  • Photography was one of the first vendors we booked and after speaking with Celia it was a no-brainer that we wanted her for our special day. From our engagement shoot, to creating our timeline, to the big day everything was such a breeze! Celia was always professional, organized, timely, and most importantly fun! The timeline Celia made for us was amazing and such a huge help for both other vendors and ourselves. The day of, Celia and Charles made everything so perfect- we never felt rushed and we were able to get all the amazing shots we wanted! Our families, friends, and other vendors all commented how wonderful Celia and Charles were- both their kindness and professionalism shines through! Our pictures turned out even better than we could have imagined! Every single picture is beautiful and it was so hard to pick our favorites to hang up around our house. Celia was SO FAST getting our photos back to us which we were so thankful for! You can't beat getting sneak peeks in under 24 h... Read more

    Ahhh, Kaitlyn! Your wedding day was an absolute wonder to capture -- from the details to the venue to your friends and fam -- and especially you and Phil! And these kind words warm my heart so much. Thank you both so very much for writing this and having us be part of your day! -Celia

  • Look no further for your wedding photographer! Celia went above and beyond my expectations of a photographer, and I am so so happy I chose her to help capture our big day. First and foremost, she is very on top of communication. She is also so organized.. and as a bride I really appreciated that. She goes to great lengths to make sure she gets to know you and your fiance, understand your overall theme, help with establishing a timeline, and just set your mind at ease for the big day. The weeks leading up to the wedding we spent a great deal of time making sure the timeline worked for everyone, and when the day arrived, I wasn't as worried about rushing from place to place. Her and her second photographer, Charles, are also just genuine and warm people. They both set everyone in my wedding party at ease and had us laughing the entire day. Celia was easily able to manage a large group of people and all of my friends and family couldn't stop singing their praises about how well she handl... Read more

  • Exactly one year ago, we celebrated our big day and we started off our one year anniversary looking through our wedding album. We're eternally grateful that we chose Celia to capture some of our most special and intimate moments from that day. From our engagement shoot to out cake cutting, Celia and her husband took quality photos and paid attention to every single detail (background elements, lighting, etc.) to make our photos look awesome! Celia is a meticulous planner and will work tirelessly from the moment you choose her to make sure you get the photos you want for your big day. More importantly, Celia has a great, positive attitude and helps you get through photos with ease!

  • Celia and her husband played such a pivotal role in making our wedding day the best day ever. From the moment we connected with her, I knew she and her husband Charles, were the perfect photographers for us. Celia is genuine, kind, patient, and focused; her husband perfectly compliments her as well. Taking advice from her own wedding, she immediately gave us a sense of calmness among the hectic planning that weddings go through. Without hesitation, Celia worked with us to fit everything we needed into our budget, and was so involved in making sure our timeline was perfectly laid out to capture everything we desired. When our big day arrived, we felt so prepared knowing we had Celia to help us stay on track. She and Charles accommodated every unexpected detail we ran into with true grace, and helped keep us calm through the entire day. Celia has the perfect airy feel in her photography style that gave us a fairytale view into our wedding day, and we cannot stop looking at our pictu... Read more

  • Celia reminds us that wedding photography is about documenting a day that will be in your family archives - and she does it beautifully. The first thing you notice about her photos are the artistic color and light, and then after planning and working with Celia, you are so thankful for her project management/communication skills to keep timelines rolling and photo lists checked. She (and Charles!) are everything you need in a wedding photographer - visionary, professional, and fun to hang out with! Pary and I are so thankful to have gotten to know Celia and Charles in this way and look forward to finding another reason to hangout - with or without cameras :)

    Thank you so much, Alysea (and Pary!). Your day was amazing to capture, and I loved creating beautiful images for the two of you and your friends and family! I agree 1,000% on finding another reason to hang out! Warmly and with MUCH appreciation, -Celia

