— KNOW MORE
ABOUT US?

We’ll keep it simple + random with these 11 totally-fun facts. (You might see yourself in this list - because we end up working with couples who are a lot like us!)

How we met

We met in our hometown in the Philippines back in our third grade. Pao used to bully Dax and call him “Ducks” / "Duckling" to make him mad. We used to be the last kids waiting for their chaperones after school, so we played together a lot and pretended that the whole playground's ours. (Some people might say she still hasn’t stop bullying him, though.)

Foodie powers combined

We’re that stereotypical Asian couple - meaning, we LOVE our food. Especially all the weird food that no one else would try. (Sushi is always welcome - game on, salmonella!)

Work hard, Travel harder

Our favorite destinations? We’ll always say that our most recent vacation was our best one yet - but we went to Japan and Thailand to satisfy our curiosity around what authentic sushi, ramen, and pad thai tastes like. They did not disappoint - at all. Other bests on our checked list: New Zealand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Greece, and Italy. We're heading to more European countries soon!

Pets, pets, and more pets

Pet people all the way. They’re our happy pills. We’ve never met a dog or a cat we didn’t cuddle. Our adopted cat-like Sensei the Majestic (Derp) Husky makes our day every day!

Flying that geek flag

We love the Japanese culture and their anime. (Oh, and anime is not just kiddie-cartoons. They can be very salient, thought-provoking, and relaxing. Seriously!) Our favorite genres are Adventures and Slice-of-life. Recommendations for the uninitiated: Princess Mononoke (OK, all Studio Ghibli films), Your Name, One Piece, One Punch Man, Attack on Titan, Kino's Journey, Hunter x Hunter. You know what, hit us up for more!

Accidental entrepreneurs

You know those annoying people who say they’ve been entrepreneurs / experts at their work since age 4? We’re not those people. We discovered that we had the perfect mix of talent in music, arts, filmmaking and storytelling to create better (read: non-cheesy, non-dramatic) wedding films - but we only discovered it in our mid-20s. (We’ve made up for lost time by making 100+ films, though.)

Nature's the best therapy

We are crazy about the outdoors and having adventures. That’s why we live in Reno, Nevada. Mountains, beaches, cliffs, lakes - we’ll take anything with an epic scenery!

Experiences over things

Always. We always joke that we’re the poorest looking couple in a Michelin-starred restaurant.

An LDR Success Story

We've been in a long distance relationship (LDR) for 8 years. Dax was in the US and Pao in the Philippines. Although those years were definitely challenging, we know that our relationship's stronger (and super fun) because of them. The best things we've learned? Great communication + always making each other a priority + never taking each other for granted + making the best of everything :)

Our dream for you

We’re obsessed with our work - because we believe that the value of a well-made, thoughtfully-crafted film increases over time. All our films are heirloom-quality - an experience that can be enjoyed with your grandchildren, 30 years from now.

YOU make our day

That’s why we wake up everyday - to create epic wedding films that you’ll never regret getting for your family. <3
