Prenup Marathon was worth it...
Organizing the prenup marathon may sound easy... but as Benz of Weddings at Work would put it, Imagine Nation is probably the only photography company who can pull it off. However, what people probably won't see is the efforts that each photographer placed to make their space as unique as possible... Madoka had to drive through flood and narrow dirt road to get her Porsche to antipolo, Larry literally got callouses folding hundreds of origami works, Danielle filled the van with her props for her "Ship Wreck" theme, Alex had to do get himself stuck in a dark secluded place away from everyone to do his light painting and the list goes on... these things make me as a mentor proud... its God + Passion in action. The marathon was also extra expense for us... we even had to pay for the use of venue.... and with 12 couples coming out of the 30 who confirmed, the results honestly were not as satisfactory.
The next 2 days, we received many thank you letters but there is one that stood out and suddenly made every effort and expense worth it... if i may just clip a paragraph from her letter:
"You all have blessed us; not just by your beautiful photos but also by your faith. Robert and I do not subscribe to the same religion, I am a born again Christian and he is Catholic. During your event, God moved through you and Robert was able to see the goodness in Christian people by how kind, accommodating and fun everybody at the event was. There was really just so much of Christ in everyone. The goodness you displayed had such an instant effect on him that yesterday, I did not have a hard time persuading him to go to church at VCF with me; in fact he was even looking forward to going to church for once!"
Disclaimer: In Imagine Nation, we always believe that it is not religion that will save you but the relationship with Jesus... Our calling has always been to bridge the Catholics and Born Again that they may be guided to what God's word is saying... I believe if both will have a relationship with Jesus and abstain from rituals and traditions which keeps people from focusing on the true God, then we are saved! In this case, i understand that Robert is your non-practicing catholic who doesn't go to church.
A found lost sheep is priceless...
Special thanks to Aze Ryan Ching of Christine Ong-Te events for livening up the venue with his hosting and music, wang videography for the coverage, Poses and Prints for the photo booth and Josiah's catering for the merienda. Of course kudos to all the photographers who sent money, time and energy making this possible... Great Job guys. You make me proud and i'm sure Jesus is happy too.
