Fun and impromptu portrait shoot with Cousin Leo & Monica at Anaheim Train Station, Los Angeles

This is a result of having a photographer-cousin, upon arriving in LA, Leo arranged for a quick hour of photo session with his girlfriend, Monica. Nothing fancy, Leo just wanted simple portraits with Monica taken professionally, plus maybe get some cool photos he can post in his instagram.

They brought me to this place, Anaheim train station, which was lit! We were happy with the portraits but even more happier with the in-between photos wherein we captured their fun moments. Do checkout our images below, enjoy!

Our recent pre-wedding in Mt. Pinatubo using an Iphone 8

And so we got this new phone a few weeks back and the idea of shooting an entire pre-wedding on an Iphone 8 have crossed our mind along with the big question, can we pull it off?

The answer, we definitely did!

It was such a weird feeling having directing couple poses while holding just only a phone, but then we find it as a challenge. Surprisingly the new Iphone 8 kicks ass with it’s dynamic range and it’s new bokeh features. The results were amazing. The resolution was also solid, we can print the photos on our usual 10×15 prints without any loss. The image HDRs and the optical stabilization rocks too. The mobile phone cameras are truly catching up with the professional cameras. We were pretty amazed with how the color vibrance came out too. Spectacular.

Enough praises already with the new Iphone 8. Please also do checkout Amiel and Ann Marie’s Mount Pinatubo pre-wedding using our trusted Canon dslr’s here.

Big thanks to our couple and shout outs to the entire Merry Me team for the opportunity.

Kind Words by Vincent and Pam

We are a proud and satisfied Jayson and Jo Anne Arquiza Photography client! Being an overseas, Singapore based couple it was difficult for us to select and book our photographer of choice. We did weeks of research, watching endless slideshows and comparing styles of different photographers. Upon hearing of the Bridal Caravan SG 2016 last August, we were so happy to find that one of the best recommended photographers through a common friend was coming to Singapore! We approached Jayson and Jo Anne’s booth and quickly felt at ease with them. We clicked and felt their sincerity, humility and zero ego exactly everything we value. They did not hard sell themselves but joyfully showcased their sample photos and techniques in capturing wonderful moments of the ‘big day’. We didn’t hesitate booking them and was very excited to work with them, they even helped us secure our videographers. 😉

Nearing our big day, we kept in touch with them and confirmed some details. They were always online and responded to our every questions. Come our wedding day, they were one of those who came early and greeted us before the busy day started. Out of all our suppliers, we can say that Jayson and Jo Anne truly exceeded our expectations and went out of their way to make sure this was a memorable day for everyone. We kept hearing from our guests how they were amused with their energy and lively way of taking pictures, “ngiting tagumpay!” “Happy’ng happy!!” They were organized, patient, always with a smile and truly professionals. It started drizzling after the ceremony and I was starting to get worried that we wont do a pictorial in front of the church, but Jayson brilliantly escorted us to the back of the church where we only realized is another beautiful location for the photos! They didnt stop there, they maximized the time and asked if we can still continue despite the rain, of course we said Yes! We were so happy that they are sharing this special occasion with us, they gave their best judgement out of every shot, location and situation. They did not let us down.

We are a proud and satisfied client. I will sure be a repeat customer because I can trust that we will get high quality of photos. Trust us when we say that you will never regret booking them for your special event. Please take time at looking at our photos and of other clients and you will see why they are the best choice. Thanks Jayson and Jo Anne, we are beyond words to say how we appreciate the both of you. Godbless!
