About Derek Chai Photography

Lydia and I both come from a healthcare background, but our real love is photographing people. We created Derek Chai Photography in 2015, and began taking portraits of families, couples, individuals, pets, and sports. We photographed our first wedding in December 2015, and fell in love with capturing beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime, never to be repeated moments for our special clients.


When we’re not busy working, we can usually be found somewhere in Adventureland, Fantasyland, or maybe Radiator Springs! We find whole new worlds with new horizons to pursue, and believe that acts of true love can indeed thaw a frozen heart. We (mostly, I) are obsessed with Disney and Anaheim is like our second home. If you’re thinking of getting married in Disneyland, be sure to give us a call (we might not even charge you)!

If you are the type of person who wants to have fun when getting photographed, you want to be in front of our camera!


We want to take your picture 🙂
