    A must hire

    This dude is worth every penny. Incredibly professional, reliable and respectful. He was very active and caught everything from the ceremony to the reception. Easily the most stress free part of the day for us. We hired his cousin Mike Relyea for the pictures and they worked together seamlessly. The prices are very reasonable, spend the money, it’s worth it.

    Derrek was a lifesaver on our wedding day!

    My husband and I can not say enough AMAZING things about Derrek Matichak Videography. We were married on March 8th, 2019. We had initially booked another videography company for our big day. Two hours after the original videographer was supposed to be there, they cancelled! I was pretty upset at the idea of not having a videographer to record our ceremony. While all this was happening, our awesome DJ (JPW Productions) reached out to Derrek to see if he was free and could make it to our venue in Elgin for the ceremony. He made the drive and made it 15 MINUTES BEFORE IT STARTED. He managed to get everything all set up in time for the ceremony!

    After the ceremony was completed, we spoke to him for a few minutes to express our gratitude for coming. He was very professional, polite, and fun! As the night went on, our guests kept complimenting him and his fun personality. He was on the dance floor with our guests ALL reception! It was great. After the wedding was completed, we paid him for his services the next day. He was very prompt in responding to all questions. You can definitely see he is passionate about his work!

    We recently received our sneak peek video from Derrek. It was absolutely beautiful and we can’t wait to see the final product. I wish that we would have initially booked with him! I’m so glad that he ended up being our videographer.

    HIRE DERREK AS YOUR VIDEOGRAPHER! You won’t regret it!

    Great Experience!

    Derrek was great! Danced on the floor while videotaping which everyone loved. Was not shy to make sure he got every detail I wanted for our video. Definitely flexible, I would recommend!!

    Great experience!

    While we do not have our video back yet, I feel comfortable saying that we would totally recommend Derrek! He was professional to work with and caught every moment we wanted him to catch! He was reasonably priced and his service is top of the line. His hours basically cover the entire day which I could hardly believe. He was with us for 12 hours!!! His communication is also great. Would recommend for sure!

    Derrek was extremely accommodating and excited to work with us from the start. He had never been to our venue prior (The Herrington in Geneva), but he was more than willing to make the trip for our big day. Derrek made sure to get as much footage as possible, from using his drone for aerial shots of our outdoor ceremony and photo session, to busting a move out on the dance floor for almost the entire night with the rest of our guests. His enthusiasm about his work and being able to contribute to our special day made it a pleasure to work with Derrek throughout the entire wedding process. His pricing was very fair as well. Highly recommend!

    Derrek is incredible! He recently worked my wedding and we just received a "trailer" of our day. It's stunning and left everyone that watches it with tears in their eyes. Derrek is easy to communicate with and professional. We have already given his name to a few of our friends that are newly engaged. Derrek's company also provided drone coverage of our church and venue - it's stunning. I highly recommend him for your wedding!

    Loved Derrek & his assistant for the day! They did all that we asked them to do and then some. And we even booked Derrek just two weeks before our wedding. Absoultely a great value and very professional! Worth every penny to have those memories preserved forever!

    We could not be happier with the work that Derrek Matichak did for us. We truly feel like our whole day was captured and we continue to watch our video again and again. It has been so wonderful to re-live that day. Derrek was wonderful to work with, very easy to reach, and clearly worked very hard on something we will cherish forever. His passion for videography combined with the personal touches added made him a wedding vendor we would recommend to anyone. Thank you again Derrek!

    From start to finish, he is amazing! When we first met him, we knew he was the one. He was able to give us detailed package info, brought his laptop so he could show us recent weddings he did, and directed us to his website and youtube channel to watch more. He is courteous, kind, and VERY detail oriented (which as a bride I LOVED). He said we could get as many DVD's as we wanted, make DVD covers with our picture on it, and edited our video and had it completed less than 2 month from our wedding. You can tell he truly cares about his customers. His prices are cheap for the quality and care you receive from him. I will forever recommend him to anyone who is seeking a videographer.

    We are so happy to have chosen Derrek to record our wedding day. He was professional and organized right from the start. We were so impressed with how he managed to be everywhere at once. Derrek never made us feel as though the camera was constantly following us, and yet, caught everything from our first kiss, to the last dance, and everything in between. The DVD's were arranged beautifully with our choice of music. Derrek has a true passion for what he does, and genuinely captured all of our memories perfectly. Thank you so much Derrek, we loved every minute of it and are so happy to have these memories to watch for a lifetime!

    Derrek did an amazing job capturing our wedding day, we could not be happier with our wedding videos! Derrek is very passionate about what he does, and it shows in the quality of his work. We felt at ease with him and were very pleased with his attention to detail and professionalism. We just wanted to thank you again for being right there to capture all the wonderful moments of our wedding day-especially Luke's "American Idol" moments!! It's wonderful to see the things we missed from the day and enjoy all the good times over again! We will enjoy watching our videos for years to come. I have worked in the wedding industry for years, and have seen a lot of the work done by his competitors, Derrek is one of the best out there!! The quality of his work, professionalism, and value cannot be beat!

    Derrek was the videographer for our wedding on 7/16/11. The quality of service was outstanding. My wife and I could not have asked for a better way to remember our wedding day. Everytime we go back and watch the video we comment on how great Derrek did. He was very easy to get a hold of and was in constant communication with us before the wedding. We meet severl times before the wedding in person as well. He was very will ing to work with our busy schedules. Even after the wedding while he was editing the video he was constantly in contact asking us what we wanted included or excluded. Derrek and his associates were very professional at the wedding. For the value you can not go wrong with Derrek. He is a wonderful person and an outstanding videographer. If you want a great way to remember your wedding day and a video that will capture every special moment hire Derrek.

    Thank you so much

    Troy and Mary

    My wife and I could not have been happier with the professionalism, service, quality, price, and passion that Derrek Matichak Videography provided us on our wedding. Originally, we didn't know if we were going to videotape our wedding, due to multide of expenses that are tight budget was enduring. However, this was by far the best bang for our buck we received. The video highlight that Derrek puts together moved us and everyone that has watched it. The quality was superb, and he captures each and every moment and replays them to you that still brings my wife and I to tears. Before and after the wedding Derrek worked with us to make sure that every moment and detail was captured as we wanted it. He captured our fairy tale, so that we can relive it as often as we'd like. We couldn't be happier.
