Vikki & Octavian : Engaged

The Getty. A first date. A proposal. A vow to spend a lifetime together.
That’s their story…up to this point. Vikki and Octavian are young and in love with lots of life to live. They are passionate about the Lord and even more so about each other. A few days ago, we wandered around the mind-blowing, and apparently, romantic, Getty Museum. Surrounded by beautiful breezes, breathtaking views, amazing architecture and loads of life, they shared moments with me. They laughed, kissed, held hands, cuddled…it was a dream. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you two in October! xo

This is my absolute favorite shot. I want one for me. There was a concert at the Getty while we were there. So we had to find uncrowded corners. I had lots of fun with shadows. The wind loved Vikki’s Anthropologie dress. It made for some fun photos.  We headed to UCLA for some quick shots before the sun disappeared. That place has a special place in my heart. Always.
