Hello! My name is Victor Villodre and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in San Diego, California. I serve all of California as well as anywhere else in the US and overseas. I am honored to be featured here on Basic Invite’s blog.
I was born and raised in the South of Brazil where we are known for our fun-loving spirit, friendly attitude and love for parties of all sorts. Even more than a great party, we love connecting with one another and we love to love. When I began photographing weddings it became a natural passion for me as they combine all of these elements that resonate so much with me.
It is a privilege and an honor for me to be asked to document a wedding. Consequently, it is important to me that I capture the moments as they are happening while making everyone feel at ease. Bringing out the best in people is one of my strong suits. This comes in handy for many shots but my main goal is setting the scene to let the couple be themselves so I can capture their feelings for each other.
I would describe my style as clean and classic with a photojournalistic method. I use a lot of natural lighting to capture many shots but also enjoy playing with flash photography to enhance a shot and add a bit of drama.
I have many weddings and engagement shoots that I could consider “favorites” but Leandra and Albert’s wedding stands out among them. Leandra and Albert started their day at the La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad. A beautiful place full of amazing places to photograph. The resort was very busy, with a total of three weddings happening that same day.

Putting together a wedding album for them was just as much fun as shooting the wedding itself, tying together such a beautiful day.
The end result was that awesome phone call I love to receive... they were in love with the photos! Knowing that my clients feel comfortable with me and that moment when they call me to tell me how much they love their photos is truly what I work for.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post. Thanks again to Basic Invite for the opportunity to be featured on their blog.
I am available for weddings in San Diego as well as anywhere else in the US and overseas.
