"We can't recommend Célestine enough - we had such a wonderful experience with her for our winter wedding in Canmore this year.
Her communication style is prompt, clear and she was so easy to coordinate with during the planning process - a few quick meetings and she instantly felt like a friend. She was genuinely invested in our experience and easily put together a package that worked for us.
On our wedding day, Célestine arrived early, just as we were re locating some of the bridesmaids to a different cabin, and she set down her bag and jumped right in- helping carry suitcases next door. Her work speaks for itself but that is just a small example of how, in addition to her talent, she is also a genuinely lovely person. Her presence was the perfect balance of helpful, efficient, and non invasive. Shooting with her was relaxed and easy ... even in -18C and in front of a camera, we both felt at ease.
Célestine captured our day perfectly- we're thrilled with the photos. Her eye and editing choices were on point. She didn't miss a single detail – viewing our photos is just like reliving the day all over again. We are definitely grateful that she was recommended to us, and that we were able to have her involved in our day.
There are many talented photographers in this industry, and we were able to meet with a handful of photographers throughout our planning process, but we are both so grateful that we went with Célestine. To be honest I’m not sure we would have been able to say all of these same things about our experience with someone else. The photo quality is important, and Célestine’s talent is clear in her work, but as a photographer her presence, personality and genuine nature are an important element to what makes her stand out. Schedule a time to meet with her and see for yourself."

Chelsea - "Célestine photographed our wedding back in July, and did an incredible job (in really difficult lighting as well!). We chose her because she was excellent at landscape and people, and we couldn't have been more happy with the result. Incredible shots of the location, and we now have family photos that we'll treasure for a very long time, as well as the perfect candid shots of our guests to remind us of the day. She was professional (and lovely) to talk with up to the date, and even stayed later than we had asked to capture some shots in twilight. I only wish we had more time to hang out with her during and after the wedding :) If anyone needs a photographer in the Canmore area, I can't recommend her enough. She produces beautiful work and is clearly invested in capturing the most heartfelt moments of the day. Thanks again Célestine, from both of us!"
Michael - "Celestine was the perfect choice to photograph our wedding. Not only was she a pleasure to be around, but she got excellent results in difficult lighting conditions (our wedding took place in the bright midday sun with a lot of contrasty-shadows). Our family, our friends, and my wife and I all very much enjoyed the photographs, and I'll definitely book Celestine as the photographer to my second wedding. Couldn't recommend highly enough."

"We cannot speak highly enough about Célestine. She photographed our wedding in August and it was absolutely perfect. She made the entire day so easy and managed to capture every moment! Our guests loved her as much as we did! The day would not have been as special without her."

"Celestine did our engagement photos and our wedding photos. The one thing about our wedding that I really did vast research on was photography. After browsing through many different sites and recommendations we booked Celestine. Celestine's style and talent when it comes to photography is captivating. Her photos really do capture the true raw emotion in those beautiful candid life moments. Celestine is so great to work with, from the day we met her we knew we made the right choice, she has a contagious bubbly personality behind the lens that shines through showing her passion for photography. She went the extra mile when it came to our engagement photos -- out in Peyto Lake in the winter, hiking her camera gear up the mountain side with a smile on her face. During our wedding photo session she turned the chilly hours we spent outside into fun with our wedding party -- everyone was laughing and smiling. I highly recommend Celestine Aerden Photography. Life is too short not to capture the amazing moments in your life with a great photographer :)"

"My wife and I worked with Celestine for our fall wedding as we were very impressed by her photos and love for capturing nature. She was very prompt and professional when we had to meet or discuss details via email. She is very easy to talk to and willing to do all she could to make the day special. When the big day came everything went according to plan and we couldn't be happier with the results. Would definitely recommend working with this wonderful professional photographer."

"My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Celestine to shoot our Christmas/pregnancy announcement photographs. Celestine is a very talented individual who is patient, makes you (as the client) feel incredibly comfortable, and is full of creative ideas. Our photos came out better than I could have imagined! Celestine is professional, dependable, and insanely skilled. It is very clear that photography is her passion. I am hopeful that we will one day get the opportunity to shoot with her again!"
