Jeff and Lisa Photography » Wedding Photographers, Metro Manila, Philippines

  • Hi! We are Jeff and Lisa Llarena, wedding photographers, husband and wife, and the best of friends. On any given day, our home smells like freshly brewed coffee, books, and most likely, bacon. We share it with a 5 year old adventurer named Corwin, way too many books, never enough records, and whichever plants Lisa hasn’t killed yet. We love traveling, and even better, the feeling of coming home.
