Their wedding portraits by Derek Halkett Photography are amazing! Alexis & Stephen chose to incorporate the stunning natural surroundings into each of their photos, and the outcome is brilliant!

Alexis had raving reviews on how far Derek would go to capture their day: “I was insistent on getting married in the Smoky Mountains. A national park isn’t the easiest spot to find quality vendors and the kind of shots we wanted weren’t for the faint of heart. When I saw Derek’s work on WeddingWire, I was pumped, but skeptical. How could shots this good be so reasonably priced? He was so cool though. He worked with our budget and was enthusiastic throughout the entire process. Derek had done some solid prep work online and had visited the area with his kids prior to the wedding date. Last minute, I asked him to show up earlier than planned on the wedding day and he was there without question. He captured the entire day. Seriously, no detail went unsnapped. I expressed the need for waterfalls and possibly a hike. He consulted with a friend to ensure we went to the best spot. He suggested leaving our enormous bridal party behind(sheer brilliance) and taking off after the ceremony. On the way, we pulled over unannounced and jumped in the river. He followed suit and started snapping. The hike to the falls was no joke. Once we arrived, my husband and I jumped in the falls and without missing a beat he was in too. He jogged back with us to ensure we made it back in time for dinner. Above and beyond doesn’t begin to cover it. Not only would most photographers not be down with this kind of chaos, but most wouldn’t be physically capable. When we got to the venue, he ensured we took more bridal party shots. I was checking out our pictures today and quietly sobbing. The shots at the waterfall look like a postcard. Beyond the majestic magazine level pictures, he really caught the spirit of the day. The love between my husband(so real) and I was so genuinely captured, none of that awkward posing. I don’t know anyone that loved hundreds of their wedding photos. I’m so happy we hired this man. Working with him was truly a wonderful experience. He really helped take our day to the next level.”
