An Engagement Session on Steriods
November 25, 2009
Part two of today’s love for The Philippines comes in the form of these stunning images sent by
Jeffroger Kho. Arthur & Sheilan are one seriously cool couple and I am nuts about that purple dress!
Jeffroger described this session as
‘an engagement session on steriods’ and I certainly have to agree. It’s not everyday a photographer shoots a couple in a spooky, abandoned house that looks like it belongs on an Asian horror movie set or on a windswept beach standing in a box and wrapped in clingfilm! These shots seriously wouldn’t look out of place in Vogue and I am smitten.
Thanks to Jeffroger for thinking of me and knowing how much I’d love these when he sent them over!

‘Til Death Do Us Party Wedding Shoot: Angelo & Rin
July 22, 2011
"Angelo and I were super lucky to have design/photography duo Everywhere We Shoot on board to do our prenup photography," bride-to-be Rin writes. "These guys are friends who frequent the same gigs, art spaces, and thrift shops that we go to. Their philosophy has always been to keep doing and creating, not for money, but just because they love what they do. And knowing that we were on a budget-DIY-wedding, they agreed to do a pro bono engagement shoot for us in a heartbeat. I was also blessed to have a former schoolmate slash band groupie of mine, Kitty Caragay, do my make-up."
High Fashion Farm Engagement

Honestly? I'm not going to pretend that I really understand this shoot... but for some reason I just really love it. It must be the weird juxtaposition between designer handbags, shoes on a roof, giant bunnies and bondage... and hell, I'm not adverse to a bit of randomness!

No-one does engagement shoots like photographers from The Philippines... and Gem and Jay-R's shoot by WeDoItForLove is no exception!I love this for it's super creative and totally over-exaggerated concept.
Gothic Glam – Engagements
January 11, 2010
I have a little two part-er for you right now. Omar & Junela gothic engagement and Rock n Roll wedding were both so awesome I had to share them together - first up the ridiculously inspiring engagements. The editing is big, brash and in your face, but I think it really works with the gothic theme of this session. I am in actual LOVE!
Thanks to Jomel for sharing. Your work is amazing and so different. Love love love

Oh how I love the crazy, mad world that MangoRED create with their photography. Who else could come up with something so magical, hilarious, joyful and original!? Check out the styling...I have a total compulsion to dress up like a soya drink carton or wear an outfit to match my wallpaper right now...
A Mixed Media Engagement Shoot: Francis & Mayone
July 10, 2012
If you want to see photography that pushes boundaries then look no further than MangoRED. This Filipino duo have been pushing my buttons ever since I first discovered them waaaaay back at the beginning of 2009. Their work continues to inspire me to this day. Why? Because they're continually pushing themselves to create. Their work has evolved - almost into a completely different beast - but the essence of unadulterated and unapologetic creativity has remained a constant.
Red vs Blue Engagement Shoot: Dantley & Christina

It may be a massive generalisation, but in my experience no-one does engagement shoots like those creative folks in The Philippines. It's very rare that I featured these kinds of shoots any more, but when I'm presented with something like this, there is no way I'm going to turn it down!
A Boxing Engagement: Jmie & KC
June 29, 2012
I have another amazing engagement shoot from Rex of WeDoItForLove for you this morning. I've said it before and I'll say it again - no-one does engagement shoots like those Filipino wedding photographers!
Jmie & KC love contact sports, particularly boxing, so theming their shoot around this was a really fun way for them to celebrate their engagement. "People usually choose themes where they will look really beautiful", Rex told me. "So it was really awesome that they chose a theme that's was a bit gritty and less beautiful. It also didn't need so much styling as they already owned all the kit. The shoot was devised around the 'actions' which made it really fun to do."
