Ryan & Cha Cha’s engagement session blows everything else out of the water. An eclectic, colourful, hilarious, circus, wonderland styled shoot looks like absolute crazy fun.
A sugarcane plantation in Northern Cebu was the perfect backdrop for our quirky theme of vagabond lovers. Hats, clown figurines, a colored umbrella, truck load of clothes, bicycles, and a purple teddy bear. Pure craziness in the middle of nowhere!
A massive thanks to Jeff, Jon, and Gilby of Rock Paper Scissors Photography for sharing this awesome session with us

‘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."
Mimes at the Circus: Neill & Niamh
November 9, 2012
This is a little bit freaky... so if you're scared of clowns, mimes or circus freaks I suggest you look away now!
For their engagement shoot, fancy dress loving Neill & Niamh decided they wanted to dress as mimes. This quirky pair didn't want a traditional or boring engagement session - they wanted to add some personality! So they gathered some inspiration from the internet and went shopping for their outfits. All the props were all their own and as fate would have it, the circus came to town just down the road from where they live, so they asked the owner if they could shoot there.
High Fashion Farm Engagement
December 2, 2012
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!
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.
A Medical Themed Engagement Shoot: Gem & Jay-R

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.
Red vs Blue Engagement Shoot: Dantley & Christina
Rock Paper Scissors
June 15, 2013
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."

Cupcakes + tattoos + bicycles + bunting + everything awesome you could want in one session = LOVE! Candace & Tyler are way.too.awesome. he even calls her 'Cupcake' AND she has the word tattooed on this inside of her fingers. Oh swoon swoon swoon... I can't wait to see/blog their wedding. I might die with anticipation.
