    My Story

    Hi there! My name is Crystal Allen, I'm a natural light wedding photographer based in Southern Indiana serving the Greater Louisville area. I spent 2 years in front of the camera doing small modeling jobs here and there right out of high school and realized, at a whole 5foot2inches, modeling wasn't really going to go anywhere big for me.

    After I was married, a photographer I'd previously shot with asked me to do another shoot with him in my wedding gown in exchange for a camera. He followed through and I was the proud owner of a Canon 20D (which was like gold to me at the time!). An instant love was found and so, my story behind the camera begins. In 2009 I did one mentor session with that photographer (who is, sadly, no longer shooting) and hit the ground running.2

    My Why

    Photography is so much more than just 'capturing memories' to me. Dementia has made an appearance in my family. My grandmother has been fully affected by this disease and my uncle, at age 62, is now battling dementia as well. My memory has always been fleeting and I have very few memories from my early adult life. That terrifies me. But photographs... Through photographs I can remember. And so my entire reason for shooting. The memories, The moments, The feelings, The emotions. While they are so fleeting, with this camera I'm able to memorialize every little detail. The tiny curls, the father's tears, the wide-eyed innocent smiles, the pristine white dress. With this camera nothing is forgotten.


    This gorgeous wedding was on June 25, 2016 and you'd think it would've been scorching... well, it was! But regardless of the relentless heat, Justin & Andrea  were the perfect bride/groom duo at the perfect, private venue on what ended up being the perfect day. This is their wedding story Justin & Andrea's love for each other is the most prominent thing that stood out about their wedding... But without these images, what might be forgotten? The details? The look on his face during the First Look? The way the sun fell that day? Invest time into finding a wedding photographer for your big day that is enthusiastic about helping you remember everything about your wedding, through images, for the rest of your life.

    xoxo Crystal

    Wedding & Lifestyle Photography

    Hello there! My name is Madison Warner Dahlin. I've been a lifestyle and wedding photographer for 7 years or so. Let me say one thing, I LOVE photographing people! Working with my clients has brought me so many wonderful friends. In college I studied photography and art. Over the years of weddings, engagement sessions, family portraits etc, I've come to see the joy in each of my clients' unique story. Looking through my lens, I've been able to see, as well as show, sides to people that they probably didn't see in themselves.

    One of my favorite weddings in which I photographed was that of a great friend and her adorable husband. Letty and Jameson met in Bolivia. They married about two years later in Sacramento, California, close to Letty's home town. Not only are they one of the most hilarious and carefree couples I know, but they are stunning together.

    As a photographer, it's important that I help the couple feel comfortable with me present, so comfortable in fact that they almost forget that I'm there clicking away as they enjoy each other. Letty and Jameson didn't need my help to look beautiful in frame after frame because their happiness stole the show!

    Seeing Jameson's face light up as Letty walked through the live oak trees to meet him had me grinning like a fool behind my canon. Letty ordered her dress from a "non brand" dress shop online and then had is customized to match her style. Their wedding's color scheme consisted of emerald green, grey, pinks and creamy white. Letty did an amazing job in selecting her reception venue, Beerman's Brewery in Lincoln, CA. Later that night, after the wedding, they had a formal dinner and tons of crazy fun dancing! I could hardly shoot fast enough to follow them around the dance floor- this couple has MOVES!

    A large part of why I claim this wedding to be a favorite of mine, (besides the fact that I adore the couple) is because of the light and airy feel we had in our images. They were wed on the last day of April- which speaks of the change between spring to summer. I have a hard time choosing which season is my favorite, but I have to say, April is a divine month to be wed.

    Photographs can capture love, friendship and passion through every little detail. What can I say? I love my job.
