"I decided to book a photographer for our yearly trip to Destin, from Texas. I am pretty big on researching work on instagram. I found Audrey Darke Photography through #destinphotography hashtags. Her work was amazing, I loved her touch on edits, plus the natural way everyone looked in their family photos. It didn't look so "played out." I can go on and on about this photography business. I want to give a big thanks to Audrey for being so accommodating, understanding, patient, and friendly towards my family. We had a pretty big issue we stumbled upon when vacationing here in Destin and she went out of her way to assure we got some family photos one way or another. Again, Thank you so much. You all definitely won't regret booking a session!" - Angela R.

What do we do if it’s raining during our session?

If, in the opinion of the Photographer, inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the creation of a successful session to the artistic standards of Photographer, Photographer may elect to use an alternate location or to reschedule the session. Photographer will notify the Client at least 12 hours for morning sessions and 4 hours in advance for afternoon/evening session and will base the decision off of local weather forecasts. Photographer's policy is that if it is a 60% chance of rain or more, the session will be rescheduled; UNLESS, client chooses to go forward with session and work with photographer to find optional covered areas. If the chance of rain is less than 60%, Photographer will leave it up to the Client to decide whether to reschedule and Photographer will inform Client of the implications of shooting in light rain or inclement weather.

How long until we can expect to see our photos from our session?

My turn around time is 2-4 weeks. It just depends on how busy I am!

Yes, they do!

Can we have the unedited images or RAW’s from our shoot?

No, I do not give my clients the RAW images.

How long is our gallery online?

Your online gallery will be available to you all for 3 months. Once it is close to expiring you will receive emails reminding you to make sure you have them downloaded.

If you wish to have it reopened after it closes there is an unarchiving fee.

Do you put all images in the online gallery?

All the fully edited images that are up to Audrey Darke Photography standards will be uploaded to the online gallery which will then be emailed to the client.

When do sessions start?

Morning sessions they take place between 7 and 9 AM.

Can I bring bring my dog? Can we bring props?

Of course! I would be a little sad if you didn’t bring your dog. However, please keep in mind dogs are not allowed on the beach along the gulf coast with the exception of a few dog beaches located in PCB and Pensacola Beach.

Do you have any recommendations for locations?

Don't worry I got you! I have an entire list of great locations that you can pick from for full and extended family sessions. They are divided up into what you are going for (beach, city, etc)!

You will get exclusive access to this list once booked!
