PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: SMART SHOT STUDIO

Image
Thanks to Ms. Mhaki Garcia-Lacap, got these raw shots of their wedding by Smart Shot Studio. I have nothing against formal portraits, really. They're nice, elegant and reflect the solemnity of the wedding tradition. The thing is, it's definitely not for everyone. There are couples who are too young for formal portraits and want it classic but a bit playful, yet there are those who prefer it hard-core classic. I personally like photographers who enjoy seeing the small details, and capturing these for everyone to appreciate. Details, after all, make a wedding (and oh please, don't do infrared too much! Not everything looks good in IR!). Indeed, each to his own.

This is the exact reason why we don't recommend any photographer in particular. The style of a photographer must appeal to you, and by no means should you get a photographer just because they give freebies or they're affordable (You're going to look at your photographs the rest of your lives, are you kiddi…

PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: HENRY VILLANUEVA

Every now and then, you come across a photographer who sees more than the others - the laughter, the reassuring touch, the tears. It's not just a record of events, it's a record of feelings: that of amusement, blessing, and happiness, respectively. Henry Villanueva's work is all that and more.

For contemporary photographs that pack a wallop and still have heart and soul, Henry surely stands out.

PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: ARIEL JAVELOSA

To edit or not to edit, that is the question. Present-day couples are torn between two schools of photography: one that likes it natural, and one that resorts to editing to enhance results. There is no right or wrong ways of capturing moments; one only needs the eye for it. The important thing is that it is done tastefully, in a manner that is fun and memorable, and in ways where the resulting pictures turn out to be something worth looking at the all the rest of your lives.

PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: BRYAN YAP

I had the most delightful surprise last December 13. Assisting Nelwin Uy was no other than Bryan Yap of the unforgettable Melo-Karel wedding! I remember us chatting up a storm during a break in the shoot. He's such a fun guy to work with. :-)





(Yes, the guy in white is me!) See the rest of the photos here:

Thanks, sir Bryan, for (always) generously sharing your work with us. :-)

Hated the fact that my fat ass is in a lot of frames, ha ha! This is what happens when your venue Operations Manager-cum-florist-stylist also becomes your pseudo-coordinator. Oh God, when will this curse ever end? Ha ha ha!

See the video here. Loved the song ( who sang it?)

PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: ATTY. RAYMOND FORTUN

Image
I wonder what gives a better insight into the human condition: lawyering or photography? That's one question for Atty. Raymond Fortun to answer. From a high-profile lawyer (oh, but who can forget him?) to someone working - quite literally - behind the scenes, Atty. Fortun has grown by leaps and bounds to becoming one of the Philippine wedding industry's favorite photographers. Vatel Manila is proud to have its work photographed by W@W's Supplier of the Year for 2009. :-)

PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS: J. LUCAS REYES

Image
Few photographers are gifted with the eye for form & substance, and J. Lucas Reyes is one of those whose body of work truly inspires. His photographs draw mixed emotions - awe, reverence, & wonder among them. His tagline of simplicity + subtlety + style reminds me so much of why we are working in the wedding industry in the first place. To J. Lucas Reyes, salut! Here's hoping to work with you again soon!










See more here. Thank you, J. Lucas, for allowing us to post your lovely photographs! :-)
