Marriage is so often about being on board with your partner in making the best of every situation when things don’t turn out as expected. We love the way this gorgeous couple improvised their bridal portraits when their romantic shoot in Batanes that was planned in detail could not be executed due to Typhoon Domeng. Thanks for these brilliant shots, Colove Studios!

For Renell and Lawrence, what could have been a real downer became a marvellous opportunity to have some fun in the rain. “Instead of seeing us in glamorous attire and well made-up faces, you will see a couple that’s unguarded and candid,” she said.

They are barefoot and drenched in some of these shots, but it’s a refreshing sight. None of this stopped them from being creative with their outfits or having a fantastic time with each other. “It was an unexpected shoot in the middle of a typhoon but we were really happy with the outcome.”

Tips from the bride: “The point of an engagement shoot is to capture your story as a couple in its truest form. Don’t be pressured to shoot in a very sophisticated place or spend too much just to travel abroad. In our opinion, the pictures should tell your story. In our case, a typhoon threatened our shoot but this allowed us to have some of the best moments together. So just enjoy the whole process and don’t forget to stay true to your story!”
