Incredible photographer with the BEST attitude!
Crissy and her assistant Lisa were INCREDIBLE! We received the 800+ photos back from our wedding, tried to narrow it down to ‘just’ the ones we absolutely loved, and still had over 300+ photos in our favorites album!
Crissy has actually been our wedding photographer for three years. You see, we initially booked way back in 2019 for a 2020 wedding, which was postponed multiple times due to lockdown. We knew rescheduling would be a hassle but we were determined to find a date that specifically worked for Crissy because of the amazing experience that we had during our engagement shoot.
I’d like to share a few points that really made Crissy and Lisa stand out to us:
* Incredible flexibility and organization. We had postponed 2 years, but Crissy was so willing to work with us as we rescheduled 3 times to find a date when we could safely celebrate. She had all of our original paperwork years later, and when the 2022 date drew close, we were able to resume conversations as no time had passed.
* Such a FUN and easygoing attitude! My husband and I are complete goofballs, who did not make it easy for Crissy & team to pose us in romantic ways. We were constantly giggling, but Crissy found a way to highlight the glee and quirkiness in a way that still captured the love in our hearts and eyes.
* If you are awkward taking pictures, then Lisa and Crissy are completely the right pair for you. Lisa realized very quickly that I just do not know what to do with my hands and gave me very specific instructions on where to place them. It was such a relief to have that extra bit of instruction done in a way that was still playful and never patronizing.
* We had a lot of last-minute changes with family photos, and Crissy was easily able to revise on the fly.
* GREAT WITH DOGS! Of course, our pup had to be included in some of our photos, and Crissy (a dog lover herself!) was able (at our request) to make our pup a centerpiece of our engagement photos.
* Crissy and Lisa felt like part of the bridal party. We laughed with them the entire time and just had a complete blast. They put us at ease, and in doing so were able to capture genuine smiles.
* The pictures are gorgeous. We are struggling to narrow it down to just a few to send to family and friends. We loved so many photos that we specifically bought a digital frame to display them all alongside some printed ones.
We chose Crissy based on a fabulous recommendation from a friend, and I will be passing that same recommendation on to anyone else I know getting married. Crissy is fabulous, able to handle even the most quirky families & friends, and captures the moments where you were having too much fun to even realize pictures were happening.

I could not have picked a better photography team to work at our wedding and our engagement shoot. Crissy is a incredible person to work with and she will get the best shots possible for her couples. Lisa is her perfect counterpart and makes you laugh and feel relaxed. The two of them are not only amazing photographers they are also awesome people. I keep getting compliments on all of my wedding photos and I know a huge part of that is all thanks to them. Thank you for making us feel so relaxed in front of the camera and making us feel special. You guys truly are amazing and I will miss corresponding with you. If I have any photography needs in the future you guys will be the first people I call. Thank you so much again!

I can't recommend Bayless Photography highly enough! They gave us an incredible deal- from a free engagement shoot and photo booth at the reception to getting digital copies of thousands of photos included, we got SO MUCH for our money. More importantly, Crissy and her assistant Lisa did a phenomenal job with our engagement and wedding photos- they were awesome with the kids (and our dog at the engagement shoot) and made sure to take every single picture I wanted. They were out in the scorching heat photographing for hours and never once complained or tried to rush us. They are true professionals with top of the line equipment and must have spent hours photoshopping out parked cars/ traffic cones in the background of some of our group shots just so we could take pictures in the shade. They also got us a sneak peak of our wedding photos within a few days and literally thousands of edited photos within a weak and a half. I would absolutely recommend without reservation.
Sarah & Damien married on 6/29/18
We had a great time with Crissy! It was a beautiful day and the pictures captured it all. They were very professional yet kept everyone laughing and at ease. I wouldn't have had it any other way and wish we could go back and do it all over again. Thanks for the memories!
Janessa & Andrew married on 9/7/17
Crissy and her team (Jay and Kim) are so great to work with! On our wedding day, it was rainy and cold and all I thought was "I'm not going to get the pictures that I imagined (we chose a mountain location for the beautiful landscape), what am I going to do?" Here comes Jay to the rescue! We were confined to a little rustic barn, but Jay and Kim made the most of it! While it is definitely not how I pictured my wedding, Jay and Kim were able to capture the magic of our day and the pictures turned out great. I would highly recommend Bayless Photography!
Jessica married 10/27/17
We LOVED having Crissy as our photographer! For two people who do not like getting their photos taken, Crissy made the entire experience easy, fun, and enjoyable! Working with Crissy was not just a wonderful experience, she also produced the most beautiful photographs, capturing all the special moments that could have easily gone missed. Crissy designed out wedding album that we will cherish forever. Can't thank Crissy enough!
Bridget & Liam
Crissy and Sarah were absolute perfection on my wedding day! They could see from the first few pictures that I didn't love being the center of attention, but somehow I managed to stay calm and collected for the entire day because they created such an atmosphere of fun, love and happiness. I was so grateful that they were there to capture those moments. Crissy was extremely communicative after the wedding and I received all of my beautiful photos within just a few short weeks. I highly recommend Bayless Photography for your wedding (or any event)!
Danielle & Andres
One of the most important things about my wedding day were the photos to remember the event forever. Bayless did an amazing job! They were so professional and sent me all of my photos from the wedding and rehearsal so quickly. Bayless has a great questionnaire to fill out to help pick out the photos you want for your big day and makes everything so easy and simple. I loved all of my photos so much and my family did as well. Looking at them helps relive how wonderful the day was!
Sarah & Patrick
I loved working with Bayless! They were always willing to answer my questions, and the photos are amazing! We had such hard time picking our favorites :)
Devon & Nathan
The photographers were great very friendly and they took amazing photos I'm so happy I had them to capture my big day
Melissa & Ian
I wish I could give Bayless more than 5 stars. Since the moment I met Jay and Kim, I knew that our wedding would be remembered beautifully by the photos they captured. It was awesome having two photographers, one for close ups and one for wide angle shots and they captured all of our special moments and emotions of our wedding day. Jay and Kim were very friendly and fun and I couldn’t have wanted anything better. My husband and I were blown away by our wedding photos and we continue to receive tons of compliments on our pictures and how amazing they turned out! The owner Crissy was very easy to communicate with and kept us updated on the editing process of our photos. We were amazed by how many photographs they took and we received a USB drive with all our photos. My husband and I will highly recommend Bayless Photography for your wedding or special event.
Kim & James
Bayless Photography did both my engagement photos and my wedding day photos, and I would highly recommend them!! Jay was so pleasant to work with, and everything was captured so beautifully! I can't wait to work with them for any future events.
Crissy was the best choice for us!! She was able to capture the best moments, she understands her subjects, has fun with them and is so easy to work with! We have too many great shots, we can't decide! We enjoyed having Crissy and Lisa for the afternoon. So thankful I called and stuck to my instincts , Thanks Crissy and Lisa❌⭕️
I loved working with Bayless! They were always willing to answer my questions, and the photos are amazing! We had such hard time picking our favorites :)

