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 thanks to a consummate professional and artist.
We met Derek at a friend's wedding he was shooting. Our wedding was on Block Island in Rhode Island and Derek captured so many great moments of our wedding and the island. A lot of the shots look they belong in a magazine. He went above and beyond to get capture every special moment of our wedding day.
Derek took the most informal and fun pictures of my wedding, and he transformed a small 30 people ceremony in a boat into an exciting gathering of close friends. He pulled us at a gorgeous moment to register my husband and I as the passed by the Statue of Liberty, and the images speak for themselves. He is polite, low maintenance, and has a keen eye for a great shot.
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 creating an artful, beautiful album of our wedding that we treasure! We couldn't be happier.
From the moment our wedding began we knew that we would have wonderful photographs to enjoy and share with family and friends. Derek was creative in his candid pictures and was never intrusive in anyone's space. A complete gentleman and made everyone feel relaxed when taking group photos. He caught some shots that we would have never seen. A complete positive experience!
Derek is laid back, easy to work with and does beautiful work. We are so amazed with our pictures and how they captured the day - so were all our guests. Everyone at our party was impressed with the way he moved through the day. He captured the most important moments to us and listened to what was important to us. We highly recommend Derek, you won't be disappointed!
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 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 is a fabulous photographer and a wonderful person! Couldn't be happier with the results. His easy-going personality fit in seamlessly with the festivities. His informal pics really captured the feeling of the day and his formal pics are beautiful. He even made use of his yoga skills to position himself with the perfect angle for our all-over group photo. Loved the whole thing! Thanks again, Derek!
We loved having Derek as our wedding photographer. He was so professional and I liked that we didn't spend a lot of time posing for photos but we got so many amazing pictures of our celebration. He worked with our budget to provide us with amazing photos that we will cherish forever. We are so happy with his work and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. We knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding the moment we met him.
Review for Derek Goodwin PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 Shannon K
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. He worked with us on some discounts, which was great!;Though his photos are amazing, he is not great with the business end of things. Everything that we ordered took far longer than expected. He arrived at the wedding a little later than expected. We lived quite a ways from him and got married even further away, which may have had some impact on these things.
