2010 has seen the return of all things old: from cars to hairpieces, laces, books, and all sorts of trunks and lamps and turntables, the Philippine wedding industry has celebrated the extraordinary beauty of the past by employing all these in every which way possible: engagement sessions & dinner receptions. Name it, we've used it.

As an avid heritage conservation fan, it delights us to see more and more couples appreciating the past by having their e-sessions done in locations that are historical. The location used for this shoot, however, is new. Conceptualized and built by New San Jose Builders President Jose Azucar, the area is made up of 30 assorted houses uprooted from their original locations and rebuilt in this land by the sea. Although the whole concept has put a wedge between two conservation schools of thought (whether to keep or not to keep these houses in their original locations), Las Casas has definitely been a gift to photographers and couples who enjoy heritage locations for engagement shoots.

Here's sharing the beautiful e-session of Noel & Kate as seen through the lens of one of the Philippines' best, Oly Ruiz, of Metrophoto. :-)

Thank you very much, Ms. Kate, for allowing us to share these awesome photographs! See the rest of the set here.
