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.

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!

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.

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.
