I'm a storyteller with a sense of humour. Relaxed, documentary style photography to complement your personality
I'm a journalistic photographer who is less about intricate posing and more about grabbing those natural interactions that unfold throughout the day. I'm there to capture your story, and I believe that the best photography comes from the moments that you create. You do you, and great photos will follow.
I like to tell the entire story, so my full coverage package isn't bound by hours but instead includes morning preparation through to your goodbyes. I always bring a second photographer, and we split up in order to capture every angle throughout the day. Not every wedding is created equal, so if full coverage isn't your thing get in touch and let me know your plans, we can work out a custom package that fits best.

Derek is the most professional photographer I've met but not the kind that is purely professional. He is very kind, very laid back and will make you feel extremely comfortable when planning and taking photos!
We can't thank Derek enough for everything he has done for us!
Thank you Tara for your kind feedback. It was a pleasure working with you both. Congratulations again!
Very skilled, pleasant photographer, we had fun during both the prewedding shoot and the actual wedding day shoot. We were recommended through a friend who came across his instagram profile and had "saved" him for her future wedding. We really like the natural look and the colours of his photos - it captures the fun and relaxed atmosphere at the time of the shoot very accurately. Derek and his assistant were pleasant and professional, would not hesitate to recommend to others.
We found Derek through Easy Weddings. My husband and I were so impressed by his work and thought he had the best portfolio that fit our style. When we first met, Derek immediately made us feel comfortable with his down-to-earth and chill personality. We were apprehensive about having our photos taken in such intimate positions because we were not used to them, but Derek put us at ease each time with his infectious excitement and enthusiasm. After our pre-wedding shoot, we felt like we were pros! Come our wedding day, we felt more relaxed and had complete trust in him. To say that our photos came out AMAZING is an understatement. We are beyond grateful for the time and effort he put in to have our wedding day forever preserved in such beautiful images. Derek is indeed a master of his craft.
