DeRonn is an INTERNATIONALly-acclaimed wedding, PORTRAIT, and event photographer based in New York City.
Some people say that we chase the things that we love, but for me, photography has always chased me. I've always had an eye for detail and story and being able to step back and see a situation. And with a camera, I see the power that it has in other people's lives. It gives me great joy to see people and watch them come alive in front of the camera - to see people who were once nervous to entrust me with being vulnerably themselves and to see the beauty in who they are. As a visual storyteller, I believe that good photo storytelling requires looking for details. Big stories are usually built from a string of many details. I have found that the extra effort required to notice details often teaches me more about enhancing the photography experience for both the client and myself.
A traveler at heart, I have visited over 50 countries on six continents and lived abroad in one country (Ghana) so far. Through my passion for visiting new countries around the world, experiencing new cultures, and embracing the unknown I have found a distinct place for my photography with my inquisitive and engaging personality coupled with my need for artistic expression.
I am a seasoned destination wedding photographer, having photographed couples in Brazil, Cameroon, France, Italy, Jamaica, Morocco, South Africa, and throughout the US. I am known for my use of gorgeous natural light, epic settings, an eye for style, and creating timeless photographs. My work has been featured by The New York Times, Munaluchi Bridal Magazine, BuzzFeed, CBS, The United Nations, and more.
