Jeff was absolutely fantastic to work with for my wedding. He was easy to get a hold of and super responsive via email. We spent some time talking through on the phone what kinds of pictures I absolutely wanted and we worked out a timeline of the day so things would go smoothly.
Jeff showed up a little early the day off so check out the venue and make sure our game plan would still work. We were getting married on a farm and it was looking like rain so we improvised a little on our original plan and he assured me that we would still be able to get lots of amazing pictures. He was super friendly and seamlessly blended into the background. He captured all the special moments getting ready and worked tirelessly to get extra shots.
My guests were so impressed by how hard he was working that many actually mentioned it to me at the reception. He was always in a good mood and stayed until the very end of the night. I can’t recommend him enough.
He was able to get our pictures back to us very quickly and we were so happy with how they turned out. It is truly priceless to have that most amazing day captured in photos that we can look at for years to come. Thank you Jeff!

My fiancé and I were looking for an engagement photographer in the area, and we requested quotes from quite a few photographers. Jeff’s portfolio quality and reasonable price won us over. He was the quickest to respond, and offered great suggestions for location. On the day of the shoot, he was very easygoing and made us feel so comfortable. I was worried that we would look awkward in our photos, as neither of us is used to being in front of the camera. With Jeff’s direction, the shoot was fun, natural, and easy. I was thrilled when I saw our online gallery – the pictures are AMAZING. I can’t wait to use them for our save-the-dates and in our home. If you are looking for a photographer, you cannot go wrong with J. Darren Photography!! Everything about the experience exceeded my expectations.

Jeff was great. My fiance hates being in front of the camera, and Jeff made it a bit easier for him, the pictures turned out great! Highly recommend him. My fiance actually hired him for proposal pictures (shock to me lol) We used him for our engagement pictures and plan to use him for our wedding as well.

Jeff was the perfect photographer for our intimate wedding. We found him through friends who had a big wedding we attended about a year ago and fell in love with his ability to catch genuine and candid moments. We are IN LOVE with our wedding photos. Our friends and family who weren’t able to attend have all agreed he really captured mine and my husbands essence in our photos. We highly recommend for all special events! Thanks Jeff!!

Jeff Darren Photography did an outstanding job on our daughter's wedding at the Villa de l'Amour in High Point this past May! We are so thrilled with the results! Jeff was present from the beginning with the bride getting dressed, to the very end, when they left with the sparkler sendoff. Jeff's photos were creative, timely, sensitive, emotional....and just beautiful i every respect. He captured so many wonderful memories for us. The difficult part now is choosing which ones to print out, because there are so many good choices. My daughter's wedding was so beautiful and Jeff Darren made it perfect and memorable for a lifetime. THANK YOU Jeff Darren Photography K. Wilt

Jeff is an amazing photographer! He did a great job with communicating up to the event and making sure to get my must have shots! He also had lots of great ideas for other shots! He is very easy to work with and such a nice man! I couldn't be more pleased! I just got my pictures back from my wedding via his website and I am so in love with the pictures! I cannot wait for the disc to come this week! I cannot say enough about how much I love his pictures! He has a talent! He is also reasonably priced for what he offers, which is a huge plus! Thank you Jeff for helping to make my dream wedding come to life!
Jessica · Married on 04/28/2018
Highly recommend Jeff! From the start he was super nice and very quick on responses! Very easy to work with and does a great job with making sure everything is covered that you are wanting! We even got our wedding day photos quicker then expected! And they were beautiful, we are so happy with them! We can’t thank Jeff enough for all of his hard work!
Amber · Married on 04/21/2018
Jeff was amazing to work with. He works with you and makes your wedding photos look amazing. He calls you about a few weeks before the big day to go over the whole day with you in details. You can also give him photos and poses that you would like to do with your wedding party. We were very pleased with our photos and would recommend him to our future friends and family members who are getting married.

