 This is how Meatball really feels about getting his picture takem. LOL

Switching to thumb drives

For the past three years I have been giving disks with my sessions and weddings. As I am transitioning into a NEW and improved Crystal Reyns Photography, I am changing quite a bit. :) One of these things is to switch over to thumb drives, thanks to my wonderful photog friend Erica Stanley of Hildebrandt Photography.

Switching to thumb drives will allow you as my client to be able to bring back the thumb drive (for a discount off of session) to reload your new images. :) I will still keep all of my edits, but this will get rid of your home filling with disks that can be scratched or broken. Also, these can be used on the ipad where the ipad will not take a disk, and some older computers and laptops will not read DVDs.

Here is a preview of what my thumb drives look like, yes it is an iphone pic. :/

Behind the scenes of Crystal Reyns Photography l Central Va Wedding and Portrait Photographer

I have never done a behind the scenes blog before. As I am entering my forth year of photography, I find it is very important to learn your photographer and who you may be working with. I have had Katelyn on my team for a little over a year, we are a lot alike and there really is never a dull moment. We like to have fun, laugh, give each other stupid looks, dance like fools, and Katelyn is an 'amazing' singer.......JUST KIDDING.

2013 I am dedicating to offer more and better for my clients. :) This is not just for weddings, but also for certain types of sessions like seniors and boudoirs/ pin-ups. :)

A few weekends ago I got to work with the lovely Victoria, that I still want to call Veronica....HORRIBLE right?!?! I don't know why, and I actually really good with names. :P But she was game to help me promote my new SENIOR EXPERIENCE!!!

Victoria fit right in with myself and Katelyn, a little ball of fun that took great direction, and let me tell you she was quite the trooper for the day as it was cold and windy.

Myself and Katelyn always try to take good pictures, but they always end up like the one to your right...hehehe :)
