Derek and Melissa-Bakersfield Wedding Photography, Seven Oaks Country Club

I almost didn't get to shoot this wedding! It was for a very good reason. My son was rushed up to Madera Children's Hospital as he had began to have seizures Thursday afternoon. We didn't expect a quick diagnosis, but luckily we had one by late Friday. He has childhood epilepsy, but is expected to grow out of it in a few years. We were discharged in the nick of time and I rolled into town with just enough time to get dressed. Next to my son's health, whether or not I made this wedding weighed heavily on my mind.

Derek, Melissa, and their families were so understanding, kind and gracious. I am truly flattered that they chose me to capture their big day! Every detail was perfect and the venue was gorgeous! Everything worked out as it should have and lots of prayers were answered for us all!

My Melissa (assistant) and I had a fantastic time!! We hope you enjoy the preview. I had a hard time narrowing down my faves!

Thanks Kiahna! They are gorgeous inside and out! This is one of my fave weddings also! Makes me want to get married again (to the same guy of course)!
