"Our photo session was relaxed, enjoyable and hassle-free. I had thought that a photography session might feel awkward, but Charlotte took care of all of the details and made the experience fun. And most importantly, of course, the photos look fantastic!"

Charlotte is simply incredible. The whole experience was brilliant from start to finish - she should get 10 stars!
Charlotte has an eye for highlighting beauty and makes you feel so beautiful. She is professional, efficient, friendly and, oh so talented.
She is just the ultimate photographer. She understands exactly your idea of what you want your pictures to look like. Even better, she takes your idea and makes a masterpiece from it.
I could not recommend Charlotte enough. Everyone should have the chance to pass a couple of minutes in front of her lenses.

When our youngest daughter graduated from MIS two years ago we decided to take some family pictures. We knew of Charlottes work and booked her as our first choice for this important event; our last daughter leaving home. We had two hours with a lots of fun in her studio which resulted in lovely displays now decorating our living room. Dispite our girls living scattered around Europe they are fighting and smiling to us every day. Thank for those memories, Charlotte.
Talented photographer! As a hobby photographer myself I am very particular about photos but Charlotte blew me away when she shot my children's birthday portraits. I have worked with many other portrait professionals but nobody captures the "life" and essence of my children's personalities as perfectly as Charlotte. Her creativity is astounding, as well as her use of natural light. I peek into Charlotte's portfolio every now and then and she continues to amaze. Highly recommended.

I must admit, leading up to the shoot, I was quite nervous. The planning before hand had been crazy, with busy schedules and the ever changing weather into rain. However, once we finally met, it turned out to be perfect. Charlotte and her assistant Peter instantly lightened the mood and made me feel comfortable, we were joking around throughout the entire shoot. There wasn't much that I had to do or think about, I just had to be there. Charlotte came up with the most magnificent locations to shoot at, my personal favorite being at the lake. I never know how to behave when my picture is being taken, so Charlotte's guidance was very helpful, while she also let me be myself. Overall, the shoot was an incredible experience. The atmosphere was fun and laid back, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am overjoyed with the results, thank you!

Charlotte is incredibly easy to work with: she has mountains of ideas and has a knack for putting you at ease. If you are not happy, she's not happy and she'll do whatever it takes to get you there. This won't be the last time I take photos with her!

Charlotte has a beautiful gift, the moments she captures touches your heart that lasts forever.
From senior photos to head shots she can do it all while remaining friendly and professional. We especially enjoy how she has you mirror her movements for the ease of a great shot. Our family is blessed to have Charlotte and her prints in our lives.
September 16, 2018 We had a mother/daughter and individual glam photo-shooting with Charlotte. It was an unforgettable experience! Being a cancer survivor as well as having faced some weight gain from meds in the past months following a shoulder operation, I had some hesitations going into the photo shoot. However, I left her studio with a newfound confidence and feeling empowered and this newly found feeling has stayed! As a professional artist myself, I was taken by Charlotte’s attention to details, aesthetics and perfection. She is patient, made us feel at ease and with her directions on how to pose, she captured our personalities perfectly. Our creative energies meshed really well and my daughter and I had so much fun, we could have shot for hours! These photos will be a Christmas gift to my husband/father and I’m sure he’ll be just as blown away by the final results as we are. Thanks Charlotte - you rock! A definite recommend.

Having the opportunity to work together with Charlotte was incredible. Not only does she make it fun, but she also makes it easy and comfortable while she's taking pictures of you. As well as the pictures turned out to be great!
Julia Breuer gives 5 stars
I had an amazing experience with Charlotte! She is professional, meticulous and has a fantastic ability to make you feel completely comfortable in front of a camera. You can tell that she thought through my photo shoot ahead of time and wanted to capture the best me she thought possible! The photos are exquisite and will be heirlooms for my children and their children. She takes her work extremely seriously and this shows through-out every step of the photo experience even down to the big reveal of the beautiful photos (an experience in itself!). I would recommend her to everyone I know looking for a photographer. Thank you Charlotte!
Stefanie Del Rosso
Working with Charlotte is one of my favourite things, however getting my pictures taken is typically scary as I feel so awkward and never know what to do. Charlotte has an effortless ability to make me feel so comfortable. From countless compliments to enthusiastic directing, she does what ever it takes to get the best picture. Its always a great time and the results are nothing short of excellent.
Charlotte is a pro. She makes you feel comfortable, encourages you to try different poses and just manages to captures your best smile.

March 20, 2018 Me and my daughter had a glam shoot. I am so very pleased with the pictures! They are so natural and relaxed at the same time as they are so glam😊 great day that was so beyond my expectations!
Ellen and Hanna
Since many years I am an addicted fan of Charlotte and her photos of my children.
The glamour photos of me and my daughters was a MUST! We girls no matter if teenagers or a little older often focus on our weaknesses and we always have the magazines in our mind, when we evaluate ourselves.
On this occasion we had the opportunity to be a part of a glamour world and we loved it. The photos do something very positive to us and our own self-assessment .
Charlotte is professional and it is so easy to be in front of her lense. You never feel awkward or in the wrong place. I can only suggest all mothers and daughters to do this together! Marianne Seifert and daughters
Charlotte Krystolovich 5 stars !
Charlotte is a kind and professional photographer with exceptional talent. We did a family mini Christmas shoot with her. Charlotte and her assistant Lois were patient with my three young children and made the whole experience fun for them. We got some wonderful pictures that we will treasure. I highly recommend Charlotte!

