Daniels work truly speaks for itself! We hired Darkershadesofbrown to photograph our wedding, and we could not be more thrilled with our photos. In addition to the many amazing photos of our big day, Daniel and his second shooter were a joy to be around. It's nice when your photographer feels more like a friend than cold paparazzi on your wedding day. Highly recommend Daniel!

When I first met Daniel I was really excited about our engagement and wedding photos with him. The engagement session went great and I really liked the pictures. After that, everything went downhill. Daniel friended me on facebook (personal page, BEFORE my wedding) and starting posting strong opinions about weddings, brides, and other hot topics such as politics and religion, making me feel uncomfortable at times. In my opinion, not very professional. When the big day came he showed up in cargo pants, standing out like a sore thumb at my formal wedding. The whole night I constantly felt as if I needed to please him as he was unhappy with the photography rules at my church and unhappy with my choice of DJ. I almost felt as if he was the star of the show and my husband and I were second. When the night ended I looked around for Daniel to say goodbye...but he was nowhere to be found. I have no idea when he left as the party ended not even five minutes after the scheduled time. Who knows when he actually packed up and went, but a goodbye would have been appreciated. Nights over. Im holding on to the fact that I like his pictures and that will make everything ok. Over 9 weeks later (Which is totally ok according to our contract) our pictures were up on his website. No joke, I think I cried for 3 hours. Not to say the pictures were bad (I actually grew to really like a lot of them), I think I just had higher expectations for them. The Darkershadesofbrown website shows plenty of super creative, gorgeous photos of brides that I just felt I was missing. I spent money on a beautiful cathedral length veil that I ended up not having any professional pictures of. I chose Daniel because I loved and appreciated his style of photography, however, I felt he kind of slacked on my wedding day due to a bad mood he was in. Overall, I would be lying to say I didn't love a lot of my wedding pictures. I only wish I felt more comfortable and important on my wedding day.

My husband and I were both in a wedding that Darkershadesofbrown Photography photographed two years ago and when we got engaged we knew there was only one person we wanted to work with. He worked with us for both our wedding and our engagement photos and we could not be happier. Our engagement photos were taken in New York and Daniel came down to meet us for the day. Daniel was one of the best decisions we made in regards to our wedding. Our photography is simply stunning and we could not be happier.

Still wiping away the tears after viewing the BEAUTIFUL images of our special day.

We had the pleasure of working with Daniel who immediately put us at ease. It's wonderful to work with a photographer who knows the venue Skytop Lodge so well. He maximized our time together, ensuring that we got the images that were important to us as well as the ones he knew would be priceless. We even had time to be whisked off to take advantage of the gorgeous day and get some shots in a contrasting down the rod in Buck Hill. His emphasis on genuine emotion, rather than just environment is what truly sets Daniel apart from so many other wedding photographers. The photographs perfectly capture how happy we were.

Thank you, Daniel for giving us such cherished images!

We came across Daniel's amazing work serendipitously- we were weeks away from our wedding and needed a new photographer. After we explained our horrific story with the original photographer we had hired, he went above and beyond and acted more like a great old friend. AND gave us some amazing, inspiring pictures ! On top of all the already amazing things he did for us, he was able to help work within our budget, despite the fact that his expertise and time were worth so much more.

We most definitely reccommend working with Daniel and we can't wait for another reason to work with him in the future! Thanks again, Daniel!

After waiting over 14 weeks for our wedding photos, we finally receive an envelope with a DVD and a refund check. There was no phone call, letter or explanation for the refund. I later received an email from Daniel, explaining he had supposedly used a corrupt memory card and some of the photos were lost. “Some” is an understatement. We did not receive any prewedding photos, wedding party photos, ceremony photos, family portraits, bride portraits, groom portraits… We have four photos of my husband and I posing and a bunch of reception photos. We are so sad. We had such a beautiful day and barely anything to document it. We understand that some things are out of anyone’s control, but we thought that by choosing a more expensive photographer, we would get quality, professionalism and “peace-of mind.”
We are especially disappointed that Daniel did not call us to explain or apologize and he waited so long to tell us. We felt as if he washed his hands of the situation by mailing a check… We didn’t want our money back, we wanted wedding photos! After several attempts, we were finally able to speak with him on the phone. He made no attempt to make this right. He didn’t even offer a session to “re-do” some photos or complimentary prints. As if our money back was enough!
Daniel may get high ratings when everything goes as planned, but a true measure of character and professionalism is best evaluated in less than perfect circumstances.

One of the best decisions we made about our wedding was our wedding photographer. Daniel was a pleasure to work with and took us to NY City for our engagement session which was a big deal for us because that is where we met. On the wedding day he fit in perfectly with our wedding party and everybody for months told us about how incredible our pictures were. I can't say enough about Daniel and his photography. We will have these pictures for a lifetime and we are so glad we choose Darkershadesofbrown Photography to capture our wedding.

