Vicki is the best! She is so nice and full of energy. I had to find most of my venders over the phone because of my busy schedule planning my own wedding and all! When she called me back, she was full of life and had such a passion for her work. She was willing to work around my schedule and answered all my questions. The first time I got to meet her was for my engagement photos and she just had the best personality. I knew I made the right choice! She had great advice for photos and lots of feedback since I had never done this before. She was so easy to talk to and work with. The day of the wedding, she was on time, happy and I knew she was there for me. Everyone at the wedding was impressed with her and how she stayed on top of all the important details and seemed to be everywhere at once. She impressed everyone there and I had people coming to me all night and saying how great she was. Thank you Vicki for making my day awesome!

Vicki was a fabulous wedding photographer! We were coming to California for our wedding from out-of-state, and Vicki was extremely helpful during our phone conversations in the months leading up to the wedding. On the wedding day she arrived early, remembered everyone's name, and took photos in a timely manner. In addition, she's got a great personality and we had a lot of fun doing the shoot. We highly recommend her services.

Vicki was the best and so helpful throughout the wedding planning. Her personality is absolutely the best. She was our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. She made us feel so comfortable and allowed our personalities to shine through her photographs. We are so pleased with the outcome of our photos and the experience we had using her.

Vicki has been named our official photographer with any future photo sessions. I cannot wait to work with her again. I absolutely love her.

Thank you Vicki for making our day as special as it was :)

Vicki was an amazing photographer. She did our engagement photos as well as our wedding and she is so easy to work with. She has a way of making eveyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was so interactive with all of our family and friends during the pre-wedding events and during the wedding she was involved in everything. All of our family and guests loved her and how friendly she was and all the different shots she was taking. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and I would recommend her services to anyone.

Vicki was truly an angel. Her personality combined with her photography skills are quite the combo :) She has so much talent that is completely reflected in her pictures. She has a way about her that calms you and everyone else around her. Vicki truly was a blessing to have on our wedding day, and all our guests would not stop raving about her. She is the perfect photographer for any event, and I will definitely be using her again in the future.

Vicki was soooo unbelievably amazing throughout our entire wedding process. She was patient with us and was extremely flexible and helpful. Even though we had A LOT of changes to our wedding date and location she was STILL just as flexible and willing to work with us!! Her prices are AMAZING and her shots are BEYOND that!! She's such a beautiful person and was so happy to have her be at our wedding not only to shoot the wedding, but to also enjoy the day with us!! She is amazing!!! My husband and I are already talking about doing another wedding for when we renew our vows in a few years and as long as she's still shooting she's who we're calling FIRST!!!

Vicki was a GEM! She was so much fun to work with and everyone LOVED her. She is very reasonably priced and gives you so much of her time and attention. Many of the vendors limit their service to 4 hours or so. Vicki not only provided an engagement session and print as part of her package, she dedicated her entired day to our wedding. She was there from 2pm when we were getting ready until after we rang in the new year. She captured our entire evening and we couldn't be more pleased. We felt very comfortable with her and it was very much like we were working with a friend. The photo website was a hit as well! I appreciate very much that guests can go and view wedding photos and make their own private selections to purchase. Vicki captured many wonderful family photos of our guests too and they were very excited to see those. Chris and I have already dubbed Vicki "our photographer". She will definitely be our go to for any photo needs! Thank you soooooo much for being so wonderful, Vicki!

Vickie was great. Our engagement pictures were beautiful and even though I haven't seen our wedding pictures yet, I know they will be amazing. She is so nice and such a hard worker. She will get down and dirty to get that perfect picture. She also was never in anyones way or obstructing anyones view. I've been to wedings where the photographer stands right infront of people, she never did that. Ill update this once I see my pictures, if I remember. Oh, and the price is right!

Darling Photography was awesome. Vicki Agular was the photographer and she was wonderful. She was very professional and knew exactly what to shoot at the wedding to capture all the moments I wanted to remember from the wedding. She has great ideas for poses and worked quickly to get the pictures done efficiently so we could go enjoy the reception. Also, she was very accommodating when it came to traveling to my wedding venue (in San Diego!!!) and going to San Francisco to shoot our engagement sitting. What can I say...other than I was very satisfied with my wedding and engagement pictures and highly recommend Darling Photography! Thank you Vicki!

Vicky is ASMAZING, honestly AMAZING. She was willing and flexible. I have referred her multiple times since my wedding. Her packages were very reasonable priced, you pay for what you get, and she was worth every penny. A year after my wedding my father had passed away, I contact Vicky in hopes that I could receive the disc to my wedding so I could have every possible picture of my dad. I could not afford it at the time, yet Vicky did not hesitate to send it to me immediate as I made payments over the next few month. I am so lucky that I had her services for one of the most important days of my life!!

vicki on behalf of darling photography was sooooo fun to work with! I am so fortunate that I choose her to be my photographer- Vicki captured moments of my wedding that I will be looking at for the rest of my life and I could not be more thankful! Vicki was fun & easy to work with, very flexable, and generously affordable!!!!!! My wedding party is still talking about how good she was to this day!! My bridesmaids are planning to book her as their photographer in the upcomming year for their wedding (that should tell you something). I reccomend her as a photographer for any occasion! She also did my engagment photos, which I am also soooo happy with!!! Thank you!!!!

Vicky Aguilar of Darling Photography is someone I would love to use again for future milestones after marriage, either anniversay photos or family photos. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with as she covered all of the categories listed above exceptionally well! You are crazy not to have her on your big day.

There is no other way to explain my experince...VICKI AGUILAR AT DARLING PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE BEST!!!I have worked with many photographers, but none of them compared to her. Not only is her work amazing, she is a awesome to work with. I could always get in touch with her when I needed to, she would offer any advice I needed, and was very freindly. On the day of my wedding as all brides know, I was stressed out, Vicki would take time to talk with me and calm me down reassuring me that everything would be perfect...Thanks to her and her assistant Dori, it was perfect. I will hire her for any other occasion that I need a photographer and will recommed her to everybody that is getting married, family photos and or senior photos. She made my wedding day complete....and our photos don't hold a candle to any other wedding photos I have seen. Darling Photography is THE BEST choice by far. I could never thank Vicki enough for capturing the once in a life time photos of the day I have always dreamt of.

Absolutely, the BEST photographer ever!!!!! Vicki did our wedding last year in Moaning Cavern and our reception at the Hotel Leger. We loved her. She is extremely affordable. She took wonderful photographs and satisfied all of my requests including taking couple shots of each couple who attended our wedding. We also received the digital images in our package which is an awesome benefit. We plan to return to her many times in the future to take our family portraits, and any other reason I can find to get her to take more photos. She is soooo nice, its like having a family member take your photos. I can't praise or recommend her enough!!!! Really, you WONT be disappointed!!!! She is AMAZING!!!!
