Don and Aniqa

Photographer : Mangored What we love most in our job is that we are able to see real people and true happenings. In one of our latest weddings, we were fortunate to be able to shoot a traditional Muslim wedding. We were so amazed of the very colorful traditions that made us realize that we Filipinos are very rich with such amazing cultures. Oh did I mention that Don and Aniqa came from royal families? Both of their fathers are datus which makes them prince and princess. Catch our very first Muslim wedding courtesy of Don and Aniqa.
