YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Our Couples

The first day we met with Chris at Essence, we booked! From Karen & Peggy in the front office to working with our photographer & videographer, we could not have asked for a better experience. The portal that Essence uses is a fantastic resource to have. Our photographer and videographer were looped in on all our requests, making the process very easy for us. Our photographer, Allison, quickly became a member of the wedding party. We had an absolute blast with her! Throughout the craziness of family photos, she was able to take lead and get them done in the most professional manner. I loved seeing our videographer’s creativity come to life. He was able to be subtle and captured intimate moments beautifully! Our wedding party enjoyed every moment!
