Demian and Mary were very accommodating, professional and friendly. Even though we didn't confirm until last minute, Demian was flexible and moved around other appointments to accommodate us. I've know Demian for years and he made it a very memorable experience. Thanks again man. You guys were great
I hired Demian to help me surprise my girlfriend for a romantic proposal. After contacting Elements restaurant and letting them know my plans they put me in touch with Demian who guided me through the process and helped me develop a plan. On the big day I was really nervous, while getting a drink before dinner my girlfriend asked "why are your palms so clammy? Is everything okay?" I nervously reassured her that everything was okay. Thats when I saw Demian strolling around the restaurant and beach taking photos. Michelle noticed as well but thought nothing of it. After being seated, I nervously tried to make small talk and wondered when Demian was going to come over and was terrified of the unknown. After 5-10 minutes of being seated Demian strolled over and started talking to us. He said he was with the hotel and was taking some backdrop shots and was looking for a young energetic couple to help get a few shots with. We agreed and he took us over to the beach. After taking a few shots, he instructed Michelle to face the ocean with her back to me. At this point Demian signaled to me that it was time! I got down on one knee and held out the ring. Then he asked Michelle to turn around and face me and there I was, down on my knee. I asked, she said yes! Afterwards we finished with more shots of the two us. I could not be happier with how things turned out and Demian was as cool as a cucumber throughout. The best part is that I have the whole thing captured in awesome photos forever. I highly recommend Demian Gibbs photography and cant imagine that special day going any other way. Thank you so much!
I met Demian for the first time in Aruba a few days prior to my wedding, but I had been speaking with him for months before my wedding. Demian takes his time to explain the break down of the pictures, the wedding albums and what to expect the day of the wedding. He even spent his own time scoping out my hotel to look for good places for pictures. On the day of my wedding, Demian knew exactly which spots would make the most beautiful pictures and knew which order I wanted my pictures to be taken. My wedding album, along with one for my parents, was so beautifully done, I couldn’t be happier with them!! Demian is very professional, courteous, punctual and very responsive. He is a truly gifted photographer and extremely creative, you will not find a better photographer to work with, he is the best!!
We had a great experience with Demian Gibbs photography. From the beginning he was very easy to work with. I appreciated that he took the initiative to set up a meeting with us when he hadn't heard from our wedding planner. He appeared to be very organized, professional, and ready to go. We are in the process of picking out our favorite pictures and there are a ton to choose from! I am very happy with our choice to go with Demian Gibbs photography.
Demian recently photographed my group of 12 that were in Aruba to renew our wedding vows on the beach. He did a wonderful job and captured all of us with the joy of what was going on around us. I could not have been happier with his services and the rest of my group felt the same way. I am a travel agent and plan to refer his services to any of my clients coming to visit Aruba and need professional photo's taken.
They were awesome. Took incredible photos. They were on time and even went a little over to ensure we got everything. Very polite and experts at what they do. I recommend them to anyone.
Thanks for the great memories. They were also very quick to get our photos to us.
By far the best and sticks out from the rest! If you want amazing quality then Demian Gibbs photography is who you go to. We are beyond happy with our photos and would highly recommend to all.
Demian Gibbs was our wedding photographer and hiring him was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made. My maid of honor and I met with Demian and Mary-ann the day before our big day to go over how things were going to work and what moments/specific pictures meant the most to me to have captured. They were very friendly and made me feel completely at ease that I was going to get exactly what I wanted for pictures. It took less than a week after our wedding to receive our photos and they came out stunning. we received 200+ pictures and every single one of them looks like they came straight out of a wedding magazine. If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding, stop looking and get in touch with Demian.
If you are looking for a photographer in Aruba look no further than Demian Gibbs!! While we weren't in Aruba for our wedding we were there for a nice relaxing time together! My husband and I wanted to have some couples photos taken and after searching on google and picking out my favorite photographers I had it narrowed down to 3 different people. I finally decided to go with Demian because I just kept getting drawn back to the beautiful pictures on his website. Best Decision Ever. No seriously, we met with Demian the morning before our shoot (along with Maryann who is phenomenal by the way) and he is so personable and so easy to get along with. The day of the shoot he picked us up at the resort and took us to two different locations. He was just as easy to work with when he is behind the camera and makes you feel at ease. I can imagine him being able to make everyone in your wedding party feel at ease. He has a true talent and I couldn't be happier with the images that we received. I just wish we would've went with a different package so that we had more time with him! Next time we are visiting Aruba you best believe that we will be meeting up with Demian again!
