Narisa & Karolis
We received the memory stick this past weekend and got so excited! We are probably going to say what you already know :)
Your photos are stunning and showed a great story while capturing the atmosphere and emotions exactly how we remembered them. Looking through these bring back wonderful memories. There was so much love and joy in the air plus certain moments of nervousness and countless snapshots of outright humour! I could tell form the photos when I was feeling a bit tense inside or overcome with pure happiness.
I cannot even begin to choose a favourite as there are all amazing! Apart from the couple and ceremony photos, one that struck me was when I saw Syne (one of the bridesmaids) for the first time on the day and she gave me a hug and it exudes how happy she was for me as she was the one who introduced me and Karolis.
You also captured a lot of guests’ personalities as well which was intriguing as we didn’t witness a lot of what the guests were up to on the day, so it was great to see what was going on when we weren’t around.

Narisa & Karolis
I had no idea what was going on with the groom + groomsmen photoshoot or whose idea (yours or your team’s?) it was to photograph the men in their underwear. It made me laugh out loud so much and somehow really suited Karolis and his entourage!
We are incredibly happy we chose you to be a part of our wedding day. Spending time with you the day before was the most relaxing part of the day, surrounded by the chaos of setting up the venue, going through the schedule and arranging transport for guests.
Your professionalism, talent, energy and all the prep work we did together gave us so much confidence. Everything from arranging to meet beforehand up until making sure we had a good pose after the flower petal throw really paid off. There were great shots of guests being wowed by the spin. We cannot wait to share these beautiful photos with our friends and family who were also impressed with the way you work esp. Julie.
Please let us know when you’re in London again ka, let’s meet for coffee/dinner.
Lots of love.
Jeeb & Karolis,

Thank you so much for your lovely message. We miss the wonderful time we had with you during the past weekend already!!
Having our pre-wedding session with you is one of the best things in our wedding.
We fell in love with your work since the first time we browsed through your page. We knew right away that it had to be you :)
You are super amazing and talented. You made us feel at ease since the first minute you walked into the hotel room. The way you worked was very professional but yet made us feel so relaxed. You quickly wiped away all our nervousness. The session we had with you was full of joy and laughter. Every single minute was so memorable.

Gib & A
Thank you for always giving us advice along the way of the preparation. Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to make decision about accommodation, clothes, props, and everything else.
Thank you for making our pre-wedding shoot so much fun. We felt so much love, warmth and happiness. We will always keep this once in a lifetime experience in our hearts.
Last but not least, thank you so much for capturing the essence of us as a couple into our pre-wedding pictures. You make our memories last forever…
We feel so grateful to have known you…not only as our pre-wedding photographer, but also as our friend and sister.
We will definitely keep in touch. Very much hope to see you again soon :))
Gib & A,
Jonathan & Fiona
Although we have now returned back to reality, we still think about our wedding, you and your team so very often.
We both fell so instantly fond of you, that you felt much more like one of the guests.
We hope that you, Pete and all of your team are doing well. Do let us know if you visit Hong Kong, or if you are back in London.
All the very best wishes,
Fiona & Jon,
Bibi & Jeremy
We have settled into the swing of things in NYC and wanted to say thank you for capturing our special day.
The moment we saw your work we knew we wanted you to be our wedding photographer and we feel so lucky that you were! Not only are you mega talented, your energy and enthusiasm is infectious and resonates in everything that you do.
From the moment we met you, you instantly put us at ease and we love how detail oriented and organised you are. You were so much fun to be around and having you alongside our family and friends on our wedding day was a blast. We’re super excited to see the magic you’ve captured!
A big thank you also to your assistants – you and your team are simply amazing! smile emoticon. Lots of love.

