I don’t want to be just another wedding vendor! I want to sit down for coffee and hear how you met your best friend. I want to capture giggles and snuggles during sunset at your engagement session and I want to be the personal attendant with a camera on your wedding day! Making sure you look your best, laughing with your family, and running with you in the sunlight!

I want the chance to capture your story

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

FOR COUPLES WHO LOVE
DEEP BELLY LAUGHS, SPONTANEOUS ADVENTURES, AND SNUGGLING ON THE COUCH FOR COZY NIGHTS IN

"we immediately clicked after meeting up with her!"

"Celisia was such a joy to have as our photographer! We were worried that it might be awkward having someone take pictures of us, but we immediately clicked after meeting up with her! Two things we really enjoyed about Celisia was that we were able to play some of our favorite upbeat music, which kept us moving and made us feel more like we were at a friend’s house than in front of a camera. She had really good ideas for poses that looked natural and intimate. We were super impressed by how gorgeous the pictures were and how quickly she sent them to us. It was so hard to choose a couple of pictures from the many that we got back to share with our friends!! We would definitely recommend her and would love to use her again in the future!"

-Ryan + Sander

"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

“We hit it off right away and I knew during our conversation that she would be our dream photographer. She is easy going, extremely prompt, and so talented!

When we met for our engagement photos, we were immediately at ease in front of the camera. She made it so much fun! When we received our engagement photos, I was in tears because she captured the two of us so well.

What can I say about our wedding pictures? Celisia is so organized! She had us fill out a questionnaire to describe details that were important to us, along with a photo shot list. It made wrangling family after the ceremony a complete breeze!

It's been a few weeks since we received our wedding pictures and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at them. They are absolutely gorgeous and I love how natural they are! Celisia captured every amazing moment of our most perfect day.

Because we loved working with her, we set up a session with us and our dogs. Minus one of the dogs barking the first 10 minutes, she captured so many beautiful moments.

I am beyond happy with everything she has done for us and highly recommend working with her. We truly hope she continues to capture our memories for a long time to come."

“From the first phone call we had talking about our wedding, Celisia was amazing!"

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.

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!! 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.
