Hi, I’m Celeste, a local photographer who captures love in every sense of the word. Let’s go on an adventure together, find places off the beaten track, and create unforgettable memories and incredible photos. We’ll revel in organic, candid, in-between moments, feel the sun on our backs or the rain on our faces.
As a child I went through rolls of film at an alarming pace, at university I spent hours upon hours in the darkroom. As a professional photographer I’m pretty thankful for digital cameras. My last client received 559 photos in their album. If I was working in film I’d be crying right now.
I started my career primarily as a wedding photographer and have since spread my wings. When photographing a wedding there’s no control. You can’t control the lighting, the location or the interactions, you’re along for a wild, beautiful ride and it’s your duty to capture it all as honestly and unobtrusively as possible. I now apply this philosophy to all my shoots. My goal for every photo shoot is for everyone to enjoy themselves. I play games with the children (I’ve been known to turn little girls into fairies in post production for a few minutes of co-operation!) and encourage parents to relax or join in.
As for brides, just know that I’m the most reliable person you’ll ever meet and my time keeping is impeccable.
Have a look at the video showreel of a recent shoot.
