A Stunning Styled Shoot At Opal 28 Featuring The Sweetest Couple & The Cutest Alpacas
How adorable is this styled shoot at Opal 28 in Portland? The couple, the design, the alpacas- could it get any better?! The couple, Natalia and Codrut, first met courtesy of a Facebook friend request, and one month later, Natalia made the journey to Oregon to meet him. The two didn't hit it off immediately, and Natalia was taken aback when after the second date, Codrut told her that they should "grow old together." It wasn't until their third date in Olympia, (now one of their favorite road trip stops), that they fell for each other.
"We ended up getting married a year later, and now here we are two years after that. Seemingly nothing in common, we came from vastly different backgrounds, religions and cultures. Now we are dealing with the responsibilities of running and loving a family of six. We are happily married, and just like he said the day after I met him...We are growing old together, and I wouldn't have it any other way," says Natalia.
There's nothing we love more than a good love story!
From photographer Viktoriya Bogdanova:
"I will admit it is hard to put into words all that this styled shoot truly means to me. Everything came together so beautifully, the couple, the flowers, the aplacas...Yes I said alpacas.
The styled shoot turned out to be so much more than just a styled shoot. My lovely models never had a change to have wedding portraits or photos taken, so it was incredible to see them interact with each other almost like it was their wedding day all over again.
The photos from this styled shoot not only became a way for me to showcase the work of all the vendors, it also gave the couple photos that they can cherish for years to come."
