The memories from our wedding day are moments my husband and I talk about all the time— to reminisce about our favorite day! And something magical happened when we received our film from Derek, all of those memories came to life. He perfectly...
captured the moments we talked about, and for that, we are so grateful. It was such a joy to have Derek film our wedding day, his artistry and genuineness made for such a comfortable & memorable experience. Not to mention, his professionalism and flexibility when we had to postpone our wedding to a later date. To anyone who is considering Derek Preciado Photography, book him already!! (and add on the LOVE sign option while you're at it... it's so cute and our guests loved it). Thank you, Derek! You are the best!

There are not enough words to describe how much we love Derek’s work! We hired him for wedding photography and videography, and rehearsal dinner photography. We are so happy with that decision. He was such a professional, and his skill for orga...
nizing large groups of people for photos is unmatched. How he got everyone to look good at the same time is pure magic.
All of our family and guests raved about him — he was everywhere, capturing everything we would want to remember. With his teammate Scott (the videographer), we had full coverage of our wedding day. They got there early for getting ready shots and created a quick bond with our wedding party.
I feel like he really captured us well as a couple.
He also did our engagement photos, which were amazing (of course!). We did two great locations with him and it was a great chance to get to know him before the big day.
As a side note: his wife Jade Preciado was our wedding planner for the day, and those two make an amazing pair. It made it even more of an easy decision to have him photograph our rehearsal dinner, and he felt like more than just our photographer because of their bond. If the two of them are both free on your wedding day, scoop them up!!

OMG if you are looking for a Wedding Videographer, look no further than DPfilms Productions out of Nipomo!!!!
I don't even where to start honestly. Derek was absolutely amazing. We originally chose him for our wedding for the quality and prox...
imity to our original venue, but he and his wife proved not only to be professional, but flexible and so caring and understanding! We went through literal hell in 2020. We had to change venues not once, not twice, but three times. Each time we moved further away from them, and each time, he assured me we would make it work!
In the middle of all of that, I lost my dad and grand-dad. I didn't know if I even wanted to hold the wedding after losing venue no. 2 and once again, Derek assured me they would be there - whatever we needed to do and was so
empathetic. I am so grateful to have been blessed by the universe by such an amazing team.
They are kind, professional, prompt, and INCREDIBLY talented! You wouldn't have even known they were at the wedding TBH, but the footage they captured is absolutely PHENOMENAL.
My favorite inclusions in the film:
My husband and I both ride motorcycles and Derek even drove an hour to include footage of us riding together and a separate interview portion to include in the main video. This was such a lovely touch and will serve to be such a wonderful memory.
They also made sure there was footage of my nephew carrying my father's urn down the aisle. As painful as this loss is, I'm so grateful we will at least have a memory of him being there even if it's just in spirit.
And don't even get me started on the footage of the kids dancing!!
We are seriously so insanely happy with everything. If we could afford to pay them 1 million dollars, we absolutely would. We missed so much during our wedding day and we are so happy we get to see everything we missed in this video!!
I'm sure you can find a videographer anywhere, but I honestly think you can't do better than Derek and his wife. They check all the boxes and more.
HIRE THEM ALREADY!!!! If you got this far in my review, it's not too late! You can still make the BEST decision of YOUR LIFE. My husband and I will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives. YOU WILL 100% NOT REGRET HIRING THEM.

e’re glad that we chose DP Filma to capture our wedding. They were flexible/affordable and our end result did not suffer because of it. Bottom line, I recommend DP to anyone that wants top notch people and results. I recommend that you opt for the package that includes the drone footage of your venue. Well worth the addition cost! Thank you guys!

ered, and you were always one step ahead. We sincerely appreciate your constant communication, endless energy, your discipline, consistency, professionalism, and easy going attitude!
Carmen was so impressed by your intuition. She remembers the pair of sandals you gave her when you noticed she was becoming tired of dancing on those heels! What a simple gesture and what a big difference that made. You can't teach that kind of attentiveness and kindness, and that makes you great at what you do.
Thank You Jade for facilitating our wedding! You continued to impress throughout the night, you seemed to be in all places, and the flow of our wedding became a sweet memory for our family, our friends, and us.
With kind regards,

he most memorable customer service experiences of our life!
The most memorable impression is that Derek took the time to drive my wife and I from one location to another in order to capture film we wanted in our wedding. We had been drinking during our reception and Derek was so nice to drive us around keeping us safe and ensuring we filmed exactly what we wanted to capture.
The day of our wedding was filmed just as we hoped and we must admit, it exceeded our expectations!. So many wonderful moments were captured at the right time, the right angles, and the drone footage was just amazing. Derek is definitely a professional and has a very high standard of customer service, as a customer I felt that he had our best interest in mind and he delivered as expected!
Thank you so much for ensuring one of the most important days of our life is forever captured allowing us to treasure and share those memories with our loved ones for years to come.

beautiful masterpiece that will be treasured for generations to come. He has a great eye for cinematography. He went far above and beyond filming the entire family during the evening and captured the mass in a way that family who weren't able to attend felt as if they were there. Derek's drone footage, videography and photography skills were top notch. His added drone footage was icing on the cake! For the final product, we were given a beautiful DVD that even included a menu with scene selections and a custom photo of my mom and I on the disc. We would highly recommend his services for any occasion! Outstanding work, Derek Preciado! My entire family extends their gratitude for your hard work from beginning to end.
