Derek and Kristi were absolutely phenomenal on the day of our wedding. They made my husband and I feel at ease despite the chaos of the day. The photos they captured were amazing and truly photojournalistic. They were very accommodating and prompt with communication. This husband and wife team exceeded our expectations; I would highly recommend this duo to anyone.
Derek and Kristi are both fantastic photographers--they captured every moment of the day beautifully. Their style is unique and stunning; the colors in all of the photos look so rich and exquisite. They were such a quiet presence throughout the whole day/evening. They had never been to our venue before, but they were quick to get a feel for the space. You will not be disappointed! We received our online gallery about 5 weeks following the wedding. Highly recommend!
Joe and I both knew that we wanted a documentary-style photographer for our wedding. After looking through dozens of online portfolios of photographers in Charlotte and Asheville, which quite frankly, bored me, I was thrilled to wander onto the Fete site. I very specifically remembered the powerful emotional reaction that I had as I went through their blog and galleries. There was so much love! And not the cookie cutter love shots, but beautiful, sneaky, quiet love shots from all corners of the wedding day. I’m naturally a happy crier, and I absolutely dropped some tears by looking at other people’s photos….so I could only imagine what they could do with my own day. I have to admit, I was happily shocked that I could even afford them. I assumed that such beautiful artwork was out of our budget. Hallelujah , that was not the case. So, wedding day – they were quiet magicians. Apparently everywhere all the time. They were sweet and provided just enough direction to make sure they got the photos they knew we wanted, but then just …..captured. The online photo gallery was ready weeks sooner than we expected. And every album was more exciting than the previous. We just sat down, let the slide show run, and cried sentimental tears as we relived our beautiful day all over again. The photos are just stunning and they managed to help every single person glow in every photo. I can’t recommend them enough :)

Derek and Kristi are amazing photographers! They were friendly, laid-back, and easy to work with. We couldn't be happier with our photos! Every single photo is stunning. My husband and I are very happy that we chose Fete Photography to capture our special day and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I cannot say enough good things about Fete photography. My husband and I got married at The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC (we are from Chicago). We met with Derek and Kristi a couple of months before our wedding and they could not have been better listeners to exactly what we envisioned for our special day. We had them shoot both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. It is hard to describe how amazing the pictures have come out...so please take a look! http://fetephotography.com/blog/ Jessica and Jon
Talented, Fun and Professional - Highly Recommend!!Reviewed on 9/26/2014 Jessica
Fete, by far, was the highlight vendor of our wedding! We planned our Savannah wedding from our home in Texas, which means we had to do a lot of research remotely and had limited opportunity to meet with vendors in person. From the moment we met Fete though, we knew they were the perfect fit for our wedding photography. Derek and Kristi were such a fun pair to work with and completely put us at ease when taking photos. Throughout the months leading up to our wedding, they asked follow up questions and scouted out photo locations to make sure we had everything we wanted from our wedding photos. They were also very accommodating when it came to setting up and working out a photography package that fit our needs. On the day of, we received many compliments from our guests commenting on how friendly and professional Derek and Kristi were. My (now) husband and I are both creatives, and having talented, creative and high quality photography for our wedding was very important to us. I have to say, the photos Fete captured were incredible. Great composition and lighting, and a creative eye. I feel like they really did capture "us" and all the events of the day. I would highly recommend Fete for anyone needing a photographer in the Asheville (and Savannah) area. We could not be more happy with our photos and with our choice of photographers! I only wish we didn't live so far apart because after talking and working with Derek & Kristi, my husband and I really just want to be their friends! Such a sweet, friendly and talented couple! :)
