Jerome and Charmie: Morning After

My cousin, Charmie, got married to Jerome, whom she met a few years ago while working in the Middle East. We were all excited and frantic, even our relatives from afar went home to the Philippines to witness their I do’s in Roxas City, Capiz. We continued with the happiness in Boracay island, where I shot Charmie and Jerome’s post-nup.

It was a combination of trash-the-dress, adventure, and just hanging out kind of photo shoot.

Mark and Kate: Love and Travel

LIZ_7760

A day before their wedding, Mark and Kate spent their day walking, trekking, jumping, running, sitting, lying, rolling (just kidding!), smiling and laughing in the mountains and beaches of Basco, Batanes for their engagement shoot. It was a sunny but breezy day, perfect for a relaxed and adventurous shoot, very casual and nothing formal. It was Mark and Kate’s first time to see the sights of Batanes, and their idea was to tour while we shoot, and just enjoy the view and the moment–a leisure slash work.

Makoy and Gie: Good Friends + Good Food = Love

When their friends heard of their engagement shoot, one of them, a chef, offered to cook and have a small salu-sal0 for the couple and the rest of their friends after the shoot.  I then had the idea to include them in the shoot! Why not have a cook out with their friends for their prenup? And since Makoy and Gie got nothing in common except friends, it totally made sense to let them join and became as props! I was amazed to find out that everyone was excited to join the shoot!

Makoy and Gie have known each other since grade school, but only became a couple in college. We went around a few places in UP LB that are memorable to them, like their ‘tambayan’ and the oblation.  Then off to their friend’s house where everyone was preparing barbecue, drinks, tacos, and the set up of the place. So Makoy and Gie stepped in and helped out. As soon as they got together, everything became so natural and spontaneous. There were a few portraits and a few of their friends, aside from participating, also helped in the shoot that I just had to shoot some behind the scenes. This part was so full of laughter and support. I found this shoot-as-it-happen kind of engagement unique, touching and really personal. Kudos to Makoy and Gie and their friends. Oh, and the food was delicious!

Homey Duo: Rony and Jona

Rony and Jona spend their weekends in each other’s houses, relaxing and constructing Gundam action figures. He assembles, she paints. Rony must be lucky to find a girl who shares the same hobby as his. A rare find. 🙂
