    Darby is the Absolute Best!

    We cannot say enough amazing things about our time working with Darby! She shot both our engagement photos and our wedding day. She has a calm and friendly demeanour and this put us and our entire wedding party at ease having our photos taken. Darby is so incredibly talented- she captured all the important moments and more, both candid and posed. Her work is absolutely beautiful and we couldn't ask for better photos. Darby created lasting memories for us and we will appreciate that forever. Cannot recommend her enough!! THANK YOU DARBY!!!

    Fantastic photographer with a heart of gold!

    Darby has been phenomenal to work with. Last summer she shot our engagement photos, which turned out far better than we could have hoped for. We absolutely love them and have had such a hard time trying to narrow down which ones to use because she was able to capture so many amazing moments.

    This weekend we were suppose to get married but unfortunately had to postpone due to COVID-19. Darby has been extremely flexible as we try and figure out what our wedding would look like and when it would be. However, we do know that no matter when/what we do, we want Darby to be part of our big day. She is the only vendor we will be planning our date around to make sure she is available!

    We highly recommend Darby, you will not be dissapointed!

    Loved working with Darby!

    We can't say enough good things about our experience working with Darby! She shot our engagement photos as well as two separate wedding events for us. To start, she is a total professional and promptly answers emails/texts with patience and suggestions - she's not one of these vendors you'll have to chase! She is super easy-going and calm - great energy to have if you're a stressed out bride like me! She is proactive and resourceful, scoping out the venues for the best backdrops and lighting yet was also open to any suggestions that we had. She is detail oriented (she'll notice if you have a stray hair or hair elastic on your wrist!) and will give suggestions for posing, which we really needed (lol). 

    But of course, she is so talented!  For example, my husband and I are very awkward when it comes to photos and gave Darby the added challenged of taking our engagement photos at our old (very ugly) high school. We were blown away with how the photos turned out - not only did we look natural and happy, but our surroundings looked beautiful too! She can literally turn a parking lot and chain linked fence into art. 

    We are SO happy with our wedding photos ! Thanks to Darby's creativity, we have so many favourites that we are excited to print and display. But also - looking through all of the photos, altogether, she truly captured the day, and for us it feels like a trip back in time. Thank you Darby for everything :)

    Best Photographer!

    Recommend 100%!!
    We are so happy we chose Darby to capture the most important moments in our life so far. I came across her page online and thought the photos were beautiful, elegant and timeless. Once speaking with her, it was like talking with a friend. It was a very easy, comfortable and professional process! She is super talented and we couldn’t wait to work with her!

    For both the engagement shoot and at the wedding she was nothing short of exceptional. She is creative, professional, kind, funny, and comfortable to be around. Not everyone feels totally content in front of the camera but Darby makes you feel like a natural! She truly captures the candid and intimate moments of such a big day in someone’s life, and portrays them so beautifully!
    She went above her requirements at our wedding and helped wherever she could, - adjusting the boutonnieres on the groomsmen, even helping the ladies to bustle my dress.

    We couldn’t be more pleased having chosen Darby to capture the biggest day in our life!!!

    Thank you soooo much Darby, the photos are so beautiful!!! We absolutely love them and cannot wait for our wedding album!

    Darby Mitchell Photography's reply:

    Adrienne! I'm so happy you felt so comfortable with me. Your wedding was so sweet. I think we had 4 ladies trying to bustle your dress at one point haha! It is no easy task. Thank you for choosing me!!

    Everything we could have dreamed of and more!

    Darby is truly amazing! She captured all the magic of our special day, key moments we wanted and other ones we didn't even know were had! She was reliable, friendly, professional and SUPER talented! She really captured the vibe we were going for and the lighting and angles in all the shots is very flattering. Thank you so much Darby we will cherish these photos forever!

    Darby Mitchell Photography's reply:

    You're sooo sweet Nicole. I loved that message from you when you said it was so comfortable seeing me at the end of the aisle knowing I was capturing your day. You love with all you are and that's amazing. I wish you both all the best and years upon years of happiness.

