The Bio

My name is Darnell Marbury and I am the proud owner of HD Photography. My passion for photography started when I purchased my first sports car, a 1987 IROC-Z28 Camaro "NTHEZ2B". I would always find time to wash and wax my car, park on the Village Green with several friends in Indian Head and burn up 2 or 3 rolls of film just snapping photos of that beautiful car. I learned that with every photo I took, the shots got better and better. Several years later came the age of digital photography and that really got me hooked. My best friend saw my photos that I took and asked me to take photos at his wedding and that started my entire photography career.

Over the past several years, my business has grown and become more successful. I have been fortunate enough to meet tons of celebrities along the way and actually pose with some of them. The success has afforded me new computers, new printers, new cameras, new equipment new staff members, and a new attitude! I am able to cover all of your photography needs such as Weddings, Engagements, Family Portraits, Senior Portraits, Sports, Boudoir, Corporate Events, Community Events, Birthday Parties, Holiday Parties, Bah Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs. I make your special day fun and full of laughter but at the same time I keep it professional.

Contact me to get booked for your shoot today. My schedule is extremely flexible and weekend shoots are always welcomed. Email: or call: 301-752-5539.

Portrait Pricing

HD Photography now offers you to the opportunity to do your photo shoots in a state of the art studio!  No need to wait for perfect weather to get your portrait needs taken care of.  This studio has everything you need for a successful shoot, including various backdrops, props,  professional hair stylist and makeup artist .  Details available upon request.

Portrait packages are specific to your needs and expectations so pricing will not be the same for all customers.  For this reason, we ask that you provide as many details as possible about your requirements for your portrait session.  Pricing will be based on mileage to/from location, number of people in the shoot and the amount of time needed for the shoot.

Once the shoot is complete, all photos will be added to a password protected proof gallery that will contain low resolution images. Do not order any images from this gallery. Once you select the photos that you wish to have re-touched & edited, the high resolution edited images will be reloaded to a public gallery for ordering. This gallery can also be password protected at your request. 

Wedding Pricing

Weddings are specific to your needs and expectations so pricing will not be the same for every customer.  For this reason, I ask that you provide as many details up front about your requirements for your special day and a quote will be created for you based on the info that you provide.  The coverage is generally for the  pre-wedding, wedding and reception.  The price will also include a 2nd shooter to help cover the entire day, travel to/from location(s) within 40 miles of Indian Head, MD, unlimited photos taken throughout the day, color correcting and editing all images, creating a personal online gallery for you, your family and friends to access the photos, allowing you to download entire high resolution gallery directly from my website to your computer and providing you with a photo release form to have your images printed at the photo lab of your choice.

HD Photography also offers video coverage for your wedding day.  We will capture high resolution video clips throughout the day and create a 3-5 minute video with music to highlight all of the special moments captured during the day.  A price quote will be given upon request.       

Special Event Pricing

Special event pricing starts at $300.00 per hour for the first 2 hours and $200.00 per hour after that. There is a 2 hour minimum requirement to book all special events. Please keep in mind that time spent for edits will need to be added to the cost as well.  All photos will be uploaded to my website in the "Special Requests" gallery and will be password protected.  You can download the high resolution images directly from that gallery.
