Archie + Aiza Engagement Session

Archie was still wooing Aiza when we all first met and became friends. We were just teens back then and part of growing up might be our fond of daydreaming of what would our wedding be like, giggling while fantasizing about that very special day of our lives.

It’s almost 9 years later when Archie finally proposes to Aiza.
Almost 9 years ago and we’re all still good friends.
Almost 9 years after that day, what we were fantasizing, giggling and daydreaming is finally turning into reality!

It is my joy and honor to do their prenup shoot. And just before that, I was really praying hard that it would be a success as it was my first time. I warned them not to expect super creative shots but only simple output.
So I was so ecstatic when Archie, as the more meticulous of the two, flashes his smile of amusement upon checking the raw photos.

Client approved!

Yet please when you rate it, remember that I am only a trying hard and this is my first prenup shoot.

Shoutout to our friends who help us make this #projectchinita possible and a success! Cheers to us guys!

Buhay Probinsya

Lagi akong excited kapag nakakabalik ng probinsya. I spent my whole teenage days sa paglalaro ng habulan hanggang manlimahid, magpatintero sa bakuran with the cousins hanggang madapa-dapa, magtagu-taguan sa ilalim ng buwan hanggang hanapin ng Nanay at mapagalitan.

Alas singko pa lang ng hapon oras na ng saingan. Naniniwala ang mga tao sa barrio na kapag kahoy ang ginamit pang-saing, mas masarap ang kanin. At the same time, nagtitipid lang din talaga sila sa gas bilang malayo-layo ang bilihan. Ihip duon, ihip dito, gatong duon, gatong dito hanggang mangamoy usok. Hmmmm.

Native baboy! Karamihan sa mga alagang baboy sa baryo ay itim. Halos lahat. Kapag may bisita from Manila akala nila kinukulayan lang namin sila. Ano to? Damit lang? Dyinu-jubos!

Ang kamyas sa aming bakuran na kung mamunga ay wagas. Kaso wala syang bunga nung nakauwi ako. Hehe.

Beach Happiness

I still can’t get over of the pure happiness and joy that the waves, the sand, the sea brought me. I felt the in depth peace just staring at the deep blue waters. Made me dream of owning a resort someday to know what was it like to see the shore everyday. Waw. Haha.

Sunset By The Bay

Thankful that I have decided to watch the sunset instead of seeing Ginebra loses Game 5 and ruin my rest day. Haha. It was my first time to witness a full sunset and yes! It was love at first sight! As I look at it, I can’t think of anyone or anything but the Creator alone. I am in awe. I am in love.

Golden Hour. Silhouettes. Friends.
Perfect Saturdate!

As one trying hard photographer, kinilig ako when one of my officemates asked me to be one of the photogs of her daughter’s christening. Considering that she and her partner are photographers! Not trying hard. Hehe

I immediately said yes with full amusement kahit na free. Haha. Pang-dagdag portfolio din!
What excites me is the experience of a first time christening cover. Ang hirap pala ng lights sa simbahan. At maghabol ng mga candids lalo na’t limited lang yung gear ko.

All in all it was fun! Kinarir ko! Next time mas alam ko na ang diskarte sa lights, at ang paghahabol ng candids. Most especially, huwag mahiya magbilang ng malakas na

“Ready po! 1, 2, 3! Beautiful!” 🙂

Love Never Ends

So everyone’s welcoming February with love and of course, lots of bitterness. Hehe
Come on! It’s the time of the year again when one can really examine their heart on what to really feel and do about love.

To love? To be loved? To forgive? To be forgiven?

feb1

Love never ends even your heart got shattered many times.
Love never ends even when you don’t feel like loving again anymore.
Love never ends even when you don’t forgive.
Love never ends. Period.

Spread love to your friends, to your family, and even to strangers.

Love today and everyday!
Don’t let it end for you. ❤
