“…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.

Summer Love

With the heat and temperature rising, summer is indeed here. It is the season we bring our shades, sunblock, and swimwear out to the beach. But aside from beach festivities, we know summer is also a season for beach wedding.

Beach has already become a favorite background for weddings especially for some couples who want to be with the nature. With the tranquility and harmonious sound from the ocean crashing to and colliding with the glistening sand, the beach is a perfect venue. And with the Philippines’ hundreds of both popular and untouched paradises, beach wedding will always be on the books.

Just ask our featured couple today, Rudy and Harriet, whose beach wedding has sailed smoothly: a happy couple who chose to walk down the aisle of fine sand. And what other better shores are in our country than and but to celebrate it in Boracay Island.

We commend Von Jovi Jover and his team for navigating a good sail. Ahoy o’captain! Thank you for these photos.
