"You have a gift … an extraordinary ability to capture the spirit and the essence of these very amazing people. It still makes me smile, and occasionally moves me to tears, to look closely at these faces."
"Working with John Derryberry was all I could have hoped for when I got my senior portraits done. John worked with me to help craft a vision for what we would shoot, and then worked meticulously to execute it as we'd imagined. I couldn't be happier with the pictures and the experience of getting them taken."
"We have used John Derryberry for 20 years to photograph all of our family milestones. He is amazing … worth every penny and then some!"
"John Derryberry is the best at creating contemporary portraits that appear effortless. He is great with kids (and dogs) and is very perceptive and professional."
"The enlarged photo of dad is breathtaking. It truly captures the essence of him.”

"Your work is splendid! I have just finished perusing the latest issue of Town and Country, read about you and hopped on your site. A magnificent journey of photography.
"I teared up when I opened the photos of the kids and me. I am so happy every time I see these unbelievable pieces! Thank you!"

"Years ago, I had the privilege of meeting some of the great names in photography, including Philippe Halsman, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Joseph Costa and Ezra Stoller.
Who could have predicted that, one day, I would meet another great photographer -- you -- who impressed me just as much by skillfully capturing the unique beauty of my granddaughter and her proud father.
