ENGAGEMENT SHOOT
SMALL BUSINESS BRANDING
“Emma and Shelagh were great to work with! They made it simple by guiding us through each pose and brought great energy to the shoot. They even let us involve our pup in some pictures. 10/10 recommend! "
"ESM Creative Studio partnered with us to build a beautiful website and logo that presents our business in a professional manner. Combining photography and graphic design in one offering enabled them to move fast and give us everything we needed to get started – logo, website, business cards – without having to engage with multiple service provides. We look forward to working with ESM Studios for future needs. We strongly recommend them to medium-sized businesses looking for professional content without big firm prices and lead times!!"

FINE ARTWORK PHOTOGRAPHY
“Emma and Shelagh were delightful! They took very professional photos of a fine art painting for me. I was able to share these photos with Bonhams in London for appraisal of my piece, and they gave Bonhams and 'excellent idea' of the painting and it's authenticity. Quite pleased!"
