Derek was our photographer for our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures and I would highly recommend him to anyone! My husband and I both freeze in front of cameras but Derek helped us to feel comfortable and relaxed, and thus was able to capture some amazing and very special moments. Throughout the process, he was very personable, yet professional and a breeze to work with. His expertise and familiarity with wedding photography allowed our wedding day to flow smoothly and without a hitch. We received our proofs via DVD very soon after the wedding and were truly impressed with the quality of his work. Derek takes amazing pictures and we are thrilled with all of ours- and there are tons to choose from!

I am a wedding coordinator/planner and I enjoyed working with Derek on a wedding we had together this past September. He was very busy when I first called him, but told me what I needed to know and then I felt pretty confident knowing he had the timeline for the day and photography start time all set. He was very efficient with pictures and got some great shots of my bride and groom. He does amazing work for a great price because he loves what he does!! I would highly recommend Derek for any bride that wants a great photographer for engagement or the wedding day shots. He really has a talent for what he does!

Cons: Can't seem to think of one...

Let me just say Thank You Derek! Derek did an absolutely wonderful job. He is a great photographer and easy to work with. He and his assistant showed up early and started shooting... I had not even realized they had arrived. They did a fantastic job catching all the moments of the day. The pictures are beautiful.

I spent months looking for a photographer; honestly, it was really my own concern as I had two mothers planning the rest of our wedding. I was devastated to realize that all of the photographers I liked would have cost $10,000+ for what I was looking for. The moment I walked into Derek's Studio, I knew I was going to book him. There was nothing left to consider. His work is right up there "the Best of the Best" with those photographers who are looking to brake the bank, but he he really has AFFORDABLE prices. Not to mention, he is so great to work with!

In my opinion, anyone would be crazy not to book him. He gives you exactly what you want for a fraction of the cost! I could not of asked for anything more!

Thank You so much!!!

I just wanted to say that the pictures taken of our daughter's September wedding were the most beautiful of any I have seen anywhere. Now I know I am prejudiced with the pictures being of my child, but I took time before we contacted Derek to look at a lot of pictures on a lot of websites and his are as good as it gets. The photographs have given us incredible memories of their special day. Not only were the pictures well done but he was so kind and easy to work with. His professionalism sets the standard for the industry.

Derek was so much fun to work with. He was very creative and completely captured the photojournalist look I was going for. The pictures are absolutely amazing and look like they should be in a magazine!
I would definitely recommend him to anyone! I forgot to mention his prices are outstanding for the quality! Thank you so much, Derek!

When searching for a wedding photographer, I found the Affordable Photography web site and the prices seemed too good to be true. So, before hiring Derek (Affordable Photography), I checked him and the company out with the Better Business Bureau and on line reviews on several web sites. I found nothing but positive information. He even has a great photo of downtown posted on the Nashville.gov web site (just go to Nashville.gov and search on Derek Lee). After talking with him in person and reviewing more of his work, we decided to hire him.

Our daughter was married in August and I can tell you that I'm sure glad we decided on Affordable Photography. Derek and his assistant showed up on time (actually, early), had a plan, kept us on schedule without being pushy and were pleasant and accommodating to all of our requests.

They took photos before, during and after the wedding and at the reception and I can't say enough good things about the quality of Derek's work. Not only did he capture the event, but he captured the emotion of the day as well. We probably could have paid a lot more for a photographer but I don't believe the quality of the photos would have been any better. Plus, we can buy high-quality, professional reprints of the photos in larger sizes on the web site at about what you would pay if you went to the local drug store.

I highly recommend Derek and Affordable Photography. The pictures are everything we hoped they would be and we got them at a great price!

I cannot recommend Derek Lee of Affordable Wedding Photography highly enough. He was absolutely wonderful to work with. At our very first meeting, he spent an hour and a half answering all of my questions and just talking with me about what he does and the services he provides.

On the day of our wedding, Derek arrived right on time and ready to start shooting. He made sure that we were on schedule so that we didn't miss getting any of the pictures we really wanted. He was efficient and extremely easy to work with, giving great direction and taking a wide variety of shots. Derek also did a great job of capturing the little moments of the day, all the way from getting ready to our send-off at the end of the evening--all of the candid shots were taken with care and were just as special (if not more so) than the posed photos.

Derek was extremely discrete during both the ceremony and reception. I didn't even notice him once during the ceremony, yet he didn't miss a single important moment. He was also more than happy to take any pictures requested by us and our guests. The CD of our photos, along with our online gallery information, arrived just 2 weeks after the wedding date--exactly as promised. All of the images are extremely high quality, with clear attention to detail. And the fact that all of Derek's packages are reasonably priced is the icing on the cake.

