Hi!  I'm Crystal VanAntwerpen.  I am based out of Muskegon, Michigan, and I do portrait sessions and weddings around West Central Michigan.  I started shooting portraits and weddings in 2012 and currently photograph a wedding almost every weekend during the summer and fall months.  That photo above is of me.  Its a little silly, because its important to have a little fun with things!  I'm young enough to have fun and old enough to understand the responsibility of handling an event that doesn't have any "do overs".

I know you are here because you probably want to know a little bit more about me, to see if we are the right fit for each other.  I started my business in the spring of 2012 with my husband Christian (formerly known as CVK Photography) and now we each run our own photography businesses.  Christian is a professional keyboardist and plays for a few different bands, so if you're thinking of hiring a band instead of a DJ, we have options!

My shooting style for weddings is mostly photojournalistic with minimal posing, other than for the bridal party and family shots.  I like to keep things clean and natural with just a very subtle film look when it comes to post-processing.  I cannot stress the word SUBTLE enough when it comes to processing.  I like things crisp.  I do this because it tends to be a very timeless look. 

Random facts about me:

If you have an animal, I need to pet and/or cuddle it, <3
I'm a singer and love photographing concerts and going to concerts
My 2 best friends have a 20 year age difference
If I could eat nothing but ice cream, I'd be ok with that
Life should always include a lot of random road trips
My craft stash is entirely too big

Please email me using my contact form if this sounds like what you are looking for and I'll be happy to set up an in-person consult or a phone consult, depending on your preferences!
