Enjoy our website. There is a lot of information and hundreds of sample images for you to see what our work is all about.

We look forward to working with you.

Brian C Idocks Photographics is a Wedding Photographer, serving the Tampa Bay Area, including Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater, but we will go anywhere to photograph a wedding! We also offer family portraits, couple's portraits, and environmental portraits.

Brian and Derica have won many awards over their years of photography experience. Their Wedding Photography has been showcased by several local venues as well as local, state, and International Professional Photography Organizations. Brian was Photographer of the Year for Tampa Bay in 2007, 2008, and 2009. He is to date the only person to win that distinction three times in a row. He also was named Photographer of the Year for the Sarasota area in 2008 and 2009. In addition, Brian earned the title of International Photographer of the Year for Professional Photographers of America in 2008 and 2009 as well as a Florida Top Ten Photographer for 2007, 2008, and 2009. The PPA International competition gives him the distinction of being one of the top 200 Photographers in the World! Through teaching other Professional Photographers all over the southeastern United States, Brian has earned the Craftsman Degree, given by Professional Photographers of America. This is one of the highest recognitions for speaking, writing, or mentoring on photography and positions the photographer as an authority in the industry. Brian has also earned the Florida Degree of Photographic Excellence. This award has only been given out to roughly one hundred photographers in the thirty plus year history of the Florida Professional Photographers among it's thousands of members and is earned through achieving high quality image standards as judged by other professionals in the industry. Suffice to say, it's a difficult and prestigious award to have. His style is best described as "Modern Vintage", or... "Technological Romanticissim", of course... we made those words up, but, you get the idea.

Both Brian and Derica have images in the Permanent Loan Collection for Professional Photographers of America on traveling display to serve as inspiration for other professional photographers.

Derica has a Master's Degree in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and her Undergraduate Degree is in Graphic Design. She is not just "the wife". She won Photographer of the Year in the Melbourne Florida Area three times and has nearly as many ribbons and plaques for her work as her hubby. Though we've never promoted it to this point, our Family Pictures have been making people smile for years. Together Brian and Derica are one of the most experienced wedding photography teams in Florida. We are Tampa wedding photographers, Clearwater wedding photographers, and St Petersburg wedding photographers.
Please enjoy our website. We've built it to showcase our Wedding Photography as well as our other work. We welcome the opportunity to create photographs for you and your family. Read less

I can't say enough about how great it was to work with Brian and Derica!! When I called to speak with Brian he was very helpful and happy to help me understand the process and all that is involved with the photography. He was never pushy but very professional! He too wanted to make sure we would be a good fit to work together, and that meant a lot. If what I am looking for isn't what he provides in photography then we shouldn't try to fit a square peg in a round hole. I am so pleased that he and his wife were available for our big day! We were able to do our engagement shoot and get to know them a little better before the actual wedding. As for the day of, they were there right on time as planned. They scoped out the venue and had many ideas ready for when it was time to take action. It was an outdoor June wedding in Florida, need I say more, he nor Derica ever complained of the heat but kept us all smiling and looking good for photos. There was even a bit of rain, rather than worrying...he made the best of it and we used the umbrellas not only for function but props for what I believe will be a great photo of the bridal party!! Again they are a great pair working together and I would recommend them to anyone! Thank you both again for making our big day so special. Can't wait to see the pics!

Brian and Derica provided awesome pictures from both our engagement session and our wedding day. They turned out amazing and we're absolutely thrilled with them. The pictures truly tell a story of our special day and we will cherish them forever. I personally appreciate them capturing the small details that went into the wedding…it took a lot of effort so it was certainly important to remember those ‘little’ things. They’re a great team!

Brian and his wife Derica are amazing. My husband and I are not fans of getting our pictures taken. However working with them made it easier for us to break out of our shell. They have great personalities and are a pleasure to work with. Our wedding day was fun and stress free when it came to getting our pictures taken. If you are looking for professional photographers Brian & Derica are the best.

I did a lot of searching online for a photographer. I was looking for a certain "style" but I couldn't put what it was in words. When I came across Brian Idocks, i immediately loved his work. I wasn't aware of the customary way of selecting a photographer. I was told that most people prefer at least a phone interview before booking, but I didn't give it a second thought, I was ready to book! We met first for the engagement session that Brian and Derica highly recommends before the big event. Yes, it was a good idea. Not only were the engagement photos breathtaking, but it made the whole wedding day picture process a smooth one. We knew exactly what was expected of us, and there was no awkwardness with strangers walking into your dressing room. Brian and Derica had a great sense of humor and were a pleasure to work with. I was beyond ecstatic when the beautiful photos came back and gave us the opportunity to relive our fairytale. I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a photographer to capture the events of your big day!

If we could give 10 stars we would! We got married on 1/10/15 and could not be happier with Brian and Dericka! Not only are they just awesome people, but the pictures.....well these pictures are worth a thousand words and more! We are beyond happy with the quality, details, creativity and the list could go on. Brian and Dericka were easy to work with, always responded to any questions I had within the day and always made sure we were on the same page before our engagement pictures and our wedding. Not only are the pictures to die for they got them back to me faster than anything I have ever seen and let me say there was no detail missed, or picture quality jeopardized. They truly are talented beyond words and my husband and I are so thrilled we happened to stumble across them and went with our gut to use them.

I can't say enough about how beautiful our photos are!! Both the engagement session and our wedding photos. Their prices are great, especially considering the usual going rate. I highly recommend their services! I only wish that we were able to get a few of the pics that did not come out well. What are you going to do?

Brian and Derica are AWESOME! Because I didn't live in Florida, we didn't actually get to meet them until they showed up on our wedding day. Which we were nervous about but felt right at ease as soon as we met them. Their personalities are great and made it such a fun experience. And I can't say enough about how beautiful the photos turned out...Some of the pictures looked like they are straight out of a magazine. We were really impressed! They are awesome photographers and you'll love working with them!
