This is one of the many stunning wedding photographs of Sherwin & Jane held in Sofitel's The Spiral. I've seen lots of wedding photographs done at the spiral and I want to create something special for the couple & maximized the potential of this place so I used this 21-foot sculpture located beside the spiral staircase and include the wedding couple to complete frame. The ‘Rhythmic Movements’ sculpture was made by national artist, Eduardo Castrillo, a man’s tribute to nature by using bronze sheets & tubes to simulate a developing plant.
As I showed this photograph to the groom, he mentioned that this photograph got their money's worth after paying a huge amount just to have a chance to shoot in hotel's premises.
Allow me to share the colorful red & golden hues Ting Hun Engagement Party of Efren & Grace held in Gloria Maris, Greenhills.

What is Ting Hun? In Chinese, this symbolizes that both families formally accepts their new son/daughter-in-law into the family. In Filipino traditions, it’s called “The Pamamanhikan”. Chinese Engagements involve a lot of rituals before the groom meets the bride.Traditionally, a Ting Hun is done at the girl's residence but most couples and families nowadays opt to just do this at the restaurant to make it more convenient for both sides.

Every time we covered a wedding I noticed that every bride is always radiantly stunning beautiful during their wedding day. Even they are lack of sleep or having a really bad cold.

In all of my photo coverage, maybe weddings or events I always want to challenge myself to come up with something special like "Turning the Ordinary into Extraordinary" images for my clients.
I'm a true believer that there's always a better frame in capturing photographs all you need is to find it. Even though you look like a fool to others when they see you shooting. Ha ha ha ha.

When you're looking for wedding shoes, there's a few things to consider. Most importantly you need to make sure you can make it through the day without wanting to change into your trainers. So set yourself a budget and start the search.
Look to your bridal magazines for inspiration and decide on the type of wedding shoe you want. Consider whether you want open toe shoes, sling backs or a very low heel; the choice is yours.
Think about the fabric of your wedding dress and look for shoes that match. If you find a plain pair of shoes you could always customise them to blend with your theme. What's more, you don't have to worry about owning a pair of white shoes that you'll never wear again. After the wedding some brides choose to dye their shoes to make them more wearable.
Make sure that when you're trying on bridal shoes comfort is your number one priority. Ask yourself whether you will make it through a busy day of walking up the aisle, standing for photos and dancing into the night. Keep this in mind when put on any pair and also thing about what heel height is comfortable for you. If you're uncomfortable with high heels, don't try something new for your big day; choose a pair of shoes that will be kind to your feet instead.
If you're a non-traditional bride you could choose shoes that wouldn't normally be considered appropriate for a wedding. If your theme is more subtle you could choose a pair of shoes that match the colours in some way. If you are having trouble finding something that matches exactly, then why not buy some ribbon and attach it to the front of very plain shoes?
Even if you're the only one who may see them, make your wedding shoes special anyway. = )
