La Mesa Watershed, Manila Engagement Session | Kim and Ruth

When Kim and Ruth told me that our location is the La Mesa Watershed, I just expected a lot of grass and trees. But I was wrong. It has so much character with numerous spots to play with that a few hours would not be enough to cover everything. It’s just quite far from the city but it’s so vast we had to use a car to go around the park grounds.

It also tested my skills to create unique photos and not just blur the background. Using varying angles and different lighting techniques to have images that the couple can call their own. That’s a personal challenge that I always make sure to follow in each shoot. Unless requested by a couple, I do my best to veer away from what I’ve already done in a past shoot and not place the couple in the same spot as I did with another pair. Where’s the value for money if we’re doing the same thing for everyone right?
