My Photographic History

Welcome to Summer Bear Photography, my name is Crystal Bear and I am the lead photographer.
I am thrilled that you are considering me to capture your life moments! Photography is NOT just what I do…it’s more like my calling. There are a lot of people who can take a great photo, but I want every one of my clients to feel that I’ve given them a masterpiece…no matter what their budget.
I come from a prestigious history of photographers, one who was my great-grandfather, Julian P. Graham, he photographed many famous, beautiful and glamorous people that visited, played and lived on the Monterrey Peninsula, including Betty Davis, Clark Gable, and John F. Kennedy, just to name a few. His ability to genuinely capture the personality of his clients has inspired me to follow in his footsteps.
My goal is to capture those special moments that make life worth living in a natural, joyful and timeless way. As a wedding and family photographer, my desire is to capture every milestone in my clients lives from their engagement to their child’s graduation!
I strive to create a comfortable and relaxing environment for all my clients and am open to ideas, requests, and opinions of my clients. My edits are clean, clear and crisp. I love doing trendy and fun additional edits as a complimentary service to my clients.
I look forward to meeting new and interesting people in the years to come!
