We met Darren when he did our engagement shoot in NY back in 2011. We loved his photos and were very happy to hear that he would accompany us for our wedding on a relatively remote island in Mexico. Darren was very responsive when we were organising logistics and showed up on the island in excellent spirits despite having to travel on "every form of travel except a horse or a camel" in order to get to us. We loved having him with us for the three days - he fit in perfectly and became one of the family. He was extremely professional and relaxed, coping with everything a destination wedding could throw at him! We even had a medical emergency which prevented us doing our 'trash the dress' shoot, and he was extremely lovely and got up at 5am the next day to do it then instead. His photos are amazing and really reflected the style and attitude of the wedding. I would highly recommend Esvy and hope to find an excuse to use them again in the future!

Darren and Esvy Photography is simply the best. I recommend Darren to every person I know because not only is he extremely talented, he always handles his work and our working relationship with absolute care. He has an artistic eye for style and grace. He is not only a photographer, but also a confidante and supporter on my wedding day and the days leading up to it. This is what sets him apart from all other photographers. Every bride knows that the photographs is one of the most important parts of your special day as it memorializes the moments forever. I am beyond satisfied with my experience and look forward to more photography shoots with him in the future! Book Esvy Photography today!

Just to set the stage on our selection process when looking for a photographer: when planning our wedding we placed such great importance on finding the right photographer that after booking our venue, this was next up on our list! We felt that having these memories in photos was a crucial part of the day as it only happens once!
With that being said, we could not be happier with our choice of selecting Darren and Esvy Photography! Darren has an amazing eye for capturing a moment and he is a pleasure to work with. He is personable, reliable, easy to communicate with, responsive, and takes beautiful photos. We are totally satisfied with the outcome of our photos and our album. Having worked with Darren makes me wish that I could have another wedding and hire him all over again!

Darren was absolutely incredible from the day I met with him up until today. He is responsive, accurate, and most importantly an INCREDIBLE photographer. I got my photos back from our wedding before I could blink, and I have to say I am 200% satistfied with his services. They are perfect in every way and we have not stopped getting compliments!
I highly reccomend Darren for anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He is one of a kind, and a pleasure to work with!

Working with Darren was wonderful. The quality of the photographs were exceptional, and well worth the price. We would highly recommend Esvy Photography, and look forward to possibly using them again.

We used Esvy Photography for our Engagement Shoot and Wedding Day in Spring 2012.
We loved Darren when we happened to do an engagement shoot with him when he came to London. We'd been planning not to bother with a photographer (too many were over complicated and had too many trendy filters) but he really changed our minds - with classic, simple & pretty photography that really captured the day.
We decided we needed him to fly back for our wedding! Darren was incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and made us feel relaxed and comfortable both days. The photos from the engagement shoot and the wedding came out beautiful and everyone loves them!

Esvy Photography photographed our wedding July 2012 and it was truly a wonderful experience. From beginning to end, my expectations were far exceeded - from the professionalism to the attention to detail along with his ability to cater to our very intimate ceremony/reception style. Our family was very comfortable with the friendly presence and ability to photograph in a non-imposing way. The photographs themselves are beautiful, capturing the very essence of the mood and feel of our special day while adding an artistic element that makes our photos unique and "one-of-a-kind". We really couldn't have asked for anything more. I would definitely hire Esvy in the future!

Esvy shot my June 2012 camp wedding weekend. They did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments from our wedding. They were there for all of our events over 3 days and never tired at their duties.
I highly recommend them. They are not only great photographers, but they are also friendly and professional.

Esvy Photography and Darren Sabino photographed our wedding reception last year and was everything we could have hoped for in a photographer! He is very fun and personable as well as being an amazing photographer! We have beautiful traditional and fun artistic shots of our reception and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!

I used Esvy for my wedding in March 2011 and they exceeded my expectations with their professionalism, insight, and amazing talent. They were very punctual on our wedding day and went beyond being just our photographer by helping us set up the reception hall! The photos came out beautiful and we've received thousands of compliments on them.

My husband and i interviewed a lot of photographers. We really wanted someone who was going to capture our personalities and really capture the essence of us as a couple. When meeting with Darren, my husband and i knew instantly that he would be the perfect photographer for us. His attention to detail and eye for the perfect picture is just incredible. He is not one of those cookie cutter photographers who do the same cliche pictures. Darren gets you comfortable in front of the camera and he just snaps away until he gets that picture picture. It is evident by the pictures he takes that Darren loves what he does. We got married November 16th and i received my pictures already. We were beyond happy with our pictures and cant wait to start putting together our album! Awesome awesome work!

Photographer & Owner, Darren, of Esvy Photography exceeded our expectations! Destinations weddings typically come in packages with cookie cutter vendors (photog, cake, flowers, etc.), which is great for some brides. Means less work on your part. However, if you want custom quality best to pick your own vendors. Received a referral on Esvy Photography and Darren was very attentive and flexible right out the gate. We did a photo shoot of a "date night" on the strip in Vegas the day before the wedding, and Darren doubled as our photog and personal caddie. Few days prior to the wedding, he scouted out the ceremony site in Red Rocky Canyon to ensure we would get the best light and sunset on the big day. The day of the wedding, Darren was on top of every shot and paid such attention to detail. He knows what the end result should goes to great lengths to make sure the shot is perfect. For any of you destination brides trying to decide on photography, talk to Darren with Esvy Photography. We just tied the knot on 11.27.13 and Darren was kind enough to give us quite a few sample photos to tide us over the next month. The quality is five star, and he was so pleasant to work with. So ecstatic we went with Esvy Photography!!!!
