It is always an honor to film a friend’s wedding.
I met Andrea, my college buddy Jec’s long time girlfriend, during another college buddy of ours Carlo way back in 2011. She told me then that she’d love it if I film her big day. Three years later, on a rainy November day at St. Benedict church in Nuvali, her big day finally comes.
It’s exactly a month and a day since then. November 15, 2014. I believe I have something to do with their wedding date. See, we’ve bumped into each other quite a few times since I first met them as a couple. We’ve been talking about them getting married. No dates. St. Benedict Church wasn’t booked yet nor the Bellevue hotel. All we know is that when it’s their turn to get hitched, I’ll be there to film. When we finally decided to make it official, I messed up big time. To cut the story short, they had to change their wedding date for me! It may very well be the most embarrassing moment in my career. I am very grateful that Jec and Ady still booked our services for their wedding day.
I just had my DJI Phantom quadcopter pimped with an FPV (first person view) and I had a great time flying over Bellevue and St. Benedict Church! The rain almost ruined the fun but it didn’t stop me from getting those beautiful aerial shots. =)
