Our business has been around for 30 years, starting out as a Camera & Photo supply store. We put in the 2nd Fuji One Hour Lab in the USA and the first One Hour Portrait Studio in Massachusetts. We have been shooting all types of portraits from baby's to families to pets, commercial work including the Gorton's Fisherman & their many functions, & many location photo shoots.
We started shooting wedding photography 17 years ago when Sharon started running the business on her own. Kendra, her daughter soon after joined the ranks as manager & second photographer after graduating from Mass Art in Boston. In 2006 son Kris completed an intense year & 1/2 graduate program at Boston University in creative photography & other business aspects including website design & marketing. At that point Kris also started as 2nd photographer & both Kendra & Kris are full time wedding photographers working at our gloucester location.
We are here to serve you in your photographic needs pertaining to all your wedding photography before & during the actual day. We are also very experienced in portraits of children when the time comes for you.

Your search for a wedding or event photographer should stop here. Kendra is an excellent choice for your wedding. Let me explain. My husband never smiles for pictures--always closes his eyes and looks awkward, although he is a photographer himself. That being said, we hired Kendra for digital files only. All I will say is there is not ONE bad picture and no deleted prints. My husband looks relaxed and YES he is smiling beautifully! ! To quote him, "anyone that can make me look great in pictures --deserves a metal". Needless to say, out of 500 I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites. Is 128 pictures really too much? Lol. Kendra you are the best.Sent on 12/08/2015

Kendra is great. We had a tough and rowdy group of boys that she managed to wrangle and even snap a few good pics. She was great about accommodating the two venues at which we were getting dressed. My only complaint is that at times the picture-taking seemed disorganized and that may be my fault. I was not the bride that had every image laid out in my mind so getting people together or staging spaces was a little awkward sometimes. We never went over a list . If you make sure you lock that down then this is a great company.Sent on 02/22/2017
It has been awhile since the Essex Room has had the pleasure of Sharon's Studio of Gloucester and Duxbury on-site to take the photographs for a wedding and reception we hosted recently. Kendra was the photographer and I was immediately impressed with her on many levels. She is smart, creative and understands the various bumps in the road that always come up without missing a beat. The endorsement is long overdue but written with great enthusiasm and thanks.
