I don’t want to be just another portrait photographer! I want to meet you and your loved ones and find the secret ways you make each other laugh. I want to capture giggles and play during sunset! I will make sure you look your best, feel confident and have a lot of fun while capturing images you can treasure for years to come.

I want to capture your story

To hear who you are and bring that to life through images that will live on for generations

Whether you are looking for   
headshots, family photos, Senior photos, or a couple's session

"The power of her coming of age, I can really feel it through these photos. Thank you so much for taking your time and such care in capturing Ali. I will treasure these forever."

"These images mean so much to us, Celisia"

-Hannah, Ali's mom (Senior session)

"We wanted a simple family shot as a birthday present for our mom, and Celisia was great!

 She suggested ideas for what to wear based on what we were thinking, gave some great locations in Minneapolis for us to choose from since we wanted something in that area, and was easy and comfortable to work with during the photos. My sister and I are both out of college now, and she had poses and ideas for an adult family of four that were casual and looked great. The pictures turned out wonderfully!"

-Lisson Family

"These are so amazing. I'm legit laughing and crying a little because I love these. You captured the essence of my sweet little girl. You are a miracle worker "

"Are you Kidding me?!?!?! These photos are AMAzing."

-Natasha

"So impressed by her work and her lovely personality:) Highly recommend her skills to anyone who needs headshots or couple shots!"

"Celisia took my headshots and they were EXCELLENT!" 

-Rachel

 The whole shoot felt more like a fun date getting to know a new friend than a staged and rigid photo session. The results were amazing and the process was a ton of fun!

"The comfortable atmosphere Celisia creates during the session produced fantastic photos"

-Parker + Emma

"She delivered absolutely STUNNING pictures, got them to me early, and made sure I had a great time at the session. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for photos!"

"AMAZING photographer!"

-Riley

"So impressed by her work and lovely personality!"


"Celisia was great to work with; she's fun, professional, good at what she does."

"Celisia is funny, hardworking, and incredibly flexible. The pictures she took of me not only looked good, but they were able to capture who I am as a person. Celisia honors the uniqueness of the person she is photographing and uses her tools and techniques to highlight rather than hide the subject's individuality. Celisia will make you feel comfortable and guided to help you showcase your own beauty."

"Celisia made me feel so comfortable during my session! She helped me feel relaxed and have fun. "


"We are speechless!!! I feel like you captured our day beautifully. The pictures feel like us. We can’t thank you enough for taking these beautiful pictures we will always cherish. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a fantastic photographer. Thank you again!!!! "

"We are speechless!!
The pictures feel like us."

-McKena + Dennis

"Not only did our photos turn out AMAZING, our experience with Celisia was wonderful. Celisia has a way of helping you loosen up and be yourself in front of the camera. She tries to get to know you and truly makes the session about you as a couple. The weekend of our wedding, we had many family and friends come ask us where Celisia was from and stated how efficient and friendly she was. Not only that, she is insanely skilled and thoughtful. The day after our wedding, we both agreed that we wish we could get married every weekend... If we did, there’s no doubt that we’d hire Celisia every time. I will always recommend Celisia Stanton Photography!!!"

"I will always recommend
Celisia Stanton Photography!!!"

-Kaylee + Heath

"I met Celisia a few years before I got married and always knew that I wanted to have her as my wedding photographer even though I don't live in Minnesota anymore. Celisia flew out to shoot my wedding in Washington,D.C. and I couldn't be happier with the results of the photos. I was impressed with her flexibility and commitment to providing us with the best experience and the best pictures. For starters it started pouring rain for our family photos and Celisia didn't blink an eye. She grabbed an umbrella and shot away. During the ceremony it seemed like she was everywhere at once. She did a great job at capturing both the candid moments full of emotion along with the more formal shots. Both my husband and I have big families that don't listen very well, yet Celisia was able to bring everyone together in a professional way and gave great cues so everyone knew what to do. I couldn't recommend her more and I can't stop looking at our photos! Thank you Celisia!!!

"I couldn't recommend her more and I can't stop looking at our photos!"

-Anna Maria + Christian

"Celisia was great to work with; she's fun, professional, good at what she does. We enjoyed having her at our wedding and absolutely love our photos. She doesn't over-edit and makes the photos look beautifully natural. Highly recommend!"

"she's fun, professional,
good at what she does."

-Amy + Nick

"Celisia Stanton!!! These pictures are INCREDIBLE, I can't thank you enough! You seriously are so talented, I will be a forever fan of yours!"

"These pictures are INCREDIBLE"

-Jenna + Greg

"The comfortable atmosphere Celisia creates during the session produced fantastic photos of my fiance and I during our engagement session. The whole shoot felt more like a fun date getting to know a new friend than a staged and rigid photo session. She has great ideas about posing and locations, and her pictures were exactly what we were looking for and better than we could have ever hoped! Make sure whatever your occasion, to book Celisia as your photographer!"

"The whole shoot felt more like a fun date getting to know a new friend"

-Emma + Parker

"Ahhh Celisia! These are beautiful! Wow!! I'm so happy you captured our special day! We've been on cloud 9 ever since, these totally made my day! Tears!"

"these totally made my day! Tears!"

-Mackenzie + Anton

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 grad party or holiday card out ASAP, that’s why you’ll receive sneak peaks within one week of your session. You can expect your full gallery within 4 weeks of your session. 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 session. Capturing all the important moments of a session (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 35-50 images per 30 minutes of coverage.

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.

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 and portrait session, 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!! 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.
