Annear Wedding Films is a husband and wife team. We are family oriented and enjoy learning about people and their history. Our emphasis on family and our passion for getting to know people is what sets us apart from the rest. We produce artistic films while being unobtrusive and aware of our surroundings. We believe in community over competition and strive to work as a team alongside our fellow wedding vendors. We proudly welcome everyone regardless of religion, gender, race, or sexual orientation.

Crystal - Lead Filmmaker & Editor
When I was a teenager I used to make mix tapes and CD's for all of my friends. I always have music on in the background and I'm a little obsessed with adding songs to my Pandora account. I'm my happiest when I'm at the beach and I could spend every second with my little family doing absolutely nothing. Baking is the worst, but I really enjoy cooking. Most of the time I'm left-handed but I'm sometimes ambidextrous. My family is everything to me. Whenever we have a free weekend, we are spending it with our family.

I grew up feeling like I should have been born in the 1930's. I love antique cars and homes - Although, I'm not a fan of working on them. I have a "dad-a-base" full of the "punniest" jokes. I am a Pogs Champion - no really, I was in the paper for winning as a kid. I participated in theatre in high school and have always had a love for the arts. I enjoy thrifting and keeping older items out of the landfill. I am my happiest when I'm around people, especially when I'm spending time with my family.
