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.

Greetings! It looks like a better weather this week in Manila. To start things off this week, I’m sharing a preview of Adrian and Abby’s beach engagement shoot at Costa Pacifica resort in Aurora, Baler. Although it was raining last week in Manila, the weather was sunny in Baler and we had lots of fun during their shoot. It was also my first time to work with stylist Aira Franco and make-up artist Boombee Bartolome who both did a great job and was fun company to be with.

Hyds love the sunrise and I aways reminds me of her, too bad she was not able to come with me on this shoot but she had to take care of Zooey, our daughter, who had fever due to her teething. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hello there! Finally, a full blog post. To kick things of with our rebirth to blogging. Here’s a recent beach wedding that’s close to our hearts. Hyds and I always find boracay a special place to enjoy and visit. We love the beach! and shooting a wedding is shooting heaven for us.

Mai-Mai is a friend of mine from Singles for Christ. I got to know more of her when I visited New York a couple of times hung-out with her. During our last talk in New York, she told me she was in a relationship with Billy. Although I never met Billy till we did their engagement shoot in Manila. I sort of knew then, from what Mai-Mai told me, that these two are destined to get married. I guess when you’ve been in the wedding business for sometime, one becomes more keen in sensing matters of the heart.

When Mai-Mai messaged me that she wanted Hyds and me to shoot their wedding, we were really excited to shoot them, all the more that Boracay is dear to our hearts. I’ll let the pictures do the story-telling…
