H+G Engagement Shoot.



Prenup shoots are not easy. Seriously. Hans and I almost fought (well, I think we actually did! Haha!) the day of our engagement shoot. We were driving each other crazy, with all the props and costume that we had to prepare. It was phenomenal. I was literally holding back my tears inside the car (I had to hold them because I had my makeup on and I didn’t wanna ruin my face! Haha).

But hey, what are wedding preparations without the ‘pre-wedding fight’, right? 😀

I have to say that shoots become easier with friends by your side. We would never have survived that day without the help of our friends! And most importantly, prenup shoots become less stressful if you have an awesome photographer to shoot you. (Wink,wink!)

Erwin Leyros is one of the coolest photographers I have worked with. He’s not the usual ‘look in the camera-smile-hug-kiss-photographer’.  He shies away from the typical. He has his own style.

Here’s a brief description of him which I copied from his blog:

Every moment means something. Every couple have their different story and personality. I believe that each smile, tear, excitement, joy and happiness is priceless. Each image conveys a heartfelt moment filled with emotion. It is my passion to tell your story so you can relive it through your photographs and cherish your best moment forever.

I love natural light, it gives me more freedom to my images. As much as possible I don’t use speedlights, we are constantly surrounded by beautiful light, it is important to learn and see it. I love creamy background blur and film look. Simple is beautiful.

I capture real moments. I offer eccentric style and portraits. It is an art for me. I don’t direct weddings except during pictorials, it will always be the groom, the bride and the people around them who will write their own story. Your event is about you and your special day.

It is always my pleasure and honour every time I heard couples satisfied and very happy with my work. This has been one of my inspirations to get better and better with my craft.

I love what I’m doing and I am very passionate and committed with my craft.

Here are our prenup photos, whoopteedoo! My siblings were reminding me not to pose them prior to the wedding to still have the element of surprise. Tee-hee.