After we had to reschedule and change the location of our wedding with an eight-week notice we had to find a new photographer as well. Based on a referral from a local wedding planner we got in touch with Jeff Darren. He has been very responsive and great to work with from the beginning. He was flexible with the time we booked him for the wedding day and went over the schedule and our must-have photos with us in advance. During the day of the wedding he was awesome guiding us through the wedding party pictures. All reception pictures were beautiful and captured the vibe of the evening perfectly. He was never straight in anyone’s face, so everyone felt comfortable just being themselves. He delivered the pictures faster then expected. We couldn’t have made a better choice for our wedding photographer.
Erin · Married on 03/31/2018
Jeff is the most flexible and amazing photographer you will find. He went on numerous adventures for our wedding including taking paddle boarding, moonlight sand dune escapades and thigh high water photos. He is such a cool guy and his work is fantastic. He has a great eye for perspective photos which is a very hard thing to find. I highly reccomend him. Thank you Jeff!!! We love You!

Wonderful photographer!!! :). Very happy with our engagement photos, bridal photos, and wedding day photos!!! Great quality and price. All came out amazing! Jeff is very nice and easy to work with. Highly recommend him! :)
Caroline · Married on 09/02/2017
I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough! He was extremely responsive from the get-go and always answered any questions I had right away! He spent an hour+ on the phone with me a couple of weeks before the wedding to nail down day-of timing, to ask if I had any shot preferences, and to answer any questions or concerns I had.
The day of my wedding, he arrived a bit early to get everything scoped out and he was absolutely wonderful the entire day. One of my mom's pet peeves is when a photographer is too distracting at a wedding and she said she never even noticed him all day! His vision for each and every shot was so well thought-out and he beautifully captured every single minute of our day. Any couple would be lucky to have Jeff photograph their wedding!
Lindsay · Married on 04/22/2017
Jeff is a great photographer who knows some great places to take engagement pictures at. He is great with working with different props, poses, places, and outfit changes! We definitely recommend!
Katie · Married on 10/01/2016
Our experience with J. Darren Photography was excellent from beginning to end. Jeff was fun, laid back, professional, and communicative. I got price quotes from at least 5 other area photographers and he by far offered the best value that fit with our budget without compromising quality or coverage. The images were finished exactly when he said they would be and they are amazing! Jeff is super talented and great to work with--highly recommend!
Adriana · Married on 09/25/2016
Very reliable, professional.
Had a great time working with him.
Takes the time to capture the essence of the day.
Tiffany · Married on 09/25/2016
I have never worked with a professional photographer until my wedding and I think I literally found the best one. He is so sweet and on top of things. You never don't know what is going on, he never forgets a detail and he never ever misses a meeting. Needless to say, out of all of our vendors he is the only one we 100% trusted and 100% counted on. Definitely will use him for every event in the future. His pictures are absolutely gorgeous. He really takes the tip to get the best shots and to figure out what the couple likes.
Heather · Married on 09/10/2016
I am beyond impressed with J. Darren Photography - Jeff was awesome! He was extremely professional from start to finish, and knew exactly what to do. Even though our day was insanely hot, he still kept everyone on track and made sure we got the shots that we wanted. We just got our photos back and I love them! They captured our day perfectly. I am definitely happy!
Jenna · Married on 09/03/2016
Jeff is absolutely amazing! He was extremely flexible with our time and our schedule through the entire process from engagements, to bridals, and to the big day! The pictures came out wonderful, with extremely quick turnaround time. For two people who are not used to having their pictures taken, we felt completely comfortable.
Kristen · Married on 06/04/2016
Jeff was an amazing photographer! He was very easy to work with and his work was top notch. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderful wedding photographer! An added bonus also is his pricing! Very reasonable for such quality work!
Selena · Married on 04/30/2016
One of the few things my husband and I wanted to splurge on for our wedding was a great photographer. We were so excited when we found Jeff. He was incredibly accommodating to our needs and full filled everything we ever could have asked for. We had some friends of ours get married a little over a year ago and their photographer was horrendous. Not only was he bad, but they had to wait 6 months to get any of their photos. Because we were married at the beginning of the big wedding season, Jeff was able to get our photos to us within the week. AND THEY WERE SO VERY BEAUTIFUL. He is incredibly talented and an all around great person to work with. He made our day so much more special by making sure he took pictures of everything he possibly could. In the end I wouldn't even say we had to splurge on Jeff, between his wonderful work and such reasonable prices for what you get, I would say we really lucked out in finding him.

