If I had one sentence to describe Fete, I wouldn't be able to do it. They deserve much more. What did I like? Everything. These two are awesome and truly are amazing at capturing the moment. I was floored looking at our photos of our engagement and wedding. They allowed us to be in our environment and captured those "wow" moments and then would offer a suggestion for other shots that were breathtaking. Sept 2015 wedding.

Absolutely Stunning Work

Derek from Fete Photography did an amazing job at capturing our wedding photos. We were in awe when browsing through our gallery and couldn't have picked anyone better. He was very nice and professional. We highly recommend Fete Photography!

Amazing! Great! Wonderful!

Fete Photography is amazing!! Kristi and Derek are great at capturing both posed portraits but also great at capturing important moments of the day that happen on the fly - it's hard to find a photographer that can do a great job at both, and Kristi and Derek did an amazing job, plus they gave us a really good variety of shots and angles. For example, our first kiss at the altar at the end of the ceremony was such a quick moment, but somehow they captured many beautiful different types of shots of this important quick moment! I don't know how they did it - we were impressed! During the planning process, they responded to all our e-mails quickly, and on the wedding day itself, they were fantastic to work with! They made sure that we got pictures with all the family members we wanted to get pictures with. I had a very large dress and Kristi held the train of my dress as we moved to different locations to take bride & groom pictures after the ceremony - her mindfulness of my delicate dress was very helpful and meant a lot!! And the pictures turned out beautiful! They also did a really good job with any editing/color correction they did on the pictures - Derek and Kristi definitely have a good artistic eye and perfectly captured our day. We have so many favorite pictures that it is hard to pick ones to put in an album! My husband and I highly recommend Fete Photography!
