 I loved working with Christal. She knew how to capture my brand with a balance of work and fun. She was on point and timely in all her replies before the photoshoot day, and I was immediately at ease in front of the camera. Her guidance, business, and brand knowledge were helpful. She is 100% behind you and provides the framework so that you will succeed too. Give her a call and start today!”

we are more than in love with our pictures! We are on cloud 9 and these pictures are absolutely breathtaking


We are so thankful and I literally can’t put into words how much these mean to us. You captured this day beautifully and we are forever grateful for the Marshall family. Without you guys, none of this would have been possible

Christal and Andrew

did a phenomenal job photographing

and videoing my wedding!

They have such great energy and

are so professional and talented.

The wedding day was so busy, but thanks to them my husband and I have been able to experience it in all its beauty. The experience has been so exciting, even seeing everything taken when we weren't around.


The shots/videos of the dresses, flowers, rings, and programs were breathtaking, and the special moments captured are something we and our family are so thankful to be able to re-live for the rest of our lives.

Much thanks to Virginia Photos and Films!

Megan and Ryan

Christal and her husband Andrew are the best photographers I’ve ever met. They are incredible!

Christal did several meeting with me to insure that my husband and I would get the pictures we wanted! The day of the wedding Christal and Andrew showed up and started shooting all the pictures my husband and I requested. Most of all, they also got the videos we requested as well!

And, their turn around time was incredible, we had our wedding on Saturday night and by Sunday, we had all our pictures and videos.

Virginia Photos and Films, is the best!

Haley and Tim

Christal is amazing! She knows what she’s doing and is super helpful and attentive. My husband’s family and mine felt like they had known her for years. We had a blast! Also, my photos were delivered to me in less than 24 hours!

The McDaniels'

Professional and hospitable experience. The studio is warm and inviting. The mood was so positive which just makes for great photo opportunities. Plus, I felt like every second was captured and no "I hope you got that" moments were missed. Phenomenal quality and overall experience.

Jennafer and Daniel

Thank you so much Christal Marie Marshall! Thank you for sharing this special day with us, and also for helping me keep calm and feel like a princess lol you guys did an amazing job and everyone LOVED your photo booth!!

The Kelley Family

This was our first family photo session since my daughters newborn photos. I honestly didn’t have high hopes because, well, toddlers and babies give you what they give you and don’t take direction very well. C did a great job corralling our little ones and even managed to get a few photos where we’re ALL looking and smiling. And many of my kids true attitudes that I’ll forever cherish. So thankful for the opportunity to work with this company!

Ryan and Brittany

We have been with Christal for almost 4 years now and we could not live without her!! She has captured every moment in our lives and made them beautiful and unforgettable. Her work is as amazing as her heart; a must book company for sure! She will do anything possible to meet your needs.

Caitlin and Allen

Trying to find the right words to write a review for Marshall Arts Studio Photography was near impossible as it was such a phenomenal experience! We were feeling a little nervous for our engagement session but it was such a wonderful time! Working with Christal is just so easy, makes everything so comfortable and fun!! Our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful, we truly couldn’t be happier. 

We are beyond excited to work with Marshall Arts Studio Photography again and cannot wait to have them shoot our wedding photos!!

Ali and Tommy

Marshall Arts Photography was one of the best decision we made for our wedding. My husband and I got married on Sept. 24, 2018 on the beach in Sandbridge VA. Christal is such an awesome person and has great energy. She not only capture photos but memories to last a lifetime. Everytime we look at our photos we are going to remember how much love joy and happiness were in each shot. My husband and I could not be more grateful to have Christal take our photos. She knows exactly what she is doing especially with the fact neither I or him know how to properly take a good picture. I have watch our highlight video over and over again since we received it and not once did I not I cry, she caught everything. Now for the brides that are doing destination wedding and don't have the opportunity to meet a photographer trust and believe me working with Marshall Arts Photography is the way to go. I told her everything I wanted done as far as photos and on the video. she did that and more. We love you Christal and thank you so much for everything!!!! You are a true blessing and wish you all the best because you are the best!!!

Heidi and Andrew

Our wedding photos are amazing, this is the photographer to use! She is professional, and reliable with an amazing personality.

