Sunday, September 9th, 2012

“Every wedding has an untold story.”

Indeed its in the untold stories where every W@W Assignment draws its inspiration.  This one’s about the adventure of Team MyPhotato which follows Passion Cooks from the alleyways of Manila’s Flower Market (Dangwa), to the caterer’s kitchen/commissary, well into the reception venue — from preps to egress.


Head onto the MyPhotato blog to see the more pictures and view the video to understand the passion behind Passion Cooks. :)

W@W Assignment: Following Divi’s Diva!
Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

For this W@W Assignment, Oly Ruiz of Metro Photo took us to the heart of Manila’s bargain mecca — Divisoria — to followed wedding planner, Ernest Pascual of Bespoke Manila as he sourced materials for his clients’ upcoming wedding. Earnest is the kind of coordinator who conceptualizes and creates the wedding details — escort cards, menu cards, candles, props, etc.  And though these are kind of items the bride usually DIY, Ernest sweats the small stuff with a ready arsenals worthy of his monicker, ‘Details Diva.’


 Oly describes W@W Assignment as a ‘backstage pass to a wedding’.  Head on to his blog to see him tell this particular story through pictures and words . . .


W@W Assignment: Chasing Fireworks!
Tuesday, April 10th, 2012


Continuing with our series of W@W Assignments, we have Jervy Santiago and his team from Visionary Photography Hub who gives us an insider’s peek how fireworks are set up for an event during the day, until these are launched at night.  The team followed a total of four set-ups (2 weddings, and 2 graduations) by Dragon Fireworks just to capture these nightime spectacle in the sky in various settings and weather conditions.

W@W Assignment: Dominic Barrios on Judy Uson (The Cake Artist)
Friday, February 24th, 2012

After the success of the very first W@W Assignment, we are happy to present to you the second in our series. We asked a wedding photographer to follow a photographer to document for our readers how a wedding cake is prepared days before the big day. Dominic Barrios took on the task and ‘stalked’ Judy Uson for more than a week to watch her build a ‘tower’ from the ground up!


Great job, Dom! Thank you, Judy & Batch Uson, for allowing us to see how a 6ft. wedding cake is done.  Again, may our readers appreciate the long hours devoted behind each wedding work of art. :)

W@W Assignment: Wedding Behind-the-Scenes
Monday, February 20th, 2012


W@W Assignment is a series of timeline shoots assigned to different photographers to capture how wedding suppliers do their work from beginning to end and get a glimpse of some behind-the-scene images. The project is inspired by this blogpost by Dino Lara who covered the rarely seen images how weddings are made.

With this, we hope to give soon-to-weds an overview how much heart is needed to come up with a great wedding. If the wedding suppliers are treated right, they give you heaven & earth if they can.  But without mutual trust & respect, they still do their job but merely run on autopilot to get the job done.

To kick off the series, we start with the mother assignment which Benjie Tiongco willingly accepted to do for us. He covered all the bases for almost 24 hours! Benz got goosebumps when reviewing his assignment.

We’d also like to acknowledge Donna Romano-Uy (a W@Wie) for welcoming the idea and letting us sneak in her wedding, and to her of team suppliers for accommodating Benjie and giving him the extra space to be able to capture the images he needed.

Here’s the result of Benjie’s passion, dedication, and hardwork – W@W Assignment: Wedding Behind the Scenes.
