I’m Darrin, and I’m your unique, fun, and creative wedding photographer. My background is different from other photographers. I was a bartender for 30 plus years before becoming a professional photographer, and one thing that sets me apart is I’ve paid attention to people from behind the bar—noticing their mannerisms, their happiness, and their high fives. Those moments helped me transition into weddings when I picked up a camera. I can handle the craziest of crazy fun weddings. I’ve learned to fly by the seat of my pants and never stress. I know by experience what fun looks like, whether it’s you and a group of your bridesmaids on the dance floor or someone swinging around on the stripper pole inside a party bus. You’ll want to remember all those candid moments with your family and friends, and I’m the photographer that can capture them.

Both me and my husband loved working with Darrin. What I love about his approach is that he can take two normal people (who rarely take pictures) and make them feel and look like models. For us capturing moments were more important than stale portraits and Darrin has a keen eye for that. His creativity and playfulness in planning shots is beyond compare. Having our engagement photos shot with him prior to the wedding was invaluable because it helped us develop our repoire. We completely trusted his direction the day of the wedding which helped get our photos done quickly and beautifully. Also we had the pleasure of working with his assistant Luchilla. She was extremely helpful and I appreciate that she went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable throughout the day. Overall we felt our money was well spent working with Darrin and I can't wait to see the final pictures!Sent on 10/15/2016

Darrin is such an amazing photographer. He not only does great work, he's so easy to work with and his demeanor is so calming. So when things get sticky, he's cool as a cucumber. I love working with Darrin. And I especially adore his photos. You can't go wrong if you choose DH.
Gosh, were do I start with Darrin.... I work with photographers every weekend as a wedding DJ and working with Darrin is awesome! He is enthusiastic, fun, and professional. In order to to really appreciate his personality, I recommend following him on Facebook! Darrin is not your typical guy and definitely not your typical photographer as he is able to get some great shots that I feel others just don't do. I often see him engaging not only with the couple, but also their family and their guests. I highly recommend couples to search out Darrin for anyone that is not looking for ordinary!
Darrin is hands down one of the best eyes in Wichita. When you want Fantastic pictures to capture all your memorable moments, be sure to call Darrin and hire the best. You will be thankful and grateful you did.
