Yearly Archives: 2010

The most extraordinary thing about my job is the opportunity to see places I never imagined I’d go to on a normal day or have any interest in going. Being based in Cebu, It’s a blast when I get to shoot on location! Ada booked me a year before her wedding day after seeing me […]

Engagement shoots are always a blast to do since not only are they fun and a joy to shoot but also they help me know more about the couple…how they met, their hopes, dreams and some of their fears. As a result, the wedding day is easier since by the time we see each other […]

Coming up with concepts for an e – session is always a two-way street for me. It doesn’t always work that the photographer alone comes up with ideas for it since a particular concept won’t work if the couple isn’t comfortable with it.

One of the perks of shooting weddings is that you get to travel to different places and meet a lot of new and interesting people. Some of them you get to really know and bond with over time.  I had the chance to shoot RJ and Vanessa last year and let me just say that […]

Its 2010! 2009 was a blast. As some of you may not know, last year was a turning point for me in photography. I quit my  job in Dubai (with the worldwide crisis going on) last May to pursue my dream of being my own man and going back to shoot weddings in the Philippines. […]
