Me and my Fiancée went to one of the couples portrait experiences with Derek and we had a great time (apart from the fact it was basically sub zero temperatures). Even in this weather Derek made sure we enjoyed our time, and not only that the pictures came out amazing!! Thank you so much Derek. We would thoroughly recommend him to anyone!!

Derek is not only the most amazing photographer, he is such a lovely guy and he really understood what we wanted from our wedding photos. Myself and the entire wedding party felt completely relaxed with him around and we are so happy we chose him to capture the biggest day of our lives. I truly felt we booked him as a photographer and by the end of it all we made a friend too. Thank you again Del x

What Happens If It Rains On My Wedding Day?

What happens if it rains on your wedding day? I get wet, my cameras will be fine and my skin is waterproof.

In all seriousness. The weather is the weather, it can't be controlled but we can make plans. From your side, if the weather has a chance to impact the day, like an outdoor wedding, then have a backup plan. Either an indoor option or wellies and brollies.

For me, the weather isn't that big a deal. Sure I would like warm sunny days, but it is what it is. If it's sunny, it's sunny, and if it rains, then we might get wet.

My approach to wedding photography is documentary, unposed and unstaged. I don't rely on good weather to deliver what I do, the weather like everything else becomes part of your day. Embrace whatever happens and smile, just like Gemma (below).

He seemed to get as much enjoyment out of being part of the day as we did

“We have just seen some of the photos Derek took at our daughters wedding a couple of weeks ago. I am completely in awe of them, they are so beautiful and have truly captured their love for each other and the amazing day. Derek was fantastic on the day, you didn’t even realise he was taking photos. He seemed to get as much enjoyment out of being part of the day as we did. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Derek.”
