Shutterfairy Photography » Engagement Wedding Photographer based in Cebu, Philippines


My name is Malou (otherwise known as — Shutterfairy). Some of my favorite people call me Mai, and you can too.  I am Filipina lifestyle, wedding, and portrait photographer based in Cebu City, Philippines, who secretly aspire to be the best version of myself. I am an old soul, stuck in the old era when ladies used to wear corsets, rode horses instead of cars. I split my time between things I love:  photography, being a mom to my three boys — Marcus, Matthieu, and Niño, cycling (Lance Armstrong inspires me), swimming (it gives me the illusion of being a mermaid), yoga (since college), recently diving, and a man named Niño whom I am totally  CRAZY about.

My work has been described as quirky, romantic with a vintage feel, spontaneous, and REAL.  These are my guiding principles.  I enjoy chasing moments. I pay attention to details and everything in between human interactions.  I strive for stories and emotions. Real fairytale inspires me. Quite frankly, I believe in fairy tales!  Maybe that’s the reason why I do what I DO.  I want to be part of your story.

This blog is a way of featuring my latest couple + family + children sessions, as well as sharing personal thoughts and stories.  I look forward to creating unique, beautiful photography with you  that will be a window back to your special moments for years to come.  

If you happen to want to know what I’m doing day by day, you can follow me on twitter @shutterfairyph.  Add me on Facebook as shutterfairy.   Follow me in instagram.  You can email me at

Here’s to you!  Live.  Love.  Ever After.

  • julai - Hi Miss Mai. it´s me again.hehehe. Same here, my love for yellow has nothing to do with the President or his mother.:) It´s inborn I guess, hehee kay sukad pa sa bata pako gnahan naman ko ug yellow. Masuko ko sa ahong Mama basta palitan ko ug things nga di yellow or way yellow bisan gamay.hehhe.ReplyCancel
