Another wonderful experience with Ese! I sent her a list of Pinterest must have poses for our maternity shoot and she made sure to get them all. She was flexible and gave us great feedback throughout the shoot. Highly Recommend!! 
Renee D. – March 2016

Ese was our favorite since the first session with her, before having even seen the pictures. She is the kindest soul and was so incredibly patient with our 2 small boys. Once we got our photos they were absolutely breathtaking – we knew there would be no other. One year later, we just did our second session with her and once again, incredible beyond words. Can’t wait to see the magic she captured again and looking forward to the next session already! Thank you Ese!

Jen B. – Nov. 2015

Ese was awesome from the start. She was warm and welcoming as she greeted us on time. Throughout our session she ensured to ask if we were both ok and comfortable. In addition, she scoped out various photo locations 2 weeks in advance so we had an efficient session. Ese is a very genuine professional. More importantly, we had plenty of wonderful photos to choose from.
Ervin H. – Nov. 2015

Ese, thank you for creating such natural and loving photos of our family. We originally only wanted three photos but we had trouble choosing so we ordered all the proofs. You made a possible tense moment with three children a breeze. Many thanks from our family!!

Ese was great — she was at the location before we arrived, had good ideas for locations/poses, interacted well with the kids, and even had some little prizes for the kids afterward. And the photos turned out beautifully! I was very specific about what kinds of pictures I wanted, and she listened.
Stephanie B. – Nov. 2015

Ese was prompt courteous and super polite! Overall very positive experience working with her and pictures were great. I loved her creativity and attention to detail in our poses, shots of the cake, and our rings. She gave us so many vivid pictures that really told the story of our special day. Thanks, Ese!!
Kimberly B. – Oct. 2015

Janelle B. – Oct. 2015

Ese was amazing with us and our 3-year old son and very professional. I couldn’t imagine a better photographer for a family shoot. The photos are fantastic and I would highly recommend her. Her use of light in the photos was beautiful and wonderfully artistic. One of the best photography experiences I’ve ever had.

She put me at ease with her friendly and professional demeanor. I’d totally user her as a photographer again!
Heather P. – Sept. 2015

Ese was amazing! So easy to talk to and very personable. We were on vacation in San Diego and had no idea what to expect. She picked a great location within walking distance of where we were staying. She was awesome with my 6 year old daughter and got a lot of great shots of her on the beach.
Stacy T. – Sept. 2015

Had an absolute blast working with Ese! Very professional, extremely personable, and flexible! Look no further — you’ve found the best!
Giovanni C. – July 2015

Ese was extremely friendly and professional; she put me right at ease. I was trying to beat the San Diego heat as a 7-month pregnant woman while carrying around my 3-year-old toddler at the end of the June summer month. She did a great job remaining upbeat and calm which really helped lift our mood even though the weather and waves were not cooperating too much. The photos came out beautiful.
Linda G. – June 2015

Ese was simply amazing. She took photos of my 2 girls for their combined frozen themed birthday party. I did not know of any great locations to take pictures of my girls in their frozen dress, but I knew I wanted a location outdoors that went somewhat with the frozen theme. Ese recommended a place and we were definitely not disappointed. The place she suggested was PERFECT and beautiful! She was very accommodating in asking me what I wanted and the look I was going for and I really believe she was able to follow through in the pictures. My youngest is 11 months and was a little difficult that morning, but Ese was extremely patient and was able to capture some good shots. She was also amazing with my 4 year old and towards the end of the shoot, she even gave my kids a little frozen gift. You will not be disappointed with Ese. Truly a great person and awesome photographer!
Kaysie W. – June 2015

We had a wonderful experience with Ese. She is lovely and very good as she captures the best moments ever!!!
Daniela V. – June 2015

We would definitely recommend Ese as a photographer for anybody in the area!
Gus A. – June 2015

Ese did a great job and made us feel very comfortable! She worked very well accommodating the shoot with our schedule! Highly recommend her!!
Tammy R. – June 2015

Emily M. – June 2015

Ese was absolutely fantastic! This was my first experience with a professional phoTOGrapher and she exceeded my expectations. If you’re looking for someone who will take your needs/wants into consideration and add creativity, go with Ese. You won’t be disappointed. We’ll be working together again soon.
Kyle G. – May 2015

Ese was wonderful. She had great ideas on locations for a shoot, poses, and was able to get my daughter at ease for some wonderful photos. We’ll be using her again for family and other photos and highly recommend her.
Randy L. – May 2015

Ese was great. Despite a miscommunication on my part about the time, she still made it work. More importantly, she made the best of trying to get shots of my two-year-old twins who took no direction.
Carolina L. – May 2015

Ese is so sweet. She is amazing with color. So easy to work with and she was wonderful with my daughter. Hire her….you will be blown away with every aspect of her work. I will tell everyone about her. Amazing photographer.
Seneca P. – May 2015

