Whether it's a portrait or a wedding, I see to it that I am able to create dramatic and cinematic images that tell a story.
“There’s no such thing as a perfect image – only a perfect moment,” says Joe Buissink, one of the greatest wedding photographers in the world. And I believe him. Weddings are made up of hundreds, maybe even thousands, of small moments that will be remembered in many years to come. And my job is to freeze those moments, put them on your wedding album so you can show them to your future grand kids and tell them, “I clearly remember this exact moment.”

This article from Spot.ph succinctly encapsulates my brand of photography: dramatic, cinematic, emotion-filled, and timeless beauty. Those are exactly the right words to describe my photos. When I’m inside a room, I look around for emotions and reactions that I can capture. I anticipate the moments when the mom or the bride is about to cry.
Where did I get this knack for capturing photos that tell a story, you might ask? A few years back, I worked for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), traveling around the conflict-affected communities of Mindanao, capturing photos of people, their culture, their stories. My experience in this type of job gave me a solid insight of how to capture and present a story – and in this case, your wedding is my assignment. And I’ll present it in the most cinematic and visually appealing way that I can.
While photography is about capturing what is in front of the viewer, my unique way of capturing it and clicking the shutter at the exact moment are what separates me from the rest of the pack. My love for movies has enhanced my eye to view scenes as if I were a cinematographer. My love for baroque art (signified by drama, exuberance, and grandeur) has influenced me to shoot portraits with a classic but timeless touch. In capturing portraits, I am inspired by Rembrandt’s paintings, thereby utilizing soft, angled light to make sure my subjects look their best. All of these influences make up my style of giving energy, artistic dimension, texture, drama, passion and emotion to my photographs.
Tells a Story
Read all the kind words that my clients have given me. I am blessed and humbled by these positive feedback that give me the courage and inspiration to always give my best.

RV Mitra Photography really did an incredible job during our wedding. I really can’t explain in words how I felt when I saw the onsite photo/video because words cannot exactly describe the happiness and appreciation I felt when I saw RV Mitra’s work. Truly amazing! Not all photographers have that skill and talent. Kudos to RV Mitra’s team! You did a fantastic job! I know “thank you” is not enough. But really, BIG BIG THANKS to your team, RV. We wish you and your team continued success!
Dear Sir RV and Team,
We would like to send our deepest Thank You to your whole team for everything you’ve done for our wedding. Your team was one of the first few suppliers we’ve booked last year and without any research before the bridal fair but we can definitely say that you’re the best supplier we’ve partnered with for our big day. We’re already weeks away from our wedding day but we’re still on a high as we watch the SDE videos over and over again. Thank you also for sending some of the photos. We’ve already changed our profile and cover photos. We’ll surely keep you in mind when we have our next event or when we get asked for recommendation. Pls. extend our thank you to the rest of the team.
Hi RV. First of all, thank you sobra for being the best wedding photog! We’re completely grateful to you guys for catching the best memories of our lives. We really love the PSDE and can’t wait for the whole thing! I know it’d be nothing but wonderful!
The photos are PERFECT! I can’t stop watching the slideshow! Thank you so much RV Mitra Photography for capturing the best moments of our wedding day!
Hi Thank you so much! You guys are the best! It is our pleasure to have worked with such a talented artist like you and your team! God Bless You!

RV! Superb job by your team! Everyone said the AVPs and SDEs were truly touching and we truly agree. It was everything we thought it would be! Di namin naramdaman ang pagod all throughout the day and parang kabarkada lang namin lahat kayo. LOL! I personally felt comfortable and at ease even yung mga semi-boudoir shots hihi. We didn’t go wrong in choosing RV Mitra to capture our special day. You live up to your name and reputation.

Hi Rv, Donna and Reggie here, super duper thanks sa mga pictures and videos. Totoo nga yung sinasabi mo na hindi ka mapapahiya sa 2nd team mo. They’re AWESOME!!! They have exceeded all our expectations and ang dami pang surprises and shots na pati guests and photographer friends namin napa-WOW. Sa sobrang dami ng nagandahan sa AVP and SDE, they want to watch it again and they are already stalking your FB page and Vimeo account. Hehehe. Thank you very much and can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures.

Just want you to know that there were no other words but praises for your work. Great job talaga pare. Btw, I saw the prenup album and I think it was so nice. Do you think we can order another album?