Danielle married on 9/12/17
Crissy is a wonderful photographer who anticipates the needs of the bride and groom and does everything she can to ensure things run smoothly--without drama--on the wedding day. I cannot imagine having anyone else shoot my wedding.
In addition to her professionalism, attentiveness and great eye, Crissy is also a really nice person. She clicked with us immediately and blended well with the rest of our guests at the wedding. Everyone wanted to have their photos taken by Crissy and as a result, she got some really awesome shots. We were so happy with our final photos that we have hired Crissy to shoot other events for us.
I highly recommend Crissy!
Bayless did an amazing job at my wedding and reception. One of the most important things for my wedding was the photos I could get from it to remember forever after. The photos they took were breathtaking and more than I could ask for. They have an easy questionnaire to fill out and great suggestions for all photos you will want and need. Jay was very professional and I got over 800 photos! The only thing I can complain about is I don’t know which ones I want to print out since I love so many
Sarah & Patrick
We came across Bayless Photography through our wedding venue in Rehoboth, MA. From the first time I spoke with Crissy I knew she was the perfect fit for us! Crissy was very accommodating with our schedules when it came time for meetings and she was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Crissy was very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. When it came time for the wedding day she was not only on time but early with her other photographer. She took the information we had given her for a "vision" for pictures and she incorporated everything we could imagine and hope for. We received our sneak peak about a week after the wedding and it definitely left us wanting more. We were over the moon with how great they came out. We got the rest of our pictures back about a month later. We were very happy with how they came out. She captured all the moments we could imagine. She is knowledgeable, professional, friendly and just overall a great person to have around, especially during such a stressful time. We are soooooo happy with the service and quality of our wedding photos. We would recommend anyone and everyone we know to use Bayless Photography and will be hiring them again for future needs (family photos, etc.) Thank you Crissy for your hand in making our day amazing!!!
I had a lot of trouble finding a good photographer for our wedding due to responsiveness and a cancellation. I should have just booked Bayless Photography from day one. Crissy was extremely professional, responsive, prepared, helpful and a talented photographer. She makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. Crissy and Jay were awesome on our wedding day and worked with any requests we had for timing and photos. I was concerned about missing a lot of time to enjoy the wedding for the photos and Crissy worked with us to get all the shots in in a timely manner and we had fun! I LOVED our photos and they came within a few weeks of our wedding which was great. Crissy even follows-up to make sure everything is to your liking. No need to look anywhere else, Bayless Photography is perfect.
Vicki & EJ
Crissy was a fantastic photographer! We got married on October 1st, right in the heart of wedding season, but Crissy never made us feel rushed or like we didn't have her full attention. She was also incredibly sweet and fun to work with on our wedding day. She gave us a sheet to fill out several weeks before the wedding, and she used that on the day of to guide the formal pictures that we wanted, which made it so easy to get them done! She and her partner also got wonderful candid shots, which were so much fun to see! I had a few shots of some family heirlooms that I wanted taken, and those turned out beautifully as well. What impressed me the most was that she had not photographed at our venue before, and she actually took a trip to the venue on her own time and met with the in-house coordinator and took a tour, so she a sense of the layout and what would and wouldn't work for the pictures. We had our full pictures (over 600!) back in less than 6 weeks, which for the busy time of year was not bad at all! I could not recommend her enough!
My daughter was married on May 28, 2016 and we had Crissy and Jay photograph the event. Starting at our house, Crissy took pictures of the girls getting ready and sitting outside around the pool Even our dogs made it into some pictures. Jay started at the venue while the groom and groomsmen were getting ready. It was hot and humid that day and we wanted a lot of outdoor shots. They did an unbelievable job! We have so many great pictures in digital format that we will cherish for years to come! I highly recommend Bayless Photography for your wedding or any event!
My only advice is to just do it! Crissy and Jay were an absolute pleasure to work with, and I couldn't be happier with my photos! They are SO beautiful and masterfully shot. Do not hesitate to work with them - not even for a second!
Bayless Photography was the best choice for our wedding. Our photographers were amazing! We had so much fun taking our wedding photos and our guests loved them too! We had multiple people come up and tell us how awesome and kind they were!! HIGHLY recommend Bayless Photography!! Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect!
"Bayless photography was anything I could have asked for and more! Crissy was so fast to communicate with any questions- no matter what time I sent an email, I heard back within an hour. Jay photographed my wedding and heard exactly what I wanted and executed with ease. He put my husband, who hates taking pictures, at ease. He was great with our whole bridal party and family. Our posed pictures and ceremony pictures are near perfection and the pictures from the reception were spot on to what we were wanting (more action shots there). Getting the pictures was a better experience than any friend or family member has had with their wedding pictures and I highly recommend. "
