Here’s a sample of what our clients have to say about us:


“If I could give six stars, I would! The week before my wedding, I was unexpectedly in the market for photographers, and Darla and Melissa were able to fit us in at the last minute! Darla and I had phone and email conversations about specific shots and the style I would like, and the day of the wedding went so smoothly! Both Darla and Melissa had a flexible, fun, joyful energy that really added to our day. They posted the edited shots for us to look through ONE WEEK after our wedding day, and the shots look absolutely fantastic. My whole family is just thrilled with the results. If you are looking for friendly, professional, kind, talented photographers - who are affordable, too! - I cannot recommend Darla and Melissa highly enough.”  - Meghan J., Bride at Churchill Manor


“We love, love, LOVE our photos!  We could not have been happier with the way they turned out…Melissa and Darla did a fantastic job of capturing not only our special day, but our personalities as well.  We had such a great time that day from beginning to end and are so happy that our photos reflect that!” Abby D., Bride at Silverado Resort


“As a coach and a parent, I have endured many team photo sessions but no one makes it as easy as Darla and Melissa.  They were able to herd 50 rugby players and make us all look good!”  - Phil Hansell, Head Coach, Napa Stormers rugby team


“I highly recommend Melissa and Darla……Couples always rave about them, their product, and their relaxed, approachable style. “ – Kimmie Husted, Director of Sales, Tra Vigne


“Best team photo EVER!” Paige D, Baseball, Soccer and Lacrosse Mom


“Because of their wonderful pictures and ease of working with Melissa and Darla at Classic Photography (for family portraits as well as engagement and wedding photos for my daughter), we have hired them for our Annual Survivors Reunion Dinner and look forward to an ongoing relationship with them.” Lois Husted, Emergency Management Coordinator, Queen of the Valley Medical Center


“Both the results and the process of photographing cover photos for Inside Napa Valley exceeded our expectations.  Whether shooting business executives at Domaine Chandon, shop owners at the Napa Town Center, or ice skaters to promote Napa On Ice, Darla and Melissa delivered beautiful photos and made everything easy for us.”  Brenda Speth Publisher, Napa Valley Register


“OMG I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Everything)…….was AMAZING and perfect!!!!!!!!” – Kandace L., Bride at Yountville Golf Club


“My favorite picture of all time!”  Jennifer M., Napa Little League Board Member


"For the past 14 years, I have been using Classic Photography for my volleyball team photos. The opportunity to use local photographers who do exceptional work is something I take pride in. Darla and Melissa have consistently put together affordable, quality, photo shoots for my teams. Players and parents are always impressed with their work. They consistently bring a simple style to the table which captures the athletes in visual artistic form unique to any other sports team photographer I have worked with." - Kelly VanWinden, Volleyball


“I understand Melissa and Darla of Classic Photography are providing you with a proposal to take over all your team photos. I am happy to provide you with Napa United’s perspective. Classic Photography has been our team-photo choice for the past three years. We used a larger photography service before them but decided to use a local business instead. We had reservations that they could pull off managing our 100+ teams at Napa United. Lucky for us, our reservations were completely wiped away. I am amazed every time with how efficiently Classic Photography can organize teams of 4 and 5 year-olds all the way up to 18-year old soccer players! They deliver on all their deadlines and can work with the demands of Napa Valley’s largest youth-sports organization! I highly recommend Classic Photography for your team-photo needs.” - Peter Weber, Executive Director Napa United

“I cannot say enough about Darla, Melissa and the team at Classic Photography. After using a few different photographers in the past for our athletic program, we have come to use Classic Photography exclusively. Darla and Melissa are professional, friendly, communicative, efficient and most importantly, they deliver absolutely beautiful photos. They have a wide range of photography packages and sports items, so there is always something for everyone. We look forward to working with them every year!” - Jessica Martin, School Counselor/Activities Director St. Apollinaris School
