About this pro

Having photographed hundreds of unique weddings across the world, I’ve mastered the careful planning and structure that are essential ingredients to a successful photographic process. While this precise preparation is key, the images that are most cherished and stand the test of time are often the more subtle, spontaneous and unexpected moments that happen between it all. Approaching the day as photojournalists, my team is always ready for the unexpected and sensitively searching for the beauty in intimate and candid moments that arise within the fluidity of the day.

As a witness to some of life’s most intimate and significant experiences, Darren sees his primary role as a story teller, an artist in search of genuine reflections of our connection to one another. In every story he documents, he seeks to capture the universal, tender truth that is found within candid moments.

His time documenting stories across the world as a photojournalist has greatly influenced how he approaches wedding photography, as have his collective interests and experiences. Away from the lens, he's a boat captain, a meditator and a student always in search of learning more. A best friend and a new dad. A believer in the power of compassion and the fundamental goodness in all beings. An avid skier and adventure seeker who enjoys getting off the beaten path and exploring as much as he enjoys the stillness of a week at home.  

Darren has documented gatherings of all kinds around the globe with some of the leading event planners and alongside a diverse and talented team who all share in a commitment to excellence and upholding their core value of treating all with dignity and kindness.
