We Are Wanderlust Creatives
Wanderlust Creatives is the brainchild of Jei Romanes and Gaile Deoso, both born and raised in the Philippines but currently living in Los Angeles. We met in choir, found a common love for art and photography, fell in love, and the rest is history. We've been photographing professionally for 3 years now.
Our passion for music, art, and photography compels us to explore a place we've never been to before, at least once every month. We do believe that not all who wander are lost; and in our case, we wander to learn, to experience, to capture and preserve memories mostly through photographs.
As our creativity and passion have fostered, so has our desire to share our art. We love capturing moments in intimate weddings and elopements! Our approach is mainly unobtrusive, documentary-style photojournalism, with focus on capturing scenes and emotions that are mostly unexpected but surprisingly beautiful. We also do portrait sessions for couples, families, and individuals, always taking advantage of the opportunity for travel to discover new places that complement their personality and lifestyle. We are very much inspired by contemporary art, pop and hipster culture, the 90s (the decade of our youth), and all things Wes Anderson - one will find that all these influence our aesthetic.
We love new experiences and we find that, through portrait and wedding photography, we are able to satisfy our want by meeting people of different backgrounds and different walks of life. We end up making genuine connections - with couples, artists, families, parents, kids - and we believe that these, in turn, help us capture genuine emotion, real stories, true affection. We want to get to know you; to find out where you come from, where you're going, what makes you laugh, what makes you cry, what you love doing, what you are passionate about.
Let us capture your love for each other, your fascinating story, the real you.
