Mong and Mel’s Montecito 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 »

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 »

Jon and Michelle’s Tagaytay Engagement Shoot and Wedding

The moment Jon saw a photo of Michelle, he knew he had to meet her. It’s a long story that involves Friendster (tee hee), a concert in Houston, Texas, and him selling front row tickets just to get her number. It’s true what they say about fortune favoring the bold, yes? Because he got her number, and five years later, he got to marry her. These two are unbelievably charming. Jon was the one who emailed to tell us all about them, and the way he easily shared their story and howView full post »

Ivan and Isabel’s Wedding

So, what do you do when you realize the love of your life is 13,688 kilometers away from you? Simple. You follow her. And if you’re lucky, like Ivan, someday you’ll watch her walk down the aisle to you. Ivan and Isabel tied the knot in an elegant affair at Santuario de San Antonio and The Peninsula Manila. We’re quite familiar with Ivan’s family already, having shot his sister’s wedding just a few months prior. It was so wonderful to see everyone again, and itView full post »
