Definately recommend Essence Photography. Karen put everyone at ease during our wedding on 4th May. Great craic had by my whole wedding party. Karen was a pleasure from start to finish. Faultless service. Down to the tiniest fix of the dress or position of my bouquet. All to get the best pictures possible. Brilliant with my two boys aswell. Loving my sneek peek pictures. Cant wait to see the rest. More...

Karen you did a great job with our wedding pics, captured some fab moments! Someone said to me in work today that they saw one of our wedding pics up on your fb page so I’ve had a wee look and there we are! It’s my fave shot - a natural pic and I framed that exact one for my mummy! Thank you Karen! Xxxxx More...

Karen is a great photographer. As a videographer, I have worked with her on numerous occasions and have always found her easy to work with. She's very professional but fun and friendly at the same time.

Her photography is very stylish, artistic and creative. Would definitely recommend you give her a shout for your wedding or other events.
