Celestina Ando Photography LLC
I'm a contemporary portrait photographer with a studio located in Montclair, New Jersey. My work has been seen in The Huffington Post, Downtown Magazine NYC, Skyhorse Publishing and featured in various New Jersey publications. In 2019, my studio won Gold for Best Photographer in the Suburban Essex, Best of Essex Readers' Choice Awards contest. This year, I received a Silver merit, 6th place, for a self portrait in the International Portrait Masters Awards. I've received Bronze merits in various portrait categories in prior years as well. In April of 2018 & 2019, I exhibited my collections 'Empower' with proceeds benefiting SAVE of Essex County. To view the last exhibit click here.
I specialize in magazine style portraits while focusing on an authentic and empowering experience. My clients often claim they are not photogenic and are generally nervous or shy when they first start. However, it is completely my responsibility to take the pressure off by guiding, posing and artistically lighting them so that they can just focus on having fun. By the end of the shoot they are owning it! I get to capture this beautiful transformation and create legacy portraits with luxurious portrait products that my clients and their families can treasure for generations to come.
I invite you to a photo shoot with me to see yourself in a whole new light and to have portraits of yourself that you love. Thank you for visiting, I look forward to hearing from you!
