*above & beyond*

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!

Unforgettable and fun! PERFECT!

Unforgettable and fun! The thing we remember most about our wedding day is the time spent taking photos with Darren and Erin. They gave us the wedding day experience of a lifetime. We will truly never forget a moment of it. Make sure you set aside plenty of time for your photos. It gives you a chance to really have fun and treasure the moments of your day. We felt like Darren and Erin were friends we've known for years who were on the whole journey with us. From the time we met to the day we got our photos, they built a special relationship with us. They took time to get to know us, and kept building upon this leading up to our wedding day. For example, Darren knew I was going to climb on top of the "Cleveland" sign because that's just how I am, wedding dress or not. Darren ran right over there and helped make sure I didn't fall. Darren is honest, kind, fun and trustworthy. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful! They paid close attention to all the details like lighting, angles, and most importantly getting the BEST shots! Make Rising Star Photography a part of your day if you want the best of everything for a day you'll never forget.
