Anton and Ana’s Tagaytay Wedding

We first met Anton and Ana over Skype, as they were planning their Tagaytay wedding all the way from New York. I remember being smitten with Ana immediately, because really, that smile. I don’t even need to say more. Watching people and getting a feel for them and what makes them tick is second nature to me and Jeff now, but Anton was a little difficult to read. He was quiet the entire time, and cooking. I would later find out on the day of the wedding that he’s a chef. Lovely howView full post »

Carlo and Patricia’s Wedding

Jeff and I remember Carlo and Patricia’s wedding as the elegant intimate wedding with hundreds of guests. I know that sounds strange, using the word “intimate” for a large wedding, but going through the photos, these were people who genuinely loved them and celebrated with them. So maybe intimate has nothing to do with the number, but with how much you are loved by the people around you, and they just happen to have many who do. I adore Patricia. I light up every time I seeView full post »

Ralph and Paula’s Wedding

You might know Ralph and Paula from their Sydney engagement shoot. If you haven’t seen that one yet, you should! I shared the story of how they met there, and Sydney is so beautiful it hurts. We had the best time running around the city with them, and Jeff and I remain madly in love with it because of these two. I’ve always loved Paula’s taste in, well, everything. I could have spent the entire day just swooning and shooting their thoughtfully curated wedding details. HowView full post »

Hands

I have this fascination with how people hold hands that I picked up from Jeff. We used to write each other letters during our senior year of high school, and he once told me you know you’ve found the one by how your hands fit together. And while I now think that he mostly just said that so he could hold my hand (haha), it kind of stuck around in my head. It’s a small and innocent gesture, but you can read so much from it. I like it best when they find each other and intertwine withView full post »

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 »
