Ben and Kate’s Batanes Wedding

This wedding is the perfect example of a wedding being so much more than the weather and the place, no matter how dreadful or breathtaking. Ben and Kate’s wedding was amazing because of Ben and Kate. The day before their wedding, the plane carrying their suppliers and some relatives and>>

Arthur and Tina’s Engagement Shoot — Tokyo, Japan

Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment. — Ellis Peters / We usually shoot in Japan twice a year, during spring and autumn. It never gets old. No matter how many times you’ve seen cherry blossoms in full bloom before, it takes your breath away each time. It’s>>

Jovie and Pia’s Wedding

We shot their engagement session, their Ting Hun, and their wedding. There is a stillness to Jovie and Pia’s love that draws us in again and again. It’s a quiet kind of love, without drama or hype. It’s solid and steady, secure and unwavering in its truth. I will always carry a>>

April 2017 Featured Work

It never gets old, seeing our work featured in magazines. I usually share them on Instagram and our Facebook page when I can, but I’ll blog this one too for a change. For the month of April, we’re on two publications — Lifestyle Asia and Wedding Essentials. We’ve been occasionally>>

Popo and Jolene’s Baguio Wedding

I watched their on-site slideshow play on the big LED screen at the end of the reception program, from the very back of the ballroom. Even from behind the couple, I saw them laugh and cry through it all, and I was thankful for the dark because I had the silliest, widest grin on my face, had>>

Jason and Mia’s Tagaytay Wedding

Mia is easily one of our chillest brides to date. Chill is even an understatement. As far as she was concerned, they just wanted to get married. She left most of the little details in the trusty hands of her planner, Jojit Dy of The 3rd Party. The story of how she picked her gorgeous wedding dress>>

Daniel and Jasmin’s Coron Wedding

Manila has been scorching hot lately, and we’re all dreaming of the beach, so today, we’re sharing Daniel and Jasmin’s intimate destination wedding at Two Seasons Coron. The island was the perfect backdrop for these two as they exchanged their vows. The sunlight danced on the>>

Michael and Stephanie’s Wedding

Jeff and I were in a coffee shop yesterday, waiting for a client meeting, when I went through his laptop to look for a recent on-site slideshow to share. I clicked on Michael and Stephanie’s first for some reason, and burst into tears halfway through. So this goes on the blog today. I think>>

Jeff and Jasmine’s Engagement Shoot — Taipei, Taiwan

Jeff and I love laid-back engagement shoots, when it’s pared down to the essentials. We love shooting outdoors, and in existing spaces with natural light that people pass through and occupy on a regular basis. There’s character and history and a realness to these places that resonate>>

Neil and Finina’s Bataan Wedding

We’re kicking off 2017 on the blog with this gorgeous destination wedding. It was the first time we’ve ever had a turtle hatchling release at one. It was at sunset, during cocktails, and it was magical. But it rained hard shortly after that, and naturally, everyone ran indoors.>>

Douglas and Laura’s Engagement Shoot — Coron, Palawan

Jeff met Doug and Laura a few months ago, but it was my first time to meet them at the airport, when we were all lining up for check-in for our Busuanga flight. Perhaps it was the early hour and my lack of caffeine, but I could have sworn I was looking at teenagers! I’m happy to say that>>

Mon and Ruby’s Engagement Shoot — Tokyo, Japan

“The leaves are all falling, and they’re falling like they’re falling in love with the ground.” ― Andrea Gibson / Jeff and I had a fantastic time running around Tokyo with Mon and Ruby. The mood was chill and the conversation easy, and with the autumn leaves as background, we>>

Ryan and Sophie’s Wedding

There’s a chill, laid-back vibe to Ryan and Sophie that we appreciated. They didn’t obsess about the little details. They just wanted to get married and celebrate, and I loved that. I always tell our couples to let go of all their worries on the day and just enjoy themselves and be>>

Fiercely

I rarely write about marriage, or us as a couple. It happens maybe once every couple of years, when the urge bubbles up and I can’t contain myself. I write to and about our son often. Corwin is 4 years old and won’t remember most of these things yet, so I feel this urgent need to put it down on>>

Daniel and Gerlinde’s Iloilo Wedding

Daniel and Gerlinde’s wedding was our second in Iloilo this year, a place we always associate with good food and gentle people. This wedding was held outside of the city proper, in the small town of Tigbauan, at Gerlinde’s family’s beach resort. So much space to run around in!>>

Gravities

Jeff and I always teach that every artist needs to set aside time for personal projects. Even when it’s busy, even when you’re swamped, you owe it to yourself to do this, creating something for nobody else but yourself. This is what sustains you when the work gets hard, and there will>>
