We had the pleasure of hiring essence photo Hawaii for our beach wedding ceremony and the photos came out so great. They really did capture the great moments. That we had to hire them again to shoot my wife’s maternity photos. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. Looking forward to working with you guys next year for my wife’s second maternity photo shoot.Sent on 08/19/2019

Johnny, Ed, and team did an amazing job shooting our wedding photos, as well as running the photo booth!Sent on 08/21/2019
Both photographers came early to shoot pre-wedding pics. Us getting ready, the venue, our rings, etc. They also provided us with a keepsake collage of edited pics on the same day of the wedding for us to take home! It was an amazing touch!
The photo booth props were super fun and they also give you a copy of everyone’s pics AND a flash drive with each single picture stored, yours to keep!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Essence! They go above and beyond, 110%! The edited photos were sent back promptly and we now have captured memories that will last us a lifetime. Thank you so much Johnny & Ed!

When your photographer becomes your friend.
We hired Johnny to be our photographer for our wedding based on the recommendation from our friend. From day one he was so easy to work with, he listened to our opinions and really listened to us. Our pictures turned out amazing! Two years later we hired him again to take our family photos with our son. I look forward to working with him again in the future!Sent on 05/15/2019
