Paolo and Kelloggs’ Tagaytay Wedding

We first met these two at Kelloggs’ cousin’s wedding, which we also shot. We haven’t met them before because they booked us online, so it was a pleasant surprise. They came up to>>

James and Angelica’s Engagement Shoot

Early morning light, coffee, and a bookstore. Jeff and I are geeks and bibliophiles, so getting to run around an empty bookstore again was a treat. It’s been a couple of years since we last>>
