LYNN JOHNSON  -- PHOTOJOURNALIST

Cristal Wallin

Cristal is a proud Queer Chicana feminist photographer.  After getting two higher education degrees, she fell into wedding photography after seeing images of non-traditional couples doing things their own way.  She felt a strong pull to document folks making decisions about what love looks like to them, and not compromising their values for societal standards, so she picked up a camera and found herself shooting a friend’s queer wedding 7 years ago.  Since then, she got married and had an intimate wedding with her wife, complete with a backyard BBQ; chose to focus her business, Cristal Veronica Photos, solely on LGBTQ folks and people of color; and always feels super honored when folks seek her out as a photographer based on her niche. 

Cristal’s work has been featured in Buzzfeed, F*Yeah Gay Weddings, H&H Weddings, and Catalyst Wedding Magazine.  In addition to photography, Cristal also works in higher education.  Cristal lives in San Francisco with her wife Shimina and furkid/rescue pup Magdalena; enjoys being a Tia; is constantly thinking of future tattoo ideas; wishes Tupac was still alive and making music; and is always craving sushi and donuts.