Demian was amazing and his pictures will be treasured. He was fun to work with and has a eye for truly one of a kind shots. Our wedding was captured better than we hoped. I wish I could take him with us on all our vacation to capture the joy and environment. We would highly recommend working with him.
Had a great experience with Demian! Being our first time doing a photoshoot he was very understanding! He puts in his 100% to make you feel comfortable, he is funny, easy to work with and does an amazing job with the camera!
I loved shooting with Demian, he is professional, on time, fun to work with and creative. We returned to Aruba for our anniversary and did a second shoot with him- just as awesome as the wedding. People are amazed when they see our photo album, both photos and quality of the album
Hiring the photographer was easily one of the most important parts of wedding planning for my husband and I. In my day job, I work with many artists, and it was important for us to find someone who was more than just a run-of-the-mill photographer -- someone who could really capture our aesthetic and who we are as people on our special day. After tirelessly searching just about every photographer in Aruba (and neighboring islands), our search was completely halted the second we saw Demian's work. I think the photos speak for themselves. The raw emotion, the energy, the way he heightens the natural drama of the moment -- it's clear that Demian isn't just a wedding photographer; he's very much an artist, too. And his work reflects that.
From the very first moment we started working with him, I was blown away by his professionalism and ability to put us at ease. He was by far the most responsive of any of our wedding vendors. Within a day of contacting him to inquire about services, my husband and I were on a FaceTime call with him to address any of our questions or concerns. We were able to meet with him twice -- once a year before the wedding when we were visiting Aruba, and again days before the ceremony -- and both times he went out of his way to come to our hotel and make us feel at ease. Honestly, I'm so grateful that we had 'getting ready' photos for the simple fact that he was able to make us feel relaxed before the ceremony. And the photos are absolutely stunning -- and are on par with many pieces my clients have hanging in galleries. I really couldn't be happier with my experience, especially for the exceptionally reasonable price of the package.
Thank you, Demian, for working with us and sharing your artistry. We're really grateful.

I came to Aruba with my fiance for her timeshare week. I love the beach and wanted engagement photos in Aruba. A simple google search and I found Demian. He met us in the morning..... I felt like I knew him for years. He is very personal. Then it was time for photos... And it was pouring. He checked weather and saw it clearing up. He got our photos in and they are amazing! You would never know he just met us at how well he captured our personalities in the photos.
I met Demian a year and a half before my wedding and he was one of the first vendors we hired! Right away I knew he would be the one to capture every moment of our special day. His photos really speak for themselves, the quality of work is amazing. He is prompt, flexible and so easy to work with. He caught everything we hoped for and more on camera!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Words can’t describe how happy my husband and I were with our honeymoon pictures!
I actually love them more than my wedding pictures! I wish we would have known Demian before our wedding to fly him out to NY! My husband and I did a sunrise photo shoot session and it was breathtaking!! We highly recommend sunrise sessions over sunset! From the moment we met Demian he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. I instantly felt that we were in good hands during the photo shoot and just knew the pictures were going to be amazing! And I was right! Every picture came out perfect! He truly is talented and we HIGHLY recommend Demian to anyone looking for a photographer in Aruba!! Thank you!!!!
My husband and I were beyond pleased with our wedding photos Demian was so professional, intuitive and creative with our photo shoot. He contacted me weeks before the wedding to get my opinion on what I was going for with the photos and delivered beyond my expectations. He allowed us to be ourselves and reenact pictures that we’ve seen and also added his incredible expertise to create such an unbelievable wedding album. Everyone who has seen our pictures are blown away and say the pictures could be mistaken for a published magazine. He helped us create such unique, breathtaking photos and made our dream wedding a reality! Thank you Demian for your talented work!