Needless to say, Darin takes absolutely stunning photos. My friend and wedding planner recommended us to do our engagement pre-wedding photos with Darin. We could feel her positive energy and enthusiasm from the very first time that we met, and we got very excited. During our engagement session, she was able to make us act ourselves while bringing the emotions and beauty out naturally. This really cannot have been done without Darin being there to guide us. She captured the best moments with laughter and romance. The results were UNREAL, and everyone LOVED the photos. I would not have our pre wedding shoot done any other way. The whole session was truly a memorable lifetime experience for us. At the end of the last day of our 2-day session, it started raining. We waited and waited, but the rain didn’t stop. Darin was so determined to get us this last scene shot that she offered to stay another day on the island for us. That is just not something any photographer would do, and it shows how professional and dedicated she is as a photographer. Moreover, Darin is a very lovely girl, fun to be with, and with a great heart. This had made all the difference and made the whole experience so special. We already have our pre wedding photos framed in our home, and they will be treasured there forever.
Thank you so much Darin. We love you and your work.

Looking back at our wedding and the whole process, our engagement session with Darin is one of the best experiences and one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. Since the preparation session, Darin took the time and interest to get to know us as a couple and our unique story which translated into wonderful pictures that are filled with emotions and truly reflect who we are. The pictures are not only absolutely gorgeous – something that we would cherish until we grow old – but when looking at them, they also remind us of the wonderful time we had under the Phuket sun and of the love we have for each other.

Darin’s work speaks for itself. One look and you will want to work with her for sure. Guaranteed. You won’t even need to read the rest of this review or other testimonials. Get in touch with her and book her immediately to secure your date! I’d like to share my experience as an expression of gratitude for Darin and her team. WOWZERS. Darin is AHHHHHMAZING! She’s highly professional, skilled, experienced, organised, beyond talented, extremely creative and just a sweet awesome ball of fun, energy and hard work. You WON’T be disappointed working with her OR with her work. Initially I (the bride!) wanted to fly in a professional photographer from overseas as I found it hard to find a photographer whose work I liked in terms of creativity, lighting, naturalness and not so posey or tacky. By chance after lots of researching on the internet I found Darin and felt more comfortable about working with someone there (in Phuket) without having to fly someone in. I understood her style and it matched everything I wanted. Darin is friendly and has great communication skills. She emailed promptly and answered all questions and concerns about our wedding, even when it was beyond photography. She was organised and told us what she wanted so she could prepare and get things done. Time really flies so you need to be on the ball with things, multitasking, knowing what to shoot, etc. She is ON IT (and at razor light speed)!!!

Ann & Brett
From our chats she knew we would need an additional photographer to cover everything we wanted and put a team together. I couldn’t be more happier. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! There were so many INCREDIBLE shots. STUNNING shots. And DETAILS!!! She able to capture all of these. Even if she missed out on some she wanted to try her best to capture them post wedding. People were so impressed with her. She really knows how to capture the essence of a person. So many people have said “This is so you” in a picture (about us and our guests). I think that is what everyone should want from their wedding photos! She knew what she wanted, what poses she wanted us to do and how to direct us unprofessional models. I don’t know where all this energy comes from, she’s so tiny! Darin does all the work herself. LOVE LOVE LOVE !!! She runs a small and successful boutique company that takes care of her clients and prides herself in everything she does. She really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, you’ll have a lot of fun and wish she could keep shooting you all day! She pre plans each shoot and gets right to it. She’s meticulous. Love it! She remains focused even if there are a million chaotic things going on. She is a determined lady! Thank you soooooo much Darin. It was an absolute pleasure and ball to work with you. We can’t wait to work with you again. We will cherish these pictures forever and continue to admire your work! We love you!
Ann & Brett,
The photos really are lovely, nice, beautiful, elegant, incredible,… These words are just not enough to describe how the photos are, or if the score out of 10 it is definitely more than 10. It is not just the photos that make this session best, it is your unique personality that make us more than a customer but more like a family.
Thank you so much for the greatest photos that we have from pre wedding sessions. Your photos make us fall in love every time we look at them and every time we look at them, they make us miss you so so…. much. Can’t wait to go back and have another post-wedding session. Love you sister.

