The Wedding Photography of Everything



What Clients Say About Us


I wanted to have the best photographer for my wedding and I have no one in mind but Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto…

I’m a sucker for good pictures. After my fiance proposed to me, my top priority for our wedding was the photos. I wanted to have the best photographer for my wedding and I have no one in mind but Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto. I can still vividly remember our first conversation over the phone, he was so accommodating and friendly. And the first time we met, his innate ability to get along so well with people made us “click” instantly. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Oly from start to finish. We enjoyed every single crazy and happy moment with him during our prenup session in Cebu. He is the epitome of elegance and professionalism. Aside from him having a keen eye for great shots, he has this tendency to work and create something beyond his bride’s expectations. He will always want what is best for his clients, nothing less. Our prenup and wedding photos turned out so beautiful, that my husband and Iwould watch it every night before we go to sleep. We are grateful for having Oly as part of our wedding team. His incredible personality, as well as his great photos, made the entire wedding experience truly memorable for us!

Overall, Oly is an extremely talented photographer. I would have no hesitation in hiring him again, and would heartily recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day.

He finds unique ways of making a dull or a commonly photographed scene look amazing.

We were initially intimidated with Oly’s signature style because of how unconventional it looks and we were not used to pictorials. But come to think of it, why would we want our photos to look so ordinary that almost every wedding photographer can copy? Oly assures that every photo he takes is well thought of and executed flawlessly. He finds unique ways of making a dull or a commonly photographed scene look amazing.

The first time we met Oly was during our pre-wedding shoot and we instantly felt very comfortable with him. We felt like we already knew each other from a while back. His effort was immeasurable and his team was outstanding, sacrificing themselves under the scorching sun and even ran up and down the slopes just to get perfect shots. Oly gave clear instructions on how to pose, making sure that his subjects were not left clueless on what to do. We loved Oly so much that we always recommend him to everyone we know who, in turn, all have the same feedback about their one-of-a-kind Metrophoto experience. He has also now become our go-to family photographer.

None of the other photographers we have worked with, can compare to Metrophoto and the quality of photos they produced

A wedding can definitely be overwhelming and as a bride, the whole day just passes by so quickly. This is true, for me at least. That is why it is important to get a good photographer to capture every single moment. Because the photos are the best kept memories of your special day. Metrophoto did an absolutely amazing job photographing our pre-wedding photos and our civil wedding ceremony in Manila. They definitely exceeded our expectations. We were first introduced to them because they did my brother’s wedding a year before, and my husband and I were blown away by their photos. I remember calling up Oly the next day and telling him that we wanted to do our pre-wedding photos with him and from the very beginning, Oly was fantastic, professional and extremely helpful with everything. He helped us brainstorm pre-wedding concepts and answered all our questions. He was so patient with us and no matter how busy he was, he always managed to find time to communicate with us. No words can describe how exceptional all the photos turned out, they are well thought of and shot perfectly. Oly and his team really did a very good job in capturing our special day in such a way no one else could have. My husband and I are very happy with all of the photos. My husband and I have worked with other wedding photographers as we had two wedding receptions, one in Manila and one in Hong Kong and up until this day, I have regretted my decision on not getting Metrophoto for my wedding reception in Hong Kong. None of the other photographers we have worked with, can compare to Metrophoto and the quality of photos they produced. I would without hesitation highly recommend Metrophoto to anyone, not just couples.

Still Having Second Thoughts?


He really has an eye for making an otherwise ugly-looking locationHe really has an eye for making an otherwise ugly-looking scene look so beautiful… look so beautiful…

During our wedding, our number 1 non-negotiable supplier was Oly of Metrophoto. I would move our wedding date to make sure he’s available to be our photographer. I love his style of taking pictures, its very dramatic and usually from an angle no one has seen before. I remember while we were doing our prenup shoot in Palawan, there was a typhoon, and all our planned layouts were basically a bust. He saw a swamp in our hotel, and told me we will be shooting there, I looked at the swamp and I told him “are you joking?” He set up a hammock in the swamp and when I saw the shots, they became my favorite. He really has an eye for making an otherwise ugly-looking location look so beautiful. And even though we were basically shooting in the middle of a storm, he never complained and just encouraged us to shoot through the rain.

I was worried about was my husband because he doesn’t know how to pose. But all my worries were for nothing, cause on the first day of our shoot, Oly chatted my husband up and made him feel very at ease. So by the time we were shooting our layouts, he looked so natural in front of the camera. Oly would just say “whisper something at her ear or touch her cheek” and he’ll click away and the pictures looked so amazing. Naturally, our wedding photos were also a breeze to shoot and they were absolutely beautiful.

Metrophoto's Works Are Always Beyond Your Expectations...

Working with Oly of Metrophoto is not just all about work, we all know that he gives his 100% all the time. It's the friendship that I appreciated the most. Back then, when we were not yet introduced, I see people drawn to him all the time. Now I know why, it's because he is not just a good photographer, but also a good friend. There are a lot of good photographers out there but not all will become your friend.

To be honest, Oly is really one of the most creative person I know. He never ran out of new ideas. His work is always beyond my expectations. That's why when one of my friend was looking for a photographer for their wedding, I got my phone and showed the couple my pictures. Following day, he already booked Oly. Need I say more?
