BrightStar Photography specializes in weddings, commercial, and sports photography. Daren Whitaker is the sole photographer for the company; all photographs shown on the website and during client meetings are Daren's work. Below is a brief description of our services.
I love what I do so much. The idea that two people can find each other, and forsake all others to be together in the face of whatever life may bring is still fascinating to me. I find inspiration in truth and the honesty that two people share with one another only when they are truly in love. I have this in my life, and I take such pleasure in preserving it for those around me.
My work is simple and real. It happens with no effort on my part, I am only an observer. I find that the most amazing things happen when no one else is looking, so I strive to be as open as possible to capture it.
I take pride in offering you the best coverage for your special day with pricing and packages to fit your needs. BrightStar Photography includes online proofing with all packages. I strive to offer you a mix of both traditional and photojournalistic styles. Any photo can be printed in black and white, tinting, selective color, and sepia.,we also offer a wide variety of leather bound albums, coffee table books, and parent albums. We can even print your wedding invitations.
Commercial and Product Photography
BrightStar Photography will also work with you to meet all of your commercial photographic needs. I have published work in a variety of magazines including Southern Lady, TeaTime, Taste of the South, Just CrossStitch, Sew Beautiful, Sampler & Antique Needlework. We can create sharp, professional images for your website, catalogs, or other print publications.
Sports and Portrait Photography
Remember picture-taking day when you were in school? The photographer would come and take a team photo and a shot or two of you posing with the basketball or soccer ball? In fact, most school and sports photographers still shoot this way. Perhaps your daughter is enrolled in a dance class and the individual shot of your child is one-dimensional and uninteresting? Or has the dance studio offered portrait packages for recital night and you've spent a great deal of money only to be disappointed in the pictures? Daren's unique style can capture those special moments that simply cannot be re-created in a studio or with a posed portrait. He will show up at your event, either team sports or individual, dance recitals, etc., and focus on capturing true-to-life images.
BrightStar Photography can also create family and bride/groom engagement photos that you can be proud of. We are one of the few photography companies that will not charge you extra for on-location portrait sessions; in fact, that's how we prefer to shoot. Nature and the environment can produce some of the most touching portraits. We truly believe that you and your family will photograph best "as you are," in simple, casual clothes and in a simple, natural setting. Want the studio experience? We can create it right in your own home with our professional backgrounds and lighting, in an environment you and your children are comfortable and familiar with.
