    Simple, Spontaneous And Stunning Beach Engagement Shoot In Mariveles, Bataan

    While it’s fair to say that engagement shoots are quite subjective – some are eager to do it, others aren’t – this Filipino couple’s sheer joy at their experience (and each other) is clear to see. Even though they were but two subjects on a sandy plane, they managed to infuse so much life into this simplistic shoot at sunny Sisiman Lighthouse in Mariveles, Bataan. Even better, they managed to keep the cost low too. “While we’ve seen other couples spend a lot on their engagement shoots, we didn’t even have a stylist or any props. When we created our moodboard, we just wanted something light and not too dramatic,…

    A Timeless Blush On Cream Wedding Portraits

    You don’t have to look too hard to find the ideal wedding palette. For something evergreen, elegant and easy on the eyes, blush on cream with touches of nature creates a sense of openness and charm that is sure to please. And really, it’s much easier to enjoy your big day when you have such a beautiful backdrop, don’t you think? Cotton, the bridal couple’s pup, was the true star here, setting a playful tone and warming everybody up for the photoshoot. Many thanks to Helium Hearts by Marlon Capuyan for this awesome album!

    Tropical Inspired Styled Shoot

    Thinking of ways to celebrate your love in the tropics? Here’s an idea. We were absolutely refreshed by this tropical inspired wedding styled shoot at Movenpick Resort Cebu, a sublime tropical paradise in the Philippines. The exuberant clash of teals, yellows, oranges, reds and earthy tones created a rich and exotic feel that was fun, inviting and classy all at the same time! Thanks Marlon Capuyan for this set.

    Swimming With Whale Sharks In The Philippines

    These shots blew us away! For their bridal portraits, these newlyweds took it one step further with Mother Nature by including her magnificent creatures. Swimming with whale sharks in Oslob, sun-kissed and in love, and with the azure waters in the background – imagine that. Plus there was a touch of old school glam in the form of an old church that was dramatic and mysterious at the same time. Many thanks to Oly of Metrophoto for these amazing photos!

    Elegant Black and White With A Hint Of Champagne

    Keeping things modern yet classic, this couple went with the timelessly elegant colours of black, white and champagne. With the background colour palette in place, fresh white flowers and leafy greens, crisp white tablecloths and décor punctuated with dreamy fairy lights created the perfect setup for celebrating their new union with family and friends. We especially love the exposed beams of the church, which added a touch of grandeur. Many thanks to Toto Villaruel for capturing such beautiful moments and snapshots!

    A Modern Rustic Beach Wedding at Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa

    Keeping the colours neutral and textures minimal was the initial plan for this couple as they didn’t want anything outrageous – and they were pleasantly surprised when everything came together so well. From the nautical navy colours and taupe rope textures to the gilded accents and lush green tablescape, everything was finished with a touch of elegance. We especially love the wedding logo on the small boat, which was subtle yet special. Thanks to Mayad Studios for capturing these beautiful wedding photos.

Grace: “My dream wedding gift was for our wedding to be blogged about. Every little detail in our planning resulted in unique and memorable moments shared with family and friends. We had a destination wedding and we were very happy to see our friends and family from abroad attend our ceremony and fill the entire chapel. And, on the day of our wedding, our love story was reminisced by our officiant or priest, which our guests mostly enjoyed. “We both love to travel, nature,…
