I feel so fortunate that Derek photographed my wedding. Not only did he take wonderful pictures, but when I reached out to him last week to see if he still had the negatives over a decade later, to my amazement he still did and very generously shipped them to me that day! Many... Read More thanks to a consummate professional and artist.

Thanks so much for the review. I had so much fun on the boat wedding, I won't ever forget it! The Statue of Liberty was a fun pic, and the live band was really great. Hope you have many many years of happiness together!

Derek captured our wedding moments beautifully. The blend of posed shots and candid moments made for an album that truly reflected the love and beauty of the day. He is a true artist and a kind, genuine person. I could not imagine hiring anyone else.

Derek has a wonderful eye for beautiful moments and amazed me in how he was able to capture them with the stealth of a ninja. Besides his skill with candids, he was very creative in setting up shots that were unique. I happen to be allergic to cliché, and Derek had no trouble...

Thanks Marisa! Being an unobtrusive gentleman is one of the qualities I am very aware of at every wedding, no one wants a photographer interrupting their enjoyment of an event. The photos I capture while no one is aware I am there are always the... Read Less Read More

We're very happy that we chose Derek as our wedding photographer. His low-key, unobtrusive style was perfect for our casual wedding. As the years have passed from my wedding, what I've come to treasure from my photos are the shots of my family and friends, some of whom are... Read More sadly no longer with us. While we love the posed shots of course, his candid shots really demonstrated Derek's photographic chops. To be honest, many reception shots I've seen from other wedding photographers are often afterthoughts, or generic blurry dance floor photos. His pics from our reception really captured the spirit of the evening, from the emotions on everyone's faces to the festivities on the dance floor. He also took our request to get shots of every single guest to the next level, with some gorgeous candid shots that have been gracing their profile pics for the last 3 years. Derek was super easy to work with: everything on time and expertly communicated. Highly recommended!

Derek’s photos are imaginative and magical. He was able to catch beautiful moments that we did not see ourselves. And he does this with out making his own presence obvious - a master of photograohic ninjaery!

Derek takes amazing pictures. His style is primarily photojournalistic, though he will do some posed shots. We loved the photos and the albums and prints came out beautifully.
