… just wrapped up recording her debut album. Watch out for the release on March 22!
It’s not everyday I can say that the wedding’s reception was held at the backyard. Well, Bea and Das’ was.
And amidst the towering trees, the pretty flowers from Cibo d M, the Castañas station (it was Christmas after all) and the scores of people who shared the day and danced the night away – there was this sign -
And to hear the people speaking about them, giving them advice and recounting days gone by, you KNEW this wooden sign was prescient.
The wedding and celebration was beautiful beyond belief, this sets the bar pretty high for the marriage they aim for. But knowing Bea and Das – it’s gonna be a piece of chocolate cake.
It’s understandable that celebrities have walls around them to shield their private lives from the prying eyes of the public.
You also get the feeling that for the most part, they are inaccesible. Busy with their own work and fame.
I was proven wrong.
Iya and Drew are the most humble and friendly as they get. They don’t feel entitled .
They don’t preen. Which makes them all the more beautiful.
They don’t demand. Which makes acceding to their requests easier.
They make the ugliest, funniest faces. Which make them more charming.
They treat you as friends. Which ironically, makes me a bigger fan.
And believe me, there are numerous things that impress. Talent and looks are given. But how they relate to people, how they love their family and friends, and how deeply they regard each other, these are the things that make you adore them even more.
And it’s the little things:
How warmly she greeted us when we arrived in the morning, in her jammies, no makeup and unaffected.
How he incessantly invited my team to partake in their lunch.
How you realize that only a small part of the guest list came from the industry, and how media was non-existent. They weren’t putting on a show for anybody, they were celebrating the moment with those most important to them.
I’m truly glad to have filmed these moments.

Like giggly teenagers out for the summer day, basking in the sun, blasting the stereo, enjoying each other’s company.
Nary a care in the world. As it should be for lovers.

It took a Facebook follower to let me revisit this video and re-watch it.
That look that Irvin had when the doors opened for Rachel.
This! This so much.
Sometimes, it just takes a few frames to encapsulate the entire film.
This picture was taken in 2006, Jakob was head over heels when the Power Rangers visited Manila.
Some 8 years later, he’s shouting to the beat of a different drum (Thomas Hedlund to be precise).
It was the first concert he ever went to and it was extra special because Phoenix was truly one of his favorite acts. Hell, he knows more of their discography than I do.
You know the phrase – “you see them grow right before your eyes.” Exactly what happened.
It was special last night (and I’m waxing nostalgic over a rock concert).
Big thanks to the best concert photographer in the country Magic Liwanag and Karpos Productions for the VIP seats!
Get over the handsome good looks and the regal beauty of the couple. I’ll give you time, it may take a few minutes.
Now I’ll also give you a reprieve to collect your jaw from the floor after seeing the gorgelicious event styling of Jo Claravall.
Don’t overlook the Veluz gown too of course.
There were just so many aspects to this wedding that stand out it was difficult to define which was my favorite. Maybe its all the tiny details that made up this one big celebration.
Enjoy their same day edit as much as we did creating it.

Sharon was previously married.
Joe was too.
It makes you think – why go through it all over again?
Isn’t the pain and the lost time enough to make you feel jaded forever?
I’m glad some people don’t feel that way (myself included).
You see I firmly believe that life is about second choices. You make mistakes, you screw up, you pick yourself up again and move on. The key is to not make the same mistakes again. That’s being a smart human. Plus you always have to find different ways of screwing up! (I’m kidding).
I’m happy for Ron and Joe. They look great together. Their kids mesh well and they know what makes each other tick (and what ticks off one another). It was a great decision to make and I admire them for making it.
This is their second chance.

I Have You I do by Holley Maher
The bridal suite is usually silent and tense when we enter in the morning. You can’t blame the people really, it’s the perfect time to get anxious and OC about what’s going to happen the entire day.
But when we entered Tin’s room – EDM was blasting, everybody was abuzz with activity, the entourage were just laughing at and with each other, the bride was chill and even mom cracked a few over the course of the makeup session. It was a very fun and light vibe that me and Nelwin Uy’s team appreciated.
It precipitated an atmosphere of warmth and congeniality, which bred a desire to produce an output commensurate to how we were treated. ”I love this family so much I’m gonna make something kick ass for them”.
And so we did.

Badly need at least 3 days off. Can't see a window anytime soon. Ugh.
Don't fuck with the beard.
Some teams have entertaining play. A couple are flashy. A few are powerful. But the Spurs just play beautiful basketball.
See you tomorrow Assumption College!
Is it just me or Smart's signal has been erratic recently? No service! And I'm in the Makati CBD!
James Harden I love you and your beard!
