Brianna + Derek

This Auburn, California wedding at The Ridge Golf Course wrapped up my 2017 wedding season and let me tell you – it was one of my favorite weddings to date! Bri and Derek are two of the nicest, most down to earth people ever. They are one of those couples you meet and immediately hit it off with! They are sincere, quick to laugh and so full of love for each other!

I met them initially during their consultation – back even before we took their engagement photos. We sat down for coffee and I liked them both immediately. I knew from the start they are the definition of a LD Couple. I couldn’t wait for their engagement session and sure enough, after their amazing engagement session, I just knew their wedding was going to be incredible too.


First of all, Bri and Derek looked absolutely stunning in their wedding attire. Second, Derek’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time during their first look is the ENTIRE reason why I love first looks so much. Third, these two had the most amazing bridal party surrounding them – talk about a great bunch of people down to have a good time and support two people they obviously all care deeply for. I could go on and on and ON but seriously, this wedding was full of laughter, fun and of course love.

Then there were the amazing vendors this couple hired to make their day go smoothly. I got to work with some of my favorites – including Tahnee from Something Lovely Photography as my second shooter, Marisa with Poema Collective and DJ Alazzawi. The super fun Ready Set Pose photo booth was also there and their wedding cake was from the delicious Divine Desserts bakery in Loomis.
