Essence Photography specialisies in wedding photography and is run by award winning contemporary female photographer Karen. Whilst based in south down, I cover all of Northern Ireland and border counties, and have added destination weddings to my portfolio.

My relaxed approach to photography allows for beautiful and natural but also fun images to be captured, ensuring your day is only full of precious memories, and my eye for detail will ensure every detail doesn’t go forgotten.
