About Your Photographer

Photographer Crystal Horton

Hi, I’m Crystal and I am more than just a photographer. I am an artist who desires fulfillment in capturing precious and timeless moments that you can never get back once they have passed. I am both fun and relaxed. I am in love with every moment of every day, even the challenging ones. I believe that it’s never too late for anything. I love my family. I love my passion. And, I love getting to freeze moments in time that you will always love looking back on.

Why am I a Photographer?

If the world were to suddenly find it is no longer surrounded by technology, I want to know that it was my art, my images, my photographs that were captured, that hang upon your wall. Everyday, my children get to see their own family memories and I want that for every mom and dad and child. 

But the truth is, my photography gives me time with my family. Because I look at my own family and my own photographs every day, I constantly have the drive to give my clients the exact same feelings that I get. 

Have you ever been so happy your heart just bursts out of your chest and you can’t even speak because the tears swell in your eyes and your throat completely closes? That is how I feel and why I love doing what I do.

I always hope that my clients see the true inexpressible value in the photographs that I capture, but more than that, I want them to know that the experience is more than they could ever have imagined. Moments will be gone before you know it and it’s how those moments make you feel and how you will remember them that make capturing photographs worthwhile. 

β€œThe best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched β€” they must be felt with the heart.” β€” Helen Keller.
