Project JDG Wed­dings can sum up its phi­los­o­phy in one world: so­phis­ti­ca­tion. The essence of what their pic­to­ri­als por­tray how­ever seemed like a far-fetched dream when pho­tog­ra­pher Joshua De Guz­man, founder of Project JDG Wed­dings, started out. As early as 2011, Joshua stum­bled upon the Wed­ding and Por­trait Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Philip­pines, a pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tion of who aims to pro­mote goals and pro­grams of wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers in the coun­try–in St. Paul Univer­sity, and in­stantly re­al­ized that wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy could be his true call­ing. Fast-for­ward to a year later, he left his in Tugue­garao in Ca­gayan and moved to Manila to pur­sue his ca­reer. It took about a year when he fi­nally es­tab­lished Project JDG Wed­dings in 2013, and ever since its hum­ble days, Joshua made sure that ev­ery heart­felt wed­ding would be as pro­found in pho­tos as it was dur­ing the cer­e­mony.

How they cap­ture these mo­ments how­ever isn’t just a means of sto­ry­telling, but one that also breathed so­phis­ti­ca­tion. It’s a mes­sage they clar­ify with their clients, es­pe­cially dur­ing pre-shoot meet­ings and on-site pic­to­ri­als. Joshua re­it­er­ates, “Project JDG Wed­dings’ mantra is all about so­phis­ti­cated wed­ding sto­ries. Defin­ing ‘so­phis­ti­cated,’ the team wants to cap­ture ev­ery small de­tail in the most artis­tic, cre­ative, and fancy way. The team con­sid­ers wed­ding sto­ries as the di­rec­tors of Project JDG, [want­ing] to cap­ture the mo­ments of a cou­ple’s spe­cial day in a pho­to­jour­nal­is­tic way.”