What am amazing photo shoot with Ese! She gave me confidence and made me feel comfortable with each pose. She showed me how the photos were turning out during the session, (which were awesome!) and made great use of our time. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a professional photo shoot for business shots, magazine, news media and family photos. I would give her 10 stars if I could!!
Daril B. – May 2015

Ese is an AMAZING photographer and did a fabulous job at our family photo shoot! She is very good with children and helped my shy 2 year old blossom in front of the camera. We will definitely be booking her for all future photo shoots 🙂
Elyse J. – May 2015

I’m so pleased with Ese’s work! She was fun to work with and my husband and I truly enjoyed getting our photos taken. I definitely intend on using her again for our family pictures in the future! She is so nice and caring! We couldn’t give a bigger thumbs up!
Ashley A. – April 2015

Ese is super great! She arrived early. Picked up nice spots to do the photoshot. All my family loves her. The photoshoot process was so pleasant, we had a lot of fun! Thank you for leaving us a good memory of our family time and my maternity time in San Diego!
Ivy Z. – April 2015

Ese made this so simple and fun! I would definitely do this again.
Carolina C. – April 2015

If I had two words to describe Ese to you. They would be. HIRE HER! She is amazing! She was willing to meet with me before to talk about everything and then we set a date to shoot. She was quick when it came to communication and she is so incredibly friendly. When it came time to shoot the pictures, my fiancé and I were super nervous and as soon as Ese started working with us, she made us feel incredibly comfortable. The turn around time on the pictures was less than 24 hours. She’s so professional and her pictures are equally amazing. I can’t stress enough how great she was. Seriously, hire her!
Mesha B. – April 2015

Oh my goodness! This photographer is wonderful! She is kind, thoughtful, understanding and an incredibly creative photographer. Ese went above and beyond to capture me enjoying my love of this area and doing some of the things I love to do here. She is talented and professional and will not disappoint her client. I strongly recommend this hardworking young lady with your photography requests. Many thanks, Ese, for a wonderful experience!
Rhonda S. – April 2015

Very Easy to work with, Has an awesome eye for some great shots. Thank you again.

I love working with Ese! She is so flexible, creative, and patient! Although I was nervous about the shoot, she put me right at ease, and made it really fun.
Lorelei T. – Jan. 2015

I am a person that hates taking photographs. However, Ese is an excellent photographer and made the experience enjoyable. It is rare for a picture to capture my “essence”, however, she was able to do just that. I would highly recommend her and will be using her again.
Gwendolyn F. – Jan. 2015

Very professional, terrific with the children (ages 0, 2, 4, and 6), lightening fast turn-around — would definitely hire her again!
Diana N. – Dec. 2014

Ese was so patient with the children and made everyone feel comfortable. The pictures turned out great and we got exactly what we wanted! I highly recommend Ese for anything family related. She just a knack for taking “in the moment” photos that truly capture personality and soul.
Jon M. – Dec. 2014

Thank you soooo much for the photo shoot today, you were a lot of fun to work with and made a very comfortable atmosphere!We just received your gift and we are extremely shocked and grateful! I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated what you did for us, and the extra gift was just icing on the cake and very thoughtful! You are a great photographer and we will be sure to continue to use and recommend your services! Thank you so much!
Gabbie R. – Dec. 2014

What a great experience! Ese was professional and reliable from our first contact and although we had a short (30 min) session, she got the shots I was looking for (and delivered them the same day!). She was so good with my 3 yr old daughter, who usually takes a while to warm up to people – which made it much easier to get some great pics. I’m extremely happy with the photos we got and will use them for holiday cards and gifts. I highly recommend Ese Esan, she was wonderful!!
Jen B. – Nov. 2014

We’ve never done a pictures outside of a studio before, so it was a little uncomfortable to make that leap, but we wanted to try something a little different this year. Ese was great! She was very nice and made us feel comfortable. We had very little idea of what to expect or ask for, but she did a great job of helping us get some great shots. I love the pictures that she took of our daughter, and the whole album makes me smile. Thank you!
Amber H. – Nov. 2014

Ese was WONDERFUL she was very professional and showed up early to discuss what pictures I wanted her to capture. It was so wonderful to have someone capture all the photos i was looking to get. It was also very nice to not have to worry about having my camera out every moment to take the photos myself, and enjoy the party in the moment. She took wonderful photos of our set up , candid shots, as well as posed photos. She also made sure to find out who all the keys guests were to make sure she could capture some special moments. She was very pleasant to work with and would love to hire her again. I have already suggested this website to other friends and family.
Tanya M. – Oct. 2014

Ese was a Fantastic TOG, she arrived early, stayed throughout our entire event, and took some really amazing photographs. 5 Stars all around, I’m so happy I picked Ese!

