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.

Darren provided a sense of calm and order on an unbelievably hectic day. He and his lovely wife were highly professional and we felt they were truly invested in our day. This was not just a job to them. Darren's experience is a huge strength. He is also open to feedback and more than willing to accommodate. We have shown the pictures to almost everybody at the wedding and they were overtly happy with the finished product. His talent and eye for great scenes show through in each picture. We highly recommend Darren.

You will not be disappointed! They are so professional and flexible with their packages, I did not feel uncomfortable at all asking if I could change or add features to a package they advertise. The pictures came out amazing and I was able to see a preview gallery soon after the wedding. Can't wait to make my album!!

Absolutely the best! From start to finish Darren went out of his way to make sure we felt like more than just another customer. He got to know us, our likes and dislikes, asked us for (and valued) our input and opinions. He made the whole experience as easy and stress-free as he could. We felt comfortable the entire time.

The photos are everything we could have asked for and more. Darren's passion for his work shows through in the final product. He puts thought and imagination into every shot. For both the engagement shoot and wedding he arrived early to survey the grounds for unique photo opportunities. That in itself really impressed us. His professionalism is second to none.

We have nothing but positive things to say about Darren. We've recommended him to everyone we know who is getting married. We're really glad we chose him to capture our special day.

After researching the different wedding photography options out there and the packages available, I was very happy to come upon Darren Pellegrino Photography. The artistic interpretation of his work caught my eye immediately and I reached out for more information. Darren responded within hours with a phone call and email. We discussed what I was looking for and his wedding packages. I hung up feeling good, but being as cost conscientious as I am with our wedding budget, I interviewed a few other photographers, but didn't come away as good as I felt with Darren. When my (now) husband and I met with Darren, he was very easy going and was not pushy at all, but all the while giving us his thoughts and ideas to consider. We agreed that our search had ended and booked him after our meeting.

As part of our package, we had an engagement shoot. Darren and his wife were pleasant and professional to work with. We had lots of fun doing this and it was great to get an idea of what it would be like on the day of the wedding. Two or three days later, we got the first of our photos back and we were more assured that we made the right choice going with Darren. We loved the engagement photos and received lots of compliments on them.

The day of the wedding came and Darren and his wife showed up on time and started shooting away. They were very unobtrusive and I didn't even notice as they mingled in and took photos. They were very accommodating with everyone and very kind. As a bride, I was very happy to not worry about if my photographer was doing his job and taking pictures. They took all the usual shots of the dresses, flowers, ring, etc. I also liked that each bridesmaid got her own close up shot. Darren definitely has an eye for backgrounds and shots that I though was questionable came out beautiful and very artsy. I had over 2000 photos! It was wonderful to go through them and see what was going on around us when we weren't able to be everywhere at once. Darren and his wife did a fabulous job capturing the day and we love our pictures. The tough thing to do now is pick out one picture to use for our thank you card!

Darren is a really great photographer! looking at the photos it felt like we were living the whole day all over again, every moment was captured. He and his wife worked really well together, we didn't have a lot of time to take pictures because of the time schedule at the venue but he did great with the amount of time we had. The photos were beautiful. He sent them all in color and black and white, and set up a website we could share with family and friends, makes it so easy. :)

I recommend them - they were so much fun to work and always responsive to all our questions and concerns.

(And there were a lot!) On the wedding day he really helped to keep everything organized and relaxed. Also his quality of work is exceptional. He doesn’t just take posed pictures of everyone but really captures the live event. I loved him and would absolutely recommend him to anyone!!!!!

Darren and Beth were such a pleasure to work with. They are such a relaxed fun couple we knew they would be perfect to shoot our big day. They are so creative and are always looking for that "special" shot. They made sure to take every important picture that we wanted at the wedding and our formals came out AMAZING! We met with 4 different photographers and knew immediately that Darren and Beth were "it!". We can't wait to see our album filled with all of the amazing shots that they took during the day. They were all over the ballroom all night taking hundreds and hundreds of shots all night long. Darren even stopped traffic in the middle of Boston so we could get a shot of the whole wedding party in the middle of the street with all of the skyscrapers in the background... I thought he was crazy but it was totally worth it as the picture came out AMAZING! Thank you both so much...we could not be happier!

