My name is Darrick
Wilson, and I LOVE weddings! I've been photographing them for
23 years - not because I have to for the money, (I have a very
successful portrait photography business that makes me a
comfortable living) but rather because I WANT to,
because I love the emotion and romance of

photographs - and we did! We are so happy with the quality and
service that we have received\\"

Here's 7 Secrets To Having The Wedding Of Your Dreams!
SECRET #1: How To Guarantee Your Wedding Lives Up
To Your Dreams.
Believe it or not, the
photographer you select to photograph your wedding can make or
break your wedding day. Yes, I kid you not, your wedding day
- not just your photographs! Why? Because he's
THERE - with you and your family, in person - interacting
with all your family and guests - and representing you every
Now, HONESTLY, we're
not just talking about photography here - we're
talking about YOUR WEDDING - how YOU FEEL on your wedding
day, and how smoothly and romantically everything goes. You
see, your photographer determines this by the way he helps you
plan your wedding, the way he treats you and your loved ones,
and the way he conducts himself throughout the day.
Amazing Secret Revealed - What Other Wedding Photographers
Don't Want You To Know!
So here's the secret:
Meet the photographer - IN PERSON - before you hire
anyone to photograph your wedding! Most brides don't realize
that many studios hire part time photographers to photograph
their weddings for them - high school and college kids, friends,
relatives, etc. This means that you go to a studio, talk with a
salesperson, look at their samples, and make a decision -
without really knowing who will be photographing your
And if it's not just
the right person doing the photography, and interacting with all
your family and guests, everything can be ruined!
So, when you're talking with a potential studio, ask them the
1. Who did these
photographs you are showing me?
2. Who, by name, will
be photographing our wedding if we hire your studio?
3. We want to MEET this
person, BEFORE we hire your studio.
Then, when you meet this person, ask him or her the following
1. How will you dress
at my wedding?
2. Did you do ALL the
samples of wedding photography we saw in the sample books? If
not, show us YOUR work, please.
3. How long have you
been photographing weddings?
4. How long will you be
at my wedding?
5. Before you leave our
wedding, who do you check with first to see if there's anything
else we would like you to do?
6. Do you work from a
checklist of photos? (You NEVER want a photographer who needs a
checklist doing your wedding photography! He'll spend all his
time looking at the list, and miss all the wonderful, romantic
and spontaneous moments of your wedding!)
Then, decide if you
REALLY LIKE HIM, as well as his work! Because he's going to be
spending a lot of time with you and your family and friends, on
your important day.
By the way, just so you know, here's my answers to those
I'm the ONLY
photographer at my studio. I will be photographing your wedding
personally. I will dress in a nice suit (NOT A TUX, AND
NOT JUST SLACKS AND A SHIRT! I don't want to take anything away
from your groom and groomsmen and the fathers, and I also don't
want to dress casually, and not represent you professionally.)
I have been
photographing weddings, as I mentioned earlier, for _____
years. Can you fill in the blank? Just checking to see if
you're paying attention! It's 23 years!
I'll be at your wedding
until you, your husband (how exciting - your "husband!"), your
parents, and your husband's parents all say they have nothing
else for me to do. I NEVER will leave your wedding without
checking with all of the above people!
I use no checklist.
Instead, I learn the names and relationships of all the members
of your wedding party, and both families! I refer to them by
name, and I know their relationship to you, so I can be
constantly watching for those special, magical and spontaneous
moments that will be so meaningful to you to have photographs
"Everyone at our wedding kept commenting on how
friendly and professional you and Julie were. You even knew
everybody's names in the wedding party, and all my brothers and
sisters names! You both were truly amazing, and we love our

SECRET #2: Announcing The Single Most Important 'Secret' You
MUST Know About Weddings!
Here's a really big
"secret" that almost no brides think about when interviewing a
potential photographer: What's their guarantee? What happens
if you aren't happy with the photography, or the way you and
your friends were treated, or if the photographer left your
wedding before he was supposed to, etc.
This is of the utmost
importance! The guarantee (make sure it's in writing!)
tells you just how committed they are going to be in taking good
care of you, and doing a great job.
And, just so you know, here's our IRON CLAD, 100% MONEY BACK
You will be THRILLED
(not just 'satisfied') with how we represented you and your
family at your wedding, and also THRILLED with
your photographs, or we will do whatever necessary to have you
be THRILLED with them, or we will return ALL YOUR
MONEY. Period. No hard feelings either. We want you to LOVE
everything we do for you!
