“It has been so special to us to experience our wedding again (and again), through your sensitive and decisive-moment-seizing eyes/lenses. It adds layers and dimensions to our memories, and will help keep them forever refreshed. And our families and friends have had jaws as dropped as ours. I’m sure you’ve both been told many times you have a gift for finding and making beautiful images”

Here’s the thing: you don’t get to take your wedding day with you. It’s lightening in a bottle. There are one million moments that happen on your wedding day and there is no way to be everywhere and remember every moment. That’s why you invest in a photographer, to be there for you. And that’s why we chose Crystal + Zoe. We trusted their creative license implicitly, and when we got our photos we realized they didn’t just capture every moment: they told the story of a day that means so much to us. They helped take our day with us for the rest of our lives. They captured our lightening in a bottle.

After knowing Zoe and Crystal separately for the past 5 years, to know them together we appreciate and love them even more. We are humbled and amazed by their collective eye. To have Crystal and Zoe photograph our wedding day was to be in the midst of a truly awesome pair.

FAQ


FAQ


+ what is the benefit of two professional photographers?
Weddings have lots of parts. Some of these parts happen simultaneously. When you hire us, there is a 100% guarantee that we will capture everything that is going on. two camera-worthy moments going on at once? we'll be there. When posed family photos take place, two photographers ensure that while one directs the assembled family, the other is capturing meaningful candid moments nearby. 

+ but why you, specifically?
the wedding day goes by fast but we know where to look. you will be able to sort through your wedding photos and not only see the story of your day but feel the emotional punch as well. we not only strive to capture the authentic, but find ourselves inspired by the family you've chosen to surround yourself with and the space you've decided to celebrate in. It's about two sets of eyes shape-shifting-- quickly recognizing the tenor & context of your wedding-- carefully framing it, capturing it, and feeling it.

plus we're two photographers inspired by each other, constantly pushing our limits while linking arms. we have so much fun doing this.

+ do you travel?
YES. We love traveling together and encourage clients outside of minnesota to consider going with two photographers as a general rule of thumb. traveling adds it's own logistical hurtles but with two, we're double the back-up, double the planning, double the coverage. plus zoe's 6-feet tall which means exit row , hay! We request that clients be responsible for accommodations and travel costs. 

+ how much to book you?
we're equally responsible with photographing, conceptualizing, and post-processing. we start our full-day package at $4,500. Email us your story and what you're looking for and we can set up a Skype date to answer all of your questions. WE ARE FLEXIBLE.
