Jamie and Crystaline Photography were GREAT!!! I just looked at our wedding pictures online and they are ALL wonderful!! GREAT JOB!!! They also did a photo booth for us. This was a huge hit!! I highly recommend the photo booth for you and your guest. And I recommend even higher (can I do that? Oops, I just did) Crystaline Photography to do it!!!
We just received our wedding photo proofs back from Jamie at Crystaline Photo this past weekend and the first thing I wanted to do was thank her. She did an amazing job. We got every shot that we requested and then some. Jamie was completely invisible the whole time, I have no idea how she got so many great photographs. Since you can't be in more than one place at your wedding, it was a huge surprise to me that Jamie captured so many moments that we missed but now feel like we were a part of. My mother's first comment after she saw the proofs was, "I feel like I didn't miss a single part of the wedding with all of the photographs!" We also had Jamie's husband Mike of Digital DJ do our ceremony and reception music and we received so many positive comments from our guests on his music selection. They made our event just perfect and went above and beyond. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you both!
Jamie and Mike Striplin were wonderful to work with and did everything we asked for and more. They helped make our day the most memorable day of our life with beautiful pictures to show off!!!!
Jamie and Mike were wonderful. Not uptight, flexible with our wants and needs. Very professional - seemed to enjoy their work. They really helped make our daughter's day special and the memories they helped us create were beautiful.
Jamie and everyone with Crystaline Photo was amazing to work with. Jaime was able to meet with us before our ceremony so I knew that she had a clear idea if what kind of pictures we wanted. When I saw our pictures, I was amazed. They were more beautiful and creative that I ever imagined. Months after our special day I still can't stop looking at them. I have not seen any other photographer's picture that impress me as much as Jaime's. Also, our weddin video was so professionally done. Every moment we would want captured was captured beautifully! I will continually recommend Crystaline Photo to anyone who desires creative, beautiful, and timeless pictures!

Chrystaline Photography did an amazing job with our wedding photos. Jamie, our photographer, was flexible with our day and the planning of our wedding. She had a wide variety of packages to choose from and worked with our budget. She took pictures of everything to help us remember our unbelievable day! Our package also included a beautiful wedding album that she designed based off of the pictures we chose. We ended up with amazing pictures! We are so thankful for such beautiful pictures to help us remember our wedding day!!
Jamie at Crystaline Photography was awesome!! From the first meeting to arriving early and staying late to finishing my wedding album - she was great through the entire process. She was very professional, in fact I didn't even notice her during the ceremony, but she caught every moment. She took so many great pictures.

Wonderful job at a great rate!
Jamie Waite with Crystaline Photography did a fantastic job on our wedding photos. She was so professional and unobtrusive, yet got all the photos of our wedding we wanted and then some! I would recommend to everyone in need of a photographer.

We have worked with Crystaline Photography at many weddings and events. They always have a professional demeanor and create beautiful images.
Crystalline did a wonderful job on a recent wedding in Conifer - they really made my bouquets, personals and decor pop!
Having been in the wedding industry for many years, I was familiar with the work of Jamie Striplin and Crystaline Photography and knew I wanted her to shoot my wedding. I was so happy when she was available for the date! She is organized and professional so the formal pictures went smoothly and quickly and didn’t interfere with our enjoyment of the day. During the ceremony, I barely noticed her at all. She was never intrusive during the entire event. Then when we got the photos back – amazingly within two weeks – we were so impressed!! She had captured the essence of our wedding celebration with skillful artistry. I would not hesitate to recommend Crystaline Photography and multimedia to anyone.

Jamie does a jaw droppingly amazing job with the work that she does. Not only is she very professional and prompt but she's very personable and a joy to be around. She is truly the most highly suggested photographer that i will work with. She is more than awesome! Her photography and eye for detail is remarkable. WE LOVE HER
It's always a pleasure to work with true professionals! I recommend them highly.
Unique and beautiful photographs.
Jamie and her associates do a wonderful job! They always have the formals done in a timely matter... making our job of getting the party started on time easier and they always have fun fantastic shots and video! We love working together!
2.) Time Management. Speaking of guests with cameras. No one really likes taking the formals as it cuts into party time, and I really strive to keep it under an hour. You get a disk of all your photos so think about that every time we have to stop and let a family member take a picture between poses. This is time away from the reception and the fun photos that I love to take of just the two of you!
3.) H20 - A few weddings I've been to provided bottled water for the guests... I thought that was a wonderful idea... especially for outdoor weddings. Or at the very least someone (ie maid of honor) should be standing by with water for the bride & groom, since they can't travel too far during the formals... Photos take a while and you can become parched and tired during the session... Again especially in the hot sun... I don't want anyone passing out on me!
4.) The Bride & Groom Session. Really it should just be the two of you and me. If we have an entourage of 10 people following us, it's kind of hard to make it romantic and intimate... Just so you know.
5.) Surprises! If someone is doing something special for the bride & groom I'd like to know about it beforehand. I'd hate to miss it because I was covering something else... And I can keep a secret... I promise!
6.) Show Off Your Dress. Your dress in the plastic bag that says "David's Bridal" etc. isn't that pretty.... Take it out of the bag before we arrive... Hang it somewhere nice like on a doorway, a mirror, or a bedpost... This way we can get some great up close details of it... This makes awesome background images in the albums I design.
7.) Feeling Good! You should feel GREAT and rested on the day of your wedding... I highly discourage bachelor and bachlorette parties the night before your wedding. Or heavy drinking the day of or before the ceremony... While I know it's your wedding and I don't want to tell you what to do... it does make a huge difference on your well being on your special day! Imagine having a headache all day or feeling ill as you greet guest after guest and smile for photographs. Having a hangover, it can, and probably will show in your photographs and I won't be able to retouch that out later.
8.) Special Requests - I am always happy to fulfill any special shot requests at anytime, by any member of your family! Just let me know... as our packages state... the photos are unlimited for our contracted times. So no matter how wacky, weird, or how large the group... I'm there to serve you and make sure every possible moment is captured! Likewise, if I make a special request for a moment of your time to do a photograph please consider it... because even if it feels weird or takes up some extra time it may make the difference between your everyday wedding photos and ones that when people look at them they say “Wow!”
9.) Other Neat Tricks I’ve Picked Up - I usually carry a bridal emergency kit with me to weddings, but in case I forget or run out of an item here’s what you should have in it:
1. Needle & Thread to fix clothing items. 2. A Tide Pen or White Chalk to remove stains from your dress. (Sticking with white wine or champagne for the event is your best beverage choice.) 3. Scissors (Someone almost always needs these at a wedding for one reason or another) 4. Feminine Hygiene Products, Hey stress does weird things to your body’s chemistry! 5. Tape & Glue (I’ve seen them used to fix everything from a heel to the candle stands) 6. Tissues for inevitable crying. 7. Nail File & Polish not only fixes broken nails, but stocking runs. 8. Extra bobby pins and hair ties. 9. Antacid, Tylenol, band-aids, & mints!
10.) Take it All In! Last, but certainly not least enjoy your day... This may be your one and only opportunity in life to feel like a rock star! You may be wearing the most expensive gown you've ever worn, you've had your hair and make-up put on special... And every one of your friends and family is there to celebrate with you! Enjoy it! Allow the day to just happen... Let everyone else pamper you! Carpe Diem! And don't worry your photos and videos are going to be awesome!