We just got all the pictures from Darin and they are all incredibly beautiful. My fiancé and I were so happy to have Darin as our photographer for our engagement photoshoot. Darin was easy and fun to work with. We were so impressed with her professionalism and dedication. Thank you again for this wonderful experience. We are looking forward to using her service again for other occasions.
Pong & Meen,
Christy & Ivan
We have received the photos and we just love each and every single one of them. We do not think one needs to describe how stunningly good Darin’s photos are, they really speak for themselves.
Darin is a very creative and artistic photographer. Ivan, who is himself a photographer and who also shoots wedding photos, said “with Darin as our photographer, we can be rest assured of the best wedding photos”. Ivan is right!
Darin our dear friend, thank you SO MUCH!
Christy & Ivan,
Amy & David
Darin, thank you so much for the beautiful photos. You are truly talented in what you do, we are so grateful that we get to have you to shoot our honeymoon!
You were also very helpful in picking one of the locations and met with us a day before to pick the right outfits for us – we also love the way you shoot, how you captured the best angle and most importantly is how serious you take this in making sure you capture the best moment of us – our photos contain happiness, extremely romantic, fun, and lots of love; all taken in a very natural way with such beautiful lighting and took us to breathtaking locations…Darin, thank you! We LOVE our photos!!
Amy & David,
Mai & Casey
Organising a destination wedding was stressful and chaotic for us both. Thankfully Darin and her team stood out as some of the most professional and organised people we worked with during the whole event from planning, pre-wedding photos to the event itself. The energy and enthusiasm with which she organised the photos on the day really added to the atmosphere and many of our guests commented how much fun they had being in the photos on our wedding day.
Would highly recommend her and her team to anyone. Truly fantastic experience working with her and so glad she photographed our wedding. The photos have turned out amazing – better than we could have hoped.
Mai & Casey,

Angela & Chris
I received the parcel yesterday !!! I don’t expect it can reach my office sooooooooooo fast and I end up haven’t worked whole day in office and looking at the photos!!!!
We love the photos so much and you really did an amazing job!!! They are exactly what we want for both our wedding and the post wedding shooting…..We all have a good laugh too when we look at the photo and remember what happened during the photo shooting (esp those on the beach!!! really crazy!!!)
We are so glad that we found you to be our photographer and maybe next time, we will ask you to take photo for us again for our anniversary!! ^^
Thanks again Darin!! We love you!!!

WOW! Thanks so much for the pictures! They are super sweet and lovely. I think they capture the essence of us as a couple! I can never thank you enough for the beautiful photos and the wonderful whole day experience.
I cannot wait to show these to my family and friends on my wedding day!
Thank you so much Darin! I hope one day to go back to Phuket and have a family photoshoot with my family and maybe with future babies with you. haha! THANK YOU.

Hi Darin, We recently received our DVD of photos from our Prewedding and Wedding shoot in Kata. AMAZING!!! We can’t thank you enough for the beautiful shots you have blessed us with, we will cherish them forever. We had great feedback from our friends and family at the wedding also and they thought your shots were great. We’ll always remember those couple of days we spent with you and your photos will grace our walls forever. Anyone needing a professional wedding photographer in Phuket, Darin at Darinimages is a great choice!!

Alisa & Alex
A friend recommended Darin as the best photographer for our pre-wedding shoot. We already knew that Phuket offered reliable weather and a variety of great locations including beautiful beaches. Although we had never been involved in a photo shoot before, Darin made the whole experince fun and relaxing. She listened carefully to our requests and interpreted our ideas in ways we never imagined. She was diligent and professional throughout a long day, helping us to look relaxed and natural. The photographs Darin created that day exceeded our expectations in every way.
We highly recommend her as a superb photographer to work with . If you want to make sure every moment is captured in a truly beautiful and timeless shot, Darin will just do that! Thank you, Darin! you made our trip so memorable.
Alisa & Alex,
Thank you very much, Darin. When I see the photos I am really happy to choose you as our photographer because you are really great and I will recommend you further, for sure!

