Supplier Rating: Jill Lejano, Photographer

Hello, wedding preppers and web purveyors.

Before I launch into our supplier rating for Jill, first let us tell you why it’s been hard to blog. There are plenty of reasons: no dsl at home (so difficult for my techie husband) yet because we just moved into our place and have not yet been graced by a phone line; busy at work; busy fixing up our place on the weekends; and we’re still recovering from the jetlag and hangover from our 2-week vacay *that needs another vacay after it*.

We went to Bogota, Colombia, for my Kuya Fred’s (and his now wife, Natalia’s) wedding. We did lots of eating – as in eating MEAT, which they have a lot of (well, cows) in Bogota, lots of drinking, and lots of dancing. The eating, drinking and dancing combo – despite the drugs/crime/third-world status of Colombia – has a lot to do with why Colombians are so happy, I think. There’s nothing that a shot of arguadiente or an hour of salsa with friends can’t cure.

Their wedding was held at Hacienda Santibella, and it was g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s.

Bogota itself was so interesting… it was like Los Angeles, Miami, Manila, and parts of New York balled up in one place.

Their wedding was intimate (120 people) and quaint, but still so romantic and fun to be at, and it was so worth the journey to get there. So congrats to my new sis-in-law, Nat, and to my brudda, Kuya Fred!

On to the supplier rating for a certain Ms. Jill Lejano.

Jill’s an artist and a cool cat. She’s also a professional, she’s damn good at what she does, and she’s a lot of fun to be around. If you’re looking for a traditional portaiture for your pre-nups, or for the old stuff that you see in your Tita or Lola’s wedding albums, then Jill’s not the person to call. But if you want fun, tongue-and-cheek, and candid – the kind of stuff that should be blown-up, framed and displayed – then Jill’s your girl.

I guess, yes, she was our “second” photographer, but that’s just cos we hired her after we hired Terry. But to us, they’re both professionals and extremely good at what they do, and we’re grateful that they shared our big day with us.

A few shots of our pre-nups in Laguna (Casa San Pablo, to be exact) and Alabang:

Although Jill took amazing digital shots (all included in our wedding album, along with Terry’s), what we really loved were her lomo/film shots.

Supplier Rating for Photographer, Jill Lejano: 5 stars.

Don’t worry, party people. She’s not in the least bit suplada so don’t be scared by the e-mail addy! She’s game for what you and your significant other have planned for your shoots.
