Blessing in Disguise

Yesterday was well spent, as I have done so many things, met a lot of great people, and have been opened to more opportunities. I couldn't have been more thankful to the Big Guy above for the things that has been happening to me right now.

I was invited to this photo shoot for the (Fashion by the Wedding Designers of the Philippines), FWDP  by Christine L, a good photographer and a friend. We both teamed up together with Yeoh. Upon arriving at the location, it was then we knew that the photo shoot was for an ad for Wedding Essentials Magazine. Imagine the shock that I got upon hearing this! It was my dream to do photo shoots for magazines such as W.E. Anyway, we aren't allowed to post photos yet from the actual photo shoot, but here's a couple (behind the scenes).

There were a lot of photographers, each with his/her own equipment! I was kinda envious of their gadgets and thingamajigs, it looks really expensive! But regardless, I think Tin and I did awesome, with or without those gadgets.

With the pool of photographers included in the photoshoot, I don't think everyone's photos will be published. I don't mind If my photo wouldnt be chosen. I'm so thankful and lucky already to be part of this experience!

What made the day even extra fun was seeing my good pals. Make up artists Anton, Nan, and Tippy; Hair Stylist Mycke; Designer Marc R., and Rxandy, one of my respected photographers. The models were also amazing! I'm so lucky to have worked with them! They are super nice to talk to!

To those people that I've met yesterday, thank you. Till the next one! I won't forget this experience!
