Darrell and Kristen were incredible. Not only were they there for us as photographers but felt a part of the family day. Kristen kept me calm in the bridal suite and they ensured that with two people they got every shot we outlined and so many candid ones too. The flat fee is great and we didn't have to shop around. Highly highly recommend for any event.

Darrell and Kristin are simply THE BEST! We are SO happy we booked them as our wedding photographers. We were initially drawn to them because of their straightforward pricing package and the natural, candid style of their photos. We really clicked with them during our consultation and knew they were going to be amazing! Our engagement shoot was so much fun and we felt like we really got to know them, which made their presence on our wedding day that much better. It truly felt like they were family - they helped keep everyone calm and upbeat when we were getting ready and then they were right there with us having a blast on the dance floor! The photos they took are absolutely INCREDIBLE! They perfectly captured so many memories of our big day and didn't miss a single moment - we couldn't be more pleased with the way the pictures turned out. THANK YOU DARRELL MCDAVID PHOTOGRAPHY!!!

We were referred to Darrell and Kristin by a friend were such a pleasure to work with! We were very impressed by their level of professionalism, organization, and promptness with their responses and returning our edited wedding photos!

On the day of the wedding, they were a pleasure to have spend our special day with us. They even go above and beyond their photographer duties helping out in little ways they can- carry bags, shoes, etc. They understand they need to be a team not just with us, but even with our other vendors and do everything they can to keep your day running smoothly. Once it was time for formals and group photos, they work quickly to ensure you're not wasting precious reception time posing for photos.

Post-production was great, too. We waited a month after the wedding to take our honeymoon and when we came back, our pictures were waiting for us!

Thanks again for helping make our wedding a memorable one!!

Darrell and his wife Kristin did a wonderful job with my wedding photography. They always responded to any questions I had, and were very organized the day of the wedding with getting formal pictures taken care of with different groups of family members. They photographed the entire day from getting my hair done to the end of the reception and were very accommodating to try and get specific shots that I had requested. They even had a sneek peek of the photos up on their blog 2 days after the wedding. The engagement shoot that was included in the package was an added bonus.

Darrell & Kristin were such a great team to work with! They traveled 5 hours for us since we live in Maryland but got married in our home state of West Virginia. We could have picked photographers from WV but we just couldn't pass up working with this husband & wife team who were so great to work with from day 1 (and their prices are great)! My husband and I were SO impressed with them and are so grateful that we found them to photograph our big day. We both heard lots of good comments about Darrell and Kristin from our friends and family and every time I looked around they were there - such troopers the entire day! Not once did I think "I wish the photographers were around to capture this" because they already were! As everyone told me, the day was an absolute blur of excitement so we are SO THANKFUL that they captured our day with such amazing pictures. I will recommend Darrell & Kristin to all my friends getting married - one has already decided to use them for their wedding and the engagement pictures she just received are beautiful!

Darrell and Kristin, what can I say...Great people! Great photography business! If you haven't selected a photographer, don't look any further. They are so awesome and organized. Kristin is so detailed and always add that touch to remind you - You Are Getting Married! Darrel is so relaxing and easy to work with. You forget you are being photographed. The day of our wedding I wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else.

I found Darrell and Kristin through one of many internet searches for a wedding photographer. I was initially drawn to their simple package and pricing system. It was so straightforward and easy to understand! After meeting with them, I knew I had made the right choice. Not only are they great photographers, but they are great people too! We felt so comfortable around them- we could have sat and chatted with them all day! After the initial meeting, my husband and I were really excited to work with them. We were not disappointed! They are so accommodating and really want to make sure that you are happy. They even put up with (and were extremely patient with) our three crazy dogs at the engagement shoot. We were really happy with the engagement pictures and were even happier with the pictures from the wedding. They managed to capture everything moment perfectly. It really helps that there are two photographers. They really didn't miss anything. We were shocked at how many moments they captured with the guests, that we had missed at the time. We really feel that we could not have made a better decision!

