We had our prenup, engagement and wedding photos done by Derrick and he was wonderful. He's funny, quirky and still very professional. His creativity really shines when he's in his element.
We only had a short time to get the photos during our prenup shoot and despite it being out of the country, Derrick was able to anticipate the events and timing and told us in advance the plan, the route and even gave us suggestions on the mood and outfits. The photos turned out beautifully, he went above and beyond to get the perfect shots. (We were shocked that he was suddenly on the floor and on his back telling us to hold and smile for the camera!)
During our wedding he was on time and ready to go which saved us a lot of added worries and stress during that chaotic day. Our guests complemented on how great of a person he was. He was very patient with everyone when taking group shots even when people would not smile. He had good humor and was able to get the grumpiest person to smile in the photo - and get a group photo with everyone smiling (NOT AN EASY FEAT!)
We definitely can't stop watching the highlight videos and photos. The soundtrack for the photos were so inspired and beautiful we have added them to our playlist! We were really blessed to have had such a talented photographer who captured moments we didn't even know existed and missed until we looked through all our pictures. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Derrick for capturing and immortalizing our special day!

Best Wedding Gift
My husband and I consider Derrick as God's best wedding gift to us. He's the best, a master photographer indeed! His very humble and gentle character made me comfortable during the photoshoot. We admire his passion and dedication to his craft. Watching him do his job made me understand why photography is considered an art. Derrick is very artistic, creative, skillful, resourceful and passionate. I have never met a photographer as good and as hardworking as he is. Obviously, photography is Derrick's passion and talent. It's more than a job for him that's why his clients received more than what they paid for. My husband and I, including our family and friends, are so happy with the pictures. No more editing needed! They are perfect! We can't thank Derrick enough for this wonderful wedding gift. We treasure those pictures because they never fail to touch our hearts and put a smile on our lips. We love you Derrick!
Derrick is a great and gifted photographer. We love his services. He has an eye for beauty, very creative and resourceful. During our shoot, he's very professional and fun at the same time. We had wonderful, "raw" (no need to edit) memories captured by him. Thanks Derrick!
