I spent the day helping Crystal Heis photograph a wedding. She’s a real pro at this stuff. She knows how to pose people, and how to make them look their best. She even knows how to make an impromptu boutonniere when necessary. All her hard work makes my role fun and easy. I’m the camera off to the side; the camera that gets to go find fun stuff to shoot because I’m not busy herding cats like she is, which is essentially what it’s like when photographing large groups ready for an adult beverage.


This photograph is from Cassie and Jeff Whitehouse’s wedding in 2013. It was my second wedding with Crystal. I was both a guest and a photographer as Cassie is the daughter of my Rental Sister, Pam Bick. That makes her my Rental Niece. Cassie married one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met. It was a gorgeous wedding for two of my favorite people, and to get to photograph their special day with my bestie Crystal made it all the sweeter. I wouldn’t do weddings with anyone else but Crystal. She’s just that awesome, like Cassie and Jeff.

    Kopana you are an amazing photographer and we cherish all the beautiful pics you took at Lisa’s and Brett’s wedding. And the photos taken at Cassie’s and Jeff’s wedding are equally beautiful. It was fun to watch you and Crystal work as a team. You can tell that you were both having fun too.

    You made me cry…but then I am in that kind of mood. So wonderful to see that beautiful picture and two of my favorite people but then I am prejudiced. Love you, girl!!!
