NAIA Airport Engagement Shoot| Mike and Chini

June 30th, 2014

Chini is a good friend of mine. Whenever I visit New York, one of my favorite places to hang-out, she would always take the time to meet and take me around the city. I even did a lifestyle shoot of Chini because she loves being in front of the camera. You can view it here: […]

During my last visit to New York a couple of years ago, she mentioned that she met a guy, which was Mike. I thought, by the way Chini talked about Mike, that she was serious about their relationship. She introduced me to Mike and I felt that he might be the one that Chini will end up marrying. After a year from my visit to New York, I eventually received a facebook message from Chini that she was engaged to Mike. I knew it! and I was really happy for both of them.

I’ll never get tired of saying this, but it is always an honor to shoot your friends. So when Chini asked me to shoot her engagement session, I of course said yes. We basically had 2 locations: Chini’s lovely house and NAIA airport where they had a family business. I’ll stop there and let you enjoy these photos. Congratulations Mike and Chini! who got married last saturday.
