"MUST USE VENDOR!!! Personable, Artistic and Visionary. I am pretty shy and not one who likes posing for pictures. But Derek makes you feel very comfortable. He is open to any pictures you want to take. One thing I LOVED is that you could just be walking down some steps and he will say, "Wait! Stop, I see something" and he has this vision for an amazing picture. (Can you tell this happened to me day of the wedding?!) For the engagement pictures there were so many amazing pictures it was so hard to choose from for the Save the Date!! For the wedding I did have some specific pictures I wanted due to the venue and Derek captured all of them!! I had a specific list for the family pictures the day of the wedding (and of course, day of, the family was more lenient about what pictures they wanted.... go figure), but Derek came with a list to make sure all were taken. SO THANK YOU for being so prepared in case they did want all of those pictures! He has a form that is super organized to fill out so he knows all the times of the events and what pictures to take when. Throughout the day he came in to check in on me and my girls. Take some candid's. Check in on the guys. He also walked around the venue to spot out some locations for pictures after the ceremony. This was perfect because during cocktail hour pictures ran very smoothly and efficiently. Even family was complimenting on Derek because they could just tell he was capturing everything!!! Also, nothing took too long that everyone go to enjoy their time. You get every picture taken for the engagement and wedding. So you can reminisce on this time forever. The day of the wedding, he was at the venue at 11:30am until 10ish pm? Derek and his 2nd photographer will literally be there to make sure he captures your entire day. Others you have to pay extra if they will be at the wedding over 8 hours. But not Derek, he will be there for unlimited hours day of, which is very convenient when you want him to capture the hair/make up portion of your day and have a long reception. My now husband and I are obsessed with every photo he has shared so far! We can not wait for our wedding pictures to come out. Yes I am writing this before the wedding pictures are officially out. We already know they will be amazing. Thank you Derek for capturing our amazing day!! You were the perfect photographer for us!!!"

"I cannot recommend Derek and his team enough!! He is everything you want in a professional photographer; reliable, prepared, flexible, detail-oriented, creative, and (of course) extremely talented. The wedding packages he offers are very reasonably priced, especially for the quality of service you receive. On top of all of that, Derek is also so personable and easy to work with. He will make you feel comfortable in front of a camera, which shows in the final product. For our engagement session, he traveled out of state and arrived an hour early just to scout shooting locations. On our wedding day, Derek and his team not only stuck to our time-crunched schedule but also came up with some amazing suggestions of places/poses to shoot that I would have never thought of myself. We were thrilled when we checked social media the very next morning and Derek had already posted a "sneak peak." We received the rest of our photos three weeks later, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Derek captured every moment perfectly- from the formal family photos in the church to the candid shots on the dance floor. We have gotten so many compliments about them from our friends and family. Highly, highly recommend! You will not be disappointed!"

-Samantha S.

"I can't even begin to describe the AMAZING experience that we had with Derek. He was the photographer for our friends wedding and from what I saw, we knew we needed to meet with him. From the moment we met with him in a small coffee shop, we both had an instant connection with him. Derek is very easy going and has a great eye. We had so much fun during our engagement shoot that we knew our wedding would be even more special. Derek and Jason captured every minute of our wedding. From the moment they arrived at the hotel until we all left the reception, they were there for it all. I had multiple guest tell me how much they enjoyed watching the photographers capture the day and could tell how much they enjoyed doing this. The few pictures I have seen from our wedding bring tears to my eyes. Derek was kind enough to share a sneak peak while on our honeymoon, we were thrilled! Derek had such a beautiful vision for our day. The talent and professionalism that Derek has is like no other. He's the best of the best. We look forward to working with him in the future!"

-Cathy B.

"Derek Dibrell of Chase Images is a visionary photographer. He traveled to D.C. for both our engagement photo session in the fall of 2018 and our wedding in April 2019 from Pittsburgh, PA, and came up with some really unique and just stunning photographs that helped capture the day(s) in an artistic and genuinely lovely way. He also made sure that we got all the standard, posed photos we needed with our family and friends. We are thrilled with how all our photos came out, and that we have so many incredible shots to choose from. Derek is kind, flexible, and helps make you feel at ease! It was a pleasure to work with him, and we highly recommend."

-Kim S.

