About the panelists:
Dan Aguirre is a New York native who moved to New England for a degree, a change of scenery, and to pursue a career in photography. At the Art Institute of Boston, Dan learned how to combine his love of photojournalism and portraiture photography which has allowed him to find his true passion: photographing weddings. After years in the business, Dan has had the privilege of meeting many amazing couples, families, and unique individuals who have helped him realize that two things are always true in the world of wedding photography: No two weddings are the same & each one must be treated with the passion and care they deserve.
Darlene DeVita is a native of Charlotte, NC. She earned a BFA degree in Fine-Art Photography, at the Art Institute of Boston (Now, LUCAD – Lesley College of Art and Design).
