​About KTP
  
Why I started my Photography business:
When I was organizing the memorial for my husband’s grandmother.  We discovered that we really didn’t have very many photographs of this amazing woman.  We gathered all of the photographs in all of the cupboards, boxes and in all of the drawers. 

From that moment on I made a promise to myself to make sure that I was present in photographs even if my hair and make-up wasn’t done.  I want to make sure that I have as many photographs as possible with my family and myself.  

Why Wedding Photography:
I don’t normally disclose this because I love my husband dearly, and I don’t define our marriage by one day.  However, my wedding day did not go as planned.  And without going into too much detail, I didn’t have a voice for MY day.  I thought others had my best interest in mind when helping, and that wasn’t the case.  I cried all day that day and it was NOT happy tears. 

I chose to specialize in wedding photography because I swore I never wanted anyone else to feel the same way I did on one of the most important days of their lives.  For the most part you have ONE wedding day, and if you have never been married before you have no idea how the day is supposed to unfold, what can go wrong and how to fix it. 

My goal as a wedding photographer is to make sure that your day goes as smooth as possible. And to make sure that happens I have created TWO magazines that you will receive when you book with Krystal Thornton Photography, along with a modifiable timeline and check-list.

What to expect during a session:
During the session I don’t really pose people.  We walk, talk and it is more like friends hanging out and having fun.  I encourage my clients to keep moving and interacting between each other.  BE YOURSELF!  I want to capture you enjoying your loved ones, and loving them with every ounce of your being.   I have perfected my system during sessions to be able to capture what I am looking for in a short time.  I am super laid back and energetic during a session.  And when you book with me, you receive your FREE “Tips and Tricks” magazine to help you prepare for your session!

My Legacy for KTP:
My goal for KTP is to capture photographs that my clients will keep forever.  I know that if they keep these photographs, I will be remembered forever, and I want to remembered as someone that helped, that was fun, kind, honest and delivered the best customer service out there. This is why I encourage complete honestly between my clients and myself.
