Big Four Bridge | Falls of the Ohio | Engagement

Brooke and Brian love fast cars! And as you’ll see in this blog, their cars are definitely fast and boy are they sweet! Even if you’re not a car person you’ll still appreciate these two beauties. Without going into great detail, Brian experienced a significant loss in his life, leaving him raising two precious kiddos by himself. And with the help of an amazing God, Brooke was brought into Brian’s life through a mutual love and passion for muscle cars.

Big Four Bridge

Brooke and Brian decided to have their engagement session at the Big Four Bridge located in Jeffersonville, IN. And with that, Brian wanted to have his two boys take part in this special occasion as well. We walked up the bridge in order to capture some really cute shots of the four of them together with the Louisville skyline in the background. We also captured some really cute moments of the four of them just looking out into the Ohio River. And we couldn’t have asked for better weather; the day was absolutely amazing! The sun was working its way down to the horizon and the clouds in the sky were just puffy enough to allow for some great contrast to the scenery.

Once we were finished with the Big Four Bridge, we made our way over to the entrance of The Falls of the Ohio. This part of the engagement session had a focus on just Brooke and Brian, and of course their cars!!! Once again, we captured some really fantastic shots of the two of them with the Louisville skyline in the background. Not only that, but capturing the love and adoration these two have for one another is what truly made this session so special. Knowing their story and how they came together and seeing what the future holds for them is why I love what I do!

The future…

I can’t wait for their wedding for the simple fact that Brooke and Brain will become husband and wife, along with Brooke becoming mommy in her own special way to two beautiful kids. The future is bright! And with God walking with them every step of the way, I know they will be able to withstand anything that comes their way – standing tall and strong together.


Hi, I’m Dereck!  For me, my “why” has always been people focused. My goal in life is to make a positive impact in the lives of the people I’m around every day. I love the fact that I am blessed to spend my time with soon to be brides and grooms who are about to embark on a lifetime journey of their own. That my friend is a huge honor and blessing! My goal through this process as your Photographer is to impact your life beyond the lens of my camera. I love capturing magical moments that pop-up throughout this process, but I love just as deeply to speak into the lives of people like yourself. I love being able to help you focus on what is truly important during this journey and letting the other non-sensical things take care of themselves.
