Yesterday is but a dream, Tomorrow’s something yet unseen; This now we have, and that’s enough- Enough to yearn, enough to love. Though yearning were the better way, To never disenchant the day, Yet lover’s live on extra time That in another’s world, they find. ~Patti Masterman

The only thing that might ruin it […]

Johann first met Meyan at a Starbucks coffee shop where she worked. So it would only be natural that they have an engagement session at the place where it all began! A sneak peak at some of the photos from that e-session!     I LOVE STARBUCKS!!!! http://www.vimeo.com/26819580

    Love, Love, Love. Love, Love, Love. Love, Love, Love.     There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done. Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.   Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game. It’s easy.   Nothing you can make that can’t be made. […]

We hoped for a sunny day before the actual shoot since it had been raining for days and we couldn’t postpone anymore.We got tons of sunshine on the day of their e-session!!! I’m pleased to share Joman & Tetet’s e-session!

Available light is A-W-E-S-O-M-E, specially during dusk or dawn. When the sun slowly comes down, the shots become even better, because you get that soft lovely glow of light all around you adding something extra to the pictures specially with nice elements in the background. Here is the second part to Terence & Annie’s e-session!

I had the pleasure of shooting Harvey & Katrina’s engagement session who are both wedding photographers based in Cebu. Don’t they look adorable together? And this time they’re in front […]
