Chris and Mina
St. Louis, Missouri
October 8, 2005

Congratulations to Mina and Chris! Mike and I had a wonderful weekend in St. Louis, where they celebrated their wedding under clear blue skies and in the company of loving friends and family.

Their story is so sweet! Chris and Mina were childhood playmates in the Philippines. Chris and his family later moved to the US, where he still lives today. Years later, he and Mina reunited and discovered that they were a perfect match. They have spent their relationship separated across thousands of miles, waiting for the day that they would be together. This wedding marks the end of their separation, and the beginning of a beautiful marriage.

I’ll post more pictures in a few weeks, after I’ve had a chance to sort through them. In the meanwhile, here’s a few preview photos. Mina and Chris, Mike and I hope you are having a wonderful time in Hawaii! Thanks for asking us to be a part of your special day.

Re: Charlotte!

Try the Voice-over-IP… I hear that’s really cheap! We’re going to try that for phone calls to Mike’s family in the UK.

Re: Lovely, lovey pictures!

We use Canon 20Ds and assorted lenses and accessories.

Re: Lovely, lovey pictures!

What camera do you use btw? πŸ™‚

Re: Charlotte!

I do, I do indeed. Methinks stock in a phone card company is a good investment right about now. πŸ™‚

Re: Charlotte!

Hi Teresa! It’s so cool that you’re on LJ, too.

I’m thrilled to hear that you think we’ve captured the true Mina and Chris, especially since you know them so well. You must miss your girl Mina now that she is here in the US! I’m sure Chris will take good care of her, though. πŸ™‚

Re: Lovely, lovey pictures!

Hi there! I’m sorry you weren’t able to make it to their wedding–it was such a wonderful day. I hope these pictures (and the ones to come) can help you experience it vicariously!

And it’s great to be added, thanks. πŸ™‚

Charlotte!

Hey girl! It’s Teresa….I LOVE the photos! You so captured the happiness and the love they have together…can’t wait to see the rest! πŸ˜€ Regards to Mike….Oh and I’ll be adding your site to my friends’ list…:D

Lovely, lovey pictures!

hi! i’m another one of the unfortunate few who wasn’t able to make it to mina and tops’ big day but these pix are just so… wow! it totally captures how i suppose i’d have felt if i were there.

i wanna be like you when i grow up. πŸ™‚

oh, and i know i’m not supposed to ask permission, so i’m telling you: i’m adding you. ok?

They are just the cutest couple ever — um, next to you and Mike that is! Beautiful shots.

I’d love to see the Philippines… πŸ˜‰

Awww… I hope I can find a photographer as good as you when I get married here in the Philippines! Maybe I can fly you in… hmmmm…

I’d love to be there! πŸ™‚

im seconding kristenactually’s comment that if i ever get married, i want you to be my photographer. I have never even seen any other photographer capture what you do in weddings.

Breathtaking and so very sweet!

i’ve never seen a photo of mina smile THAT happy before. and i guess it’s cuz she’s maybe never been that happy before. but great job on capturing that ultra goofy-happy look topey has whenever he’s with mina or thinking of mina! hahahahaa.

I had forgotten until Monday that you guys were in town that weekend, too! It would have been fun to meet up with you. I’m glad you had a good time at the wedding! It was a gorgeous weekend.

It was such a great day. I’m glad that I could help to document it for those of you who couldn’t be there in person. πŸ™‚

There were beautiful roses throughout the wedding decorations! The whole reception room smelled so lovely.

I’m a lucky photographer, too. πŸ™‚

I hope you love your photographs!

She has a smile that just lights up a room.

I look forward to it! Take your time finding the right guy, because the good ones are worth waiting for. When your time comes, I’d love to be there with you!

Gorgeous, as always! We had a great time at my couson’s wedding in ST/ Louis this weekend too … it was probably the biggest one I’ve ever been to!

Those are such BEAUTIFUL photos!! πŸ™‚ Sigh. Too bad I missed the wedding, but I’m really glad you were able to capture the moment for them. It means a lot to them πŸ˜‰

Beautiful! I love the bridal bouquet!

Wow, those are amazing. You have such a talent for capturing the couples “joy”. The third one down is so adorable. I had to write down that pose to give to my photographer. I wish I could have you as my photographer, they are a lucky couple.

Oh, how wonderful! What a gorgeous bride!

The power of lj at work. πŸ™‚

These are gorgeous.

omigosh, charlotte. these are gorgeous.

i think im gonna cry!

i’m a big mina & topey fan.

your work is absolutely amazing. i can only hope that if a wedding ever happens for me, you’re the first person i’m calling. i only can hope you can tolerate a weekend in indiana someday. of course, i’ve got to find a groom first but there’s no other way i’d want to remember the day without what you create from it. incredible.

Oh yes! I wish all couples had the time for three hours of portraits–we got some great pictures with them! I was having so much fun that I didn’t even notice how tired I was until after it was all over.

How wonderful! How did you deal with the three hours of formal portraits? Your legs and feet okay? πŸ™‚
