Fresno Wedding Photographer

Meet Crystalina

My name is Crystalina Ihde.

How do you pronounce "Ihde?" It's just like "Hide" but without the "H."

Hello, I'm so glad you're here! I just recently changed my last name from "Sosa" to "Ihde." Just wanted to point that out incase you knew me from my previous name! I'm a family and wedding photographer based in Fresno California. You may be a little nervous in front of the camera, please don't worry, most of us are. (I'm still working on it myself) Haha. I try my best to make it more fun and relaxed. I believe it's not just a photo, it's a memory. One of the many things I love about photography is having the opportunity to capture your story, your memories, feelings and freezing that moment for you forever. Thank you for giving me the opportunity, I can't wait to hear from you!

The Team

Crystalina & Ryan

My husband/second shooter

The dream team. I wanted to give my husband a proper introduction on my website so you'd all feel comfortable when I bring him along to capture your special memories. His name is Ryan and he's been my number one supporter for my passion. He's the one that helped guide me into discovering my passion and I couldn't be more grateful. He's a photographer now himself and I am so proud with how much better he's gotten (with my guidance of course haha.) He's wanting to get into videography so keep an eye out for some video and photo packages soon!

My Photography & Editing Style

View my work

I am a natural light emotive family & wedding photographer. I like to capture a lot of movement and will occasionally ask my clients to pose. You won't see a lot of props in my photos or perfectly posed children. I love to capture those genuine smiles and laughs. I feel like it really brings more warmth and emotions to a photograph. As for editing I love using warm earthy and vibrant tones. My signature style includes neutral colors, desaturated whites with an appreciation for shadows and contrast.

"Your love deserves to be documented in a unique and beautiful way."