Tabitha and Ryan

5 stars wouldn't be a rating high enough! Absolutely wonderful to work with and the pictures were amazing (and we got them within a couple days)! We didn't have a lot of time for pictures but they were efficient and got all our photos with time to spare! Made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. They exceeded every expectation we had, in both experience and the quality of the pictures! Will definitely be recommending them to others!

Cora T.

I don’t have enough wonderful things to say about Marshall Arts Studio! Christal is absolutely amazing at everything she does. She was very intentional about the videography for the wedding and helped our photographer out a lot in making sure that the shots we had were clear of signs and had good lighting/angles. Christal put together the most beautiful videos of my wedding day that I will treasure for the rest of my life. She was also extremely quick in getting my video back to me and made sure I had the video within two days after my wedding! I can not recommend her more for photography and videography needs. I will definitely use her for any and all future photography and videography needs!!

Rebecca D.

Working with Christal  was the easiest thing about planning my wedding! She has so much experience, does an amazing job, and is so personable and really gets to know what you like! If you’re looking for a photographer that does great work on a great budget look no further! We got a package that included an engagement session AND we added a photo booth for not too much more money! Such an amazing deal and even MORE AMAZING photos! If you don’t pick Christal then you’re missing out!

Nicole C

Christal was AMAZING to work with! She made everyone in our wedding party feel comfortable and most importantly she made it so much FUN! Everyone had a blast! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for pictures or video for any special events! If you want some to really be apart of your special event and share in those special moments she would be the one! I can't thank you enough

Heidi K

My fiance and I just had our engagement pictures done with Christal at the Graffiti District and had a blast!! She made us feel completely comfortable and was able to capture us at our truest, and cute-est, moments! She suggested the perfect location for us and the pictures are perfect. The video clip summarizes our time so well! What a wonderful first photo shoot with her and we are so excited for the wedding photos!!

Morgan C.

Amazing! They were both comfortable to work with, on time, fun, the photo booth was the biggest hit, and the pictures are fantastic! My husband and I keep looking through them all and saying we can’t choose the ones we want to print because they’re all incredible


PS We also got our photos and a video within like 12 hours of the wedding!

Antoinette T.

HANDS DOWN!!! I had the best experience with both my engagement and wedding photography sessions. I love the fact that Christal has a no pressure approach as it can get kind of awkward at times (especially not being a professional model lol). All of my photos came out so beautiful! And the videography... brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. Definitely something that I will cherish and watch over and over for years to come! Not to mention I got all my pictures and videos the next day! If you are considering working with Christal PLEASE DO! Very professional and flexible!!! Love Marshall Arts studio!!!

Becky M.

Marshall Arts Studio did an amazing job making the video for our preschool. Her talent at capturing the beauty and wonder of the children was outstanding. We are so proud to be able to use her video to represent our preschool. She was easy to work with and truly brought out the best in us as she videotaped everything! Thank you!!!


Christal did a phenomenal job capturing my baby sisters wedding! The videography was absolutely beautiful. I still cry watching it. Thank you for you professionalism and genuine concern about capturing the special moments. Thank you for all your hard work!! And not to mention the fact that after you worked so hard that day (trampling through mud) we got the photos and video the very next day! Your dedication and artistry doesn’t go unnoticed. You are truly a beautiful soul and I can not wait to work with you again! HANDS DOWN you are the BEST!

Ashley G.

Christal was so flexible with our video shoot time and did an amazing job bringing my vision to life! We love it and will cherish it forever!

Brianna F.

Christal did a fantastic job taking our family pictures. She was wonderful with our kids and kept their attention the whole shoot! They loved being able to suggest our next location; and her silly phrases to kept them laughing! Christal was also very accommodating to our schedule changes while we were booking the session. She had our pictures back within a day! I recommend Marshall Arts Studio for your portrait needs, we will be sure to use her again for our next memory making moment!

Kim H.

We had our family photo shoot yesterday and it was the best experience we've had yet! You both were wonderful and our photographs came out beautiful! Not only creative, professional, but very flexible for weather issues! I CANNOT thank you enough! I will recommend as much as I can!

Melissa H.

It's not easy photographing a 3 and almost two year old. Christal kept it moving and made it lots of fun! Her studio was perfect for inside shots, and the yard was wonderful for natural lighting photos. We have so many pictures to choose from-and having the right to print what we want is a bonus. Christal offers it all, however! Thanks for a great experience!

