It was one of those engagement sessions that I didn’t want to end.  It was well thought of from the smallest detail to the wardrobe and even the hair and make up.  These make a whole lot of difference.  It gives substance to the photos and it helps build a story.

The inspiration of this shoot is Vintage Travel, divided in two sessions.  It was impossible to make everything happen in just one day.  We went all the way to Bogo and Medellien to look for train tracks.  We brought with us impossible props ––  old and heavy typewriter, huge wooden dresser, vintage suitcases, old film cameras, chairs, and a lot more.

A big THANK YOU and a grand WELCOME to our resident stylist/photographer — Angelo Kangleon.   A round of applause please.


What I ❤  about this shoot:

Well prepared.
Sunset and the light was my friend that day.
Laughter.  Lots of it.
Old things. Vintage love.
Location outside Cebu city.  Something new.
We had dinner in the middle of the plaza – chicken that tasted so yum and puso (hanging rice). A first, for me!
The couple – Rey + Sheryl. They were so game.  Lights. Camera. Action.
Paul drove.  We slept. Peace.
