Laura and James wedding at Tickton Grange

James & Laura : We could not be happier with our entire experience with Darryl. From day one, right up to ordering our wedding album, he has been great. We had a wedding party in excess of 200, and our photos have turned out brilliant. He was able to organise the large group from photo to photo without delaying the timings of our day or making us feel rushed. Darryl was great at allowing the pair of us to feel comfortable in front of the camera for both posed and candid shots. The pre shoot was a really great opportunity to practice this, but also to bounce off ideas about particular photos you want, and Darryl had great vision for photo opportunities we hadn't even thought of. Thank you so much Darryl!

family portraits done in hull studioHad a family portrait done by Darryl, 4 adults and 5 kids. This could have been a huge challenge but Darryl was great with the kids, and made the shoot fun for them. Parents absolutely loved the photo, even brought my mum to tears. Would definitely recommend!

We chose Darryl to photograph our wedding because his pictures are so natural and the ceremony package he offers was exactly what we were looking for. Having the pre-wedding shoot is a great idea, we felt much more at ease on the big day knowing what to expect. Darryl had a great rapport with the guests, including the children and he has produced a beautiful collection of photographs for us. We are over the moon with the service we received and would definitely recommend Darryl to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Catherine & Dan

Really pleased with the shots of the children and the way you interacted with them during the session - they loved it! Would recommend you again without hesitation - Sylvia M

Julie Mike wedding at sunset Hull Marina

Darryl was recommended to us for our wedding and did not disappoint. The pre-wedding shoot ensured we felt at ease with him on the day and knew what to expect. We asked him to capture natural and relaxed photographs, which he did in his friendly manner without imposing on the guests. The finished album is wonderful, after we had great difficulty in choosing from the massive selection of fantastic photographs taken. Darryl has created us some wonderful memories of our perfect day and we would not hesitate in recommending him. Big thanks again, Mike and Julie Lee

Darryl was the photographer for our wedding and my bride and I are having a difficult time narrowing the photos down to fit into an album as every single one is fantastic. Darryl made us feel at ease with his professionalism but also with his humour too, we had a great day with him from start to finish. Ive also attended 2 other weddings where he has been the photographer and the photos on these occasions have also been amazing. We would recommend him to anyone. Sean & Becky.

boudoir photoshoot black sexy dressI had a boudoir photo shoot done as a present for my other half. The photos and calendar turned out fantastic. My other half was blown away and really loved his present. Although I was rather nervous on the day, there was no need to be, Darryl was very professional. I highly recommend anyone wanting to do this, even if it’s out of your comfort zone, to do it. You will not be disappointed and will walk away with your confidence soaring. Once again thank you so much Darryl.

Thanks again Darryl for our beautiful photographs and beautiful album. You did an amazing job, every single person at the wedding had said how easy you were to work with and how good you were!! I have recommended you to whoever asks and I look forward to a photo shoot with our new addition ! Sarah & Dave Cone

As most of these reviews seem to be about weddings, I wanted to give feedback about some pictures Darryl took of my ten month old. Like most ten month olds, my daughter can be wary of new people (especially men), so I was worried that the 45 minute photoshoot session would be spent in tears - I need not have worried. Darryl was very comfortable around my child and made her feel the same way. As a first time mother I am aware of how time consuming it can be wrangling an inquisitive child who only wants to explore - Darryl gave us both time to adjust to the surroundings of the studio and made the whole experience much less daunting than it could have been. As for the finished products, I couldn't be happier - extremely professionally finished, I can't wait to place my order and start showing off my pictures. I'll certainly be keeping Darryl in mind for any future events. Jen Birch, Oct 2015

Thank you Darryl Brooks have just spent the whole evening looking at your amazing ....stunning wedding photographs of Claire Hickey & Michael Hickey fabulous wedding day....well done you. Heather Hickey · Kinross, Australia ·

