It was junior year in college, year 2005, when the term BrilliantBum was coined. A group of students completing a film subject used it to call their production team. Serg Cruzem, our chief photographer was one of them and suggested the name. He started his photography shooting sports with a film camera while writing for the school publication. Fast forward to the early years of his wedding photography, he never hesitated to use the name. His first wedding shoot as main photographer was in August 2011.
Brilliant - (Adjective) of light and color, very bright and radiant. Exceptionally clever and talented.

The kind of "bum" we look up to is a believer and developer of the art, which for us is our photography. We love happy things, unions, nature and the outdoors. We want to capture perfect memories. We take time to overstate and make a mark. We are in a constant search for beautiful, artful things that we can share to inspire others. We are visionaries and we believe in love. Our goal and vision is to be "brilliant" in our craft, to bless clients with timeless works of art.
Based in Manila, Philippines, the BrilliantBum is a group of talented artists, witty and ready enough to dazzle your big day with quality service in the medium of photography. Serg is a visionary who knows the craft very well. Over the years, he has developed a distinct style in shooting weddings; capturing raw emotions — more on preserving a mixture of candid scenes, light feelings and heartfelt imagery. He is always about creatively capturing the warmest of moments often in an active and creative approach, hence, the evident characteristics of his photos: light, vivid and clever.
