AUTHENTIC IMAGERY FOR REAL PEOPLE IN THEIR MOST POWERFUL MOMENTS.
Celeste had picked out some super awesome spots that allowed our shoot to flow organically. She helped me capture a casual look to represent my bubbly personality, then flipped over to a completely glammed out look where I could be ‘extra’. It was an absolutely amazing experience. Celeste made me so comfortable and was super empowering! Aside from the fact that she is super talented, she has the perfect personality to make you feel good in front of a camera. I thought I would feel awkward, but the whole time Celeste made me feel so comfortable! 100/10 recommend!
I have had photos professionally done before and none came even close to my experience with Celeste! She made both me and my boyfriend feel like a million dollars and all of the photos took me by surprise as they were stunning. (I have never said that about photos of us/me)! I have some insecurities that felt non-existent while working with Celeste! She is a wonderful women and helped me before, during and after the shoot! Something so stressful to me, like taking photos and looking good for the camera, felt so effortless with her. I would NEVER choose anyone else apart from Celeste to take photos of me ever!!! She is a photographer sent from heaven above!
Working with Celeste was an absolute joy. Neither my girlfriend nor I had done a professional photoshoot before, and we anxiously discussed what it might be like on the way there. We both were so happy, and relieved when we met Celeste. She greeted us with a warmth and kindness that made being in front of the camera so much easier. We continued talking the whole time, and left the session feeling like we'd made a friend. If you're looking for someone that will capture your essence, as well as your real laughs and smiles, I 100% recommend Celeste Burns Photography. I left the experience with a new friend, a better appreciation of the places in my city, and beautiful evidence of my relationship. I would be thrilled to work with Celeste again in the future, and I urge others to do the same.
My name is Celeste Burns and I’m so glad you’re here! I am a Jacksonville native and I have had a passion for photography since I discovered it at the age of 12. Since then, I have been determined to soak up all the knowledge I can while developing my personal flare. I attended Parsons School of Design for two years before deciding that institutionalized art school was not my thing. I found my peers to be very concerned with the superficial (trends, fame) and that is not at ALL my style. My photography focuses on love and passion, emotion and sunlight. So why do I love my job SO MUCH? It's simple. I love meeting people and making them feel beautiful. I love being present for that moment when it seems like everyone in the world is focused on love at the same exact time. I love capturing the harmony between two people and how every single connection is different and unique. Most of all, I love providing a glimpse into every way love exists because ALL love is beautiful. The camera is an extension of the heart, when used to the fullest extent. I strive for this depth every time I pick up my camera.
