About

Welcome, my name is Derek. I'm a fine art wedding photographer and cinematographer based in San Luis Obispo. My style is very poised and candid. I love to observe my subjects to capture them in a natural, honest and uncontrived way. I'm all about natural light and finding angles that create exquisite compositions. While my photography style is polished, minimalistic and soft, you'll find me to be fairly bold, & spontaneous.


While I strive to create art as well as heirlooms, I also rely heavily on the natural emotion, actions and reactions present on the wedding day as a key factor in telling your wedding day story. While I provide gentle posing guidance where necessary, my approach is to capture the wedding as unobtrusively, as naturally and as romantically as possible. If that sounds good to you, let's chat about your beautiful wedding!

    Fantastic work!

    Derek is absolutely amazing! I last minute decided I wanted a videographer at my wedding 1 week before I got married (I know!). My husband and I are SO incredibly lucky Derek had availability. Derek was responsive, professional, quick to take on our last minute booking, and most importantly made sure every detail of our wedding was captured the way we wanted it. I highly recommend Derek to any bride and groom looking for a videographer - he鈥檚 the best!
