Kudos to Our Prenup Suppliers!

I'm happy to say that we have finally received our official prenup photos from our photographer Project Happiness. Whee! I really love our photos; I actually had to restrain myself from sharing all of them here before our wedding. Nalo-low EQ talaga ako, promise. But for the purpose of writing our prenup suppliers' ratings, I'll let you have a sneak peek on some of our photos. Hehe.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: Project Happiness (formerly Osep&Mimi Photography)
Peso Power: Included in our photo package, but added P1,000 for the OOT fee
Contact Details: 0927-8053493
Rating: 4.5 out of 5

As you all know, Osep&Mimi was the first supplier that I booked. I was really excited to work with them for our prenup and wedding, but then, I heard that Osep and his girlfriend/business partner Mimi broke up. I was so worried that their whole business would go down as well. I was actually THIS close to looking for other photographers, but I decided to  wait for our prenup and see whether I'll stick with them or not.

But as soon as we started our prenup shoot with Osep and his new partner Chris, I knew that sticking with them would be the right choice! We weren't models, but we didn't have a hard time posing during the shoot. Osep made us very comfortable in front of the camera, and since we are not fans of super-cheesy poses, he directed us on poses that were fierce and astig. Haha! Plus, he was so game to do some buwis-buhay shots. Walang ka-ere ere sa katawan!

Our prenup photos also came with 40 4R-size prints, which were originally not included in our photo package. So those prints were definitely a pleasant surprise. By the way, here are some of my favorite shots. Grabe, mukha kaming mga models! Haha!











I had to give Project Happiness minus points though because I had a hard time contacting Osep during the planning of our prenup. Also, it took a long time for him to send our prenup pics, even though he already promised us that he would send them immediately. Of course, I understand that he is in the middle of fixing all the loose ends with Mimi, but that is definitely one negative point against him.

PRENUP STYLIST: Aira Franco
Peso Power: P7,000 (old rate)
Contact Details: aira@airafranco.com

Since this is our official prenup, I decided to splurge a little and get Aira Franco as our prenup stylist. During my meeting with her, she suggested a lookboard that was more hipster than her usual bohemian looks. I was a bit nervous yet excited because it was so different from our usual getup. Can you imagine, she was able to get Mox to wear boots! Nakakatuwa!

At first I thought she was the usual kikay stylist, but she was the complete opposite. Cowboy na cowboy siya! In fact, she and Mox got along pretty well because they both have the same interests: skateboarding and surfing. Ako pa ang na-OP sa kanila. Haha.

During our shoot, she really took care of us, making sure that we weren't tired, hungry or hot. She carried our bags all the way to our next location and even helped me go down the big white rocks  near the dam just so I wouldn't slip. She was our ever-reliable personal assistant that day. :)

One thing I really liked about her was that she makes sure we always look great in the photos. I remember one instance when I was sitting on the ground wearing my ultra-short shorts, Aira went over to position my bag in front of me, just so my elephant-like thighs would be covered. Panira kasi sa picture eh. Haha

PRENUP HMUA: Boombee Bartolome
Peso Power: Included in Aira Franco's package
Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Aira's styling package also came with free on-site prenup hair and makeup, so we didn't have to worry about booking a prenup HMUA. At first, I thought our HMUA would be Fritz Mortel, Aira's usual partner, but it was Boombee who was assigned to us that day.

I love her makeup on me; I looked so fresh and radiant! She was also ready with her pack of tissues and her retouch bag to make sure we were always pretty and handsome at all times. :) But I can't give her a perfect score because my head hurt from all the pulling and combing during our shoot.

VENUE: Wawa Dam, Montalban
Peso Power: P1,300 (for permits) and P1,000 (for miscellaneous fees)
Rating: 4 out of 5

Who knew that a place as beautiful as this one is only an hour away from my house? Even Osep and Aira were in awe of the beauty of Wawa Dam. They kept on asking me how I found about it. The lighting was absolutely perfect! Even at three in the afternoon, the sunlight was soft and not so harsh.

The people in Wawa Dam were also very helpful, from the barangay officials to the tour guides. The guide assigned to us led us to some of the more picturesque spots in the dam, and helped us haggle with some of the locals

What I didn't like about the place was that everything you do has a price, literally! One time, we had to cross a wooden bamboo bridge to get to the other side, and we were asked to pay P5 per person! Grabe lang. Of course, even with all those "hidden" fees, Wawa Dam is still relatively cheaper than the other prenup venues, so it's all good. Isipin na lang natin na tulong na natin iyon sa kanila. :)
