  • From the moment we saw Celeste’s work on her site (https://www.celestehernandez.com/), we knew we HAD to have her photograph our wedding. Her quality style photos were just stunning, the natural style and unposed pictures we just fell in love with. From the minute we met Celeste, we felt comfort, transparency and overall joy. She is so friendly and approachable and we knew she would blend into our wedding effortlessly. For months up to the wedding, she stayed in touch and when it came to the day it felt like we’d known her for years! During the day she was like a ninja! You never saw her but she was everywhere! From the complimentary engagement photos, to the day of our wedding, Celeste captured so many lovely moments between people we love so dearly and we will treasure these pictures forever! If anyone is even slightly considering hiring Celeste, don’t think about it just do it!!!! You will NOT regret it!!! I promise. Celeste, we can’t thank you enough for your lovel... Read more

  • When I started planning my wedding, I knew the photographer would be the most important element for me. I wanted to remember the feeling of the event, and I wanted pictures that felt authentic and showed the real me! Celeste was recommended to me by a friend who is also a wedding photographer, and she was a joy to work with. She is so warm and nurturing and worked with our difficult schedule (we live far away from the wedding venue) to arrange an engagement shoot so we could meet in person before our wedding. She made me feel at ease from the moment I met her (I am awkward in front of cameras usually so this was a relief) and on our big day she was there every time we turned around, capturing candid moments. I'm so happy with how my pictures came out and I would recommend Celeste to anyone!

  • Choosing Celeste as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. She is absolutely phenomenal at her job and was perfect for what we were looking for. My wife and I wanted a photographer who would be able to catch candid shots of genuine moments, not just focusing on posed or family photos, and boy did Celeste deliver. We have some of the most amazing shots, not only of us, but of all of our guests having the time of their lives. Celeste is also just a warm, energetic, and special person. We were blown away when we met her for the first time with just how genuinely happy she was to share in our special day. After meeting her we immediately felt like she was already our friend. Celeste made my wife and I feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera where we normally feel awkward. She was able to hide in the background and get some unbelievable candid action shots and she was even able to get our two dogs to behave for the camera. To say we we... Read more

  • Celeste was absolutely incredible! She exceeded all of our expectations. We have only seen a sneak peak of the photos from our day, but we are already so in love with them. Choosing a photographer was one of the most important decisions for my husband and I when planning our wedding — our photos would hold our memories of that day and we wanted someone who could capture us authentically. I searched for months for a photographer whose style and editing I loved - I wanted someone who took more candid photographs of us in genuine moments, whose editing was natural, and who could capture the emotion of our wedding day and the special moments, not only between my new husband and I, but with the people we love most. Celeste was absolutely perfect. I was living in Canada while planning our wedding, so unfortunately we didn’t get to meet Celeste until a couple weeks before the wedding when we did our ‘engagement’ shoot, but when we met up with her, she blew us away. She was... Read more

  • My husband and I really wanted to find a photographer that could capture our personalities and provide us with natural/intimate/beautiful pictures instead of over posed photos we had seen. Thankfully we found Celeste and got everything we wished for and more! From the first email Celeste was warm and inviting and let us ask as many questions as we had. But the ultimate best is getting to take photos with her - we had a blast at our engagement shoot chatting, walking, joking, and strolling in front of the camera. The same carried through to our wedding day - Celeste knew exactly where and when to be and when to provide us with help, but most of all we felt like we had a friend beside us all the time. Celeste is truly incredible and we feel so lucky to have found her to capture our love together. We can't wait for the rest of our photos and hope we have another occasion soon to see her again!

  • CELESTE is an incredible person! She makes you feel so comfortable and lets you be your best self in front of the camera, especially for people who are not used to be in front of the camera. She did our engagement shoot (complimentary) as well where we got to know her better before the wedding. She is so fun to work with and we couldn't have a picked a better photographer. Everyone at the wedding party complimented her and my husband and I were so lucky to have her capture our love.

  • Celeste is amazing and was an absolute pleasure to work with!! From our very first email correspondence, all way through delivering our beautiful photos after our wedding- Celeste proved to be responsive, friendly, and extremely talented. We were on the same page style-wise from the start- we wanted our photographer to capture the natural magic and love of our wedding day, and Celeste did just that! Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out! Not only is Celeste talented and professional, but by the time our wedding day rolled around, she felt like an old friend! She seamlessly fit right in with our guests and was so much fun to work with. She truly captured the magic of our day, and we will remember that forever. Highly highly recommend!!

