Paul and Lian are not your typical couple. One is a wedding photographer, and the other is a talented makeup artist. For their engagement shoot, we went out of their way to make sure it was a memorable one.

Mt. Pulag, located in remote Benguet province, is famous for its breathtaking sunrise, its sea of clouds, and the looming Milky Way hovering above it at night. Many brave the cold to see these wonders, and we were blessed to get all three for this shoot!

It was not easy to get there. A four-hour bus ride to Baguio, a thrilling three-hour jeepney ride over winding roads, and finally a five-hour hike passing through mossy forests and majestic hills. We had to spend the night there in chilling 5-degree weather while shooting the Milky Way, and wake up at 3am to make it in time at the summit for the sunrise. We were all tired, but once the clouds came into view, we knew this was all worth it.

Let the photos take you through a journey up Luzon’s highest mountain, as we present Paul and Lian’s amazing engagement shoot.
