There is little that can be said in words that can't be felt in a photograph.
Brian and Derica only photograph Weddings, Engagements and Elopements. That's the first thing you should know about them, they specialize. Brian has tried other things, portraits, families, even a bit of sports and travel photography. It's not his thing. If there isn't a chance for a couple making out in a photo, he has little interest in taking pictures. Kidding, but not.
A little credential drop here: Brian has been a wedding photographer since 1984. Derica has been a Professional Photographer (Brian dragged her into weddings about 10 years ago) since about 1995.
Some things to know about Brian
1) He is a smartass.
2) He is sarcastic.
3) He doesn't pretend to be a hipster in any way.
4) He doesn't make grand claims he can't back up.
5) Brian and Derica will be the best Vendors you hire for your wedding. (See #4)
The best photographs come from cooperation and heart. If you're not into it, it's not going to be great. If your photographer isn't into it, same thing. All Brian knows how to do is Wedding Photography, and he and Derica are always into it. Read their reviews, see what clients thought of them, check out their work, and let them show what they can create for you.

If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, please stop and read this! This will be hands-down the best vendor decision you make. Brian and his wife Derica could honestly charge whatever they wanted for their services because they are that good! However, he had mentioned to me that he used to charge much more, but it felt wrong when he knew he could do it for less and make someone’s dream a reality – wow, tell me that doesn’t just say a lot write there. I could write for hours, but I’ll keep it to the point for you brides-to-be. I relied heavily on vendor reviews to make my decisions. I can honestly say I selected the absolute best vendors when it came to value and service! Brian C. Idocks also included our Engagement Session with our package, and it was the perfect way to get to know him and wife. Brian is absolutely hilarious (sarcastic – right up my alley), which made the day so much more calming for both my husband and myself. I promise that you cannot get a better photographer for the price! The sneak peek image he sent me of my wedding is absolutely stunning – I cannot wait to share them.

We were very pleased with our experience having Brian and Derica do our wedding photography. We chose them because we were very impressed with the work that they displayed on their website. Even before we met them, we could tell that they were very experienced just based on reading their website and their commentary on different wedding related items. We thought that their pricing was very competitive and seemed to be a good value. Brian was very easy to communicate with via email. He called me before the wedding to discuss how things would work on the day of the wedding and just the details of it all. They were at the hotel early on the day of the wedding and arrived to my hotel room on time. I really liked how Brian helped to direct how you pose during the pictures, especially since I am not the most comfortable person in front of a camera. His advice was very helpful, and he has an amazing attention to detail. He has an expansive amount of experience from which to draw, and he uses that knowledge to help you have better wedding photos. He will definitely let you know what is opinion is regarding a topic, and I found that to be helpful as well. He seems to be very passionate about his work, and I think that it comes across in his work. Overall, we were very happy with our experience with Brian and Derica, and we would recommend them wholeheartedly.
