I could never say enough good things about Celeste. First off, as you can tell from her portfolio, she has an incredibly artistic eye. Second, she is very professional; knows when and how to fade into the background and yet capture what seems like every single moment of the wedding. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Celeste is human. By that I mean, there's a certain amount of comfortableness that one hopes for with a photographer. I think more often than not, that feeling is lost almost immediately if not the day of the wedding because the photographer becomes a drill sergeant. With Celeste, we were comfortable through the entire process; so much so that we didn't even have a videographer, but instead relied solely on her to capture the moment. And we couldn't have been happier with our decision.
How's that for marketing! Honestly, she didn't pay me a dime for writing this (although maybe I should look into that); and because of our experience, friends of ours hired her for their wedding with similar results and feelings. I give her only the highest recommendation.
As for suggestions . . . I guess I would say that our initial inclination of doing only black&white was bad. We ended up doing a half and half mix which was perfect. Something I would have done differently but perhaps my wife would disagree with me on, is the number of portraits we took. I swear everyone at the entire wedding wanted a portrait with us! I suppose you might expect this, but I wish we (Britt and I) would have set a limit and ended the portraits a little earlier. Its the candid shots that are the most fun!
If you have any other question, don't hesitate to ask. And
