Food photography via Instagram

Food is my favorite photo subject, and I love taking Instagram photos of them (and share them via Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram itself, of course!)

Here are some food photos that I would like to share with you:

Let’s start off with breakfast. I love breakfast buffets!

I Do!

When I was in high school, my best friend and I believed that a woman should marry before she reaches her 30’s. I married just in time, 2 months before my deadline. πŸ™‚

Here are some photos of our special day that I would like to share with you:

I am so lucky to have sisters who are creative (We are 6 sisters, btw πŸ™‚ I’m sister #1.). This cake topper was hand-made by sister #2 out of clay (which she got for me as pasalubong from the cruise ship she’s working in). Sister #3 loves photography so she took our prenup photos; sister #4 is into graphic arts–she designed our invitations and photobooth template. The younger ones have taste in fashion. I consult them for the dresses.

I love the color of my flowers! They make a pretty contrast with my dress.

I learned from my wedding photographers that good natural lighting creates great photos! All my photos are unedited. πŸ˜€

I mentioned that we are 6 sisters, right? Here’s a photo of us:

And of course, let me introduce to you the loving father of these gorgeous ladies πŸ˜‰

We tied the know at Our Lady of Remedies Parish (more commonly known as “Malate Church”) in Malate, Manila.Β  Here are some of the photos taken at the Church.

This photo is one of my favorites!

The Church interior looks beautiful from this angle.

And we’re blessed… look at how the water beads were captured by the camera. πŸ™‚

The kids were well-behaved…

During holy communion, the people were reminded not to leave their bags behind…

Priest: “You may kiss the groom!”

At the reception, while our guests are busy filling up their tummies with the delicious food from Hizon’s Catering, we are busy with more photo-taking.

While watching the AVPs prepared by sister #4 and by our friend from Singapore, this moment was captured. The green lighting from the backdrop created a cool effect on the photo.

To view the rest of the photos, you can check out my Facebook page.

We’re very much grateful to everyone who made this wedding possible.

Malate Church and The Pergola, both beautiful venues for our ceremony and after-wedding party

– Jamie Lihan, Madoka Kashiwazaki and Sanny Latinas of Imagine Nation Photography for the wonderful photos

– Melissa Medilo for my pretty bridal gown and bridesmaids’ dresses

Leggiero Strings for the great music at the reception

To our friends and relatives who joined us and witnessed our special day; to our family for their love and support, and; to the man who I will be spending the rest of my life with… thank you!

This is a day for remembering all the beautiful things that have been and a day for looking forward to all the beautiful things yet to come…
