I promised a dedicated post for our photographer and videographer, so here it is!

This team made miracles for me, and I can never thank them enough for it. Really.
One of the downsides with having a long distance engagement is the fact that all your pre-wedding frills are put to a hold until your partner is with you. Le Mari arrived in the Philippines three weeks before the wedding, and being December, it’s obvious that Fritz and his team are fully booked the entire month. Want to know when we shot our pre-nuptial photos? December 26. Yes, this team woke up probably hung over from Christmas celebrations and marched off to the Joya Residences at Rockwell, Makati to give us an amazing time and well, needless to say, amazing photos.
They made the most of the entire space. I swear, this photo set does not even begin to describe how well they captured our coupledom. They were patient and caring, they helped us ease into the shoot. Le Mari is very shy, so being in front of the camera is not really his cup of tea. (When he realized that we’ll be taking so many photos, he started to explore the possibility of not being in so many of them. Seriously.) But Fritz was able to put him at ease! The photos turned out so great.
Come wedding day, they were so early and complete. It was a very relaxed atmosphere because of them, and my personal favorite would be the female photog, Cha (if I recall her name correctly). The team was accommodating and on point all the time.
I do regret though not having that many photos of just me and Le Mari. We did steal away an hour to drink at the nearby Bugsy’s just to relax before the formal reception, so we did steal from them precious time with precious lighting. Nonetheless, we love the selection and we still owe them the final picks for our album.
There were some problems with lighting, looking now at the raw pictures. But Fritz and his wife Mayette are more than reassuring that everything will be properly edited and adjusted to our liking.
I swear, everything that we paid for with this team is absolutely worth it. Book them. Seriously.
Oh and did I mention the divine same-day edit video? If this is already this awesome, I am so excited for the final edit. I almost wanted to change the song, but I am so happy that Fritz talked me down and that I relinquished control. This is just perfect.
You must MUST consider them for your next event. :)