We are so glad that we used Bayless Photography for our wedding! Not only are our photos beautiful and capture the emotions of the day, but Crissy was a huge help to us throughout the entire wedding-planning process. From our very first meeting with her, we knew that we would be in excellent hands - she was always ready with suggestions when we needed them (even when it wasn't about photography) and was very responsive to all of our questions. Crissy also took our engagement photos (which are all amazing) and made them an enjoyable experience, even with our rambunctious dog and my now-husband who hates being photographed! On our wedding day, Crissy and Jay were efficient, thorough, and upbeat. We cannot more highly recommend them!
Crissy Bayless Photography is AWESOME. I knew I had chosen a good photographer when after three months, my wife said "Oh My Gosh, they got that shot!!! its sooo beautiful", and spent the next 20 minutes lost in the photos all over again. --- Crissys' team is so easy to work with and captures breath taking shots. We have received so many compliments. Here is one from one of my family members--- ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh those pictures are beautifull! omg i am crying. I have a few pics I just looooooveee like the one when yall were dancing and she was looking into your eyes. I mean they really captured the moment and the one where y'all were reading your notes you wrote to each other because yall couldn't see each other. if only everyone can see what they said. That was cute. I can go on and on I felt every emotion from the wedding n those pictures. Now i'm going to look at the reception pics.--- Thanks Crissy and Jay for making our day beautiful memorable for years to come.
Jason and Tiffany Alexander
Crissy makes you feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and makes the whole experience relaxing thus capturing magical pictures!!!! Both my engagement session and wedding day were carefree because I knew Crissy had everything handled :)
Crissy and Jay were an amazing team! They work very well together, making everyone having their picture taken feeling instantly at ease. They were open to our suggestions for pictures. The whole picture-taking experience flew by - they were very efficient while also being extremely thorough. During the ceremony, they were able to capture angles and shots without ever being in the way or otherwise noticed by the bride and groom or the guests. After the wedding, we received our pictures very quickly - within 2 weeks, which was great! The photos they captured were absolutely beautiful, and they captured the feel of the whole day on film. Everyone has said how beautiful our wedding pictures are! They both have truly wonderful personalities that make them such a pleasure to work with!
Nicole & Eric
Crissy did an amazing job with our photographs for our wedding. They were gorgeous--everyone who sees them agrees--and she was so easy and wonderful to work with. Her services were also a great deal compared to others that I talked to at the time; her prices were very reasonable for my budget, and the quality was just as good if not much better than what I could have gotten from another vendor. And, we got to keep the rights to use the pictures however we wanted! I have often said of my wedding planning that my photographer was the best decision I made. The next year, my best friend used Bayless for her wedding, too.
"BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS IN ATLANTA!" 1/27/15
Excellent, excellent service from start to finish. Crissy is so awesome and personable. Super easy to talk to and so fairly priced. We met beforehand for her to get a feel for what I wanted. Her and Jay did our engagement session as well, and I wouldn’t have had anyone else!! Every single photo I wanted she had on a list already, and the few extras I wanted, I sent her examples of each. Somehow throughout the busy day of the wedding, she captured them all. The quality of the photos was fabulous, not to mention the sense of urgency she works with!! We got married on 12.13.14, and had our photos online by Christmas Eve (you do the math – SO FAST!), and the CD by 12.27.14. I would recommend Bayless Photography to anyone (and request Crissy and Jay – such an amazing team)!
Incredible photographer!! Pictures were amazing and I didnt have to wait months to get them, she was very quick and the quality of her work was amazing. Even my groom kept saying that he was glad we picked them because they were so much fun! Very glad I picked this photographer for my special day!!
Crissy is a treasure! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and she's incredibly easy to be around. She handled the engagement photos, wedding and reception for our daughter. We were blown away by the photos- quality and quantity! Our daughter and son-in-law loved their wedding. Our families and friends complemented the event long after it was over. The vendors who impressed us the most were were Bayless Photography and DJ Tod. These were also the ones that our guests complemented the most.
"Hands Down the Best" posted 10/22/14
Crissy is one of the best professionals you will ever encounter. We worked together on a beautiful, high end wedding in Boston, MA this past summer and she was incredible on both her dealings with people and her photographic skills.
She was creative, energetic and went out of her way several times to make absolutely sure the couple had all the pictures they had envisioned and no moment was left unrecorded!
I would recommend her services to any couple looking for a fun professional that has the gift to capture the magic of their special day in their pictures!
Wow! Those were all so amazing! I just went through them all like 10 times. They came out perfect. Thank you so much for being able to capture the Pinterest photos I requested... they are exactly what I wanted!! You both did such an awesome job with the variety of angles, poses, backgrounds. I love them all!
Thank you so much!!

