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!Sent on 12/06/2020

Darby was super friendly and very easy to work with. Usually when it comes to photoshoots, people get weirded out by certain poses. This was our first time and didn’t know what to expect. Darby made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout our entire engagement shoot. Highly recommend her and our photos turned out amazing - we’ve gotten so many amazing comments. Thanks so much Darby!Sent on 28/10/2019

The best of the best!
Darby has been part of our journey for awhile now - she's done three shoots for us as engaged, wedding & then married in home. I can honestly say, each time I get the photos I am swept away and usually crying tears of joy. It's safe to say I'm a tad obsessed and picky about photos and Darby exceeds all expectations. Not only that, but she is just the best photographer to be around and collaborate to make all photoshoot visions come to life. At first we were nervous/scared of being awkward, but Darby has a way of making you feel super comfortable and like you've known her forever! For your wedding day, this is exactly who you want to have beside you. The memories, moments and emotions she captures are absolutely timeless. She has a true natural talent, she is simply magic! Can't say thank you enough Darby, so lucky we found you!!Sent on 03/12/2019
Darby Mitchell Photography's reply:Jacquie! You've stolen my heart. Every session with you two keeps getting better and better. Thank you for all these kind words and building a shrine of my work. You are low key my brand ambassador lol Thank you for supporting me

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).Sent on 10/02/2020
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 :)

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!

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!Sent on 03/09/2019
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.Sent on 27/07/2019
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!Sent on 02/08/2019

Best photographer !!
As soon as we met Darby we knew we had to book her for our wedding. She is so personable and actually takes an interest in your life, you feel like friends instantly. We were really nervous about taking photos but she made it feel so natural and comfortable. She listened to every request we had and ensured we got all the photos we were looking for. Our photos turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We had such a great experience with Darby, my sister booked her for her upcoming wedding as well! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. She’s the best!!Sent on 23/08/2019

Darby is an incredibly gifted and talented photographer, and we are so happy that we chose her to capture our special day. Right from the first meeting, she had this warm and cheerful personality that we knew would be a perfect fit to work with, and we were right. From making us comfortable in front of the camera for our engagement photos to capturing quiet moments on our wedding day, we cannot tahnk you enough. We loved all the photos, but especially adore all the candid ones that you took - it really captured all the emotions of the day. We can't wait to look at the photos again and again.Sent on 01/01/2019
Darby was great to work with and accommodated our requests. Her skills are amazing and she made all the different types of lighting work. Her rates are also very reasonable for the quality that you will get.
Highly recommend Darby!
