Spell Saab

Since I’m trying to do everything on my own for our wedding, I’ve been pretty happy with the results. No one’s bugging me (except for Jim hehe) and no one’s forcing something that doesn’t really fit with our personality. But it’s all been mostly small stuff like booking suppliers, deciding on a color palette, meeting with designers, etc. For our pre-nuptial shoot, Jim and I totally zoned out. We got MangoRed to do our pre-nup photography but we couldn’t decide on a concept. We settled on a date, booked a makeup artist and a stylist. It wasn’t until we were on our way to the studio that I realized, wait… Wala talaga tayong concept? Pero okay lang naman because I really didn’t want to use props or over-the-top production design or whatever, I just wanted the photos to translate our love. YUCK! Hahaha. S’true though!!

I even snapped at Jim in the car as we were parking in the studio because he said, “Next time, if you’re going to be in charge of a photo shoot, you’re supposed to text everyone involved the night before and the morning of the shoot.”

OF COURSE I got defensive and said EH DARATING NAMAN LAHAT EH. ANONG PROBLEMA?! Hahahahha OA!!! But tama naman siya, siyempre. But, hey, I’m used to just showing up to shoots, not producing them! Haay. My bad.

I booked the studio from 1-5PM, forgot to book a hair stylist, and it was almost 2pm wala pa rin yung makeup artist and stylist. At 1:30pm I went up to the guys of MangoRed and apologized and I was so embarrassed, you know how I am when I’m nervous – I started crying. HAHAHA! Jim was wonderful, he said I didn’t need any makeup anyway, we could do some test shots first while waiting for the rest of the team to arrive. Even better, Randall of MangoRed bought me beer from the convenience store next door. It was so funny, I calmed down and the pizza I ordered arrived. We were drinking beer at 1:30 in the afternoon – it was awesome.

Finally, my makeup artist arrived! Emman Concepcion of MAC Cosmetics is such a delight to work with! He recently did my makeup for an upcoming feature in StarStudio magazine. He told me his car almost overheated so he had to pull over! Sobrang init nga naman nung Wednesday!

Ayun na, I was saying OMG I feel like it’s my wedding day. LOL. Sorry for the lack of photos to accompany this story, konti lang nahanap kong photos sa phone ni Jim hehe.

Our stylist (and my peach) Adrianne couldn’t make it to the shoot herself because she’s out of the country so she sent her assistant who arrived 2 hours late! But since I was super kebs na, I wasn’t bothered anymore! Besides, it was my lack of concept and will to fit clothes prior to the shoot that had Adrianne’s assistant bring mostly formal gowns. Okay lang because I brought 3 casual outfits and the clothes he brought for Jim were perfect.

It was all smiles and good vibes. I remember a conversation I had with my ate Unna, my  Matron-of-Honor. I asked if my wedding gown could just be brought to the big day by the designer and she said no because kahit magkagulo ang lahat, dapat daw nasa akin ang wedding gown ko. I told her I’d marry Jim wearing anything anyway :)

So there – I’m so happy our shoot turned out so well! On our way home, Jim asked me, “para saan ba ang pre-nup shoot?” sabi ko, “…ewan ko. Pang-Facebook?” HAHAHA!! We should never lose sight of what all this is really about!

Can’t wait to post the photos soon!:)

    Para san nga ba talaga yung pre-nup shoot?

    My officemate told me… “ahh para sa visitors mo yan sa wedding day… because after the ceremony, the video and the photographers kikidnappin kayo to do more shoots as well as your make up artists or if may coordinator ka man, bibihisan ka pa nila… it will be a long wait for your visitors na nag-aantay na sa reception… so while waiting sila, may makikita sila sa projector mo”

    Me: Sabi kasi ni Saab pang facebook lang daw HAHAHA.

    Pre-nup shoot? Para sa “photo guestbook” iyan, para kiligin at ma-amaze ang visitors :) Can’t wait for the photos to be uploaded! And I believe you! Aside from the fact that you’d marry Jim wearing anything, I believe you look good in anything anyway – without any effort charot! So excited! :D

    para saan ba ang pre-nup shoot?

    here’s my answers:
    1.it is one way of informing people that both of u ay ikakasal na, para maiwasan ang dramahan like “itigil ang kasal!!” during wedding day. eskandalo yun!
    2. para kapag nakita nila yung mga picture’s ninyo sa social media may makakapagsabi sa iyo na married na yung guy or girl.oh db less hassle sa research yun.
    3.kasi sa province ina-announce tlaga after the mass yung mga ikakasal sa buong buwan. kaya ang pre-nup ay parang tulong niyo na sa simbahan sa announcements.wala namn kasi silang twitter at facebook eh. hahaha

    -eto yung mga reasons na sinsabi ko sa mga clients ko y we nid d pre-nup shoot!

    i’m happy for the both of you!

    You got me at “I’d marry Jim wearing anything anyway” and “…ewan ko. Pang-Facebook?” Epic talaga yun. Haha! So funny you guys. Seriously, for me, maganda sana kung ang concept eh yung tipong concert ang peg kc pareho kayong kumakanta. Yung tipong concert King and Queen. Ganun. Eh may masuggest lang naman. Hehe! Love you Saaby ♥

    Hi saab. I enjoyed reading your post. I just got married recently and like you we had no concept/styling on our prenup shoot. Some do it over the top kasi pang production level lang, nawala na ang focus sa couple more on the styling and outfit na lang tuloy. Anyway, congratulations and I’m sure the photos will turn out great and natural (plus MangoRed winnur!):)
