Vikki & Octavian : Married

Passion. Vikki and Octavian are full of passion. They are passionate about life, faith, love and most of all, they are passionate about each other. Like, crazy passionate about each other. And they are not afraid to show it. They’re not embarassed to go out on a limb for each other. To move mountains for each other. And the moment you meet them, it’s apparent. And it’s palpable.

From the first time we met, Vikki and Octavian knew what they wanted. Fashion and love and easy. Let’s just say they got that and more. They rocked their wedding day and my camera of course. I had so much fun watching them start their life as husband and wife together. Vikki and Tavi – thanks for bringing me along into your special day. You two are like no other and I’m so excited to watch your love grow. Get a tan for me in Cabo!

Lately, I’ve been choosing a favorite shot of the day, you know, for myself, and this one is definitely it. Nicoleta Apahidean (714.726.3691) did such an amazing job with Vikki’s bouquet. I had the pleasure of working with videographers Aaron & Winston Tao (808.344.4520). They set this shot up of Vikki putting on the finishing touches of her bridal look. I just love how it turned out. These girls were amazing to shoot. So full of life and fun and easy.  A wedding day is long. Especially for kids. And I think it’s adorable. A special thanks to my second shooter, V, for letting me use her macro for this shot. I think I should purchase one for myself now. We went back down to the beach in front of The Montage for for photo fun. I adore all of the photos. ADORE! I’m telling you, fashion! Vikki & Tavi – you two are so fabulous. There’s nothing left to say.
