Welcome! I am Amos Darnell, owner and lead photographer for Soma Photography. Our mission is to provide creative works of art and lasting memories for our clients that will be cherished for generations.
I love to tell stories, it is just something that has always come naturally to me. The day I picked up a camera for the first time is when I realized that I didn’t have to tell stories verbally but I could do it even better visually. Every couple has a unique story to tell and it has become my passion to creatively tell it through emotional images that speaks the uniqueness of you. I truly believe this is what sets us apart from every other photographer out there. We focus on you. Your wedding day is not about the photographer or anyone else. Everything we do, from our first contact with each other, to the delivery of your album is purposely designed to ensure you have the best experience possible and feel special (because you are). We want you to look back on your wedding day a year, 5 years, and 25 years from now and instantly feel the emotion you had at the moment that image was taken.
Wedding photography is so much more than pulling together years of knowledge, experience, and creative flair. To me, photography, especially wedding photography, is about documenting and capturing authentic real emotion on of the most memorable days of your life. I have always been drawn to images that instantly cause an emotional response so naturally when I see emotional reactions happening I want to freeze them so that they can be cherished for years.
I have been photographing weddings for five years and absolutely love every aspect of it. It is challenging, fun, and, yes, exhausting but it has provided me so many opportunities to connect with amazing couples who I have the honor to call friends.