Crissy and Jay were amazing to work with from the engagement session through the reception! We absolutely love the way they captured our personalities and the entire mood of the evening! I will definitely use Bayless for any photo needs in the future and I highly recommend them to any bride, but you need to book them early!

Perfection x two:) posted 7/16/2013
Bayless photography photographed the wedding of my older daughter in 2011 and most recently, my youngest daughter just two weeks ago, July of 2013. The weddings were very different. One took place in the middle of downtown Atlanta, the other was on the Chattahoochee. Crissy and Jay worked so hard. They were out early to scout shooting sites and requested input from the bride to make sure they are getting the shots she is looking for. One thing I love is that they really captured the true feeling of each wedding. Pictures of each wedding are unique and different and a true reflection of the bride and groom. My daughters look stunning in the pictures, but they look like themselves. The posing is natural and easy....not like some of the "album cover" shots I see in so many weddings today. My youngest daughter's wedding took place on a rainy weekend. Crissy assured all of us that rain or shine, they would get the pictures we wanted.....and they did. The pictures are stunning. They really used the rainy day to their advantage. We had sneak peek shots back to us by the next day, and the remaining shots were edited and back to us before the kids got home from their honeymoon. I can not tell you how pleased I am with Bayless Photography. Crissy and Jay love what they do and it is reflected in the product. They are simply the best!!!
Perfect! posted 7/16/2013
Crissy and Jay photographed our 2011 wedding...as well as my sister in law's 2011 wedding, two friends' 2012 weddings, and my sister's 2013 wedding. Obviously, we love Bayless photography so much, we've recommended them to everyone we know! Crissy does her homework. She scouts locations ahead of time, and she stays in touch to make sure that everyone--bride, groom, and parents--are on the same page. Our pictures were just amazing. They really captured the emotions of our wedding day. Crissy had our pictures back to us within two weeks of our wedding day! Both Crissy and Jay have been absolutely wonderful to work with. They are professional and get their job done well, but they have great personalities and are so much fun to be around. They made everyone--bride, groom, wedding party and family--feel so comfortable, which I believe is what made our pictures so great. I can't recommend Bayless Photography enough!
July 2, 2013
Crissy is an amazing, amazing photographer! She is friendly, accommodating, and willing to go the extra mile to make her customers happy. Crissy took my engagement photos, family photos, and wedding photos. I had so many photos to choose from, I could not have been more pleased with her work. I will be using her for future family pictures!!

Crissy & Jay are AMAZING!! I am the type of gal who hates having my picture taken...I always dislike the way I look! Crissy did our engagement shoot and the pictures speak for themselves!! For the first time in my life I looked Beautiful in pictures. Aside from gorgeous photographs Crissy also made us feel very comfortable and at ease. We loved every single one of the pictures she took and couldn't decide on favorites...we bought them ALL! We were so thrilled to have found Bayless Photography and could not wait for her to photograph our wedding. She did not disappoint!! We had an additional photographer Jay, and he was so artistic...great photography style! They were so professional and I was so impressed how quickly they got all the shots. They were so stealthy at our reception that I didn't even see them, but they got pictures of everything. Once again we received our pictures and could not decide on favorites and bought them all. I will continue to use Crissy and Jay for all my life events. Thank you so much for being a part of our PERFECT wedding!
Ahhhhhmazing!!! posted 5/28/2013
Crissy and her assistant were awesome! We did our engagement photos with Crissy early and she was great. Real down to earth and just let us have fun with it. I got the wedding photos two weeks after the wedding which I was pleasantly surprised about! The pictures were beautiful! Really unique and they caught alot of really good candid moments! I was really impressed! I'm so happy we used Bayless Photography, Inc. and would recommend them to ANYONE!

Oh my gosh! I cannot put into words of how very special Crissy and Jay are. The pictures are beautiful that was taken for my daughters wedding, Kelly and Richie Meeder. They were so sweet,caring,funny,and very professional. I will most definitely recommend them to everyone. The pictures online goes perfect with the music,which makes me cry every time I have viewed them.You are the best in what you do. You truly captured everything for the wedding and more! Thank you so much for the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen!
January 22, 2013
I love Crissy & Jay, what can I say?! Our photos are gorgeous, I wish I could show you. We really, really, reeeeeally hate having our pictures taken, we are an older, larger, couple, and they are gorgeous. Crissy made room for us in her schedule to get to know us and on the day melted into the background except for the "have to have" posed pictures. The up-close work was exquisite and all the meaningful details we wanted are captured beautifully. Also the impromptu ones that capture emotion and laughter are a treasure. Crissy's prices fit with our attempt at cost control (let that go girls, it gets bigger than you planned fast!) and made it possible for us to have every moment. Thank you so much!!

I can not thank u enough. The pictures are AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! Thank u for bringing my wedding to life again through film. Your assistant was also WONDERFUL. Wishing I could hug u. I will most definitely be telling everyone I know about u, ur professionalism, and your incredible work!
Thank u again for your incomparable work.

