Oh my gosh, the thought of needing to wait forever to see your photos can be a total bummer, right?! Well don’t you worry! I’m sooo pumped for you to see your images, and I know you probably need to get that save the date or holiday card out ASAP, that’s why you’ll receive sneak peaks one week after your wedding day and/or engagement session. You can expect your full wedding gallery within 6 weeks of the big day. I deliver all my images via an online gallery system. When the photos are ready, I’ll email you the link and you’ll be able to download everything straight to your computer, no tricky flash drives to keep track of here!
All the good ones! When you work with me, you won’t have to worry that I might delete important photos, the only images I won’t deliver are duplicates or ones that don’t turn out, I pinky promise! The exact number of images will vary depending on the specifics of your day. Capturing all the important moments of a wedding (large and small) is my biggest priority and I do my best work when I’m able to go with the flow rather than shooting just to get to a specific image count. So, while I don’t guarantee a specific number of photos, you can typically expect around 70-100 images per hour.
I’m based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but I am always excited and ready to pack my bags! I’ve been fortunate enough to shoot all over the country and have become quite the expert traveler. If you need help finding an epic location, I’m your girl!
Um, heck yes! Just let me know when you reach out!
I do not release RAW or unedited images. The final photos I deliver to you will be consistent with the rest of my work and I am unable to release an incomplete product. I promise I will only delete the blurry, unusable, or duplicated images. Everything else is yours, and will be delivered in a beautifully edited final gallery.
In all my experience of shooting weddings this has never happened and I hope it never will! In the event of a major emergency such as hospitalization or death, I will have another highly skilled photographer who you approve of and love, come in my place. I would still edit all of the images in my style.
Every wedding is different and therefore every package looks different. I want to be sure that the package you choose fits your exact needs and so after you inquire, I’ll take some time to hear about your plans and then craft a few different custom package options just for you! That said full day wedding packages (which include an engagement session) start at $4,000, associate weddings start at $2,800, and elopement packages start at $2,500.
Sometimes being in front of the camera can be intimidating, and sometimes people just don’t like having their photo taken. Trust me, I totally get it!! My job is to make sure you’re super comfortable and enjoying our time together, and I take that responsibility super seriously. After photographing many weddings, I’ve worked with people whose comfort in front of the camera spans literally every point on the spectrum and I consider myself an expert in helping people feel like themselves in front of my lens. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve and I can confidently promise that you and your honey will have a blast. But don’t just take my word for it! Click here to see what one previous client had to say
“Celisia took our engagement and wedding photos! She suggested we do an engagement session to help us get comfortable in front of the camera and also her presence. We were nervous, but she made the session super fun and easy! She gave us enough direction to keep the session moving, but never forced anything that made us feel unlike ourselves. She also brought a portable speaker and played music in the background, which helped us relax. A few days later, we got a ton of sneak peak photos and they are GORGEOUS. I’ve looked at them every day since she shared them. We can’t thank Celisia enough!”
Yes!! I love creating custom timelines for wedding days to take some wedding planning stress off your shoulders. After photographing many weddings, I know the exact amount of time you’ll need to schedule for key events to make sure everything goes smoothly. After you book, we’ll work together to nail down a timeline that you love and feel confident in! Can’t wait to start prepping??

Yes!! If you’re interested in ordering professional prints you can do that right inside your digital gallery. The process is super simple and your images will be delivered directly to your doorstep! The prices are genuinely affordable and you’ll have the peace of mind that your prints will have perfect color. Downloading and printing elsewhere may result in incorrect skin tones, but you are more than welcome to do so! Just keep in mind that at retail labs the machines aren’t calibrated and the technicians aren’t trained to make consistent professional prints with correct color, so you might see anywhere from a slight to drastic quality difference between the images you see on your screen and the prints you receive.
I can definitely use your Pinterest board as inspiration for what we will create for your wedding or shoot! That said, I cannot legally re-create someone else’s work. I will gladly keep your pins in mind as I create images that are unique to your day! The truth is, I actually shoot better images when I get to work creatively rather than copying another photographer’s work.
What a great question!! Your photos are the only thing you have left after the day, so this is a super valid thing to consider!! The good news is that I will have backup equipment for everything I use on the day, from my camera itself to batteries and memory cards, I got ya covered!!
