Such a sassy engagement shoot. Markie and Krislynne both are undeniably playful and gorgeous. They were fun despite the hot humid weather that day and truly Palawan didn’t disappoint.
We went to Rancho Mitra, the Robinsons Mall here in Palawan and Kamia bay. Those were three different locations — like a mountain, a shopping center and the beach. It’s not surprising we finish quite late yet the photos tell how the shoot went that day.
I can’t quite explain the joy we have to shoot this wedding (even just their prenup) — they are both joyful, easygoing and captivating inside and out. They’re the type that spells the word F-U-N in their personalities. I remember Mike( Mike Guayco Films) asking them ” ang saya lng cguro pag kayo magkasama, nag aaway din ba kayo?” (It must be always fun when you’re together, do you ever fight?) to which they replied with a laugh and poke fun with each other.
It was always nice to be around them and having nice conversations with them about just anything is a blessing I’m super thankful. Did I say the bride loves dogs and even pets Tsu tsu (our studio dog hehe).
Having the opportunity to capture their forever and call that “work” is something I would treasure in my lifetime.
Definitely a warm, happy and unique engagement shoot we have done so far. Set in the greenery and beaches of Palawan are two bears falling inlove. We basically just went around and snap here and there. One thing I couldn’t forget doing this shoot — anywhere we go, people stare!!! I guess if you see two bear heads walking around, your curiosity will be piqued. So here are some of the not-so-ordinary photos we’ve captured that day.
Wherever ❤ goes, I will follow. Anywhere ❤ goes, I will follow. It’s amazing seeing two people, so diverse yet so inlove. All the way from Tasmania, Johanna and Sam decided to elope at the dreamy El Nido. This was their first time in Palawan and in the country — but it was just one of their stops here in the Philippines. Their trip was both an adventure, a joining of hearts and the honeymoon all in one. I thought the boatman was joking when he told me it is a heart shaped island — but it is! Don’t everyone wish to start their “forever” with one big adventure? I do ^^ and yeah, this is also a surprise to both their friends and family.
There are poets and the musicians and the endless dramas and sonnets written about Paris. There’s the Louvre, the Grand Palais, the Sainte-Chapelle to name a few of the sights you’d see in Paris, but out of the endless list — The Eiffel tower stands proud since the 1800s.
The city of Love inspires many and i have no doubt the debut we have here is worth swooning!
Come and have a little taste of Paris in Palawan 😉

The wedding was set in the beautiful Island of Modessa in Roxas, Palawan.
It was a super sunny day on that remote island with their family and closest friends. A truly good day to get married.
Jake the all around groom was like the planner, florist, stylist and coordinator rolled into one. He must be the busiest on that day in the island. He had it all planned out until — they realized that the marriage license was left on the mainland. The officiating minister can’t marry them – yet. The bride were not informed and the preparations continued. Finally, the license came and the wedding pushed through before it totally got too dark.
The bride’s entrance is still etch in my memories ’til now. All the guests and even the Pastor were looking for her — when she came riding in a blue boat from the other side of the island. Her backdrop were the beautiful sunrays as the sun sets for yet another morning.
They had the most amazing sunset wedding by the beach. A wedding worth to be shared.
Cheers to their love story.
More than a decade of loving plus more..
