Hello everyone. My name is Anesta. I am an Essex Wedding Photographer.
Becoming a parent really sparked my interest in photography. I had a desire to capture all those wonderful moments of childhood, which can quickly become forgotten as time passes. And there was no denying that I had a magnet-like ability to entertain children (long before I had any children of my own), which has proven to be a valuable characteristic when trying to bring the best out of people in front of the camera. And it is here where my journey into photography began.
A little more about me...
Time really does fly when you are having fun. I can hardly believe that my husband Gareth and I will be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary in 2017.
We have three children who are the centre of our world.
I graduated from the London College of Fashion many moons ago.
I discovered I was pretty good at maths after working in the HQs of major fashion retailers in merchandising and buying.
I am a great believer that education really matters.
I worked in the education non-profit sector for 11 years.
I am a published poet.
I have a qualification to practice Indian head massage.
I have been a charity trustee and a primary school governor.
I was shortlisted as a finalist for both 2013 Havering Business Awards New and 2013 Docklands Business Club & East London New Business of the Year.
I was a regional finalist in The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards - Photographer of the Year.
