Don't hesitate, book them! The Larken photographers were professional and great to work with. They were everywhere they needed to be to get the perfect shot, without ever being obtrusive. We never felt like we had a camera in our faces. And the photos are just beautiful--they perfectly capture the joy and action of the day in all its movement, while still looking very professional.Sent on 09/08/2016

I first met Dustin when he was the photographer for a friends wedding. I loved the way her photos turned out and she had nothing but praise singing for Dustin. So naturally Dustin was one of the names on our list. After interviewing several photographers and no luck, we had our introductory session with Dustin. His passion and love of photography was the first thing we saw when we came in with the photos on the wall and the smile on his face. He immediately made us feel like we were part of his family and got right down to business. Every question we had he had an answer for, right down to the kind of paper and company he used for printing. My fiance and I knew leaving his studio that he was the one to go with.Sent on 12/19/2014
We signed our contract and when it came time for the engagement photos, we let him pick the place. He arrived early (yay!) and with an assistant (We had had a free session with another company and it was the worst experience as she was unpaired and we were bouncing around like yo-yos with no input on the photos). The session went by quickly and was as natural as you could be getting your photo taken.
Since they do their editing in-house, we had proofs ready in a week and Dustin brought us back in to check out the finished photos! He gave us rights to all the photos and a cute gift basket with our very own Tri-Arctic jump drive. We ordered our photos and had them within 2 weeks.
Even though our wedding is not until October 2015, I can't even begin to describe how happy we are with Dustin and his crew. I know that my wedding day is going to be amazing not just because I'm marrying my best friend and soul mate, but that Dustin and his staff are going to be there to capture every moment that we will be able to look back on for years to come.

Dustin and Maren were wonderful! I loved having a husband/wife team so they could get both sides of our day as we were getting ready! Dustin shot our engagement pictures as well and they turned out amazing! They really pay attention to the little details and that makes a huge difference. We'll be getting to see our pictures from the wedding in the next week or so, but they did put up a preview of pictures on the night of our wedding! So impressed :)Sent on 06/08/2014