I LOVE BAYLESS PHOTOGRAPHY!!
Crissy Bayless & Jay Minor photographed our wedding. They traveled to West Virginia for the wedding weekend. They were able to get all of the photos we wanted with our large families and bridal parties -- even with the crazy Super Storm Sandy weather constraints. I HATE photos -- but Crissy and Jay made my groom and I feel incredibly comfortable. They got to know my bridal party and family. We did a full bridal package with engagement session and ALL day (and rehearsal dinner) package, but Bayless photography's prices were competitive and I have to say -- WORTH IT!! They do a fabulous job and I would recommend them to everyone I know!
October 22, 2012
Crissy, I am so happy that you and Jay were with us on Saturday. Thank you for capturing our day so perfectly.
Words cannot express how we feel about you and your work. We clicked from the first time we met and that continues today. Thank you for your professionalism, your spirit, your personality, your smile, your incredible ability and talent, and your caring. I told Fred as we left the engagement photo shoot at the Carter Center that you were the best photographer for us, that my initial feelings about you were verified by that shoot, and that you likely were the single best investment we made for our wedding. And that was before we saw the engagement pictures!

October 21, 2012
Omg, I went from crying to laughing throughout looking at the pics!! I am speechless, words can't express how great you both are, if I was in charge of giving awards you would get #1!!!!!!!
We love you

First, the day we came back from our honeymoon...our pictures were ready! A week and a half for 900 photos? It was amazing. And they came out better than I would imagine. Crissy and Sarah were great on our wedding day, taking all the pictures we requested and then some. I love that they included pictures in our album that were goofy and really captured our personality!

The minute I got engaged Crissy was HIGHLY recommended to us from a friend. My friend said Crissy was by far the best vendor she used for her wedding and she continues to use her for family photos. We researched and decided to go with Crissy. From the moment we met her at our engagement shoot until the present (as we are picking pictures for our albums) she has been so flexible, easy to work with, and very friendly. Our engagement and wedding pictures were exactly what we wanted! I would highly recommend Crissy to anybody for any occassion!

"I can't even begin to express how pleased we were with Bayless Photography! Crissy was such a joy to work with. She was willing to create a package that was perfect for us. She was so easy to get in touch with, and she always responded quickly. She was always professional with us, and we were lucky enough to become friends along the way! She listened to what pictures we wanted (and didn't want!) on our wedding day, and she made she we got them. She helped everything run so smoothly on the day of our wedding. Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous; we love them! I have recommended Crissy to family and friends, and I couldn't be happier with Bayless Photography's services. "

Crissy is an amazing photographer and asset to your wedding “team”! She took advantage of our engagement photo session both to get to know us as a couple and take wonderful photographs!
Then, as we planned for the wedding, she was in contact and offered suggestions and pointers for the big day. On the day of our wedding, Crissy and her team made us feel at ease as we took the planned group pictures and faded into the background to memorialize our special day!
I would recommend Bayless Photography to anyone who is looking for reliability, good communication and a personalized relationship because working with Crissy and her team makes special events even more extraordinary!

Bayless Photography was phenomenal! I've heard of friends who were so disappointed in their wedding pictures, and it's something you can’t re-do, but you can count on Crissy!
She was so professional and easy to work with, and most importantly our pictures turned out fabulously!!! The turnaround was so quick, and she had a great variety of packages/prices to choose from. I would definitely recommend Crissy for your wedding or any special occasion!

Bayless Photography was amazing! I tried another vendor first and didn't like the outcome, at all.. Then I did a session with Crissy and all of the photos were AWESOME. We both felt so comfortable working with her that it was easy to take AMAZING photos, even though I usually don't photograph well, these turned out PERFECT.
So I had high expectations for my wedding, and when we received the photos back (well over a thousand) just 2 weeks after our wedding, not only was I HIGHLY IMPRESSED with the quick turnaround, but also the professional editing. And the photos were SPECTACULAR. I love so many of them!
The wedding photography package is very reasonably priced, and the quality is unbeatable. We are SO HAPPY with every experience we've had with Bayless Photography. They are professional and reliable, and probably the most important to me: really fun and easy to work with. I was glad to have Bayless Photography at my wedding, they took away my stress about getting the perfect pictures because I knew they would do a great job and I felt so comfortable with them around.
Stop looking, you found your photographer!
Shelley and Ashton Williams
Crissy & Sarah,
Thank you so much for the gift of the lovely pictures you took of our wedding day. They are absolutely perfect. Exactly what I wanted and hoped for. You two were so nice and easy going. A pleasure to have around. You just fit right in with us! We are so grateful. Thank you again so much

The moment I discovered the "Trash the Dress" shoot I approached Crissy about doing it. She was my wedding photographer, so I knew she would do a fantastic job. And man I was right! She took the time to go find the perfect waterfall for our photo shoot. The minute we got there for the shoot I was at ease because I knew Crissy and her other photographer Sarah had put a lot of thought into the shoot and that my pictures would be amazing! I had so much fun getting in the water with my dress, felt so relaxed, and so pretty. I knew that I was in capable hands and I felt so beautiful sitting there in the water. Crissy and Sarah knew exactly how they wanted me to pose. I had the best time! I got the pictures a few days later and they are so fantastic! I am proud to show them off to everyone. I will always recommend Crissy Bayless to anyone who needs a photographer.
Thank you so much!!
Crissy was the one and only photographer that I talked to when I got engaged. I instantly loved her work, her prices, and her. She was always prompt in responding to my emails and many questions. When she took our engagement photos she was very flexible with the location and the amount of time she spent taking them.
She quickly got these pictures back to us. When I had trouble with the DVD, she immediately sent me another. When it came time for the wedding day, she and her assistant were amazing. I, of course, wasn't’t ready when they got there, so they immediately started taking pictures of other things. They moved on to taking pictures of the guys and then when I was ready, taking pictures of me. She always reassured me that it was okay and that we had plenty of time to get these pictures taken.
The wedding pictures were waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon. I fell in love with every single picture (yes, all 678 of them). Anytime you are around her, you always feel like you are around an old friend and feel comfortable with her taking the photos. Anytime I need professional pictures, I will always go back to Bayless Photography. I will also recommend them to anyone else looking for a photographer.