You see, we understand
that you can't do this over again. This is a "one-time-thing"
and everything MUST be perfect! You have our written guarantee
that we'll take really good care of you!
SECRET #3: An Important Warning: Miss This Secret, And A
Disaster Could Happen At Your Wedding!
This seems so obvious,
and yet brides miss this one all the time, and pay a BIG PRICE
for it after their wedding! Be sure the photographer has lots
of happy brides and grooms, who have written him and told him
how happy they were with both him, and his work! We're talking
TESTIMONIALS here! From real people, with their full
names, and their city and state, so you can call them if you
want to, just to "check them out" and make sure that they really
said what the photographer says they said. (That's a hard
sentence to read, but you get the point! Sorry!)
I'm sorry to be so
skeptical, but we live in a time in history when you have to be
really careful that people are telling you the truth.
You will notice that
throughout this webpage are photographs and testimonials from
some of the brides and grooms whom we have been honored to work
with on their wedding day. Also notice that their FULL names,
city and state are listed, so, if you really wanted to, you
could look them up in the phone book, and call them.
"I can't tell you how much I appreciate the
pictures and all of the hard work you did for me throughout the
wedding. I was more than happy to "brag" on you at the bridal
fair. It is so easy to when it's so true!! Thank you again for

SECRET #4: A Magic Way To Have A Great Wedding.
One of the things that
you really want to look for in your photographer, is someone who
is an EMOTIONAL STORY TELLER! An artistic
photographer whose images combine to tell the EMOTIONAL STORY
of your family, your friends, and your wedding day. This is
really important, if you are looking for photographs which will
be PRICELESS to you for years and years to come!
And here's why this is
so important! If an artist is an EMOTIONAL STORY TELLER,
there's a really good chance that he will be compassionate about
not ruining the romance, beauty and emotions of your day.
You see, only a true romantic can truly understand how important
this day is to you, and how perfectly you want it to go.
And a true romantic
will be sensitive to NOT INTERFERING WITH THE EMOTIONAL ROMANTIC
FLOW OF YOUR DAY!
I could tell you so many horror stories here. But let me just
mention one so you understand how important this is.
Not long ago, I heard
about a photographer who was hiding behind some flowers up at
the altar (something that I will NEVER do!) and he dropped a
lens on the marble floor with a huge crash, and then swore out
loud so loud that everyone heard it! (He obviously wasn't a
romantic EMOTIONAL STORY TELLER or he wouldn't have ruined the
romance and religious significance of the ceremony by hiding
behind flowers where everyone could see him come and go - and,
of course, there is NO excuse for profanity!)
So, looking for a
romantic, EMOTIONAL STORY TELLER, who will beautifully
tell the story of your love for each other, and for your family
and friends, will also result in someone who will respect you
and your wishes, and conduct himself in only the most
professional and friendly way, because he understands in the
most intimate way, the importance of the "Story of Your Wedding
And, by the way, my
brides tell me that they really love the way I emotionally tell
the story of their wedding day.
SECRET #5: The Truth About Wedding Photographers Revealed.
What They Don't Want Me To Tell You!
It is not my intention
to say anything bad about any other photographers in the area.
I know most of them personally, and count many of them as my
friends. However, it is really important that I alert you, in
this website to some of the problems that you otherwise would
never know about.
Well, here's a "biggie."
Most photographers will cram
as many weddings into a day as they humanly can. Many times,
this means they must rush from your wedding, to get to another,
and then rush from that one, to get to another.
This type of
photographer just isn't going to be able to capture the
EMOTIONS, ROMANCE, LOVE, AND RELATIONSHIPS between you
and your husband (doesn't that sound exciting?! Your "husband!")
and also between you and your family and friends. He's just
won't have the sensitivity and enthusiasm and love for what he
does to be able to capture those feelings. And he won't have
the time or energy.
You Won't Believe This, But I Assure You, It's True!
For example, I won't
mention any names here, but I once knew a photographer who
photographed so many weddings in a single day, that the only way
he could remember the names of the bride and groom at each
wedding was to write their first names on masking tape, and
stick it to the back of his camera! Not only that, but if he
had, say four weddings, he would simply stack layers of masking
tape on the back of the camera, and as he left one wedding for
the next, he would just rip off that layer, and the next couples
names were now showing! I swear to you this is true!
