Los Angeles The Oviatt Wedding Photographer Ugochi + Fabian


If ever I had a secret desire to photograph any wedding, which I’m sure I have many, sign me up for this one please! I would not want to miss it!! Ugochi & Fabian’s wedding was INCREDIBLE!! Oh my gosh, it was a beautiful day from beginning to end and one look at the pictures will have you saying ROYALS!! For starters, I LOVE Oviatt Penthouse, the rooftop scene for me makes for such a unique location. I love it! Every moment was filled with unique traditional Nigerian and Argentinian rituals  starting with the bride and groom changing bridal attire three times. One of my favorites among favorites was the ceremony, it was all DANCING!! No officiant reading from a script, but family tribal leaders parading the family in a presentation to guests while dancing. Yes, pretty UNIQUE for sure!  There was also professional Tango and Nigerian dancers entertaining the guest.  The presentation of the Kola Nut which is very important in their culture as something that bonds them together.  Another of my favorite  was when the groom hides amongst the crowd while the bride goes around the reception searching and dancing and searching for him, very unique, very meaningful and entertaining as well. The crescendo happens after three parade presentations ends with the family elder, the tribal leader, the father of the bride declares them husband and wife.

I had such high expectations for this wedding  and it completely blew my mind and inspired me to remember Life is Worth Celebrating!

    You and your team were sooooo amazing! From your professionalism to your patience to your guidance…you all were GREAT! I have to say my parents were a bit a nervous having a non-Nigerian photographer/videographer take pics of a traditional Nigerian wedding but I must say you surpassed our expectations and did a fantastic job! Thank you so much! I really appreciate your service and expertise.

    Thank you, Amaechi! I love being at the right place at the right time, and your sisters wedding was that for me. On behalf of Tracy and Shaun, thank you also, they had an amazing time being there. We all talked about it afterward, it was such an impressionable night and one we’ll remember for sure. 🙂 ♥♥♥
