What they say...
“Derek was an absolute joy to work with on our wedding day. The pictures he took are absolutely stunning! He was easy to work with, calm in stressful situations, and made taking the pictures a ton of fun. He truly has a vision for quality work.
Our wedding day had terrible, rainy weather. When I called to ask about getting umbrellas, Derek had already been on the search for them for over an hour before I’d said anything. It was comforting to know he was thinking about all those details, and that I could focus on just getting married and enjoying the day. He found a way to take beautiful pictures in the rain and make them each something special. He was also open to any requests I made about photos I wanted.
Derek did a great job as our wedding photographer! I am incredibly happy with the way he document our wedding day from the big events all the way down to the little details. Thank you, Derek!”
“The photos are what you have after it’s all said and done, so for me and my (now) wife, the photographer was the most critical vendor. We spoke with many, but after skyping with Derek and seeing his portfolio, we knew we found our guy. In addition to weddings, Derek does adventure, lifestyle, landscape and portrait photography. His wheelhouse of talent and experience provided a unique lens to our wedding. He captured who we are, and our special day with a one of a kind artistic vision, which exceeded all expectations. Throughout the whole process he was professional, communicative, and on a personal level an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly, highly, highly recommend Derek DiLuzio photography for your special day or event.”
“From day one Derek was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend him as a photographer to anyone. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him, all of our guests did too. Me and my husband were dreading taking so many pictures and we were actually extremely nervous about it, but Derek made the entire process so easy, comfortable, and fun and it is evident in all the pictures. Looking back, we both agree he was our favorite vendor at our wedding. We received our pictures back in such a timely manner, and every single image was stunning. He is an incredibly talented photographer and wonderful person to be around.”
“Derek was amazing from the start. We planned our wedding from out of town and were hiring an out of town wedding photographer. So we wanted to make sure we found someone really great. I talked to SO MANY photographers and no one really stuck out to me. Derek was professional and very informative from the very beginning. Taking the time to even video chat us to explain in detail how he does weddings and what he offers. He didn’t pressure us into anything and we really appreciated that. On the wedding day he fit right in withe everyone. He coached every shot ( we were worried about having “posy” looking photos” and we felt so comfortable around him! 5 stars for sure!! Everyone who has seen his photos say they look like they came straight out of a magazine. We are so happy with how they turned out and if we ever want our photos taken post wedding in asheville (which we’ve discussed) We will definitely be asking Derek! Thank you so much again!! Keep in touch!”
“Working with Derek was an absolute pleasure. From day one, he was very responsive and communication was always speedy. The day of the wedding he was so informative and always let us know the plan, what to do, etc. He was great with the bridal party, and the guests. During the reception, I didn’t even know he was there (so sneaky). As to the end result, his work is incredible. Do not hesitate to book Derek. We gave him “free reign” on the creativity side as we wanted a more candid, editorial look for our wedding photos, and he nailed it. Every photo is a truly worth a thousand words. His website is very easy to use when it comes time to see all of the pictures. All in all, it was our joy to work with him. Thanks Derek for making all of our wedding photography dreams come true!”
“So I just finished looking through our wedding pictures for the umpteenth time today (and probably close to the hundredth time this week) and somehow every time I look at them I notice a new detail or see a different face that only leaves me more pleased with our wedding photos then I was the last time I looked. Derek Di Luzio is simply ah-maz-ing. From the start Derek was receptive and excited about our wedding and he was prompt and courteous with all communication. On the day of his excitement was contagious! Even his helper was friendly and shared his enthusiasm (he watched my shoes and held my lunch all while taking pictures, true story!). Hiring the right photographer was one of my biggest concerns, I wanted a professional that would leave me and my husband with lasting memories that were classic and beautiful… all while making me look as skinny as possible. I can honestly say that Derek delivered on all counts. The final results are breathtaking! Our pictures are gorgeous, and everyone (not just myself) looks beautiful and happy. I have pictures that I am not only proud to share but excited to pass down. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Derek!”
