When we were small, we have always dreamed of a Cinderella story. We always knew deep inside that there would come that day when we will meet our prince, fall in love, marry him and live happily ever after. Well. another Cinderella dream came true yesterday. And Barbara certainly looks like a beautiful fairytale princess in her white gown. Barbara and Allan finally walked down the aisle..and did they live happily ever after? No one knows yet..only time could tell but based on what we have witnessed yesterday, they certainly look good together and indeed are happy. Finally, she has given her love and life to Allan. And now their destiny can begin. Watch as we unfold their Cinderella heart story through the SDE we are about to present. Finally! ;)

If there is something we learned with our most recent wedding is that in life, there will be a never ending search for that ideal person you wish to spend the rest of your life with..but at the end of the day the only person you want to be with is the person who could make you laugh and accept you for who you are no matter the differences. This wisdom was shared to us by no other than our groom himself Jaime Daez. The heart story of Chris and Jaime started a few years ago when the Tita of Jaime and the mom of Chris agreed to set them up. Even though Chris never believed in blind dates agreed to meet Jaime who happens to be in a lot of blind dates before. Surprisingly they just hit it off from the first date..and the rest was history. Love happens when you least expect it. Cheers to our awesome couple Jaime and Chris!!! Enjoy the SDE guys.

What is love? According to dictionary.com, love is a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection. But does it really conquer the real essence of the word “love”? Such a strong word for someone to define, one must feel that emotion in order to express its true meaning. With our two doctors Tonel and Manny it was a no brainer. Love just comes out naturally and it shows in their video we are about to present. Here’s one of our most heartfelt SDE from two of the nicest doctors we’ve ever met. Cheers!

The First All 5D Wedding Video Shoot

This one’s for the record!

Photo by Master Dino Lara

Not just because all of us used the Canon EOS 5D Mk. II the entire wedding but all of us(Bob, Jason, Mayad, Threelogy) worked as one team for this project. It was a blast working with the best in the country if not the world!

It was a risk worth taking! But come to think of it, it wasn’t that risky after all. When we started shooting, everything just fell into place.

Enjoy this piece which Alvin and Jason put together.
