When Jackie & Ben described their love in one word, they chose "home". Fittingly, we decided to celebrate their love in the city that felt like home to them. We strolled through the cobblestone path of Elfreth's Alley, and encountered some onlookers that became first-sight fans of Jackie & Ben! To end the night, we headed to the iconic city steps of the Rodin museum. Topped with champagne & their favorite pizza from Shackamaxons, Jackie & Ben's session was one for the books.
Madeline & Brandon traveled all the way from Pittsburgh to celebrate their love at some of Philly's most iconic spots. Had the time of our lives spinning on top of city rooftops & strutting up The Rodin stairs.
Jane & Jack are high school sweethearts from South Carolina. After being together for nine years, and tackling long distance for three, Jack popped the big question and they decided to continue their love story in Philly!! Jane & Jack wanted to commemorate this time of their lives, and celebrate the first home they owned together in the City before jetting back off to Charolette, NC for their spring wedding! We did just that by hitting their favorite spots and celebrated by an iconic city-view champagne pop at the end!
We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our engagement shoot. Darby was exceptional from start to finish. To be quite honest, we think our pictures came out 10000x better than anything we'd ever seen on Pinterest... We don't think there are enough words that we could say to thank her for capturing the most magical engagement pictures. She exceeded our expectations by a landslide and we could cry every time we look through our album (no joke).
Darby fits all of these things as she was an absolute delight to work with, and we not only have amazing photographs from our wedding, but we have someone we consider a friend. She was so kind to our friends and family, and accommodated us in every way possible. It truly felt like we were apart of the best kept secret, and cannot wait to see her shoot into stardom as she is bound to do. We are beyond sure that Darby was the perfect photographer for us. My advice for those looking into working with Darby, is that if you are looking for a photographer who you want to connect with, have someone that is looking out for you and put you before anything else, she is the only option. Her talent is top tier, but for us, it was everything else she brought to us that day and throughout the entire process. We will always back Darby in whatever she does because we believe in good people, and the world will always need people like Darby.
Choosing Darby as our photographer has been the best decision we've made in all of our wedding planning! She is so talented, captured our love perfectly and her kindness and genuine love for her clients is evident in all of her work! From the very beginning Darby was extremely attentive and so excited to capture our vision. Our engagement shoot was everything we could have hoped for and more. We had a blast shooting and she went above and beyond in every way, even surprising us with bonus props and accessories pulled straight from my Pinterest board inspiration. I could not recommend Darby enough and we're counting down the days until our wedding so we can work with her again!!
"Darby was an absolute DREAM. From the first time meeting her at our engagement shoot to waving goodbye to her after our wedding day was over, Darby was kind, professional, and brought our dreams to life. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable with her bubbly and outgoing personality. Her passion for her work is evident. The photos we received back from her of our wedding day took our breath away. If you are considering booking her for your wedding JUST DO IT! She exceeded our expectations and gave us memories of our wedding that will last a lifetime."
Darby was the perfect photographer to capture our engagement. From the first time we spoke, Darby was consistently checking in and helping plan the entire day… If you need a photographer for any life event or a photoshoot, Darby is the one for you."
The environment she created from the start was so comfortable and so much fun! The pictures have turned out flawless and better than we could have ever imagined! She absolutely was the right photographer for us, and I can't wait to recommend her to all of our friends, as well as work with her on our wedding day too!"
“…Darby was patient , knew all the right angles, & was very creative with our poses and props. The photos came out great - my favorites were all the candids she got in between shoots. Darby was so sweet & even made each girl graduating a farewell basket, which included candy, CD with an awesome playlist, journal, & a hand-written note. I was in tears reading it graduation morning… I would definitely have her take my photos again and I would recommend her to anyone!”
I would let anyone know that Darby is the sweetest person ever and she is so talented when it comes to taking photos. She is just simply a phenomenal person and photographer!"
I loved our photoshoot! Darby just knew exactly what to say to get the biggest smiles out of everyone. I would tell others that Darby is not just a photographer, but THE photographer. Her poise, level of comfort with her clients, and knowledge of how to get the best shot makes her the best."
