Paolo and Kelloggs’ Tagaytay Wedding

We first met these two at Kelloggs’ cousin’s wedding, which we also shot. We haven’t met them before because they booked us online, so it was a pleasant surprise. They came up to>>

James and Angelica’s Engagement Shoot

Early morning light, coffee, and a bookstore. Jeff and I are geeks and bibliophiles, so getting to run around an empty bookstore again was a treat. It’s been a couple of years since we last>>

Christopher and Heidi’s Amanpulo Wedding

There is a special place in our hearts for Amanpulo. It’s peaceful, serene, and the most beautiful private island resort we know. White sand, incredibly clear turquoise waters, and impeccable>>

Richmond and Elaine’s Tagaytay Wedding

It feels great shooting weddings in families we’ve shot before. There’s history there for us, and familiar faces. It’s like coming back to a book we have loved before, and>>

Atsushi and Monica’s Wedding

These two were set to be married August 2 last year and we were booked to join them since 2013, but Monica had to undergo surgery and the wedding had to be postponed by a year. In a way — and>>

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>>

Love and Stories

“Tell me a story.” During our freshman year in college, we’d often find ourselves lying down on his bedroom floor, listening to his mix tapes. I’d ask him to tell me stories>>

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,>>

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.>>

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>>
