Ryan Reyes is born and raised American, has been to a multitude of countries, but now serves the country of his roots and heritage where he also met his wife in 2010, settled down, and started a family. He is one of the world's few hybrid coverage specialists with a long history of 17 years as a pro photographer and almost 3 years now as a pro videographer.

Gina Reyes is our main videographer, given the crucial task of covering the main stage at all times. Her video portfolio has developed to her own taste and she now has her own following of fans on multiple social sites. Gina has also taken the role of supervising customer service for clients natively speaking tagalog and ilonggo.

Carlos Parilla is one of Ryan's closest and best friends as well as ex co-worker at Apple Inc. in the USA. Carlos is also Ryan's mentor for video editing. Carlos taught Ryan video as he taught Carlos photography and they began shooting together in the USA. Carlos continues to support and represent Chosenbydestiny in the Western Hemisphere even if Ryan has expanded Eastward. Every once in awhile, Carlos visits the Philippines and makes a guest appearance on the team for special events.

Mark Mendoza teamed up with Ryan in California for various photography projects and soon became his favorite PA and close friend. He is now currently in the Philippines making guest appearances at events and special assignment photo shoots.

Temporary roster positions are filled depending on the chosen package and special requests are sometimes made for celebrity photographers and video specialist friends in the business.
