Derk's Works Testimonials
Anthony & Francesca
We viewed the Derk's Works blog before we booked Benjamin, so we knew he did good stuff, but he really exceeded our expectations! It's clear that he has a passion for what he does by looking at his transcendent work. I'm pretty sure he smiled throughout our entire wedding. Our bridal party and family loved him, and nothing about the day was rushed or stressful; it felt so natural. Each picture is personal and in the moment. They are magical and we receive compliments about them every day-it's fun when you get to see yourself in the photos, too! We wholeheartedly recommend Derk's Works! PS- Alex, who shot our PHOTOBOOTH, was just as awesome!

We had SO MUCH FUN with Benjamin, both during the planning stages and on our wedding day. He was never in the way, but was always capturing the important moments and candid expressions, and constantly coming up with unique and creative ideas. He has an incredible eye for a cool photo, and is definitely a very talented and artistic photographer. To top it off, he's just so darn cool that I wish we could hang out with him every weekend! We would hire Derk's Works again in a heartbeat.

Derk's Works provided us with amazing pictures, which wasn't a surprise having seen what Benjamin was capable of on his website and blog. What should not be underestimated is Benjamin himself. You have to like your photographer, considering they will be following you around all day, and Benjamin did not disappoint. He was pleasant, funny, confident, reassuring, and professional, to say the least. We give Derk's Works two thumps up! Job well done!

Every tear, every laugh, every sentimental and unexpected moment will now be shared for a lifetime through our photos.

He was nothing less than amazing!

Before meeting Benjamin in person, we spoke on the phone. What stuck out the most from this conversation was that Benjamin asked me to tell him about my husband and me: what do we do for a living, what type of people we are, how we feel about wedding photography, and so on. He really wanted to understand our personalities, and get a vibe for how he could make our wedding photographs reflect who we are.

The pictures are amazing! It has been over a month since we got them and I can't stop looking at them! They are not only well shot, but they are also visually interesting and beautifully arranged. Benjamin has an instinctual sense for space, lighting, and angles. If you are interested in non-traditional, photojournalistic wedding photographs, you have found your photographer.I could rave for hours, but I will just say, this man's work is worth every penny!
