     “From the day we contacted Darkershadesofbrown Photography, I was amazed at the immediacy of the responses we received and the attention that was given to our many questions. Daniel and his team understood the type of photography we wanted to capture our special day, and delivered on our vision. As someone who is very uncomfortable in front of a camera, I was surprised at the ease with which I was able to be myself during our engagement photo session. I quickly realized it was because of Daniel’s…je ne sais quoi…that something about him I can’t put my finger on. If you want traditional wedding photos, Darkershadesofbrown can certainly deliver. But it would be a shame to waste Daniel’s creative mind. Every “out-of-the-box” idea we had, Daniel built on. It’s easy to find a photographer who churns out the same cookie-cutter product, as so many wedding vendors do. But we look back at our wedding photos and actually feel the pure joy of that day, not just a posing bride and groom. It poured rain on our wedding day, and everyone tells me the photos are some of the most powerful they have ever seen. Moreover, I am writing this review on the brand new iPad loaded with our wedding photos that Darkershadesofbrown sent us in lieu of a printed album (our choice). Daniel and his team have a true passion for art, and their medium is photography. That is what sets them apart. We will certainly be using Darker Shades of Brown Photography for our next big life event.”

     “Photography by Darkershadesofbrown is art. They captured special moments in a way to make then timeless. Daniel’s images are crisp and tell a story. It’s what you want. Someone who can capture a moment that happens so quickly in a photograph that will be timeless. Anyone can take a picture but it takes talent to compose it in such a flattering way that it produces a flutter of emotion every time you see that image. Daniel did just that for our wedding and engagement photos. Daniel has a gift of not just taking pictures, but building relationships with his clients. This is key for everyone to be comfortable since the photographer is with you about 12 hrs that day. He works seamlessly around you during the event and manages to capture amazing moments. Photography was of the three things that had to be perfect for our wedding. No compromise. I looked at about 100 websites/vendors and interviewed 10 photographers. And when I thought I had the one, I met Daniel. Central park flowers (Olyphant, PA) recommended I take a look. At this point, I had seen thousands of photos and knew what style I was going for. Daniel was perfect. The art that Darkershadesofbrown is worth the price which is competitive to other photography companies. I actually had them travel for our wedding in Boston (from Clarks Summit, PA). I found their quality of photos, customer service, and value was better than the vendors in Boston. We hope to continue having Daniel capture our special moments for years to come despite where life takes us. He engaged us in the process of planning our wedding and the quality of his customer service leads his us to stick around for more.”

     “Daniel was a true asset to our wedding. He was professional, personable and most of all, FUN to work with! Our day went off without a hitch, and Daniel captured every important (no matter how small) moment. Looking at a photo even now, I can recall the exact moment or place when it was taken. The smiles, laughter, tears and joy were all beautifully captured for us and our family to enjoy each day…and for many years to come. On a more ‘routine’ review side, booking with Daniel was easy and hassle free. I’m glad we booked early! Our e-session was rescheduled a few times due to weather, and it was never a problem or hassle. Daniel was easily reachable via email (my preferred contact) at all times. The day of the wedding he arrived at the salon and stayed the whole day into the evening. We truly did not notice Daniel or his assistant most of the day, which (in the nicest way) was great! They were respectful during our traditional church ceremony as well. All of our images were received within the timeline, and ordering was easy and cost effective. Daniel is extremely personable, and even sat down for dinner with my family along with his wife after our e-session (which was a blast by the way). We truly could not be happier with our choice to use DSB and the experience we had with them. Looking forward to a family session in the years to come!”

   “My husband and I chose based on style and charisma. It was really important to us that Daniel considers his work to be an investment and it showed how much detail he would be putting into our wedding. We valued his authenticity and the importance placed on US being in charge. Price was important in the aspect that we had a budget that we had to stick to. His adaptability the day of made our whole wedding absolutely fabulous. It was definitely the best day of our lives and I’m so thankful for all of the special moments he caught without us knowing”.

   “Daniel had been the photographer at our friends’ wedding a few years back and when I saw their wedding pictures I immediately fell in love with his work. I made sure to follow Daniel and the company because I knew that if I got married one day he would be a top contender for my photographer. When I got engaged and started to look at vendors I brought my fiance to meet Daniel and upon leaving that meeting my fiance said that he didn’t want anyone else to take our wedding photos. It was Darkershadesofbrown or BUST! We had our engagement session with Daniel in October and it was a lot of fun. Daniel is so creative and has the knowledge of so many unique locations where you can have your photos done. Working with him is so much nicer than being stuck in a studio with the same old backdrops. We absolutely LOVED our photos and look forward to Daniel being our photographer on our wedding day in June. I know he will give us amazing photos to share with our family and friends for the rest of our lives. I will definitely recommend Daniel and Darkershadesofbrown to everyone and continue to use him as a photographer for all of our special moments throughout our lives.”

   “My husband and I knew Darkershadesofbrown Photography was the right choice for our wedding photography the first time we met Daniel. He took the time to meet with us, get to know us, and explain all about what he does. We felt comfortable immediately and couldn’t wait to work with him. Daniel was super flexible when we suggested having our engagement session out of town as well as rescheduling due to rain. By the time our wedding day arrived, we felt like he was a guest at our wedding and not a vendor. Daniel made us feel confident in front of the camera and we truly had so much fun shooting with him. In fact, we are looking forward to doing a Trash the Dress session! As for the photos, they speak for themselves. No matter how many times we look at them we are astonished at how Daniel and his assistant Brian were able to capture our relationship and personalities. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Darker Shades of Brown and are thankful to have made such a great friendship. Thanks again for the memories!”

