Sometimes, ideas pop out here and there when I cram. Back in college, I had the penchant of memorizing formulae and equations on the dawn of a morning exam. And the results always turned out fine. Yes, I work better when under pressure. I hate to overplan and I'm not comfortable of being too prepared. A little entropy in life is good. I hate being too organized, I want a little chaos. If you ask me if I have a ten-year plan or even a five-year plan, I have none. I just like to live for the moment and seize the day as it comes. 

Pardon me If I'm blabbing again. What I'm saying is it's less than two months to go and I'm only 40% done with my preparations. I can do this. Because I work best when under pressure. 

I'm off to another brainstorming session with the boyfriend. I have so much to share in the coming days. :)

At one of my favorite beach in the Philippines.

Kookoo's Nest, Antulang, Negros Oriental. 
Quiet, underrated, and a true beauty.

I shall see you again soon. :)

Couldn't think of a much better title. 
Sometimes choosing a title for a post could turn out to be a much difficult feat than deciding for the design of your wedding gown. haha

Some of the photos stocked up on my phone over the last couple of months.  

All photos taken using my trusty Blackberry.

We've been to Bohol on various occasions either for a wedding or engagement session but the place holds a beauty so dear that I still can't stop myself from abusing the shutter button of my camera.

One of the perks of out of town shoots is you get to discover really awesome places and meet really wonderful people who stuff you with really delicious and gastronomic meals. Really. Andaming really. haha

Thank you Melai and Ruel for showing us around and for making our job a million times easier. You're both fun to work with and the camera just loves you. :)

The Outfit:

Wore something light and breezy because it was specially hot that day. This skirt was of the perfect length; it's comfortably long enough to cover the knickers when I have to get down for a shot.
Plus the print was a no-brainer, I just had to wear it. 

Graphic skirt: thrifted , Gingham blouse: thrifted, Denim vest: thrifted, Boater hat: SM, Sunglasses: BTC, Camel sandals: Primadonna, Bag: Vintage

When Gizelle of Vanilla Ice Cream booked us for their upcoming wedding, Moy and I got really excited because we know they are up for anything. And I know whatever theme they aim for, it's something quirky and out of the ordinary. 

We are most of the time oozing with out of the box ideas for engagement sessions but of course an idea will always remain an idea unless a couple is willing to do it. The couple's personality is our topmost priority in conceptualizing engagement sessions. Because these photos are for keeps till they grow old, we want the shots to be a reflection of who they really are. You can't inject grunge rock theme to a book lover couple or shoot high fashion/magazine themed to a laid back beachbum couple. Sometimes, both are opposites so our solution to that problem is to do two separate shoots wherein each is reflective of the individual's personality.

But as for Gizelle and Harry, they knew exactly what they want so our work is as easy as pie. We've always wanted a grassy open field shoot with a couch and a mirror as props but we just haven't came across a couple who's willing to do it. So imagine our excitement when Gizelle had this idea for their engagement, we were over the moon. :) The only glitch was to find the perfect location with the most gorgeous available light.  After half a day of scouring the mountains, we found this gorgeous spot with a light that is oh so heavenly.

These are just behind the scenes shots. The boyfriend will be uploading the official photos very soon.

Hope you guys liked it. :)

P.S. The uber talented Phil Lapinid shot the Save the date Video so the whole session was like a blogger collaboration thing. Fun times. :)

It's been a whole lot like hell at work this week. Experienced all kinds of trouble for a project and I dreaded coming to the office each morning knowing what I have to solve and deal with. It even bothers me in my sleep and keeps me awake at night. How I wish we have this button in our body where we can switch to "home" mode  and temporarily erase the happenings at work when we leave the confines of our office. I've always been a worry-freak and I have yet to learn how not to bring the stresses of work at home. I hope next week will be much more forgiving. 

Decided to post these photos from our shoot with officemates a couple of weeks ago. These truly reflect my mood.

Dress with fur detail: Chic Vintage, Shoes: Gold Dot 

Gold Dot lent us these sky-high babies! I especially love the semi-heelless shoes. :) The gorgeous baubles were from Sugar Kissed :)

Hope you guys will have a wonderful weekend! As for me, I will try to just induce positive vibes into my 2 days off.
