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

Not only is Krista an amazing photographer, but she is a great person to work with. On my wedding day, I was running behind on getting ready so I was stressing out about not being able to have pictures done with my family and bridal party and Krista knew it. She told me not to worry, take my time and we can get the pictures in after the ceremony. You can imagine the relief I felt. I am so thankful for everything she did for us and we plan on using her again for family pictures.

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.

Krista knows exactly what she is doing and she is great at it! She is professional, fun, and her product is absolutely stunning. We would never even think of referring anyone else.

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!! :)

Krista was so great to work with. My husband and I felt very comfortable during pictures and our family complemented her professionalism to us. She definitely has weddings down and was able to deliver us the pictures we wanted.

Krista was particularly helpful in planning; she made great recommendations for our day-of schedule and I never felt rushed on our wedding day.

While looking for a photographer, we struggled to find someone who was reasonably priced without sacrificing on quality. We felt we got a truly great value with Krista and would definitely recommend her to brides in need!

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.

Krista Watzel Photography responded with the following comments:

I must admit that I'm beyond shocked to be receiving this review from you and am very sorry to hear of any disappointment in my services. Kira expressed that she was unhappy with how her makeup looked in the pictures and although this is an issue that I have no control over, I offered to tone down her blush, which is what I understood the problem to be. If there is an issue beyond that it has not been brought to my attention and I would certainly try to remedy the problem in whatever manner possible if given the chance. I love the way your and Kira's image turned out and have shared the link to them below because I feel they are an accurate representation of my work. I hope we can find a resolution to this. http://kristawatzelphotography.smugmug.com/Weddings/Kira-and-Tom-Wedding/32377083_PpcJPx#!i=2819055329&k=LSnkWtM

Krista was a dream to work with, especially being that we were planning the wedding from overseas. She not only delivered exactly what we had asked, she surpassed our expectations and captured so many moments that we otherwise wouldn't have been aware of. We are so happy that we had Krista there and would highly recommend her to couples looking for a photographer that is easy to work with and makes you feel completely at ease even in your most stressful moments.

I cannot say enough good things about Krista. We had an out-of-town wedding so we didn't meet her in person until a few days before. I was a little nervous about that but within minutes of meeting her I knew we made a great choice! Krista was efficient in getting shots done without being overbearing. Several guests and family members asked for her information she was that good!

The thing I loved most about her is that she listened to what we wanted while still using her expertise. I am CLUELESS when it comes to weddings so she was helpful in keeping me on track while still letting it be my day. She kept us one time (I am perpetually late!) and I am so excited to see all of our photos. She has a customer for life! She made our day so special!
