They shot our engagement photo session and was also there with us from the beginning until the end of our wedding day. We both can truthfully say that we are 100% satisfied with his work, and our entire experience with Chad and Jolene. From our very first conversations, we were immediately put at ease, we knew that we were in good hands! Our engagement session was amazing, we had so much fun, and felt relaxed. They allowed us the freedom to be ourselves, while guiding us with their own unique creative touch and the pictures came out AMAZING!! They COMPLETELY captured everything we wanted and more in our photos. Our wedding day was very much the same experience, we were extremely happy with their work. Chad and Jolene were with us from morning until night, enabling them to capture every one of our important moments. We have heard this is not always the case with professional photographers. We felt like our images were just as important to them as they were to us. The results were priceless, and we enjoyed every moment of our experience!

When taking our photos he made us feel so comfortable, creating the most outstanding candid shots, and even for the typical photo’s we never felt rigid or awkward. He helped us to feel relaxed and natural, even with our little niece, who is four! What we especially liked was how his photos were tailored to us. He let us lean in our own direction and style, for example there were some special photos we wanted such as a kiss under the veil at the mansion, and of us playing the Wii in our gown and tux at home (it may have sounded silly but he gave us exactly what we wanted). He took our vision, added his creativity, and made our shots very special and gave an elegant feel to the photos. We recommend him to everyone. And he is someone we will continue to trust with our memories.

You can tell from his work that he has a very quick eye, and he was able to capture the most genuine candid photos. We especially loved the scenes he picked for our engagement pictures. They looked like genuine time period photographs. We felt very comfortable working with him. We love his work and he was able to give us memories that will last forever. I would say he was able to capture the essence the moment, and emotion throughout the day. We will definitely come to him again with any family photos in the future. Truly a great photographer. I recommend him to everyone! Contact him today and you wont be sorry, I wasn’t. Thanks so much Essence Photography!!
