You won’t find me shooting seniors, or babies, or stiff corporate headshots.

I am focused solely on being your wedding photographer.

The fleeting moments on your wedding day only happen once. When you hire me, you can enjoy peace of mind on your wedding day knowing that your most important memories won't be missed. Every moment will be captured with intention, passion, and authenticity. 


i'm Darien

With the lights dimmed and the candles on the cake lit, we all sang a botched yet perfect version of the happy birthday song. As we held out that last note, my grandpa jumped up - lightning fast! He pulled my grandma in for a hug and gave her a big kiss on the cheek. This was more affection than I’ve never seen him show in my entire life. Capturing the emotion and energy in this photo made me think... with my grandparents’ health and memory fading I realized the value of preserving authentic moments and making them real - in print.

Photographs have been preserving stories and memories in my family since the 1940’s. Growing up, I always loved visiting my grandparents’ house - which always had walls filled with photos! It didn’t take long for me to pick up an interest in taking pictures. 

A serendipitous experience occurs. An idea comes to you that changes your career path or, perhaps most importantly, the day that you meet your love.

I want to share with you the moment that lead to my decision that telling your story through photographs as a Dallas Wedding Photographer was what I was meant to do.

I was at my Grandma's 80th birthday party. I had just started getting the hang of operating my camera and was taking photographs during the celebration.

And sometimes, all it takes is one very special moment in life - where an event happens that shapes your entire future.

What happened next was one of those moments that has just stayed etched in my brain.

It was on that day I decided that every couple deserves to feel the way my grandparents did in that moment. 

Ten years from now, when you re-experience your special day through your wedding album, you will instantly transport back to the memories and feelings of who you love, and why you love them.

Breathtaking Moments

Striking emotion

A day in the life of darien

traveler, creator, experientialist

I enjoy quite a wide variety of experiences that life has to offer.

One of my absolute FAVORITE things to do is travel to new places. So far I've traveled between 4 different countries, and have been to 16 different states across the U.S. Experiencing different habitats, cultures, and food has always expanded my appreciation for the world we live in.

I love building and modifying cars! Right now I'm on my 8th car, a 2017 VW GTI. I don't go to many car meets or shows, but I love seeing what we can do on the track!

Bowling is something I used to be overly competitive about... but hey, I have a high score of 265 so I feel like I did something right.

Buuuut some people don't consider bowling a "real" sport... so I picked up Muay Thai. After a hard day's work in the office, you can find me sweating out the stress training at the local dojo. 

One of my more recent addictions is scuba diving! It's literally a whole new world under the sea (please don't sue me, Disney...). But for real. It's so relaxing and there's some really cool stuff to see.

From the mountains

to the beaches, we love it all.
