Brilliant photographer but more importantly a really special person who will blend seamlessly into your big day, it was like having an extra best friend on the wedding day.

I can’t recommend Anesta Broad Photography enough. We had her and her assistant Rhianna as our wedding photographers and, although we’ve only seen a sneak preview of the photos, we’re already absolutely over the moon with them. My husband and I aren’t very good at doing overly posed photos, we find them a little uncomfortable, so Anesta’s more natural style of photography suits us perfectly. Of course we had some of the obligatory staged shots, but even then Anesta and Rhianna snapped away as everyone chatted and got into place so we have the natural photos of people laughing together which is exactly what we wanted. All of our guests also commented on how nice the photographers were!

I also have to make a special mention for how amazing Anesta and Rhianna were with our nephew, Archie. Archie has special needs and finds cameras fascinating and both Anesta and Rhianna were more than happy for him to stand with them and give them directions about who to take photos of! It just cemented the fact that not only are they incredible photographers, but they really care about the people they’re photographing.

Thank you so much Anesta and Rhianna, you captured our day perfectly and I’m so glad we have so many beautiful photos to look back on.

I cannot Express how much I recommend Anesta! Her work is incredible, she photographed our wedding and she captured so many unique and beautiful moments! She captured the light, natural poses, and moments that shouldn’t be missed! She was very polite and efficient! Will use her again for future events!

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. You were truly outstanding and your expertise shone! All of our guests complimented you and your work and having now seen the fruits of your labour, we are over the moon with the shots taken. Both Chris and I were very camera shy but we had so much fun! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and will definitely use you again in the future.

Impressed with your attitude, discretion and enthusiasm for your work, I trusted you with the photography for our wedding. During the day you were non-invasive and well received by the guests. But the highlight was when we received our gallery. Each photograph that you took was unique and it was clear you had put a lot of consideration and effort into taking every shot. It made looking through the gallery a joy. My wife and I will have beautiful memories we can treasure forever. The quality of your work truly is exceptional so it came as no surprise when I learned that your work had been recognised by others through the awards you have won. I hope it goes without saying but I would not hesitate to use you again or recommend you to my colleagues, family and friends as THE lady with the lens.

Anesta Broad, was recommended to us by a friend. Aaron and I wanted a photographer that captured natural shots at all of the key points throughout the day/evening. Anesta was accompanied by Jay on our wedding day, they are both lovely and very friendly which makes all the difference. They were discrete and always on hand to help, whether it be to adjust a button hole or hold up my veil.

We have received our wedding album and wanted to say a massive thank you for capturing great moments on our special day. We love every picture you have taken and love how natural they are. Thank you also for being approachable and making us feel comfortable on the day. We now love to pose!!! Thanks again.

“We love, love, love the pictures!!! The hard part is picking just one picture for our ‘Thank You’ cards.  All of the guests that we’ve met since the wedding have complimented you and asked where I found you. We received your parcel today. Again you have blown us away, rather than just a memory stick, it was like a personal gift.  We thought we had the perfect day before we saw the photos, but they have captured the best day of our lives perfectly.  You’re a true professional and all our guests, would say also a true friend. Thank you so much from us all x.

Documentary Essex Wedding Photographer Anesta Broad Photography
Anesta recently photographed our wedding at Langton’s House, Hornchurch, in July. She was exactly what we were looking for. It was a very small wedding, only 15 guests in total and really wanted a relaxed intimate atmosphere with lots of natural shots. Anesta not only delivered on the photos but her fun, friendly personality meant we felt relaxed around her and it was like having another guest. She edited and provided the photos very quickly after the wedding, we would not hesitate in recommending Anesta and hope we can find an excuse to hire her again in the future!
— Jess & Nik
Amazing photos Anesta. I’d like to thank you too for being brilliant. Anybody who can keep my sister calm on her wedding day & and still capture every special moment is amazing. Thanks for a wonderful day, your professionalism was admirable and always done with that beautiful smile of yours. I can highly recommend Anesta. Her photos of my sister’s wedding were amazing. So many wonderful memories captured perfectly xx
— Michelle & John
Anesta, we can’t thank you enough for the amazing photos you took of our special day along with Jeremy Freedman. We wanted them taken in a particular style and you captured that perfectly, acting in a professional and friendly way throughout the whole experience. We had many special moments and thanks to you, they are moments we’ll never forget. We would have no hestiation in recommending you to anyone and everyone wanting great photos of their occasion to keep forever. A huge thank you from the new Mr & Mrs L.! x
— Caroline & Mads
Our photographer Anesta was fabulous, her and her assistant Jay were so inconspicuous that I worried they hadn’t got any photos, but when we got our album it was so perfect! We also got to have an engagement shoot which gave us an opportunity to feel comfortable in front of the camera which was invaluable for the day.
— Natalie & Shardarne
Anesta of Anesta Broad Photography was absolutely wonderful, listened to everything we asked for and delivered even more than we could have hoped for. Adam doesn’t love having his picture taken, so didn’t want our photo session to be too long. Anesta kept him engaged and got the best photos for us in a short space of time, before the groom had had enough. She captured the day perfectly and I would highly recommend her.
— Zoe & Adam
We were so excited to see these that we’ve accidentally stayed up until 2am looking at them! Thank you for doing such a fantastic job, and also for sending us so MANY photos, it must have been really hard work. Hopefully you’ll have time to put your feet up a little before Baby arrives.
— Rachael & Owen
Everyone who has seen the photos so far have said how fantastic they are. Everyone has shed a tear. Every time I look at them I get emotional.
— Nadia & Adam
Thank you for the photos.  We love them.  There are so many gorgeous ones.
— Jon & Carine
I would recommend Anesta to everyone. Anesta photographed our wedding and we are so pleased with our photos. Anesta was great on the day. My husband hates having his photo taken but Anesta made everyone feel at ease. She also paid a lot of attention to detail. She captured great shots of my flowers and shoes, etc. And the group shots were lovely. She managed to fit all of our request in.

I can highly recommend Anesta Broad Photography for her services. From the pre-wedding shoot, planning phone calls/meetings to the services on the day of our wedding; nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed the pre wedding shoot, wrapping up warmly and heading off to the park where my husband proposed. It was so cold, but Anesta made us forget the weather and we just enjoyed each others company. As for the photos of our wedding ... I can’t thank Anesta enough for all her hard work. She thought of so many creative ways to capture the big day that can’t stop admiring them. Even the rain didn’t dampen her enthusiasm and she thought of indoor options so we could still have the photos we wanted on the day just in a different location. Half of the getting ready photos I didn’t even realise were being taken. She was so unobtrustive and literally blended into the wedding party perfectly. We recently had the mammoth task of choosing our album photos and ended up with way more than we originally planned due to the amount of lovely photos to choose from! They captured our day perfectly and more importantly, they capture me and my husband at our happiest. Anesta’s photos are truly the most wonderful record of our day and I would not hesitate to recommend her. We can’t wait for the album now and are looking forward to booking her for more shoots and family events in the future. She feels like part of the family now!”
