03.09.2016 Mac & Jhunie's Batanes Destination Wedding. Fundacion Pacita & Marlboro Country, Batan Island, Batanes, Philippines.
Go*. Just go**. If Batanes is in your destination wedding short list or travel bucket list, don't think twice. It's been weeks already, but I'm still enthralled by the sheer beauty of this place. And to think that it's my third time shoot in Batanes already! I think it might take three more before I reach the "been there - done that" phase.
And this. The styling. I've seen postcard-worthy locations ruined by event styling that's tastleless and a five-letter "B" word in the vernacular. Definitely, not this one. Go get these guys to do your Batanes wedding. Their sense of aesthetics - *the audience goes oooh* - that's the stuff Pinterest boards are made of.
* ** During the summer months, of course. I've seen Batanes' bad side. It's sad, gloomy, ominous, dank, dark, foreboding, etc... you can say goodbye to those Milky Way shots at night.