By the way, I ONLY photograph ONE wedding per day.
You can get me for the
ENTIRE DAY. I understand how important this day is to
you, and I am there for you!
This also means that
I'm rested and energetic. It also means I'm enthusiastic about
what I will be doing for you. As I mentioned earlier, I
photograph weddings because I LOVE them, not because I
have to do them. And since I only photograph one wedding a day,
I'm not tired or "burned out" on your important day.
SECRET #6: A Remarkable Secret To Truly Enjoying Your Wedding Day, And
Having It Filled With Wonderful, Emotional Moments!
This is so important!
Be sure the photographer you hire has a "team" approach to
taking good care of you on your day. This means that he isn't
going to be trying to work alone to photograph your important
You see, doing a really
super, romantic, EMOTIONAL STORY of your day requires a
huge amount of planning, care, and effort. More effort than
just one person can do.
Let me explain.
I will arrive at your
wedding with my Creative Director and Wedding Consultant, Julie,
who also is my wife and partner. She has a HUGE
responsibility during the day, and is the true secret to our
success in wedding photography.
She makes certain that
you look fantastic, every minute of the day! She is going to be
helping you with your dress and flowers, fixing your veil before
a photograph so it looks PERFECT, fixing your train so it is
perfect for the photographs, etc. She will also take a few
photographs throughout the day.
Plus, she brings you a
drink if you're thirsty in the receiving line. She finds your
best friend from college if you ask for her. She helps you in
any way she can to assure that you have a wonderful day, as well
as wonderful photographs. And on and on and on.
We are a TEAM.
A team that together, guarantees that you not only have a great
time on your wedding day, but also assures you of having
PERFECTLY EMOTIONAL photographs!
HUGE POINT FOR BRIDES-TO-BE::
The Magic Of "E.F.P." On Your Wedding Day!
You see, I don't really
look at it as "wedding photography," but rather as "Emotional
Family Photography created on your wedding day!" It's all
the emotions, relationships and personalities of all your
friends and relatives, captured in beautiful images for you and
your family to cherish for the rest of your lives. After all,
isn't that what you really want?
"E.F.P." is one of
the major things that separates me from all the other wedding
photographers in the area. I want to capture the love,
relationships, personalities, and emotions of all your
family and friends for you to enjoy and view with happy tears in
your eyes for years and years to come!
Aren't The People and The Emotions Of Your Life What Matter The
Most To You?
It's the PEOPLE
and the EMOTIONS of your life that are so valuable
to you. Yes, you'll also see the beautiful dresses and
flowers. Yes, you'll see the lovely ceremony, etc. But
more, much more than that, you'll feel the emotions that you
and your fiancée feel toward each other and toward your best
friends and family members on this magical day. Yes, FEEL
them each time you view your photographs. That's what I am
driven to do for you!
You see, you want
photography that "speaks" to you with love, emotion, respect,
and the glorious feelings you will be feeling on your wedding
You want your
photography to "tell the story" of your wedding day, AND
your families and friends.
Most photographers, bless their hearts, just want to "record the
event, and go home."
I want you to cry
when you see the photographs! Cry tears of happiness, because
in those photographs are all the people you and your husband
love and care about - showing their real personalities and
emotions like you never dreamed they would!
Most photographers just
want to get home before midnight, or hurry to the next wedding
they are photographing.
Don't Miss The "Emotional
Moments" Of Your Day Because Your Photographer Didn't Have The
Vision To See And Capture Them In A Sensitive, Romantic Way!
Your day will be filled
with beautiful "Emotional Moments" that you will
never experience again in your life. Those "Moments" are what I
am driven to capture for you.
Here's just three
An Amazing And Wonderfully Emotional Way To Express Your Love
For Your Dad On Your Wedding Day!
I can assure you that
one of the most emotional moments in a dad's life is when he
"gives his little girl away" at the beginning of your ceremony.
Your dad will never forget it.
But now, there's
something full of emotional magic that you can give your dad
when he gives you away! At that very powerful moment in his and
your life, you hand him a surprise "Father's Pride"
that he carries with him back to the pew, and as he reads your
personal message to him, and looks at the emotional photograph
of you in your wedding gown, he begins to cry with tears of joy
and love! I have seen it happen many times.
He will be so moved
and touched! You and he will never forget it!