I cannot even begin to express what an AMAZING photographer Jeff is. He was very responsive to emails and his personality was so easygoing and sweet. We hired him for both engagement photos and our wedding. During the engagement, he made us feel so comfortable it felt as if a long time friend was photographing us instead of someone we had just met. He put no limit on the time or the number of photos he took and he has such great ideas for pictures. For our wedding, he was there ALL day and not once did we feel like he was in the way. When we received our photos back, there were so many, it took over an hour to get through them all. We cannot believe how much detail he captured and how gorgeous the quality of the pictures were. He caught so many memories that I didn't even notice were going on. It seems like he was everywhere at once. I am so grateful that we had him for our special day. He truly was all we wanted and more. and his price was too good to be true. I HIGHLY recommend him!!!!

We had a wonderful experience with J. Darren Photography. We had engagement photos done and loved them! We used them for our save the dates as well as for other photographs (and a canvas) around the venue for the wedding. We loved Jeff and thought he was a great fit for us. Jeff photographed our whole wedding day. He was there all day and got some really great shots. I'm organized and had a whole list. He brought the list and checked off each photograph as it was completed. I loved that he got my pinterest inspired shots too. I paid for an additional assistant so that we could photograph two places at once (so worth it!). I loved the assistant and was very happy with Jeff's choice on that. Thank you so much for all of the photographs! We will treasure them for years to come and are so happy you were part of our day :)
Kristy · Married on 05/16/2015
Jeff was all we could have hoped for in a wedding photographer! From day 1 he was extremely responsive to emails, which makes the whole planning process go much smoother and he was very calm and collected on the day of the wedding! He was able to get every picture I asked for along with SO many others, and they are all absolutely amazing. What was really cool was, we forgot he was even around during the reception! He was able to capture great moments without bugging us all night to pose here and there, which was amazing. The number of great photos we have from the day is incredible, we are going to have a difficult time picking favorites for our album! And, he got us our pictures back in less than 4 weeks... during peak wedding season! Unbelieveable! We couldn't have asked for more, we are so happy with the job Jeff did and now we are able to relive our special day through our photos for years to come! Thanks again Jeff!

I don't think I could possibly say enough positive things about Jeff! From the very beginning he was very professional, happy to answer any questions and always replied to my emails/calls in a very timely manner.
My story is also a little unique, and Jeff was great through it all. My dad was diagnosed with metastatic bladder cancer about a month after I got engaged. As my wedding day grew closer, my dad's condition started to deteriorate pretty rapidly. I finally talked my dad into moving the wedding ceremony up, just so he could be there to give me away. Once he agreed, my sisters and family put together a beautiful wedding in a mere 24 hours. With only a days notice, I knew it was a long shot, but I decided to ask Jeff if there was any way he could come to photograph this wedding, as I knew that these would be some of the last pictures I would have of my dad. Jeff was so wonderful and happily agreed to come. I cannot describe how truly beautiful these pictures turned out and how quickly Jeff got them back to me so I had a chance to show them to my dad. My dad passed away two weeks later, and just three weeks before my actual wedding date. For my actual wedding day, Jeff was there with his assistant to capture every moment and detail. He was very translucent and I never felt like I was being followed around by a photographer. I am excited to see these pictures, I am sure they will be just as wonderful as the ones from the first ceremony!
Overall, Jeff was a pleasure to work with. Not only does he do amazing work and take great photos, he is willing to do whatever it takes to capture the moment. I highly recommend him to anyone and I could not be more pleased with my experience!
Allyson · Married on 12/13/2014
Jeff was all around great to work with! He was very responsive and always responded back to me within minutes of me reaching out to him. We didn't have many creative ideas on pictures we wanted to we gave Jeff the flexibility to kind of do his own thing, and it was great! He captured all the beautiful moments of our day plus some! The best part was the timing. Jeff asked that we allow 6-8 weeks before we got our photos and he had them to us within 4 weeks (Christmas and New Year holiday included in those 4 weeks). I would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone!