"We are so incredibly thrilled and grateful that we had Derek as our photographer. He, along with Jason, his second photographer, did a phenomenal job on our wedding day. We truly cannot recommend Derek enough! His photos are incredibly high quality, with a classic and timeless feel to them. He got a lot of “wow” shots that we didn’t expect. Leading up to the wedding, Derek was super communicative and organized. He was flexible with letting us ask for different shots or poses, and also had a lot of ideas to share with us too. His packages are great, and having unlimited time is so nice so that you don’t have to stress about fitting all your photos into a certain time period. He was very friendly and made us comfortable at both our engagement shoot and on the wedding day. We really can’t say enough about his professionalism and the quality of the work. The photos speak for themselves - just book him!"

-Saskia B.

"Absolutely amazing! Derek is exactly the kind of photographer you want for your wedding. He is organized, easy to communicate with, creative and plans ahead. He asked us to make a list of the photos we wanted (family members etc) and it made it so much easier to take the pictures without wasting precious time on our wedding day. Derek and his assistant Jason arrived at the wedding and just got to work! He didn't need someone to tell him what to do nor did he stand around waiting for someone to tell him what to take pictures of. When my husband and I first met with him, we basically just said said yeah we need some pictures. Derek pulled out some of his other work and gave us all kinds of ideas! He even took time to drive my husband and I to a new lighting exhibit downtown to take pictures and went as far as to lay down on the street just to get a good picture. Yes, this guy cares so much about his work he is willing to lie down on the city streets of Pittsburgh. Really nice guy and just an overall amazing photographer. You can tell he is passionate about his work and doesn't look at his events as just another paycheck. Also, it isn't like he left our wedding and we haven't communicated with him since. Even before finishing all our photos, he posted a few on his Instagram! Most photographers leave your event and tell you that they'll let you know when your photos are ready, but not Derek. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! I promise you will not be disappointed."

-Lauren C.

"Derek, our photographer from Chase Images, was wonderful. Our original photographer was unable to shoot our wedding and Derek was able to help us in a bind! He was very flexible and professional. The shots were natural and really captured who my husband and I are. We both don’t always feel comfortable in front of the camera and Derek made it easy to pose by giving us directives and putting us at ease. I love my photos from our day and I can’t wait to hang them in my home."

-Rachel P.

"My husband and I used Derek for our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. He drove down to D.C. from Pittsburgh and we took pictures all over the city. Derek was incredibly easy to work with, found some great locations for our shoots, but most importantly, the pictures he took were spectacular. We knew after the engagement photos that Derek was definitely the photographer we wanted for our wedding. Derek brought an assistant to help shoot the wedding, Jason, and together they were a dynamic duo. My husband and I could not be more pleased with Derek's work. We highly recommend Chase Images to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer with great vision who is incredibly easy to work with, phenomenally responsive via email and phone, and a fabulous value. Book Derek for your wedding ASAP!"

-Patrick S.

"My wife and I chose Chase Images for our wedding and we were not disappointed. At our first meeting, Derek was extremely attentive to all questions my wife and I asked and was always accommodating via email or to meet in person leading up to our wedding day. He was very easygoing to work with and my wife and I are quite pleased with how our pictures turned out! We definitely recommended!!"

-David C.

"Beyond grateful for Derek!!! We would not be able to relive our wedding day without the moments he captured for us.Words can not describe how talented & personable he is. Throughout planning our wedding he worked with us every step of the way .Especially, during this difficult time (covid). We recently got back our pictures , selected the ones we loved & within a few weeks we had our wedding album in our hands. Something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Every picture brings back the memory of that exact moment & that is why we chose Derek. From seeing his work & speaking with him we knew we had the PERFECT photographer for our special day! We can not thank him enough!"

-Chelsea W.

"Derek and company were amazing! They're so creative and have such great personalities. Throughout the whole process Derek was attentive and really listened to what we wanted. You can tell that they really enjoy what they do and care about their clients. Our pictures turned out incredible. The talent with Derek and his team is outstanding. The most important thing, at least for us, was that Derek took it full circle. From the first meeting to weeks after the wedding the communication, dedication, and appreciation didn't stop. I can't wait use Chase Images for all of our holiday cards, big announcements, and future family shoots. Thanks to Derek we have beautiful pictures that captured the happiest day of our life perfectly!"

-Connie R.

