Wedding photography and videography in the Philippines is more advanced compared to euro and western nations. This is a remarkable list of creative companys

That is so true. Having a great photographer husband here in the US, I’m inspired to create blogs about creative concepts in videos and photos and do away with contemporary western styles.

Reply

cruz November 24, 2013 at 7:32 pm

I disagree. I think more than anything it’s the different styles applied in different cultures. In Asia, notably China, they like the extravagant, dramatic, traditional poses. And some of that trickle to the Philippines too because we like dramatic touches to our photos. In the US, it’s more of a natural feel and even when I applied the Asian flare to my US clients, they think it’s too dramatic and pretentious. They want simple, realistic shots. A lot of my Philippine shooter friends think western weddings are boring well that’s just because the style in the Philippines kind of offsets the standard they are accustomed with. It’s not a contest. It’s just a different altogether and both are fun to shoot.

Personally, I’d replace Niceprint and Wally G. with PAT DY and OLY RUIZ of METROPHOTO

I agree!

Reply

Anna March 11, 2011 at 3:23 am

i think the title is misleading. There are other great photographers and videographers, these are just “the most popular and sought out” as you’ve mentioned. I’d say the others have branded themselves as Top, and customers think they are the best because they charge the most for their services.

Reply

marv March 17, 2011 at 6:51 am

i have to agree with anna. the title is quite misleading as it states top ten wedding photographers and videographers in the philippines yet metrophoto and pat dy are only honorable mentions plus other great names and the truly top wedding photographers were left out … lito sy might be one name you’d want to look up and include here, there’s also atty. fortun, dino lara, aaron ebio, imagine nation … and the list goes on.

but according to you, “I’d like to share the best wedding photographers and videographers I encountered” …maybe the right title for your article would be – MY top 10 ….

as you have encountered in other photography forums, eyebrows will be raised because the title is just misleading and confusing. photographers and photo enthusiasts nowadays always get a bit touchy on subjects like this and that may be the reason why they are pointing out the title change

just my 2 cents :D

i hope my comment helps

MangoRed is a solid choice for the Top 10. Their pre-nup and wedding photos of Jay (of Kamikazee) and Sarah are what really inspired me to take up photography, seriously.

elize May 31, 2011 at 2:35 pm

you guys have to understand that this industry is growing. there are a lot of underrated photographers out there. you should come out with an unbiased entry on top 10 up and coming wedding photographers because this list is also becoming like an advertisement, same old people every year…also in WPPP awards. no doubt they’re great but it wouldn’t hurt these people’s career by acknowledging the emerging great ones, would it?

I can’t get over that Pat Dy is just an honorable mention in this list. Bec. I always think of him as the David Beckstead of the Philippines!

I am not based in the Philippines but I would be curious to see these amazing Filipino photographers soar the market. I think for me to be considered the top is not based on popularity – rather the $$$ (money) made by the company and national achievement (awards) that can be mentioned. I know it is tough to get this information. I still believe that those strive for competition awards and money will stay longer in the business. This way every artist can be paid well…effort is already there… its time to get these wonderful artists the money they are worth for.

PAT DY
FRANCIS PEREZ
MIMI +KARL
DINO LARA
should be on the list

MAYAD is new and their works dont compare to Jason Magbanua and Threelogy

Reply

Ken July 23, 2013 at 11:11 am

Anne, you are gravely mistaken on this. Mayad has been around since 2007 . And they have been awarded by international bodies in videography just like JM. And since then they have been setting the bars on wedding videography. They are also on their 6th mayad academy now which means aspiring videographers around the globe look after their works. So i don’t think we should compare them to threelogy.

Reply

Anne October 18, 2011 at 2:04 pm

PAT DY only honorable mention??????????

This list is not accurate anymore! Boo!

Reply

Sammy October 22, 2011 at 1:00 pm

I’m getting married in December and I believe we hired Threelogy as well as Mimi & Karl. Do M&K not make the list? We looked at a lot of the people on your list. :)

edgar March 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

i saw videos of alt-x. don’t get me wrong, but not worthy for top 10.. nice print would be a better choice.
and i believe that Jason Magbanua should be atleast in the top 2. or should be on top of the list. after all, he is the one who started all trends in wedding videography..

Interesting top 10. Worked with most of them except for Mango Red and Mayad Studios. I am looking forward to working with both of those companies SOON!!!

Wedding photographers should not be ranked together with the videographers. kasi different yung kanilang field of expertise but anyways ok na yan hehehe :D

Hands down to Mayad Studios! Definitely the best… They’re young but indeed worthy to be on top!

Reply

Hazel April 19, 2012 at 9:26 am

Wow, this is a great list. Ngayon ko lang narinig yung Mayad Studios so I’m going to check them out as well. I would like to add though, Dino Lara is forum mate of my hubby and is very professional. He actually took our pre-nup shots in Pinas.

Reply

Hellions April 20, 2012 at 12:20 pm

I think we should not leave out “the emerging great ones” like Flickerhappy Studio and Rock Paper Scissors for photography.

flickerhappy.com
rockpaperscissorsph.com/

The two studios I’ve mentioned are creative and gives us a fresh approach to wedding photography.

For videos, Treehouse story is coming out as good for me. But Mayad is still the best. : )

Hi guys, you also forgot to mention another well known Tagaytay Wedding Expert – Mr. Eros Xerxes Astillero of Eros Photography.

I’ve been canvassing photographers for the past month I noticed Wally Gonzales Photography has a different style with their wedding album. I’m an artist myself and I know the difference.

Others kasi parang naka template na at puro naka box lahat. I just don’t know about their raw.

I’m torn between Wally and Mango Red. I’ve met the brothers and they are uber cool.

Reply

ianne July 26, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Oh come on! Wally G and Alt-X? Are you kidding me? Pat Dy and Cinemaworks are waaaaaay better. The best is still Nelwin Uy and Mayad Studios, hands down!