My husband and I also found Derek (Affordable Wedding Photography of Nashville) on the internet. We were immediately impressed with his work. We researched many, many other photographers, but we always came back to Derek.
He did a wonderful job with both our engagement and wedding photos. He was very professional, very patient, and he was like a ninja at the wedding (where he took over 600 photos!). When I told people how many there were, they couldn't believe that only one photographer had been there.
The photos are all so beautiful!! We absolutely love them!!! You will not get a better deal than this.

Pros: Very talented, very affordable, get all photos on disc

When I was choosing a photographer, I resorted to finding a photographer online. I was hesitant, then I asked Derek for references. Derek was more than willing to help me with this. I contacted several of his clients via email, and they all stated how excellent he was. I will have to say their recommendations could not even begin to tell how great his pictures are. Derek Lee is an amazing photographer. He captured our day perfect. It is amazing, the small things that often go forgotten, but not with Derek, he captures the excitement of the day. From the beautiful flowers to the exquisite detailing of the bride's dress, to last minute hugs before going off in the sunset. He is able to capture the moments perfectly. Derek captures the pictures excellently, while blending well with your guests. You will not be disappointed with the extrodinary quality of images. Every picture he captures is yours to keep. At our ceremony he took over 500 images and in a few weeks after the ceremony, we received the CD in the mail with all of the images on it. We critiqued the images and made a few edits, and Derek was more than willing to edit our images as we suggested. I would highly recommend his services to anyone getting married.

Pros: Affordable, Images taken are yours to keep

I would highly recommend photographer Derek Lee to anyone for their wedding photography. He was very professional, courteous, organized, and his pictures are wonderful! My daughter and her groom live out of town and were unable to get to Nashville for engagement and bridal portrait sessions. The only pictures that they were able to have were taken were on their wedding day- which of course, is the most important day. Derek was able to capture that day beautifully! The pictures are everything that we hoped for. He was able to capture the whole day in pictures - bride, groom, wedding party, intimate moments, funny events, family & friend groups, traditional rituals, and anything else we asked for or Derek thought of himself. I have two other daughters and definitely hope that Derek is available to photograph their weddings, also. Thank you, Derek!

My husband and I got married 10/18/08 and couldn't be happier that we chose Derek as our photographer! The packages he offers include everything you need and don't cost an arm and a leg. Our engagement pictures were wonderful and captured us so well. I would highly recommend a bridal portrait session as it gives you another chance to wear your dress and the pictures you get from it are AMAZING! I've had sooo many compliments on my portrait. Our wedding pictures were GORGEOUS as well! We've ordered many for family and friends and all are impressed with them! Derek is very nice and produces high quality pictures. You won't find a photographer that does such a great job for a better price! Whether or not you're on a budget, Affordable Wedding Photography is the way to go. We HIGHLY recommend Derek!

Derek Lee was an absolutely amazing photographer. He was the best price we could find for the best quality. His wedding photography packages come with absolutely everything you would need and for a good price. The prints we received from him are very nice and professional looking. He was very willing to work with us to rearrange the photography package. On the wedding day he was very energetic and professional. We had a very tight time line to stick to and he made sure to stick to it without being pushy. We are very pleased with our pictures and would highly suggest booking Derek's services.

If you are searching for a wedding photographer, look no more. Derek is the best you're going to find at the most affordable prices! You are TRULY getting the best quality for an unbelievable price.

Since my wedding in August, two of my friends have contracted Derek for their own weddings. So you better sign up quick!! Thanks Derek and Charlie for making my day so special!!

I just wanted the entire world to know the quality and professionalism of Derek w/Affordable Wedding Photography. Derek recently handled the photography at my wedding. He is a talented and very amiable person. He provided above and beyond the quality of photographs that we ever expected. They were made available to me and my husband in less than a week. He took the time in our initial meeting to answer all of my questions wtih genuine concern. I would DEFINATELY recomend him to anyone getting married and wanting fabulous quality photographs at an affordable price.

Our daughter recently married at our home in October. We used Affordable Wedding Photography, Derek was our photographer and my husband and I would like say we wanted to give our daughter a beautiful wedding, but our budget was limited. We chose Derek based on two things, the quality of his work and his prices. We shopped around and was getting very discouraged with hearing things like $3000 - $5000 for wedding photography. We found the Affordable Wedding Photography website and was excited that we found a price we could live with and the pictures, at least on his website were very nice. My daughter and I met with Derek at his office and he answered all our questions and concerns. We hired him on the spot.
Two weeks after our daughters wedding we received our dvd with the pictures and were moved very emotionally by what we saw. Even though we had a smaller than we wished budget for the wedding, the pictures we saw made our daughters wedding look like a million dollars. Derek treated us like we were spending millions, he was very patient and easy to work with and even took special requests shots from our guests. Speaking for my husband and our daughter, we could not be more pleased with the services provided by Affordable Wedding Photography.

