    I have been working at Essence Photo & Video part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are family owned and are very nice to work with

    Cons

    they train and expect a lot to make the bride happy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    charge more money cause we bust our ass in the field. I feel the wedding day guide have a lot of info for a photographer that we really don't need to no. Example send bride a big guide then send us what we need to no. I realize that brides don't understand how much work it is to shoot a wedding but wish there was a way to get them to understand that 15min for picks just don't work if you want pj. I guess that's why i worked for them cause there are always problems with people in any biz.
