Hi! I'm Darbey Roberts. I know what you're thinking, "I thought this chick's last name was Delaney!?" Surprise! It's not! That's actually my middle name, my great-grandma liked to say that she *helped* name me after a character on her favorite soap opera. My mom denies that and likes to pretend she came up with my name all by herself.
Anyways! I'm a wedding photographer based in Hickory, North Carolina. I love being part of a wedding day. I become so invested in my couples and their relationships that I'm usually in tears before the end of the night (the father/daughter dances pulls on my heart strings every time)! Having a beautiful wedding day is awesome, and trust me it will make for some amazing photos! But, I can't tell you how much I love looking through my lens and seeing just how in love a couple is! Two people in love truly makes my job so fun!
I know exactly what you and your fiancé are going through right now. Wedding planning is so exciting, but can be tough! See that super handsome man in the vest? I know it's hard to believe, but I managed to get that dreamboat to marry me (You can tell Thistle, my dog, was just as excited as we were about us tying the knot)! We planned our wedding for over two years while I was still in school. Talk about stress.
After planning my own wedding for so long it was the best feeling in the world to FINALLY get to sit back and enjoy my wedding day and see all the hard work that I put into it. When I photograph my couple's weddings I try with every bit of my being to give them the same relaxed wedding day that my photographer (and many other vendors) were able to give me.
Darbey Delaney Photography is for you if...
I have a few different packages, but they all include an engagement session, a second shooter, and printing rights to all delivered images that you'll receive on a USB. Some of my packages also include extra coverage, a bridal sessions, one year anniversary session, and a print or two! Give me a shout and we can talk about which wedding package fits the needs of your wedding day! I can also build a custom package just for you!
Just want some cute pictures of you and a special someone? Then you need a portrait session! This kind of session can be anything like a surprise engagement, typical engagement, bridal, anniversary, and even senior or family photos! These sessions are a great way to have a fun afternoon!
