While it’s fair to say that engagement shoots are quite subjective – some are eager to do it, others aren’t – this Filipino couple’s sheer joy at their experience (and each other) is clear to see. Even though they were but two subjects on a sandy plane, they managed to infuse so much life into this simplistic shoot at sunny Sisiman Lighthouse in Mariveles, Bataan.
Even better, they managed to keep the cost low too. “While we’ve seen other couples spend a lot on their engagement shoots, we didn’t even have a stylist or any props. When we created our moodboard, we just wanted something light and not too dramatic, as we don’t like the overly ‘rehearsed’ look,” shared the bride.
In doing this, she also hopes to inspire others to not stress over the details of their engagement shoot. “You can get a laidback yet awesome output if you would just let your love speak for you. If I had to redo my shoot, I still wouldn’t prepare for it. It was the spontaneity that made it unique!” Thanks for these brilliant captures, Ram Marcelo Photography.
