Darrin is an amazing photographer. Put us at ease during our engagement session and made us look fabulous. We know we’re in great hands for capturing our big day. Highly highly recommend Darrin.

Both me and my husband loved working with Darrin. What I love about his approach is that he can take two normal people (who rarely take pictures) and make them feel and look like models. For us capturing moments were more important than stale portraits and Darrin has a keen eye for that. His creativity and playfulness in planning shots is beyond compare. Having our engagement photos shot with him prior to the wedding was invaluable because it helped us develop our repoire. We completely trusted his direction the day of the wedding which helped get our photos done quickly and beautifully. Also we had the pleasure of working with his assistant Luchilla. She was extremely helpful and I appreciate that she went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable throughout the day. Overall we felt our money was well spent working with Darrin and I can't wait to see the final pictures!

Darrin photographed our engagement and wedding photos and they were simply amazing! He is great to work with and made us feel relaxed and natural while taking pictures. We had no idea what we wanted and he had so many great ideas. We have so many photos that we absolutely love that it's hard to chose our favorites. Definitely recommend Darrin for your wedding!

Darrin truly exceeded my expectations. If you're looking for a wedding photographer who will go the extra mile to know you and your fiance, as well as come up with creative ways to make your photos special....then this is your guy. He is fun, dependable, and an artistic genius. I'm thrilled to have the kind of wedding photos that I'll want on our walls for years to come. I wish I could give him six stars!

Now looking back to my wedding day, I can honestly say that hiring Darrin as our wedding photographer was one of the best choices we made. He not only made our day more fun by sharing the excitement with us, but he took photos that were unbelievable. I'm so thrilled with our wedding photos, and as I look at them on our wall everyday, they make me smile because of how accurately they capture the happiness of our special day. I definitely recommend hiring Darrin!

Darrin and Sarah did a wonderful job with my daughter's wedding! They put us all at ease, and were a lot of fun. I can't wait to see all of the photos. The sneak previews that I saw were fabulous.

We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our engagement and wedding day pictures. Darrin is very professional, creative, prepared and personable.He makes everything flow so easy and fun. We had several people assume he was a family friend because of his personability. Two thumbs up!

Darren was super great to work with. He really worked to get every shot we wanted and we would highly recommend him!
Erin · Married on 06/02/2012
I knew the minute we met with Darrin that he would make this day so memorable! He has a great eye for creativity and will make your day so fun! Between our Engagement photos, and the actual wedding day, we met a few times to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted to capture on our day. We had a special guest at the wedding, Willie the Wildcat, and Darrin really had fun with him. We also had a blast with the second shooter he had with him! We are looking forward to seeing the photos in a couple of weeks!

Darrin was a blast to work with. He is very creative, and helped capture our Engagement and Wedding perfectly. He was open to new ideas, as well as helping us break out of our shells. We have told many friends, and relatives about him!

Darrin was great to work with. He had alot of fun and different ideas for our photos. He was very creative and very helpful throughout the day. Darrin did a great job at managing our time during the idea but also getting the key shots we discussed. Definitely a great experience!

Darrin Hackney was recommended to me by a friend. I visited his website and fell in love with the way he captured moments. My wedding was an all day event and he was there from when I started getting ready at 5 in the morning until we were wrapping up and 10 in the evening. He was also willing to do a last minute photo shoot the next weekend because we were not able to get all the personal pictures we wanted at the actual wedding itself. Talk about flexible! He took a lot of pictures, but not too many. He was very good at trying to capture the right moments at the right times and I really appreciated not having to sort through 1000 pictures. For an all day event, I had about 400 pictures to sort through. Trust me, I've seen some of my friends pictures and 1000-1500 pictures is A LOT to sort through. I really loved my wedding photos and they are the thing that I feel I got the most value out of from my wedding.

Darrin and Brian where amazing to work with! I couldn't have asked for better photographers for our wedding. It was so much fun and they made the day all about us! I have and will continue to recommend their company to anyone looking for photography! Great guys to work with!

I was inhibited by not having ideas on my son's senior photos. We had the outfits, but that's about it. Darrin reminded me that he does that part. And he sure did! His choice of locations, backdrops and suggestions on which outfit to wear in each was spot-on. There is such a mixture of all the above, plus expressions on my son's face that Darrin captured, that I just couldnt be happier. Darrin was very professional the entire time, he directed where and how to stand, adjusted positions for himself and my son to get the best shots. And lighting...oh my gosh, Darrin is the master on lighting. There was one shot of my son on a football field during an overcast cloudy part of the day. Darrin's version was a fantastic shot of my son under a gorgeous, defined, moody sky. I wouldnt even consider another photographer. Whether wedding, graduation, engagement, head shot, pet, Christmas cards...the man has more creativity and talent in his pinky than so many others who claim the same profession. You'll be in good hands with Darrin Hackney Photography. He's the consummate professional but makes you feel comfortable throughout the whole process.
