    His down to earth nature and making the whole shoot comfortable, his professionalism, and the quality of his work was second to none , I am very pleased to him as my personal photographer for family photos and as well as my business photographer for my counseling practice. I highly recommend him and I'm for sure you will be pleased with his work.

    I’ve worked with Derek for a few years now and I’ve been pleased with every shoot we’ve. He finds a way to show you in the best light and you get your photos back in a timely manner as well. All around, a good guy with an eye.
