Derek and his partner Cici is wonderful. We had our wedding on Nov 25th 2017 and we cannot stop saying wonderful things about them.
Originally derek was not our first choice, he was recommended by a friend who have seen them at work before. After being recommend we googled him out, checked a few of his videos and believe it not, my wife, mother in law and mother all cried watching his videos! It was a no brainer that we wanted his services. Our planners reached out and at no point had there been any regret.
Derek followed me around on my big day and Cici followed my spouse. The video taking is, what it is, but the video itself, was really something else. We asked Derek to have a same day edit for only the ceremony and tea ceremony of our wedding. As we wanted to play it for the guests at our dinner at night. We cried again, all of us. It was very beautiful, funny, and full of love. Not some slide show video, but a story to be told.
Personally would love to work with Derek again, but not going to be doing another wedding, haha. If ever the time comes for any event, would love to have Derek and Cici's services again.
Thank you Derek and Cici, that day was very memorable, but more importantly, we will be able to see it, cry over it for the rest of our lives.

I would absolutely recommend Derek Chan Films for wedding cinematography. The husband and wife team made us feel absolutely comfortable on our first meeting. They also tried to explore what we like and listened to our stories. The end product is particularly personal. It is like a film created by a close friend who knows you well and it is done in cinema quality. The films are captivating, they tell a romantic and compelling story and we were glued to our seats while watching them. We purchased the love story as well as additional footage prior to the wedding day and of course, the wedding day. Derek and Cece worked tirelessly to capture every special moment. Their artistic interpretation is beyond our expectation. We thought in the beginning that the film will only be used to show to our friends and relatives and then be put away somewhere in the attic. But their products are so entertaining that I will watch them over and over again to relive the special moments. It is definitely worth investing on wedding film and in my opinion, it is even a better investment then wedding album. Again, I'd definitely recommend Derek and Cece.

Derek and Cece are nothing short of geniuses. They're able to capture individual moments and create a whole story. My husband and I had a traditional Pakistani wedding and we're going back and forth on picking a videographer that was part of our culture or not. We realized, it's not so much about choosing someone who is familiar with the standard shots but someone who can tell a story. After watching a few of Derek's videos, we were sold and approached them to film our three day event. Derek and Cece sat down with us and went over key things to highlight, important family members, etc. But also wanted to do something crazy and make our video incredibly unique. Aside from the day of events, we met Derek and Cece the day after our wedding at Billy Bishop to take some beautiful Toronto skyline shots . Also, the day after our wedding in Cali Derek and Cece trekked a 5 hour drive to Yosemite National Park, and woke up at 3 AM to get the perfect sunrise shots. These two are incredibly committed to their craft and pour their heart and soul into the work they do. My family and I have probably seen the video close to 100 times and it never gets old. My husband and I now have our wedding to remember forever thanks to Derek Chan Films.

Derek and his team assisted us with an engagement & wedding video in Bali, Indonesia. Despite it not being our home country, Derek was well-prepared and professional. He scouted destinations ahead of time, planned for transportation for all each of the days we were together, made recommendations on other vendors he felt would fit our needs (make up artist) since we didn't know anybody in Bali or Asia.
This is our first time being filmed, so we were a little nervous, but he made it a very comfortable experience. The way he guided and directed us resulted in an absolutely beautiful video, and we didn't look nervous at all!
The quality of his service was top notch. He was reliable and quick to respond to any inquiries throughout the process. I highly recommend him!

Working with Derek Chan Films for our engagement shoot in Bali was the BEST decision we've made. After seeing his work, I immediately knew that I had to have Derek at our wedding. We had our engagement shoot in Bali. Derek did extensive research in advance to find the most beautiful spots for our shoot, hidden gem places that we would otherwise never have heard of! Our engagement shoot exceeded our expectation and thanks to Derek & Cece, we had an unforgettable experience. Derek's passion for his work is truly inspiring, which made our whole experience so much more memorable. He is always able to capture the most "EPIC" shots (quoting Derek's words), and the results are absolutely breathtaking. Derek is a true artist and is so good at what he does. On top of that, he is such a pleasure to work with and always made us feel at ease. I cannot say enough amazing things about Derek and his work. A lot of people ask me whether having a video is worth the investment and I tell them absolutely YES! A picture speaks a thousand words, and Derek's videos speaks a million. It's absolutely the best investment we have made and we are so so excited to have Derek at our upcoming wedding to capture the most important moment of our lives.