This is the email I sent Derek recently:
Hello Derek,

Tiffany and I wanted to write you a quick "thank you" for all your hard work and follow thru on our wedding. Tiffany and I have been either in or a part of several weddings over the years, and I do not mind telling you that we did not look forward to the wedding photography session.

However, your professional attitude and time management approach to the session made the photography session seem important, but the session did not overshadow our "BIG" day. You were able to capture all the necessary photos and many candid shots during the wedding, but you were not intrusive on the ceremony or after party.

It was also a pleasure to work with you in the studio on packages and prices, during the engagement session, and after the wedding at the photo showing in the studio. You were able to communicate effectively and arrived on time at scheduled events ready to begin work. The added bonus of a web page and unexpected slide show was exceptional.

I have not even got to the photos! Your photo work has been a highlight of the wedding. Tiffany and I still stare at the photos on our wall and have spent a couple of hours arranging our 300 photos inside our photo book. You have created a set of photographs that we will proudly display in our home and to our family and friends for years to come. We have enjoyed your extra photo shop work on the prints and the ability to have all the images quickly after the wedding on a disk and web site. I have also been able to make numerous large prints with no problems and received compliments from the print department.

Tiffany and I send you best wishes for the future with your career in photography

I just read the unfortunate post of someone that is not happy with Derek. Well sometimes things are taken out of context and misunderstood. As far as my dealings with Affortable Weddings (Derek) I couldn't be happier. I have exchanged e-mails with Derek a couple of times since August and spoken with him on the phone once. I am just now reserving him because it took so long to get a date reserved through the church. I have been very pleased with my communication with him. He has ideas and that is what makes great pictures. His work speaks for itself.

All the pictures were beautiful! Everyone who sees them comments on how clear and vivid the colors are and wants to know who the photographer was. The 11 x 14 of Megan and Chad in the wheat field is the perfect picture. It totally expresses the two of them! I can't stop looking at it! :-) Someone who saw the wedding pictures said they heard one of the top 10 prettiest places to have a wedding this year was a South Dakota wheat field. Derek captured the picture in KY!! Derek gives top quality photographs at a very reasonable price including great turn around time on initial viewing and orders of wedding photos. Our family and friends ordered many pictures. The convenience of the website was great. I know it's got to be a lot of fun capturing just the right pictures on such a special occasion for couples. I would recommend Affordable Wedding Photography of Nashville for any occasion you want captured in pictures.Good Luck to you always Derek!

I can't stop looking at it! :-) Someone who saw the wedding pictures said they heard one of the top 10 prettiest places to have a wedding this year was a South Dakota wheat field. Derek captured the picture in KY!! Derek gives top quality photographs at a very reasonable price including great turn around time on initial viewing and orders of wedding photos. Our family and friends ordered many pictures. The convenience of the website was great. I know it's got to be a lot of fun capturing just the right pictures on such a special occasion for couples. I would recommend Affordable Wedding Photography of Nashville for any occasion you want captured in pictures.Good Luck to you always Derek!

Pros: Pictures on the website fast! Creative pictures

.

Derek thank you for the time and effort you put into doing our Engagement photos. I highly recommend you to my friends and family and they all love they work you did! Very Creative!! For those of you searching...we looked around everywhere comparing prices and found that Affordable Photography was the least expensive and basically get more for your money. We had a great experience and very timely service. I would recommend Derek to anyone!! Thank you again Derek!!!

I am sooo glad we picked Affordable Wedding Photography. We could not have asked for better service. Everyone at the wedding loved Derek. He was so professional and so kind. And to some it all up our wedding pictures were EXTREMELY beautiful. He made me look like a princess, which was the most important!!! After we recieved our pictures which was exactly 1 week and 6 days, we were trying to figure out how we could use his services again. Once we recieved our DVD in the mail he placed all of our pictures on his website for 30 days, all of our friends viewed them and they loved them as well. My sister even made the comment, "Keep his info for me when I get married".
I know a couple of people getting married soon and I referred them to him. His prices are great and honestly I don't think I've seen anyone elses wedding photos that look as good as ours. We were on a tight budget and Derek worked with us; We changed our date a couple of times and he was still there. PLEASE USE THIS PHOTOGRAPY COMPANY.....GREAT CHOICE!

