About

My name is Lucy Manalo and I am the owner and main photographer of Manalo Empire Photography. I've had several pieces of my photographic art and articles published and featured. I am a 4x "Accolade of Excellence" awardee from WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International). I am a wedding and boudoir instructor for Covina Valley Unified. What does all this mean for you? If you hire me, feel confident that I will take care of you. Your wedding day is all about you and your special someone. It needs to be captured correctly, and not by an amateur because there are no do-overs. Let's set an appointment so you can tell me more about your day, and how I can help you capture it the way you want it to be! We'll have fun working together working on creating the most beautiful images of your day!

Thank you,

Lucy

    Growing up I always dreamed of having a beautiful wedding, I imagined how the details would be and most of all my dress, but what I couldn't picture was the man I would marry, that is, until the day I met him. And then I realized everything I dreamed about would come true! Now you would ask yourself, where is she going with this, well, I wanted to keep those memories alive throughout the years, I wanted to be able to show my kids and grandkids the day I married the love of my life. I also wanted to be able to share that day with my many distant relatives so they can experience that magical moment with me. So of course having an experienced, professional, understanding photographer was extremely important for me, and then comes Lucy Manalo, from Manalo Empire-Photography. I can't go into details as to how I came into contact with Lucy (that's another story) but i'm very thankful I decided to contact her for my photography. On our first encounter I couldn't believe how professional Lucy was. My then-fiancee and I expressed what we looked for regarding our wedding photography, I also let her know how important it was for us that she was able to capture certain moments that were very meaningful to both my husband and I. She completely understood! And not only did she listen, but she gave us advice on what shoots would work well and what wouldn't be a good idea, this showed me that she actually knew what she was talking about. She also showed us example of her work and I was blown away by the great skills she has! In the end we decided to have our engagement portraits and our wedding photographed by her. Now when the time to work with Lucy came I was amazed at how easy she made it to work with her. She guided us through the whole process, and it felt extremely natural, there were times I didn't even notice she was there! When we received our portraits I couldn't believe how beautiful they came out! Everybody that viewed them were blown away by the beauty of them. Now fast forward several months and it's now time for my husband and I to take our maternity portraits, of course I knew it would be Lucy who would be there to capture that moment, and of course she didn't fail to make me happy. I had also asked her if she would like to be there for the birth of my first child, and help me capture that special day when I would become a mother, and I'm even more thankful that she was there for me. I've heard several stories how women tend to forget their labor, and I get to re-live that amazing day thanks to Lucy. Now I know I wrote a lot, but I truly can't be happier about my choice with Lucy to be the one to help me keep my memories alive. Every time someone asks me if I know a photographer, I always recommend Manalo Empire-Photography, Lucy is all about making her customers happy, she shows that she cares about her work and is passionate about making your magical moments be captured and kept alive through time. If you are looking for a professional photographer, who knows what they are doing, and strives on perfection go with Manalo Empire-Photography, you will not be disappointed. Thanks to Lucy I am able to re-live my most cherished moments.
    Thank you Lucy
