When I'm not behind the lens, I'm a devoted wife and proud dog mama to two adorable doodles. Our cozy little slice of heaven is nestled in the picturesque beauty of Niagara Falls.
Weddings are more than just a job to me; they're my absolute jam. With so many years of experience under my belt, I've honed my skills to the point where I never worry about missing a shot or things going awry. I always say, my backups have backups, and I'm practically prepared for any scenario. But beyond capturing those picture-perfect moments, I'm your wedding day bestie.
I'm all about keeping the vibe relaxed, fun, and carefree because, let's be honest, your day should be about enjoying the moment. That's the secret to those incredible candid photos that truly capture the essence of your love story. I've become a pro at corralling large groups and navigating any potential family drama - consider me your professional people wrangler!
But what I cherish most about weddings is how, by the end of the day, I feel like a part of your family. Saying my goodbyes is as tough as leaving my own family functions - it takes forever, and there's usually a lot of laughter involved. So, whether you're planning a lavish celebration or an intimate gathering, I'm here to ensure your love story is beautifully documented and your day is filled with joy and unforgettable memories. Let's make magic together!
am so excited you're here. I've been capturing love stories as a wedding photographer for nearly two decades. Yes, it may sound surprising, but I don't look my age at all - good genes and living a life with purpose is my secret!
Hi, I'm Krysta Lee
In 2018, I made a life-altering decision to leave my nearly decade-long government career, which had me working 5 days a week in a 4 x 4 cubicle. At the same time, I was juggling wedding photography gigs and performing in a professional cover band – talk about a busy life! Eventually, I hit a wall and decided to take a six-month leave from work to do some deep soul-searching. Therapy and self-reflection led me to the undeniable truth that photography is my true passion.
So, I took the plunge, handed in my resignation, and left the stability of my government job, relying on the modest pension I had accumulated. I've always been a go-getter, and I knew that if I channeled my energy into what I loved, success would follow. And it did! In less than a year, I tripled my bookings, gained over 10,000 followers on Instagram, and built a business that I'm incredibly proud of.
Today, I'm living my dream, doing what I absolutely adore every day – capturing love stories and creating memories that will last a lifetime. I can't wait to be a part of your special day and create beautiful memories that you'll cherish forever. Let's make magic together!
My background story
love telling the story of how I became a full time professional wedding photographer because honestly, it's where I feel I truly stepped into my purpose.
A Look into my

Getting these doodles to sit still for a family photo is about as easy as it sounds. While I sometimes feel ridiculous that as a photographer this is literally our best family photo, I love my hubby and these dorks with every inch of my being. They fill my day with more joy than I can comprehend and whoever said dogs are like our kids was 10000% right. Specifically it's like what I imagine having a toddler is like.

I'm all about the magic of photography and the thrill of adventure. A travel junkie with a passion for exploring the world, I've been fortunate enough to capture beautiful weddings in breathtaking locations like Saint Martin, Mexico, and Jamaica. My wanderlust has taken me to incredible destinations like the Dominican Republic, Italy, Prague, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Greece. I've even had the chance to snap photos of rockstars on a cruise ship in the Bahamas! I've enjoyed hiking trails in the lush rainforests of British Columbia, and taking bridal photos against the backdrop of an EPIC glacier waterfall in Iceland. For me, travel is more than just a hobby; it's a part of my soul. I can't wait to capture the moments that matter most for you on your own incredible journey!

