view the collections

I understand how important details are in every aspect of your wedding. Capturing the intimate, candid moments along with stylish posed portraits is how I tell the story of your day.

Your wedding is a reflection of you and it's why I'm extremely passionate about listening to your needs and providing an unforgettable experience.

I offer two wedding collections -- let's chat to discuss in detail!

"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."

learn more about me

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'm Derek

Thank you!

lET'S chat!

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.