  • From the moment I saw Celia's pictures online, I knew she was the photographer for us! Hiring Celia as our wedding photographer was the easiest decision we made during the wedding planning process. From the first video chat to say hi, Celia was genuine, engaging and truly interested in learning about my husband and me, and which moments of the day were important to both of us to have her capture. This thoughtfulness and caring carried on throughout the whole process and truly shone through in her pictures. Celia was responsive and prompt with e mails, checking in regularly to make sure everything was on track and to answer any questions I had. She also threw in little surprises along the way which just emphasized her thoughtfulness. We were lucky enough to have an engagement session with Celia prior to the big day, which was invaluable. The opportunity to get to know each other and learn some classic poses beforehand, meant that on our wedding day there were none of those 'f... Read more

    Oh my gosh, Alison! Thank you for your moving words and kind comments -- we simply are over the moon with how happy you are and how wonderful your day and images are. Thank YOU both for being so generous with your feedback, time, and sharing your oh-so-happy day with us! Your wedding was a true delight and, yes, as the Scottish phrase goes, a "pure barry" indeed! With much gratitude and appreciation, -Celia

  • Celia is amazing! She is thorough, honest, and so kind. She is very straightforward in what will work or what won't work. She is extremely organized, as well. I felt like finding a photographer was so difficult. Once I found Celia, everything was a breeze. She also kept me on track with my timeline, responded to all emails, and was very professional. On a personal level, Celia is so warm. She was wonderful to get to know over the past year. Her husband Charles is also great! She was very laid back and approachable on the day of the wedding. It made others relax as well. I will recommend Celia to everyone I know who is getting married!

  • Celia and her husband were a dream to work with! Starting from the beginning, Celia was professional, quick to respond to each and every email, and flexible about locations. She even scouted out our venue to plan for the correct lighting. She is warm, relaxing, silly, and ready to get every shot! Celia is generous and makes the bride feel special. A wonderful human, and photographer!

  • Oh Celia, and Charles- where do I begin?! Before starting my review, I want everyone to know my fiance and I met with three photographers before meeting Celia. We were having difficulty finding the right person who wasn't there to sell us on the latest and greatest. We wanted a photographer who we could trust to be our right hand and have our day at their best interest- ENTER Celia. I found Celia while scrolling through Instagram and reached out. From day one, she was incredible. Celia is the perfect amount of "type A" and "just go with it." She is down to earth, personable, kind, focused and honest- a true gem. Her husband, Charles, shoots with her. Their relationship is encouraging to all getting married. They are supportive of one another and make the perfect team. I booked Celia after our first conversation and she began planning with me the next day. She coordinated the best engagement shoot in our favorite beach town, and incorporated events close to our hearts. Celia kept me in ... Read more

  • 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. As someone who didn't have a lot of specific instructions, it was invaluable that Celia understood me. Her and second shooter and husband Charles have a knack for getting the best pictures quickly, which is especially important when you're working with families as crazy as mine and my husbands. 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. Her and Charles were everywhere, photographing 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 combina... Read more

  • Working with Celia was an absolutely wonderful experience through every step of our wedding! She is personable and fun, but always professional. She made us feel completely comfortable during our engagement and wedding shoots and the photos were more stunning than I could have ever imagined! Celia also captured so many great candids through out our wedding, as well as beautiful detail of the decor. I am so happy we found Celia as she greatly contributed to making our wedding day so special!

  • Celia (and her second shooter/husband Charles) shot our engagement pictures, and we loved the photos/experience so much we immediately asked to book her for our wedding. They are some of the kindest people I have known, and make you feel like friends immediately. Throughout the entire planning process, Celia made us feel like she was as excited about our big day as we were, with her constant communication, or a kind note and thoughtful gift. She provided us with (so many) bright, light-filled photos that we are so happy with, and that captured the beauty of our wedding day perfectly. She is organized, professional, proactive, polite, and fun. We truly enjoyed the quality of the photos we received, as well as going through this experience together - I highly recommend Celia (and Charles)!

  • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Celia for a one year anniversary shoot at our home and around Old City, Philadelphia. From the second we started working with Celia, she made made sure we were extremely comfortable with every step of the process. She gave us fun ideas about how to incorporate memories from our wedding day to make the shoot really special. Celia made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera. She even brought us an anniversary gift! Celia is an extremely talented photographer and kind person! I'm so glad we worked with her on these anniversary photos that we'll cherish forever.
