Darling Photographers is an enthusiastic team of photographers that include "Darling" herself. Darling - The lead photographer of Darling Photographers has been a photographer for 11 years and has an amazing team of photographers working with her; including her husband Vic [a photographer for 15 years]. Together we have traveled all over the U.S. Europe, Caribbean, South and Central America covering the most fun, and beautiful weddings.
Many of my wonderful clients ask why I do what I do? It is hard to articulate in words the feelings and moments I get to be a part of. I cannot thank my couples enough to trust me with the most important day in their lives - Their Wedding Day -. I have photographed every type of genre of photography there is, but nothing brings me more joy than to be a part of the "beginning' of a love story.

Wedding Photography to me is the hardest type of photography there is. Our couples spend months or years planning their beautiful day not to mention the finances. We invest ourselves in every story and get to know you better before we even show up to your wedding. We know that we have "one" chance to get this right. There is only one walking down the aisle in-front of your loved ones, there is only one exchange of rings, first kiss as husband and wife, one first dance, and so many firsts - Hire a professional... Your images are worth it!

Darling Photographers was the best decision my brother and new sister did. I referred her and the photos are everything and more we hoped for. The quality, the attention to detail, the amazing person the Darling Photographer team was, and their personalities were perfect. I would recommend them hands down...

They were even my photographers at my weddings 10 years ago so I am definitely a fan!!!

When it came to planning my wedding, my number one priority was the photography. I am obsessed with photos and capturing memories so I wanted nothing but the best on my wedding day! I knew immediately during my first meeting with Darling Photographers that this was exactly what I was looking for! From the absolutely stunning portfolios, attention to detail and beautiful, bubbly personalities, they had it all!! I am not photogenic and I get very camera shy, but all of that went away within minutes of shooting with this team. Starting at the engagement session they made me feel so beautiful and confident in front of that camera and it was such an amazing experience. Darling was fun, energenic, bubbly and made us feel fabulous! Not to mention the photos were beyond beautiful and everyone in my family was so blown away with the high quality and artistic beauty to them all. The wedding day was equally perfect! I had an overwhelming amount of detail to my wedding and they were able to capture every single thing! Every detail, every moment, everything! I cried looking through their lovely work because I was able to relive my wedding day and enjoy every moment of it all over again! They captured moments that I didn't even realize were being photographed. My wedding party adored the photographers and had so much fun with them throughout the entire day. The groomsmen especially are typically a shy group but looking through my album you would never know! They had an absolute blast and these photographer truly brought out the best in them - I love it! I could go on and on forever about how absolutely perfect everything turned out and don't have a single negative thing to say. If your lucky enough to come across Darling Photographers in your search for a photographer, look no more! I promise you won't be disappointed and that they provide everything a bride could ever want or need on their big day!

We had a GREAT experience working with Darling at our wedding. She was very easy to work with and made us very comfortable. From the beginning, she was always interested in us as a couple, which meant a lot to us. She always had our best interest in mind but also provided good suggestions when we needed help. On the day of, she was very professional and took charge of the whole day. She got the pictures that we requested and was very organized!!! Nothing seemed to take too long, but we still got all of the pictures we wanted. We didn't even notice her and the assistants at the reception!!! When it was time for them to leave they quietly came up to me and my husband and parents to say goodbye. The pictures that we received are just breathtaking- I still look at our wedding pictures weekly if not more. The album is also beautiful and will last forever. Thank you Darling and the assistants you captured our day exactly the way we wanted!!

Darling. Is. Phenomenal.

Unbelievable.

I told my fiancé at the time we were looking for a photographer, that I wanted wedding photos that were timeless. Photos that captured moments. I knew immediately that Darling was the photographer I wanted. Have you seen that portfolio?! I mean c'mon.

Right from the get go she was a joy to work with. Extremely personable and willing to answer any questions (sometimes more than once) that I had.

On the day of the wedding she made my fiancé and I feel exactly the way we wanted to feel - like the day was about us. She was so enthusiastic and fun, and got the family pictures done smoothly and quickly. She went beyond either of our expectations for a photographer.

About half way through our reception, we were called out near a fountain outside. To our surprise, Darling and her assistant had set up a night time photo shoot for us! She got pictures with us under the Blue Moon that we had that night. Unbelievable.

At the reception she was never in the way, but always capturing moments. When we asked for a specific shot with someone or something, she was always enthusiastic and accommodating.

She was in no small part, a reason why our day was perfect. In all sincerity, if she is available, book her. Just freaking book her. You will not regret it for an instant. And you will have captured the first day of your lives together with one of the best photographers I have ever seen.

Darling and Victor Paumen of Darling Photographers did an AMAZING job capturing the special moments of our wedding day BEAUTIFULLY! I met Darling at a wedding expo BEFORE I became engaged and vowed that I would book her immediately when the time came to plan my big day. While viewing Darling's albums I noticed that each and every photo was classic, timeless and amazingly beautiful. I'm pretty decisive and knew Darling Photography was the photographer of choice...that's right, I didn't search other photographers or price compare, although the packages are competitively priced. Besides the amazing photography, Darling has a great personality and lots of energy and knew how to put everyone at ease during the wedding day. She took so many great photos that my husband and I view them often to relive our wedding day. Many of the best photos were candids of my husband and I in the moment; exchanging looks, embracing and interacting with guests. We received so many compliments in regards to the beauty of our photos and the professionalism displayed by Darling and Victor during the wedding. I referred one of my best friends who became engaged to Darling Photographers and she booked as well! My husband and I are currently selecting photos for design of a custom wedding album, courtesy of Darling Photographers! BOOK NOW, you will not be disappointed with Darling Photographers!

From the moment I met Darling, I knew she would be my photographer. She has the greatest most positive demeanor and it comes through in her photography. Throughout the planning process, Darling was extremely professional and responsive. She provided me fantastic advice all along the way, even recommending a great baker.

On the day of my wedding, she and her husband Victor were right on time. It was so nice to have both of them as Victor went to shoot pictures of the boys getting ready, while Darling stayed behind to take pictures of the girls. They were also able to shots from various angles throughout the ceremony, portrait session and reception. Every detail that I had planned meticulously was photographed perfectly. I also loved the fact that the overall feeling of the wedding comes through in the pictures, from the somber emotional ceremony to the celebratory joy of the reception.

If that weren't enough, the link to our pictures was complete in two weeks - unheard of. They are so beautiful, and I will treasure them always. I highly recommend Darling Photographers for any occasion.

We were so happy with Darling Photographers! Darling was so easy to work with and you can tell that she really loves her job. We did not meet Darling until the day of our wedding but her personality is so warm that we immediately felt very comfortable with her. I really wanted to take pictures somewhere close to our wedding venue but that also had trees with pretty fall colors. I'm not from DC, so I did not have any particular spots in mind for pictures. Darling found the perfect little park right by our wedding venue and she really made the most of the fall colors.

We got our pictures back in 2.5 weeks even though Darling estimated it would take 4-6. And we got a lot more images than she promised as well, which was great. Their prices seemed reasonable compared to what a lot of wedding photographers charge, especially considering how beautiful our pictures were. I could not be happier with the way the pictures turned out!
