Henrik and Ria’s Wedding

Starting 2015 on this blog with Henrik and Ria’s crazy fun wedding. You might remember them from their Hong Kong engagement shoot last year. Been looking forward to this wedding for a long time, and boy, it did not disappoint. Ria is so warm, friendly, and genuinely nice, it’s hard not to love her off the bat. And she is one of the chillest brides we have ever had. Jeff and I have been shooting weddings for six years now. We’ve come a long way from me crying at every singleView full post »

Isabelle

I always say that more than just pretty pictures, I want grit, honesty, and rawness. Photographs that make me look twice, not to marvel at how elaborately they were orchestrated, but because they were real, because I found some measure of stillness in them, and because they moved me. My husband took this portrait the other day, and I can’t get it out of my head. This was Isa hours before her wedding.View full post »

Mong and Mel’s Montecito, Nuvali Wedding

(a.k.a. #melxmong; #freedom; Indie Hipster Wedding of the Year) Mong and Mel have traveled all over the world standing next to each other just like this. Last November 15, they did it in slightly better clothes. Okay, maybe lots fancier. Thousands of weeping female fans on Instagram kind of shows you how well-loved Mong Alcaraz is. There’s something about him that’s so boy-next-door nice guy that charms you right off the bat, and being the guitarist for two of the biggest bandsView full post »

Marc and Alicia’s Wedding

You might know this couple from their awesome Coron, Palawan engagement session. If you do, you’d also know how much we adore these two, so I’ll just go ahead and skip that part and go straight to the part where Alicia is, by far, one of the happiest brides we have ever shot, and for this alone, I will want to hug her every time I see her for the rest of our natural lives. There is nothing in the world like a joyful bride. She’s completely enchanting. And then there’sView full post »

Gabriel and Aileen’s Wedding

It’s odd but familiar, and nothing short of perfect. ♬ Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties, and one day, passed away in his sleep. And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days,View full post »

Karl and Cheryl’s Tagaytay Wedding

It’s impossible to tell the story of Karl and Cheryl’s wedding without saying how much it meant to us to be there. See, back in 2007-2008 when Jeff and I were just starting out, we bought our first DSLRS and lenses from this little camera shop in Greenhills. We were still so young then and could only swing for the barest of equipment. Each purchase meant using most of whatever we had in savings at the time, so we remember each of them well. Last year, without knowing us personallyView full post »
