"I can't say enough good things about Chrystal Nause Photography! A photographer is with you from the start of the day to the end of the day and as a result, can either make or break your wedding day. Chrystal made mine! She is personable and fun, which makes being with her all day great! Also, not only did she take amazing photos, but she did so while not even being noticed. I loved our wedding photos and enjoyed having Chrystal with me to capture my wedding day. I highly recommend Chrystal Nause Photography!"

"Chrystal Nause did an outstanding job as our wedding photographer. She provided vital details ensuring nothing was over looked while also listening to my own ideas and making them happen exactly how I wanted them. She was a pleasure to work with through the whole process! Chrystal's passion and dedication is second to none and her talent can be seen in each of her photographs. We absolutely are in love with our wedding pictures!"

"Chrystal photographed my wedding and did our newborn shots of our son. She does a wonderful job. As a photographer myself I have pretty high standards and Chrystal always impresses me and is my first choice when it comes to photographing those special moments. I love that she uses traditional film and digital combinations that you don't get from everyone. It gives it that special one of a kind touch that pushes her work to that next level."

"Working with Chrystal Nause as our wedding photographer was a dream - she was supportive, creative, and endlessly patient, in addition to being a whole lot of fun! She was with us throughout our wedding weekend, from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning, and while she and her assistant Amanda Urbanski were always present, they were often working so subtly behind the scenes that many in our wedding party forgot they were taking pictures - this led to so many great candid shots that we loved, both during the rehearsal and the reception!

Chrystal also made our wedding party shots just awesome on every level - I'm not someone who gets her picture taken on a regular basis, and Chrystal made me feel like a rock star/supermodel that day. We had a late-afternoon/early-evening wedding, so my groom and I had a "reveal" early in the afternoon (one of my favorite moments of the day, which Chrystal captured beautifully) with his photo shoot prior to the reveal and my photo shoot afterward, ending in our photo shoot an hour or so before the ceremony. It was a long afternoon, but it was completely comfortable, largely because Chrystal and Amanda were so laid-back and easy-going even as they kept us all on schedule - their attitude set the tone for the entire experience.

During the afternoon, Chrystal had great ideas for shots, but she was also open to any and all suggestions from me and my groom; his pics with his groomsmen were hysterical (my Ryan is quite the ham, and his friends are all goofballs), but they were also so handsomely shot that it was difficult to choose a favorite, while my pics with my bridesmaids were gorgeous. My favorite photo shoot, though, hands-down, was the one featuring Ryan and me together; it sounds cliché, I know, but it was kind of magical: he was so handsome, and I felt so beautiful, and we were just ridiculously in love. Cheesy, yes, but true. It resulted in some of my favorite pics from the whole day, reception included! (I think one of these is in Chrystal's online portfolio, actually, which also makes me happy!)

Our ceremony and reception were both held in a room that we loved but was something of an odd space with strange lighting for photography - regardless, Chrystal and Amanda worked tirelessly throughout the evening to get some amazing shots. One of my favorites is a shot of the crowd during a slow dance; Ryan and I aren't in that particular picture (we were dancing off to the side), but so many of our friends and family are all dancing with their significant others, and it is just perfect, the kind of spontaneous moment that no one can really see unless a great photographer captures it.

I know that if you spend any time looking at Chrystal's portfolio, you'll see her talent and her love for what she does. Hiring her to photograph your wedding might be the best decision you can make to ensure that every wonderful moment of the experience will be yours to treasure forever!"

"We had a GREAT experience with Chrystal as our photographer. She met with us ahead of time to discuss our vision, and how we wanted her to capture our special day. She was also super easy to communicate with via e-mail. She was really enthusiastic about all our ideas, and that great attitude was a great vibe on our wedding day. She was really flexible, and her photos were phenomenal! She was professional, easygoing, positive, and skilled. She went above and beyond on our day, and even stayed after the wedding to get some extra special shots. We loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!"