She was great with all the kids and they were all happy to have their picture taken. I would defiantly hire Ese again and recommend her to all my friends and family. Thanks again Ese, see you for my next event!
Jamie L. – Sept. 2014

Wow, Ese, due to my own lack of photogenic quality, I assumed there may be 1 photo that I didn’t hate. YOU are a very talented photographer, as there are several pics that I actually love, thanks so very much for creating such an awesome experience for me, you rock!!
Kimberly P. – Sept. 2014

Ese, these pictures are beautiful. Thank you so much for doing them. You did an amazing job!

Jessica G. – Aug. 2014

Thank you for this experience. It was so much fun my kids enjoyed it!!!
Laura D. – Aug. 2014

Ese has photographed me, my family and friends on several occasions. She is a pretty amazing photographer. She is very pleasant to with and she is a magician with the camera. She gives great yet simply instructions that allow her to capture memorable moments like no one else can. I will definitely use her as my photographer whenever I can.
John L. – July 2014

Ese took very good photos. The quality of the pictures where outstanding! She had a lot of patience and was very friendly and made me feel at ease when photographing my family. It did not take her long at all to finish editing and get the pictures to me and when I had special requests she was always open to them and wanted to make sure I was happy with what I was getting. I would highly recommend her services if you want good quality pictures. I feel the price is reasonable as well, especially when she offers her mini session/specials!
Erica C. – March 2014

We love the pictures! You did such a great job! We hope to work with you guys for our next photo shoot when we need one. I will definitely keep your info and pass it on to our friends.

Nancy L. – March 2014

Ese Esan Photography not only made me feel incredibly comfortable and at ease, but made me feel like she listened to exactly what I wanted and the results were to die for. The pictures turned out amazingly beautiful. I have and would recommend Ese Esan Photography!!!
Heather E. – Sept. 2013

Thanks to Ese Esan who took these amazing pictures of my wedding!
Nkechi E. – Sept. 2013

The quality of your portraits are amazing. You always capture that moment in time we all love to cherish. Best of luck and thanks for my pictures!
Christie O. – Sept. 2013

Ese Esan took photos of my baby and my family. My son was very comfortable working with her and she was able to elicit a smile from him. I would recommend her to others as she was very punctual and professional.
Eta I. – July 2013

My amazingly talented friend Ese of Ese Esan Photography took family photos of us just a few days ago and I have to be honest, I am blown away by the way she captured our family and can’t stop marveling over the photos. We’ve never had professional photos taken of our family and had yet to get a single photo of the five of us together before that day. Ese did an AMAZING job of capturing our family. She is incredibly talented. She provided a professional, but relaxed environment. Our photos are incredible and her pride and attention to detail are evident in our family album. I can’t say enough positive things about her as a person or as a photographer!
Finessa B. – July 2013

Ese came over to our home to do an indoor/outdoor photo shoot of our family (my wife, my two young daughters, and me). The result well exceeded our expectations. Ese masterfully navigated various physical environments, all the while allowing us to focus on being ourselves for the camera. The results were very natural and simply beautiful. She captured us in our element by putting us at ease and using her unique blend of artistic and technical talent to produce stunning images of our family. Highly recommended.
Rodrigo R. – July 2013

Ese has mad skills with the camera!!!
Coco R. – July 2013

These are absolutely breath-taking, I can’t even tell you how amazing they are. … these are absolutely perfect. Thanks so much, this means so much to me and to us! We haven’t had any professional photos done before with (name redacted) prior to this week.
Margarita B. – June 2013

On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m probably an 8 when it comes to being a persnickety client. When I approached Ese about my idea to do a 30th birthday shoot, I was really happy that, one, she thought my idea was cool, and two, she accepted the job. She accepted so fast, I wasn’t sure what I was in for. I kept stressing the fact that I didn’t want regular looking pictures, I wanted photographic art.
Of course I had a vision for the shoot, but some of my ideas weren’t logistically feasible, so I had to adjust the plan. I was open to suggestions, but I didn’t want to lose the essence of what I was trying to capture. Like a true pro, she helped me develop my ideas, and offered very good alternative suggestions.
I must say, I was quite impressed with her ability to creatively work the scene. My vision was to do an urban photo shoot. She took it a step further by saying let’s make the theme “urban renaissance”. That said, the environment played a huge role in the pictures, but I didn’t want the surrounding to be too overpowering. We shot at an old dilapidated train station, a colorfully aged office building, a loft-like office tower, and a community riverwalk.
I like that Ese was always willing to listen to me in the planning phase, and at the shoot itself. Every time I had a new idea, I’d call her up and we’d discuss how we could incorporate that suggestion. She was so laid back, I couldn’t tell whether she was really listening to me, or just trying to appease me. I guess I was pretty stressed out from all my birthday planning. But she was pretty calm throughout the process.
When I saw the sample photos she provided me two days later, I was completely taken back. I figured the pictures would be good, but I was wowed. I’ve used these photos for several projects, and have always gotten compliments. I hate that Ese moved away because several people have asked me about my photographer. She was completely flexible and very personable. This picky guy highly recommends Ese Esan Photography.
