I cannot say enough great things about Darren and Erin! We got our engagement and wedding photos through them and they turned out better than I could have imagined. I was nervous to get a photographer that would make things awkward... but it was nothing like that. They are friendly, kind, informative, and a ton of fun (our 20 person bridal party agreed)! Above all they were the most professional people I had the pleasure of dealing with throughout the wedding process. Everything was upfront and honest, which I appreciated. We had multiple consultations in person before the big day and they even checked with me the night of the wedding before they left to make sure they got everything I wanted. Not to mention that for our Nov 30th wedding, they got us our pictures BEFORE Christmas so we could enjoy them with our family during the holidays.
They were the absolute best and I would give Rising Star Photography 500 stars if I could!Sent on 01/23/2020
Rising Star Photography's reply:Thank you for the beautiful review Mallory and Michael. I am truly humbled. We have done so much since we met in June, from fun meetings, to an incredible engagement session (featuring my favorite picture of the year), and an absolutely perfect wedding day. I have had so much fun working with you both, and can't wait to share more memories in the future, whether it is the weddings of family and friends, and/or a growing family. It's been a true pleasure my friends. We are always here for you, Darren and Erin.

One of the best planning decisions we made was Rising Star Photography!
Darren and Erin were the photographers for my wedding in February of 2020. They were with us every step of the way. We met them at a bridal show and immediately clicked! We decided soon after meeting them that they were who we wanted to capture the precious moments of our special day.Sent on 02/27/2020
Rising Star was easily one of the best decisions we made during wedding planning. Darren kept in touch through the process to make sure everything was going smoothly. He and Erin were honest with us when we asked for guidance for day of timeline planning and it helped so much. They were so real with us and we valued that immensely.
Our wedding day went by in the blink of an eye. They captured everything and even the things that we missed in the rush of the whole day. The photos they captured are beyond stunning and they’re better than I could have ever imagined. We are absolutely in love with our images and will relive the day through these photos for the rest of our lives.
We are so happy that we chose Rising Star Photography. If you want vendors who are professional, fun, animated, energetic, honest, and provide incredible results- they’re for you. They started as our vendors and they are now our friends. We will absolutely be using them for future milestones.
Thank you, Darren and Erin!

I will never forget meeting you at the bridal show, and just knowing after even a minute that we were the perfect fit. The last year working with you both has been so much fun, and your wedding day was such a blessing. Erin and I love you both, and are so grateful to have worked with such a wonderful couple, gaining two wonderful friends. We know we will see you both at future events, and I am so happy about that. Friends always, Darren and Erin.

Darren and Erin were sooooo amazing to work with! They listened to what my groom and I wanted and made it a reality! We got married in November and it was super chilly that day but they stuck it out with us in the cool weather to get the outdoor shots that we really wanted! Overall remarkable experience and remarkable people to work with!Sent on 04/02/2020
Rising Star Photography's reply:Thank you for the kind words Jennifer. You and Kevin are such a wonderful couple, and it was an honor to photograph your wedding day. It was cold, but beautiful sunshine, and the saving grace for outdoor pictures was the courtyard...where the blossoms matched perfectly with your wedding colors, and the granite wall supplying a huge relief to the cold wind. Everyone was a trooper and we had a blessed day. Please stay in touch, and we can not wait to see you both at future weddings/events. Your friends, Darren and Erin.
