Simon + Guia – Nacpan Beach Engagement

This Nacpan engagement shoot was where we work and and have fun with the whole gang. Yes the “whole gang”, because it wasn’t just the couple but the lot of friends who were with us doing this.
We came in rather late – we travelled all the way from Puerto Princesa and we got lost. There is almost no cellphone connection connection there and we actually didn’t know When we made it to the Jack’s place, where we are supposed to lodge – it is already dark. Their electricity is limited to certain hours only. Still, we somehow made BBQs that was already sand coated by the time we decided to eat it. We were tired, sleepy yet happy and full.

Some love stories starts with one “hello”, so sing with me — because the lyrics certainly rings a bell for this couple.

If you’re not afraid
Of what love brings
Then endings are beginnings
Of beautiful things
It’s a chance you’ll take
It’s a chance you’ll win
If someone’s gonna find you
First you gotta let them in

Bianca & Dave – El Nido Elopement

Again, this El Nido Elopement didn’t disappoint. It was simple, intimate and romantic.

The couple, Bianca and Dave were both musically gifted. They are from Australia and before they came to Palawan, I got this soft beautiful haunting  song that I sometimes played along with 2000++ songs I have accumulated over the years from friends and people on the wedding industry. It turned out to be Bianca’s voice. Simply inspiring…

When words fail me, I hope these images will tell about the love story this amazing couple had shared with us on this tiny island of Matinloc in El Nido, Palawan.

 

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.
