Great Photos. Derek did an amazing job with the photos from our wedding at Belmont Mansion. Our affair was a very small "elopement type ceremony"; however, he made us feel like "rock stars" by the end of our event. The pictures are absolutely amazing, affordable, and high quality. I would recommend Derek's services for any size, type, or occasion in which you are looking for a fabulous photographer.
Wedding @ Cedarwood.
When planning our wedding I wanted good pictures after all the mind can only remember so many things, but a picture can tell you a story and bring you right back into the moment. Derek did that for me when I viewed my photos today for the first time. My pictures exceed my expectations they are GREAT! I can not say enough good things about Derek but I will give it a whirl: professional, resonable, on time, creative, fun, open minded, flexible.

He Gets The Job Done.
Derek was the right kind of photographer for my wife and I because we set up our times to shoot during our engagement, and he made it happen. He was willing to listen to our ideas, and then he incorporated those ideas using all of his experience as to what works and does not work.
On our wedding day, he was there early and everything went as planned. We never wondered where Derek was and yet he never bothered us during our reception by asking us to do this and that.
We very much enjoyed the end-product and would recommend Derek to any who are looking for a no-nonsense professional photographer who is drama-free.
Professional, High-Quality, Affordable Wedding Photography.
Derek worked with us through the entire process to make sure that our engagement/wedding photos were as wonderful as they could possibly be. We live in Chicago and got married in Nashville. Derek made a point to always be available for us to ask questions, plan for the day of the wedding, and even made special arrangements for our engagement photo shoot.
My husband and I were consistently impressed with his positive attitude, professionalism, and the quality of his work. I would recommend him to any of my friends planning on getting married in Nashville. A+
Wedding Photographer. Most people want a wedding photographer to know what they are doing but also not be set in their ways. Derek is that guy. He's been in the business long enough where you really don't need to tell him anything and you will still get phenomenal wedding photos. He knows what pictures to take and how to manage time whether it be a few hours or a few minutes. On the other hand, if there is something that you want; a certain pose, background, group of people, he will change his "norm" to accommodate his client. Prior to your wedding day, he will also give you a lot of "food for thought" on what you can do yourself to improve your photos throughout your day. Something that someone who has seen it all can do.
Amazing Wedding Photographer!. Derek was our photographer for our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures and I would highly recommend him to anyone! My husband and I both freeze in front of cameras but Derek helped us to feel comfortable and relaxed, and thus was able to capture some amazing and very special moments. Throughout the process, he was very personable, yet professional and a breeze to work with. His expertise and familiarity with wedding photography allowed our wedding day to flow smoothly and without a hitch. We received our proofs via DVD very soon after the wedding and were truly impressed with the quality of his work. Derek takes amazing pictures and we are thrilled with all of ours- and there are tons to choose from!
Derek was great to work with!!. I am a wedding coordinator/planner and I enjoyed working with Derek on a wedding we had together this past September. He was very busy when I first called him, but told me what I needed to know and then I felt pretty confident knowing he had the timeline for the day and photography start time all set. He was very efficient with pictures and got some great shots of my bride and groom. He does amazing work for a great price because he loves what he does!! I would highly recommend Derek for any bride that wants a great photographer for engagement or the wedding day shots. He really has a talent for what he does!
Let me just say Thank You Derek! Derek did an absolutely wonderful job. He is a great photographer and easy to work with. He and his assistant showed up early and started shooting... I had not even realized they had arrived. They did a fantastic job catching all the moments of the day. The pictures are beautiful.
I spent months looking for a photographer; honestly, it was really my own concern as I had two mothers planning the rest of our wedding. I was devastated to realize that all of the photographers I liked would have cost $10,000+ for what I was looking for. The moment I walked into Derek's Studio, I knew I was going to book him. There was nothing left to consider. His work is right up there "the Best of the Best" with those photographers who are looking to brake the bank, but he he really has AFFORDABLE prices. Not to mention, he is so great to work with!
In my opinion, anyone would be crazy not to book him. He gives you exactly what you want for a fraction of the cost! I could not of asked for anything more!
Thank You so much!!!
I also wanted to mention that I photographed her fathers 2nd marriage too!
An incredible photographer/beautiful wedding photography. I just wanted to say that the pictures taken of our daughter's September wedding were the most beautiful of any I have seen anywhere. Now I know I am prejudiced with the pictures being of my child, but I took time before we contacted Derek to look at a lot of pictures on a lot of websites and his are as good as it gets. The photographs have given us incredible memories of their special day. Not only were the pictures well done but he was so kind and easy to work with. His professionalism sets the standard for the industry.