Crissy words cannot express our gratitude for your services, as well as Sarahs, throughout our wedding day. We were already so impressed with Bayless Photography's professionalism and attention to detail from my cousin's wedding. I served as a bridesmaid, and Tom was my date, for her wedding and as such we were able to witness how easy and fun you made taking the bridal party pictures prior to the wedding and post ceremony. Due to this pleasant experience we knew once we became engaged we wanted your services for our wedding!
Needless to say, you and Sarah were lovely to work with again! My family, once again, as well our friends and Tom's family were so impressed with Bayless Photography and had nothing but praise to say. Your ability to
encapsulate the mood of our ceremony and reception through photos is invaluable. We cannot thank you enough for capturing so many precious moments throughout our wedding and reception. In addition, the speed in
which you provided the pictures for review further exemplifies Bayless Photography's professionalism. We are eagerly awaiting the proof book and then our album!

Bayless Photography photographed my engagement session and wedding. What I liked most about working with Crissy was her responsiveness! She was quick to respond to my countless emails and questions leading up to the big day.
She was also easy to work with. I was also impressed with the fast turn-around of both my engagement and wedding photos on her online gallery. Ordering prints was also easy and the prints looked great! At the wedding she handed out cards she had made that had a picture of myself and husband that included the web address of our online gallery for our guests to access pictures after the wedding, cute!
Overall, the pictures turned out really well for our engagement session and wedding. Crissy provided the pictures in both color and black and white so we had a variety of pictures to choose from. I would definitely recommend Bayless Photography for engagements and weddings!

Crissy Bayless was a absolute godsend to my husband and I. After speaking to at least 5 photographers, I spoke with her, and my mind was immediately put at ease. Just speaking with her made me so excited about what was to come. Crissy and her staff were absolutely wonderful with ensuring that every picture that I asked for was taken. Looking at my beautiful pictures allows me to relive our wedding day over and over from start to finish. I can't thank Crissy enough for all of her hard work and dedication.

When we met Crissy, we knew she would be great. She was very professional, but down to earth and genuine at the same time – we felt like we were meeting with an old friend. Crissy patiently answered all our questions in detail and brought several examples of her work to show us. I was very particular about what I wanted and how I wanted it and Crissy was very honest and addressed all of our concerns. Leading up to the wedding Crissy was great about keeping in touch, even when she was traveling for other photo jobs. She really put our minds at ease and helped keep us calm leading up to the big day – we knew what to expect. On the big day Crissy and her partner arrived on time and went right to work. They were both so friendly and just seemed to fit right into the picture. They did a great job with coordinating different groups for different photos and they made wonderful suggestions along the way for poses. I can’t say enough how relieving it was to not have to worry about the photographers and what they were doing. They had a checklist of all our ‘must-have’ photos and just made it happen. It was really nice that they also just sort of blended into the scene and didn’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Everything became a blur once the ceremony started and I didn’t notice them again until we took photos afterwards. Then it was a blur again and I saw them again at the end of the night when they checked in to get any final shots before they left. I was so satisfied with their performance – I feel that we were very fortunate to have connected so well with Crissy and it made all the difference. Well, that is simply the beginning! Crissy was prompt in going through our photos and creating a couple of copies with various ‘photography magic’ and got the photo website and proofs out to us quickly. My husband and I were absolutely floored when we went through the 660+ photos! They managed to capture so many exquisite details and moments that we missed! And all the perfect little memories they captured for us – it actually still makes me tear.
It is difficult to put a price tag on what Crissy gave to us in putting our special memories into a tangible, visual masterpiece. When we finally managed to narrow down the photos we wanted to use in our album, again Crissy was prompt in working on a draft for our approval. And again, we were absolutely blown away! The album was so well organized and really conveyed the exact feel of our special day. She even managed to squeeze in many of the additional photos we did not think would make it in the album. The album was creative, classic and quite perfect. I have heard so many horror stories and I am so thankful that our story had a happy ending (or beginning!). We have started talking about having a family and will definitely be calling Crissy to find out if she’ll do baby photos! Thanks so much for capturing our dream day!

Decker/Macrenaris Wedding, May 2008
There are many ways to cut costs while planning a wedding; photography is NOT an area you should go with the lowest bidder! I found Crissy through an online search of local photographers. We met with her and then immediately cancelled all of our other photographer interviews – we had an instant connection with her personality, passion, and of course examples of her work. We chose to go with the Royal Wedding package, which included an engagement session, ceremony rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, pre-wedding at our hotel, formals before and after the ceremony, and the duration of the reception. Best of all it included all rights to our pictures. We can print them wherever and whenever we want. The whole experience was worth every penny!!!
Crissy is the perfect mix of professionalism and fun and by far the best wedding vendor I dealt with during the stressful time of planning. She was so quick to respond to my many many questions and paid great attention to my special photography requests. She is also very fast with her picture turnaround. We got back from our honeymoon and were looking at our Wedding pictures 3 days later!!! I couldn’t believe it! I will be able to relive every moment of that day for the rest of my life and we owe it all to Crissy. I would recommend her to anyone! We all just loved her and her work!
With Sincere Thanks,
Laura & Jason Macrenaris
My husband and I can’t thank you enough for the AWESOME work that you did with our photos! Both the engagement and wedding pictures were breathtaking!!!
You and your staff made my family and friends feel very comfortable with the sessions and everyone is still talking about your professionalism.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU to future clients and wish you much success in your business!!!
See you soon for our family photos!!
We Love You!