My husband and I knew Darker Shades of Brown was the right choice for our wedding photography the first time we met Daniel. He took the time to meet with us, get to know us, and explain all about what he does. We felt comfortable immediately and couldn't wait to work with him. Daniel was super flexible when we suggested having our engagement session out of town as well as rescheduling due to rain. By the time our wedding day arrived, we felt like he was a guest at our wedding and not a vendor. Daniel made us feel confident in front of the camera and we truly had so much fun shooting with him. In fact, we are looking forward to doing a Trash the Dress session! As for the photos, they speak for themselves. No matter how many times we look at them we are astonished at how Daniel and his assistant Brian were able to capture our relationship and personalities. We couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Darker Shades of Brown and are thankful to have made such a great friendship. Thanks again for the memories!

Daniel had been the photographer at our friends' wedding a few years back and when I saw their wedding pictures I immediately fell in love with his work. I made sure to follow Daniel and the company because I knew that if I got married one day he would be a top contender for my photographer.

When I got engaged and started to look at vendors I brought my fiance to meet Daniel and upon leaving that meeting my fiance said that he didn't want anyone else to take our wedding photos. It was Darkershadesofbrown or BUST!

We had our engagement session with Daniel in October and it was a lot of fun. Daniel is so creative and has the knowledge of so many unique locations where you can have your photos done. Working with him is so much nicer than being stuck in a studio with the same old backdrops. We absolutely LOVED our photos and look forward to Daniel being our photographer on our wedding day in June. I know he will give us amazing photos to share with our family and friends for the rest of our lives.

I will definitely recommend Daniel and Darkershadesofbrown to everyone and continue to use him as a photographer for all of our special moments throughout our lives.

My husband and I chose based on style and charisma. It was really important to us that Daniel considers his work to be an investment and it showed how much detail he would be putting into our wedding. We valued his authenticity and the importance placed on US being in charge. Price was important in the aspect that we had a budget that we had to stick to. His adaptability the day of made our whole wedding absolutely fabulous. It was definitely the best day of our lives and I'm so thankful for all of the special moments he caught without us knowing.

From the day we contacted Darkershadesofbrown Photography, I was amazed at the immediacy of the responses we received and the attention that was given to our many questions. Daniel and his team understood the type of photography we wanted to capture our special day, and delivered on our vision. As someone who is very uncomfortable in front of a camera, I was surprised at the ease with which I was able to be myself during our engagement photo session. I quickly realized it was because of Daniel's...je ne sais quoi...that something about him I can't put my finger on. If you want traditional wedding photos, Darkershadesofbrown can certainly deliver. But it would be a shame to waste Daniel's creative mind. Every "out-of-the-box" idea we had, Daniel built on. It's easy to find a photographer who churns out the same cookie-cutter product, as so many wedding vendors do. But we look back at our wedding photos and actually feel the pure joy of that day, not just a posing bride and groom. It poured rain on our wedding day, and everyone tells me the photos are some of the most powerful they have ever seen. Moreover, I am writing this review on the brand new iPad loaded with our wedding photos that Darkershadesofbrown sent us in lieu of a printed album (our choice). Daniel and his team have a true passion for art, and their medium is photography. That is what sets them apart. We will certainly be using Darker Shades of Brown Photography for our next big life event.

We knew we made the right decision with Darker Shades of Brown right from the start. Daniel met with us personally a day after I first contacted him and explained his services to us. Daniel was very personable and made himself available when we needed to get in contact with him. Our engagement pictures as well as wedding pictures came out beautifully, Daniel and his assistant were very thorough yet unobtrusive which was just what we wanted! Turn around time for the photos was very fast, especially during the busy wedding season! We would whole heartedly recommend Darker Shades of Brown to friends and family!

We knew as soon as we met Daniel that we had made the right choice with Darker Shades of Brown Photography for our special day. Right off the bat, Dan explained to us the whole process and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Daniel was very flexible in scheduling our engagement pictures, and the turn around time was very fast. Daniel and his assistant were fabulous for our wedding day! They were very unobtrusive yet very professional, they kept things moving in the Church and respected our schedule. Our pictures came out just as we had hoped! Daniel was always very responsive in our communication, and still is.. months after our wedding. In our opinion, there is no number that can measure the quality, creativity, experience and love that Darker Shades of Brown puts into their photographs. We just consider ourselves lucky we got to work with them!