Sophya & Alex
Darin, you are an artist without equal, a visionary without limits, a lady of merit.
I had a glimpse of the pictures this morning, and I was truly blown away!
You managed to recover elements of the day and brought out our inner selves and emotions beautifully! You even managed to get a genuine smile out of Alex! Each of your pictures tell a story. You are a master story teller.
We are so honored to be touched by your beauty.
Sophya & Alex,
Anne & Michael
We hired Darin to do our pre-wedding shoot in late 2009 through a recommendation of our friend who had her wedding photos done by Darin, and it was the best decision we made for the entire wedding, besides the marriage itself!
Once Darin was here, we were out shooting day and night around various locations. Darin provides the complete package, from makeup to recommending outfits, as well as thorough research of shooting locations and pre-planning so we were able to get all the best shots in the least amount of time. Darin is very open, honest and friendly to work with, she has the ability to make you relax and open up which always results in the most natural looking photos. She makes suggestions instead of giving orders and it makes the all the difference as if she wasn’t there at all.
It was a wonderful experience, and the end product speaks for itself. For everyone who has seen our pre-wedding photos all complimented on how good and natural the photos were, while looking professional. We were not able to book her for our actual wedding shoot as she was already engaged to another project, however she has already promised to do a photoshoot for our daughter’s first birthday party!
Anne & Michael,
Carrie & Herbert
To the tiniest photographer on earth,
your photos are definitely powerful and strong. Amazingly beautiful.
You are a really good photographer.
Thanks for doing such a great job and capturing our photos with heart!!
We really love the photos.
Carrie & Herbert,
Misato & Tom
I’m not sure if I expressed my many thanks for your hard work, enthusiasm and amazing energy!
Everyone in Misato’s and my family were very impressed by you, and you helped to make our wedding much, much more special, memorable and fun with your bossy army general attitude. Just joking, you are very sweet and tender… 555!
You have a wonderful eye and talent for photography, and we are very grateful to have had you photograph our wedding.
We will never forget our day there, for the most part: thanks to you.
Misato & Tom,
Jayne & Ham
Planning a wedding is exhausting and stressful as everyone says, but Darin has proven that taking your wedding photographs can be a fun and stress free break! What you get from Darin’s photographs reflects everything that she brings to the photo shoot: positive energy, joy, spontaneity, originality and above all beautiful artistic images. She really knows how to captured our personalities in the photographs.
We have our wedding photographs all over our home, and our guests always compliment us on Darin’s photos saying they are the most artistic, romantic, and original they’ve ever seen.
Thank you for giving us such priceless memories!
Jayne & Ham,
Therese & Fedrik

Solvi & Reidar
Darin is a fabulous photographer, that captured our wedding day beautifully. She is lovely, professional and down right fun. Our guest loved her as well.
She really makes you comfortable in front of the camera even during the formal shots, which can sometimes feel awkward.
Her photos came out gorgeous and we cannot thank her enough.
We can HIGHLY recommend her.
Solvi & Reidar,
“Words can’t express how I feel, but pictures can”
Thanks to Darin, I can relive the memorable moments every time I look at the pictures.
A true professional and patient yet creative in her view through the lens, Darin was able to capture the emotions along with the motions. We are more than happy to recommend her to anyone as you can see, we like her work so much that now as a family, we have asked her to capture our happy times again and again.
Thank you so much Darin and all the best to you.
I’ve just seen the latest photos of Patrick in the water fountains and it prompted me to write to you and thank you for the lovely photos you took of us in Phuket.
You’ve done a fantastic job and really are an amazing photographer. The whole family just loves the photos you took of Felix and Riley. Well done you!
Darin has a unique style and a rare ability to capture the best moments of whatever she shoots – she’s a true professional.
