We would highly recommend Chris Darnall if you are looking for a photographer for any major life event. Not only is Chris really talented at what he does but he is a likable guy which is icing on the cake when you are spending several hours together during an event such as a wedding . We used Chris for our engagement and wedding pictures and were very pleased with the results. He seemed to get us as a couple so the poses and types of pictures fit our personalities. (nothing cheesy). On our wedding day he captured all of the standard shots you want from a wedding but also got some really special candid shots which a Bride is typically hoping for. He offers competitive packages and is fairly priced. I thought we got a lot of value in our investment in Darnall Photography.

Chris Darnall is Amazing! He was recommended by my cousin who photographed her wedding. We were having a hard tome finding the right photographer. We met with Chris and we LOVED his photos and his attention to detail. We booked him within the same week we meet. He did both our engagement and wedding photos. Photos were great and he was very easy to get along with. We felt so comfortable with him and his crew. He is professional but so laid back. He is a professional you can trust. His quality of work is great! Photos were clear and beautiful. You will not be disappointed with Darnall Photography. His prices are great for what you get! I would recommend Darnall to anyone and everyone! I'm so thankful to him and everyone who made this day so special! I'm in love with my Photos!!

Chris was amazing for our wedding! From the moment we met him he made us feel extremely comfortable which made for awesome photos for both our engagement shoot and wedding day. He even helped us pick areas for our shoots that we never would've thought to use. Even when the weather was terrible he still made it happen and the pictures looked as if the weather was perfect. We would highly recommend him for any occasion.

Chris shot our engagement and wedding in 2014 in Southern California. After interviewing a few photographers, and looking at their work, Chris matched what we had envisioned. He listened and understood the types of moments we wanted captured. Chris was passionate, professional, easy to work with, and had creative and awesome photo ideas. More importantly, he helped my husband and I feel comfortable and relaxed. We did not want stiff, posed photos and Chris did a great job at directing us, making us laugh and feel at ease.
Awesome job Chris and thank you for all the wonderful moments you captured for us! We would highly recommend him!

Chris came highly recommended to us from a friend from work. After meeting with him, my husband and I knew we would work well with him. He showed us some of his work and that sealed the deal. We had both our engagement shots and wedding photos done by him. Chris was very accommodating with our engagement shoot as we had to reschedule a couple times. He had great ideas on where the best pictures would turn out with the lighting/backgrounds and we loved the final shots. After taking those photos, we knew he would take great photos on our wedding day and that he would be easy to work with.
Chris was responsive to all of my emails leading up to the wedding. He even met up with me prior to our big day and we walked around looking for the best places near my venue for our first look, group shots, and family shots. On our wedding day, Chris was very professional. He kept me relaxed and was able to get every shot that I wanted and then some prior to the wedding start. Throughout the night he was present and worked so hard to get the best shots but wasn't occupying all of our time. He allowed us to enjoy our guests and stole us away for just a brief time to get some couple's photos. The final photos were AMAZING. I have looked thorough them many times and am perplexed on how I will be able to select the perfect ones for my album since there are so many to choose from.

I dont like to bash people on the internet but this every womens dream day for her to shine. Reason I added this comment is becasue I would hate for anothers Brides and Grooms special day to get ruined when they see the photos. This moment is once in a lifetime and can never be replaced. I picked Darnall photography because he was voted one of the best on this website and was a nice person. I thought how could this go wrong. The 1.7 is becasue his assistiant did an amazing job.

Make sure Chris knows the venue. Its a shame to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for a beautiful venue and not have ANY pictures of it. Also have a shot list put together becasue he will not tell you and the group how to pose. Make sure to ask him to take photos with your families. I dont have ANY with my family. That hurt the most!
I contacted Chris directly and let him know my concerns. He replied with, sorry you feel that way, which is not sincere at all. He already has my money and the wedding has passed so why would he care.

We hired Darnall Photography for our wedding after we did our engagement photos with them. We were blown out of the water with the shots he captured. He had great suggestions for places to take the photographs, had a great eye, and he not only got great posed pictures but captured a lot of great candid photos. Chris was very easy to work with, quick to respond to my emails , and a very nice guy. I've been to weddings where the photographers had no personality, and were just demanding. Chris was the opposite, he was still able to get the shots we wanted, but also allowed us to have fun in the process. A definite perk!

We really felt Chris and his team not only provided valuable pictures we will treasure for a lifetime,but his pictures really told a story of every aspect of our day. It wasn't just a wedding it was a story of love, family and true happiness that we shared with everyone that day. We would recommend Chris highly to anyone looking for a photographer that can really capture the true meaning of what a wedding is all about.

Chris and his team did an amazing job at our wedding. They were on time, flexible, and very professional. The team was very patient and calm throughout the whole process and did a great job dealing with our large families and the stress of the day. Not once did I feel rushed while taking all the phones. They provided amazing shoots and really did a great job at capturing all the love we were feeling on our special day. I would not hesitate to use his services again and again.

Darnall was absolutely wonderful! We missed our engagement pictures by accident and he quickly rescheduled and got our photos to us within a day or two. Similarly, he took gorgeous pictures the day of the wedding and sent us teaser shots within a day or two. He worked wonderfully with our videographer and all the guests commented and how easy-going and kind they both were.
