We're on TV!

One afternoon, I received a call from Marc, he can't contain his excitement, "Honey, ABS-CBN is going to feature us on tv! They are going to the studio today to have a short interview." I too was in panic, I checked my watch, just a couple of hours left, oh no, I have another bad hair day, no time for hair rescue, clothing change. What am I going to say? What are they going to ask? Restless. It's not everyday this happens, and we must be one of the most video-shy people in Bay area. Definitely we are not camera shy, but video?

ABS-CBN is a Philippine tv network, delivering news, entertainment and content from Manila and US through TFC (The Filipino Channel). The show which we would be on is called Pera Mo Pera Ko (Your Money My Money) and they feature new businesses in a 2-minute segment. Came the writer Mouse Munoz, who interviewed us and he immediately made us at ease. And the segment producer Sam Simbulan was as cool and nice. So here is the video that was aired, credits go to ABS-CBN's Sam and Mouse, for the wonderful edit =). Thank you guys, for this unusual opportunity. And for our good friend Sir Norman who brought our business to the producer's attention.

May + Simon - Cherry Blossoms and more

During May and Simon's consultation with us last year, one of the areas we talked about is their engagement session. We asked what they wanted to do for the engagement session, like we often do, we suggested doing a theme that the couple like, or something that they are passionate about. May had an idea, she wants parasols and a cherry blossom photoshoot. And so cherry-blossom it is! They planned for a perfect timing when the cherry blossoms are in bloom at the Japanese Garden @SF. May was dressed in an off-white wedding gown filled with lace reminiscent of Kate Winslet in that movie Sense and Sensibility.(She will wear a different gown on her wedding day.) Simon does photography as a hobby. He conveyed to us what he wants for his photos, and his wish is our command. Hats off to May and Simon's excitement and energy, it was our pleasure to photograph you. Looking forward to your wedding. Here are some of the photos and watch out for more.
