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.
