The former boss wasn’t into Lomography, actually he has told me not to go into Lomography. He’s been photographing for more than 25 years already, and I can understand why he does not like the “Don’t think, just shoot” rule.

Since I can’t do Lomo when he’s around, I just shoot secretly behind his back :)

The wedding gown is one of the most precious things in a wedding, it is a must to shoot them. Because brides only get to wear them once (or maybe twice, the other one is during fitting), we are required to shoot gowns at different angles, use them as foreground and as background.

I love doing MX shots of the gowns and hotel room paintings

After the dressing of the bride and groom, we do some portraits of the bride alone and the groom alone. Here in the Philippines, we have a tradition where in the bride and groom would not see each other until the bride walks down the aisle. I don’t actually know the reason behind this, but my guess is it is a part of patience, excitement and surprise.

We also photograph the couple before they arrive at the reception.

They usually rent vintage and expensive cars for bridal cars.

Some of the most memorable stories in two people’s wedding happen in, you guess it right, the church. And of course, inside the church

But, the most dramatic part of a wedding is always the bridal march. I have to admit, I get teary eyed every time I see a bride walk down the aisle.

Most often, the reception areas are big, but you’ll still feel the intimacy and closeness of their relatives and friends.

Don’t forget to shoot the cakes!

The traditions are very much alive during wedding receptions.
The cake cutting:

The doves:

And other traditions like throwing of confetti/rice, bouquet and garter, wine toast and the first dance:

And of course the kiss
