derek wong photography style

Derek’s dedicated vision evolves with each wedding he photographs.  There is a sense of romance and serenity in his images capturing the beauty you never want to forget.  His approach to candid moments and editorial-style portraiture is what truly sets him apart.  

His style is about using poetic light to thoughtfully capture kindred and sincere moments.  He adores the natural Hawaiian light and knows how to maneuver from light to dramatic surroundings, movement to stillness while balancing with the fluidity of a dress and veil.   With his sophisticated eye, he not only captures the fine details, but captures worthy moments that seem to escape the day so quickly, thus enchanting his clients.  

His ability to have that connection with his subjects is also what creates some of the most stunning and editorial wedding images that have been published.

His love and connection to the islands is what brings him back to his home-base.  Derek’s humble confidence and creativity makes him the leading wedding photographer in Hawaii with over twenty years of experience. He is sought after from local to destination wedding clientele.
