Derek did a wonderful job with our wedding. We checked with many photographers before hiring him. He captured such memorable images of my partner and I. And felt so incredibly comfortable with him, and understanding the various needs especially for a gay wedding.

Derek and I were photographer and harpist at a recent wedding together, and he was delightful to work with. He graciously offered to take several photos of me with my harp for my files. I highly recommend him. Sincerely, Amy