Finding a photographer for your special day is one of the most stressful things to check off your list. We found that the list of what you want from a photographer grows the more you think about it. Do you really just want someone who can come, take good shots and leave? No, you need someone who can interact with all guests; someone who can pull everyone in line, so the photos are not taking hours; someone who can capture the day and not just take the usual shots; and most importantly someone who understands YOU and YOUR needs and doesn’t charge the earth. We got all of this and more from Darryl. (read more)

Amazing photos of a wonderful Family Wedding. A film star couldn't have had a better photographer! Linda Willis (Georgina and Steve)

We are so grateful to Darryl for photographing our wedding. We choose Darryl because he his kind, good natured and friendly. He asked us what we wanted. I was always able to contact him and ask as many questions as we liked. Before the wedding we had a pre-wedding shoot which was a great idea, it helped us get used to the camera and get to know Darryl more too. This made us more relaxed for our special day. On our big day, Darryl was amazing he put everyone at ease. We wanted natural photographs with a few group ones. During our church ceremony Darryl was wonderful he snapped quietly away making sure not to impede on the importance of the ceremony. For the group shots afterwards he was relaxed and organised everyone calmly without being pushy. At the wedding breakfast and evening do Darryl was great. He had taken some lovely photographs but we hardly noticed he was there. He wasn’t ‘in your face.’ He worked really hard. Our wedding album is truly amazing. The quality of the photographs are magnificent. Everyone whom we have shown it to loves them and we do to. Lauren and Mark

Fantastic day and night - don't think anything could have been better - Tracy H

A wonderful day and such a privilege to be able to share Hannah and Scott's wedding. Photos really excellent- a day to remember! Di Leadbetter

Darryl captured the informality of our day perfectly! We asked for informal shots as much as possible and the photos completely do the day justice; they hold so many amazing memories just how we wanted. Thank you so much Hannah, Scott and Isla

The only thing you need to know about Darryl Brooks is that he is amazing! My advice to anybody reading this is to simply stop at the end of this sentence and hire him now. For those still unsure, let me explain my statement. (read more)

Thanks to Darryl Brooks for our fabulous wedding album and parents album, they are amazing :) Melanie J

Well I must say i feel alot better in my self after that photo shoot.. Had fun doing it :)) big thanks to my mum for coming with me and a very big thanks to Darryl :-) Soreena

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Darryl for a wonderful service and a wedding album we are thrilled with. Darryl listened to exactly the type of pictures we wanted and delivered exactly that and more, he was brilliant on the day, unintrusive and made everyone relaxed. Compared to the prices of other Hull wedding photographers he was very well priced and well below a lot of other quotes we had, however we felt the service and quality of the album was second to none and the pictures beautiful. We will not hesistate to recommend Darryl to anyone who needs a photographer - wedding or otherwise and anyone reading this review should go ahead and book him - you will not be disappointed! 5/5 Jenny S

Darryl....the photographs are Amazing!!! Thank you so much. Now I got to decide on which ones! Beverley C

I would recommend Darryl to any of our friends when looking for wedding photographers. Prior to our wedding we had an informal chat and discussed our ideas, which included some extra ordinary wedding backdrops, notably the local chemicals park where myself an my new wife first met. Darryl was very receptive to our suggestions and we scoped out a full plan for the day. Darryl captured a blushing bride preparing for her wedding, a nervous groom waiting at the venue, the brides entrance, our aforementioned unusual photographs, our arrival at the venue and the general feel of all the guests. He did so in a non intrusive manner while still capturing all of the key events in a truly packed day, we kept him very busy. After the event we received our photo's to a prompt time-frame which was appreciated as it enabled us to share them with the Brides parents before they left for China. Our guests gave positive reviews of the photos, they particularly liked the real life shots where people were not posing for the camera. Darryl was very good at stealth photography which really helped capture the real feel of the day, of course we did all the standard posed photographs as well. The one thing I would say is that the weather was very much on our side on the day but I am sure the photographs would have turned out nicely at any rate. 4.7/5 Adam and Shanshan M

Thank you Darryl for doing such a brilliant job on our wedding day at the Deep in September. Family and Friends think the photos are amazing.
