Leo and Myra Engagement

 It was a wonderful experience to have shoot my long lost high school friend Myra (the bride) with their Engagement session. I can't imagine how time flies so fast. The last time we saw each other was during 4th Year High school.And now she's getting married!

While shooting them, there are no awkward moment and all was fun and everything went success. Because maybe of the relationship that we had and the moments we have shared during high school years. So it was really fun and awesome experience! They wed last May 7th, 2012 at Apo View Hotel, Davao, Philippines. Thank you Leo and Myra for giving me the opportunity to shoot. Blessings!

 And here is the rest of it.
