Engagement, Bridal and Weddings
have worked with Darrel of DragonFyre Photography in a number of
weddings where he was the photographer. I am always impressed
with how professional he is while at the same time putting the couple
at ease. I have seen many other photographers who are very
professional but not very friendly or warm. Darrel often jokes
with the couple and others in attendance and makes the whole process as
relaxing as possible. He listens to what the couple wants as well
as using his own experience to get shots he knows they will like.
If you are looking for a great photographer who is friendly,
funny, and works with you rather than directing you, Darrel is your man!

had our engagement party at a local restaurant. My fiance' and I
didn't expect too much from the photos because of the poor lighting and
such. However we were pleasantly surprised at the clarity and depth of
color of the pictures. Also the timing of the photos was excellent;
Darrel really caught the emotions of the guests. The slideshows of the
photos, both the PC media file and the DVD, were an added bonus - we
loved the transitions and the background music was perfect.
seen what Darrel of DragonFyre Photography could do, we knew the
picture quality would be excellent. Therefore, we asked him to take
photos of our wedding and reception. I was pleased not only with the
quality of the pictures, but with the variety of candid shots - he
seemed to be everywhere, covering all the action! The photo gallery
was extensive, rapidly available, and secure. He was very personable
and professional, never getting flustered despite the chaos that comes
with a wedding day. We were extremely pleased with the results. I
highly recommend DragonFyre Photography.
out about Dragonfyre Photography through our Minister for our ceremony.
We were looking for quality pictures on a tight budget. We were afraid
that we would be out of luck, but after looking at Darrel‘s web page
and our initial meeting, I was very impressed with his professionalism
and the overall quality of his pictures. Darrel put us at ease and
gave us incredible pictures on our tiny budget. I highly recommend
Darrel and Dragonfyre Photography! You'll be so glad you did!
fiance and I hired Darrel to take pre-wedding photos as well as
pictures for our ceremony and reception. Darrel beautifully captured
every expression and every little moment of our day. Not only were the
pictures amazing, but he had the proofs online for us to view within a
couple of days, making it so easy to view and order pictures. Now we
can remember every detail for years to come!
From the moment we met
Darrel, we knew he would be our photographer. He was professional but laid back at the same time.
He explained everything he offered as a
photographer and as a person. When it
came down to wedding day he was there before we were, all ready to go. There was never a moment he wasn't behind his
camera getting the best shot. He concentrated on not only us but capturing our
family as well, to them he was not our photographer he was just another family
member at the wedding. When our
"time" was up, Darrel hung around with our family and friends,
snapping a few more photos of those goofier moments. Darrel captured some of the most beautiful
memorable photos we could have ever asked for. For anyone trying to find a photographer out
of the thousands out there, you can put your trust in Darrel to not only get
the job done, but to also make your wonderful day even more something to
cherish. Thank you Darrel for everything
that you did for us and our family on what started out to be a very stressful
endeavor, turned into the best wedding we could have ever imagined. You will always be in our hearts!!

a holiday party for any group of folks can become tedious with all the
many tasks. Darrel of DragonFyre Photography graciously
volunteered to take pictures for the 2007 Christmas party for the
Collin Counter Event Professionals organization, which saved me a major
headache! Not only did he take great pictures, but he was very
professional to work with and made it such a pleasure. He had our
pictures in an online gallery within a day so we could immediately see
the great work and select pictures for our newsletter and website.
Thanks so much Darrel!

I needed some casual pictures for a online project. I found Darrel of DragonFyre Photography on the web. He
knew exactlly what I needed and had done that kind of work in the past.
We discussed the project at lenghth and got together a couple days
later. An online proof gallery was available before dinner
that same day !!!. Darrel spent the extra time to bring out the warmth
of the colors despite the fact that clouds had rolled in literally
minutes before we started and the results were great!
took my daughter KateLynn with me to the Collin County Event
Professional 2007 Christmas party. Darrel of DragonFyre
Photography was taking business pictures of the event, so I was
suprised when he let me know there was a seperate gallery of pictures
of myself and my daughter. He was full of energy and helped
my daughter relax and "perform" for the camera, she even demanded a hug
from him as he was wrapping up and heading out. Thanks so much!
Mary McDonald, Custom Books By MaryMedia Services
highly recommend having DragonFyre Photography and Media Services
convert your tapes to DVD. Darrel recently converted my 19 year old
wedding tape from VHS to DVD and I am so glad I didn't wait any
longer. The tape was disintegrating, and I imagine before long it
would have been useless. Now I can stop worrying about losing the one
thing I have from that day... the disintegration process is over!
Darrel provided fast service and the quality of the DVD was excellent
considering the age and condition of the tape. Do it now!
D. Wilkison, Director Financial Aid/Veteran's Affairs, Collin County Community College
dumped a large bag of old family photos into Darrel's capable hands.
Not only did he do a great job of scanning them and saving them to CD,
he did a beautiful job of updating, fixing faded and yellow photos and
organizing them. Now my family will be able to enjoy them for years to
come, no matter where we are. We each have a copy of our family history!
Minnete Riordan, Ph.D., Publisher Scissortail Publishing
handled a media project for me, converting 200+ print photographs into
high-resolution digital format for a storybook I was producing for a
client. The quality of his work was excellent. He provided great turn
around time and gave me a reasonable price. I'll definitely be
contacting him the next time I need help with one of my projects.
