Our charming sweethearts are law school classmates and they finished studying on the same year 2011. Brine was always interested with Maggie way back law school days. He admired her good sense of humor and was smitten by her strict appearance. Maggie in turn like the free spirited Brine. They became closer during bar review due to constant companionship. A great adventure was about to begin, as they were officially a couple on the year 2012. Evidently they are compatible, they both love pets particularly dogs, they both love to travel, while Maggie loves the beach, Brine is constantly enchanted with caves.

“Let’s fly away…” | Tope and Ciene

Love makes us fly! And amazingly, for Tope and Ciene, flying was not only a vital part of their profession, it became a first class ticket to each other's hearts! Tope is a dashing pilot and Ciene a stunning flight attendant, both work in the same reputable airline but came and live from different cities. While their work brought them closer together, it also brougt them apart, with ever changing location assignment, they had a long distance relationship but it never became a problem for them, maybe a challenge that only strengthened their love for each other. While others see distance as a hindrance to a lasting relationship, Tope and Ciene successfully handled what seemed to be turbulence for any relationship. And they safely landed....

Aldwin and Eli Batanes E-Session

The dramatic scenery of Batanes would make anybody breathless and stunned with its exquisite green grassland, stunning cliffs, and pristine beaches with strong waves touching a collection of boulders, astonishing structures and scrumptious native delicacies. No wonder it’s a dream destination not only for Aldwin and Eleanor but for the Team as well, and even to travellers who seek to be one with nature’s beauty and be mesmerized by the location’s traces of history and rich Ivatan culture.

Raymond and Mimi

"When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far and no one can tear them apart." That is exactly Mon and Mimi, the dynamic duo, the endearing couple, the sweethearts who have proved to each other how every mile between them is worth it. They say that distance is never for the fearful, it is for the bold, and truly Mon and Mimi were brave enough to be in a long distance relationship.

Ron and Pinky

Love knows no reason, no distance, no boundaries. It has a sole intention of bringing people together to a time called forever. For two people belonging to different race and culture, Ron and Pinky found the same love and affection for each other.The wedding was held along the splendid shore of Malipano Island, Pearl Farm Resort where the couple had their first vacation in the Philippines. The sun, sea and sand beautified the memorable day along with the happy faces of the guests. Everything looked lovely with its Beach Bohemian inspired wedding, with its charming dreamcatchers and vibrant florals.

Ron and Cha

To love and be loved in return is the greatest feeling in the world, perhaps unattainable for some but for the few fortunate couples who have experienced such happiness, like Ron and Cha, there is nothing more fulfilling than to love the one who truly loves you. Ron and Cha, had the pleasure of meeting each other in the year 2013 when their friends set them up, pairing them to become lovebirds and indeed, that was the sweet start of something special.

Kevin and Arbeth

They say love at first sight refers to the knowledge that a future love is unavoidable. And for Kevin, from the start he knew Arbeth was the one. This wonderful couple met during a Branch Officer Development Training at Makati, year 2012. It was truly love at first sight after he laid his eyes on her. Eventually, getting to know each other became an easy and sweet ride for the couple, having the same likes and dislikes and admitting to each other how compatible they are. An immediate connection sparked, a connection so strong that Arbeth was drawn to him in a way she never experienced before.

    My wife and I definitely made the right choice choosing VA San Diego as our official photographer and videographer at our wedding last Sept. 5, 2015. Val took the time to get to know us and made us feel comfortable, he was very approachable, flexible and most importantly, he was very open to our ideas and suggestions.

    While filming our Save-the-date teaser video, my wife challenged him to make a storyline which can inspire couples going through long distance relationship just like us, and then BOOM! He went beyond our expectations. We know for a fact that everyone who got the chance to watch the video definitely was moved to tears. During our e-sessions, despite us changing our minds about the locations, Val was very patient with us. On the day of the shoot, it was crazy hot outside but he and his team was super friendly, fun to work with and made sure we were comfortable which made the shoot a success.The results were exactly what we had hoped for!

    On the day of the wedding, Val and his team were very professional showing up on time and maintained smiles on their faces the whole day which we think was very pleasant. V.A. San Diego did a wonderful job working with everyone during our wedding day and we couldn't be happier. We got a glimpse of the wedding photos a few days after the wedding and had a CD/DVD of the videos as well as 1000+ phenomenal pictures capturing every single special moments during the most important day of our lives and the beginning of the most beautiful memories we will cherish forever. And for this, we would like to say a BIG Thank You to VA San Diego and his team for their efforts, creativity and professionalism. For us your work was truly magnificent. Thank you for giving us memories that we can revisit for a lifetime.

    Our wedding will not be enchanting and memorable if not for VA San Diego Studio. You exceeded our expectations we had for photography with unique and amazing portrait and landscape pictures. We cannot describe how impressed we are by your creativeness and by capturing our detailed emotions. Jeff and I were so happy from pre-nup throughout our wedding day, your photography was jaw dropping, were most of my friends and family could not say anything but just one word a “WOW” . One thing we like most in your team, you are very professional since the day I was inquiring, giving a client a very honest deal of what they could offer. Though a lot of Davao photographers are emerging and competition was quite high but without a doubt, 101% I chose one of the best photographer in D-town, with a vast knowledge of photography and professionalism that made us comfortable in front of the camera. . Sabi nga ni hubby , unlike others daw photography parang grabe photoshop, took the pictures in very white effects but with Val san diego your photographs were very natural that’s what we like yung tipong walang ngbago sa mga mukha namin… Hehe that was fabulous and fantastic job and brought us happiness seeing our pictures and video, money is worth spent for the package we got. Thank you for making our big day so special and wonderful. I can definitely say we are one of your satisfied client that surely refer you to all my friends and family in the future. All the best for your endeavor and a great success for your team!

    Alain and I decided very early on when planning for our wedding that the photography was to be a huge priority, and it was really important to us because we know that these memories should be lasting and must be captured perfectly by a professional artist. Then we found you, team Val Adonis San Diego. And you really did not let us down. We cannot begin to thank you for all the work, time and sincerity you put into our wedding photographs and videos.You did not only provide us with stunning photos, but your professionalism and attention to details were absolutely outstanding.Working with your team was truly a pleasant experience. The engagement session was unforgettable-- it felt like a dream. And upon waking up, seeing those amazing photos in Saranggani, we's real after all.We also had a great time during the wedding and your team has captured every single moment for us. Without doubt , team VA San Diego, you are the difference that makes a difference. All the guests have commented on how good you were, and now that they've seen the SDE and Onsite photos, they are even more impressed. I loved the way VA San Diego works as a team. They are always energetic and smiling, ready to help and would even go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. They have a way that would help ease the tension, and take away the shyness. As a bride like me who is not used to being photographed, team VA San Diego has given me confidence to smile it away and just feel beautiful. Sir Val is definitely a top class photographer and his team is more than excellent. Again, a massive THANK You to VA San Diego team!! We love you guys!