  • My husband and I hate being in front of the camera and Celeste made us feel nothing but comfortable. She captured so many amazing photos giving us wonderful memories from our special day. Our fathers and siblings have been raving over the photos and calling out how great she was. My husband and I both work full-time in the photo industry so we are very opinionated about photography and we both agree that Celeste was nothing but Wonderful to work with.

  • Hiring Celeste to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made during our entire wedding planning. We found her on Wedding Wire and she had spectacular reviews, so we set up an introductory call which went very well so we knew we had to hire her. From the very beginning, Celeste showed us how much passion she has for her job and how much she cared about providing the perfect photos. We started out with an engagement shoot and Celeste came to our apartment and really made us feel comfortable during the entire process. The photos were spectacular! We knew we were in good hands from that moment on. And on our wedding day, Celeste did not disappoint. She did a fantastic job getting all of the shots we requested. She’s extremely organized and professional. Celeste is not only a supremely talented photographer but she’s an amazing person. She has a cheerful, energetic personality that really makes taking photos feel fun but at the same time relaxing. She knows how to get ... Read more

  • I think I've told her she is amazing over ten times. Our experience with Celeste was excellent! She made our elopement THAT much more special. My husband and I are kind of awkward in pictures, and she noticed that right away and was able to direct us while also getting those awesome candids we love. She made us feel very comfortable and was always very professional. The pictures are stunning and more beautiful than I ever could have imagined they'd be! 100% would recommend her. We will definitely be coming back for anniversary or family shoots when we are in NYC :) Thank you Celeste!

  • From the groom: I never realized just how challenging and how important it is to pick the right photographer for a wedding. After all, after the day happens, the real tangible things that you are left with are pictures. Let me tell you, Celeste takes beautiful natural pictures. In this day and age where everyone with a smart phone and a social media account think they're a photographer, you put their pictures next to Celeste, and you can distinctly see why Celeste is a professional and everyone else does instagram for a hobby. Starting at $3000, I think she's well worth the price. She was the 2nd most expensive thing for our wedding (the 1st of course being the venue), and I think that we were right to prioritize photography. I do not regret it. From the Bride: I was so nervous because i am a bit camera shy but Celeste made me feel beautiful and natural. The shots were not only amazing but completely organic. She had such an amazing personality too and captured the details of... Read more

  • Thank you Celeste for capturing our special day! I absolutely loved working with Celeste. She is sweet and professional and made the contact process easy and comfortable since day one. Our wedding was an elopement and we had 9 family members with us. Celeste made everyone feel comfortable and at ease when it was time for pictures. She did a great job capturing candids throughout the elopement ceremony. My husband and I had no idea about where to take our photos after the wedding ceremony, and Celeste was great about providing us with location options throughout the city, all of them which were Amazing! She recently sent us a sample of our shots and we are in love! We can’t wait to see all the pictures! Celeste has an amazing eye for capturing the beauty around a couple but at the same time is also great about capturing the love between them. I highly recommend Celeste for your engagement, elopement, wedding, etc. You will not be disappointed!

  • We eloped in New York from the UK, and Celeste was our amazing wedding photographer! I initially found her work from instagram, and was blown away with the natural, "in the moment" photos displayed. Celeste was so quick to respond to our email queries and provided great advice on locations for pictures in New York City, how the day would run and guided us through the actual day once the nerves and emotions kicked in! On the day itself I was disheartened that it was raining constantly, but Celeste was our cheerleader and was continually raising our spirits- reflected in the great pictures she took. Saying goodbye to her at the end of the day felt like we were saying goodbye to an old friend. We are so happy that we chose Celeste to be our wedding photographer!

  • I honestly don’t know how to encapsulate just how perfect Celeste made our day. From the very beginning, when I was emailing in NC and she was in NY, I felt like we were friends. She allowed me to share my whole vision and helped me craft it with insightful questions and knowledgeable advice about the area and what would be best for our photos. By the time our wedding finally arrived I was as excited to meet her as I was for the photos! She helped guide us through our City’s clerks office wedding and ensured that our our photos felt like a fun and organic part of the day. And most importantly our photos were AMAZING. So many people have shared how much they enjoyed viewing them and how expertly Celeste captured the emotion and joy of the day.

  • From the very beginning Celeste was attentive, kind and so creative. Previous to this I had a really negative experience with another photographer so I was a little nervous coming into the elopement session with Celeste, but she calmed my nerves and gave me so much peace. I will recommend her to every single person I know.
