Darla was spectacular! She called several times to make sure she knew what shots we wanted. She was on time and extremely professional. She was also warm and comforting. Very approachable! Her pictures are so beautiful! I would use her services again in a heartbeat!

Darla is absolutely wonderful! We were looking for a photographer for our daughter's bat mitzvah, and to our good fortune were referred to Darla by another photographer who was booked for our date. Right from the beginning, Darla was quick to communicate with any details we requested and to respond to any questions we had. When plans for the timing of our event changed mid-stream a month or so back, Darla put our minds at rest and let us know that she would make everything work. Then a couple of weeks ago, I called Darla about an idea for a project we were thinking of for the bat mitzvah that--if it was even feasible--would have to be done ahead of time. I think she was as excited about it as we were! She found time in her busy schedule for a photo shoot the following weekend and, from her years in the industry, promptly connected with artists in the area who (together with Darla) could convert our vision into a reality. Darla spent a couple of hours with us, discussing and helping us develop the idea and making-up our daughter (another of her specialties), and then took a series of photos of our daughter (and her younger sister) in different get-ups, poses and arrangements. They had so much fun together--Darla coaching our daughter to achieve the pictures we were hoping for, and then taking a bunch more just because! A quick two days later, Darla deposited the set into our Dropbox. They were stunning--beautiful, spontaneous, fun, natural. Even though the shots were taken in our home, not in a studio or outdoors, the lighting, crispness and evenness of the images somehow are outstanding. As my wife and I scanned through the collection, each image seemed to be outdone by the next. We feel very fortunate to have lucked our way into finding Darla. She is an excellent and experienced photographer (and charges reasonable rates), but more than that, she is a lovely and friendly person and a natural with adults and children alike. We highly recommend her.
Darla Photography Price Rates
It has been a pleasure to work with Darla at weddings and other celebrations throughout the years and include Darla Photography on our recommended vendors list for over a decade. As a photographer Darla has what I like to call an artistic photo journalist style. She has the unique ability of blending onto the crowd while capturing countless candid moments and does her best to not stand out too much even when posing or setting up an important picture is necessary. The first time I worked with Darla on a wedding she impressed me with a very simple gesture by setting her camera down on the ground so she could fluff the bride’s dress and straighten her train as she began to walk up the aisle before capturing an amazing photo of the bride and her father from behind with the groom looking on from the alter. Like Darla, the wedding professionals that impress me the most are the ones who will gladly take on the responsibility of being an extra wedding coordinator so to speak, even if just for a very brief moment to straighten a dress or bring drinks to the bride and groom while they are waiting to join the reception, rather than just doing their job.
Darla is such a pleasure to work with. From weddings to bar/bat mitzvahs, she does it all. Always professional and a pleasure to work with. Excellent photos!
Pictures are said to be worth a million bucks and Darla Photograpghy work is priceless! Great work! You will be pleased!
