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
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.”
I don't have any traditions or formalities when it comes to photography, especially wedding photography. As for formal group shots on the wedding day, I only arrange those which are requested. Before the day, I contact my couples and ask them to think about what group shots they really want, if I'm going to start directing and moving people around, and more importantly keeping people from the bar! Then I want to make sure it's something my couples are actually interested in and want.
