Hi! I’m Derek
Cinematographer & Photographer
Your wedding happens in a flash! How do you capture it all? That’s Where I come In.
LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! Scratch that its more like BOUQUET! GARTER! RINGS!
Hi, my name is Derek Preciado and I have a passion for cinematography and photography! Capturing beautiful moments and creating something for amazing couples like yourselves!
In the beginning, I did a lot of work being an extra in music videos, feature films, and short films. I also did some modeling shoots. I had a great time and got to meet a lot of inspiring people in the biz. But it was what I saw that was going on behind the scenes that threw my passion for film and photo through the roof! It was the hustle, the attention to detail and the long hours they would work till their craft was perfection! That’s when I knew that I wanted to be behind the camera not in front. So I got my degree in film and photography and started to shoot short films, do commercial work and Real Estate. My passion grew after every job I did. I was hooked!
Fast forward a couple years and I met Jade, a Wedding Planner for her own business Just As Promised Events. Fireworks flew and we got married. The feeling that day was indescribable and I can’t wait for you to feel the same! It was shortly after our wedding that I knew that I wanted to start filming weddings. I want to capture all the joy, laughter and tears that you and your fiance will share together. With all that emotion its like filming “The Notebook” except better because it’s your own love story, you can’t help but cry!
So I created DPfilms Productions and together Jade and I started to work the wedding world bringing joy to many couples. Since then I never looked back! #superherocouple
I Work With You To capture Your Big Day and all its glory!
When it comes to your big day I plan to be there all day! I don’t want to miss any special detail that can make your cinematography or photography experience that much better. This day only happens once, so I want to make sure I capture all of it for you to remember for a lifetime.
On that note, I also offer Photo Booth and a Light up Love Sign to make your day a little bit more special! It’s your day, so make the most out if it!
There’s nothing more special than having a memorial film of your big day. Can you imagine looking back at your film 10, 20, 30 years from now and listening to your vows? Watching your first dance together? Or kissing for the first time as husband and wife? That’s the magic that cinematography can bring you, and that’s that kind of magic I want to leave you with when I film your wedding day.

Photography is something that I’ve always had a passion for and I am proud to offer wedding photography! Right now, I am offering a special so message me to see if your date is available.
There’s nothing more fun for you and your guests than to let loose and have fun in a photo booth. Here is where all of your guests can get goofy and take a little memory home with them. They can also leave you a funny picture in our Photo Booth guest book.

Light UP Love Sign
When it comes to your wedding, there is nothing more powerful then LOVE! So why not have a giant Light up Love Sign to show how much you two have for each other? Our Love sign works beautifully with any venue and setting. Complete with stands and a dimmer so you can control how bright you want to shine up your night.

When it comes to wedding coordination my wife Jade is the person you want to talk to! She can find a needle in a haystack when it comes to detail. She covers everything from “Day Of” to “Full-Service Planning”!

“DPfilms was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day. We booked the week before, but Derek was completely flexible and made it so simple. The quality of the video was fantastic, and the price you couldn’t beat. We are SO excited to be able to beautifully relive our day through his lens, I would hire DPfilms over in second!”
“DPFilms went over the top with their “LOVE” sign. It made the whole rehearsal dinner. It was breathtaking. It was delivered promptly and set up quickly! I would not hesitate to hire this company again.”
“Absolutely amazing experience with DPfilms Productions! Derek and his wife Jade (Wedding Coordinator) are TOP OF THE LINE! Not only did Derek capture everything we wanted for our wedding video, but he was so professional and fun! Jade and Derek are an amazing duo and I would highly recommend them to anyone I know.“