Krysta is Amazing! I'm writing this review just a week and a half after my wedding - and without having all my photos back, and can say that Krysta and her team are amazing! Her energy and support throughout the day was just incredible and we LOVE the sneak peek photos that we received. Everyone had nothing but great things to say about her and she truly provides great insight to wedding day timeline building. All of the information she provides ahead of the wedding really helps with the planning process. Our family is quite large, and family photos were so efficient and everything went so smoothly, with thanks to Krysta and her team. Thanks again Krysta! - Kerry + Chris
A truly unforgettable way to capture those special memories If you are looking for a wedding photographer with creativity, a keen eye and the ability to capture those “special moments”, all while making sure you are comfortable, natural and having a great time, then look no further than Loverly Weddings. Krysta and Kira are the perfect team as they are able to capture those moments that you know that you want to keep forever. We worked with them for our engagement photo session as well as during our wedding day, including “getting ready”, first look, ceremony and reception. Though these sessions were a year apart, both experiences were truly fantastic as we were able to simply be ourselves and feel all of the different emotions throughout those days. We also have to mention that we could not stop smiling, laughing and joking around with them, which helped us to feel even more comfortable and confident with them. We are still amazed at the quality and beauty of our photo albums and we continue to receive many compliments from our family and friends. We highly recommend working with Krysta and Kira for your wedding. – Karina & Jeremy
Krysta and her team were an absolute dream to work with for our wedding. If you want gorgeous photos and real photographers that know what they are doing, HIRE THEM! She made me feel so comfortable as the bride and they integrated fun and fresh ideas for photos into our day. They also helped us get all the photos we needed in a quick turnaround so we got to spend most of the time with our large group of guests. Krysta also turned around a sneak peak of our day in no time, and we LOVE her photos. Work with the Loverly team. You won't regret it. And make sure Kyra is there too so she can teach you how to "vibe"! - Amy + Scott
Great Wedding Photography! Krysta and her team were great from our engagement shoot, to our wedding day. Communication was always quick, and her calendar was very open. She checked in often and made communication easy through surveys and calls. On the day of, she made our whole party feel natural while taking pictures. We really liked our sneak peak photos, as well as our engagement photos. Excited to see the rest of the pictures from the day as I know they will be great! -Heather + Nick
The wedding photography dream team! I don't even know where to begin in describing how wonderful Krysta is to work with! She is the definition of talent and professionalism when it comes to wedding photography. She is truly an expert in her field, and it clearly shows in her work. She knew exactly which shots to get to make our day memorable, yet was very willing to work with us to make sure everything we had envisioned was brought to life. She is so kind and thoughtful, and we instantly knew she was the one to capture the special moments of our day as soon as we talked to her. Her light and airy photos are timeless, and they are memories we will be able to cherish forever. -Julia + Eric
Breathtaking Vineyard Photos! Krysta was amazing at capturing our wedding. She was so easy to work with. She is super organized and she was able to get amazing pictures in a reasonable amount of time. Her work is stunning. I would highly recommend her as a photographer for anyone getting married! -Laura + Shane
Made us feel like supermodels! Krysta is AmAZING !! I am so glad I went with her as my photographer for my wedding and engagement pictures. She made me and most importantly my shy husband feel so comfortable. The pictures turned out amazing and we can’t be more happy with them! Olivia + Kyle
Fun & Easy! Krysta, made taking photos fun, quick and easy. She knew we wanted to be more present with our wedding and she made that happen. She has an energy that makes you want to take photos and keeps you going. The photos came out amazing. From the portraits to the candid moments each photo I'm in love with. -Wylie + Christopher
Best choice I ever made!! I could go on and on raving about Krysta!! Right from the start, Krysta was responsive, helpful, and professional. The quality of her work speaks for itself - both our engagement photos and our wedding photos are better than I ever could have hoped for. They truly capture the essence of us, which is all we ever wanted. I get so many compliments on how stunning the photos are!! It's also so important that you vibe with your photographer, and I promise you will LOVE working with her. She is so genuine, upbeat and encouraging. Me and my husband have always been more awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera, but Krysta made it a fun and relaxing experience. On our wedding day, my husband kept telling me me how easy Krysta made it! I am still over the moon happy looking at our photos, I am so grateful I went with Loverly. Without a question, it will be a choice you will not regret. Vanessa + Fraser
Krysta is the consummate professional. She is fun, outgoing genuine and an excellent photographer. She was able to handle 4 children under the age of 13 to get them photographed quickly and captured the spirit of love.
She even took a course on photographing same sex weddings after we booked her so that she would be up on the latest terminology and protocols. I would highly recommend her for any wedding(event but especially for same sex events. She is knowledgable and made everyone feel safe and engaged doing our various groupings. Cathy + Dale
Best photographer ever! Krysta and Kira did such an incredible job with our wedding photography! Not only did they manage to keep us on track and on time with a long list of family photographs, but they captured every special moment throughout the day! They also stayed super flexible with last-minute changes. When we had to move our bridal photoshoot from a park to our condo building due to rain, they used every beautiful architectural feature of the condo lobby, elevators, mirrored walls, and courtyard to give us such a unique photoshoot with fun poses! Krysta even went out of her way to create an amazing bridal party transition insta-reel! Best of all, they were so bubbly and upbeat, always smiling and open to ideas for great photo opportunities! Even our family and friends were impressed by how fun, professional, and focused our photographers were! Overall, our pictures turned out gorgeous and look like they could be in a bridal magazine. They even gave us a sneak peek video montage of our pictures set to our first-dance song, just a few days after our wedding! Capturing our wedding memories on film meant a lot to us. Alex + Krystal
