As for the wedding, thankfully it was the most laid-back and spontaneous I've ever attended. My directions were to take photo-journalistic/candid shots, which I liked. The couple didn't want any photo shoots, which I also liked. I don't remember any awkward moments. In many instances in Philippine weddings, guests would start to leave after having their dinner, even though the reception program has just started. But there was none of that in this wedding. Everybody participated and had fun! And the program? Well, no professionals were hired. It was completely a production of the couple's friends and relatives.
I brought two cameras with me. One was an old DSLR, which I thought already died, but suddenly worked when I took it to a service center just days before the wedding. However, the photos it takes now have a washed-out color and vintage feel to it. Below is one of the photos from the old cam.

|I love how busy this photo looks.|

The lights were turned off when he took out his light saber. :)