Having a Destination Wedding is certainly not as easy and stress-free as you may be lead to believe. Every Bride and Groom wants their day to be perfect and memorable for everyone involved. Planning a wedding from afar is challenging and one of the first decisions you will have to make is choosing your vendors. As we began to research photographers in Aruba Demian's work just spoke to us. He captures the perfect combination of modern and trendy shots as well as the traditional images you will cherish forever. He was a pure joy to work with, always making us laugh and keeping us at ease. Demian encourages and directs you without ever being obtrusive. There were so many images my Husband and I saw that we don't remember taking or posing for. He has an incredible talent of capturing these special moments without any instruction. During the ceremony I swear we didn't see him once but judging from the photos we received you would have thought he had a group of 10 photographers helping him! You certainly will not regret using Demian as your Wedding Photographer! Not only did we receive the most incredible photos but we left Aruba with a new friend as well. Thank you Demian!

Demian Gibbs Photography: As a destination wedding bride, it can be nerve wracking to select a photographer without meeting with them first, but Demian Gibbs made the entire process smooth and relaxing from start to finish. After reviewing his work online, I reached out to Demian for pricing information and he was extremely quick to respond. As a bride, I appreciated the quick response time since many other vendors in Aruba are on “island time” and can take up to a week to respond. Throughout the entire process, he answered all of our questions and even set up a time to FaceTime with my husband and I to discuss the details of the wedding. Once my husband and I arrived in Aruba (we live in Connecticut), we met with Demian to finalize the details for the wedding. He was very professional and even brought examples of completed wedding albums to show us since our package included an album.
On the day of the wedding, Demian and his assistant arrived on time and made sure that we took all of the requested photos while still sticking to the itinerary of the day. Demian has been shooting weddings at the Riu Palace Aruba for years, so he knew all of the perfect spots to take photos throughout the resort. He was mindful of how hot it was that day so he made sure to shoot photos in other areas of the resort such as the garden and lobby, before returning to the beach to capture the rest of the photos on the beach once the sun had gone down a bit and it had cooled off.
A few days after the wedding we met with Demian again for our trash the dress shoot. He picked us up in the morning and took us to various locations in Aruba. It was helpful having someone who lives on the island taking the trash the dress photos since he knew of all these unique locations for the photos. Some of our favorite photos are from the trash the dress shoot!
Once we received the images back from Demian, we were impressed at how quickly he sent over the images to us. We found it difficult to narrow down our selections since there were so many beautiful images to pick from! He took so many amazing photos and we loved the mix of candids and posed photos. All of our friends and family loved the photos and we can’t wait to see the wedding album once it is complete! We highly recommend Demian for your photography needs, especially for your destination wedding in Aruba. - Sabrina & Jeremy
"We have known Demian Gibbs for more than 3 years now, since he has done our wedding photography back in 2014, we came to met a wonderful photographer with an even nicer personality that made us feel right at ease. Now, 3 years later, pregnant with our second baby we decided to contact Demian again to do a family shoot and the results are amazing. Honestly, I didn't expect anything less. If you need a great photographer, on time, professional with a result you'll love, he is the guy!"
Demian and his staff was an absolute pleasure to work with in our wedding. He was professional, prompt, made friends and family comfortable at all times and was an addition I would recommend to anyone looking for his work!
Your in good hands with Demian
My husband and I planned a destination wedding to Aruba with the Marriott - I was given a list to go thru and of course the minute I saw Demian's pictures, I fell in love. The style and creativity behind his work is so unique and natural. As much as I was impressed with his work, once we met him we were even more impressed by his easygoing yet professional personality - it really made the whole process feel more like hanging out with a friend you've known for years! Demian went above and beyond - a true, genuine and selfless person. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for ANY event - only downside is that he doesn't live closer to us 🙂 he would be our go to family photographer, that's for sure!Thank you Demian for making our day so special, and for capturing the entire thing perfectly. Those memories truly are priceless.
Demian is absolutely amazing!!I could not be happier with my photos!! He is so easy to work with, I am not photogenic so I was worried about my how I would look in the pictures, but he worked his magic and they all turned out stunning!! He made everyone feel comfortable and I would highly recommend him!!