Antoinette H.

OMG! We LOVE it! Thank you so much! We had a great time getting to know you. And we appreciate all of your guidance throughout the process!

Jessica J.

We LOVED our family session with Christal! Wow-her energy is contagious and it made the session fun and easy for everyone. She has a wonderful eye for capturing the perfect moment and I really feel like she understood our family's style. You can tell that photography is not only something she's skilled at, but something she truly loves to do. Absolutely recommended.

Rebbeca F.

I am so incredibly happy with how my engagement photos turned out! We had so much fun with Christal Marie Marshall and she did an amazing job of capturing sweet moments!

Sharrele L.

Jodie B.

The most wonderful experience at our wedding last night! More than I could have ever expected, very professional, fun to work with. Made our wedding such a memorable day. I highly recommend and gladly recommend to everyone i know!

Olivia G.

Christal was such a pleasure to work with. My normally super shy husband, who HATES getting pictures done said how much he enjoyed her personality and how she put him at ease during the busiest day for pictures probably in his life, our wedding! We loved the final photos and hope we can work with her again to capture more of life's moments!

Chrisany A.

Loved working with Christal! Our engagement video was nothing short of amazing and fun! Her pictures are flawless. She’s our family photographer for life!

Sam S.

Best photo shoot ever. It’s so much fun to have a photo shoot done by Christal. She really makes the event fun and brings out the best in people.

I've finally gotten time to look through all of the photos, and they are beautiful! I am so grateful to have a wonder photographer like you to document my journey with the love of my life. Thank you so very much we appreciate it so so much

Lerma Z.

 I love all of them and I have a few favorites. You're amazing Christal!

Peggy S.

Y'all. Y'ALL. We had family photos done with Christal Marshall of Marshall Arts Studio today and they are amazing. You know how self-conscious I am. Not once did I worry about that, she was fantastic and creative and put me right at ease. And I already have my images! Holy smokes, she hustles. Christal, thank you for some beautiful images and a fun time in the heat. I'm going to need more walls to hang up everything I want to frame! If you need fun and beautiful photos, Christal is the photographer you NEED!

Amanda H.

Thank you so much! We love them. 😊

Latoya W.

 You are such an amazing photographer. The girls really enjoyed working with and was super excited about the pics

Christine B.

Christal has so much energy and does such a great job with the kids. She has taken amazing photos of our family. I highly recommend her!

Andrea B.

Christal has taken our maternity photos, our newborn daughter's photos, and most recently our family photos. She is so energetic and such a blast to work with!!! All of our pictures have been completely stunning. 

Olya P.

Thank you for creating such a beautiful video and capturing the love and happiness of our wedding day. Everyone loved the photo booth and the cute and funny props. You guys were great and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a videographer!

"We have been with Christal for 2 years now after we meet over a Facebook ad. She has become like part of the family! Her pictures are stunning and we always have such a blast working with her. Always our go to woman for those big events in our lives! Thank you Christal :D " 

Emily W. 

"When my now husband and I began planning our Wedding, I immediately knew who we should have as our photographer (even before I knew much else). I had seen Christal's work before and knew she would do a great job. When we looked at her website, her prices where competitive and she had the added benefit of flexibility to meet our needs (you can hire her hourly). I knew the pictures would be good and I knew she and Andrew (her husband) are nice people..." 

Jennifer B.

Crystal is quite patient and innovative. We love the pictures. She is interactive with the children and that prompts them to take great pictures. Her prices are reasonable for a 30-minute shoot, which is all you really need, especially with children. The fact that she uses part of the proceeds for missions, is an important reason to use her services. You get great pictures and you are providing for His Kingdom! It was a lot of fun and I was happy with the outcome.

Amanda R.

Thanks again. I couldn't be happier with them. We will definitely be seeing you soon for any of our photo needs

Amanda S.

They look great! I love them, thank you so so much!

Thank you for our beautiful photos and a fun time getting them taken!"

Rose S. 

 "We found her (Christal) on the fly when our original photographer no showed and I had 15-20 relatives already on site for the shoot. As soon as she finished the session she was there for she took care of us! We loved the photos so much we used her for our maternity session and she knocked it out of the park again and in 15 minutes!!!! I was shocked she got so many quality photos in such a short amount of time! My husband and I and our 15-20 relatives all highly recommend!"
