Richmond, VA & Worldwide

You are in love and you are alive. Derek Fowler Photography, located in Richmond, Virginia and surrounding areas , has developed a clear vision of what he hopes to capture in a wedding story -- not only the planned moments, but the in-between looks, honest words and real emotions. “A photographer for time-travelers,” he vows to document the most intimate and valuable details, resulting in meaningful images that take you back to those moments for years to come.



Hi there, I'm Derek, a wedding photographer and owner of Derek Fowler Photography! I'm a Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. For almost ten years I have been blessed to work along side brides, grooms, and many in the wedding industry that have helped me to get to where I am today. When it comes to your wedding day or portrait session, my number one priority is that we have fun! Sunsets, color, and Virginia views are just a few of the things that inspire my work. From the groomsmen playing tag or the bridesmaids spinning in their dresses, I look for ways to make my still images come alive with motion and avoid standing around.  Together, we will document the real you in a fun and artistic way.

Derek was literally the best! He made my husband and I feel so comfortable while taking pictures and we laughing and had so much fun with him! He went above and beyond for us and the pictures turned out stunning! I couldn’t have picked a better photographer.

Within the first few minutes of meeting Derek, my husband and I were confident that we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He made us feel comfortable instantly almost as if we had known him for a long time. He is committed to giving the BEST product by always being early, prepared, and full of ideas for the different shoots.
