Socially Distant & Collectively Loved

Benjamin began Derk’s Works over 15 years ago and knew from the beginning that photography was his calling and passion. As our business as evolved over the years, we have met so many people that have forever impacted our life, through our relationships, and support of our business. This business has allowed us to provide for our family and others as well as better understand God’s eternal love.

During these changing and uncertain times our events and weddings have come to a halt in light of the safety and healthy of our community and country. But we are still here and we need you!

We have 3 ways Derk’s Works is open for business! First, our Print Shop, for both art prints that we have selected and prints from your Derk’s Works Weddings and Sessions. Secondly, we are offering 19% off all of our books and albums for all new orders. Add a parent album, a coffee table book of your past three mini sessions, or pre-order a book for your upcoming wedding. Lastly, we are offering Derk’s Works Gift Cards for any upcoming Derk’s Works session (family, graduation, maternity, infant and yes MINI SESSIONS). We are opening 25 early bird mini session gift cards for this years mini sessions! Those first 25 mini session gift cards will have first access to scheduling for the year!

We would be honored if you considered supporting us in any of these ways or if you know someone who might be interested please share and pass it along! We have always thrived due to the amazing community of our friends and family and we know we will continue to do so in the weeks and months to come!

Thank you!
