    Let us first introduce ourselves, we are Marc Aviles and Phoebe Aviles, a husband and wife team who breathe and love the art of photography. Wedding Photography is close to our hearts, and the clients that we work with.

    Our studio, This is it Photography specializes in Weddings and Portraits. Our style is a mix of modern, photojournalism, with a touch of fine art. We believe in creating artistic imagery in capturing the spirit of the event, and the parade of emotions.

    Committing yourself to one person, vowing to be with that person through thick and thin, through sickness and health, richer or poorer. No matter what happens as long as you two are together, you know you can triumph all challenges the future may bring. Your wedding is a celebration of your union. Your family and friends surround you with their love and support. We will be there to document your wedding and to tell your story.

    We want our clients to be very happy with the pictures that we take. Pictures you will treasure in this generation and the next.

Santa Cruz Engagement Session with Chante and Jeff

What more I can say? I love shooting engagement session in Santa Cruz! Sharing some photos of the engagement session of Chante and Jeff last two years ago in Santa Cruz Natural Bridges. Yeah, we’re so busy in the last few years and we don’t have time posting photos here in our website.  We realized we need to update and post from time to time. So here are the photos. Enjoy!

Some information on upcoming Alamat production


  • Kabunyan washes away a once harmonious land turned chaos. A new life begins restoring and sustaining the traditions and culture of the Kalinga.


  • The blue skies and corn filled mountains of Paracelis turn a journey in search of a Makammang to call back and heal the soul of sick.


  • In a fit of jealousy, the ruling datu slays his brother. For this outrage, his daughter is fated to die.


  • A stolen set of gongs awakens the spirits and causes disorder in the community. As the gong is retrieved one by one, music played pleasing to the spirits send them back to rest. The community regains their livelihood and bountiful harvests.
