The Talented Mr. and Mrs. Catilo

Meet my gradeschool bestie, Sheila Juan, now Sheila Catilo. We were the classic gradeschool frenemies. I would bully her on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and we would be partners in bullying other kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We were the annoying eager beaver nerds in class! Yung tipong pinapadala to compete for quiz bees..lahat nalang ng quiz bees ata sinalihan namin from Math Bees to Bible Bees to Spelling Bees..and of course, the Bee of all Bees, Jollibee! (wenk,wenk,wenk!) She would always be Top 1 of her class and I would be numero uno of mine. Yes, believe it or not..I was once a smart kid! Consistent Honor Student and Class President pa ako noh! So what happened to me and my brain?!? Frankly, I dont know. I guess some people get wiser as they age..and some, ahem, well..ayun. I represent the Charlie Sheens and Lindsay Lohans of the world! Those who started out with so much potential then just crashed! Hahaha!:)

I was the funny one in school, always cracking jokes and doing weird dance moves. But Sheila, she was special. She was always the more creative one. She always had an eye for things and even as a child, it was pretty clear that this was a gift that she really was blessed with. Now, she is a full fledged photographer..teaming up with her partner in all crimes, her hubby Jorem. Get ready kids, because I’m about to show you some drool worthy photos by the Catilos! On your mark, get set..gooooooo!

Photos taken by the husband-wife team while on vacay in Batanes…

Here are some snapshots from the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever hindi ako biased ha, I speak the truth!!! My sister Daniela married the love of her life, Stefano last December in Shangrila Boracay.. Sheila and Jorem did such an awesome job! 

 And here are some photos of Santiago Montenegro, the adorable son of Hans Montenegro and Marilen Faustino-Montenegro. I know what you’re thinking..yes, these two are possibly the country’s most genetically compatible couple..when you look the way they do, you’re bound to have an attractive baby! 100% positive! Hahahaha πŸ™‚ But even if this is an impossibly beautiful family, I still feel that the Catilos did justice to them by capturing them in their most intimate moments πŸ™‚

And now, here’s another personal favorite. The engagement shots of Lawrence Aritao and his lovely bride, Giancarla. Hayyyy. When I saw these photos, I just wanted to fix myself a cup of hot choco and put lots and lots of marshmallows!!! So sweet and genuine πŸ™‚ Bravo Sheila and Jorem!!!

Next we have a baby bump shoot with yummy mummy, Hilary Isaac. You can definitely feel the love between mom and baby Asher! Sheila, Jorem..tama na..naiiyak na ako sa mga pictures ninyo!!! πŸ™‚ Check out Hil’s mummy blog

I would love to add a thousand more photos by Sheila and Jorem but that would take me a day and a perhaps it would be better for all of you to just head on over to their website πŸ™‚ For inquiries, just leave a message on their site and they will happily accommodate you. Aside from being extremely talented, they are the sweetest.. most easy going couple you’ll ever meet! πŸ™‚

I’ve already booked them for my future wedding, my future kid’s baptism, my future kid’s high school grad, and my 90th birthday celebration. It’s always best to book in advance, mahirap na..baka busy sila on those dates. I think I’ll plan a road trip with these two soon, they make normal day trips look so magical. They could shoot you in a vacant lot at mukhang nasa Santorini ka na! Kahit yung talahib nagmumukhang sosyal eh! Hahaha πŸ™‚ But seriously, they’re that good.

  4. geez, these pictures really take one’s breath away! ICA friendships are precious, right? there’s a bond that transcends distance, space, and time. And, patty, you still ARE talented, maybe even more so now than when you were my star in Replica. Don’t sell yourself short.

    Nice blog, by the way. — nina san miguel
