We were so happy with our choice of Derek for our wedding photographer. When we met he was able to provide us with a range of options to fit our vision as well as our limited time-frame and budget. We were able to communicate with him easily and he was always professional. On the big day, he offered just the right amount of direction. He suggested some great poses that turned out to be stunning, while still being flexible in accommodating the shots that we wanted. We got our photos back quickly, and they turned out great. The images are bright and the colours really pop. All the special little moments of the day were captured, and the expressions and emotions show up beautifully. The photo album is high quality and we find it to be a wonderful way to remember our special day.

When looking for a photographer, the most important thing to me was to find a photographer who truly captured the emotion of joy, laughter, and love. That is exactly what we got from Derek’s beautiful pictures! Derek is such a genuine person who absolutely adores his job, the fact that he gets excited about different shots and the lighting lets you know he is passionate and wants the best pictures possible for you! Derek will always ask for your input and if you aren’t sure on what style photos you want or aren’t sure about the location he has a lot of great ideas. He’ll also get to know your family and joke around to make you as comfortable as can be while maintaining the utmost professionalism. I was truly blown away when I saw our wedding pictures, they are absolutely perfect! One thing I forgot to mention is that he will work within any budget; Derek went above and beyond to add little extra details that I thought would be out of our price range for our wedding day, for example he was able to make a guest sign in book with photos from our engagement shoot! If you’re reading this review wondering if you should book with him, stop wondering, you won’t regret it! Derek Thank You so much for taking the time to make sure all the little details of our wedding day were captured.

Derek Bogdan, was recommended to me by someone I worked with. I am so pleased I asked Derek to be our photographer. He worked within our budget. He was fast at getting back to you and he worked within our schedual. He listened to what our vision was for our wedding day and captured the moments we asked for and special ones we didnt know about. He always listened carefully to what we wanted from him. On our wedding day he went above and beyond our expectations of him. Derek kept us on our timeline and knew exactly what we wanted. He captured every magical moment and ones of our families we may have missed, if it wasnt for him. He was very proffestional with, yet a sense of humor. He did a photobooth for us and everyone loved it and are still talking about, how much fun they had with it and how patient and fun and proffesional our photographer was with everyone, from children to seniors. He captured moments before and after our ceremony that we will have for a lifetime. If you have any doubts about having Derek capture your special day, put them aside and you will be beyond happy with him as your Photographer the pictures are amazing !!! Thank you Derek for everything, we now have memories that are captured in photographs, that we will have forever!

Fall family photo in park

We had Derek do a family photo shoot with 12 (hard to manage, opinionated and talkative) people for a Christmas gift for my parents. The photos came out beautifully and exactly as we expected – Derek was really patient and spent a lot of time trying to get the right shot. He listened to everyone’s input and was able to come up with something that met everyone’s expectations. After that session we decided (at the last second) to do a shoot just of my immediate family and he stayed an extra hour working with us. He brought us to a different location and we ended up with photos equally as impressive yet completely different than the large family photos (not just more of the same). Really easy to work with, great price/value, and highly recommended.
