Want to have date night at home?

I produced and styled a story for Manila Bulletin Lifestyle about how to beat V-day traffic by holding date night at home. Check out the complete story here. Meanwhile, here are some shots and outtakes from that shoot.

All photos are by Toto Labrador.

I offer tablesetting and styling as one of my services, so if you are planning an intimate dinner party at home and need help with styling and decorating for it, do drop me a line. Just click on get in touch and let’s talk 🙂



Here are also a couple of pics of the condo unit where I shot this story. This condo is owned by a very good friend of mine, who asked me to help her renovate it before she moved in last year. She still hasn’t fully moved in, but I styled it a bit for her to show my appreciation for letting me shoot there, as well as for allowing me to “practice” on her unit (she was one of my very first clients!).
