Georges Rousse paints floors, walls and ceilings so that at a single vantage point (like from where this photograph was taken), the colors line up to form geometric shapes. (But not just geometric shapes, check his site).

I like how these photos by Jake Verzosa (for Preview) are simultaneously gentle and tense. Each frame feels like a slo-mo shot of a falling glass figurine.

El-el and Ryan passed on the modern wedding “necessities” (towering cake, 3-page guest list) to focus on the real essentials: family, friends, and the commitment they were promising, in spite of the mayor’s warnings (from experience, apparently) of difficulty ahead. Isn’t that really all you need?

Everyone was relaxed. No one panicked when the mayor asked for the coins (they weren’t brought). Instead, everyone gamely reached into their pockets to raise the needed 13 5-pesos. (The mayor even called out to his staff if they had any!) You get so used to the manic everything-must-be-perfect! of today’s weddings. This was refreshing.

I’m conscious though that my pictures lack a lot of pretty (sorry El! not your fault, promise). Shouldn’t real wedding photographers produce dreamy, romantic shots? Maybe soften filters will help? I dunno. To do: work on pretty.

I’ve finally finished processing El-el’s pictures, but first: one more from Tonton and Valerie’s. If you’ve seen the whole set you’ve probably noticed I don’t have a lot of real “wedding pictures.” I quickly lose interest taking pictures of something five other cameras are pointed at, which is why these look-the-other-way shots are usually the ones I seem to find (and like ;)).

You’re at that age when a lot of your friends are tying the knot. Which means… more practice.

This is from Tonton and Valerie’s, last December 17. My idea of a good reception is when the guests don’t leave after the dinner, but stay for the rest of the program. Theirs had guests milling around even after the program, you couldn’t get them to start leaving! Everyone just wanted to stay and celebrate. Great.
