Amazing, creative & gorgeous photos

Optikool Illusions was hands down the best photography experience for me as a bride, for my groom, and our family and friends at the wedding. From our first consultation all the way through to our engagement photos and the wedding day, Darryl and his team were dedicated, creative and took amazing photos that will be timeless and memorable for us for a lifetime! Very highly recommended!

PERFECT experience!

Darryl was amazing! He was very attentive and made everyone feel comfortable throughout the day! There was not a dull moment when he was shooting everything. I can’t wait to see how great my video turns out based on the teaser trailer he’s already provided less than 24 hours later!
