Coron, Palawan Engagement Session | Marlon and Cay

It was January of this year when we joined our first bridal fair and I must say it was an absolute success. If you missed how our booth looked like, you might wanna check out these photos:

Instead of giving away the usual such as discounts, we held a raffle for those who will book us during the expo. The premium prize is an all expense paid engagement session in Coron for one couple.

Palawan – dubbed as the “Last Frontier” and is home to multiple uninhabited islands which are probably the largest biodiversity hotspots in the Philippines. I chose this island province as the destination for our winning couple because of the unique natural displays that aren’t always showcased in an engagement session.

Traveling to Coron was a breeze but the actual photo shoot became quite a challenge because of strong rains which frequently put us on hold. We could’ve stayed a day longer if it weren’t for other schedules in Manila so we decided to continue despite the gloomy weather. Before we went here, there was this photo that I’ve been dreaming of taking in Palawan, a view of the corals below with Marlon and Cay on the other side of the frame. I knew it wasn’t gonna be easy but I felt that it will surely be worth it. So there I was underwater, with sea urchin stings and all, while our brave couple stayed on the edge of the boat. It took a lot of tries but at the end of the day, it was probably the most iconic image I took.
