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.

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