Daniel Lanton of Darkershadesofbrown Photography shot our engagement session in October of 2011. He is scheduled to shoot our wedding on May 25th, 2013. We were very impressed with Daniel. He was very professional and made us feel at ease while he was shooting our pictures. He was full of great ideas for sites to have our pictures taken. Our engagement pictures came out amazing and beautiful, and we have received so many compliments on them. The process to order prints of our engagement pictures was very simple and was quite affordable. We are so glad we chose to go with Darkershadesofbrown to shoot our engagement session and wedding. We are looking forward to Daniel and Darkershadesofbrown Photography shooting our wedding in May. If our engagement pictures are any indication of how our wedding pictures will come out, I am sure they will be equally as stunning!!!

I looked at several other photographers in the area before meeting and choosing Darker Shades of Brown photography to capture our wedding day. I know that pictures are the one part of the day that last the longest, so I wanted quality photos, but didn't want to feel like I was being taken advantage of with the pricetag. Daniel's costs are worth every penny and you get what you pay for.

The entire bridal party enjoyed working with him and he was great at capturing candid shots, which I love. Several people mentioned that they didn't even notice that a photographer was there, which is what I wanted. There's nothing more bothersome than feeling like you've hired a paparazzi instead of a wedding photographer!

In my opinion, Daniel was an excellent choice and I'm happy I chose him to capture our big day!

We had the opportunity to work with Darkershadesofbrown Photography for our engagement and wedding pictures. While living in Florida and planning a wedding in Pennsylvania was difficult due to the distance, working with Daniel made everything a little bit easier. He was extremely flexible and easy to work with. He communicated effectively and did everything he was able to do to meet our needs. We were so pleased at how our wedding pictures told the story of our day. After your wedding is over, the only thing you have left of your day is the pictures and the wonderful memories. When we look back at our pictures, we still get the same butterflies that we had that day. Daniel's and Bryan's ability to capture emotion is such a gift and I am so thankful for their hard work in providing us with these tangible memories.

Daniel, choosing you to photograph our wedding was easily the best vendor decision we made while planning. You truly captured the essence of our wedding and, more importantly, you captured us. You worked tirelessly to capture countless moments with an accommodating, easygoing grace. We will never forget and will be forever thankful for your dedication in making our day special because we know you missed Indie's journey home from the hospital so you could be with us. You have a gift for taking ordinary moments and giving them an artistic flair. We are amazed at the level of detail you gave to each and every shot. You are the only photographer I trust to capture memories as our family grows.

Beyond your talent, you're just a great guy. It also doesn't hurt that you like good music! Thank you Daniel!

Photography by Darker Shades of Brown is art. They captured special moments in a way to make then timeless. Daniel's images are crisp and tell a story. It's what you want. Someone who can capture a moment that happens so quickly in a photograph that will be timeless. Anyone can take a picture but it takes talent to compose it in such a flattering way that it produces a flutter of emotion every time you see that image. Daniel did just that for our wedding and engagement photos.

Daniel has a gift of not just taking pictures, but building relationships with his clients. This is key for everyone to be comfortable since the photographer is with you about 12 hrs that day. He works seamlessly around you during the event and manages to capture amazing moments.

Photography was of the three things that had to
be perfect for our wedding. No compromise.

I looked at about 100 websites/vendors and interviewed 10 photographers. And when I thought I had the one, I met Daniel. Central park flowers (Olyphant, PA) recommended I take a look. At this point, I had seen thousands of photos and knew what style I was going for. Daniel was perfect.

The art that Darkershadesofbrown is worth the price which is competitive to other photography companies. I actually had them travel for our wedding in Boston (from Clarks Summit, PA). I found their quality of photos, customer service, and value was better than the vendors in Boston.
We hope to continue having Daniel capture our special moments for years to come despite where life takes us. He engaged us in the process of planning our wedding and the quality of his customer service leads his us to stick around for more.

Working with Daniel Lanton was one of the best experiences I have ever had. From the first time that I saw his work, I was determined to have him for my wedding photographer.

I was married in November of 2010, and although he was unavailable for the wedding day, I hired him to do a day after (trash the dress) session. At this point, this was not even in our budget but I HAD to have photos taken by Daniel.

Daniel drove all the way to the poconos to meet my husband and I, and it was as if we were old friends. We drove around and scouted the area for the best location (Daniel and his camera smushed into the back seat of our Dodge pickup, with a smile on his face the whole time) which was just another sign that Daniel was fully committed to providing the best photographs possible.

We found a location and began taking pictures. Daniel made the whole experience completely comfortable and tons of fun!

The experience of working with Daniel was exciting, fun, and definitely memorable, and the pictures that he took are beyond breathtaking. I KNEW they would be. It is almost four years later and people still talk about the pictures he took, and I still look at them regularly.

If you are looking for a true professional who will create photos that are unique and memorable, and that will capture exactly what most photographers miss, turn to Daniel. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.

