My Bride-Model

I took 2 flights to the Philippines to be in my niece's wedding. Well, some of you knew the plan in my previous post. So, here are some of the photos I took during the special family occasion. I took tons of photos so expect I'll be showing more for the whole month, I think!

It was a sunset wedding but the bridal entourage was already getting dressed and made-up in the morning at the 16th floor of Marco Polo Hotel.

Loved the view of Mt. Apo from our window!

Michelle, the lovely bride, had her own official photographer but I had my pleasure snapping shots on the side.

 I didn't need a professional camera. The natural lighting in the room and the bride's beauty were enough for me to take the best shot.

 I used to enjoy taking photos of her when she was a little girl. Michelle is the first grandchild in our family so she was our living doll. Oh, how she loved to pose for me!

Isn't she the loveliest bride? You can tell I'm a proud aunt.

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood,
but of respect and joy in each other's life.”
