                         “…I break things because I am shaking and I am shaking because you are not with me and you are not with me because we are just learning to touch each other through the spaces between us. It is violent that we cannot touch each other, yet. It’s a war crime…”

This is an excerpt from a beautiful written poem by Arza Tabassum called, “These wrists, these eyes, these praying hands.”  It is so hauntingly beautiful it hurts. The lines that make us want to swallow our throats to keep the waters of our eyes fall and stream down our cheeks. It is a creation about two souls loving yet longing for a touch that they just hold each other “through the spaces between us”.

This speaks true to most couples who are in long distance relationships. No matter how technology makes the world even smaller, the fact that the two people loving each other are in different parts of the globe, they are still far away from each other. The spaces between them seem to be wider. This results, then, for many to think that this kind of relationships never last. However, here is a couple who defy this notion.

Jr and Jan, who were separately stationed in two hemispheres, have mustered the courage to fill in the spaces between them to soar high together forever. With a great amount of patience, understanding, and sustained communication from Los Angeles to the Philippines, this couple has done a tough job to keep their relationship stronger. To show this story to us, it is fitting that their engagement shoot was done in an airbase. The airplanes simply signify their situation before when they were not physically together, living in different time zones. It could also be a sign that their relationship will fly high with flying colors. With the retro-ish touch, this shoot is a great one. Thank you, Bob and Zab Photography, for being the pilot and maneuvering this sound flight.

Seasons of Love

April 11, 2015

“You just call out my name. And you know wherever I am. I’ll come running to see you again. Winter, spring, summer or fall. All you have to do is call. And I’ll be there. You’ve got a friend.”

We can liken this Carole King’s recognized song from the different stages of relationship, moving from season to season. From spring when the feelings start to blossom just like flowers in the hollow ocean of green, to summer when the love starts to peak as the sun is at its prime, to autumn when everything seems to start to be cold and slide down the hill, to winter when every road to being okay seems to be impassable. This is the truest test in every relationship: how to weather any season and to stick with each other in highest highs and in lowest lows. This song, however, mainly tackles friendship which we can also equate to the so-called foundation of any relationship. It says that best relationship is with your best friend—and we could not agree more—which leads us then to liken this to the stills you are about to see.

These are from Nice Print Photography, teasing every one with the photos from the celebrity couple, John and Isabel. This couple, as we all know, recently joined the bandwagon of celebrities getting engaged and tying the knot, and here are their prenuptial photos. This couple seemed like they travelled and scoured the world in achieving this very ambitious shoot. And it paid off. Beautifully. What we are envious about the most is their romantic embarkation to love. They are like best friends, adorably pestering each other around while professing their feelings for each other. The innocence yet pureness of love are showing. For sure, this couple will stand by each other no matter what as the seasons pass by.

We cannot thank Nice Print Photography enough for sharing these photos. If we were about to choose which sets of pictures is the best, then we would pick the ones in the winter season. No, we think those photos in the summer season are better. But we feel the autumn season has gorgeous outtakes, either. And the stills in the spring are breathtaking. Can we not choose, then?
