My First Prenup Photoshoot

I’m happy to say that I’ve had a small accomplishment as a makeup artist: participated in a prenup shoot as the MUA. First time! 🙂

What: Prenup Shoot with 4 themes
When: September 3, 2012
Where: The Greenery at Baliuag, Bulacan
Time: 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Who: Edgyn and Eldie (Bride and Groom) plus thier friends 🙂

It was my first time to be a part of a prenup shoot. I was very nervous that day because I didn’t know how things would flow. Good thing I was with people who were very game and helpful! 🙂

(L-R) Pat, Jera, Eldie, Edgyn, Bunny, Tom

Edgyn (bride) and Eldie (groom) arrived a bit later than what was agreed upon. 😦 I had to rush a bit for hair and makeup to make it fit an hour but alas, it took me almost 2 hours to finish everything. XD Despite that, we were still on schedule to the venue. Good thing!! 🙂

We picked up the photographers at their office at Ortigas and drove to The Greenery:)

This is the Mini Train in The Greenery.

Now as the makeup artist, I believe it was my duty to make the bride and groom look the part of their chosen themes:

1. Child / Kiddie theme
2. Bohemian theme
3. Vintage theme
4. Prom theme

In my mind, each theme needed a completely different look. I had the looks planned out in order to have a smooth transition from the first to the last, without ‘erasing’ anything.

Here are the different looks for each theme!! 🙂


Photographer and Edgyn at work. 🙂

Edgyn, Jera and Bunny. They’re high school friends. 🙂 This is the closest shot I got of her with the makeup.


The groom wasn’t comfotable with makeup on but I was able to persuade him to allow me to put powder on him. 🙂

After each set of photos, I was given time to change the bride’s makeup. We were constantly in a rush because we needed the natural light coming from the sun and there was threat of rain. The photographers were experienced enough to handle those kinds of situations though. 🙂


I really liked her look here. Red lips! 🙂


The bride wasn’t able to experience prom during her HS. So this is her first “prom”. 🙂

As the night progressed, we were all a bit more relaxed. The cold air felt good and the scene became romantic for the bride and groom.

Of all the looks I did, I would have to say that I loved the vintage and prom looks. 🙂 But the bride looked good on all of the looks, I think. Don’t you think so, too? 🙂

Got home at around 1130pm because we still had dinner (a great and rewarding dinner) at Bulalo Republic. 🙂 Yum!!!

So that’s how it went! To sum it up, it was hectic and tiring YET fun and rewarding. Rewarding once you see the smiles of the bride, groom, and the whole team. 😀

Thanks for reading my post! 🙂
