nice to meet you, i'm Yale!
a photographer, adventure junkie, and a firm believer of love!
Born in the Philippines, grew up by the beach, and now living in the mountains—you can say that I’ve been living in paradise my whole life. Having been surrounded by the beauty of nature growing up, it comes as no surprise that nature became a large part of who I am. I live for scenic mountain peaks, sandy shores, and vibrant rainbows.
Back when I was a kid, we rarely do out of town trips. We didn't go anywhere much on summer vacations. Still, I vividly remember everything we did at home because of all the disposable cameras we had. From the greenest of grasses to the warmest of suns, everything was documented in a flick of a finger. Looking at the world through the camera lens, I had an epiphany. I realized that I hold a time machine in my hands. That with every click and every shot I made, I opened up a portal that can let me relive all those precious moments.
I knew then and there what I wanted to do—I wanted to make more of that, for myself and for everyone who loves to treasure moments like I do!

MY PASSION FOR MOUNTAIN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
I'm immensely in love with creating photographs that not just capture raw and genuine emotions but also showcase great landscapes. There is something really magical—almost otherworldly—about the beauty of the mountains.
The peaceful energy and the calming spirit of nature creates an environment where one can bare one’s soul freely and without any restrictions or judgment. With only the sound of the rustling trees and the singing birds, heartbeats are louder.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
My photography style is daring, vibrant and centered on capturing love in all its sincere forms and manifestations. My clients come from all walks of life and from all over the world but they all have one thing in common: the love for adventure and nature. Like my clients, I am adventurous, bold, and free-spirited.
ME AND MY CLIENTS
I value my clients’ individualities and self-expression—I let them relax and be themselves. I make real connections with my clients—I’m not just your photographer, I’m your friend!
I believe that because of this, the camera captures genuine emotions, not forced smiles or nervous faces. Photos that capture the subject’s essence are the most beautiful and most powerful photographs of all.
CREATING MEMORIES THAT LAST A LIFETIME
I'm blown away by anything that's out of the ordinary. Literally choosing the road less travelled by—my passion is capturing adventure elopements and intimate weddings in the mountains. As a mountainchild, my specialty is capturing people and scenic mountains. My magic works best in the mountains—where my heart and soul resides.
