Early this year, the three of us - me, Marlon of Helium Hearts, and Gizelle of Cuckoo Cloud Concepts - started discussing a possible activity aimed at giving up-and-coming & even seasoned photographers in the Vis-Min areas a chance to shoot a styled editorial during off-peak months. It's not going to be a full-blown photography workshop (no classroom sessions), but shooting tips will be given during the two-day shoot. The group decided on the name, 'Fiel', which is Spanish for 'faithful or 'loyal', with emphasis on being focused on being loyal to someone, to one's craft, or to an ideal. 
Last September 16 to 17, 2019, suppliers and participants came together in Dumaguete City for the first-ever edition of this series. To be honest, the city was chosen because of its very laid-back environs and awe-inspiring locations. We couldn't have chosen a better place for this first activity. 
In today's post, we will be sharing with you Part One of the editorial shoot we did. This is the engagement shoot, to be followed by the pre-wedding and the wedding set to be posted separately. The video by Madworld PH will be posted as well along the way. During the morning of the preps, we were so worried that our models, Yves and Tim, will not jive as this was the first time they'd be working together but oh boy, were we proven wrong! One only one need to check out this set to witness their amazing chemistry, much to the delight of the Fiel crew and participants. Enjoy, loves! ^_^

We haven't blogged a Manila wedding for some time now, but here's a wedding that's definitely a nice return to the city scene. Erik and Kristel's celebration is a classic one, perfect for a modern couple. No fuss, just pure love! Loving their color motif as well (Peach & Blush!) which we think was captured well in this set. Enjoy this post, loves! ^_^
