Largest Local Wedding Photo Studio Unveiled
08 November 2005

Local wedding photography opens its doors to new heights as rags-to-riches Ariel Javelosa formally opened his four-storey photo studio in Mandaluyong recently.

Probably the country’s largest wedding studio to date, the 200sq.m. establishment houses a fine-looking lobby, a couple of well-designed studios, and a spacious outdoor pictorial set. The second floor alone boasts of rooms mainly for editing, photo album work, and photography workshops. The studio is designed to cater to various kinds of imaging, form wedding photography to glamour portraiture.

"I put up this building to accommodate more clients and facilitate higher quality services," expressed the jolly-looking Ariel whose first studio built in 1988 was too small and only caters to people asking for ID pictures.

At present, Ariel and his staff owns the highest average number of clientele, sometimes contending with about ten wedding shoots on a particular date.

Living legend portraitist Bob Razon, who was at the unveiling ceremony of Ariel’s building along with officers of WPPP (Wedding and Portraits Photographers of the Philippines) which Ariel helped put up, quickly insisted, "walang tatalo sa building na ito sa laki. Maayos ang pagkakagawa. I’m proud of my friend Ariel Javelosa."

Accessibly located at 320 Barangka Drive, Mandaluyong City, the well-furnished studio is the realization of Ariel’s dream of having a building providing top-of-the-line, complete wedding photography services. Ariel hoped that this initiative would soon make Barangka Drive a haven for wedding photography artists.
