Hands Down Most Dedicated Photographer
Derek and his team were so great, I can't express how happy I am that I hired them to shoot our wedding. Not only was he professional, he took every moment very serious. And I greatly appreciated it, down to every little detail. I can now go through the photos and relive every moment of our special day. Truly the best.Sent on 07/19/2019

Derek exceeded all our expectations. Not only is he very professional and qualified, but he has an ease about him that makes you feel so comfortable. This is captured in all the photos. Very high quality, absolutely stunning. Derek captured the atmosphere and emotion of the day perfectly. Would highly recommend.Sent on 02/08/2019

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.Sent on 04/17/2018
Derek is not only talented in photography, but he is also wonderful at responding to your questions and concerns almost immediately! Its amazing how fast he response back to you, and he is such a nice person too! We always say that Derek is like a Ninja on your wedding day. You almost feel like he isn't there taking your photos lol. He produces beautiful photos without that awkward "in your face" feeling, making every experience comfortable.
Derek is an amazingly talented photographer! He has a unique style and always manages to capture the most special moments of a couple's wedding day. His easy-going nature, positive attitude and professionalism make him really great to work with, and we look forward to more opportunities to work with him in the future!
