Paul + Aileen (Caleruega, Antonio’s)

Hallo folks! Let’s hope all the server troubles are things of the past. We would like to thank two people: MarkkyMarc and Markku for fixing things. They’re respectively the best sysadmin and web guy named Mark on this planet! Now, back to business…

Paul and Aileen had planned their wedding for nearly two years. They took us out to dinner at The Grove in Los Angeles early 2007 even if our calendar for January 2009 was still closed. Their wedding seemed faraway then but time sure does fly.

We found Paul’s note with a bouquet of roses for Aileen:

Their ring holder was a bird’s nest which I found amusing since we shot a few of their prenup photos in one giant bird’s nest.


It was our first Antonio’s wedding after the renovation, and I must say, the increased floor space makes Antonio’s perfect for intimate weddings. Props to Joyce Aguilar for the wonderful setup:

We met them 2007, shot their engagement in 2008, covered their wedding in 2009… hopefully we’ll see them again in 2010.

    Oh wow! I love the details – the ring holder, the gowns and table set-up! Ganda! Na-e-excite na ako for next year, we’re your April 24 couple hehe. :))

    Whawww!! Awesome shots! Is dat a new lens? Or maybe it’s just me.. Didnt see ur photos in awhile and I noticed something different. =))

    Thanks so much Mimi and Karl! If there was one supplier we were sure of from day one, it was you guys! I remember your trip to LA in 2007 (Hindi kami atat noh?) and remember the weird guy who approached our car on the way to The Grove? Creepy! Thanks for the memories, hehehe. =)

    We really enjoyed working with both of you and we are so happy with the photos. Beyond the technical aspects of our wedding, what was most important to us was that you were able to capture the happiness and joy around us (especially since our posing abilities are so limited =P). Our family and friends love the work you’ve done as well and my Mom is attempting to print ALL the pictures! Exagg! But I guess it is truly a testament of your talents. For sure dapat you should visit in 2010 kahit na WPPI, we’ll go to Vegas for you guys. =P You know, it’s an excuse for us to go there and gamble. =D

    PTH, Cool! Ikaw pala yun. :)

    Daphne, no new lens since July. Maybe it’s time for a new one… Mimi will kill me haha.

    Aileen, You’re welcome! I remember the weird guy and The Grove. The band Guster was even playing when we were there… one of my fave 90’s band and they were just playing na parang nasa Eastwood lang haha.

  5. Aileen Says:

    I didn’t notice that it was Guster! Grabe, you have quick eyes!

    Paul is asking for a “wedding gift” which is a tilt-shift lens (tama ba?) inspired by you guys daw. Sabi ko, first year anniv na lang ha? Hahaha! =P

    missed you guys! welcome back! hey that shot of the reception was great and so were the rings.

  7. karl Says:

    Thanks Michelle, nice to be back.

    Aileen, Actually there are 3 types so I guess, one wedding, one Christmas and one first anniv. :p
    Oh, I don’t think we’ll be in WPPI in 2010… The geek in me is more interested in attending SXSWi in Austin. Nerd-vana!
