Meet The Crew

Camera B&W-1_edited.jpg


We are Kaili & Crystal, professional luxury photographers and owners of CK Studios in Northern Colorado. It is our focus and passion to make your senior look and feel like the rock star that they truly are.


Our studio is located in Briggsdale, Colorado. We travel all over Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska creating luxury, top-of-the-line portrait experiences.

We know that you value and appreciate heirloom albums and one-of-a-kind wall hangings, but don't have the time to figure out how to build an album, order canvases, or decipher print sizes.

We want to walk you through the whole process, from selecting the perfect outfits for your images, to helping you pick out the best wall hangings and framed prints to hang on your walls, to ensuring that your art work is absolutely perfect upon delivery.

I was born in Northern Wyoming, and moved south to Longmont, Colorado when I was 3. I grew up exploring Boulder County, and the beauty that Northern Colorado has to offer.


I picked up my first Nikon F3 film camera when I took a Photo 101 course in high school. Honestly, I took the class because I thought it would be an easy "A"(narrator: "It wasn't.") But, with help from a wonderful instructor, that sleeper course turned into a life-long passion that, in 2015, gave birth to CK Studios.

I like to spend my free time hiking, biking, tubing down the Cache la Poudre with my family, or otherwise enjoying all that a life in Northern Colorado has to offer. I enjoy collecting vinyl records (both old AND new), and watching Marvel movies with my kids. I also spent 4 years coaching football at Prairie High School in New Raymer, Colorado - Go Mustangs!

Hope to meet you soon!

I'm a native Colorado girl. I was born in Fort Collins, and grew up in Windsor. I spent a lot of time on the lake, waterskiing, barbecuing, fishing and camping.


I grew up a tomboy. I did all the things the boys could do, and then some (I still can, and do!) I started photographing basketball and volleyball games at our local high school, and have even been tackled a time or two on the sideline.

I like to spend my free time working in the garage or in the garden, playing with our two dogs, and taking walks with my family.
