Felix Clark Ybañez of Fely's Haus didn’t expect that his shoots for a couple would go viral. The couple, Aldrian Rey and Myla Cruz Soria​ decided that nothing can stop them on their wedding day, not even flood.

Pangasinan have been experiencing thunderstorm and several areas have been flooded. But instead of taking the post-nuptial photoshoot indoor, photographer Felix Clark Ybañez decided to take the risk and braced the extreme weathers.

To capture the perfect shot, Ybañez asked the couple to pose at the back of a pick-up on flooded streets. The photographer admitted it was no easy feat. He said, “Nabasa na yung lens ko nyan dahil sa ulan pinunasan ko lang ng damit ko kaya medyo blurred na talaga.”

Ybañez explained that this was his way of expressing himself as an artist. He wrote, “Ito yung way ko para ipakita yung art sa work ko para maging unique yung pictures ko.” And most importantly, he took the risk for their client and for his job. Ybañez jokingly added, “Para ma satisfy yung lahat ng client namin. Tska ano ba! Sobrang hirap nang kumita ng pera ngayon!”

The risky photographer even shared that the pick-up they used for the photoshoot is now having problems after braving the flood. Ybañez said, “Kung pwede nga lang na wala ng baha para hindi ko na din sana nilusong yang Ranger ko and ngayon may problem na siya, sana hindi ganun kalaki yung gastos ayaw na kasi pumasok yung clutch.”

But in the end, Ybañez explained that he is just happy for the newlywed couple for all the praises and appreciation they got from the netizens. On Facebook, he greeted the couple, Aldrian and Myla saying, “Ibang Level na po talaga wedding niyo.”

All for the “picture perfect shot”

This isn’t the first time wedding couples and photographers braved extreme weather condition to get that “picture perfect shot.”

Early this year, Arlo De La Cruz and Maica Nicerio from Albay decided to push through with their wedding despite the eruption of Mayon Volcano. After the ceremony, the newlyweds decided to pose in a overlooking restaurant about 12 km away from the erupting volcano.