    5 Stars Isn’t Enough!

    Where do I even begin...
    When it came to picking a photographer, I was exceptionally picky. As someone who loves the art of photography, I had a specific vision for my own wedding photos. I spent hours upon hours looking up photographers, but when I came across Darby, I knew instantly. Not only is her work absolutely beautiful, her ability to capture the memories so candidly and not simply “take pictures”, blew me away. She captured the raw emotion, the connections, the love - and suddenly, I could picture my day as a whole. Once I reached out to her and we e-mailed back and forth, it was a simple decision and we decided to move forward (the BEST decision I made). She is exceptionally kind hearted, extremely professional and just a genuine personality!

    When my husband and I were left needing to reschedule our engagement shoot after a medical emergency, I felt awful asking to reschedule so last minute. Darby was SO incredibly kind about the situation and really set herself apart from the rest. She showed a genuine interest in my husbands well-being and put her “photographer hat” to the side. It was another example that solidified our choice in hiring her. On our big day, she went above and beyond. It was such a busy, crazy day that I felt like I couldn’t even remember certain parts - enter Darby. When I looked through my wedding photos, it was like I was able to relive our day all over again. We were able to see the reactions and emotions of our guests that we didn’t see the day of, we were able to relive those small but super valuable moments that go by so quick and we were able to reminisce all over again. Grateful doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    It is so important to feel connected and comfortable with the person who will capture your big day- and man, she did not disappoint. I have huge love for her & still go over our engagement pictures and wedding pictures daily.

    The girl is a natural.

    Darby Mitchell Photography's reply:

    First off, you have such a way with words Randi. I need you to start writing my blog posts for me! haha. I'm so happy I got to know you two and capture your free-spirited + trial enduring love. You both deserve all the best. Thank you for trusting me with all my visions - those boat photos still have my heart. Your wedding day was an absolute dream!!

    The best photographer we could ask for!

    Okay, first off, Darby is incredible and her photography is beautiful, modern, tasteful and creative. I was blown away by her portfolio and the quality of her work! There are a lot of photographers out there who are overhyped or have a strong social media presence and their work comes nowhere near Darby's! So we felt very lucky to have found her and have her capture our special day.

    We had a bad experience with a previous photographer who we ended up not using and Darby was totally understanding and very professional throughout the process and reassured us that everything would run very smoothly.

    She also cares about her couples and uses tools leading up to the wedding day to really understand you as a couple and make sure that she is aware of all the things that are important to you.

    Finally, the sneak peek photos we received a few days after the wedding were incredible! It really lets you relive your wedding day before you get the full album.

    We couldn't be happier with the way our photos turned out! Darby made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and helped with the photo composition when we needed some guidance. Throughout the day, she captured beautiful candids of us and our families/friends that we'll treasure for the rest of our lives!

    Thank you for capturing our special day as beautifully as you did, Darby!

    Darling Darby does it best

    We can’t put into words how happy we are to have found Darby! She has now captured mine, two of my friends, and a family members engagements and weddings! I can attest that ALL of these photographs were captured so beautifully! It’s like Christmas morning when Darby reveals her magic! She’s also the sweetest girl who is able to calm your awkward photography nerves and transform you into Beyoncé. Simply put, we love her and her work! We plan to continue to use Darby for our future life milestones! Highly recommend.

    Artistic Intuition

    I looked over my wedding photos before writing this, and just as every other time, I loved them. Darby captured so many of the precious moments my husband and I shared on our most special day. It was not limited to that, wedding party, father of the bride, mother of the bride, the groom's immediate family as well as many of the guests were captured in beautiful snapshots that immortalize treasured moments. During your wedding you often are only able to focus on one or two things, but Darby photographed things we would have otherwise missed (see turning out to be my favourite photos). I consider myself a bit picky when it comes to photography, mostly because it's a side hobby that I have myself, and I was truly amazed at Darby's quality of work. Photography is an art, there are good artists and....less experienced artists in every form. Darby is talented and experienced, she is the good artist you want. She shows she has artistic intuition and really makes a big effort to get to know what YOU want and what you like, what your style and preferences are and THEN goes the extra mile. Very warm and likeable person as well, which was so helpful for me, since I am awkward by nature; especially to those I haven't known a long time, but we immediately felt welcome and like old friends. 11/10, I would and WILL use her again.
