10/10 Highly recommend!

We are so glad that we choose Krystal and Mike to be apart of our day, over the years they have captured a lot of special moments(including our surprise engagement) so it only made sense to have them be a part of our wedding as well!
They are both the most amazing people to work with, they make everything feel so fun and easy, like spending time with friends.
Neither one of us are fond of being in front of a camera but working with them we felt so comfortable and the nerves disappeared.
They managed to capture every detail of the day and the end result is amazing! We absolutely love our photos!

Krystal also played a huge part in helping with the planning and recommending amazing vendors, it took so much stress out of the whole process! I can not thank her enough for this!

I would recommend Fly Free Photography to anyone looking for not only wedding pictures but even just family pictures! They are such a great team to work with. Love them so much!!

Remarkable Experience

Krystal was referred to us by one of our friends. We are so grateful that our paths crossed. From the beginning she took time to get to know us and understand our wedding vision. Krystal and her team really went the extra mile for us, showing up early to scope out the perfect area and pack down the snow to make it easier on everyone. They made the effort to include our dog into our big day. They gave us great direction and made us feel comfortable. We absolutely love our sneak peak pictures and we're so excited to see the whole gallery! They truly care about making your experience memorable. We recommend Krystal and her team!

Couldn’t ask for a better experience!✨🤍

We had an amazing day with them, they made us feel comfortable and let us come up with some of the picture ideas!
We went with the two photographer option, which allowed both our wedding parties to get ready and capture the entire moment and even sneak in some detail shots of our wedding getaway car. As for getting back the pictures... extremely impressive, took us 2 hours to go through them all on this nicely organized website and the quality of the photos made it feel like i was reliving the moment. The really captured all the details, even the ones I forgotten about as the day just flew by!

Hiking Wedding Elopement

Fly Free was amazing to work with for our hiking elopement! We did two engagement shoots with the team first and both came out better than we imagined! Meghan (photo) and Mike (video) hiked up a mountain with us at sunrise for our elopement ceremony, and the experience was incredible and made even better having that team with us. It was like going on a hike with friends. Krystal recommended our location and of course it was an absolutely perfect choice. She also put in alot of work including doing the hike prior to our wedding to find just the right spot up there to do our ceremony where the lighting would be just perfect, and helped with planning the timeline for that morning. We fully trusted her expert opinion and it all went off without a hitch! We received our sneaks back and it made me tear up and brought me right back to our day. Absolutely gorgeous photos that we will cherish forever and be so proud to share with our family and friends. Krystal was great with sharing wedding planning resources, and was very engaged from the day we hired her through to the wedding. I wouldn't choose anyone else to capture this special time of our lives. Thank you Fly Free Photography!!

Easiest & Best Decision We Made!

We cannot recommend Krystal and her team enough. Krystal and her entire team are AMAZING and helped with everything from start to finish.
Having beautiful photos of our wedding day was really important to us and so choosing the right photographer was crucial. From the very first meeting Krystal made us feel very secure and confident that we would get not only the best photos but the best experience from start to finish. She crafted very meaningful and special date nights for us throughout the process where we could sit down and dive deeper into our relationship and she could get to know us, as individuals and as a couple, better. She was always on top of organizing meetings, communicating with us and helping plan out a timeline of events for our day. Because of this, the day of our wedding went way smoother and was less stressful as well. Our photographers, Kait and Darine, showed up eager and ready to go the day of and were so happy and positive. They helped to keep both of us calm and on track and still found time to make meaningful connections with our guests. Everyone was blown away at their friendly nature and how truly amazing they are at what they do, and getting our photos back emphasized their talents even further. Our photos speak for themselves and show how talented and passionate Krystal and her entire team are about what they do. They not only were aesthetically stunning, but they truly captured our love for each other. They showed genuine laughs, happy tears and all the fun that was had at our wedding. We definitely feel like we made the best decision going with Krystal and her team and we, along with all of our guests, will rave about them any chance we get. You will not go wrong choosing FlyFree to capture your special moments!

Absolutely AMAZING team of Photographers!!

If you want someone with an amazing, creative, artistic vision, hire Krystal and her team at fly free!!

Fly Free captured my best friend's wedding two years ago now, which I had the honor of attending as a bridesmaid. And I knew instantly we would be hiring them when it was our turn!

Krystal and her team catch EVERY single detail. They make sure to know the venue and all the best spots before your big day, they know which direction the sun will hit at what times, and they will do whatever it takes to get the best shot of you. Whether that means climbing up a giant tree, or standing on a floating platform on the lake!

My ceremony ran 10 minutes late because my hair dresser was late completing my hair. Normally, this would freak me out but Krystal helped me keep my cool, reminded me it was MY day, and didn't even tell me what time it actually was (which would have freaked me out to hear!). She made sure we caught every single photo we wanted. And also got me sneak peaks within 2 business days which is wild.

Words cannot express how much gratitude we have, and we simply cannot wait to see our full album!


Edit: We got our album, TWO WEEKS EARLY! We were absolutely blown away. Every single detail was captured, and you could really see the story of our day and our lives together being told within the photos. If you want a great team of people to capture your day, and every moment in it, hire Fly Free!!

