My goal as a photographer is to provide great, personal photos at an affordable price. As a woman who got married right out of college, with a single mom paying for my wedding on a teacher's salary, I really understand the meaning of a budget wedding. While I was lucky enough to have an uncle in the wedding photography business to shoot my own, I was shocked by what some of my other friends had to pay in order to get quality photos not only of their weddings, but other important family events, such as maternity shots & baby & family photos. While I've always loved being behind a camera, I have begun to feel passionately that should people should be able to get great photos of life's "heavenly moments" without breaking the bank.
On your wedding day, I want you to feel like a close friend is photographing your wedding -- someone who cares about the details being as you want them, someone who will listen if you need to talk, or notice when you don't want to be bothered to post or notice a camera. And most of all, I want to create a visual narrative of how you experienced your day.
I am committed to providing beautiful & affordable photography for every bride. To borrow a phrase from the great Dr. Seuss, in my opinion, a wedding's a wedding, no matter how small! Consequently, I work with every bride to plan the photography experience that they uniquely desire.

" Thanks, guys! I had so much fun shooting your wedding :) "
"Celeste was amazing, and makes such a sincere effort to get to know a couple before their wedding day and then to plan the photography the day of to match all of the couple's requests. I would highly recommend her to anyone for wedding or any other photography services. She is very professional, and coordinated with all of the other vendors. She is a pro at herding and posing large groups of people (might be the teacher in her - she was a high school teacher in her first career! ) She also does beautiful family and child portraits!"
"I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Celestial Sights Photography. Celeste is such a kind-hearted person who is so passionate about photography. She is really fun to work with and unlike any photographer I have ever been around. She has super high standards for her work and gives so much to her clients- you'll discover this when you contact her. She made sure to get every single shot I desired, and was a pro at dealing with family drama. Her shots of my wedding were incredible and absolutely everything was captured. She works with your budget and makes the whole experience something to be excited about. She gives the best direction, is extremely efficient, and makes sure you and your significant other are the stars of the show. I know my husband and I will be back for more photos in the future. Celeste captured light, love, and laughter on my wedding day and I will always be grateful for those memories I can now cherish forever."
"Celeste is amazing. She was effortlessly able to blend in with our guests and didn't miss a shot. Celeste is so friendly and approachable that having her as our photographer was a no-brainer! We loved having Celeste as a part of our big day and hope to hire her again for future events."