We found Derek on line. We live in Florida and making arrangements with Derek over the phone and e-mail was not a problem at all. When we met with him and looked through the sample albums we realized that he is the right photographer for us. We wanted candid pictures that told the story of our wedding day and he captured our day perfectly. He understood what we wanted perfectly. He was punctual, professional, unobtrusive and very creative with the shots he took. The pictures were of very good quality and we got many compliments on our choice of photographer. I would recommend Derek to any one without any qualms.

These guys are terrible, they shot my son and I got the pictures back and there were images with the heads cut off and the prices were outrageous especially for the poor quality of prints that I received, I would not recommend these this company for anything maybe the army because I complained to them about this and got nothing in return no reprints nothing all they said was all sales are final and that if I would like I could set up another shoot at half off, great service, they need to learn customer service!

My husband and I used Derek for our wedding photos, and they were amazing. I had trouble choosing the photos I wanted to reproduce because there were so many amazing shots. This was my second wedding. For my first wedding, I spent thousands of dollars on a different photographer and I was completely disappointed. So I was thrilled to find Derek, who not only charges a reasonable fee, but also gives his clients the rights to reproduce their own wedding pictures. I couldn't have asked for more. He was wonderful on our wedding day as well. Punctual, professional, unobtrusive and creative. I highly recommend him!

All my guests were impressed with him. We recommend Derek to everyone we know and we believe he should get this award! Katie and Kevin

My husband and I found Derek when searching the web looking for a photographer for our wedding. We chose Derek because of the quality of the pictures on his website as well as the affordable price. We were more than pleased with the customer service as well as the picture quality and creativity when we received our engagement and wedding pictures. Unlike the review that was posted here earlier it wouldn't surpise me if this guy wasn't a jealous photographer posing to be a client. If you would like to see some of our wedding pictures please e-mail us at debchapin24@hotmail and you judge for yourself.

Pros: The detail and hard work that he puts in his work

Cons: none

My experience has been great so far. My bridal portraits turned out wonderfully and I received so many compliments on them from friends and family. He has some great, creative ideas, is easy to work with, and I would recommend him to others. Pricing was very reasonable compared to other photographers with similar style.

Derek did a fabulous job for our May '06 wedding. Living in NY, we relied on the internet to find a photographer for our Tennessee nuptials. We discovered after hiring Derek that he photographed my brothers wedding 6 years earlier and that we also had attended the same high school. I took that as a good omen and it was. Bonus is that he is also reasonably priced!

I found Derek via the web. The thing that caught my eye about the photos posted on his website was their beauty, creativity, and very 'real' quality. As an older, second-time bride, I didn't want a lot of photos with 'posed' lines of people all dressed alike. I wanted photos that captured the happiness and love of our wedding day. Derek did all of that beyond my my greatest expectations. And in the process even managed to make a chubby, 49 year-old bride look good!!! As I look through our portfolio, I find myself smiling and enjoying our wedding day all over again. The photos go beyond just beautiful? they really capture the joyous enthusiasm of our day and the love in the air. I can't thank him enough for his wonderful work!

But not only was his work great, his prices are reasonable, his delivery prompt, and contact and customer service excellent!

My husband and I found Derrick on the internet after much looking around. We went to his studio and looked through his albums. We instantly knew he was the one for us. We got a free engagement session when we booked our wedding. When i saw the pictures he took of us at the park I was amazed. I think we got 50-60 pictures and they were perfect. We got them a couple of days later in the mail in a nice portfolio with the CD and copyright so we could go to Wolf camera or Snapfish and print as many as we wanted and in any sizes that we wanted. Then he did our wedding. He was early and professionally dressed. He stayed out of the way and was not obtrusive but still got every picture that I wanted (+400 extra!) I got almost 500 pictures from my wedding some black and white, some in color, some in both. My pictures were online and available for me and my family to look at when I returned from my honeymoon. I received the album with all of my pictures in 4X6's about 2 weeks later and again the CDs to go print as many as I wanted in any sizes I wanted for the mothers and family. No other photographer offers that. You usually have to pay them the rediculous prices and only get 100 or so pictures and only certain sizes then you pay a couple hundred dollars more for mothers albums. Then if you want more pictures later on you have to order them from the photographer at the crazy high rate. etc. etc. None of that with Derrick. You get the CD with all of the photos on there so you can get as many as you want for cheap anytime, and he does such great quality work. I couldnt have been more pleased with the pictures. They all were perfect. There were a couple things about my wedding I would have done differently, but Derrick is not one of them. He did a great job on my wedding and I recommend him to all of my friends.

Cons: none that I know of

Derek did an OUTSTANDING job on my daughter's wedding. He was extremely personable, agreeable, and had GREAT ideas for unique photos. If I had another daughter I would definitely call Derek again. We have had nothing but compliments on the pictures that he took. THANK YOU DEREK!!
