Callum + Josie – El Nido (Nacpan) Beach Wedding

El Nido as always never failed us. We’ve shot many times in Nacpan but usually not a wedding. More often, couples stay away from doing a Nacpan wedding not because its not pretty enough, it is beautiful but due to some inconvenience. There is limited electricity and transportation maybe an issue. Originally, they planned for a small wedding but if you have lots of family and friends – and many would want to travel all the way from the land down under (Australia) to be part of their love story, why not make it more the merrier. If you go beyond that and appreciate its rawness, its perfect imperfections, its natural beauty and even its people – you know it is the place to be.

They came a few months back to check on Nacpan, El Nido and has decided that is IT. The place. The dream.

The day came and we drove to Nacpan. The roads has never improve much but we’re lucky because its dry season otherwise the road will be very difficult. The place was buzzing with excitement when we got there – everyone seems to be chilling and yet are busy too. We saw how they set up the reception area, how the pig is roasted and the wind blows so much that day. The wedding unfolded and we shot thru it.

We shot how it happened naturally – it is raw, it is beautiful, its crazy, it is “them”.

This is their story.

Johanna + Sam – Elopement in El Nido

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.
