Undeniably love is in the details. 10,000 strong when Mommy Alice of Event Stylist Dave Sandoval celebrated her birthday. True to it’s form – classic, elegant and timeless. The birthday bash was probably one of the most glamorous and grandest celebrations we have covered. We heart the entire black and white setting. We love how Mommy Alice was all-in with the photo shoot, the feels of a bride, really. We love Villa Milagros. We love the party. More than the images, it was how we were embraced as family. Good times. Cheers to you Dave and Tita Alice, happy birthday!

Almost 4-hour drive from Manila, we finally set foot on Zambawood (Luxury Beach Resort) in San Narciso, Zambales. The place was as beautiful, quiet, and cozy as advertised(googled). For us, it was the perfect venue for a pre-wedding shoot. Yes, yes, yes we might be the nth photographer who shot a prenup at Zambawood, but hey it was our first time, hence the excitement! It was also our first time to have worked with Cebu-based prenup stylist, Geof Lagria, who by the way was loudly creative and a true master of his craft. We genuinely love working with him. It was a fun collaboration. The end result was nothing less than spectacular. We were given good spots, good lighting, awesome poses, an always-game couple, and a golden hour to cap off our shoot. It was certainly one for the books! Enjoy the photos, Arvin and Cherry!

Let us start the year by sharing snapshots of one of our most anticipated weddings for 2016! We’ve met MJ (and Tin) when Joanne and I volunteered to take photos for Diksyunaryo ATBP. MJ, also volunteer, is the frontman of this wicked-loud-and-poetic band, Guerilla Tactics. He is your typical underground rakista, OPM-loving, environmentalist, and a super cool dude. He organizes benefit gigs for reaching out to Mangyan kids of Sablayan, Mindoro – his hometown. Most of you might generously give a smile when you see his photos below, and the reality of him getting hitched (very) soon. We love talking to MJ, and his vision of KKK – Ka-taas-taasan Ka-galang-galangan Kasalan ng Bayan. Anyway, we, along with 4:30 Films are excited for your big day. See you soon, brother!
