I've been watching some films from Tim Burton for the last 3 days, and yes I'm a big fan, you've seen some of my work which showcase happy bright moods for engagements and wedding.Last night I was toss and turning in bed,imprinted images screaming out loud, seems like it wanted to come out, so today I tried to interpret this images using the camera,and this what came close....
Since Not all the family member were able to join our last photo shoot, My sister sweetly approached me if I can still do a photoshoot for her family with a touch of editorial flare,how can I say no to my own sister who were every minute messaging me to do the shoot?
on the day...
We're not late...
oh the clouds are covering the sun!
Who said dark green was a neutral color?!
where's my hair spray?
put it back here!
I'm losing light.
where's your ring?!
it's so cloudy.
Who has a clip?
If you smile, I'll buy you a toy !
Please go give her a hug.
nose to nose! and slowly please!
smile please!should I do a wacky face first?
Smile.. LAB YOU
Cris and Noel met back in 2002, from a short smile and stare, to glaring giggles-Noel was a next door neighbor.
We will get marry that day!Cris told me, she was my twin sister-wore matching clothes and sleep in the same room till we were teens-it was a huge adjustment for me when they finally moved together ages ago, But whenever I see this happy family makes me say-shes all fine! got a bonus of having an adorable nephew Nico!
He turned to her, and he found home, where he can be himself, a haven and the best place on earth is in her arms, that's how Aj feels when he is with Kam, that's why no doubt he will do anything just to make her feel extra special, even that means giving lots of surprises.
Aj and Kam met in college , shared magical moments and eventually separated ways for 3 years, even after they went their separate ways. Their hearts remained intertwined. When their paths crossed later in life, they both knew their love was destined from the start. They've watched each other pursue their dreams and supported each other through every bend and twist life sometimes throws. Best yet, they've given each other the space to lay their own roots, yet somehow keep their branches tightly locked.During the speech, AJ placed his hand on top of Kam's and they later toasted to true love and the promise of forever.
Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Kam and AJ hosted a lovely wedding at Transfiguration church in Antipolo. The day was stunning their wedding was a blend of families, cultures, and memories, resulting in a day of complete perfection.
Aj and Kam, I know you're having fun right now and the last thing you'll be doing is getting a sneak peak of photos, please know I'm sending lots of love. I adore you both through and through. You emanate God. No, literally, you shine with a beauty that is so pure, caring, and kind that I know it can only stem from a divine love. Thank you for allowing me to document your love . It was an honor of the highest regard. You lead beautiful lives full of chance, candor, and endless possibilities of loving in your own way. It's beautiful to see and I'm honored to experience the percolation of your togetherness. Much Love and Appreciation... mFox
I truly adore the details of this dress.
Kam donned a stunning wedding dress!
The wedding ceremony was at the Transfiguration of Christ Parish, also offers a lot of space for photographers to move around.
One of my favorite moments during a wedding ceremony: when the Mpther gives away her daughter. It was incredibly moving..
The reception was hosted at Mission hills clubhouse in Antipolo, With the creativity of a talented team managed by Casius Ramirez of Entertainment street, they put up lovely details and designs.
The wedding reception was set up for a traditional party ...many thanks to Entertainment street by Casius Ramirez Enchanted Florist for creating such a beautiful wedding reception,And Many thanks to MYC catering services for the sumptuous food that was served!
I'll end with this photo because this is how Kam and AJ spent the entire evening: cuddling, reveling, and smiling in each others' arms.

Sometime last month, I made the commitment to send gifts to clients...after all, without them, I'm nothing. Oh, sure, I say thanks and express gratitude, but there's something special about receiving something tangible. I'm the type of person who prefers to give gifts than receive them, so whenever the time comes to brainstorm a new idea, I get overly excited.
Last Engagement session, though I was not really hired as a main photographer, and played as a second shooter which was really awesome! Falling in love with people you work with is enough reason to send your appreciation, specially when they gave you their pure trust.
Of course the gift couldn't come from me without a note...
Cant wait to the next project, and meet amazing people, and yes send out gifts!
The year was 2005 when he saw her walking around their school, by then he already knew there's something special about her, Aj was struck by her beauty, they were both in college sharing one organization, from small chit-chat to extra minutes of sharing different thoughts, till they both can finished each others words and share sweet nothings..
Love notes faded when they separated ways, seasons of loneliness over shadowed AJ, But after 3 years, destiny brought them back together,That was 9 years ago when they first met. In few days they will be Tying the Knot,truly soul-mate and true love does exist. I was honored to join AJ and Kam in Taytay and Antipolo for their engagement photos and I couldn't have been happier working with such an amazing couple!
that day of the shoot,Aj requested if I can document it , that's if they were preparing for the wedding, not just an ordinary engagement day, sort of a dry run for their up coming wedding, I love it when couple shares their creativity and ideas.
their love for music, coffee and sunnies are just few of the things they both enjoy having.
When they are away from each other, they both look intimidating, but whenever they're together, thier inner kid takes control.
I would like to thank Aj and Kam for giving me a chance to join them on this fun day, The experience was honest and raw and pure.And it moved me.
Also thanks to their main photographer Kimpee for letting me sneak, and play as a second shooter.
I'm SO excited to document Aj and Kam's wedding this weekend...if it was anything like their engagement session, we're destined for a good time!
Many thanks to the creative team,who showered their love, support and assistance to make this engagement session an ease- Cherry,Mark,cassie,rejim and Pao La.
