Mei’s post nup pics

I was in a TVC shoot when Mei approached me and asked if I could do her makeup for her upcoming post nup photo shoot. I love doing post nup shoots because there’s no stress, no time limit and the couple has nothing else to worry about. We can just have a steady day, do several options and bond over something Mei and I obsess over… MAKEUP!

The couple chose the beautiful Fernwood Gardens in Alabang as backdrop to their portraits.

Behind the lens is Wally Gonzales..

.. who captured the newly-weds’ after glow 🙂

Goodluck Mei! Can’t wait to work with you again, whether another TVC, or your very own makeup gig!

Mackie and Joanne

When it’s your good friend who’s getting married, you hold your breath harder, and you dread the walk in the aisle because you already know you’re going to cry or be captured in the videos sniffing all the tears in. But if your friend is marrying someone like Mackie, it’s a whole different experience *wink wink*. Love you both!
