Ai-Chau and Huy's Long Beach Wedding

We met Ai-Chau and Huy a few weeks before their wedding day. Rewind on the booking process, we met them over the phone and after sometime during the conversation, they decided to book us! Ai-Chau and Huy are both in the medical field. I know it had been a while since their wedding, and again, we had been lagging on our blog, but, we would like to share our favorite photos of these couple. 

We fell in love with this couple on their wedding day. Just the warmth on the conversations plus their super cool friends. It felt like family, the moment we stepped in their hotel room taking photos of everyone. It is such an amazing feeling when people come together to celebrate their loved ones special occasion, traveling from so far away just to be a part of their a special day.

Thank you so much again guys for making us a part of your big day, we love how your photos turned out and it is such a pleasure to be able to capture your beautiful moments together. Good luck on all your future endeavors and again... cheers!

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.
