Frequently asked questions

WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
I am based out of Cochrane, Alberta, Canada; but I'm originally from Belgium and I love to travel.

DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS?
My primary focus is intimate weddings and outdoor elopements. However, I also love photographing lifestyle and portrait sessions. Feel free to send me an email and we'll find a time that fits for us both.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes!!! I love traveling, my passport is at the ready and I'm always up for an adventure! I am thrilled to travel anywhere and everywhere, the world is a beautiful place and nowhere is too far.

DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND SHOOTER?
I have a network of talented photographers that I occasionally work with! Please talk to me about adding a second shooter to your package.

SHOULD I PROVIDE DINNER OR LUNCH FOR YOU AT MY RECEPTION?
As I will be by your side for the better part of the day, I would appreciate to be included in any meal arrangements.  It is also best to designate a spot for me close to the head table in amongst the guests so I can be ready to jump up and capture an unexpected moment.  If this is not possible however, being kept as close to the “action” as possible is always appreciated.

HOW MANY WEDDING PHOTOS WILL WE GET?
It depends on the size and length of a wedding, you get to keep all of the very best photos from the day. For a full day of coverage you can expect to get between 400-700 edited, high resolution photos. (This may vary)

DO WE RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES AND A PRINT RELEASE?
Yes, you will receive high and low resolution images via USB or download. You will have full printing and sharing rights, you just can't sell them for commercial gain.

WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE OUR PHOTOS?
I usually post sneak peaks on my Instagram and/or Facebook shortly after the event, so keep an eye out! You will receive your final photos 8-10 weeks following your wedding, depending on whether you get married in peak wedding season or not.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Please fill out the form on my contact page and give me some details about your wedding day. Or you can simply send me an email at celestineaerden@gmail.com.
To secure a date, I will require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer.

Can't wait to hear from you!
