My style has often been defined as eclectic because I like to mix artistic, traditional and journalistic elements in my photography to tell a story. I believe it is vital to the creative process to adapt the many styles of photography to your individual style to create images that will be cherished for life. My goal as your photographer is to create imagery that, as the years go by, will always remind you of how you felt at that exact moment in time. Read less

We both enjoyed the time we spent with Darrin and his wife Rhonda. They were enthusiastic about photographing us and so flexible. We appreciated their willingness to drive us both to the park and to our home to take a picture with us and our dog. They went above and beyond our expectations, not only did they drive us around, Rhonda washed me feet after our trip to the park and even helped to serve dessert at our reception.

Also, we are so thankful that we have the rights to our proofs. We love being able to see all the candids, and as we have viewed our proofs we feel like we are reliving the day. It has offered us am much broader view of the day, than a traditional photo package might offer.

It was a pleasure to work with Darrin. He helped capture the events of our day forever through photographs. He was very considerate asking what we would like and then suggested additional poses and venues he thought we would like as well. The quality and speed were unbelievable! I would definately suggest him to others.
