A Pajama-Themed Engagement Shoot

Alta Veranda de Tibig Maj Valencia

I know a lot of couples splurge when it comes to their pre-nuptial shoots. Most of the couples go abroad, go out-of-town, go hiking, go to the beach, all the crazy things you can think of. But as for us, (well, it's more of a "me" really) I really wanted to have a garden-breakfast-lounging-in-my-pajamas-kind-of-engagement-shoot. It's just something at the back of my mind that I really wanted to do. Of course, with our laid back and passive style, nothing could go wrong!


I honestly really didn't know what to do or how to conceptualize it. Pinterest wasn't really that helpful because the pins I was seeing weren't really what I had in mind. So you know, we just went all gung-ho and left it to our photographer, Jenry, on what he wanted to do. 

Oh, by the way, if you're new to my blog, I want you to know that I'm not a fan of taking selfies at all, let alone have someone take my photos. I'm really not THAT comfortable in front of the camera compared to other people. I was really hesitant to even do a pre-nuptial shoot, but going back and looking at the pictures, I'm really glad we pushed through with it.

Location: Alta Veranda de Tibig
Photographer: Jenry Villamar
Hair & Makeup Artist: Elaine Celestino
Peso power: Less than PHP 5,000.00 for seven people including toll gates, gas, meals for the whole day, even the food included in the photoshoot.

Some people discouraged me to go through with my pajama-themed photoshoot thinking it was weird, but you know what, I have no regrets at all. I feel like this is a little unique. I hope this shoot also inspires other people to just push for whatever they want.

What I learned from doing this engagement shoot was that I was a hell of an awkward person behind and in front of the camera and that I should just trust whatever our photographer wants me/us to do -- like a pose when he gives out directions. This also built some trust between us and it made me feel more comfortable knowing our wedding day pictures would look awesome. 

And hey, if you ever saw our formal pictures, I swear it's a Wild-Flower-Ivy-Aguas kind of shoot. We've only got 19 days to go before our wedding, so I'll probably upload it after we get back from our honeymoon. 

If you want to check out the happenings on February 17, just search for our official hashtag #MajRegRoadToMarriage on Instagram.

Prayers will be appreciated.
