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 yes, they definitely are old enough to get married, they just have exceptional genes. Lol.
This shoot was quite the adventure and we couldn’t have asked for better people to do it with. Gery Penaso did their hair and Laura’s makeup. It took the five of us an hour and a half on a bangka (outrigger canoe) in choppy waters to get to our first island. It felt like a theme park ride. Jungle Log Jam comes to mind, or Splash Mountain if you’re fancy. Everyone was completely drenched by the time we got there, and I have to say that I was having the time of my life. It was hilarious, and quite fun. I love the water. Next to being with family, I am happiest by the sea. With the longer two-hour ride back for lunch, not a single soul was dry that morning. It made for a challenging shoot day, but thanks to showers, a good schedule, and everyone being such great sports, nothing we couldn’t take in stride.
There’s simply no mistaking how madly in love these two are with each other. Looking forward to shooting their Manila wedding next month!
