long overdue post: the prenup pictures

So here is my long overdue post: the prenup pictures.

I will be honest here, we were actually hesitant to post the pictures before the wedding because we didn’t want to spoil the surprise.

So it is only now. For that I am sorry.

(Of course, I did not post all of them…I just pick out a few to share. * I wouldn’t want to bore you guys.)

All these were shot by the incredibly talented team of photographers and also our friends from RealityBox. They are responsible for all the wonderful photos, despite all the troubles we met (Traffic, rain, angry/really nosy guards, uncooperative mob of people…etc.) looking at the photos, you would never have thought we were faced with obstacles.

~want to know more about RealityBox? I will talk more about them in another post. I still have to let you see my wedding photos.  *Winks!

So here are our Prenup/Pre-wedding photos!

We used this photo for our save the date and also for the photobooth!

We veered away from the usual garden prenups, and went for something dark, dramatic and edgy but still romantic because we also got locations that have been a part of our story. Inspired by a mix of Gossip Girl, Wong Kar Wai’s – In the mood for love, and Mafia. Yes we are kind of eclectic. 

These were shot at Salon De Ning of Manila Peninsula.

Next are from Ayala Triangle Garden and Makati Stock Exchange. (The place where the proposal happened.)

see the fog effect on the left photo?! It is not photoshopped! The camera lens fogged up due to the changing temperatures, our photographer used the fog to create the ethereal shot!

Day one is done! Day two features the picturesque University of Santo Tomas – our Alma mater.

*I am from CFAD, Kei is the one from Arki. – the day of the shoot, outside the beato angelico bldg was teeming with ROTC cadets. So we only have a photo of the Arki signage.

it was drizzling when we shot these

**people could not let us be… besides the ROTC cadets the day of the shoot, we also have to be with all the many UST hopefuls – they came to take the entrance exam that day!!! We went to the Med Bldg area where there is less people to take some more pictures and it rained! So we just took cover and  waited till it turned dark.

Its a wrap! these are the last two shots at UST.

My Makeup artist is Krist Bansuelo for the Salon de Ning, Ayala Triangle and Makati Stock Exchange set of photos. The UST pictures were done by Katchie Mejias. *Yes, my make-up was done by two different makeup artists, because my shoot took two days to complete (due to the different location and concept).

Styling are all done by myself. As for my clothes, you probably know about all my dress adventures in this past post. Of course I had help from my mum, sister, best friend Joanna and my long lost but now found childhood friend Eds. I couldn’t have done it all without them.
