the light girl

nothing much to say today. it was weird at work today. and it's only befitting that i can't type too much as i sort of sprained my right shoulder blade causing me pain in my right arm for two weeks now. so i leave you with photos of my friend's pre-nuptial shoot last sunday at the mountains of cebu and a little of the cebu street. had to tag along to shoot some photos myself and learn a few tricks from their photographer. last sunday, i was the 'light girl' and these are some of the photos i took.

i wish i can say that i styled this shoot but my friend chose her outfit all by herself -- i am so lovin' the hat!
the photographer is 'paul calo' who is a part-time wedding photographer -- you can check out some of his works here.
ps. if you're wondering about the food we're holding, those are 'caramelized fried bananas' or 'banana-cue' as we call them. mine is a 'turon' which is a banana wrapped in lumpia wrapper and then deep fried with caramel. yum!!!