     “We knew we made the right decision with Darkershadesofbrown Photography right from the start. Daniel met with us personally a day after I first contacted him and explained his services to us. Daniel was very personable and made himself available when we needed to get in contact with him. Our engagement pictures as well as wedding pictures came out beautifully, Daniel and his assistant were very thorough yet unobtrusive which was just what we wanted! Turn around time for the photos was very fast, especially during the busy wedding season! We would whole heartedly recommend Darkershadesofbrown to friends and family!”

“Working with Daniel Lanton was one of the best experiences I have ever had. From the first time that I saw his work, I was determined to have him for my wedding photographer.I was married in November of 2010, and although he was unavailable for the wedding day, I hired him to do a day after (trash the dress) session. At this point, this was not even in our budget but I HAD to have photos taken by Daniel.Daniel drove all the way to the Poconos to meet my husband and I, and it was as if we were old friends. We drove around and scouted the area for the best location (Daniel and his camera smushed into the back seat of our Dodge pickup, with a smile on his face the whole time) which was just another sign that Daniel was fully committed to providing the best photographs possible.We found a location and began taking pictures. Daniel made the whole experience completely comfortable and tons of fun!The experience of working with Daniel was exciting, fun, and definitely memorable, and the pictures that he took are beyond breathtaking. I KNEW they would be. It is almost four years later and people still talk about the pictures he took, and I still look at them regularly.If you are looking for a true professional who will create photos that are unique and memorable, and that will capture exactly what most photographers miss, turn to Daniel. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.”

   “Daniel was amazing! We liked him so much we used him for our engagement, wedding, trash the dress, and newborn pics! His pics speak for themselves. After showing them off, my brother, best friend, and work colleague all used him…and now my sister in law, who just got engaged and the first thing she said to me was, I’m using your photographer!”

“Daniel, choosing you to photograph our wedding was easily the best vendor decision we made while planning. You truly captured the essence of our wedding and, more importantly, you captured us. You worked tirelessly to capture countless moments with an accommodating, easygoing grace. We will never forget and will be forever thankful for your dedication in making our day special because we know you missed Indie’s journey home from the hospital so you could be with us. You have a gift for taking ordinary moments and giving them an artistic flair. We are amazed at the level of detail you gave to each and every shot. You are the only photographer I trust to capture memories as our family grows. Beyond your talent, you’re just a great guy. It also doesn’t hurt that you like good music! Thank you Daniel!”

    “I found Darkershadesofbrown Photography completely by accident and consider myself extremely lucky to have found him. After months of searching for a wedding photographer in the Pocono area, I stumbled upon his website. As I looked through his online galleries, I had a feeling that this was the photographer I wanted and sent up a prayer that he was available. After talking with Daniel I knew my gut feeling was right and we were lucky enough to be able to work with Daniel for our wedding in Sept 2010. Daniel was amazing to work with. He was answered all my questions, responded promptly, and went above and beyond in every aspect of photographing our engagement session and wedding. Our engagement and wedding photos exceeded all my expectations. They are simply AMAZING. I get chills every time I look at them and am instantly transported back to our wedding day. Everyone looks amazing in every photograph and he captured the little details and emotional moments that made our wedding special. We are so grateful to have had him photograph our wedding. I can not wait to share my wedding photos with my children and grandchildren. I would highly recommend Darker Shades of Brown to anyone and hope to work with Daniel again in the future.”

     “Daniel is a true artist when it comes to photography. He was able to capture all the love we feel in person and put it in a picture we can cherish forever. He did our engagement and wedding pictures and can’t wait for him to follow up with a family session this spring of us with our three little girls. He is the type of person you will keep calling throughout your life to capture those priceless moments so you can have them forever. I know I will keep his number close by! I highly recommend Daniel’s unique work, reliability, and professionalism to anyone looking for a photographer to trust with your wedding or any occasion you hold close to your heart.”

     “First of all, we would like to stress how comfortable it is to work with Daniel Lanton. We had a blast during our engagment session. It felt like we were spending the day with a close friend. Neither of us had never had our photos taken by a professional, and he made it feel completly natural. We are so thankful to have found such an incredible artist to capture our day in this unique and breathtakingly beautiful way. We definitly found our lifetime photographer! We can’t wait for our future baby photos!!! Love, The Zynda’s”

    “Daniel and his crew were absolutely amazing, and the best money I spent on our wedding. From start to finish working w Daniel was fun , refreshing, and stress free. Everyone who see’s our pictures are blown away and jealous. We did both an engagement session and trash the dress session, and each was like a seperate party. We had so much fun and Daniel made us so comfortable. I am not one to like to haven picture taken so I was surprised by how comfortable Daniel was able to make me.. My only regret is that I can’t have Daniel take all of my pictures for every event and for every day I want a picture of . When ever I hear someone needs a photographer I tell them if they can get on Daniels schedule , it will be the best decision they could make.”

We had our wedding in October ’13 and had a few rocky bumps along the way. After some trouble with our original photographer we decided to look for another one and boy were we glad we did. Daniel shot some superb pictures, capturing not only the merry vibe and festivities but the essence of our wedding location. The reason you spend months planning your wedding is because that place will become special to you for the rest of your life. Daniel was enthralled with the location and really took some gorgeous shots that brought out the landscape. Not only was he extremely amiable and willing to help, especially considering the short notice we gave him, but he really went above and beyond our expectations. We love the pictures and treasure the experience working with such a fine photographer. Thank you for giving us these amazing photos!