Daniel was an amazing photographer. Take a look at his portfolio, and you will be amazed. From the first meeting, I knew he would be the one to capture my day. His style is very unique and personal. He and Bryan, his assistant, were a pleasure to work with, and were with us from early morning to night. We also our our engagement session with him, and were more than delighted with the pictures. He is WELL worth the price. Don't waste your money on 'run-of-the-mill' photogs with posed/boring shots. Capture your day with Daniel - you won't regret it!

Daniel was a true asset to our wedding. He was professional, personable and most of all, FUN to work with! Our day went off without a hitch, and Daniel captured every important (no matter how small) moment. Looking at a photo even now, I can recall the exact moment or place when it was taken. The smiles, laughter, tears and joy were all beautifully captured for us and our family to enjoy each day...and for many years to come.

On a more 'routine' review side, booking with Daniel was easy and hassle free. I'm glad we booked early! Our e-session was rescheduled a few times due to weather, and it was never a problem or hassle. Daniel was easily reachable via email (my preferred contact) at all times. The day of the wedding he arrived at the salon and stayed the whole day into the evening. We truly did not notice Daniel or his assistant most of the day, which (in the nicest way) was great! They were respectful during our traditional church ceremony as well. All of our images were received within the timeline, and ordering was easy and cost effective.

Daniel is extremely personable, and even sat down for dinner with my family along with his wife after our e-session (which was a blast by the way). We truly could not be happier with our choice to use DSB and the experience we had with them. Looking forward to a family session in the years to come!

DarkerShadesOfBrown was absolutely amazing to work with. Daniel's photos are by far the best the in area. His package was simple and easy to understand unlike some other photographers. He was able to be with us all day instead of limited hours, which we loved because every detail of our day was captured. There was a great mix of traditional and artist photographs. Some family members even have some of our wedding details up in their homes as artwork.

Daniel was always available to discuss anything with us. It was super simple to schedule our engagement session and he was able to meet all our requests. I believe we were the first couple he had who wanted photos with a car. We had some difficulty with other vendors and Daniel was super helpful with recommending replacements, who ended up being just as awesomely talented as him.

We are currently expecting our first child and I trust no one but Daniel to take amazing photos our little one. We will use him for all our photos in the future.

I found Darker Shades of Brown completely by accident and consider myself extremely lucky to have found him. After months of searching for a wedding photographer in the Pocono area, I stumbled upon his website. As I looked through his online galleries, I had a feeling that this was the photographer I wanted and sent up a prayer that he was available. After talking with Daniel I knew my gut feeling was right and we were lucky enough to be able to work with Daniel for our wedding in Sept 2010. Daniel was amazing to work with. He was answered all my questions, responded promptly, and went above and beyond in every aspect of photographing our engagement session and wedding. Our engagement and wedding photos exceeded all my expectations. They are simply AMAZING. I get chills every time I look at them and am instantly transported back to our wedding day. Everyone looks amazing in every photograph and he captured the little details and emotional moments that made our wedding special. We are so grateful to have had him photograph our wedding. I can not wait to share my wedding photos with my children and grandchildren. I would highly recommend Darker Shades of Brown to anyone and hope to work with Daniel again in the future.

Daniel is a true artist when it comes to photography. He was able to capture all the love we feel in person and put it in a picture we can cherish forever. He did our engagement and wedding pictures and can't wait for him to follow up with a family session this spring of us with our three little girls. He is the type of person you will keep calling throughout your life to capture those priceless moments so you can have them forever. I know I will keep his number close by! I highly recommend Daniel's unique work, reliability, and professionalism to anyone looking for a photographer to trust with your wedding or any occasion you hold close to your heart.

Daniel and his crew were absolutely amazing, and the best money I spent on our wedding. From start to finish working w Daniel was fun , refreshing, and stress free. Everyone who see's our pictures are blown away and jealous. We did both an engagement session and trash the dress session, and each was like a seperate party. We had so much fun and Daniel made us so comfortable. I am not one to like to haven picture taken so I was surprised by how comfortable Daniel was able to make me.. My only regret is that I can't have Daniel take all of my pictures for every event and for every day I want a picture of . When ever I hear someone needs a photographer I tell them if they can get on Daniels schedule , it will be the best decision they could make.

Daniel did our wedding almost 4 years ago now, and people still comment on how wonderful our pictures are. Since we've been married both my husband and I have had the opportunity to participate in friends' weddings... We got a chance to compare. Daniel has a creative soul. You can't pose that. He sees the beauty in every day moments and captures them perfectly. Some of my favorite pictures are actually of me getting ready before makeup. Daniel is very easy to work with; lots of fun, and insightful too.
