PRENUP THEMES UP FOR GRABS
1. Medieval Theme
2. Spanish Era
3. Modern Glamour
4. Computer Game theme ex. Lara Croft, Resident Evil theme
5. 4 Seasons theme
1. We suggest the couple to sleep early – Prenup pictorial is tiring, we capture prenup the whole day specially those have concepts. You need a lot of energy so you need at least 8 hours of sleep
2. Bring Bottled Water – with proper hydration, you can easily think fast and will avoid some headaches due to heat.
3. Bring a Personal Assistant – bringing with you a personal assistant is a big convenience (a relative or a house member will do) , he/she can carry and protect your Bag, Clothes, Water etc. during our shoot
4. Cut your finger nails / Nail Art – sometimes couples are too busy specially the groom, cut your finger nail before the schedule prenup, we capture in detail, you don’t want to see dirt on finger nails during some cheezy moments, like holding hands, hands on shoulders and etc. For the bride, we suggest to put sa simple nail polish with color motif or any neutral color that will match to the clothes that you will be wearing. A nail art or design is superb.
5. Proper clothing for the theme – In Gian and Fidji’s studio, we already talked about this on Pre-shoot meeting. All clothing and props must be ready and complete on the day of the prenup. there will be an added impact to the theme if proper clothing/props are applied. ex. How do you become Luke Sky Walker if you don’t have the proper costume and accessories? / How do you become HULK if you’re not green.
6. Be creative on Choosing Props – Props production is very expensive specially if you want a unique prenup theme, we suggest if you can improvise, borrow and use what is available to help establish the desired theme. You don’t have to buy if you don’t have a budget, use your creativity or contact your friends if they can help you.
7. Clothes – you don’t have to buy as well, you can borrow or rent
8. Makeup Artist – We suggest to have your makeup before going to the agreed prenup pictorial time. Photoimagicraft by Gian and Fidji has a Makeup department, Coloura™ ART by Gian and Fidji. A traditional makeup will cost you P2,000.00 (MAC/KRYOLAN) for the whole day (exclusive for gian and fidji clients only) including retouches. for Airbrush and Theatrical Makeup please contact Gian and Fidji.
For those who requested some sample photos of each locations.. Here’s some of our works.
I’ll try to find them on our archives as well. Thanks for Visiting Photoimagicraft by Gian and Fidji
VILLA CRISTINA, Antipolo
A Top View Shot by me at Villa Christina Resort, Antipolo – I love the pine tree here, it gives a different setting.. looks like shot in Tagaytay but in Antipolo, It’s up to your photographer on how he will maximize the area where you will be shooting.
My favorite theme park to shoot, Make sure your photographer is low light camera and lens capable and able to use wireless strobes for that magical feel!
here are some snaps by me and my wife. for more photos visit this page: Ryan and Rochelle’s Enchanted Kingdom
MMLDC, Antipolo City
For the price of P1,500.00 it is already a steal, Drive away to Antipolo!, It’s also up to your Photographer and Concept to maximize MMLDC.
Here are some samples shot by me and my wife, to view more photos Click here: Mike and Ira’s MMLDC
PICNIC GROOVE, Tagaytay City
YOUR SCHOOL = YOUR ALMA MATER
Either you met on your grade school years or you love your school so much :) We’ve shot this couple on their school, because they met there in Grade School.
here are some snaps by me and my wife. Not an easy execution, this will depend on you and your photographer’s concepts, maximize the school’s important highlights and favorite location :) Turn back time! :)
THE LAMESA ECO PARK, Quezon City
Well this is the most photographed park located in Quezon City. Some Photographers may say “GAS GAS NA”, but this location is very helpful for us, specially those couples that doesn’t want to go far. Ecopark Fused with a nice concept is great. I cant even count or remember the numerous prenups that we photographed here :) here are some snaps by me and my wife.
THE LAKESHORE, Pampanga
An hour drive from Balintawak to NLEX.. must have been shorter if there are no speed radar detectors :), Here’s a nice venue for prenups and music video shoot as well.
here’s a teaser debut video of Arianne by me and my wife. There are no restaurants within lakeshore, you need to go to the nearest petron station.. you don’t need to
go out of the free way again, just ask directions from the guard or the receptionist.
here are some prenup photos
You will find great locations here. Either historical or Themed prenup like Chinese love stories like this photo that we’ve shot in Ongpin.
