Love and Dreams: Summer Engagement Photos

I never really thought I’d have one, I’m not the kind who plans everything. But somehow this photo shoot turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences we have as a couple.

This happened sometime in April 2011. It all started when a friend of Danel told him I’d never use a picture of us together as my profile picture in Facebook. I told him that wasn’t true at all. And then I mentioned I wanted to have an artistically taken photo of us two. I shared all of that with a good friend at the office who happened to be a model with lots of contacts, Mary, And then we had a short talk with another good friend at the office who wanted to practice his photography, Aaron. After Mary found a location and a few clothes from her friend’s online botique, she contacted another professional photographer and a make up artist, She really took care of all the details. It wouldn’t have been close to reality without her. She said I could consider that a birthday gift. It was one of the best gifts I had, really.

And so the pictures below happened. The experience for me was new, exciting, tiring, memorable and magical. I couldn’t be more grateful. ^____^ I’m sharing these in here just so I could keep the memory beautifully in tact. The proposal actually happened a few weeks after the shoot,and that deserves a separate post. Anyway, below are the rest of the details:

Location : Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife, Quezon City Philippines
Creative Director : Mary Anne Tuazon
Photographer : Aaron Medina
Hair and Makeup : Clarins Torrentegui
Clothes : MargaritaDreams Shop and my brother’s closet =)

And finally, some of the photos! pardon the varying quality. Notice how they are very different and very similar. We were a bit (or a lot?) awkward in posing, so it’s an unspeakable miracle how wonderful these tuned out! Enjoy!
