Derek Hui is an established photographer with operations based in the Greater Toronto Area. Specializing in lifestyle and wedding photography, we here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group, have often encountered Derek in his natural habitat; right inside the hustle and bustle of the most hectic of wedding settings, collecting snapshot after snapshot of perfect pictures for the beloved bride and groom. An avid fan of fine art and photo-journalism, Derek found his calling in photography rather by chance, though it’s no random miracle that Derek’s skill in photography has taken him on a journey through the inner world of weddings, experiencing alongside our videographers and cinematographers here at SDE Weddings many-a-moment of marriages made complete.
We caught up with Derek in between his busy schedule of bridal shoots to ask him a few pertinent photography questions, and to get to know a little bit about himself and what it’s like to be a photographer. Being a storyteller-at-heart through his work, we were interested in Derek’s very own story; what brought him into photography, how he began this journey, what’s keeping him going, and what pointers if any can he give to aspiring photographers and indeed anyone interested in the wedding industry.
