Derek was amazing to work with and we love our photos. He and his team are very prompt in their replies, especially since we planned our wedding from afar. On our wedding day, Derek and Kathy were nothing but professional, and we barely noticed they were there as they are focused on ensuring they capture all the best images in the most unobtrusive way. I would recommend Derek to anyone getting married in Hawaii.

We hired Derek to do our engagement shoot and wedding photos; best wedding decision we made! He's very easy going, fun and will even try to help you with your wedding planning (i.e. recommending vendors, timeline, etc). He captures glamorous, candid and natural shots; something not many photographers can't do. We highly recommend Derek, you won't regret it!!

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.
