Absolutely Amazing. Christal came out and did 8 hours shots of our Big Tongan Wedding…and if you know or have been to a traditional Tongan wedding then you will know that it is not easy being a photographer when you have over 350+ guests. She made sure the process was easy and that we were relaxed and had a lot of fun with our shoot. we love our photos.

Christal was an amazing photographer of our wedding. She has a great eye and attention to the small details. Her energy on the day was fabulous and made us all feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She captured the emotion and feeling of our wedding. Christal that morning sent through a handful of photos so we could reminisce over our day. The post production was all very professional and we love our photos. I would highly recommend twin lotus for all photography needs. She will capture the essence of your special moment in her photography.
