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. 

Take a peek at my gallery below or view my website and Instagram (@derekbogart) for the latest.  If you'd like to chat more I'd love to hear from you!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do you include a Pre-Wedding shoot and how does it work?

Yes! All of my packages include a pre-wedding shoot within Sydney, which is simply a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding and take some awesome photos along the way!

Pre-wedding photoshoots are approx. 1-2 hours long, and I highly recommend starting at a location that has significance for you and your partner. I'm always happy to brainstorm ideas and make suggestions. 

With my full coverage package, pre-wedding images are included in both print and web resolution on USB at no extra cost. For 8-hour packages you'll receive low resolution images as standard, with print resolution images as an optional purchase.

Can you provide a second photographer?

I always include a second photographer/assistant for up to 8 hours, regardless of the package. Why? Because it's always a good idea to have a second set of eyes and an extra camera on the day. 

With a second photographer we're able to split up during morning prep so you have both Bride and Groom preparations covered. During the ceremony we cover extra angles throughout the moments that matter.

How many images are included, and are they fully edited?

Photographing on the day is only a fraction of the work. Afterwards I personally edit all of your photos (including my assistant's), before final delivery. This includes colour correction, retouching and creative editing. I provide a mix of colour and black & white images on the final USB. 

For full coverage packages (10+ hours) you can expect a minimum of 1000 photos from the day. 

How long until we receive our photos?

My standard timeframe for photo delivery is 60 Days after your wedding date. Upon delivery you'll receive a USB drive with print and web resolution images, along with a collection of archival 6" x 4" prints from the day.

Don't fret though, you won't have to wait 60 days to receive a sneak peek. I always provide an online preview gallery with a selection of images from the day within 2 weeks of your wedding. 

Do you provide Wedding Albums?

Yes! I'm a huge advocate of print photography from my days in the darkroom, and I personally design wedding albums which are handmade in the USA. I offer a range of styles and sizes, including Parent and Gift albums, with customizable designs and cover materials. If you're interested in an album let me know and I can provide samples and a pricelist upon request!

Derek was fantastic, so relaxed and put us completely at ease, plus his photos are beautiful. I would highly recommend!

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!

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.

I absolutely loved Derek's photography before my husband and I even met with him. The other half thought that you needed one of these cheesy mega production companies to do your wedding photos and the thought of that made me cringe. We have seen a sneak peek of our wedding photos and I am so happy that this was the one thing I refused to compromise on. Derek was so enthusiastic and I enjoyed getting to chat to him in our pre wedding shoot. Photos are your memories of your day...you are in good hands with Derek.

Derek was the perfect photographer for us. He was so calm and personable, while staying professional, he made us feel at ease straightaway. Derek was very receptive to our ideas and replied to us quickly. Our engagement shoot with Derek helped us prepare for our wedding day, and our photos look amazing! Derek managed to get laughs out of everyone and captured the happiness and joy of our wedding day. We are very happy we found Derek and would highly recommend him!

Derek is such an amazing photographer. We found him through Google and just fell in love with his style of photography. Both our engagement and wedding photo shoots were so much fun. Very happy we had Derek to capture these special moments. We ended up with 2000+ incredible photos!

Thank you Kat for your lovely feedback. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Best of wishes to you both!

Derek was a wonderful photographer to have for our wedding. He took the most beautiful candid photos that really caught the special moments. We didn't even know that he and his assistant photographer were there! They just blended into the background and delivered a beautiful range of photos. From our package we received over 1,000 photos which was excellent value. We would highly recommend Derek to anyone looking for a wedding or special event photographer.

Derek is the best photographer I have ever worked with. He goes to so much trouble to make wedding photos look modern and fabulous! I couldn't have chosen a guy better for the job! :)

Derek captures those rare moments, that speak more than a thousand words. He has this talent to simply melts in. His photos blew my mind. Hearts filled with love & gratitude. Art that lets you time travel as soon as you see it... There are no words - THANK YOU!
