“Cedna has a very special style of photography, which I loved! Her unique style and eye for capturing special moments is what made her standout amongst the many other photographers. I did a lot of research when trying to find my wedding photographer and I could not be happier that I stumbled into her. She’s extremely talented with using natural light to create such interesting and beautiful photos, my husband and I just loved her!!! “
ZAHRA AND MARK
Phenomenal. Can’t say enough good things about Cedna. Her photographs have a warmth and expressiveness that is missing from many of the formulaic wedding photos provided by other photographers we considered. She is an excellent and creative photographer who is focused on her client’s needs. She spent a lot of time ensuring she was creating what we wanted in all aspects. She was very responsive and we really appreciated her experience and guidance in choosing/planning.
When we got back our wedding photos from Cedna one of the first things I said to my husband was: “when we have a baby I absolutely want to do a family shoot with her!” I knew we could all relax with Cedna because there was no question in my mind that she would capture beautiful images of our family. There are many photographers who can take beautiful posed shots – but not quite so many who can capture the essence of family interaction and candid moments. When I am old, I will be able to look back fondly at how hard my baby could make her grandparents laugh, how calming her auntie was when she cried, and how in love my husband and I were with our daughter. My family will treasure these photos forever.

My husband and I are utterly content with our wedding photos. I cried the first time we went through them, I was so happy that all these wonderful moments were preserved forever!
At the beginning, not only was Chedna easy to reach but excellent at communicating exactly what she would provide us with. As an artist she is entirely aware of where she excels, and what sort of work she just isn’t a good fit for.
Our wedding had a lot of children and Chedna captured a lot of amazing moments of the kids and their families that we were thrilled to find. She has a wonderful eye for beautiful moments that evoke memories very distinctly. My husband and I said this several times: I kept looking over and seeing something and thinking “gosh that would make a great picture” and she had already caught it, or was in the process of doing so.
Chedna took our suggestions (more family and friends candids, fewer portraits) and requests, worked her butt off on our wedding day, and gave us back a finished product we’ll treasure always. While we were initially not sure about the portraits, they turned out beautifully and we are really glad she was so firm about getting them.
Cannot recommend her highly enough!
Not only is she extremely professional and efficient, Cedna has the unique ability to capture unexpected moments and feelings in every shot. She knows how to capture the essence of the moment, effortlessly. She has photographed not only my family, but also my art work and could not have been happier. Hire this woman. She’s the bomb!
Cedna provided our family with a snapshot in time of some very special moments. The end of my pregnancy and the first days with our new baby went by so fast, but I can always look back at our photos and remember all the smells, touches, struggles, joy and exhaustion that happened in that short time. Her photos captured our life, it was not a staged photoshoot of awkward family photos. They feel authentic and raw, true to our lives. I’m so glad I did both these shoots, even if I was hesitant about the maternity photos at first;)
On a professional level, working with Cedna was easy and fast. She is approachable and quick to respond. She understood what we wanted out of the photos and also provided her own creative input. Especially working with our young boys she was great, and we all know how hard it is to get a 7 year old to do anything other than the “cheese” smile.
We couldn’t be happier.

We have hired Cedna three times for family photo sessions and will continue to use her in the future. She somehow has the ability to capture the essence of our family each session in unique and honest ways. Our family will forever cherish her beautiful photos. Her casual yet professional approach comes highly recommended and her work speaks for itself.
