All my bags are packed but i'm not so ready to go


Some behind the scenes during an engagement shoot for one of our clients.
This was shot on location at Benito Ebuen Air Base a.k.a Mactan Air Base. We had a blast shooting in vintage planes and choppers of the Hukbong Himpapawid ng Pilipinas (Philippine Air Force). We even managed to sneak inside a war plane (i don't know what it's technically called) but decided to get out instantly coz it was kinda eerie and creepy I wonder if some soldier died in there.
I was amazed at how clean and organized the place was. There were houses of active and retired air force men and their families. I din't know that before till we toured the place.
I'd love to take my friends there and shoot a 50's or 60's themed era. Think polka dots, wooden trunks, gloves, fascinators. Ok maybe one of these days. :)

Fuschia floral maxi dress - Bought online
Denim vest - thrifted
Tan shoulder bag - thrifted
Yellow wayfarer - Gaisano Countrymall bazaar

And oh btw, I was rummaging through my pc yesterday and found these pics of me and the boyfriend shot just for fun a little over a year ago. Yeah, that's the same dress. And yeah, we gained some weight. I guess getting old really disrupts one's metabolism. Gone are the days wherein I can put every single food in my mouth without gaining a single pound. Got to swim those laps!
