Before 2016 ends I have covered a wedding of another music ministry colleagues. People are getting married on December! Party overload!

I’ve known the groom since his college days and he is a singer/guitarist of the church’s music ministry in Pasig. I’ve seen how he grows not only in the ministry but in his walk with God. He often hugs me whenever I see him at the church or somewhere else and he still does until now. I often call him Jumong since he looks like the Korean drama character Jumong. The bride is a guitarist as well and a chef now.  She joined our new Victory group just recently.

My first fan as a photographer is my family. I like it when they support the remarkable ensemble I do and I like less when they tell me that my shots are so-so (not so good). Who wouldn’t want recognition? And who would want criticism? Nonetheless, as an endeavoring photographer, critique is one factor to become better and compliment is another.

This is my first ever pre-debut coverage. Anyway, she is my niece, my sold out beau. Hahaha.  Having nieces is a good advantage as I can always cover their special events for my portfolio. Of course, they would love to do that for their  Facebook profile picture or a post for their Instagram accounts. I covered one of her pre-debut pictorial 2 years ago. She prefers my service above all other great photographers. Not because I am better than those photographers out there, it’s simply because, she is more relaxed and comfortable posing in front of me and my camera. I implied her (and my sister – her mom) to get another photographers for her pre-debut and her party itself. Why not me? I promised I would do her make up on her debut (yes she prefers my make up on top of professional ones. talk about loyalty? hahaha) and I can’t do both. Moreover, I don’t do videos, so it’s best to have other photographers do the videos. Since it’s rare nowadays to get a video service alone as it always comes with photos, so they hired them for both.

I still accompanied her (and her mom) during the shoot with the hired photographers in Ecopark, Quezon City, so I still get some shots of her. Though she still wants me to take another pre-debut shoot for her afterwards. Spoiled niece huh? So we went all the way to Pangasinan (our hometown) where her lolo (my father) made her a swing just for the photoshoot and to Baguio where we had to brave the cold weather and the rain.

It’s fun taking photos under the pouring rain not to mention defying the brisk weather.
