Frozen in Time

Portrait + Wedding Photography for Your Special Moments


Our Story

CJ started his first photography business in 2014 when he snapped a picture of his childhood dog Oreo. Now that she has passed over the rainbow bridge, photos mean more to CJ than anything else. The right photos can remind us of special moments, and even the mundane ones that become special later. His photos attempt to capture those who live enthusiastically and with love. We believe the ordinary moments come to life so much more behind the camera, and trapping those moments is why we are here. 

Come and tell me more about yourself! I can't wait to meet you.

I recently got my first ever photoshoot done with Medusa's crown photography. I was feeling pretty nervous but excited, it was a couple's photoshoot of me and my boyfriend. CJ made the experience feel super fun, simple and easy!! I am in loooveee with the way the pictures turned out and I highly recommend going to them for all of your photography needs!! You will not regret it!! The quality is unbeatable and I had so much fun while doing it!! I wish I had done this sooner, and will definitely be going to Medusa's crown photography for all of my future photography needs!!

The best photographer I know and the photos speak for it! Medusa’s Crown is the only place I will go for photography.

CJ was the best person we could have hired to take our pictures! He was flexible and truly cared about the vision I had in mind. The pictures exceed every expectation I could have ever had! I'd Christopher Edwards (CJ) to anyone.
