Hi! I’m Derek Anson, and I’m a documentary wedding photographer in the Essex town of Billericay, and I'm available to shoot weddings all over the UK.
I live in a cosy house with with my amazing wife and our two fantastic boys, two lazy cats, and one goldfish. We are out and about as much as possible, and I like nothing more than spending time with our sons. I'm pretty good with LEGO, and I'm a mean shot with a NERF gun.
My favourite things in the world are time with the family and enthusiastically cheering my footballing boys on. When I’m not shooting weddings, you’ll find me doing my best to avoid the decorating to-do list and finding a reason to get out on my bike.
My couples are close to their family and friends, love a proper celebration, and want their wedding to be all about having a great time. You don’t care about formalities or worrying about the little things that don’t matter – you just want to have a fantastic time with your favourite people. You value photography but don't want to turn your wedding day into a photo shoot, and the last thing you want is a photographer who takes over your day.
I’ve been a wedding photographer since 2010, and I absolutely love it. There are lots of good things about being a photographer, but what's most important to me is creating something that will touch lives and be cherished for years to come.
My wedding photography style is a bit of a mixture but mostly relaxed and natural. Sometimes I'm in your face, and sometimes I'm discreet and Ninja-like. I capture the connections, the fleeting moments, big bear hugs, the laughs, crazy dad dancing, and the odd tear and let you get on with having a brilliant day.