The difference between extraordinary and ordinary is that little “extra”. And that is Krystal at Fly Free

Feeling lucky to have found Krystal at Fly Free for our special day! Truly the best photographer I have ever met and I have so many good things to say!

The Fly Free team is professional, friendly, personable, full-of-life! They were my biggest cheerleaders leading up to the day, and on the day of. Happy to have met these wonderful souls! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Our friends and family are still raving about how incredible our photographers were.

Behind the scenes, Krystal was present in our planning process. She will go the distance — literally and figuratively! She met us wherever we needed, she will climb any tree or ladder to get the perfect shot, she will wear waterproof shoes and get wet so that you stay dry; she will be your best friend through this entire process. Making the planning process easier already sets Krystal apart from everyone else; now, combine that with her phenomenal work, she is worth every penny. Loved our engagement shoot with our pups. Squealing at the wedding photos! Take a look at some of the masterpieces that will be hung up in our home!

The difference between extraordinary and ordinary is that little “extra”. And that is Krystal. Thank you again!

Let me save you some searching: Fly Free is the best.

Our experience with Fly Free was better than I would've imagined from *any* photographer, bar none.
In searching for a wedding photographer, nearly every company's work was some combination of: Gloomy and desaturated, badly colour balanced, marred by weird and dated filters and overlays, or they chose photos that lacked personality and professionalism.

Fly Free's work is impeccable in all those areas. Great posed & candid photos that showcase the personalities of their subjects & the moment. Colour balancing that's tasteful, vibrant, and natural. A great sense for composition and lighting, and with enough stylistic variety that your album will never look same-y.

On top of that, they're a joy to work with. When they had a cancellation during our time slot, they immediately offered to add those two photographers to our shoot for no extra charge.

I don't plan on having another wedding anytime soon, but I'll gladly recommend Fly Free to anyone who is.

Best Wedding Experience

Krystal and her team at Fly Free were amazing. I cannot thank them enough for everything. Krystal and Megan were responsive, helpful and made us feel so special on our wedding day. Our wedding was very last minute and it was no problem for them. I could not have asked for someone better.

We had such a fantastic experience with Fly Free Photography right from beginning to end, and our wedding photos are so amazing!!!

You know when you're searching for a photographer to capture literally one of the most important events of your life, and you want someone that has a certain photography style and a great personality to work with and someone that communicates well and is creative and likes to laugh and have fun but is still professional? Well, we found literally all of that and more with Krystal and Kait at Fly Free Photography!

Right from the first "meet and greet" phone call through to proceeding with the contract and wedding plans, we felt so comfortable with Krystal and her team. She has a great online site and through our private account we were able to communicate easily with the team to fill out forms, see payment arrangements, and ask/answer questions. We filled out a very detailed questionnaire which gave us an opportunity to really convey who we are as a couple and what our vision for our wedding day was, and Krystal really took the time to fully understand what we were looking for. I can't emphasize enough how much we appreciated the amount of communication that took place between us and Krystal's team. We were never left wondering on anything, and they made sure they understood the schedule and timing for the day and regularly checked in with us to see if there had been any changes to plans.

We chose the photography package that included having two photographers on the day of our wedding, which was great as each of them were able to capture really special moments of both the Bride and Groom's parties getting ready for the wedding in their separate venues. It also gave two sets of eyes for unique perspectives on intimate photos of us as a couple, great venue shots of the ceremony and reception, and special moments with our guests.
We had given a list to Krystal and her team of specific photo opportunities we wanted with the wedding party and our families, and we were all amazed at how efficient they were at coordinating the different groups of people. We don't think we've ever seen a group photo session run so smoothly! No one got tired and antsy, everyone had fun…… and the photos turned out gorgeous!

We left immediately after our reception for our honeymoon, and while we were away, Krystal surprised us by sending a few sneak peak pictures of our special day. They were so beautiful and brought back so many memories from only a few days before. She gave us an estimate of when we could expect our full picture portfolio so we were never left wondering, and we received them right on time!

Words don't describe how happy and satisfied we are not only with our beautiful photos, but with the whole experience with Fly Free Photography. Krystal and her team went past just capturing pictures….. they captured the emotions of the day as well, and we will spend years lovingly looking at these photos and reliving every amazing moment.

My soul adores adventure and travel, being born & raised in Calgary, Ab I am lucky enough to have Banff National Park and the Rocky mountains literally in my back yard. I would love nothing more then to show you around & even take epic memories for you!

Even though I have so much beauty so close I love a good adventure that involves planes, trains and automobiles! I've been blessed to be able to travel to many places, a special place in my heart though is Costa Rica! I've been going so long I'm pretty much a local! ha! Which is a benefit to you guys if you are planning an elopement or wedding in Costa Rica, I know a lot of hidden gems!

To keep it simple, adventure should have been my middle name! Ha! I am a lover of sunsets, peppermint tea, puppies and no matter where in the world you guys are planning to confess your love I would love to help you plan an adventure that is outside the "standard" wedding quo and unique to your love for each other.
