The most beautiful moments in life deserve unforgettable images!
My goal is simple, to create beautiful, natural and stylish photographs that capture your story from the biggest moment to the smallest detail, the intimate gestures and raw emotions. All done in a friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive way. My style for photographing weddings and portraits is documentary with a touch of posed. I love being a Peterborough photographer! It’s more then just taking pictures, it’s documenting that very important moment in your life.
I invite you to read my blog where you can view my work containing weddings and baby beginnings including labour and delivery among other things.
Whether in my Peterborough home studio or on location, I love capturing life's special moments. These include weddings, labour and deliveries, maternity, newborn and families. I am passionate about all types of photography.
My most recent passion has been with more intimate sessions containing boudoir and milkbath bonding sessions with baby and momma. I enjoy every moment spent creating special memories to cherish for all the years that follow.
I am based out of Peterborough Ontario, but LOVE LOVE LOVE to travel!
I look forward to meeting you and capturing your stunning moments and memories that are guaranteed to be cherished for years to come. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule your session.
I downloaded my photos today and I wanted to say that they are amazing and I love them! I am quite body conscious most of the time, but you do wonderful work and have made me feel really beautiful. I definitely want to have a photo book made, it will be the perfect gift for my fiance.
If you are looking for someone amazing to do your wedding look no further than Crystal Jessup! She is so wonderful! So helpful, amazing with children and will give you photos to die for! I'm so glad we made the super easy decision of having you as our photographer. Couldn't have had anyone better.

Thank you so much!!! Those are absolutely adorable!!! We will have to make an appointment to do her cake smash pictures lol. But honestly thank you I cried they were so adorable!!!
Absolutely loved her personality! She was amazing and patient with us. I’ve never had my 2 year old NOT cry during a photo shoot and he was happy and even dancing! So excited to see how the photos turn out 😍
We were married on Oct 6 2018, and Crystal covered our special day. She was the consummate photographer, and we could not have asked for a better one to do our engagement and wedding. Everyone loved her - from our family to the guests, and especially my now-husband and I. We highly recommend her, and would definitely get her again for future photography needs!

Just had our engagement shoot today with crystal and she was awesome. She really got my fiancé out of his shell and I can't wait to use her for our wedding day as well.
Crystal was super patient while doing our wedding photos in the 40+ heat and while I was ready to just run to somewhere cool, she reminded us that we would one day look back on these pictures and be sad if we missed some of the key shots! Looking forward to getting the final photos from our wedding day! Thanks Crystal!!
great personality and photographer
I highly recommend Crystal! We have used her a couple times now! She just did a newborn shoot for us and I cannot express how amazing she was with our baby, Crystal is definitely a baby whisper. She was also great in directing us and our two year old in the shoot. We are also obsessed with the photos!

“Incredible memories captured in the most memorable way!
We had the pleasure of having Crystal capture our photos of our wedding day. Our path originally led us to Crystal with her extremely affordable budget and packages. Little did we know she would blow us out of the water. Crystal managed to capture the most candid and beautiful photos from our big day. We cant get enough of them. We recommend crystal to anyone and everyone that is looking for a photographer. Not only does she bring talent and creative skill, her bubbly and outgoing personality puts you at ease right away. She made us feel so comfortable during our sessions that it felt like we have known her for years.
We look forward to working with crystal in the future!”

“Crystal is simply amazing!
Ok, so, I can't begin to recommend Crystal enough. She was absolutely awesome as our wedding photographer. She made myself, my husband, and our whole crew comfortable and relaxed with taking photos even though we are notorious for not always being the most photogenic. She rolled with all of our punches (and non stop laughter) and she caught so many beautiful (and hilarious!) moments. By the end of the night, we just wanted to ask her to put down the camera and stay a while, she was that good at making sure everybody had a good time and felt like a million bucks. If you are getting married in the Kawarthas, Crystal in the photographer to look out for 😍”
