july 24, 2008 – university of the philippines
sedated by silence after four long days of laughter, gossiping and fooling around with hundreds of different faces, i woke up this afternoon with a smile of contentment on my face. my ankles hurt, my throat is sore, my back aches a little and i terribly need a masseuse (no, no, not the kind that offer special services.) =) today, i go back to work, but before everything else, i will blog!…today, i blog about the first day of that long but very fulfilling four days. =)
thursday started quite well and the weather was great. i was so excited to try out my new camera and our new lens that i had a hard time sleeping the night before…when i read the word “super” in the macro lens’ box, i didn’t think it really was that super!!! man oh man, was i in for a treat! check out the screen grab!
i knew the perfect song to use as soon as cielo informed me that it was a french-themed wedding! everybody may have heard the song before (which is a good thing because they can sing along) but not this version. working with mangored is always crazy as hell. with mangoryan and mangorandall laughing like we own the place, i always look forward to working with them. mind blowing ideas these guys have.
even the rain was unable to stop the fun. it did, however, gave me extra time to get the video done in time. the pastor loved the video so much that he said he’ll get married again soon. i just hope he’ll marry the same woman he married the first time!..and of course, get me to shoot it!!! =) check out the video here.
the day after, while cielo and edward are enjoying their free boracay honeymoon, we were getting ready for ptv’s very first bridal fair…the wedding congress…but this is a totally a different story. =)
june 28, 2008 – san roque chapel, subic freeport zone
olongapo city convention center
it was one heck of a dance! i swear i still hear people talking about the couple’s first dance as i was walking out of the venue. =) i had to watch it again when i got home just to make sure that i captured it on tape. it was unique, totally unexpected (even the emcee didn’t see it coming) and totally extraordinary…then again, these are what weddings are made of!
it was a little tricky making this video. imagine, i had three weddings to tell in a five minute song. i had a couple of sleepless nights to figure out how to weave it together and come up with something like…maybe the first dance…unique, unexpected and extraordinary. =)
here’s the onsite video.
