REAL WEDDING: { HAMZA & ANNA } BORACAY

-- 
Boracay never fails to surprise and delight and today, we're sharing with you a beautiful beach wedding! Hamza and Anna are Swedish nationals of Moroccan descent. They got engaged in Boracay years before while backpacking through Asia. They finally returned to the island this year to say their 'I Do's' on the beach and wow, check out their stunning pictures! Bride Anna stood out in her Pronovias gown, and everything was just laid back, simple, and beautiful. Truly an inspiration! Please enjoy this set! ^_^

ENGAGEMENT: { POOYONG & AIRA } BUKIDNON

-- 
More than an engagement session, this was really a homecoming. When I found out during the course of the wedding preps that the Groom, Pooyong, was a student of my Mom, I immediately thought that a prenup shoot in this place would be the best thing to do (read my emotional writeup HERE) - and really, where else would you see such a unique landscape but here? Such stunning vista! 
-
It's only recently that shoots have been allowed and for decades, this place has been off-limits to 'outsiders' (meaning, those who do not work for the company). I was actually surprised that we were able to do some things that I vividly recall would not have been possible many years ago like walk on the golf course or even talk loudly. I guess we were lucky that it was Summer and the place was practically empty. Still, we're thankful to have been given the chance to be here and appreciate once more the beauty that is Cawayanon & its environs. Enjoy this set! ^_^

REAL WEDDING: { JONARD & CATHY }

--  While scanning our post lists, we accidentally discovered that this wedding from 2013 was still on Draft mode, which is really odd...
