Tying the [Pretzel] Knot

You are going to see a wedding that is as quirky as the title suggests. We think we have never featured a union as entertainingly odd as Jude and Grace’s, and we are grateful to share it with you.

This coming together was set in the inviting beach of South Palms Resort in Panglao, Bohol, and it happened during the morning. You can see then the lights from the sun strikingly hit the powder-like shore of the town. It is no doubt why these moments were captured beautifully. We bet the photographer team, Quirky Creatives, was glad about taking photos as the sun started to peek in. We know how the natural light is every photographer’s best friend. Also, the team lived up to what their name implies. The concept is uniquely fun and seems like a breath of fresh air. The graphics used for some of the photos were spot on, and it is amusing and cool to take note of. We can see how this couple—just like the stuffed toys—had a good time posing and playing with the lens.

There is no other team that can pull off something dramatic like today’s feature than Metrophoto. We have already featured this team and their works for more than a couple times, and they are still able to keep us on the edge. The team knows how to have concepts with depth and story; concepts that are unambiguous and daring. And here’s another entry that proves these statements.

The concept was a clear-cut. It is a festival-themed pre-wedding shoot for Wed and Melissa, who both gamely posed in the camera. This was an ambitious project for the team and for the couple as they braved the oceans of people dancing and celebrating the Masskara Festival in Bacolod. (This is where our jaws dropped.) The couple happily stood out among the colorful and sequenced outfits worn by the dancers. It also seems like the smiles from the masks helped a lot. The photos are nothing short of striking and could even pass as a tourism campaign for this humble province. Hats off to you guys!
