I’m not your mother’s photographer…and I mean that in the best way possible! My background in television journalism trained my eye to seek out situations that have created themselves. Posed family portraits are of course part of the package that I offer to all of my clients, but the candid moments that will only happen once are what I strive to capture. And this doesn’t go for just weddings... Whether I am shooting the maternity shots for your first-born child or capturing that same child three years down the road, I want to encapsulate all that makes your stories unique. Your life is more than what I can pose it to be, and that is what I look forward to documenting for you.

My Background… If You’re Curious

where I was a television-reporting intern for about nine months. But one cannot deny the pull of the Rocky Mountains, so after a year and a half away from home I returned to become a regional reporter for a CBS affiliate in Northern Colorado. As it turns out, chasing down sirens and interviewing the grieving was not the life for me.

So to complete my circle, here I am — right back where I was over a decade ago, camera in hand and still a journalist... but for all of life's greatest moments instead.

Tid Bits:

A day that starts with bacon is a good day

My nephew is my favorite model

Come springtime my thumbs are green. Ask to try one of my tomatoes... I'm a sharer!

Coffee is my only vice

I'm a story teller and I'm dying to find out your story! Read less

Krista is simply fantastic! We are so happy to have been able to work with her on our wedding day! At our initial meeting with Krista we knew she would be great - she was organized, personable, helpful and informative. We really enjoyed working with her on our engagement photos and she has a way of making you feel so comfortable so you are really able to enjoy the moment.
Krista was super organized leading up to our wedding day and made sure she knew everything we wanted. She was so fun to work with on our wedding day and for a majority of the evening we didn't even notice her, she just works her magic! We were so happy with our photos and couldn't have asked for better results. Overall, Krista is an amazing photographer and we can't wait to work with her in the future. Thanks Krista!

Krista was so fun to work with and also one of the sweetest gals. I received many compliments on her professionalism and what great work she did. She was willing to listen to ideas for photo shots and together we came up with some very creative ideas. I will have great photos to remind of us of our special moments. I used her for our family photos/engagement photo shoot and for our wedding and was very satisfied. I look forward to using her in the future, she is truly one of the best photographers out there.

One reason I used Krista because I had seen how beautiful her photos are. The second reason is that when you use her you don't have to go through hundreds of amazing wedding photos and then pick only a few that you like and order and pay for them. You pay a flat rate and then ALL of the photos from your wedding are yours and you can make as many prints of any of the photos as you want. That saves you money in the long run and keeps you from having to make hard choices about which photos you actually want. Most photographers don't allow you to have all of your photos. The third reason was that she is so sweet and calming to be around. She is quick in getting photos and has an amazing eye and sets you at ease so quickly, My husband hates being photographed and was so nervous for our engagement photos. With in a few minutes he was totally relaxed and had a great time. She is more than a photographer because she not only patientl answered my endless questions, she also helped me figure out a timeline for the day, she recommended vendors to me and helped me to find deals. There was nothing she didn't help me with or know about. She was one of the calmest aspects of my wedding and the least stressful aspect of the entire thing. Besides that, she is just so sweet and joyful that you actually enjoy her being part of your day. I got married at an event center and was worried because there was no great nature spots outside for photos. My husband and I really wanted outdoor photos but we accepted that maybe we couldn't have them. When we did our engagement photos I mentioned that we liked nature photos. I never mentioned it again. 4 months later on our wedding day Krista had researched and found a beautiful little meadow 3 minute drive from the venue so that we could have the nature photos we liked. She did this because she listens to you and goes above and beyond just taking some photos. She was one of the best parts of our wedding day. I have not one negative thing to say ab

Krista is amazing to work with. My husband and I choose her for her unique photography style and her ability to "capture moments." We didn't want a lot of posed pictures, but beautiful pictures that told the story about us and our big day. Krista did just that! Krista was always available by phone or email and was completely willing to work with our schedule. She also provided a lot of organization to our wedding. We didn't have a wedding planner, so the documents she had us fill out to organize the time we had the photos we wanted really helped us pull it all together. The turnaround time for getting photos back was great and the pictures are absolutely beautiful. I found her prices to be very comparable, if not better, to other photographers in the area. We've already hired Krista for a photo session since the wedding has ended, and I know we will be calling her for maternity and new born photos once we decide to grow our family!

Krista was absolutely fantastic. We loved the engagement photo shoot we did with her, which made it really easy to stick with her for the wedding photos. We're super happy with how the wedding photos turned out, and found Krista to be very responsive, professional, and extraordinarily good at getting large groups of people (including little kids) to all look at her at the same time. I would highly recommend Krista to anyone in need of wedding or family photos.

My husband and I were very pleased with our over all experience with Krista Watzel Photography. We had originally picked a different photographer, but after our engagement shoot were disappointed with the quality and interaction. This is where Krista saved the day! She made our satisfaction a priority. She had Jen shoot our engagement shoot and wedding. I am so glad we went with her. The photos turned out beautifully and we had a blast during the entire process!! :)

When I started planning our wedding photography was low on my list of priorities. I had seen so many typical wedding photos that I wasn't even excited for the end result. In comes Krista, she made everyone feel at ease during the ceremony and reception and the end result is amazing! All my family and friends are beaming and you can see the joy on everyone's faces. Krista captures pure emotion and I know I will cherish our wedding pictures forever.
