Extreme Prenup: Ricson + Mabel

When Ricson and Mabel proposed that we do our engagement portraits at Mt. Pulag, I honestly thought it would be a walk in the park. Doing some research, I discovered that it is the second highest mountain in the Philippines at 2,922 meters above sea level - still had no idea how difficult this would be... After 22 hours of land travel,12 grueling hours of trekking and sleeping for 7 hours below 10 degrees, It finally struck me that this is not your typical engagement portrait! Being a typical guy not exposed to the harsh conditions of mountaineering I'm just so glad I survived the challenge. Thanks Ricson and Mabel for the unforgettable experience. At this point, I wonder what greater challenge awaits me in my career?? This is one engagement portrait session that I definitely have classified as "EXTREME!" :D
