Nothing tells a love story quite like a photo that captures two newlyweds in a moment of unspoken love. Pat Dy is a legend at catching such moments, and he shares all the romance he has seen and saved in a new book.

Out soon from Summit Books is Love Behind the Lens: Weddings, Moments, & Happily-Ever-Afters by Pat Dy, a wedding photography book—the first of its kind in the Philippines—that gathers the most beautiful and compelling scenes the master lensman has witnessed and immortalized over many years of prolific work in the wedding industry.



Through over 200 striking photographs that bear the Pat Dy signature, Love Behind the Lens takes readers through the different stages of a couple’s wedding—from the giddy engagement to the teary-eyed I do’s to the candid interactions that color every step of the journey.



To serve as examples of Pat’s skill behind the lens and proof of how much magic one photo can convey, Love Behind the Lens shares snapshots from and stories behind the most unforgettable weddings he has shot, including those of celebrity clients Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff, Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero, Solenn Heussaff and Nico Bolzico, Bianca Gonzalez and JC Intal, Nikki Gil and BJ Albert, Isabelle Daza and Adrien Semblat, Karylle and Yael Yuzon, Stephanie Kienle and Christian Gonzalez, and Jessica Kienle and Jesse Maxwell. From clean and crisp looks to dark and dramatic executions, the photos in this collection reveal Pat as an artist and professional who not only possesses a keen eye for beauty, but is always evolving in his craft.



Besides offering spread after spread of heartwarming moments and heart-stopping sceneries, Pat offers tips, anecdotes, and insights throughout Love Behind the Lens to inspire readers looking to have their own special moments immortalized. The book also rounds up valuable tips from some of the local wedding industry’s most renowned names, making it a valuable resource not just for soon-to-wed couples, but also for wedding suppliers covering photography and beyond, and for anyone who believes in a wedding’s promise of happily ever after.



Pat is a true virtuoso behind the lens, having honed his craft through years of shooting for women’s magazine titles such as Preview, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Candy, and Seventeen and applied what he learned in fashion photography to the world of weddings. Now, he enjoys a reputation as one of the wedding industry’s best talents, particularly for his popularization of the “hair down” preparation look, his ability to produce works that are worthy of a fashion editorial, and his ultimate dedication to making all his brides look their best.



Love Behind the Lens: Weddings, Moments, & Happily-Ever-Afters
by Pat Dy will soon be available in bookstores nationwide for P495 each.
