My name is Derek Escobedo and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Anaheim, California.

I purchased my first camera in 2013 as a way for my wife, Brenda, and I to document our trips. Photos of California coastlines, New York skylines and Tokyo alleyways quickly transitioned into a love and appreciation for portrait photography, simple details and creating everlasting memories for others. 

Since 2018, I've had the pleasure of professionally photographing weddings, special events and portraits for my clients and with other established photography studios throughout Southern California.  When I'm not shooting a wedding, I'm typically being a foodie with my wife, creating music with my band, My Machete, or developing new ideas for my next photo session.


Through photography, I would like to capture your biggest moments – from the first look and the vow exchange, to your family's first portraits. I look forward to meeting you.


My mission is to deliver clean, modern and creative images – all while having fun and providing exceptional customer services.


My photography style is a unique blend of natural light photography and off-camera flash photography (OCF). Although I enjoy helping folks pose, I like to let the day play out naturally and photograph from afar. This allows me to capture more candid moments without disturbing the flow of the day.
