"Perfection is an understatement to try and describe how amazing working with Derek was for our wedding. Derek has a fun personality and is very easy to talk to, which makes it better for him to understand his clients expectations. We highly recommend Derek Vento Photography and promise you won't be disappointed with his work."
"Booking Derek for our wedding day was the best decision we could have made!! Our photographs turned out better than we thought possible"
A New York native, turned southern gentleman, I'm the son of flight attendant and pilot. During my sophomore year of high school I found a niche for public speaking and photography. In the pursuit of various passions I had the opportunity to serve my community throughout several volunteer and career endeavors which ultimately led me to become a Firefighter/EMT. In furthering my career, I followed in the footsteps of my parents and currently work as an air traffic controller at one of the world's busiest airports. When I'm not working my crazy 9-5, I love to read, travel, and watch Michigan football -- GO BLUE!
An energetic, outgoing, goofy guy who loves all things aviation, photography, and coffEe
I’d love to grab coffee or a glass of wine with you and your fiancé. I know everyone is busy, including myself, so sometimes a phone/video call is the quickest and best way to chat through all the details. Either way, please reach out and let’s get something on the books.