Don't miss that
The Magic Moment When The Love Of Your Life First Sees You!
Or the incredible
moment when your fiancé first sees you in your wedding gown -
perfect in every way - with your lovely flowers, the beautiful
veil and headpiece - everything which you selected specifically
for him - as the tears swell up in his eyes, and he tells you
how very much he loves and adores you.
Don't miss that
A Magic Moment With Grandma
Or, if you are lucky
enough to still have a living grandmother, the lovely moment
when she reaches up and puts her arms around you, and with tears
in her eyes, tells you how beautiful you look and how much she
loves you, and how proud she is of you.
Don't miss that
I could go on and on.
Your entire day will be made up of brief, priceless moments
like these. Let's make sure first of all that your day is so
beautifully organized and planned that these moments truly can
happen, and then let's help you to be so stress free, but
excited, that you can enjoy and remember these wonderful,
magical moments for the rest of your life.
How do we do that?
I'll bet you think I'm
going to say that you do this through the photography.
Right? Wrong! The way we help these moments happen, and help
you remember them, is to help you have a wonderful, romantic
and emotional day! A day where everything goes perfectly.
As long as we do that, the rest will take care of itself!
That's what Julie and I
will do for you.
SECRET #7: How To Be Assured That You Will Be The Most
Beautiful Bride Your Friends Or Relatives Have Ever Seen!
You deserve to have a
wedding day where you are the most beautiful bride any of your
friends or relatives have ever seen. That's the dream of
every girl when she begins visualizing her wedding day. And you
deserve to have that!
Let's see to it that is
exactly what happens! How? Simple. Yes, you will select the
perfect dress, headpiece, veil, flowers, shoes, etc.
Yes, you will have your
hair and make up done. But it goes much deeper than that.
You see, beauty is also
in the way you FEEL on your wedding day. The way
your emotions show on your face, and the way you glow when you
walk down the aisle and look in the eyes of the love of your
Many of my brides will
understand this when I say it: When you hire us to photograph
your wedding, you're really paying for Julie and me to be
there. To take all the pressures and tensions out of the day
for you. You know that we are there, and that we truly care
about you, and will help you with EVERYTHING so the day goes
perfectly. That's really what our brides are paying us
for. The photographs are free. They're just an added "bonus!"
You see, if you, your
husband (there's that great word again!), and your family and
guests are all having a wonderful time, you will be more
beautiful than you have even dreamed you would be. Because
there will be no tension there. And, by the way, your
photographs will be WONDERFUL, too, because you looked so
wonderful and were having such a great time.
See how it all "fits"
together to result in a wonderful day, and wonderful
photographs? You really can't separate them!
A True Tragic Story Of A Bride And Groom, And What It Means For
Let me take a moment to
tell you a true story.
Several years ago, I
received a phone call from a woman whose wedding I had
photographed a couple of years before.
Here's what she said,
"Darrick, I just wanted to call you and tell you that our house
burned down last night."
I said, "Oh, Sharon,
I'm so sorry."
She said, "We got out
okay, and are fine. But I wanted you to know what I did. It's
the middle of the night, and the smoke detectors are going off.
We grab each other and run for the door! But I stopped and
picked up our Three Volume Set of Photography you did for us on
our wedding day! I left the beautiful candelabra that was my
grandmothers. I left the family heirloom bible that has been in
the family for 3 generations. I left EVERYTHING, except those
three volumes. Because they are so meaningful to me. Everyone
who I love and care about is in those volumes. I couldn't let
"Now, I understood that
you have the negatives, and could have made us another set of
photographs. That wasn't why I 'saved' them. I saved them
because those volumes contain all the emotions, love, romance,
and relationships that matter in our lives! I just wanted you
to know that. Thank you so much for the wonderful, emotional
photographs you created for us."
When she finished
speaking, she was crying, and so was I. She had just put into
words, what I had not been able to for my entire career.
You see how "Emotional Family Photography" can make your wedding
volumes absolutely PRICELESS?
In my humble opinion,
the tender fabric of your life is sewn together with beautiful,
emotional moments between you and your loved ones, and I want to
capture and express all those wonderful moments for you in your
wedding volumes - and accomplish this without interfering with
the emotions and romance of your wedding day.
Here's What To Do Right Now!
Here's what I strongly
recommend you do IMMEDIATELY! Pick up the phone and call