I began the search for a photographer when my fiancé and I decided to have a destination wedding in Aruba. For me, booking the right photographer was the most important part of the wedding (other than finding my dress, of course! And marrying my husband...) I looked at several websites and contacted a few who presented work that I liked. Demian responded immediately, and I was very impressed with his professionalism while still being friendly and personable. I felt like I'd known him for years! I was very excited to have the opportunity to meet him and see his work in person when my fiancé and I went to Aruba to visit with our Wedding Coordinator a year prior to our wedding. I knew immediately that he was the photographer for us!
Fast forward to our wedding day! To say that he went above and beyond is an understatement. I have never met a professional who is so passionate about his work and who cares so much about his clients to not only deliver what he was hired to do, but to surpass all expectations and make the entire experience unforgettable. He went out of his way to accommodate my fiancé and I and our large wedding party, and helped make us all feel comfortable and relaxed, which is so important! Many of our guests even commented on how great he was, not only as a photographer but also in his demeanor. We also had so much fun with him during our "Trash the Dress" session as he took us to some amazing locations around the island!
My new husband and I couldn't wait to view the pictures and we were so excited when they were ready! And we were certainly not disappointed! They were better than we could have ever imagined. Looking through them, we were brought back to the most important day of our lives together and they truly told the story of our wedding day and captured all the emotion and special moments that happened throughout. We are beyond thrilled to have such beautiful memories to look back on and to share with our family and friends. A wedding day goes by so quickly and I know so many brides who regret decisions they made in choosing the wrong photographer. We are so glad to have chosen Demian as our photographer, and would do it again. We highly recommend him, and would have given him more stars if we could!!
Demian is an amazing photographer who knows what he does! Everyone who looks at my wedding pictures asks about the photographer and tells me how beautiful they have turned out! He is incredibly talented and I am so glad I got to work with him for my once in a life time day!!!
Where do I begin??? From day one of planning I knew that photography would play one of the biggest roles in my wedding. I found Demian and he quickly became more than my photographer, but a friend. He spent many days talking to me and learning my tastes. For a whole year before my wedding Demian made sure to keep in touch with me and get to know me! He even convinced me to do a surprise Boudoir Shoot and my fiancé couldn't have been happier! When finally meeting him and working with him he made not only me, but everyone in my wedding party feel so comfortable. He took time out of his busy schedule to rush a trash the dress shoot for us and never once made us feel like we were disturbing him. Finally, his work! I knew he was good when I booked him, but after seeing the photos I was simply amazed. He is an phenomenal photographer and an amazing person. Extremely professional yet makes you feel like you're talking to an old friend. I highly recommend him and can't wait to come up an excuse to go to Aruba again and have him photograph us!
Where do I begin? We found Demian's website online while trying to find a photographer for our wedding. The second we saw his photos we fell in love. We went down a year before the wedding & met for engagement photos with him. The second we met him, it was an instant connection. He is amazing, talented, down to earth, talented, the list could go on & on. He made us feel comfortable & relaxed. I knew when we got our photos back, they would be nothing less then amazing. The day of our wedding, he was punctual, on time & ready to go. I am getting chills just writing this review (and a few tears as well) the second he came to my room, I knew it was game time. He made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Everything was natural. He made me not nervous anymore. He did such an amazing job capturing the moment. I believe that a photographer is one of the most important (if not the most important) thing for your wedding day. This is the way you're going to remember the best day of your life. We got our photos back in a timely manner. I was beyond blown away. The colors, the photos, everything! Everything was perfect. I was blown away. We recommend him 100%! We couldn't be any happier with our choice.
Words can't begin to express how thrilled my husband Brendon and I are with the entire experience with working with Demian. I knew from the moment I saw his stunning photos on his website, that he was who I wanted to have capture the moments of our special day! He's very responsive, and his down to earth & outgoing personality instantly made us feel like we had known him forever, which made the photo taking process feel very comfortable & natural. We would highly recommend Demian to anyone looking for a photographer to capture their wedding day, or any other event. There is no doubt that you will be stunned by his true talent. Demian, you are truly amazing at what you do, and it was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for everything, we'll be forever grateful!
