Sieg + Rebecca | Engagement | 1010 Wilshire | DTLA

Two more weeks! Becca and Sieg will be tying the knot on August 13th and we are so excited! We knew about this couple through one of our weddings last year (and if I can give a shout out to Nina, Dom and Franz) and had been in contact with them since. It was incredibly humbling that they had entrusted us not only with their wedding but also with their son's newborn shoot, even before we met. We had so much fun with this photo shoot, driving all over Downtown LA, chasing the sunset from the rooftop, even getting wet at a fountain, these couple did everything! Becca looked stunning with her black gown and Sieg was just a natural. We are so happy for you both and thank you for allowing us to take these photos. We hope that you will treasure this both, forever.

Grant + Elsa l Maternity l Orange County

It's a boy!

Four years ago, we met Grant and Elsa for their engagement shoot. Surely time flies fast, fast forward four years and here we are again, reunited with this beautiful couple, taking Elsa's maternity photos.

In Grant's own words, "it took us three years to have this baby", and it was such a joy, seeing both of them again, still very much in love for each other, as if it was four years ago. It was a very hot sunny day, but both of them were very ready and excited for the shoot. Elsa, glowing, motherhood really looks good on her,did not even complain of the heat. She was so focused and really on a mission. And you can tell, their photos were just beautiful!

To Elsa and Grant, again, thank you for making me part of another milestone in your life. I am so happy for the two of you. I hope that these photos will remind you no matter how long the wait was, it was in the end, so much worth it.

Raul + Rosa | Engagement | Downtown Los Angeles

One more week! On July 9,2016 this lovely couple will finally tie the knot. But before that, let's take a look at their engagement photos.

It was a typical cold-sunny day in Downtown LA when we met Raul and Rosa. Both glammed up and ready for their photo shoot. We had a great time, this couple was nothing but ready, both very poised and natural in the camera, these two were killing it (I know you can tell). After climbing a few couple of very high stares, rooftops and chasing the sunset, I can definitely say, this photo shoot is one worth to remember.

Rosa and Raul, it is my honor and privilege to be a part of your wedding. Thank you for trusting us. And as you look back at these photos years from now, I hope that you would remember, the feelings you had for each other before it all started. For these feelings and emotions, would allow you to choose each other everyday, for the rest of your forever.

Ralph + Jean | Engagement | Downtown Los Angeles & Pasadena

I recently photographed Jean and Ralph at Pasadena's Colorado Bridge and a few places in Downtown Los Angeles. That day was a little bit too cold for Spring, however the couple took it all in and made it a photo shoot to remember!

Jean and Ralph both work at the same IT company from the Philippines. They said their job requires them to be at a specific country every so often as long as the company needs them. They are very lucky to have had the opportunity to work together here in the United States.

Jean knew about us through a former client who had showed her their engagement photo which I shot. During the interview, she did say how she likes our work, and we are just so happy to have met her expectations.

Their wedding is going to be later this June 2016 in the Philippines. I am so excited for these couple!

Back to the present: Jean and Ralph's engagement session! These two are real naturals in front of the camera. Their good looks, fabulous outfit choices, and their genuine love for each other made this photo shoot a breeze!

Here's to many many more years together!

Cisco + Hana | Wedding | Covina Ca

Hana and Cisco's Rustic Backyard Wedding

It was early April of 2016 when Hana and Cisco tied the knot at Hana's brother, Atiyeh's beautiful home in Covina, California. The wedding was made so special with all families and friends from all over the States and oversees flew in just to witness their union. It was very a intimate wedding, as a lot of things you see were made personally by different groups of people, mostly friends and families for the big day.

From everyone's stories, Hana and Cisco met in New York, both of them were 49er's fan (which they said was not very common haha). It was through their love of the game that they fell in love with each other and the rest was history. It is amazing when very close friends tell each others stories about the couple, as everything is so personal and intimate. It is so wonderful how childhood friends grew up together and still remains the best of friends until now, to witness the bond between friends and families so close that you no distance, however far it is, nor lifestyle, however busy it can be can ever separate them.

To Hana and Cisco, you have been blessed with a beautiful family and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, to be a part of your beautiful wedding. Here's to more touchdowns together!

JAYDE

Today I'd like you to meet some very special people: baby Jayde and his older brother Jakob. Our shoot was triumphantly successful and I am incredibly pleased about the shots I was able to capture!

