DB Photography x Sykes-Fernando Wedding
Me and my husband dated for 5 years before he proposed to me on 12/22/2019. We had a small window of time to plan and have our wedding because moving in August. Everyone told us it was near impossible to plan a wedding in less than 1 year, let alone 6 months. However, here we are 1 month post-wedding that was on 06/01/2019. Within that time planning for a wedding, finding the right photographer for the job was difficult, especially since that was the most important part for me. Long story short, none of the photographers I looked up stood out and were way over-priced in my opinion. One day, I attended my mom's Zumba class and another attendee overheard that i was getting married. She recommended DB photography because she was very pleased with his pics of them for their engagement and wedding photos. In addition, Derrick offers reasonable prices for excellent work. I immediately went home and looked him up. Not to sound cliche, but as soon as I saw Derrick's work i was BLOWN away! His photos are very CLEAR and crisp, classy, unique, and make POC (people of color) look damn good! I had to book him. Upon, meeting Derrick, he is very friendly and sociable. He makes you feel comfortable with him like you've known him forever. On the wedding day, he spent the ENTIRE day with us. It had to be over a 12 hour day but still his price was reasonable. From start to finish, his work was quality. Me and my husband are no models, but Derrick made us look Magazine sharp in our pics. He helped us pose and brought out of best qualities in the photos. We plan on booking him for our maternity and family photos in the future. He has become our go-to family photographer :DSent on 07/01/2019
