When we were looking for a wedding photographer, our resort wedding coordinator highly recommended Derek to us. Choosing a photographer wasn't an easy decision for us because there were so many things to consider and being from out of town it was difficult for us to meet with all the vendors. However, on our wedding planning trip to Oahu, Derek agreed to meet us and the minute we met him, we both got a good vibe. During our meeting, he showed us all his work, took the time to understand our needs rather than imposing, and developed a strong rapport with us by getting to know us. Overall, it didn't take much convincing that Derek was the photographer for our special day. Throughout the year leading up to our wedding, we kept in contact with him and he was so helpful throughout the planning process. On our big day, Derek was punctual, warm, professional, and so fun to work with. He made us feel at ease and we barely even noticed him working away. He knows his environments and pays close attention to all the little details. Derek and his assistant Cathy (excuse my spelling if it's wrong) were so pleasant to work with that day, I wish we could do it all over again. Working with Derek, we didn't feel like just another client but we felt like friends! He worked hard to deliver our photo collection on our one month anniversary and we are beyond thrilled with his work.

Derek and his staff were amazing! I highly recommend Derek and his team if you are looking for someone who makes you feel at ease while still capturing amazing photos! His professionalism definitely didn't go unnoticed I love how he made sure everyone looked their best in the photo before capturing the photo. It is very rare to find a photographer who will make sure everyone looks good prior to taking the photo and for that I am very glad for Derek he gets all the small details you wouldn't think of and is so easy to work with. He was worth every penny and I hope to use him again for other events in the future. Thank you Derek for the amazing shots you did for our wedding! I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos!
