NJ Engagement Photographer

Congratulations on your engagement!

This time in your life is one you'll want to remember for years to come, and Philadelphia engagement photos are the perfect way to get comfortable with your photographer, capture the joy, love and anticipation you feel as you prepare for your wedding day.

Darryl is amazing. Great guy, he wants to get to know the couple to give them what they want for their day. He's reasonably priced for the high high quality of his work. He's worth it! Highly recommended. - Brittany

NJ Engagement Photographer

I'm Darryl Barnett, a New Jersey based wedding and portrait photographer who loves my job and all that goes with it. The primary areas I serve are New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware, but I've also worked in New York and Maryland.

My portfolio includes Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, family portraits, headshots and commercial shoots, but my specialty is wedding photography. Over the past eight years, I've had the privilege of being a photographer on over 500 weddings, helping brides and grooms document their special day in a photojournalistic fashion. Nothing makes me happier than to see the look of joy in a couple's face as they look through their completed wedding album for the first time, reliving their special day.

I'd be honored to be considered as your engagement and wedding photographer to help document your story. Feel free to contact me so we can discuss your goals for your photography!

Darryl is very passionate and great at what he does. It was our first time getting pictures done by a professional photographer. The whole process was enjoyable and fun! Not once did he look at the time. We did not feel rushed to get the pictures over and done with. He took his time and captured MANY beautiful shots! He also takes the time out to get to know you. Great person and great photographer. - Dee

Frequently Asked Questions

0016_Amanda and Alex

Absolutely! The best option is for us to have a phone conversation to discuss your vision (beach, rustic, city etc.) then I'll send you a few links of highlights from recent sessions for you to look at.

Most sessions usually last about 1 to 1.5 hours and you’ll typically end up with 100 – 150 images in your online gallery.

Standard turnaround time for delivery of your engagement photos is 4 to 6 weeks after the session date—however, depending on the time of year, it may be sooner. 


If you're booking me for wedding photography, it will be added to your wedding photography package and agreement. If you’re just looking to book a standalone engagement session, simply fill out the contact form, and it will be booked as a standalone session.

I have the most flexibility Monday through Thursday as most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are booked with weddings. However, I do occasionally have a weekend date available.
