Derrick did a fantastic job shooting our wedding! He is very intuitive, personable, and easy to be comfortable around. On our big day we got some unexpected rain and Derrick helped us make the best of it- bringing a clear umbrella for us and capturing some truly magical shots between raindrops. He has an incredible eye for detail and we love all of the candid shots he was able to get throughout the day. Derrick is also an amazing and prompt communicator, making the process leading up to wedding day seamless. We cannot recommend him enough! If you are looking for a gifted photographer (with top-notch people skills) for any special occasion, Derrick is the best of the best!

Derrick was great to work with from the initial request and throughout the project. This project was a remote photo shoot for college graduation photos and we (the parents) were remote. Derrick responded to questions immediately, was open to suggestions and very communicative along the way. Once the shoot was complete Derrick let us know what to expect and a few days later I was able to access the complete album online. The photos turned out great and the entire family is so happy we had this done! Looking forward to working with Derrick again next year when my daughter graduates!

Derrick was pleasant and very knowledgeable. He followed my niece's list of images. She was impressed all through the process with him. So happy he had this date open.

Derrick was excellent to work with from the booking process through delivery of the final product. We could not have asked for a better experience. As is the case with most weddings, wrangling family together for photos is crazy and even more so when there a ton of kids running around. Derrick was understanding and utilized these moments to capture great candid photos that we did not even know we wanted. We give our highest recommendation to use Derrick for your wedding.

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!

FAQs

  • 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.
