In a world and time where you really have to fight for your right, Erica and Evelyn's wedding is such a breather for us. Unknown to many, we have family members back in the Philippines who are proud members of the LGBTQ group. This is the reason why we could not be more honored to participate in their wedding. We felt so much sincerity when they said their vows to one another. At some point, our vision became blurry as we try to hold back our tears. We truly share their happiness as they finally found their RIDE or DIE.
This wedding was packed with emotion: anxiety, tears of joy, laughter and of course, some crazy great dancing. While I am still finishing the rest of their wedding pictures, I am excited to share to you their wedding day highlight. :)
If there is one word to best describe Sabrina and Chris, the most fitting adjective is the word "down to earth." We swear that this couple is one of the most chill client we ever had. Usually when we do save the date video, we give our clients instructions what they need to do. That was not the case for these two. They seemed to be natural, they do not need coaching. It was like the beach was their playground. When they smile, their eyes are also smiling. That is when you know when a smile is natural and not forced.
We spent a good three hour shooting their engagement session at the beach. Too bad though that there were security officers on the day we had the shoot which prevented us from capturing aerial footage of the beach's beautiful landscape. Also, there are times when waves got crazier and so we had to stop. Fortunately, they brought few outfits which allowed them to have various looks. We truly enjoyed shooting their save the date video. :)
Bianca and Edgar have been together for long time. They have their shares of ups and downs and they managed to stay together because they have faith in each other. They proved that their love for each other is bigger and stronger than any possible obstacle they may come across.
They had a beautiful traditional Catholic wedding at St. Dominic Savio in Bellflower. This was followed by their elegant weddingr eception at the La Mirada Gold course. There were overflowing emotions on this day: tears of joy, excitement and genuine happiness for these two. And with that note, we would like to end this post with their wedding video highlight.
We met TO and Jen more than a year before their wedding. At the time they booked us, we only had 3 video to showcase but it didn't prevent them from booking us. Right off the bat, we felt the connection. We have established trust and rapport. When booking a vendor and when accepting a client, the established connection is something very important for us.
Fastforward to April 2017. We met Jen and T.O again for their save the date video shoot. It drizzled on this day but neither stopped us nor dampen our mood. Jen and TO were all prepared with their outift and with the one prop which we find seriously meaningful- a plastic rose. During the early stage of their relationship, Jen gave TO a bunch of flowers with one plastic rose and told him that when the last flower dies, that is the time he will stop loving him. Isn't that the sweetest?!? :)
If there is one thing to describe how their wedding turned out, the word PERFECT is the first thing that came to our mind. From the dress/suit, hair and make up and reception details, everything just flowed smoothly. We really had a great time capturing their wedding. And with that, we are so proud to share their wedding day highlight. Enjoy!
