Hi! I am Karen Clerkin, an award winning Wedding Photographer based in Rostrevor, Newry, Co.Down who covers all Northern Ireland along with the border Counties Louth, Monaghan, Cavan, and Dublin. I set up Essence Photography in 2010 and can honestly say I LOVE my job! With the icing on the cake being awarded the Southern Regional Wedding Photographer of the Year Award in 2016, and top 10 finalist in 2017 and 2018.
I specialise in wedding photography. I thrive on capturing every moment of your special day, in a relaxed and unobtrusive way, with a bit of fun threw in for good measure.
I think it is my relaxed approach that allows for not only beautiful and natural images, but also fun images to be captured, ensuring your day is full of precious memories.
I also cover portraiture photography in either outdoor settings (which we are blessed with an abundance of locations on our door step) or in your own surroundings.
Each package includes all edited images on USB ( saved as hi-res, ready to print) , also a DVD slideshow set to music - a good addition for those not considering a videographer, plus your favourite image as 20x24" framed.
