    Best photographer ever!

    Derek was such an awesome photographer! He was very outgoing and our wedding party loved him! He did a great job of getting as many photos as we could in the amount of time we had. I’m so excited to see the photos and am SO glad we chose Derek to document the best day of our lives! If you are looking for someone who is going to take some stress off rounding up everyone for pictures, making sure they are all posed nicely, and making sure he gets the best shot possible, Derek is your guy!

    Derek was our wedding photographer and he truly did an amazing job. I would recommend him without any hesitation. From our engagement photos, to the beautiful guest book he created for us, to shooting our wedding day, everything was perfect. Throughout the day, he reminded me not to worry about a thing, and I truly didn't have to because he was a step ahead of me, a calming force, and an amazingly fun photographer. He made everyone feel at ease and was so accommodating to any requests . He even helped with some logistics the day of; he was the one I called to figure out where the groom was when I arrived at the church (to ensure we wouldn't cross paths), because he was the only one who answered his phone. ;) Anything we threw at him, he was right there making everyone laugh and capturing the moments of our special day. We never felt even a little bit rushed or like we were on a timeline; Derek was with us from when I got ready in the morning until midnight. We have had several friends/family members mention that they LOVED our photographer. Do yourself a favor and book with Derek!!!
