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 was amazing to work with. She is so fun and literally sprints around trying to get everything to make each photo perfect. During the reception I barely remember seeing her, and yet she captured some of the most candid, hilarious photos! All of her photos are amazing and I definitely plan to use her for the rest of life's milestones.

We met Krista at our friends wedding. She seemed really nice and great to work with, and that was just as an outsiders perspective. When we saw their photos, we thought they looked great! So the combination of the two things caused us to call her when we became engaged. We were right! She is a great person to work with and does quality work. She is very professional but also has a sort of charm that causes the photo shoots to be fun as well as easy going. We loved both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and received various compliments on them. We would definitely recommend Krista Watzel Photography!

Krista was truly amazing! We absolutely loved having her be a part of our wedding, and the pictures turned out amazing! We brought her with us for our destination wedding ceremony in Costa Rica and she felt more like family than our photographer. She is very friendly, professional, and most of all, an extremely talented photographer. I could not recommend her more highly!

Krista Watzel Photography was well worth the money! She was easy to talk to about what we wanted for both the engagement session and the wedding photography. The engagement session was a drive but she was up for the challenge of a freezing cold shoot in January in Breckenridge. Her photo journalistic approach made for some great detail shots at the wedding and made us feel at ease during the portraits.

Krista was absolutely fantastic! Simple as that. She did both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures and EVERYONE loved them! Photography was one of the most important things to us and we hit the mark with Krista.

From the start, she was there to answer the many questions we had because we were a bit clueless. I had a crazy busy schedule when we were trying to take our engagement pictures and she was able to take them in the almost non-existent spare time I had and give us awesome photos. We wanted our dogs in a couple pictures and she was extremely patient with us while one barked and the other, who is quite large, attracted every person that walked by for a quick hug and pat on the head.

The day of the wedding was just as smooth. She arrived at the villa and got right to work capturing every detail that we would want to remember or didn’t even notice. The pictures that we received were more than we could have imagined! The formal pictures, candids, and detail shots were fantastic. She gave us that perfect mix of artistic but not too touched up/altered photos (if you know what I mean...the perfect timeless photos). I cannot speak highly enough about Krista and her crew and would readily suggest her to anyone who needs a great photographer!

Krista was just SIMPLY THE BEST. She was so kind and delivered way more than we expected and was way more than a pleasure to have around on our special day. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am with our engagement and wedding photos. Words can not describe the pictures that she took at our wedding. She captured the feeling of the day, the emotions and then made us look more beautiful than ever. She is truly gifted and a pleasure to work.

Krista was absolutely wonderful. She is very friendly and easy to have around. She was always very quick to respond to any questions I had. At the wedding she was very thorough and professional. She got every formal picture we could ask for and all of the candids were amazing! She really does have an incredible eye. We got our pictures back quickly and I have to say they were wonderful. We love every one of them. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Krista was fantastic to work with from start to finish. She is professional, responds in a reasonable time to phone calls and emails, and listens well to requests. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable, which results in beautiful, real pictures. None of ours looked stuffy, posed or canned. With photography, you pay for what you get. Her prices are competitive, but the value truly comes through in the quality of the photos, the overal experience of working with such a fun lady, and the whole package. I would recommend, just from a stress standpoint, booking the unlimited package instead of one of the set hours - formals felt a little rushed, but still turned out beautifully. Such a pleasure to work with Krista, and we will definitely continue to use her as our family photographer!

Krista and her team were very professional and organized. Even though the day was hurried and crazy, we managed to get all the pictures we wanted and then some! Her photos were beautiful and I have received many compliments on them via my family, friends, and my blog (see examples here: http://franniepantz.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-wedding-part-one-apparel.html, here: http://franniepantz.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-wedding-part-two-ceremony.html and here: http://franniepantz.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-wedding-part-three-reception.html). We got our photos back in a very timely fashion (only about 5 weeks!) and she allows you to keep all the rights to the photos you get--no need to purchase only the photos that you want--which was a major plus. She coordinated with us every step of the way and helped us to think about things that we hadn't before. I loved using her and her team (we opted for two photographers and I would HIGHLY recommend this!) and would definitely recommend her to anyone!