I don't think that I will ever be able to truly describe the incredible services of Darrel McDavid Photography. Just like any other soon-to-be bride, I poured over tons of wedding magazines and online showcases of wedding photographs, trying to figure out how I wanted to remember my wedding day. I sat down with my fiance and we made a list of all the important things we wanted, special pictures, etc. Keep in mind, my now husband cannot stand getting his picture taken.
Darrell and Kristin sat down with us and discussed everything, down to the tiniest details, of our wedding day. They wanted to know everything and wanted us to be comfortable. My husband really liked their work, so I was happy they were able to take us on as clients.
First, we did our engagement session in March, 2012. Darrell and Kristin knew that we wanted to go someplace special (ideally a garden setting) and they did some research and helped us to find the perfect venue for our engagement photos. We ended up having a nearly two-hour session. The photos we have are absolutely stunning. My husband (again, one who doesn't like to have his picture taken) was really very pleased. We knew we had made the right choice for our photography needs on our special day.
In the weeks leading up to our wedding, my husband and I compiled a list (and a long list at that) of the photos we wanted. I partnered with my wedding venue's coordinator as to ideal locations and what photos we wanted. We decided to do a "First Look" in order to get more time for photos the day of the wedding (something I highly recommend - we never had to rush!).
The day of the wedding does go all too quickly, but Darrell and Kristin made sure that every single photo, every single special location at the venue, every detail was taken care of. They stayed with us the ENTIRE DAY!!! Ultimately, the photos we have are simply amazing and Darrell and Kristin are always the consummate professionals.

Darrell and Kristen were a pleasure to work with - from the inquiry process all the way to the post wedding product. First- like many brides, I searched everywhere for a photographer that was within budget and still had a portfolio that to me really told a story. Also- it really bothered me that many photographers I reached out to did not post their prices online- when I have to take the time to write you about your packages- I'm wasting my time and theirs when they return with a number that is thousands (yes thousands) from budget.

I love Darrell McDavid's simple pricing - their package offers everything and more that I had expected. They don't price by hour, location or individual photo. You get a CD of all your photos that you can keep and print when you're ready (or just look at frequently on your computer like we do :)

I also love Darrell McDavid's approach to photographing a wedding. They met with us, at our convenience and went over details/questions to really get to know us so they could do the best job possible come the wedding day. In my experience, this is rare. They really make you feel comfortable.

For the engagement shoot, again- they went above and beyond to schedule and shoot at a place of our choice and convenience and did an amazing job.

For the wedding, you get the benefit of having Darrell and Kristen take photos, so everything was covered from the primping to the very last song (and they stayed when the wedding went over time with absolutely no complaints).

The CD and photo book came very quickly after the wedding and as expected, we were not disappointed. They captured the day beautifully! I couldnt be happier with the services they provided on our wedding day!

Also- it really bothered me that many photographers I reached out to did not post their prices online- when I have to take the time to write you about your packages- I'm wasting my time and theirs when they return with a number that is thousands (yes thousands) from budget.

I love Darrell McDavid's simple pricing - their package offers everything and more that I had expected. They don't price by hour, location or individual photo. You get a CD of all your photos that you can keep and print when you're ready (or just look at frequently on your computer like we do :)

I also love Darrell McDavid's approach to photographing a wedding. They met with us, at our convenience and went over details/questions to really get to know us so they could do the best job possible come the wedding day. In my experience, this is rare. They really make you feel comfortable.

For the engagement shoot, again- they went above and beyond to schedule and shoot at a place of our choice and convenience and did an amazing job.

For the wedding, you get the benefit of having Darrell and Kristen take photos, so everything was covered from the primping to the very last song (and they stayed when the wedding went over time with absolutely no complaints).

The CD and photo book came very quickly after the wedding and as expected, we were not disappointed. They captured the day beautifully! I couldnt be happier with the services they provided on our wedding day! Read less

Darrell and Kristin are amazing photographers to work with. From the day we met them they were always very easy to work with and gave us their complete attention. On the day of our wedding, Darrell and Kristin made sure they catered to our every need and captured all of the pictures that we said we wanted. They are very organized and care about what they do. We just received the pictures from our wedding (in a very timely manner) and we could not be happier. They captured our day perfectly and provided us with memories that will last forever. We are so happy we went with them and will definitely recommend them to our friends.

