It’s been over a week already since The Firestarter Workshop, and I’m still at a loss for words. There’s just so much I want to say, I don’t know where to begin. Jeff and I are self-confessed introverts. We’re great at relating with clients because, well, that’s a big part of what we do. But on regular days, we are most comfortable when it’s just us, with our son, or by our respective selves. I can go for days without talking to other people, to beView full post »

Ever After on Firestarter: Chips and Fozzy

It’s been nothing short of life-changing for us, and I will carry it with me forever. The feedback from the participants has been beyond our wildest hopes and expectations, and honestly, it’s been quite overwhelming. I want to keep all their emails, texts, tweets, and Facebook status updates and messagesView full post »

The Pursuit of Dreams and Following Your Bliss

Jeff and I have been promoting The Firestarter Workshop on our Facebook page, and having a blast while we’re at it. It’s been fun going through our old work. Haven’t seen a lot of them in years. Anyway, I posted one of our favorite photos, the one that got included in Junebug Weddings’ Best of the Best 2010, and Nelwin Uy left a comment on it today and made me cry for the second time in this lifetime. Here’s one of the many stories we were planning on sharing atView full post »

The Firestarter Workshop

Jeff and I have been considering holding a workshop for about a year now, and last week, everything fell into place, starting with a few texts to Dylan of Vatel Manila and Facebook messages with Veluz. There may or may not have been shrieking involved on my part, I cannot confirm this. Haha. And with a few more messages, we had our workshop dream team assembled. The shoot portion will be made possible by some of our favorite people in the wedding industry: Veluz, Vatel Manila, Chichi Sotomil,View full post »
