Where are you from originally? The Philippines.
How long have you been a photographer? Professionally, since 2010.
What other kinds of photography do you like to do? Children.
How would you describe your photography style? natural/candid, artistic, romantic
How do you work on the day? A mixed of posed and candid, but more on the latter. For couple shots, family and friends, and other requested group shots, I usually start with posed ones then hoping to get some candid shots right after (funny reactions, big laughs from the couple and everyone else). I always have printed sample poses that I love handy, for couples who like visuals.
Are there any parts of the day you especially like photographing? I enjoy every part of a wedding especially the ceremony itself and details like the decor, cake, wedding dress etc.
How many images do you normally shoot on a typical 8 hour wedding? 400-600 edited images
How much post production do you do?? What is your style? Clean with a touch of vintage. Muted tones and natural. I also love to convert some photos to B&W.
Do you have a favorite, must-capture moment for every wedding? During the ceremony when the groom kisses the bride and the part when the couple is announced that they are now officially husband and wife.
What’s the most unique photo you’ve ever taken at a wedding? In an engagement session where the couple are both artists. Playing/Throwing colored powder to each other. So colorful, fun, happy and romantic.
What piece of advice would you give brides and grooms to ensure that they get wedding photos they love forever? To make a checklist of photos that they think are important to them (photo with Grandparents, photo at the favourite part of the garden for example), as we tend to forget those little details during the wedding day. When it comes to post-production, I believe it is best not to overdo (Photoshop) effects to fit to what’s popular today (HDR for example) especially to portraits. I’d say less is more - elegant and would fit in forever.
If you weren’t a wedding photographer, what would you be doing? Children's photographer, a painter and a printer
