Your precious memories deserve to be preserved in time and captured in portraits for generations to come.

Crystal Sayen Photography is a full service photographer based in St. Michael, Minnesota. We have a studio located in downtown Monticello, MN. We specialize in capturing life's most precious moments. From births to weddings, we are along for the entire ride. Pregnancy and the first years of childhood are some of the most cherished times in our lives. Having a photographic record of those teeny toes that will soon be running all over your house is truly something that can be treasured forever. From the magic of childhood and the first look between a bride and groom on their wedding day, I will preserve your moments for generations to come. I am so honored you are here! Please take a moment to browse through my site to see if I am the right fit to capture your special memories.


“Absolutely recommend. We’ve searched for years to find a photographer of her caliber. She is creative, patient, kind, funny and a talented editor. My only hesitation is that recommending her to everyone will mean she’ll get too busy to keep getting us in so quickly!”

“Crystal Sayen Photography is Amazing! Beautiful pictures. Would highly recommend to everyone - whether it be for weddings, baby pictures. Family pictures, senior pictures etc. Crystal will make sure you LOVE your photos.”

“Crystal has been our family photographer for years! Love her compassion, her work is beautiful!, and her patience is outstanding!!! I have 5 children and trust me when I say to get the little ones to cooperate and sit still takes a miracle worker...... she truly is just that!!!”
