I am so excited to share this post today, 10 things you probably didn't know about Justin! He is my husband and the man behind our wedding edits! It was so fun to come up this list of facts about Justin. It all just makes me love him even more!
1. HE IS A TWIN.
Bet you didn't know that! Justin and his brother and were born around midnight, so they actually have separate birthdays. I know, pretty unique right? His twin brother, Julius, was born first on August 15th and Justin came soon after just after midnight on August 16th!
2. HE IS HALF FILIPINO.
That's right! Justin's dad is full Filipino and came to the US when he was just 16 years old. His mom is Irish, so that is where he gets the brown hair and freckles from! One of Justin's favorite meals is Pansit, a traditional Filipino dish!
3. HE IS A FAN OF SOUR CANDY.
He's got a sour tooth! Sour Patch Kids is probably his favorite, or those sour candy straw things... he loves it all!
4. HE LOVES VIDEO GAMES.
You name it, he has probably played it! When he is not editing a wedding film, you can most likely find him on the computer playing one of his computer games until very late at night!
5. HE WORKED WITH TAYLOR SWIFT.
Ahhhhhhhh! He was the on-set editor for Taylor Swift's music video, Blank Space! It was a couple day shoot at Oheka Castle and he basically put the edit together on set as they were shooting. He worked along side director, Joseph Kahn. And long story short, the picnic scene in the music video where Taylor's boyfriend is on the cell phone, that is actually his cell phone! You'll have to ask him to tell you full story, I promise its a good one!
6. HE LIVED IN LA FOR 6 MONTHS.
Soon after Justin graduated from college, he received a really cool opportunity to live and work in LA with legendary music video editor, Dustin Robertson! He worked on music videos for Mariah Carey and Katy Perry to name a few! And he actually lived right on Melrose Ave where he could see the Hollywood sign from his bedroom!
7. HE WAS HIT BY A CAR IN 2ND GRADE.
Okay, so I know this is totally not something you were expecting to read! Thankfully Justin is okay and nothing too serious happened. It could have been a lot worse. This happened when Justin was only in 2nd grade, he was playing outside with his friends and ran across the street to get the ball and that was when the car hit him. He was unconscious for few minutes and they took him to the hospital and praise the Lord, it was nothing serious and he didn't even break any bones!
8. HE WAS ACTUALLY A CAT PERSON BEFORE WE HAD A DOG.
I remember always going over to Justin's house in high school and seeing his cat Goober! He loved that cat and pretty sure he was the cat's favorite! Surprisingly, he was never really a big fan of dogs. But after we started living together and I begged him for a dog and now he loves them! Our dog is basically our baby!
9. HE LOVES MEALS IN A BOWL.
Some of Justin's favorite meals come in one big bowl. Soup, stews, salads or basically anything he can mix up together... he loves! One of his favorite meals I make him is meatball stew!
10. HE PLAYS GUITAR FOR FUN.
Pretty much all of Justin's family has a natural talent for music. They all just have a very good ear for beats and music. This is probably what makes Justin so good at mixing the audio and music for our wedding films! Justin's dad plays the guitar and drums and both Justin and his twin brother play the piano and guitar!
