New website what?

It’s been a long time coming, but welcome to the new home of Derek Montgomery Photography on the internet. Below I’m going to talk a little about my business and how it’s evolved over the last few years.

Over the years, our business has experienced a number of changes. Back in 2009 when DMP was born, I was primarily a weddings, photo booth and a little bit of news guy. Fast forward 12 years and one global pandemic later and our focus has become much sharper. I still do weddings and news, sold the photo booth business and have expanded greatly into the team and individual sports world.

How did this come about? Adapting to life’s circumstances. I still LOVE photographing weddings, but after giving up 30+ weekends a year and missing a ton of my kid’s activities and most importantly free time with my family, I made the decision to step back a bit from the hustle and bustle of weekend after weekend of weddings and photo booths and traded that for weekends watching my kids on athletic fields or just hanging out with them at home. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made and I’m happier for it.

That doesn’t mean I’m not as busy as ever. Around the same time I stepped back from weddings a bit, the team and individual sports side of my business has blown up. I get to combine one of my passions–sports–with a job that I love–photography. Producing high-quality, well-lit sportraits seems like a match made in heaven for me and I’m excited about where this part of the business is heading.
