carlo and heidi

Seeing two friends that you have been shooting dozens of weddings with through the years finally get married still leaves a surreal experience. πŸ™‚ Two Β photographers who’s passion for the Lord and photography just overflows. They always had my back in numerous weddings.. now it was their turn to sit back and be the main subjects! πŸ˜€ Carlo and Heidi has been the best of friends and the worst of enemies at the same time and they ended up together! How amazing is that.. hehe. πŸ˜€ These two take the cake for all the preparations that they did to pull of such a personalized wedding. Set in picturesque Stilts Calatagan and one of the most gorgeous churches I’ve ever seen..inside hacienda Moreno.

Since we were a bunch of photographers that day, I was assigned to Carlo’s preparations and their in between portraits. πŸ˜€ But of course I couldn’t help but of course take snaps during the touching ceremony! πŸ˜€ Can’t wait for the others to blog too! So you could see this fab wedding through the eyes of my talented co-photographers and friends! πŸ˜€

Gown: Cecilio Abad

Bridal Make up: Madge Landrito

Groom and family Make up: Jesy Alto

Hair: Steve Pagsanjan

Photographers: shot with Erron Ocampo, Toto Villaruel, Dominic Barrios, Derrick Lim, and Imagine Nation Photography

Videography: Wang and Film Factory

Flowers and Event Styling: Teddy Manuel

Coordination: Christine Ong Te Events


The wedding was set at around 1pm..and you can guess that it was mighty hot that day! πŸ˜€

Arriving at Carlo’s cabana, he was still doing some last minute stuff and was a bit tense..but we managed to sit him down and start to relax him a bit. πŸ˜€ Being a photographer also, we get rattled too during our own big day! πŸ˜€

Stilts had some beautiful rock formations near the shore and we took advantage of them!

Meet Chanel and Armani.. the lovely dogs of Toto and Nicole, fellow wedding photographers also. I wish we brought Coffee and Trooper! But I think they would have plopped out with the extreme heat that day.

Facial expression test… Carlo style. πŸ˜€

Meet Carlo’s lovely family! He’s the first to get married among the siblings and his dad even kidded me that it was looooong overdue as he got married at the age of 20! Now Carlo got married at the age of…. secret… πŸ˜€

Carlo’s suit was made by Cecilio Abad and his team. Β Carlo and Heidi searched for the fabric in Divisoria and Tito Cecil did his magic with it. πŸ˜€

We now travel to the ceremony venue which was about 15min away! Tucked away in the beauuuutiful Hacienda Moreno! Imagine a chapel on a hill overlooking a lush estate. I heard the owner built that chapel for his daughter’s wedding.

You might be familiar with the following faces below…. πŸ˜€

Spotted this very pretty lady roaming around…. πŸ˜€

And finally I see Heidi for the first time! And wow was she blooming that day! Her gorgeous gown was made by Cecilio Abad also and her make up was done by no other than Madge Landrito.

And now it was time for the ceremony to begin! πŸ˜€


Gotcha Noel and Rae! Having a moment under the tree! Your next to get married harhar!

Carlo prepares to deliver the first kiss! πŸ˜€ And many more to come that afternoon! πŸ˜€

I love my Imagine Nation Family πŸ˜€

Dried leaves were thrown during the recessional. πŸ˜€

Ok now back to work! πŸ˜€ I was one of the assigned together with Erron, Toto, and Jamie to do Heidi and Carlo’s in-between portraits. πŸ˜€

This spot was wayyyyyy too spectacular! πŸ˜€ Gorgeous light seeping through the leaves… magic! πŸ˜€

You needed not to pose these two anymore… they were naturals.. πŸ˜€


Come reception time I managed to get some shots in. πŸ˜€ But then I let those assigned to cover the program capture such a chill reception. πŸ˜€ Wonderful set up done by Teddy Manuel! Imagine a bed for the couple’s area! πŸ˜€ Β I then just chilled with my wife. πŸ˜€ Congrats again Carlo and Heidi!

  8. Hi! I love all your photos, they’re amazing! I would like to find out if you have the contact details for the chapel in Hacienda Moreno? I know its a private church built for the owner’s daughter, but do they rent it out now for other weddings? I would really appreciate any help you could extend to me on this church!

    Thank you so much!