Crissy is an amazing photographer! She, by far, was my favorite vendor to work with during the hectic stress of my wedding! She took the time to capture the precious moments of the day, and I cherish those moments in my memory and in my wedding album! Crissy was very quick to send all of our albums and pictures, and was very responsive to the many questions I had for her. I feel like she went above and beyond her call of duty, and I cannot thank her enough! She is so easy going and really easy to work with! I have and will continue to highly recommend her! I feel like I can honestly call her a friend, because she was there when I needed her! She is amazing!
Thank you SO much, Crissy!!!

I have been working with Crissy for well over a year now. We started with engagement pictures and have continued from there. From beginning to end she has been fantastic! She is always quickly responsive, which is important for busy brides, and extremely accommodating. Most importantly, we love our pictures! Our album in full of those beautiful shots that every bride dreams of.
The day of our wedding Crissy was on point. She is easy going and polite to everyone but also has no trouble wrangling a crowd! She took charge and directed everyone perfectly. Much later, I found out that Crissy actually went back to our church days after the wedding to get improved shots of the building due to the weather. She really went above and beyond to get the perfect shot every time. A true professional- she prides herself on excellent work. Bayless Photography is probably the best decision I made for my wedding... aside from the groom! :)

Crissy Bayless is fabulous! We had first seen her in action at a friend's wedding in March 2006 where I was a bridesmaid. She and her other photographer were so friendly and everywhere taking pictures during the ceremony and reception. We immediately contacted her to ask prices and availability. We were so pleased to find out the reasonable prices for each package. We immediately booked her for our June 9, 2007 wedding. We had booked her way in advance but we knew we had nothing to worry about when it came to details.
Crissy and assistant arrived on time and the minute they walked through the door they were taking pictures. Our family and friends raved about them because they were so friendly and when our family had us posing with them to take a picture they were right there to take the picture too! They took over 500 pictures at our wedding and they were fantastic. They have a wonderful artistic album that is very unique and everyone was amazed with the photos and the album! We have nothing but praise for Crissy and her staff! We are always recommending Bayless Photography to anyone we know that needs a fantastic photographer!
Thanks so much!

Bayless Photography was everything we expected and then some! From the beginning Crissy was helpful in coordinating the photography around the weekend activities (rehearsal, ceremony, reception, etc.). And on the wedding day Crissy was on time, cordial and attentive to all our requests. We just had the feeling all weekend long that Crissy had everything under control and there was nothing to worry about. We were clearly Bayless Photography's number one priority. And most of all, our photos are absolutely beautiful! Crissy captured moments of us that will last forever! We highly recommend Bayless Photography for a wedding or any major event. Trust us you will not be disappointed.

Crissy was a great photographer. She was so easy to work with and always was EASY to get in touch with! My engagement pictures and my wedding pictures are amazing. Friends told me that the photographer would be in your way and be a hassle, but not Crissy.....everyone at my reception loved her and loved posing for the pictures. My wedding album is beautiful and it TOTALLY takes me back to the actual day. I would advise everyone to use her! Thanks for everything Crissy!
July 20, 2006
We knew we liked Crissy from the moment we met. We interviewed 3 photographers for our wedding (knowing nothing about photography ourselves) and Crissy was our first interview. It’s still a mystery why we even went on to the other 2 interviews because we knew we wanted Crissy. Sure enough – we asked her to shoot our wedding (and engagement and bridal portrait sessions). Crissy was amazing all around! Of course, our pictures are fabulous, but working with Crissy was the best! She is professional, quick to respond, pays attention to details, creative, and VERY likable! Not only do we like Crissy, but our entire wedding party and families like her as well. It was invaluable to have a photographer that was so well liked by everyone attend our most special day! Further, we have the most beautiful pictures that captured moments that we will treasure forever.
Believe us brides (and grooms) – if you want to work with the BEST, hire Crissy!
Our sincerest gratitude,

Asking Crissy to photograph our wedding was honestly the easiest decision we had to make in the entire wedding planning process!!! Just by corresponding with her before we set up our meeting to discuss packages, we already knew she would be perfect and when we met with her it was confirmed instantly! She is so friendly, easy to talk to and work with, and we were amazed by her talent after looking at her work! She takes such beautiful pictures and we feel honored that she and Lisa have captured our wedding day for us to remember forever! Working together since the engagement, she has gotten to know us and really know our style and our personalities and brought that to life in our pictures.
She has a really good eye for taking such wonderful pictures and was so great with our family, friends and guests and was able to make everyone relax, feel comfortable and happy and that shows in our pictures! Every bride works so hard to make sure she has the most beautiful flowers, cake, dress, etc so it is extremely important to make sure the pictures are perfect to capture it all because the wedding is only one day and the pictures will last a lifetime!
We've already referred Crissy to a friend getting married next year and without a doubt will ask her to be a part of our next special occasion!!

