My experience working with Victoria from Essence Images was beyond my expectations. The images were beautifully crafted and captured the mood and theme of the shoot. Victoria made me feel comfortable, offered a creative approach, and was incredibly patient. I would highly recommend Essence Images to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer on the Central Coast.

Victoria was professional and passionate about her work. This made it more comfortable and far easier to get photos that were genuine. We were very happy with the results and will be sure to get more photos.

Thank you for your amazing work in shooting both our Powder-coating Facility and our client’s Architectural house in Redhead.  Not only were you an absolute delight to work with but the images you captured were right on brief. I especially loved the mix of both creative and corporate shots which will be used for a variety of applications both now and into the future.  I would not hesitate in recommending Essence Images.

Victoria is the best photographer I have ever been to! She has a way of chatting as she clicks away and you forget yourself and then are amazed how good you look

Victoria took the time to talk about my needs.  I could tell she had really thought about how to get the best results for my purposes during the shoot.  Her warmth and friendliness and willingness to take the time and number of photos needed to guarantee results made my experience with Essence Images very enjoyable and rewarding.  With other photographers I  always felt rushed and pressured and it showed in the end results.    –  Ursula Benstead Consulting

Thanks for turning the terrifying thought of having my photo taken into a fun experience!  The photos turned out better than I could ever have imagined.  Thanks for your professionalism and patience.                                –  Louise Harding Animal Talent

Portrait Testimonials

Wow-what an experience! From the moment I called Essence Images and spoke to Victoria I instantly felt comfortable. I mentioned that I was considering a boudoir shoot, but that it was completely out of my comfort zone.  I received lovely informative emails and follow-up phone calls from Victoria with all the information required to prepare for the shoot way in advance to ensure I had time to prepare.   When I arrived I was greeted with a drink,  went into hair and makeup, and general chit-chat followed – everything just created such a relaxing environment.                  The shoot was not rushed, and there was plenty of giggles and girl talk. Victoria just made me feel so at ease with the process. 

The photos are next level. I find it hard to believe that they are me, they are just taken so perfectly.    I walked out of Essence Images with a newfound self-confidence and respect for myself. I love my photos and my husband loves them even more.          Aleashia K

This experience was AMAZING.  I was so nervous and totally thought I lacked the confidence to pull it off.  I was WRONG – Victoria was wonderful and made me feel instantly comfortable – so much FUN. Thank you so much-  I love them and am getting amazing feedback from all I show  –  Chauntelle R

Victoria gets the best photos out of people. I love mine. My first lot of professional photos done by famous guy who does all the politicians and highflier headshots were awful and really expensive. So glad I found Victoria.  – Ursula Thompson