I would not hesitate to recomend Darren and Beth for any photography needs. Not only are they super cool people to work and interact with, they were exactly what we were looking for, a part of the party.

From the first time we met Darren and Beth as we began our photographer search we felt they were just the kind of people we would want. When you take a look at the photographs on their website and you see the professionalism there, how could you want more?

Many would think that a photographer would be "On the outside looking in" Darren and Beth had a way of understanding what was important to us, and then finding it with their photographs. Not only were they a part of our celebration, they are the memory of our celebration.

We had a wonderful experience working with Darren. When we first began our search for a wedding photographer, there was a lot to consider. For us, it came down to professionalism and cost. With Darren we were happily surprised on both fronts. He and his wife did an engagement shoot which helped us solidify in our minds that he was the right photographer for the big night. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable, which helped us to be truly candid during the shoot. We were given rights and free access to all of the photographs taken and we could share the photos with friends via a simple web link. We plan to recommend Darren to our friends and family over the coming years, so if you're still searching for the right photographer, give him a look.

I very much enjoyed working with Darren and his team. They were kind, thoughtful and prepared, before and after the event. The photographs were amazing; they captured lots of important moments. I love the documentary style approach, however looking back, I really wish we had had more direction and instruction; smile, turn this way, hand here. One of the great things about Darren is his gentle, unobtrusive approach to photography. However, for me, as a bride I could not even think straight, I needed a bit more in terms of creative directions and ideas.

Despite not having a lot of time, Darren was very good about covering a wide range. I do wish we had had more opportunity for a variety of different kinds of couple poses. I should have had the forethought to provide a list of what I wanted and confirmed that the standard shots - centerpieces, flowers, decorations, venue elements, train, were going to be taken. They took so many pictures, which is really nice for revisiting the entire day. However I feel like there are gaps in the story, which may be a result of not enough time or communication from me.
We are very happy we chose Darren for our photographer. He has a keen eye for great moments, and an even better eye for those sweet small ones that people often miss. His team does a good job with the details but since they are both shooting, it may be a good idea to nominate a bridesmaid or mom.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use Darren again. In fact my maid of honor was recently engaged and liked Darren so much from my wedding is considering him for hers. Now there is a product endorsement!

We were so happy that we worked with Darren Pellegrino Photography for our wedding in December 2009. We just saw the pictures and they are FANTASTIC!! There are so many amazing shots, I don't know how we'll pick favorites. As the bride I did not want any stress or pressure around me and Darren and Beth fit perfectly into my personality. Everything was low key and stress free. Darren worked with us to get all the pictures we wanted as well as suggesting other great shots for us to take. Our priest and our wedding coordinator were also very impressed with their professionalism. Many times photographers get in the way, we were lucky to get so many great shots without the photographer running the weddding. Darren Pellegrino Photography has top rate service, superior work product and they are a great value. I would certainly recommend their services without hestitation to anyone in the market.

We have so many excellent shots that reflect the beauty of the location, the fun of the party and our personalities. We love that they delivered the digital files with no album strings attached.

Perhaps the best part of working with them was that they helped us create one of our favorite wedding memories by suggesting how we meet before the photo session (before the wedding.) We'll always be grateful - and we can't recommend them more thoroughly!

Here's my attempt at a concise review.

Darren's sample work spoke to us. The engagement picture session amped up our excitement. Then the main event came, our big day, and we were blown away.

Style is subjective, but no one can argue with excellent service. Darren put our minds at ease and was thorough, through and through. In the end, you even get full-res digital negatives to print and enjoy any way you like.

Darren Pellegrino Photography chronicles the event in the best way possible - capturing mood and emotion. It's just real. We couldn't be happier. Don't take my word for it - try an engagement set!

Our pictures showcase everything we wanted in just the way the we had hoped. The moments captured on our special day will be able to be enjoyed forever thanks their professionalism and expertise. We were able to view our Top 50 Gallery less than 2 days after the wedding. A few short days later, we were able to browse through every photograph online. It was so nice to be able to see our pictures so quickly and send the link off to family and friends. We have received countless comments about how beautiful all of the photographs are. I would highly recommend Shuttervision Photography to anyone.
