What our Clients are saying


"I am lucky enough to have had 2 photoshoots with Willow Street Pictures. The first photos of my mother and her two Jack Russell’s were so amazing we wanted to do a photoshoot with the entire family!

Willow Street Pictures is truly a ONE OF A KIND photography studio. Darren has an uncanny ability to capture the best photos of people (especially the ones in the family who say they’re not photogenic, or hate having their photos taken) and pets.

They can transform the most ordinary/everyday scenes, poses and props into the most stunning, jaw-dropping statement photographs. The entire team is so much fun to work with and the results are so unique. I still find myself staring at our photos in awe. The pictures they took are stunning and truly capture the fun spirit of our family."

Lynn L. - Chesterbrook, PA

“This experience was truly great. My mother and I have a family photoshoot every ten years, but since our last portrait a lot of life has happened; a lot of good and a lot of bad. But, the photographer was able to create and capture so much happiness between me and my mom. When we went over the family pictures, it made me think of how much strength we've had to get through things together, how much things have changed, and how our love for one another has carried us through everything. These portraits mean everything to me, and I'm so glad that Willow Street Pictures was able to provide us with an amazing experience and outcome. I'm sure in another ten years, we will be back!”
Jordan L. - Philadelphia, PA

"It’s been a few years since our last family portrait. We are not the family that runs out and gets pictures taken every year, so what we loved about Willow Street Pictures was how patient the creative team was and how the artwork is top-quality. 

Darren came to our home and captured our entire family. It was incredibly special to have our family captured in front of our home because this is where we've grown up and where we get together for family dinners. Having a stunning portrait of not only my parents but with my grandparents and siblings is incredible. 

I highly recommend Willow Street Pictures if you're looking to create a legacy for your family to enjoy for years to come."

Ensure Your Franklin, PA Engagement Photos are Stunning with These Simple Tips

Heating And Cooling Companies in Adamsville, FL

Being engaged is such an exciting time. It’s so much fun envisioning what your future will hold, and planning one of the most momentous days in your life: your wedding day. It can be easy to get caught up in all of the excitement and the wonderful chaos and forget just how magical this special time is. Be sure to make the most of your elation, happiness, and the promise of the future with a professional engagement photo session by a professional Franklin, PA family portrait photographer.

It won’t be long before you and your fiancé are Mr. and Mrs. and you’ll be looking at pictures to recall this blissful, yet short, time in your lives. To make the most of your photoshoot, here are some simple tips to keep in mind from an award-winning, nationally recognized Franklin, PA family portrait photographer that specializes in engagement photos.

Wear Comfortable Attire

It goes without saying that you want to look great, but that doesn’t mean that your clothing has to be uncomfortable; in fact, that’s something you definitely don’t want. So many couples make the mistake of wearing form-fitting, stiff, and stuffy outfits for their engagement photos, and instead of feeling confident and happy, they’re constantly pulling, adjusting, and fussing with their clothing, and their discomfort shows in the images. It goes without saying that you want to look your best, and in order to look your best, you need to feel comfortable, so make sure that both you and your soon-to-be Mr. or Mrs. choose outfits that you look good in – and feel good in, too.

Choose a Great Location

The setting will have a direct impact on your engagement photos. A quality Franklin, PA family portrait photographer will travel wherever you desire, so don’t be afraid to choose a great destination for your photoshoot; a unique place that really speaks to you and your fiancé. Whether it’s a covered bridge in Chester County, a snow-covered mountaintop in Chester County, a field of wildflowers, or a chic luxury hotel in the heart of the city; don’t hold back! Select an inspiring venue for your engagement photos that reflects your interests, your relationship, and that perhaps hints at the theme or style of your upcoming wedding.

Keep the Sun in Mind

If possible, try scheduling your engagement photoshoot just before sunrise or sunset. These times of the day are often referred to as the “magical hour”, as the sun is at the perfect vantage point and it creates the most romantic lighting. Your engagement photos will be backlit with breathtaking golden light that will perfectly illuminate the love that you and your fiancé share.

Be Yourselves

There’s no need to put on a show; if you want your engagement photos to look authentic, be yourselves! If you’re normally understated, wear your hair simple, and only wear a touch of lip gloss, a full-length ball gown, perfectly coiffed hair, and a full face of makeup probably isn’t the way to go. Sure, you’re probably going to want to trade in the jeans and T-shirt that you normally wear for something a little more dressy, and you might want to put on a touch more makeup and style your hair, but don’t look completely different than you normally do; otherwise, your engagement photos will look completely unnatural.
