Cristalle Belo Pitt and Justin Pitt married twice in September 2016: first in Manila and then in Italy. But the magic of that month lives on. The video of the stunning Italian wedding made rounds again online when it won first place in the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Awards, under the Filmmaking Wedding/Engagement Short Film category.
The man behind the winning video is videographer to the stars Bob Nicolas. If his name sounded familiar, it's because his portfolio has already been impressive. He is the man responsible for the romantic wedding videos of Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano, Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero, Isabelle Daza and Adrien Semblat, Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones, and Maxene Magalona and Rob Mananquil, to name a few.
Described on their Facebook page as "the premier conference + expo for wedding and portrait photographers and filmmakers," Wedding and Portrait Photographers International held the awarding at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas City from February 24 to 28, 2018.
Yesterday, March 2, Bob expressed his joy through a post on his Instragram account. He wrote, "Still high from last night! :)"
Cristalle made sure to sing praises to the man of the hour. On her Instagram account, she wrote, "Amazing news! @bobnicolas just won first place against other videographers in the world in the “Oscars” of wedding film and photography! It’s a big win for the Philippines! WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) is a huge photography convention in Vegas happening now where the best of the best in the world compete! I’m so thrilled to somehow be a part of this milestone @bobnicolas. Congratulations to you and your team #WPPI #pittureperfect."
