  • We had originally booked her to shoot our court house elopement but later changed to a live video zoom ceremony as we got closer to our wedding date. Celeste was supportive and reassuring throughout the whole planning process. The day of the ceremony Celeste made our tiny NY apt look just as beautiful as any wedding venue backdrop. Her photography helped make our unconventional day all the more special and memorable, as we celebrated with our family and friends from afar. I would highly recommend Celeste for any small court house ceremony or virtual at home ceremony.

  • I loved Celeste's style for shooting our engagement photos in the city. She has an amazing energy both in our email exchanges and in real life, which really helped us while we were doing our shoot. She's also super responsive and helped us make some more quick edits after sharing the final set with us. I would highly recommend her to others!

  • 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

  • We loved every second of our wedding day with Celeste. She was so friendly and genuinely happy for us, even though we had never met before! We aren’t from the U.S but wanted a City Hall wedding. Celeste was our witness and knew everything about the City Hall process and so getting married ran very smoothly. She knew exactly where to take us in our chosen location afterwards to get the type of shots we asked for. She was completely non intrusive, letting us enjoy the moment, while capturing it perfectly. We could not be happier with the photos. I would 100% recommend her!

  • Celeste was recommended by a coworker after our first photographer was a no-go. She was understanding of our issues with the first photographer (lack of communication, poor response time, not terribly professional) and made sure that all of our anxieties were put to rest. At every step, she was prompt, knowledgable, professional, and incredibly warm and friendly! She put us at ease immediately and made sure we knew what the timeline was. On top of everything, when my wedding week arrived with forecasts of solid rain, she said "don't worry, I'll take care of it — it'll be sunny" and wouldn't you know it, we had a 70º day with sun in the middle of January. Even if she hadn't somehow worked actual magic, her calm and cheer helped me calm down and focus more on getting excited. I sincerely can't recommend her enough. She will put a smile on your face and deliver truly beautiful photographs.

  • 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

  • We absolutely loved working with Celeste. We had her shoot both our Chinese tea ceremony, engagement photos and wedding photos, and sending that first email to her was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. She always responded promptly to our questions and concerns. During our engagement session, we got to know her and understand her style - she immediately made us comfortable and it shows in the photos. During our wedding day, we worked with her and her assistant Brittany. They were the best team! They were able to control my super large and loud family and got the most incredible photos. Celeste has this amazing calming presence that is able to control a room, which is just what we needed on our day. She was able to turn around our sneak peek from our wedding in 2 days. 2 DAYS. Unheard of! We were able to get a taste of our wedding when we went on our honeymoon. We got our entire album a month later. I don't know anyone who got their photos that quick. Don't talk to a...

  • I'm so so glad we chose Celeste as our wedding photographer! My fiancé and I were planning an NYC wedding from another state without professional help. We didn't get to met Celeste before the wedding, so it was a bit of a risk. She made the process so seamless and got all the shots we wanted, even though we were in a time crunch. She even made my fiancé feel comfortable, and he HATES having his picture taken. Everyone (friends, aunts, parents, MY FIANCE) raved about how Celeste was able to wrangle the group while also being laid back. They still mention it several months later. And when we got our pics back they were even more blown away! We made photo albums for our parents and it was so easy because all of the photos go so well together. The coloring and editing is top notch, and you can tell she individually edited each picture. People tell us they're magazine worthy (and we're not models!). We only had Celeste for 3 hours and we ended up with so many pictures to choose from. Also... Read more

  • Celeste is the best! Our photos came out amazing! So much so that after we posted a few, my friends who were engaged immediately reached out for her contact info so they could hire her for their own wedding! She made the planning process so easy and stress-free. She was always quick to respond to our many questions and prior to the wedding, Celeste made a schedule for our first look photos and a list of all of the pictures that were important to us to have on our day. She made sure she got every single one! Not only was Celeste very thorough and took amazing photos, but she was also a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process! She is the sweetest and you will not regret hiring her!

  • 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!!