Working with Charlotte was an absolute pleasure. Not only do I love the photos, but the warm atmosphere helped me to be myself in front the camera! The photos even helped me set off my modeling career.
Anne Margrethe Zachariassen
Charlotte took my photo at a dinner recently just between meals and sent it to me. I was really happy with the photo as I look stunning. My first thought was "is that really me". Do I look this pretty. In contrast to all photos taken of me the last many years this one does not make me look old and sad. The reason why I look happy, pretty and comfortable is due to the chemistry Charlotte brings to the table as a photographerI am very happy with the photo and I looks like the young version of myself even though that the 75 years of course shines through as well. I got the photo printed and gave it to my children and grandchildren and they are very happy with my smiling to them in their house.
I want to thank Charlotte for her very professional service. I felt that the photo session was done in a very smooth environment and I like my new photos very much. I would always recommend to engage Charlotte for private and professional photos again.
Dr. Valerie Barth Lawyer/Rechtsanwältin
I was very satisfied with and impressed the photos taken by Charlotte. The session was made in a highly professional, warm and friendly atmosphere. Even for persons who generally don’t like photo shootings as me, it was a good and relaxed experience. Preparation guidance my Charlotte (make up, hair, clothing) was really helpful. Charlotte seems to be very experienced in making portraits in various poses and surroundings. Prices rather high, but it worth it. I was provided with a broad number of photos to choose the ones to be ordered. Deliveries have been made in time and high quality as agreed and expected. Will definitely recommend her to others and consider to come back with my family for some family pictures.
For family pictures we now have worked with Charlotte twice and every time has been a great pleasant experience. Charlotte manages to create a wonderful atmosphere. As a very skilled and creative photographer Charlotte finds the perfect spot outside and always has great ideas. Somehow, she manages to work out the beauty of each individual and to transport this to expressive pictures of memorable moments.
Elke Haetzel, Grünwald
You created a very relaxed and fun atmosphere which is reflected in the photos. Your professional excellence and your positive personality made the shooting session very special! On top everyone absolutely loved our holiday cards so much. Thank you!!!!
Family photo of six done in no time at all, Charlotte captures all of us laughing....Incredible! Two dogs not even more than 1 year and a puppy Charlotte manages to keep them still and pose in beautiful ways...Charlotte is a natural...born with the gift to take fantastic photos as well as making you feel totally relaxed and enjoying the shooting session with her!
Charlotte, you are a professional, passionate woman who goes out of her way to create a comfortable and enjoyable environment. I felt very relaxed throughout the photoshoot. Your creative work has now become my memories. The photos came out so much better than I could ever have expected. My family and friends love the results for which I have received so many compliments. I will surely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for a photographer. Thanks again for a wonderful day
Soeren Lund, Lego
I was in the need for corporate pictures for my CV etc. but did not want the typical boring studio headshots. So I went to Charlotte and discussed it with her. Once she understood my needs, she took charge and with a relaxed and humorous attitude she guided me firmly through the photo session. I am very pleased with the outcome and I strongly recommend Charlotte to people who want pictures with an attitude.
Blue, Lana Reuss
Charlotte took a one year old, 40 kilo puppy and an inexperienced dog owner, put them in her studio and created many great pictures. One fabulous, enlarged portrait hangs proudly as you enter our home. It is more like a piece of art. Thank you Charlotte!
Vanessa Espinosa de Archundia
So easy to relax with Charlotte while posing for pictures. She gets exactly your idea of what you expect your pictures to look like and she guides you all the way to achieve your goal.
Charlotte is a passionate photographer and also enjoys every moment of the shoot. She made fantastic pictures of our kids and myself. We had a wonderful evening and felt all very comfortable and relaxed during the shoot. The photos were a Christmas gift to my husband/father. They were amazing and everyone loved them. I will definitely recommend her to anyone I know. Thank you Charlotte and wish you all the best for the future and good luck. xx
we could not be happier with the photos you took and the various products we purchased. Everyone looks relaxed, happy and natural in all the photos. We will treasure them always. Thank you.

Charlotte was an absolute joy to work with! She is an excellent photographer with an artistic eye. Charlotte's warm personality made the whole photo shoot experience relaxed and fun. I will hire her for a family session as soon as we will be back in Munich.
Christian Hindkjaer, Lawyer and Partner Advokaterne i Aarhus
Having my photo taken has always been a necessary evil for me. Charlotte changed all that. Charlotte is fast and knows what she is doing so despite it being a rainy day the whole session was over in less than an hour and I felt nothing but comfortable throughout. She bent some rules of her own and made me a finished product within evening. She was worth every penny and I was happy to pay her more than she asked for a fast and superb service.
With two little kids, picture taking can be a challenge. Charlotte made them laugh and brought out their natural smiles. The session was not rushed and we felt very comfortable considering we had been in Germany only a few months. The pictures were beautiful. I would definitely use Charlotte again for photos. She did a wonderful job.
We haven’t taken a family portrait in a while and so the family was hesitant to spend the afternoon at a photo session. However, once everyone was there it went quickly and smoothly thanks to Charlotte and Victor, who was a great assistant. Her choice of locations and time of day to shoot were very thought out and helped make the session successful. Charlotte’s information blog on how to organise our photos, clothing and other tips also really helped and our pictures are much better because of it. We have had so many complements on our photos and we have recommended her to many of our friends.
I love that you kept in contact with me. From booking the session to the blog sneak peek, to picking up my images, you took that added step to let me know where you were in the process. I felt like your most special client and I couldn’t have asked for more beautiful engagement photos!
Maria Neergaard, Denmark
Working with Charlotte has been an absolute pleasure! She’s an amazing professional and has a wonderful way of putting people at ease. Her eye is great; she knows what will make a perfect, in my case professional headshot and is capable of creating the right setting giving me amazing pictures. I love her style, love her work!
