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 an amazing photographer! Great quality, great price, so friendly! We ended up needing an extra hour and she stayed last minute to accommodate our special day. We are planning on family pictures through Krista as well. I would highly recommend her for any special occasion.

Krista was so much fun to work with. She did our engagement and wedding photos and they came out beautifully, we received so many compliments on almost all of them. I like her creativity in the photos and the way she uses light and the natural background. If there is any other need for photography I would not hesitate to use Krista again.

Krista is AMAZING! I've known her for a few years and have been quite impressed with her professionalism and artistic eye. I don't think I really appreciated just how truly gifted she is until she captured OUR wedding in June. She has a way of 'thinking outside the box' and really capturing the moment. She literally took a photo of every little detail we put into our wedding and gave us a visual of every memory we have of our day. Krista is amazing. I would recommended her for any of your photography needs. She is an amazing artist and an even greater human being.

Prior to my wedding day, I had only met Krista a few times and had spoken via email and phone a few more, however that day she felt like one of my oldest friends. She blended right in with my family and friends and made everyone comfortable. During the actual ceremony and reception she was never in the way (in fact I was always surprised when I turned around and she happened to be there), but somehow she managed to capture EVERY moment (and some I didn't even know happened!) Krista was absolutley amazing and bent over backwards...sometimes literally, to give us what we wanted.

I found Krista at a Bridal shower that I attended in Boulder and immediately fell in love with her pictures! She had the style that we were looking for and along with that, she was very friendly and I felt comfortable with her right away, which I think is important when you are looking for a photographer. Her prices are unbeatable and she really listened to what we wanted in a photographer. On the day of our wedding, she was very organized and got through our posed pictures at a nice pace, so that we could get to our reception and enjoy the rest of the evening. We wanted mostly candid photos of our guests having a good time and she definitely captured those moments. I would definitely recommend Krista Watzel Photography if you are looking for a great price, awesome pictures and an easy going and friendly Photographer. We will definitely be using her again in the furture.

We found Krista Watzel by attending a bridal show. My husband and I went in looking for photographers only. We gathered info and talked to each photographer there. We compared price, portfolio, packaging, photo rights and personality. From the beginning Krista took the cake. Her portfolio was amazing and her prices were straight forward. We immediately booked her and are so happy that we did. We got our engagement photos done by her also and they came out amazing! So amazing that a fellow bride to be I know booked her after seeing our photos. It was the first time my husband and I had professional photos done and we were a bit nervous. She made us feel comfortable and we had a blast. Her attentiveness and personality helped us relax and enjoy the shoot. At our April 19th wedding she was on time, took a ton of photos, had top of the line equipment, was well dressed and made sure to get all of the photos I requested. I am very excited to see the photos from our big day. If our engagement photos came out as well as they did I can only imagine how breath taking our wedding photos came out. We are already planning our next family photo session with her. If you are looking for high quality at a reasonable price from a real professional I highly suggest you book Krista for your event.

Krista is absolutely great to work with! We truly enjoyed her spirit, creativity, and flexibility. Weddings can be hectic, with so many family members and portraits to get done in a short amount of time, and Krista did it all magnificently and with such grace. We really appreciated having a mix of black/white and color photos as well as the fun-natured and photo-journalistic aspects. Krista was able to capture special and unique moments from our wedding day that we will forever treasure.

From the first day Krista met with us, we knew she was "the one!" She brought with her great examples of her work, took the time to answer all of our questions with detail - which left us feeling confident that the same attentiveness would be shown the day of our wedding. There was never a moment she didn't reply via e-mail or text if we had inquiries leading up to our special day.

We were lucky to have her take our engagement pictures prior to November 11th and the experience made us feel like we were the center of the world! She made sure we were comfortable and let us have fun with it, which helped give us an idea of what to expect from her.

The day of the wedding, she was right on time and got to work immediately. She took the time to look stunning and professional. All her equipment was easily at reach and ready to go. The attention to detail is shown in the images she captured of the venue, the candids, our guests, and especially our family.

Through her beautiful work she has given us the gift of always being able to look back at the most important day of our lives!
