|Virge + Shayne||01 Jun 2015|
It was a lovely morning wedding situated in the heart of Manila. Manila Hotel is very special to the couple so it was only fitting that they held their preparations and reception there. If Manila Hotel is not iconic enough, Manila Cathedral completes it. Virge and Shayne were also very pleasant to work with, waking up extra early for their special day was worth it. We love Manila and we love Virge and Shayne.
|Aaron + Roxanne||23 May 2015|
We are all attached to our phones, and Aaron and Roxanne’s wedding story proves just that. :) But it was beautiful. This Aussie couple, their fun-loving relatives and friends all did something too cute not to record.
|Dante + Princess||20 May 2015|
Our first Jehovah’s Witness wedding was swift and very intimate. There were only 50 guests, and the reception program mostly revolved around speeches and prayers. We appreciate this new experience, it was a breath of fresh air from the usual. There’s always something new to learn, even after 15 years into wedding photography. :)
|John + Jaye||05 May 2015|
To say the least, this was a fun wedding. And it’s evident seeing how happy John and Jaye looked. We were blessed with the most beautiful formation of white clouds, along with a whole posse of animated friends and relatives. Enjoy this wedding story.
|Lino + Puring||29 Apr 2015|
This particular wedding story is very different. It was a celebration of 50 years of togetherness. Puring is my dad’s sister. Tita Puring and Tito Lino renewed their vows with their closest relatives and friends. I was lucky to be a part of it. Actually, you’ll see me very involved- resulting in a lot of cameo appearances. It was a genuine celebration, cool and casual with a denim theme. Tito Lino and Tita Puring make everlasting love seem so simple.
|Arrie + Nabila||15 Apr 2015|
Our first Muslim wedding had us fixated on the colorful clothes, dancing, beautiful sound of kulintang and Muslim rituals. One fact: There is no “You may now kiss the bride” part. :) But it was a different experience for us.
|Eldrin + Cherry||08 Apr 2015|
Eldrin and Cherry’s wedding day was extra long, and to think it’s a traditional Chinese wedding where there’s broken time. Broken time means there’s a long break between the ceremony and the reception. What happened differently, though, is that their wedding day was one of those days when Pope Francis was in Manila. Reception was held in Sofitel and the roads leading there were closed. It was the longest ride from Santuario de San Jose to Sofitel, where we found ourselves as far as Paranaque City just to work around roadblocks. Good thing Eldrin and Cherry remained calm and picture perfect. All our efforts were rewarded by a magnificent sunset that was somehow delayed, yet well worth the wait.
|Ricky + Pearl||21 Mar 2015|
The beauty of having a pre-wedding shoot is that it serves as great practice so that couples are more comfortable with the camera on their wedding day. Pearl let her hair down, literally and figuratively, and shined along her super smiley groom, Ricky. She looked immaculate and her confidence really made all the difference in the world. Brides, please take note! :)
|Edison + Grace||18 Mar 2015|
If you find yourself confused why Grace looks like one of the bridal entourage, it’s because she has a twin sister. Enjoy this morning wedding. :)
|Sherwin + Leinee||11 Mar 2015|
This wedding story reminds me of a Scrubs episode where Turk and Carla had their wedding dinner rehearsal. While sharing their vows, Turk said, “When I look into your eyes, I see the future. I see kids, I see minivans…you name it, I see it. The weird thing is, though, as long as I see your smile, none of that stuff scares me.”
For Sherwin and Leinee, their precious little one, Shawn, came before their wedding and it gave them extra charm. It is also a wonderful experience to have your kid enjoy your special day with you.
