MEET CÉLESTINE AERDEN
Hi, I’m Célestine. I’m a wedding and elopement photographer for adventurous couples. Based in Alberta, Canada, you can often find me wandering around my amazing backyard; the Canadian Rockies.
I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors and couldn’t be more thankful to live in this gorgeous country (I grew up in Belgium, Europe). I often get super excited when I’m shooting, I’m madly in love with my husband and I’m always up for an adventure. Some of my favourite things in the world are dogs, traveling new places, my family, watching sunrises or sunsets, and anything outdoors.
I love finding unique locations for my clients and I believe it’s important to have a wedding photographer that you connect with and is a good fit. If you’re okay with getting a little muddy, hopping some fences, hiking a mountain or letting the wind flow through your hair, then I’m sure we’ll get along just fine! I would love to hear your story and will travel anywhere in this beautiful world to document your love!

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“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.”

“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.”
ANDREW & KRISTINE
“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!”
