Wedding and Event Photography

Derrick was great to work with! He was very responsive and quick at getting back to me. He was flexible with my needs and always agreed to my asks. He showed up early and had a great attitude even though we were outside in scorching heat! He had a digital download of my photos ready just a few days after my wedding!

Derrick did a great job working with our group of graduates. Myself and another parent surprised our daughters with a graduation photo shoot with all of their roommates . Derrick did a fantastic job working with me to organize it all and figure out details but he also did a fantastic on the day of the photo shoot with all of the roommates/graduates. They had a lot of fun with him and the pictures are AMAZING! It’s a memory you can only capture once!

We contacted Derrick last minute. They were responsive, flexible and were kind enough to agree to be part of our micro wedding and help capture our special day. We are so happy with how the pictures came out. Derrick did an amazing work and we hope to have them cover our bigger celebration in 2022. Thank you so much.

I had an amazing experience working with Derrick! He was very flexible, personable, and so easy to work with. Derrick created such a comfortable and authentic environment it was easy to forget we were even doing a photoshoot, it was so natural! He worked with me to understand my vision for our session while bringing his own unique style and incredible photography expertise to deliver pictures that were better than I could have ever imagined. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I keep it simple. I don't want this to be complicated, or stressful.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a major in Science Communication from the University of Wisconsin Madison, and a minor in photography! I got to work with incredible professors in school who are renowned award winning photographers.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started by taking photos of the marching band my first year in college. I then had people who saw my images from band, and asked for business portraits. Later I did my first wedding for a close friend who asked me if that was something I was interested in. I had a lot of fun and they really loved the results. It has turned into something that I am really dedicated to.
