Booking Your appointment

Once you have purchased your voucher, have a chat with your family about everybody’s availability and get a couple of dates in mind. You can either call us on 01253 726801 or one of our diary team will contact you to arrange your appointment.

We are open Tuesday to Saturday and the first Sunday of every month, plus we have a late night on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Weekends get booked up very quickly, so get your diaries at the ready.

We would like to know a little bit about you and your family, for example your children’s names and ages plus any interests or hobbies they enjoy, the more information you can give us, the more we can tailor the shoot for you, plus when your photographer first meets you it’s like meeting your friends. Have a look on our Website portfolio, Facebook and Instagram pages to help you get a good idea of what your wanting to get out of your Essensi photo shoot. We are here to answer any queries so ask away.We will give you directions to the studio and once you have an appointment we will send you a confirmation text. To secure your booking we do take a £25 booking fee which is refundable providing no appointments are missed. If you do have to rearrange appointments, please give 3 days’ notice.

Me and my daughter (age 4) came here for a mother and daughter photo shoot. We arrived with my husband and was made to feel very welcome. Megan did my little girls hair and a little sprinkle of pink eye shadow on my little girl “mummy I feel like a princess” this melted mine and my husbands heart from how happy she was :). Then I had my hair and makeup done the make up was amazing and I still felt like me natural but perfect natural I love being pampered and the whole experience was incredible. With the photo shoot we had laughs, giggles and big happy smiles all round. We didn’t feel awkward at all my little girl is normally quite shy with things like this but Megan brought her out of her shell immediately and she was dancing around and loving every moment and didn’t want it to end :) .
Then we came back for our view where we met Gail in a lovely setting with background music to watch the photos that we had taken by Megan . Gail was lovely and made us feel at ease we took our time talking and viewing our photos and the options with them. There was no pressure to buy any of the photos and the prices were to suit everyone’s budget . We didn’t feel in any way awkward and were very happy with our purchases and the over all experience and we can't thank you enough from all three of us :) xx
Thank you so much Amy Amos!
Molly and Django (our dogs) had a photo shoot last week and today, we went to see the finished photos. Well, what can I say.... simply amazing!! The pictures are stunning. The team are very professional and gave us loads of advice. We came out with a great deal and I can honestly say that I can’t wait to pick our pictures up. I can’t thank the team at Essensi enough. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you again, we now have amazing photos of our dogs, that we will truly treasure forever.
Thank you Roxanne, what an amazing review!
We had a pet photo shoot with Essensi, my daughter Chantelle and i, along with our bulldog Ibby were welcomed by a friendly team. The photo shoot was amazing, so relaxed and so much fun. It really was an enjoyable and memorable time. We left extremely happy and couldn’t wait for out appointment to view the pictures. They were all amazing, again a lovely experience, the photos were great and there was no pressure at all to purchase extras, though we did because couldn't choose between two so I chose one and Chantelle the other. We can't wait to be called to the new studio to collect out prints, and of course say hi to all the team and see the premises :) Would not hesitate to recommend Essensi they were amazing - go on, give it a go, you wont be disappointed!
Thank you Tracey!
Having just got home from our photo shoot viewing, I'm so so excited to get these photos they are everything I ever wanted and more, Gail was so helpful and patient when we were choosing which ones to have and the 2 girls during the photo shoot were amazingly patient with my breastfeeding newborn who was a bit cranky and very hungry that day!! I couldn't recommend highly enough and am so excited to get the finished product, memories we will treasure forever!
Thank you Katy, we are so glad you love your photographs!
