Welcome! I'm Dylan, a wedding photographer based in Boulder, Colorado. I photograph close-knit gatherings of family and friends hosted by couples who want timeless, beautiful and authentic photographs. We may be perfect for each other if:
DYLAN CROSSLEY PHOTO
COLORADO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
The thing you're most looking forward to is having all of your family and friends in the same place for your wedding.
That, and the dance floor.
You plan every detail but don't sweat the small stuff. You put lots of thought into planning your wedding so that when it comes, you can relax and enjoy it.
You love to travel.
If that sounds like you, then read on to see why choosing the right photographer is so freakin' important!
I'm by your side when you're zipping your dress (and let's be honest, slipping into spanx) or youtubing how to tie a bowtie. I'll re-pin your best man's boutonniere when it gets crushed by hugs, and I'm there with a tissue when your mom's tears are threatening to make you cry, too. I'm there when you see each other for the first time. I'm helping you to get into the moment when you don't know what to do with your hands, Ricky Bobby style. I'm helping you to bustle. I'm showing you how to cut the cake and then checking your face to see if there's rogue icing on your chin. Bottom line: On your wedding day, I'm always nearby ready to lend a hand, keep you calm, offer advice from well over one hundred weddings worth of experience, and of course - document the best day of your life.
My style is vibrant and timeless for the young at heart with classic taste. When we're taking portraits, I like to keep things moving, and I keep the mood light and fun. I'll send my second photographer to grab your signature cocktails for you, and I'll sweep you off to the most photogenic areas at your venue, which I know because I got there early to location scout. I'll remind you to stay present, because the day passes too quickly. In the end, I want your photographs to be a true representation of you, and the day you put so much energy into planning.
"It truly felt like Dylan was a part of the entire planning process; she took part in getting to know my husband and I as a couple, our interests, and families in order to bring our pictures to life. I could truly see where the pieces of our personality were incorporated into the photos. Dylan definitely did her homework on the venue as well and researched the best shot spots at The Keystone Ranch prior to our big day. This helped photos move quickly while still getting pictures of a lifetime. I feel anyone would be lucky to have Dylan photograph their wedding or event! She is thoughtful, talented, creative, and reliable! If we could have Dylan with us for every life moment we absolutely would!"

If I weren't a photographer I'd be a full-time cat mom who would spend my days doing yoga, booking flights, and working my way through one of my many cookbooks. Food is my love language, and no day should end without a glass of wine in hand, sitting on the couch talking about my day with my boyfriend. It's what we've been doing for seven years, and we'll still be doing it when we're seventy. I speak French, love to hike, and can't finish a TV show (with the notable exception of Game of Thrones).
I photographed my first wedding in 2014 and something fell into place with a satisfying click. Since then I've pressed the shutter thousands of times. Heading into my fifth year as a wedding photographer I can tell you: it just keeps getting better and better.
I've lived many places including Pittsburgh, London, Provence, and Vail. Boulder has been my home since 2013 but I get anxiety when I don't have my next flight booked. I've got passport fever, and my friends will tell you that I could talk all day about which credit card has the best points system. Check out my travel schedule and let me know if we should meet for a session this year in Joshua Tree National Park, on the coast in Portugal, or beneath the redwoods in northern California.
Variety is the spice of life and I don't just use my talents for couples on their wedding day. I'll help you look good for an updated head shot or business branding session, and I love event photography. See below for each service that I offer.
