We had Mike as our photographer and he did not take as many specialty pictures as I would have liked, which was why I picked him because of his style of photography. He cut my sister in laws head out of 8 family picture, not sure how he didn't notice that. My pictures of me, the bride, with everyone seperate, was taken next to a gutter which I was too busy to notice. I have no pictures with just the groomsman. The grooms father is in every picture with them. My husband said he didn't even know his dad was in all the pics. I am just not really happy at all. Im happy that I have pictures. But the quality was just not that good. The reception photos look like I took them. I think my digital takes better pictures. I was told all the pics would be touched up and thats why it takes a month to get the pictures and none of them were. I wanted to see the proofs before I paid for my album and they said that was not possible. Even if they sucked which they kind of did. I still would have paid to have my pictures of my wedding. The customer service is not the greatest. I will say that Mike was a very nice guy and I thought he did an ok job. Not all the pics are horrible. I would not use them again though.
Our best vender by far – Essence was amazing! I honestly don't know that I can put in to words how great a job he did. He was extremely friendly and polite, often thanking us for lining up to take pictures. He had wonderful ideas for shots and also indulged others ideas for shots. We are especially excited that we captured my Dad's entire family. We really enjoyed have Essence capture our big day and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Many thanks!! by the way we loved the PORTAL
Amy was great, she gave us direction and also listened to our opinions. She was very easy going and helpful. We enjoyed working with her.
We would recommend him! – Eric was wonderful! He was energetic, enthusiastic and everyone loved him! He went above + beyond our expectations. He seemed to capture every moment of the night, but wasn't over bearing. We would recommend him to any of our friends/family.
He was very nice and professional. He really worked well w/ our wedding! He was very helpful and calm and made the day seem very less stressful! He did great at handling guests asking for photos, and really seemed to listen to our suggestions as well as use his own ideas. We were very pleased!
Extremely professional and fun – Lorelei was extremely professional and fun. She showed enthusiasm for her job and made our family feel comfortable. She kept to our very strict timeline and even shot more than I expected. We loved Lorelei!
Liz was very professional, we wanted mostly candid photos, which is what we got. She also took great shots at Millennium Park.
We had a good experience with our photographer. We were pleased.
Above and beyond – Very personable and open minded. He provided assistance outside the scope of his job, provided good suggestions, and went with the flow. We had no issues at all, and would recommend our photographer, loved him!
Essence of excellence – Olivia was beyond fantastic! She was fun, professional, creative & dedicated. She expertly dealt both the adults & the kids. I don't know what else to say except she reflects well on Essence & I would highly recommend her in a heartbeat. Can't wait to see the proofs!
