I am Aurora Gatbonton. I make a living by making people cherish those moments of their lives through my photography, transforming their portraits into works of art, and sharing what I learned through article writing.

I shoot mostly weddings and portraits. I refuse to specialize too much because working on different fields keeps me updated and makes me a better photographer and artist at heart. I do always apply different techniques and style I learned from wedding, photography, and design. That’s why we came up with this website so we all can get hitched with creativity.

The gears I cannot live without are my Canon DSLR and lenses which I take with me while traveling, together with my Wacom Tablet and laptop for sketching my ideas.

On our spare time, we help people get their website optimized and reach a wider audience through article writing, SMO, SEM and online marketing.

I am Michelle Lutero. I love to photograph people and landscape since the film days. I’ve been photographing Weddings and Portraits since 2005 within and outside Metro Manila, here in the Philippines. Now, I’m co-captaining my own company.I see myself as an artistic photojournalist writing a story with pictures. Stories without the need for words.
My vision and passion for photography has driven me to capture the spontaneous moments and details of life. Be a part of my journey and view all the beauty around me.Our studio is no ordinary studio that you usually see from other photographers. That should not surprise you because we love to travel and shoot portraits on-location bringing our studio equipment to your preferred destination.
On the other side, I love to cook. Being a dog breeder as well, we love to play with our dogs and puppies who are able to socialize as well with children and fellow animals.