Great photographer! Darrell and Kristin are a husband/wife team who were absolutely wonderful to work with during the entire process leading up to our day- thorough, responsive, and friendly. They were so thorough and detailed throughout the entire process and made things really easy on us so we could just enjoy our wedding day without worrying about what pictures needed to be taken. We had a long list of photos we wanted captured and they made sure to get every one of them. We barely knew they were there at the wedding, but our sneak peak pictures show they caught some amazing moments. We can't wait to see our photos!! and we are excited to have such a good photographer to use for other events! Thanks Darrell and Kristin!!

Over and over and over during the wedding planning process, I heard the same comment from those who had been through it before me: "the pictures are an investment." In searching high and low for the right photographer, it seemed like I was never going to be able to find the right fit (at the right price, too). When I was just about to give up, I came across a review of Darrell McDavid. After the first phone call, I knew I found the perfect fit. From the beginning, Darrell and his wife Kristin were incredibly professional and friendly. There were so many little touches - from a tote to carry a change of clothes in, to the cute cards and magazines of ideas for photos - that really made them stand out.

My husband and I both agreed the day after our wedding that Darrell McDavid Photography was the best vendor we hired. They really made an effort to get to know us as a couple and did research on our wedding venue so that they could get the best shots. Not only did they capture our personalities, they captured the personality of our entire wedding.

We have so many great shots from the engagement session and from the wedding, that we have no idea where to start on making our album - which is just a fantastic problem to have.

Thanks, Darrell and Kristin - you guys are really top-notch.

Darrell was so flexible when it came time to do our engagement session. We met early in the morning around 7:30 am, at a location that was close to us, but a hike for him. The pictures turned out beautifully.

Our wedding photos were amazing. Darrell and his partner (wife) took so many great shots, that captured moments that we missed or would have forgotten. They were so quick in turning around the photos to us as well. We love every shot.

I almost wish I was getting married again, just so I could see more photos! :)

Where do I even begin...?

When my husband & I met Darrell in the fall of last year we immediately knew that this was the beginning of something great. He was very professional yet, personable. Our engagement shoot took place that winter & it wouldn’t have been a proper photo shoot without our dog Bently. It was very cold that day and “B” was not on his best behavior. We thought to ourselves that perhaps bringing him was a mistake. Then we started shooting and each time Darrell wanted to get B’s attention he pulled a treat from his pocket. We may not have been prepared fur-parents that day but, Darrell sure was. He was so patient and the end result was a fabulous set of snowy winter photos by the water.

The weeks leading up to our wedding Darrell & his wife Kristin did an excellent job keeping in touch and stayed very organized. Then our big day came & it went in the blink of an eye. It seemed like one big blur. We spent our honeymoon relaxing and talking about how perfect our wedding day was. Prior to the wedding, if I’d heard it once, I’d heard it a thousand times, “on your wedding day, expect one thing to go wrong” Well guess what? Not our day! It was PERFECT!!

Last week we received a package and inside was the CD of our photos with a personalized label on top. As we began to view the photos the “blurriness” began to fade and we were reliving our wedding day. Darrell & Kristin caught the magic of it all. Each moment, all of the beauty from that day was right there on our computer screen. Looking at them made us happy as we were on our wedding day.

Darrell & Kristin, you both are beyond talented and we wish you continued success! Mike & I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to working with you in the future! : )

In this short review, I can not say enough good things about Darrell McDavid Photography, but I will do my best. Darrell was our photographer for both our engagement shoot and our wedding, and I couldn’t have wished for better shots. EVERYONE who sees them says how wonderful they are and always want to know who did them. I am always very proud to share such a wonderful photographer with them. In fact, I wish I was getting married again, just so I could hire Darrell again. :) He was very professional, but at the same time very down to earth and really cared about capturing the heart in every moment. Every time I thought…hey this would make a good picture….he was already there snapping a shot. He did wonderful work editing the photos as well. His color work is just incredible. So if you want a photographer who will get all the right shots you want, and all the shots that you don’t even know you want until after you see them, Darrell McDavid Photography is who you should hire. :)

We loved working with Darrell and Kristin. They were friendly and down to earth, plus the welcoming package they sent after we signed with them absolutely blew us away. We felt comfortable with them which reflected in our photographs. Having photographers all day helped capture some pretty unique moments that i hadn't thought I'd even want. Darrell was quick to jump in when a storm blew in and we needed help closing up our tent. He even carried safety pins in his pocket which came in handy when my father's tie was broken! Amazing and thoughtful.
