Testimonials

Transforming everyday gals into sexy pin-ups is gratifying enough. But hearing how much they enjoyed finding their inner vixen or how much their guys adored the photos is the icing on the cupcake! Below are some sweet things my clients had to say about their pin-up experience.


“OMG….tears in my eyes!! You’ve done the only pictures in my life that made me feel and look pretty. Thank you so much for this gift. You and your staff are the best!!” ~ TRACEY
I have been raving about my day with you girls. You know how when you are really looking forward to something, and it finally gets there and it never really lives up to expectations? Well, it was the exact OPPOSITE!! I never dreamed it would be more than I hoped it would but it truly surpassed all expectations and hopes! Thank you again for a truly amazing day” ~ AMY
I’m currently deployed to Iraq and I just received the package of photos that you did for my girlfriend. What a way to make my day!!!! She is such a beautiful woman and your work is incredible. Again the work you did is great. I’m almost at a loss for words. Definitely a first for me. ~ MICAH
I love your work and I love how you work. I really felt like I hung out with some friends when I was at your home; and I felt like I was representin for the average (plus) size pin-up of color. ~ NAKIA
Thank you for such a good experience. This was a really scary thing for me to do – I was terrified to do this, and you made me feel so comfortable. ~ DONNA
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures. I love them of me, and LOVE them of my cousin… and think that the ones of us together are just adorable. I really couldn’t be happier. I know that she really thought that was so special, and enjoyed every minute of it. As her ‘almost’ sister, I can’t tell you what it meant to me that she was smiling the whole day through. She just felt wonderful, for an entire day. I know that this really helped to boost her confidence. Thank you a million times. Just can’t tell you what it means to me. ~ KRISTEN
My first shoot with Celeste and her team was when my overall confidence was at an all time low, I had gained a lot of weight, and just was not feeling great. When it was all said and done, I had found something in me that was buried for years. Shooting with Celeste gave me the kick in the ass I needed to feel good about myself again.  From the moment you walk in her studio you are treated like gold, she is warm and friendly, and makes you feel as welcome as you would be at the home of a girlfriend you’ve known or years. Her eye for detail beats any other, and makes sure even your fingertips are posed just right. The whole process is handled beyond professionally, that at the end of the day you forget you are in a room of women you just met wearing only your skives. Since my first shoot I have gone back a few times, I even brought my husband along to shoot a Christmas card, and he has so much fun, we decided to make it a tradition each year! ~ SAMANTHA
I did my pin-up over a year ago and it was such an amazing experience! My fiance was completely blown away with his birthday gift and said that he would never be able to top it! My consultation with Celeste was so much fun, and the photo shoot, itself, was simply amazing. There’s no other way to explain it. Possibly one of the best days of my life! Thank you to Celeste and her amazing team! Such a wonderful day!!! AND BEAUTIFUL PICTURES that’ll last a lifetime! ~ MAUREEN
The proofs turned out great. Both my husband and I were really happy with them. It was very difficult to choose. I think my husband may have wanted one of each pose. Thank you again. I am so glad that I did this as it was an absolutely amazing gift for my husband. He’s already thinking about having me get more shots done. ~ LAURA
For just one day, I was a model, celebrity, a beauty queen. It was an awesome feeling and an amazing experience. Celeste’s team is the absolute best in making you feel so special and stunning! She does an incredible thing turning everyday girls into totally bettys! It is something I will treasure for ever!!!! My husband too! ~ MAUREEN
Whenever I look at pictures of a photo shoot with Celeste, it always makes me remember all of the fun I had on those days.
If you take a look at the Pinup Gallery – and I highly recommend that you do – you’ll see that all of the ladies who have posed for Celeste are gorgeous…not just because Celeste and her team make us look gorgeous, but because they make us FEEL gorgeous, too. And that’s the most wonderful part of the process. I still consider Celeste’s work one of the highlights of living here in this city. Even if I moved away, I think I’d have to come back every six months or so just to work with her some more! ~ MAYUMI
Thanks for everything. I had such a great time – flying down and taking the trains and the shoot – it was quite an adventure! But, you and the girls all helped me to feel relaxed and totally comfortable. Everyone was so nice and seemed really down to earth. ~ AMY
I thank you so much for your time and for making me feel like a movie star if just for a day. You were all great!!!!! ~ MARGARET
My husband absolutely loved the pictures! He says he keeps them in his wall locker so that every time he opens it, he sees me. =) And he can’t wait to come home and look at them all, and order more, lol….Thanks so much! ~ COURTNEY
Celeste is without a doubt the best in pin up photography…check out any of the pin up magazines or websites and see for yourself. From prop setup to lighting to the finished product, Celeste is perfection. We are lucky to have her in Philadelphia!  Add in a talented team of hair and makeup and what you get is authentic, gorgeous pictures. I have had many shoots with the team and even treated my mother to a shoot. My mother was hesitant at first and skeptical as to whether she would enjoy herself. She loved it and thanked me for days afterwards, saying what a lovely time it was and how much fun she had. As far as I am concerned, every woman should experience a day at the studio with these women as it does more for your self esteem than weeks at the gym! If you are thinking of booking a shoot for yourself or for a loved one…..think no more, just do it! ~ ANN
Omg! These are great! Thank you so much! I’m so happy I did this! Your work is amazing, and if it wasn’t for your wonderful personality I don’t know if I would actually been able to go through with the shoot! ~ BETHANN
I just wanted to thank you, I had such a great time being a Pin-Up today! I really, really, did!! Your make-up artist and hair stylist are amazing… and you were AMAZING!!!! I just felt so comfortable around you, and you were so helpful, accommodating, and easy to work with!!!! I really want to come back. I just wanted to thank you and tell you how much I enjoyed my experience as a pin-up and that I really hope to work with you again someday!!! You are awesome, and what you are doing for women is awesome! I felt so beautiful and sexy today! I wish you all the luck in the world! ~ LIZA
My hubby finally made his choices. He is so cute. He blushes every time I ask or mention anything about it. He’s still blown away. And he wrote down his choices instead of showing me… 🙂 ~ SHAWN
The photo shoot was FANTASTIC from start to finish. Celeste makes you feel super comfortable & sexy and gives direction to help turn you into an authentic pin up. The outfits & props to choose from are amazing. I had a blast being there and absolutely LOVE my photos. I receive SO many compliments on them. I can’t WAIT to do it all over again. I refer Celeste to everyone. Her work is amazing and it’s truly something you should do for yourself!! ~ TINA
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for the opportunity to be a pin-up! I had a lot of fun! I gave up and let my husband decide. The funny thing is when I said I was giving him his present early, he asked if that’s what I was wearing?? He didn’t even realize it was me at first. He recognized the shirt I was ironing before me. ha-ha… Anyway he LOVED them! ~ COLLEEN
The pictures look great! I ended up letting my boyfriend pick which pic he liked. It took him forever cause he liked them all. ~ SYLVIA
Thank you so much for the great work! I can’t believe how flippin’ adorable you guys made me look! ~ JAMIE
OMG I am so excited you have no idea! Thank you so much, I love the way I look! Now the hard part… deciding. ~ LIZ
