I made Ogie Alcasid gatecrash the wedding we’re shooting last night at Silang, Cavite! 🙂 We agreed that he’ll sing one of his singles from his latest album which is the song that I’ll be using for the same day edit video as well.

So watch and enjoy our little surprise last night for Ryan​ and Noureen​!

Thank you Sir Jayson​ and the rest of the Star Music Adprom Team for the trust and for agreeing to the plan! Thank you Ms. Ayie​, Sir Troy​ and the rest of Imbitado Events Team for the great help! And of course, not to forget my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to Sir Ogie Alcasid for the incomparable happiness you have given not only to our couple, but also to everyone present in last night’s celebration of love!

Dreams do come true! Indeed, this is what our lovely couple, Mike and Yums, have proven on this memorable day.

Our bride dreamt of a perfect and beautiful wedding just like in the movies and fairy tales. Even her Lola Lulu wished for this for her dear granddaughter. Tonight, let us enjoy Mike and Yum’s Same Day Edit Video as we celebrate dreams!

In the passage of time, we create memories. Some we forget, a few we will never realize its value. But some, we will hold on to and remember for the rest of our days for these are the seconds we give our lives a deeper meaning. I bet Clinton remembers vividly the first time he laid eyes on Patricia. From then on, the seconds, the minutes and the hours didn’t matter anymore. He found his life and that is all that matters.

The FIRST LOOK is always one for the books. It is not commonly practiced here in the Philippines but some of our couples have it on their wedding day. It is during this time when the bride and the groom, all made up and in their wedding garb, away from their wedding guests, meet and see each other for the first time before heading to the ceremony.

To see it right in front of our eyes is a defining moment in our lives as visual storytellers. Why? We see the reason why we hold on to our cameras and shoot weddings. All of the emotions and reactions of the couple during that moment, precious and raw in its form, deserve to be captured and translated to a story to be told, time and again. A story that will last ad infinitum. One that when you see, over and over again, will transport you back to that first time you saw what living and loving is all about. To be able to share to you a story like that, defines us and our love for our craft.

We definitely felt how much Ryle and Carolin love each other during their first look. To see and feel it was breathtaking. Let me show you why.

It was a case of willpower losing over emotions. Christian did try to stop his teardrops when he saw his bride, Jeandy. But it was pointless. I mean, how do you suppress your happiness when you see your true love walk down the aisle towards you? Emotions can’t be hidden, Christian. 🙂
