Hip Happiness

Posted by Janna Simpao

Toto Villaruel and Nicolai Melicor, both amazing wedding photographers are usually behind the lens. But since they are tying the knot in a few days, it’s their turn to share their super hip engagement photos photographed by ProudRad. We are totally digging the styling done by Tipping Point Collective. Suave and sweet, this set will surely be enjoyed by many. A certain lightness about it makes you feel the genuine affection between these two lovebirds. And yes, we are crazy over how they used the beauty of nature as their backdrop!

Enjoy your day folks, we most definitely will!
