Hues of Love

November 10, 2014

Here is a new colorful feature that will take your usual Monday blues away. This is Anthony and Marj’s fun and playful engagement shoot by Paopao Sanchez.

The shoot is literally and figuratively a playful one as they use the children’s playground at a park as the backdrop. With this setting, they look like kids gleefully running around, but at one point, they look like teenagers who adorably pester each other. But overall, we know they are two individuals who are much in love with each other.

Our smiles are from ear to ear while browsing these photos. Thanks Paopao Sanchez for yet another great shoot. We feel how colorful the couple’s relationship is. As one of the signboards says, “I am happy to be stuck with you.” Brace yourselves to get stuck with these stills.

BridalSesh 2014: An Eclectic Collaboration

November 5, 2014

This collaboration is gotta be one of the best things you would see this year. BridalSesh showcases the invaluable works of some of the wedding artists we consider on top of their games.

Jazel Madel-Sy parades three of her exquisite creations. This artist has already mastered the use of sheer and lace in coral gowns. And we won’t complain. The back of the first gown is tastefully revealing. You will be amazed by the craftsmanship of the details in the modified A-line. The second gown, meanwhile, is fairly a one shoulder lace dress. The blusher deafeningly speaks more and gives elegance to it. While the third gown is an empire cut in mermaid silhouette. This is certainly an all-embracing one that every bride-to-be wants to wear. So if you are looking for a gown that has a touch of centuries-gone-by grace while keeping it utterly current, then Jazel Madel-Sy is the one.

Toni Aviles Make Up Artistry chooses strong shades of lipsticks, giving class to this shoot. That face of Nashka Tonified can already launch a thousand ships, but with the magic hands of this team, that face can now launch a million and so ships. Who would have thought that dark red lipstick gives more drama and sexier vibe?

This Parisian editorial shoot would not have been this great if not because of the mad skills of Ruffa and Mike. This shoot really embodies what a Parisian theme should look like—classic and fabulous. It seems like this duo has been doing editorial shots for a long time now, but this is just the first time they are spearheading such.  Way to go Ruffa and Mike. Those black and white portraits are piercing and cut though your soul. The astounding design set by Moki Gray against Jardin de Miramar is maximized and equally stand out in these photos.

You will feel like that this is your dream team; a dream team that will make your dream wedding come to life. See the collaboration below and tell us we are right.
