There's always a first time


Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.

The eyes are one of the most powerful tools a woman can have. With one look, she can relay the most intimate message. After the connection is made, words cease to exist. - Jennifer Salaiz

And there's you and me

And of all other people

And I don't know why

I can't keep my eyes off of you

To see you when I wake up is a gift I didn’t think could be real.

To know that you feel the same as I do is a three-fold utopian dream.

Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’

Both of us, of the love which makes us one. 

Both have the strength and both the length thereof,

- Christina Rossetti, I loved you first: but afterwards your love

This was my first time to tell the story of a couple from my lens and it was a whirlwind of emotions - anxious, nervous, and everything else rolled into one. However, with the help of my ever-supportive partner, we did it. From gardens to empty spaces, we're able to share Ail and Fitz' love for one another and that's why we highly recommend that our couples should have a prenup photo session. 

Regardless if you don't have a budget for makeup, clothes, and extravagant locations, your love will shine through - trust us, because we know. In this session, our bride let her friend do her makeup and yes, it's possible not to bring a glam team for a shoot and she bought her dress at a thrift store. Everything will definitely fall into place if you work with people who are passionate about their craft. 

Please do not think that we are against an all-glam prenup session as we've also worked with some of the best suppliers in the city and awesome clients for glam prewedding sessions. My point is, couples, you can have a prenup photoshoot without all these things - all you need is to have and hold each other. It's important to remember and enjoy this moment, cliche it may sound, because it will be one of the best and most memorable day or days before you officially tie the knot. 

So, don't hesitate to go for a DIY pre-wedding shoot. Let's start planning, check out our page for more details and send us a message: Stories by J. Estore or you can also text or call us at +63 920 866 26 78.

DIY Pre-Birthday Shoot


Nowadays, parents want to immortalize every first in the lives of their kids, and photographers are here to help you do that. However, we should also consider that you don't have to break the bank to do this. 

Moms and dads, getting an affordable photographer in Butuan City or in your city can do magic to your DIY styling and decorations. Remeber that the most important part of these types of milestones is that you and your kid or children enjoy the process while creating long and lasting memories - regardless of how laidback the shoot is. 

An example of a DIY photoshoot one that we did a few months back was with Marco. His mom bought some props for the shoot and, voila, we had a cute pre-birthday shoot! Check the highlights now!

Grooms, do not be afraid of colors; this is what I learned during Joram and Banny's wedding. Adding a pop of color is a refreshing way to immortalise your wedding day, so don't be afraid. 

And it was All Yellow











The song's by Coldplay, one of the best bands in this lifetime, and the title of the song is Yellow. Yes, the song seems fitting for some obvious reasons. These photos were taken at Balanghai Hotel and Convention Center, one of the oldest hotels in Butuan City. 

As a photographer, working in one location that provides a lot of corners for inspiration helps in creating sets without moving from one place to another. And, Balanghai Hotel is one of the best examples for this as I was able to have four sets here, and this was the first one. Yes, hitting four birds with one stone is the apt term.
