Michele Celentano's passion for wedding photography continues to grow, even after fourteen years. Michele quickly became one of the most successful wedding photographers in New York after graduating from the Germain School of Photography at the Center for Media Arts in New York City.
Her style expertly blends traditional and documentary photojournalism. Michele was awarded her Craftsmen Degree from the professional Photographers of America and has earned numerous accolades from Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.
She is one of a rare group of photographers to receive a perfect print score of 100 in professional print competition. Her work has been published in Fuji Profiles, Rangefinder, and American Photographer magazines, as well as several books on wedding photography including the recently published The Best of Wedding Photojournalism, by Bill Hurter. Michele has been touring on the professional lecture circuit for more than five years, drawing record numbers with her dynamic, high energy, and inspirational programs.
Michele relocated to Phoenix Arizona after the birth of her daughter in 2002, where she continues to thrill her clients with outstanding images of their special day. Michele reached a career high in February 2004, after kicking off the largest International Photography Convention, "Wedding and Portrait Photographers International" in Las Vegas.
As an official spokesperson for Canon USA, Michele will continue to teach and lecture on the subject of wedding photography throughout the world.
