Our Love Story…

Ruffa and Mike: A couple whose love story, was born from the love of theater and arts. We experience and share the grandeurs of drama in the simplest form of raw emotions which we think makes our photographs come to colors and life. We share a world of our own; though building it was not as easy. We came of course from two different traditions, behaviors, wants and dreams. Starting with the courses we took; he graduated ECE, while I was a graduate of tourism, both from Lyceum of the Philippines University. It might sound strange, but I met him when I joined the school’s theatre group. So from there, our little love story was born. I’ve always loved the camera ever since I was little, and Mike always had a thing for taking pictures on the other hand. Our passion was a match! As we grew as a couple, our passion for photography deepened and broadened. Syempre as sweethearts, gusto din naming mag-travel to new places. We see to it na we go on a tour whenever we can on our special days. We took photos of beautiful places at different settings and time of the day, experiment lang. Mike invested on cameras while ako on my side nag-iisip ng theme every pictorial namin, like how to match our outfits without being too traditional. Photoshoot kung photoshoot!  I’m telling you, it wasn’t all that whimsy and fun everytime, I mean, there are places that are hard to shoot at. Things won’t always work the way you want and expect them to. Patience truly is a need for this job. We would take pictures together with the aid of a tripod. Mike would set it all up while I stand for a while and be the focus point. Sometimes everything works the first time, sometimes the sharpness doesn’t, plus, it depends on your criticism. At the end of the day, there will be nothing but smiles on your faces. You both think of how much work you’ve put into it, as photographers and as a couple. Our edge would simply be our growing love for our passion, contemporary yet humble.

Inspired by Love and Life…

There is a plethora of stories out there when it comes to tandem, especially a husband-and-wife one. Some might say that a tandem needs to be parallel in order to be distinctive, for most of the successful ones are those which already live in each other’s habits and lifestyle, and most likely to be in the same boat. In contrast to all those customary stories I think our differences are one of the excelling reasons for our strength. We combine artistic contemporary photojournalism when documenting a wedding or engagement session to create images that will be refreshingly timeless and romantic. Ruffa and Mike Photography was established 2010. It is a very special seed of our passion and expression as a couple – as one, yet is being fabricated by us two. We possess a certain matching diversity which then makes our horizon more infinite when it comes to ideas and philosophies. We will be forever thankful for this love and blessing that were handed to us. Priceless and incomparable memories that will last a lifetime are the conclusions of having a chance to captivate moments, moments not only those in our lives but as well as the future people who will soon share this dream with us.
