It was wonderful having two sets of eyes and two cameras on each part of the event. I feel like we caught all the special moments on camera which is so valuable because the night was over too soon. They made sure I had every picture I wanted including sun set photos and the end of the night kiss in the elevator. They made my night so much better and having all the photos in color and black and white only made it more special.

Can not express how amazing our wedding pictures came out! Darren was a pleasure to work with (as was his wife who assists him on the day of). I do not consider myself photogenic and have never liked having my picture taken but Darren was so easy to work with, flexible to ideas and had his own great ideas in addition to ours. I prefer candid shots and he did a lot of these for us. Even the posed pictures didn't feel uncomfortable. Every one who sees my wedding pictures say they are beautiful and look straight out of a bridal magazine! We can not thank him enough! I highly recommend his services for both engagement and wedding photos.

Aaaaaaaaamazing!!!!! I feel truly blessed to have found Darren Pellegrino Photography. He was the wedding photographer for a good friend of mine last year - and after seeing all their photos - I knew I had to book him - to say Darren's photos are good would be an understatement. Darren is very creative and takes quality photos that you will want to hang on your walls for a lifetime - just look at his site! Aside from his quality of work, Darren was so great to work with and very accommodating. I ended up having to change the date of my wedding (long story) and he made this very irritating glitch in my plans a seamless transition for me. If I had an option to go back in time I would choose Darren again and again. Don't make a mistake!!! Just choose Darren!

Darren was a pleasure to work with. His wedding package is very reasonably priced, especially considering the high quality of his work. He was very professional throughout the process, and always quick to respond to any questions I had. At our engagement shoot, I was very impressed that Darren had showed up early to take a walk around the site and get ideas. It rained on our wedding day, so I was concerned about getting good photos at our outdoor reception site. Darren and his wife worked with what we had, were very mindful of keeping us dry, and the photos came out beautifully. If it weren't for a couple of cute photos with umbrellas, you wouldn't even be able to tell that it was raining. I think the thing that I'm most pleased with is that Darren really captured the best moments of the day. My husband and I are so happy with the photos. I would absolutely recommend Darren Pellegrino Photography to my friends and family.

I cannot recommend Darren Pellegrino photography highly enough. When I was looking for photographers and saw the quality of Darren's work, I was blown away that I could afford to hire him for my engagement and wedding photos. I was not disappointed.

Darren works with his wife (two photographers for one!) so most of our pictures have multiple angles that really just complete the wedding album. I am having the most difficult time not putting every single picture that was taken into an album.

Aside from the quality of photography and the price, one of the elements that drew me to Darren Pellegrino photography was that he sends all the pictures he takes to you in high-quality digital format (I have 4 CDs worth of photos). I wanted to have the rights to all my pictures--not have to go through a photographer to order prints. This was a big selling point for me. I can still look at all the photos and order prints through a website (and so can my family which makes things easy) but I don't have to. Additionally, the fact that an engagement photography session was included with the price for wedding photography was also a big hit with me! It was great getting to work with him prior to the wedding. We got to break the ice, so to speak, and were really a lot more comfortable on the wedding day because of it!

My husband and I wanted to take our wedding photos prior to the ceremony but I didn't want to lose that "first look" moment so I asked Darren if we could do something to recreate it. He came up with a whole plan. They arrived at our hotel for the "getting ready" photos. Here's where having two photographers really comes in handy! They split up and we each drove to this beautiful location on the way to the wedding. My husband and Darren got there about fifteen minutes prior and "set up" in a spot so that I could walk up to him and Darren could capture the moment! Those pictures turned out so beautiful. I have random people (who I don't know) sharing them on their own facebook pages because they like the photos so much. If that isn't a compliment to Darren's work, I'm not sure what is!

From there, we went to the wedding venue where we took the photos of the bridal party, some photos of just myself and the groom and then a few family photos. They really work to incorporate the types of photos that you want--even throughout the wedding reception, it was easy to pull them aside to get some photographs. They also captured pictures of a lot of our guests, and all of the amazing looking food and decor. I really have a complete wedding album that allows me to relive the entire day.

The ceremony photography is amazing. They captured every special moment, every laugh, a couple tears and I didn't even notice them moving around taking pictures during the ceremony! They definitely were!

I wish I could fully express how happy my husband and I were with Darren Pellegrino photography. I love my wedding photos so much and would recommend them to any bride looking for fantastic wedding photography. They are top notch!!

Darren Pellegrino photographed our wedding and also did our engagement photos... a family friend referred him to me. All my girlfriends used the same photographer for their weddings and each one of their albums resembled eachothers...the typical poses and group shots... I wanted something different, creative and new... Darren was it. His work is incredible - he has such an amazing eye. Our photos are art - I love the creative angles, contrasts in colors and playful poses he put us in. We were beyond thrilled with our engagement shots and our wedding pictures are phenomenal too.. could not have asked for more!
Darren was also so calm, friendly and up for anything we threw at him for ideas - but also very professional, always emailed me back right away and was very prompt with our meetings.
The referral to use Darren was the BEST wedding advice I received during my wedding planning process... your pictures are what make your day last forever.
