We're actually a husband-wife-daughter team: I hold the camera, my husband Melvene does the art direction, and sweet Isabelle, who serves as our lovely muse.
With our background photographing for magazines and commercial clients since 2006, we strive to take an editorial and lifestyle approach to our photos. We like to make our sessions fun, relaxed, and spontaneous. Nothing cheesy please. We're artists drawn to things quirky, vintage and non-traditional from music, furniture, art, movies, coffee, food and cold places like Baguio, Batanes and Tagaytay. We love to travel, too so if you want to bring us around, we'll say yes! You may find our editorial and commercial work at www.heidiaquendephotography.com.
Portraits by Heidi was built out of love . Ever since we got married and became parents ourselves, our eyes became more wide open. We enjoy capturing celebrated happiness, laughter and wonder that is present between family, friends and lovers and making these into very personalized art pieces. We believe in capturing images that will make people remember relationships that enrich us as people - that each of us should be grateful for. And we are passionate in faithfully showing the personality of the people we shoot during the happiest moments of their lives. We're not cookie-cut types. We want to make art that is all about your story - personal and unique.
To describe our work, they are spontaneous, laid back, and personality and aesthetically driven. Well, very much more like us! :-)
More about us: Heidi finished advertising management and psychology degrees in De La Salle University. And she has also went to New York to study at the International Center for Photography. Melvene graduated with a Fine Arts degree over at Slims Fashion and Arts School.
