Mandarin Oriental Sanya

For years we have always imagined of shooting outside the Philippine territories and then everything just fell into place as our dream became a reality. True enough, last year we were privileged to work for one of the best hotels in the world; Mandarin Oriental Sanya. The place was like heaven to any individual who wishes to relax, unwind and feel the wonders of the earth and its beauty. Since they are known for their world class spa, you can surely be assured of tranquility at its finest. They will truly take your home where your heart is. :) Enjoy!

Eric and Fran

It's been so long since we've had a fun shoot just for the love of it, and we got that chance when we met Eric and Fran, the funniest and most artistic couple we've had in a long time! Fran's an awesome Architect, and Eric's a Visual Artist for Industrial Lights and Magic (ILM), if you don't know what ILM is, well.. they're the guys responsible for the visual effects you see in big movies like Star Wars and Avatar! So what happens when we're with a visual artist like Eric and an Architect like Fran? We got creative of course! We had a smashing good time shooting their wedding and prenuptial video, and Eric's Vows to Fran were the bomb! by von

“Nicole” : Bridal Elegance

Tampa, Florida We would like to thank Dennis of Binaryflips for helping us shoot this amazing lady for her bridal elegance video. ‘Beauty is kind and gentle. ‘Like a young mother half-shy of her own glory she walks among us.' And the passionate say, ‘Nay, beauty is a thing of might and dread. ‘Like the tempest she shakes the earth be- neath us and the sky above us.’ - Kahlil Gibran Sweet Babe, in thy face Soft desires I can trace, Secret joys and secret smiles, Little pretty infant wiles. - William Blake She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. - Lord Byron The beauty of a woman was described by different poets from all the over the world in different times. It is appreciated and adored. Such uniqueness stands firm and glows more, especially when a woman finally finds her one true heart's desire. It can not be kept and is best shown to the whole world. Mayad Studios is proud to present to you ... "Nicole" in her Bridal Elegance.

Henry and Joveyn : a Truly Asia Experience

Selamat datang Ke Kota Kinabalu. Once again we're back in Malaysia but this time we were set to conquer the beautiful island of Kota Kinabalu. Everyone was on a holiday mode during our time of visit since they were celebrating their independence day and at the dame time Ramadan. It was indeed the perfect time to relax and enjoy the marvelous sunset and pristine beaches of KK. Sure enough, that's what Henry and Joveyn did as we had our pre-wed shoot around the laid back city and finished it with a scenic garden wedding. And even though it drizzled during the ceremony, the sunset was still as majestic as it could ever be and no amount of rain could stop us and the couple from taking outdoor shots. Truly the day was filled with blessings. Thanks again to Henry, Joveyn,Kenny,our coordinators and photographer for touring us around and taking us on a gastronomic adventure. We will cetrainly be back for more spicy soups, Currys ans Roti Kaya butter toast. Soon! :) by Cecil

The Plunge: Sharon and Viresh

It was completely unexpected when we got Sharon's email telling us that she's getting married to her Indian fiance Viresh in South Africa. Yes our first ever Indian wedding, and it's in South Africa! I got so excited that I packed my best summer clothes because I thought that it's hot there, but to my surprise it was winter. Perfect! :p Best part of my African trip other than the safari experience, learning about Indian culture in South Africa and meeting new friends, was definitely "The Plunge"! I brought with me our underwater case for 5d and asked Sharon and Viresh to jump on the pool. The water was freezing!!! It was like melted ice. Three minutes after I got in the pool, i couldn't continue talking. I was never been that cold in my life. But I say that they did an awesome job by staying calm and smooth in front of the camera and also staying there for another 15 min with Jasmine Wang to do some photos despite of the freezing temperature. Jet setter - the right word to describe this lovely couple like sleeping in Paris and waking up in Amsterdam. They don't even know what jet lag is anymore. Sharon is such an inspiration when we get to talk about her travels, how she looks at life and her adventures with Viresh. It was awesome to know how these two different cultures were join together with one thing in common: LOVE. Sharon and Viresh are a perfect match. They're very sweet with each other and most of the times I see them just gazing and smiling at one another all throughout the trip. It was like watching a real life movie. But hey, I managed to make them their own movie. All that I can say that love is not just about cultures but its about how it is cultured. It has been like a dream come true experience! Special thanks to Irfad and Nishall for helping out. Sharon and Viresh from Mayad Studios on Vimeo.
