Hello there!  

As a child, photography was never something I dreamed of doing as a career, I actually wanted to fly airplanes but soon found out that since I was color blind (Yes it's true... I'm a color blind photographer) that would never happen for me professionally. Moving on from that dream I graduated from CSU Fresno with a degree in Civil Engineering which seemed far from "artistic", but somewhere along the way I picked up my first camera. I was hooked. 

There’s not a moment that goes by that makes me think I should be doing something else with my life. I love the personal connection to people this path has brought me and the endless memories that I'm able to provide through my work. This is me. This is what I do. I’m a wedding photographer. I’m proud of it, I cherish it, and I respect it.

That's a little about me... now tell me your story!

I'm Derek.

Full of curiosity and love, every day gives a new meaning of what it is to be human. 

Where I feel most 
at peace.

It's so delicious.

Never stop exploring.

Capturing adventures.

Women collect shoes, 
I collect hats... 
lots of them!

It keeps things green.

Taking me places most people can't go.

My wife & best friend, adventure partner, and my happy place... plus she's smokin' HOT!