I don't know where to begin!! I just want EVERYONE I know (and don't know for that matter) to use Crissy! I still remember the night that Stacy, our moms, and I met with her at Barnes and Noble. After we sat and talked with Crissy and our meeting was over the four of us sat there and talked about how we loved her and didn't want to meet with anyone else! Crissy truly offers some of the best prices around, especially for the quality product and attention you receive! She made me feel important and genuinely wanted me to be happy with every aspect of my wedding, not just the photography!
Crissy goes WAY beyond the call of duty and gives you the personalized attention every bride wants! She came to our rehearsal, met me at another location the DAY of the wedding to take pictures of me in my dress, helped me at the reception by getting plates when it was time for the cake cutting because we couldn't find the head caterer, and worked on our wedding photos during Christmas so I could show my relatives our photos before they left town! How many vendors offer this kind of service? She even offered after the wedding to come take pictures of me in my dress with my grandparents, whom due to sudden illness missed the wedding! Our pictures are fabulous and everyone who has seen them wants to know who our photographer was. My sister has already said she knows who her photographer will be for her wedding one day~Crissy Bayless!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You have been such a pleasure to work with! From the moment Dean and I sat down with you to discuss our wedding we knew you were the perfect fit for us. Our engagement photos were amazing, and you were so easy and fun to work with. We really appreciate your coming to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, too. Most of all, though, we want to say thank you for the beautiful job you did photographing our special day. You got all the shots we asked for and many, many more creative and imaginative shots than we could have thought of. We are proud of our pics and are beyond satisfied with your work and professionalism. We definitely plan on calling on you in the future when it comes time to document our growing family. Crissy, you are a sweetheart who helped make our wedding the huge success it was! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job.

Wow! What can I say? Our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing.
I had met with so many photographers and always left feeling unsure. I was looking for someone who was willing to work my ideas into theirs. When we met Crissy my mother and I knew that second she was the perfect Photographer for us. Not only is her work fabulous but she is also a dream to work with. She is so nice and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. She drove all the way to Rome (2 hours) to shoot our engagement pictures. She even came to our rehearsal so that she could see where she needed to be to get the perfect shot. I could not have asked for more. Everyone raves about how wonderful our pictures are.
Most importantly, after having the opportunity to work with Crissy, I now consider her my friend not just my wedding photographer. She is such pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to any one who is getting married.
Crissy did a fabulous job for us and I can't recommend her enough. We were very pleased with her style of photography and she did a great job capturing the entire event. She was not intrusive and made us feel at ease when times were chaotic.
Additionally, Crissy is extremely professional and our photos were given to us in an expediting manner. We have shared our album with many of our friends and family and we ALWAYS get many compliments. In result to her great work, my sister and good friend are now using her for their weddings this Spring.
Crissy was one of my favorite people that we hired for our wedding services and I'm glad we used her!
September 9, 2005
Crissy's photographs captured exactly what we wanted from our Big Event. We wanted primarily candid shots that captured the look and feel of the wedding and reception, and she did that beautifully, without being intrusive. She took time prior to the wedding to get to know us and make sure she understood the flow of the event and what moments to capture that we knew ahead of time what would be important. She also took the time to review all the proofs with us so that our album came out even better than we'd imagined.
The results were spectacular! We got many great comments on how well she interacted with our family and guests. The timely, almost immediate, responses from her (unlike many other photographers I'd contacted) were wonderful!
She was always positive, and is someone I'd now call a friend.

This letter is just a small token of our great appreciation for the photographs taken at our wedding, July 2, 2005. The pictures are truly priceless and will be cherished forever. You are not only a spectacular photographer but also a wonderful person. You handled our memorable occasion with professionalism and patience. We know there could not have been a soul to take your place. Our appreciation begins from the first email to today's. Your prompt responses to our questions, your ability to work out our special needs, your understanding of specific requests that we thought would only be possible if we did them ourselves, your timeliness and attitude, all contributed to making our wedding and experience with you a treasure. We want you to know that to us you are no longer just a photographer but a family friend. We want to thank you once again and look forward to working with you with our daughter Isabella and any future family events.

I just want you to know how much I appreciate your work during my tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives and my campaign for the U.S. Senate last year. You have a remarkable gift for capturing the moment with your camera. Whenever you were with me, I knew your keen eye and instinctive sense of timing would get us just the right shots to tell the story and preserve history in the making.
Whether it was the look of excitement and wonder in a little boy’s eyes at the Barnesville Buggy Days parade, the feelings and moods of the crowd at rallies and town hall meetings, the joy reflected in the faces of my family and friends on primary and runoff election nights at Manuel’s Tavern, or their great disappointment on that cold November evening after the polls closed—you always got the shots without getting in the way.
Crissy, you are an extraordinary photographer—a talented artist with a steady hand and a clear vision of how to use your camera to bring out the best in your subjects. You have blessed me in more ways than I can say. Thank you for sharing your talent with me.

Using her camera like a paintbrush, Crissy Bayless is able to capture and interpret moments in time perfectly. Whether she's photographing phenomenal sports moments, or a quiet moment on a beach, her photographs grab the essence of the moment. Viewing the photos, you can hear the soft purr of the waves on the beach or the collective gasp of fans at the ballpark. Framing swatches of life with such clarity is a rare talent and Crissy Bayless has the stuff of greatness.

Putting a website together takes a lot of time, ideas, and people. We subscribe to the theory that “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” and with that in mind the most valuable contribution to our website was from the very talented services of our photographer, Crissy Bayless. Her talent and professionalism not only gave us a great finished product, but also made the entire process run much smoother than anticipated. Thanks Crissy for all of your help.
