Your Vacation Photographer in Paris: Meet Krystal

Meet Krystal

***Please note: Krystal will be unavailable for shoots in Paris from December 21, 2017 to January 25, 2018.

An American living in Paris, I have spent the last eight years traveling and photographing the world. My style is natural and modern. As a woman, I feel I pay extra attention to the details that other women may worry about as well, such as hair, clothing, and makeup malfunctions. It's my job to make you forget the camera is even there and make you look your best!

Three Things

  1. When I'm not taking photos, I love to write. I work for several Parisian Lifestyle magazines. 
  2. I can't live without dark chocolate, definitely…
  3. I once spent a year caring for four French children. I spoke NO French and they spoke NO English. It was maybe the most terrifying and enlightening year of my life.

Favourite Place to Shoot in Paris
I love classic cafés and secret hideaway streets with iconic Parisian backdrops around the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre.

Customer Love for Krystal

"My daughter and I have always had a very close relationship, and on this trip we bonded even closer. We had experiences that made us stronger individually, saw inspired and inspiring sights, and made memories that will feed our souls for ever. Our Flytographer photographs make our memories feel less abstract...they are tangible and visual reminders of our incredible Summer of 2014. We LOVED our photographer Krystal, and really appreciate the tips she gave us about the city. We love Flytographer!"— Kate (see more photos from this special shoot)

"We had so much fun during our shoot in Paris. Krystal was great to work with and was able to make sure we were comfortable. Our photos capture us being ourselves, rather than posing in a way that looks unnatural. I am so grateful for the photos we have of us near the Eiffel Tower - they will truly be cherished for the rest of our lives! Every trip deserves to be remembered in a special way and Flytographer makes it possible!" — Tesia

"It was priceless to me that Krystal did an hour-long session with us---it felt like the whole proposal lasted an extra hour, that it wasn't just this moment that happened.

"Kryrstal was awesome!  We were both feeling uncomfortable about the photo shoot in a public place but she made us feel right at ease and enjoy it.  She had a variety of locations, both typical landmarks and some more unique spots that we loved and wouldn't have found on our own. She helped preserve lasting memories of our fabulous honeymoon in Paris." - Erin

"Krystal was such a joy to work with in planning our marriage proposal. The photoshoot following the engagement was a blast!

All of the pictures turned out stunning and will forever be in our family." -Hunter

"Krystal was so helpful in making our vision into reality. She captured the most exciting moment in our lives, and that in the most beautiful city. Krystal was fantastic in communicating with us before and throughout the shoot. She made the photoshoot fun and made us feel relaxed, which made it so much more enjoyable." - DK

"We were all grumpy and I was convinced this shoot is going to be a disaster. When Krystal came, she immediately saw the "situation" and quickly helped us turn it around. She was warm and put us at ease and was extremely good with directions for what she wanted us to do or how to "pose". She was great with adults and kids (not everybody can do that). She even attempted to fix my useless hair on a few occasions! I love the different locations/feels she chose to shoot our photos. She was also quick to embrace a few suggestions I made to her (barrettes or a photo by a stone bench with graffiti for a bit of an edgier feel). A fantastic talented photographer and a lovely person." - Vera

"Neither Sam nor I are particularly camera friendly and more often than not take awkward photos with weird faces than good ones we want to keep. Krystal made us feel comfortable right away and really captured what we were feeling - which was pure happiness - without us worrying about feeling awkward or self-conscious." - Sam

"We love our pictures!  Krystal did an amazing job of capturing our son and making sure that we all looked our best in the pictures.  I'm so happy that we decided to do this." - Michelle

"Krystal was fantastic! She made us feel totally comfortable, gave helpful direction, and made sure that we were looking our best. She was knowledgeable about the area and was able to capture some great images." - Valeri

"Our Flytographer Shoot with Krystal was the highlight of our trip!" - Erin

"Krystal was so fun, and the pictures were absolutely fantastic! She made it a fun part of our vacation, and now we have the excellent memories too." - JW

"Honestly, without ever having been, I wouldn't have been able to scout out a better location in Paris without Krystal's help. I wanted the city to be a recognizable scene but I also didn't want to pop the question in a sea of tourists. Krystal had the perfect spot on the Seine in mind.  And now I'll have the expression on my now fiancee's face in that moment captured forever. Worth every penny." - Mitchy
