“Jim and I loved working with Daria. She was approachable and easy to get a hold off to answer our questions right off the bat. She worked great with our dogs, which was super important to both of us. She did a great job with the album and I felt like she really got a feel for us as a couple and our personalities shine through (she definitely picked the right photo for our album cover!). I've gotten a TON of compliments on my wedding photos and everyone wants to know who did them! We are doing a one year anniversary shoot with Daria next year and
we already are super excited for it! We can't wait to work with her again!”

“I seriously cannot recommend Daria Kapitonova enough for anyone looking for a photographer. She is so nice and amazing at what she does! And she was willing to hike Letchworth with us yesterday to get some amazing pics!”


~ Amanda Rose Petrinec & Murphy Balon

“We can’t recommend Daria at Petit-Eclair Photography & Design enough. We had such a good time doing engagement photos which we had always assumed were far beyond our budget. If you have a wedding coming up check her out!”


~ Kate & Jerry Hall

“Daria was the best photographer we could've ever asked for! She took beautiful, creative photos, both posed and candid, that captured every moment of the night. The quality of the photos is outstanding! She communicated so well with us in the months leading up to the wedding, and was always very responsive via text and email. My guests and family also loved her, she was so personable and nice to work with! I looked into a lot of wedding photographers during my search, and I'm so glad we chose her. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer for a special occasion!!.”


~ Michelle Fox & Zak Piper

“Daria photographed our wedding AND our engagement photos! We absolutely loved working with her! She made it so fun and easy!!! Highly recommend!!”


~ Jaclyn & Logan Peck

“Highly recommend. Daria did an amazing job and
was incredibly easy to work with. If we ever need another photographer I will definitely be giving her a call. Couldn't
be happier.”


~ Shannon & Patrick Baerman

“You are an amazing photographer and wonderful person. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding and capturing these precious moments that we will never forget. You had so many creative ideas and we are simply amazed by the outcome. It was a pleasure getting to know you. We can't thank you enough. We are so grateful!”


~ Karen & Bill Nicholls

“We highly highly recommend Daria of Petit-Eclair Photography & Design! She is so amazing to work with and her photos are absolutely wonderful! She shot both our engagement and wedding photos; her calm, kind and professional personality made the day go so smoothly, and I was so impressed with how stunning the photos turned out! She’s an absolute gem and so talented!.”


~ Priscilla & Joe Hennig

“Daria was amazing. She is very personable and made us feel very comfortable. Not to mention the pictures turned out so great and in such a timely manner. We were able to download our photos the next day! She is very talented and passionate about what she does. I would highly recommend her for any occasion.”


~ Caitlin & Luis Malone

Daria was great! I’ll be honest, I hate pictures. However, she made our engagement and wedding day special through the photographs. I couldn’t recommend another person more highly! I still hate pictures - but it’s worth capturing these moments. And Daria is best to do it no matter what the occasion may be - e.g engagement, wedding, birthday, anniversary, newborn, etc.


~ Andrew & Samantha Bittner

“Daria is a FANTASTIC photographer - I'd recommend her to anyone. She did both my engagement photos as well as my wedding photos, and I plan to use her again in the future for all my family photos. She's very reasonably priced and really goes above and beyond for her clients. The turn around time for our photos was also great and really unexpected - we got married on 6/22 and we already have all of our photos from our big day (in way less than a month). In short, Daria is WONDERFUL and our pictures are drop dead GORGEOUS (we get a lot of compliments on them all the time). You simply can't go wrong with choosing her for your photographer for ANY occasion!.”

Daria and her husband exceeded our expectations in every single way imaginable!!! One of the best decisions we made that day was to pick them. Amazing talent! I can't even believe some of the shots they were able to capture.

~ Bridget & Tyler Turkington

What a fabulous couple to work with! Daria and Mike did an amazing job capturing our special day! Daria has a very artistic way about her photography and is easily able to capture beautiful, unique photos! If she is available, scoop her up for your day!


~ Kimberly & Ryan Drake

“Daria is such a sweet and beautiful person! She took our engagement pictures. She helped us with the entire process, right from suggesting outfits, to picking the location, recommending props and helping on the site with poses and our props. She was very patient with us. It was our first photoshoot and we are both awkward in front of the camera, but she made us feel so comfortable with her constant encouragement. She has great experience in taking portraits, which was evident from her pose suggestions and the way she used the sunset light in our pictures. They turned out amazing! Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!”


~  Janhavi & Piyush Pawar

Everything was Perfect! We loved everything about working with Petit-Eclair! She did our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out even more perfect than we had hoped! We love the techniques used to make the pictures pop and focusing on certain things! Thank you for a beautiful job!


~ Sarah & Adam Tramonto

Made my day so special! I promised Daria that I would have someone to help get everyone together, but we were all so distracted that she took the reins and delivered the most beautiful pictures. I sent her examples of what I wanted and she exceeded them. She and her husband were so amazing, especially with such a disorganized wedding, but she pulled it through and gave us a great result!


~ Aileen & Payton Kish

Thank you Daria. You and your husband captured our memories of this day. Daria, so glad I came across your work. You listened! You were so organized, creative, professional, and care free and were able to bring that out in us.


~ MaryAnn & Todd Conklin

Excellent professionalism. Everything was right on point. She had a lot of great poses. She was amazing. All the professional pictures are beautiful. I felt so complete on my wedding day. I would not have ask for any other photographer.


~ Christina & Nathaniel Williams
