Hi, I'm Dereck. I've been doing Photography and Videography since 2017. It wasn't until the pandemic of last year where I decided to take a leap of faith and make it a full time career. I feel like I've always had a burning passion for photography and editing, I love photography because it captures a moment in time. Whether that moment is your wedding day or an annual family portrait, pictures enable us to relive and remember special occasions again + again. Why I specifically dove into Wedding Photography? Simple!! My love for creativity and seeing passionate couples that aren't afraid to show their personalities.
When I am not taking pictures you can find me in the gym or at the beach doing CrossFit or catching up on my favorite TV shows or hanging out with my beautiful girlfriend.
Please check out my portfolio site and spend some time going through my other projects to get a better feel for how I capture a wedding or lifestyle session. And when you’re ready, feel free reach out to say hi and get more info from me about working together

Yes ! while most of my travel takes me between southern california + denver , i love new adventures and would be happy to join you in any city, state, or country to document your special day.
my gear includes professional-grade canon bodies, a variety of lenses + external lighting equipment.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE WILL WE NEED?
every wedding is unique in styling + timing, therefore the amount of coverage that you need may vary from someone else’s needs and that is why i offer three collections with different hourly coverage! having said that, my preferred amount of coverage and my most frequently booked collection includes 8 hours. eight hours gives me the perfect amount of time to thoroughly tell the story of your wedding day without feeling rushed, left with too much downtime, or missing important details/moments.
but if you think you need more or less time, let’s chat!
an engagement session is a great idea for so many reasons! not only does the session allow all three of us to bond and get to know each other in preparation for your wedding day, but it gives you guys a chance to warm up to me taking your pictures, which most couples have never done before. another perk of doing an engagement session is that i get to see how you two interact which gives me a better idea of how best to work with you on your wedding day. and lastly, engagement photos are a great way to document this special stage in your lives together!
so whether you’re into a formal sunset session downtown or a cozy, intimate shoot in your own home, i encourage every couple that i work with to consider participating in an engagement session.
all weddings + lifestyle sessions are delivered through an online gallery for easy viewing, sharing with friends + family, and downloading. lifestyle sessions take about 2 weeks to be processed and weddings can take up to 8 – 12 weeks. curious to see a full engagement session or wedding gallery? be sure to mention it in your initial inquiry and i’d be happy to share!
i love printed goods! i offer heirloom albums, prints + canvases all produced through a professional lab, which ensures the highest quality materials and accurate colors.
once you have secured a date + venue we can move forward with booking! to reserve your day with me i require a signed contract and retainer. shoot me a message to get started!
