Hey ya'll! So much has happened since my last blog, I don't know where to begin but lets catch up then I will share photos of my new favorite (it is truly breath taking) location with you.
Cristal Malek Photography officially opened in Downtown El Campo Texas, last Thursday, November 9th. It feels fantastic to be able to walk out my backdoor to the assortment of stunning textures in my own alley. Several people have asked me why I moved my primary location and why I decided to become and El Campo Texas Photographer. The answer, quite simply, is it is where I want to be most. There's something about a small town that grasps my heart. Aside from the fact that the people are friendly, the business are truly still family owned and operated, and the food is ah-may-zing, I enjoy taking a step back and living at a different pace!!! Now about that food, Yes I love some good BBQ, kolaches, tacos, and ya'll, they have the BEST coffee shop I have ever been too! Seriously if you know me then you know I have a gold starbucks card with my name on it issued by the company but the white chocolate mocha at "The Coffee Bar" blows them away.
Ok now back to the location and all of its glory. I had the pleasure of meeting with the property manager for a tour of the grounds which she so graciously took time from her day to do. As I was driving onto the property it became quiet clear the this was a well cared for family owned estate.
If you weren't sure why I made the move before I am sure you know now. After you catch your breath contact me to book your next session here! I can guarantee some fabulous images along with the feeling of peace and tranquility as you embrace your surroundings and the quiet that comes along with it. Don't worry my Houston people, I will still be working on location here as a Houston Photographer but it might be worth the drive to step out of your comfort zone for an exceptional experience.
