What’s In Their Bag? A Look Inside Top Wedding Pros’ Kits Page 2
Arizona-based Michele Celentano's reputation for exquisite wedding photography has earned her a spot as the youngest and only female wedding photographer on the Canon "Explorers of Light" panel. While known for her wedding photography, the recent birth of her daughter has inspired her to focus on children and family photography. She has been featured in several leading professional photography magazines, and conducts seminars from her Arizona studio. A Canon shooter for many years, Celentano relocated to Arizona from New York City and attributes her success to her ability to connect with people, either in person or during telephone interviews.

Hailing from Australia, Yervant's avant-garde approach to wedding photography
is now a signature style recognized internationally. He brings glamour and emotion
to wedding photography and stresses the importance of great rapport with each
