Thanks for stopping in. My name is Derek Halkett and I am a Smoky Mountain Wedding Photographer based in Knoxville, Tennessee. I grew up in a town not far from Boston and moved to Tennessee in the summer of 2016, so that my wife could attend Medical School. We are blessed with two amazing children, Aubrey and Jacob, who are my everything. Topping out the crew is our Golden Retriever named Cooper and a cat named Patches. I am entering my 9th year of photographing weddings. I have had the distinct pleasure of capturing over 350 weddings all over the United States, Italy, and Mexico. Your wedding journey begins here, let's get in touch and plan your epic wedding day.
MORE ABOUT DEREK
Alright, alight alright! You made it here so hopefully my work caught your eye and now you want more of that jaw-dropping imagery. Let’s face it, making decisions on who to hire for your wedding day can be difficult. After all, it is one of the most important days of your life, and making the right decision is a top priority. My goal is simple and involves capturing the most amazing images possible for my wedding couples. Fair warning, I am known to spoil my wedding couples rotten and go the extra mile on their behalf.
My work centers around the Knoxville, Tennessee area and the Smoky Mountains. If you are looking to book a wedding, elopement, engagement or adventure session in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, look no further. I am a licensed, insured and permitted Smoky Mountain Wedding Photographer and would love to help you capture your best day.
