Hey friend!

i'm celestina.

I'm first and foremost a mother and wife. I have an amazing  husband who is my biggest supporter and fan, and my four darling children. We have three boys and our newest addition is a little lady (finally!!).

One thing you really need to know about me is that I absolutely do love what I do, and I HAVE FUN with it. I get excited, I squeal, and I jump up and down during portraits!   My job isn't just my job, it's my passion. I can't imagine myself doing anything else in this world other than capturing raw emotion and true love!

Photos you've got to see...

One of the best moments I ever witness is that amazing first look. The moment when the bride or groom sees their partner is always a tear jerker, and one of the most emotional, meaningful minutes of the day. For just a moment, the world sort of stops. I love it! Here are some tips for a truly amazing first look, so take note, brides and grooms.

The Blue Dress Barn recently included a new ceremony site, and wanted to do a session to show how beautiful it is! I could just imagine these many benches filled with loved ones celebrating a wedding day with a happy couple, and know this new ceremony spot will hold many memories to come.