I asked Kristine, Jayde's mom to tell us more about Jayde and this is what she had to say. "Jayde was seven weeks when we did the photo shoot, she was born February 9,2016 at Long Beach Memorial (six weeks before her due date). Because she was doing very well, she only had to spend a week in the NICU (neonatal ICU). Jayde is a very sweet and lovable baby. She spends most of her days sleeping, drinking milk and playing with her older brother Jakob. Jayde loves bath time, listening to instrumentals, snuggles and kisses. We absolutely adore her and cannot wait to see her grow!"

It is really such a delight to see one's baby grow, healthy and strong. From these photos we see how Jakob adores his baby sister. One thing is for certain, Jayde will always have someone to look after her.

Photo shoot for DOLICA

Bolinao, Philippines. We flew from Los Angeles to Manila for 12 hours and drove for 6 more hours to reach this place. It is one of the furthest point of the Philippines where you can experience the West Philippine Sea. Untouched, its beautiful blue beaches is a site itself, during the low tide hours you will be in awe of the wonderful rock formations that the sea would cover up during high tide hours. Need I not to mention that the food here is also just in one word, delicious. Seafood cannot get any fresher, and tuna, wow! what a joy.

This photo shoot is exclusively dedicated to DOLICA, our sponsor for the mono pods and tri-pods that we use during our photo shoots. In collaboration with some of the best talents the Philippines has, thank you for making this happen. We are more than honored to be part of this team and we look forward to many more projects in the future.

The photo shoot was held late morning until early afternoon. The lighting was a little bit of a challenge, as the sun was very harsh and the weather is very hot and humid. Nevertheless, we were able to deliver with the help of everyone. We hope that you enjoy this video and let us know what you think.

Dom + Nina Epic Kauai Wedding

Before August ended, typhoon Ignacio threatened to hit the small island of Kauai. It was the weekend of Nina and Dominic's wedding. Thank God it didn't happen, but due to this typhoon, it created the hottest and most humid weather Kauai ever had. That didn't stop this couple's engagement and wedding. Through the heat, and rain, the fields, double rainbows and almost missed sunset, we made it happen. The photo shoot has only one word, EPIC. From the people who were there helping us, stopping traffic in the middle of the road, shooting while raining, wet because of the waves, you guys were nothing but amazing! To Nina and Dom, congratulations. You are loved! Almost 90 people flew just for your wedding. So much love from family and friends from different countries and states went just to witness your union, even Grandma was there! We are so honored to be a part of it. You have proven that through everything, you will be there for each other. Cheers! To more memories to come, more typhoons to conquer and more double rainbows.

Kiki met Sam on her birthday on August 2012 through a mutual friend. After the party they kept in touch, became friends, and after a few months, Sam asked Kiki to be his girlfriend. Kiki, still surprised, decided to give it a shot. in Kiki's own words, "I wasn’t too sure where things would go. I was happy that we were attached... I was warmed by Sam’s love and enthusiasm. I loved his kindness, caringnes, patience, and sweetness. Sam loves me for who I am, COMPLETELY...he makes sure I'm warm during cold season, and cool during summer. After 10 years of being together, finally, Sam proposed! To Kiki and Sam, congratulations! I am so excited for you both.

              Remember the first time you saw someone you like? When your eyes was just focused to no one but her/him? And your heart started pounding like crazy, your hands getting clammy and all you do is stutter? Yeah, that was how it is for Vic and Jackie on their engagement session. We decided to change things up a little bit for this couple. We have been told that they are very casual and very laid back. So for their engagement session, we visioned it a little bit different than your everyday casual wear. It ended up being very enchanting. To both of you, cheers to all your hard work. I am more than humbled, to be able to photograph your most special day. Though Chicago is a little bit far away, but I hope that California would be closer to home, everytime you come here. Thank you and I can't wait for the big day. To be able to capture those "ahh" moments again.

Ryan + Atria | Engaged | San Juan Capistrano

Knowing that you have met a friend is a blessing in itself, but learning that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone who knows you perfectly is much more. Atria and Ryan had been best of friends, after a while, both of them have realized, there was more to it. From the time we have started shooting, I have realized that Atria is the timid one of the two, but Ryan made her feel very comfortable on camera, telling her the what and what nots just to make her feel at ease, what a guy! The two perfectly complemented each other, to one's weakness, the other one shared his strength. Congratulations to the both of you! It is an honor to be a part of your big day.
