"Derek was a last minute booking. We had a photographer and videographer already lined up through our venue vendor, but we had decided to book our own at the last minute. Not expecting the extra expense and stress of having to find somebody with little time, I cannot say how happy we were to come across Derek. From the original conversation, in between conversation, pre-shoot, and day of the event, he wow'd us! He is so professional but fun at the same time. By the end of the night, Derek felt like family! He took his time and always made sure we got the shots we wanted...Thank you again Derek!" - Jacleen
"Derek is a wonderful photographer! He's done several family sessions for our family and each session has included our extended family that happened to be in town the same day we took our photos. He is accommodating and works extremely well with kids (I have three of them). He's also done amazing work for my work place events! Captured moments I didn't think to capture myself, if I were the photographer. He has an eye and knack for perfection." - Danvi
"Derek photographed our daughter’s first birthday celebration and he was AMAZING! So professional, thoughtful and super talented! The photos turned out beautifully! I’m so glad we hired Derek and we will definitely be hiring him again!" - Kim
"My husband and I love working with Derek. Besides being an amazing photographer he makes you feel comfortable, which is a plus for camera shy people. We love how our maternity pictures came out and we can't wait to work with him again once our little one is here!" - Millie
"Very professional and very thoughtful in his approach to capturing great shots! Sometimes, standing in front of the camera can be daunting but Derek was great with directing us so we didn’t have to worry about our poses and positions. You can tell he puts a lot of pride in his work and it truly shows in the results! Will DEFINITELY be working with him again! Great affordable prices, too if I may add!" - Jessica
