About Celeste

I am the owner of Celestial Sights Photography.  I am a wife.  A mother.  A photographer.  

My photography journey began 20 years ago when my dad, noticing my interest in his photography, bought me my first manual film camera. After his sweet instruction and some fabulous daddy-daughter time, I became the official documenter of every family event. As an introvert, I was always super happy behind the lens, searching for beautiful light and the opportunity to capture a poignant, emotive moment when no one was looking. Fast-forward 13 years to my sister-in-law’s wedding planning. She wanted a photographer and I wanted a new camera: clearly a match made in heaven! After shooting her wedding and having an AMAZING time, I knew I wanted to be doing photography, and Celestial Sights was born!  After two years of running Celestial Sights while also teaching high school English, I left teaching to focus on my photography and my family.

Now, I am incredibly blessed to be at home with my three children while having plenty of time to develop my passion for photography. During an average year, I photograph 12-15 weddings and approximately 30 portrait sessions. I love building relationships with my clients and having time to invest in my family relationships as well. 

Having this time to get to know my clients helps ensure that my photographs are authentic to each couple and/or family. I want all of my clients to feel like they are getting a friend in their photographer. I find that for weddings as well as portrait sessions, the more comfortable my clients are with me, the more fun we have and the more bright and joyful their photos are. I know how priceless those moments in in your life are, and I’d love to have the honor of photographing you and your loved ones!
