Andrea was a delight to work with and produced beautiful photos. She was very responsive and sensitive to what I was looking for and made the whole experience a pleasure. She not only made me feel comfortable, she was creative and made the shoot fun. She's a gifted photographer, professional to the core, and did a great job editing the final photos. I will definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends!Mar 5, 2018Verified

Wedding and Event Photography
Andrea is an awesome photographer and we highly recommend her for your special event. We hired her to photograph our wedding and right from the beginning I was put at ease with sense of professionalism and willingness to meet our needs and expectations. We met a couple of weeks in person to discuss our wedding plans and the number of guests as well as any special image requests. The day of the event Andrea was prompt, dressed professionally and had a smiling face throughout the event. She even stayed a little bit later to capture some last minute photos at the reception.May 6, 2019VerifiedAndrea Esselman's reply
Thanks Lisa! You and Greg were so awesome to work with! Congratulations again!
My experience with Andrea was beyond perfect. I was tasked with putting together a work-related commemorative video, but did not have the time for the editing. I had never before used a video editor remotely, but Andrea inspired my confidence in our first telephone call, and I looked no further. Her work, its quality, her creativity, responsiveness, her everything (!) could not have been more superlative. I unequivocally endorse her!Feb 17, 2019VerifiedAndrea Esselman's reply

I just make sure I have all the details worked out with you early on. * Make the work happen - whether it's a video edit, event photography, or a photo shoot, I make sure the work is done promptly, efficiently, and properly. * That's pretty much it. Easy peasy.
