more like a friend than a photographer

“What a fantastic photographer, we are so happy with our wedding photos. Derek captured so many special moments for us. We would recommend him highly. He was more like a friend than a photographer.”






the most beautiful, natural, candid, funny photos

“Del captured the most beautiful, natural, candid, funny photos & more. Del was fantastic not only for his photography but for just being himself & fitting into our wedding like one of our own.”



candid, natural & emotive

I'm a professional photographer of beautiful loving families and fantastic wedding days.

I’ve had the pleasure of documenting the weird, the wonderful, and the beautiful at weddings of all shapes and sizes since 2010.
