A friend of mine and an excellent Filipino wedding photographer John Mateos Ong was in town from Manila and invited me to assist him for a series of engagement shots in downtown San Francisco. The exuberant couple was Tina and Joel, who would have their wedding at St. James Church in Alabang. Jong was their official photographer.
Even if I was a tag-along, it was a pleasure to be part of their shoot. We navigated Yerba Buena Gardens, Market Street, Union Square and Westfield Mall in search for picturesque backgrounds. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.
