Metro Home – Zambawood

Photographing for magazines really gets you places. And they get you there even before their readers! One place in particular that I will never forget was Zambawood in Zambales. It wasn’t only a beautiful architecture with attentive and well-trained staff, but it had heart. I took these photos for Metro Home & Entertaining Magazine. Some of these are outtakes.

For their guests, they set up a cabana by the beach so you can watch the sun set along the horizon.

This place was one of those places that I thought to myself, “I have to return and bring my wife and kids here. This is just amazing.” So for mother’s day, I decided to do just that! We gathered some close friends with their families and went together.
