Celeste & dan
a love story documenting other love stories.
You know that feeling of wanting something so bad, but being told it's impossible? We never imagined our lives would be the way they are today. We both went to post-secondary school to pursue normal 9-5 corporate jobs. Celeste became a Registered Nurse in the Operating room, and Dan worked with renewable energy. These jobs seemed to fit our values of helping others and our planet. But one day, something changed.
We knew we wanted each other, but a different lifestyle. We started meditating, working on our collective dream together, and really defining what we wanted our life to look like. We put together our favorite things: nature, exploring, creating photos and videos, and of course, love. Voila! Our entrepreneur venture together started.

Most of all we LOVE mother nature and all of its beauty. It is such an honor to document love stories with her always in the background. We also must respect her, and follow Leave No Trace guidelines. Above all, we are not here to damage nature, but to experience it and take care of it.
You deserve so much more than just a wedding - you deserve an experience. This is what we prioritize. You have a once-in-a-lifetime badass experience. In other words, your wedding day should be your greatest adventure yet.
We approach each and every elopement experience with a blank slate and fresh set of eyes. There is no "one size fits all" or cookie-cutter approach here. We will be always be transparent, and provide a unique experience tailored just for you.

A few years back, I convinced my husband to come on this crazy journey with me. Believe it or not, HE was always the documenter of our trips and was the one to get me to pursue my dreams of photography. Now we travel the world together documenting genuine + nature loving couples just like us!
Together we enjoy exploring what mother nature has to offer us, red wine, all things organic, camping, and basically anything that gets us outside together. So be warned, you may just end up with new camping buddies...
Now here we are in 2022. With a thriving marriage, and multiple thriving businesses, life is beautiful.
Dan proposed on a backcountry hike in Newfoundland called "Western Brook Gorge".
Let's Create your Path
Ditching traditions, we trailblazed our own! We did a sunrise hike with our parents in Killarney Park in Ontario. Followed by camping and a bonfire feast.
We met online, yes on one of those dating apps. We instantly felt the sparks and have been inseparable ever since.

Celeste helped us in so many ways; she curated documents and plans, asked us questions, and was my constant contact for all the details with dress, decor, locations, and more. I was worried I would scare her off with my millions of questions and ideas daily, but instead, she always made time and supported me every step of the way.
She made us so comfortable the day-of whether we were in front on the camera or just hanging out. Even though we eloped and didn't have anyone we knew there, and hadn't met her before our wedding day, we very much felt the love and it was like we were surrounded by friends.
Celeste is incredible! She captured our wedding perfectly and had some sample photos back to us a few days after the wedding. She was incredibly easy to work with, very friendly and attentive. Her work is STUNNING and the effort, guidance and support she provides throughout the process is priceless! She really helped my husband and I to find special moments throughout our wedding.

(Bonus points if it involves hiking to a beautiful view)
In conclusion, I will cover traditional weddings too! Love is love, and I am over the moon to document it for you.
Unfortunately no. We only plan for elopements or small intimate gatherings of 25 or under people. You can always use us as a resource however. We can suggest vendors, help with your timeline, etc. But we will not take on full planning responsibilities.
Head over to the contact page and complete the form. After that we like to meet either in person, or phone to make sure we are a good fit. We then provide you with a custom invoice and contract for you to review. If you chose to proceed. A 50% retainer and signed contract is required to secure your date in my calendar.
After that, the fun begins! We get your wild dreams flowing, and we start crafting a unique day just for you. You didn't just hire me for that few hour time slot. We are a helping hand whenever you may need it!
