At the urging of a college professor and after having bought his first camera in 1975, Tom Wojcik pursued his interest in photography through courses and an apprenticeship. Now, with more than twenty five years experience, he and his wife, Shirley, enjoy "capturing pieces of history" through their Point Pleasant photography business, Essence Photography and Video.
Established in 1985, Essence Photography and Video specializes in weddings and offers a full line of photo and video services. Tom and Shirley pride themselves on the limitless choices and options that Essence is able to provide to its customers. "Fixed wedding packages are not our thing" they state. They work with each individual client to determine their needs and then tailor their services to meet those needs. Every detail is planned out with the client, especially if the client is a bride-to-be.
There are no surprises with Essence.

Tom and Shirley cherish the thought of their work being "frozen in time and enjoyed by future generations." They enjoy working with people during the happy times in their lives, whether it be their wedding or the birth of a child. Treating their customers the way they would hope to be treated during these specials times is the essence of their customer service philosophy. And, they just love "being able to record lasting images that people will enjoy through the years."
