!

The vision

Crystal has the innate ability to take your thoughts and turn them into something tangible and beautiful.  She is inquisitive, intentional and thorough in her process and execution. Crystal is passionate about what she does and she serves her clients with grace and compassion. 

I am fortunate to be able to work alongside Crystal in a number of projects. I am always blown away by her creativity and attention to detail. Planning a workshop with her was a blessing and I'm thankful for her knowledge and generosity. 

"She values you in the stage you are in and gives the nudge to help you move forward."

I don’t know where to start. Crystal, was absolutely amazing. My dream wedding wouldn’t have happened without her. She is professional, energetic, and willing to go above and beyond to make things happen. She was always available to work through any of my wedding questions as well as provide great advice. 

I would have lost the day of my wedding without Crystal as my coordinator. The morning, ceremony and reception were beautiful, perfect and absolutely stress free, thanks to Crystal. Thank you for making my wedding a day that I will never forget.

Crystal is patient, relatability, knowledgeable, compassionate, efficient, talented, professional, and continuously strives for excellences. But the process of learning was my favorite part. She has taught be so much about branding, creative direction, social media concepts, and marketing.
