One of my gifts to the newlyweds and my first daring couple shoot. It wasn’t as daring as I wanted (haha), I sort of bullied Arlyn into doing this. When we first talked about the shoot the pegs I showed her were very simple and intimate, photos of a couple having fun outside. And then the Maggie Wilson fiasco happened. It turns out Arlyn wasn’t aware of Maggie Wilson and Victor Consunji’s racy and sexy prenup shoot and video that she blindly agreed and said yes while she and Ryan were discussing it, thinking it was Georgina Wilson. When we found out we laughed our hearts out and then showed her the video. She actually shrieked and screamed and uttered ‘oh my’ several times that had all of us laughing again.
The day of their shoot, on the morning after their wedding I had my barrel of laughs again, courtesy of the newly married couple. She texted me on Saturday asking what she should bring to the shoot and I just told her any sleep wear will do thinking she’d bring one of the nighties that we bought a few months back. I was wrong. She presented me with a tank and bottom you might see a 10 year old wear, definitely not on someone who just got married. I was on my ass laughing and posting a pic of what she wanted to wear on instagram. Good thing I bought a nightie with me and then I worked with the clothes that they had at the hotel.
Photos were shot at the Manila Hotel using natural light streaming from the windows. I liked the photos so much that I immediately culled and edited my favorites then posted them online the next day. 😉
