"From the moment I saw Celia's photos, I knew she was the photographer for us! Hiring Celia was the easiest decision we made during the wedding planning process. I have never felt so relaxed getting my picture taken! And the pictures themselves. Oh, the pictures! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and Celia is a true storyteller. Words don't even begin to describe the feeling of reliving your most special day through a fresh perspective and the most beautiful of pictures. Seeing your favorite people captured in memorable moments forever is just breathtaking. The feelings of pure love and friendship that resonated from our guests during our first dance that could be felt though the pictures. We laughed, cried and smiled our way though them all. What a truly incredible gift Celia gave to us with her pictures. We are extremely thankful and honored to have had the opportunity to work with Celia. Any couple that has the chance to work with Celia would be very lucky indeed."
"From the moment I met Celia to talk about the possibility of her shooting my wedding I felt like she really listened to what I wanted and picked up on my vision right away. Celia gives perfect instructions and has an amazing eye for details. Her style and ability to capture candid and natural moments provide effortless and beautiful photos for every important moment, planned and unplanned. I can’t say enough great things about them and the job they did for our wedding and engagement shoot. The wedding timeline Celia and I worked on together provided me with a plan for my entire wedding. Her work is flawless, natural, stunning, fun and a perfect combination of edited and candid."
"Celia was an absolute joy to work with! I needed branding photos taken for my new online business and after one look at her work, I new I had to work with her. She made the process so seamless, especially since it was my first time getting photos taken, and I didn't have to think about a thing. She coached me on posing and even gave me a few tips on taking my own photos. The photos turned out amazing and I can't wait to use them on my website and social media! HIGHLY recommend Celia...you won't be disappointed!"
"If you're in Philly and looking for a photographer, LOOK NO FURTHER! Celia is absolutely wonderful to work with. Celia obviously has an innate talent and eye for photography. But what's even more amazing is her ability to put you at ease during the shoot. I'm not exactly the most photogenic person in the world, but Celia made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Celia also gave me lots of great tips... I've worked with other photographers before, and they didn't give that level of detail. Celia produced the most STUNNING photographs. Somehow, she perfectly captured me in the most authentic way and she presented my brand exactly as I wanted it to appear. I couldn't recommend Celia more no matter what type of business you have."
the world is looking for collaborators, dreamers, rebels, doers, organizers, creatives, leaders, helpers, and good, kind humans. and these people are my favorite people to work with and create images for.
if an organic and artistic process to develop refined images with a strong story sounds good to you, then you're in the right place. and if you also prefer organized preparation that involves a strong vision and thoughtful communication, then you're in the right place.
being flexible with life, self-aware and honest, and allowing the creative process to breath and grow is important to me because i've learned that storytelling thrives with these attributes. if this resonates with you, then let's chat.
