It’s amazing what we had forgotten about until we saw the photos, and now the day comes flooding back to us..

Alternative wedding + portrait photographer based in Essex

Hi, I'm Derek Anson (del/delboy/delberts) and I'm an alternative wedding + portrait photographer based in East London/Essex, Dagenham to be precise. I love taking and creating images of spontaneous authentic moments.

My photography is very much in a documentary/candid style, whether it's a family shoot or a wedding there is not much (hardly any) posing involved. While I take inspiration from street photographers and I truly believe in a hands-off approach I also have great people skills and love to interact with my couples and families.

When shooting portraits I use a variety of fun games and memory exploring suggestions. These are designed to relax and clear away some of life's cloudiness, which helps create a memorable portrait experience.

Portrait sessions, including wedding day portraits, consist of giggles... tons of laughter and lots of cuddles, they are an absolute blast. The hugs, smiles, laughter and maybe the odd tear will be real, the story behind your images will be unique, just like you.