"I would like to start this review off by saying that Derek at Chase Images was so wonderful to work with. We are not typically the couple to write reviews, but Derek and his co-worker Jason deserve all the praise and more! We began taking engagement photos with him back in November 2020, and immediately he was easy to get along with and talk to. He listened to what we were looking for and what parts in Pittsburgh we wanted to have the photos taken. Derek has extensive experience in the Pittsburgh area and had excellent recommendations for specific sites in locations to take the photos. Our favorite part was that he took our suggestions into consideration, and we took a photo on the tennis court that both my wife and I love! The turnaround time and quality of the photos were both 5/5 Stars. We recently had our wedding on June 5th 2021: He and his co-worker, Jason, each took photos from morning while we were getting ready up until the last drink was poured at the reception. At the end of the day, we considered them an official part of our bridal party! They kept everyone laughing and captured all of the big moments. We have already begun recommending Derek and his team at Chase Images to our friends and family who are having upcoming weddings and/or are in relationships. Save yourself the hassle of looking around for other photographers, and book at Chase Images. Their customer service, price, and quality are all phenomenal and exceeded all expectations."

-Daniel M.

"Derek was absolutely amazing to work with from our engagement session all the way to our wedding albums being delivered in the mail (which are gorgeous). He is kind and easy to work with. Every photo made me more excited for the other! His pricing is generous for everything that is included and how beautiful his photos are. Look no further!"

-Michele P.

"I recommend Derek, the man behind Chase Images, without any reservations whatsoever. He and his second photographer, Jason, did an excellent job capturing both candid and formal photos on our wedding day, and was also a great vendor to work with leading up to and following our wedding. In addition to his great eye for stunning photos, he was extremely professional and flexible as a vendor. You never know when these traits will come in handy, but working with someone like Derek relieved a lot of the stress of wedding planning. Like many couples this year, we originally planned a 2020 wedding and Derek was more than accommodating for our new wedding date. Additionally, since we don't live in Pittsburgh, much of our communication was via email, and Derek was always quick to respond, answered whatever questions we had, and was really great about working with our schedule to meet in person when we did come back to Pittsburgh prior to our wedding. Probably most importantly, Derek NAILED all of the shots that we wanted and also took great photos that we wouldn't have ever thought of. Weather on our wedding day changed every five minutes, and despite the tricky shooting conditions outdoors, we ended up with really great "moody" photos with dark clouds as well as perfectly-exposed pictures from inside our venue. Overall, I can't recommend Derek or the rest of his team highly enough!"

-Amy B.

"From our initial zoom meeting, I knew we picked the right person to capture our wedding day! Derek and Jason were amazing! Both were so easy to work with. All of my pictures were captured and they even had some ideas that I didn’t think of! I love that in a photographer! Highly recommend!!"

-Nicole T.

"We couldn't be happier with Chase Images. Planning for wedding photos can be surprisingly difficult since you have to gel well with your photographer. After meeting with a half dozen photographers it was clear that Derek was the most talented, easy going and sociable. We've gotten dozens of compliments (and hundreds of "likes") from just a couple photos he's showcased so far. I'd recommend Chase Images to anyone and everyone."

-Brendan M.

"My fiancé and I were absolutely thrilled with our engagement photos. Derek really took the time to find some beautiful and meaningful locations for us and made the experience so much fun. The final photos are absolutely gorgeous. We plan to use Chase Images for our wedding this winter and all of our future family shoots!"

-Meredith G.

"Derek is wonderful to work with, and our pictures were amazing. He was easy going, creative, and is genuinely an artist, and it showed in our wedding photos. So glad we chose him!"

-Tye S.

"I have worked with a lot of photographers and Chase Images is by far my favorite. Derek takes time to actually find out what it is the YOU want from your photos. He doesn't over edit and he captures the realness of the people around him. I would recommend Chase for any and all photography needs. I have used him a number of times both personally and professionally."

- Jessi D.

"My husband and I hired Derek to shoot both our engagement photos and wedding. I honestly could not be more pleased. They turned out incredible - I have gorgeous artsy photos, but also classic wedding portraits - not to mention, each of my guests was captured at least once in the wedding album which means so much to me. I am by no means an easy going bride and having to postpone with COVID did not help at all - Derek was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process and had no problems answering any of my questions. Derek's second shooter was great as well - my husband absolutely hates getting his photo taken so the fact that he had fun during both our engagement shoot and the wedding is incredible. Seriously, cannot recommend enough. If you are a bride with high anxiety (like myself), Derek is the way to go - you will get a ton of amazing photos and no question is a dumb question. As an aside. I am all of 5'3" and in one of my engagement photos my legs look like that of a 5'11 model (needless to say that photo is hung up in my house) - incredible, flattering photography. Absolutely nothing negative about this experience!"
