Magical Photos and Fantastic Experience

Darnell was everywhere all at once at my wedding. He got so many moments that I, as the bride, missed and did so beautifully. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality wedding photographer who is friendly, creative, and an absolute joy to work with. 10/10 Experience.

DSQ Photography is exceptional.

Darnell took our wedding photos in April of 2023; he was simply amazing to work with. He was professional, amazing at his craft, and worked really hard to understand exactly what we wanted. Darnell captured the beauty of our wedding and gave us perfect suggestions for how to pose, and I am someone who is not great at posing.

Wedding Review

Darnell was amazing for our engagement and wedding photos. He was extremely personable, engaging and had a great way of making us feel comfortable. He was very knowledgeable about areas and venues for photos and was open to try anything creativity wise. The photos came out great and I would highly recommend and use again for any events in the future.

I love Love. I want to capture a moment and have someone who wasn't there smile and feel like they were. It's personal to me because it's personal to you. I consider myself a poet and a photographer... using multiple senses to create.

I stopped counting at 100 weddings and now each is my first, with that couple at that moment. It always keeps me refreshed. A helpless romantic with a camera and a wife. That's DSQPhotography.
