Wedding photography requires knowledge of equipment, lighting, organization and planning, great communication with client[s], timing, processing, energy, spontaneity, and the ability to see everything creatively. To be a successful photographer, these things need to intersect with each shutter click. When I arrive to visually preserve such an important day in your life, I immerse myself into the anticipation, the emotion, the love, and the beauty that occurs when two souls are united. I look for the stillness and subtlety in the midst of all that is swirling around you.
I am honored to be the one hired to provide lasting visual memories passed down through time for years to come.
I prefer natural lighting [whenever possible] in a lifestyle - editorial style. I capture candid expressions, movement, and non-relivable moments. I believe photography should tell a story [your story] and evoke emotion.

We have hired Darcy to do our wedding photography which came with engagement photos. We completed our engagement session about a month ago and all I can say is Darcy is amazing. We had an absolute blast, laughed till we cried and our photos came out better than we ever expected. If you want a photographer that can really capture your uniqueness as a couple: pick Darcy! Can't wait for her to shoot our October wedding!Sent on 08/19/2018

I can't say enough great things about working with Darcy. I ended up needing a new photographer the night before my wedding, and I remembered speaking to Darcy months and months earlier. She responded to my semi-frantic email at 11 p.m. We spoke the next morning (day of the ceremony) and set everything up. Without the normal prep time and discussion you would normally have, Darcy was able to get the photos I wanted of the venue, family and the ceremony. The two angles she used during the ceremony worked wonderfully, and all of the pictures came out beautiful. We are using her again in a few weeks for pictures of us with our dogs!Sent on 06/03/2016
