do you notice anything in it? ya. there is ONE chick in it. and as soon as i saw this, i was like, “what the!?!? how come only one chick!?!?” i was then on a mission: to meet this “one”.

through a donor at Gentle Hands, i ended up meeting this “one”. we laughed, we chatted, we talked shop. now i have the priviledge of working with her regularly.

this one’s name is pilar tuason. an exercept about pilar:

Pilar Tuason is one of the country’s most respected and sought after Wedding and Portrait and Fashion photographers. She photographed her first Wedding eleven years ago. Desiring to improve her craft, Pilar studied Classical Portraiture and lighting from the legendary photographer, Monte Zucker. Pilar’s style has been described as elegant and modern. While she likes to capture those spontaneous moments that happen in a Wedding, she also makes sure that her Brides are photographed in their absolute best.

Pilar has done campaigns/advertising shoots for the following brands, Penshoppe, Wacoal, Jun Escario, Kristel Yulo, Tru Bags, Beverly Hills 6750, and many other brands.

Pilar acts as Creative Director /Lead Photographer for Wedding Belle Magazine, Junior Magazine, I Create, Lonely Planet , Olive Magazine and Editor in Chief to Digital Photographer Philippines Magazine.

Pilar is also the first and only female Canon Brand Ambassador.

in other words, pilar is awesome! not only is she a remarkable photographer but she is so much fun and really has a beautiful heart. i’m so very blessed to have met her and am really thrilled to know her! someone referred to us as “the two white chicks taking on wedding photography here” because of her spanish decent, her complexion is lighter. i giggled..and then thought to myself..”yes..watch out, we’re dangerous together!”  joking!! hahahaha!

in july was the first wedding i shot with her…a lovely chinese filipino couple, neil and michelle. today’s post will showcase michelle getting ready… i decided to break it up on the blog..more juicy loveliness to blog about that way!!
