[BTS] Make-up + Engagement Styling: Rein & Peter Pre-nup Photo Shoot

Entry Comments Actions

January 27, 2013 Sunday


I got thrilled when a friend of my B from work, Dewn – who is also a photographer, mentioned that he has a client who is looking for a makeup-artist. Another one of their friends, Ginel, was the one who contacted me on behalf of Rein, the bride-to-be. They originally wanted to shoot their pre-nup or engagement at Club Balai Isabel in Batangas but since I’ve stumbled upon a good venue rental for photo shoot from Jardin de Miramar in Antipolo, I’ve suggested that location since it’s also near Manila and they gladly took the suggestion.

Aside from booking me to do Rein’s flawless make-up, they also asked me if I can help them in styling the couple during their engagement shoot. Since they are referred by friends, I gladly took that extra task with no additional cost. *wink*

The bride-to-be agreed with the photographer to have a vintage feel of the concept. And since I’m one of the biggest fans of that theme, I told Rein to bring what’s needed to achieve the look and feel we want. Of course I would not forget to bring my own stash of accessories and props to put into good use.

While I was doing her make-up, I found out that this couple were already civilly married with one kid but the groom-to-be, Peter, still wants to keep his promise to Rein that they will get married in church. That’s the sweetest thing I’ve heard that day. It’s just too inspiring.

After Project Prettify and Glam-up, we went on location at UP Diliman Campus grounds to shoot the first two layouts.


Lunch was at Crazy Katsu in Maginhawa St. and it’s filling and delicious. Good enough to recharge our powers before the second half of the shoot at Antipolo.


That’s a wrap! Crazy group shots of the people behind-the-scenes of this engagement photo shoot. This one tops my list!


What a good way to wrap up a long day than with a milk tea in hand. *smiles*

I am as excited as ever to see the official photos once released by Dewn. I can’t wait!

Silhouette, sweetheart neckline, lace, beads. Dreamy wedding dress.

If only I can work on that figure too! *laughs*

My B on the other hand (I think) is satisfied with the inspiration he came up with. We just need to discuss if my look and his look will fit perfectly together. *my heart skips a beat*

Hello hello hello, people! How is your Saturday? My Saturday, if you ask me, is a rest-day-but-still-need-to-work kind of Saturday. Not complaining though. This is the kind of a busy-but-happy feeling.

AND… before October slips away… I would just like to share with you that one of my designs from my Swoon Collections by Jaycelle was featured in OK! Magazine Philippines this month of October 2012!

WOW! I am beyond grateful and ecstatic. Special thanks to Kabbie Rodriguez Alipio, Associate Fashion Editor of OK! Magazine at Summit Media for the feature. *smile smile smile*

I recently attended a very insightful workshop for both styling and videography by no less than Eldzs Mejia and Fold Canela, respectively at Schu Factory Outlet in Pearl Drive, Ortigas.

AND… this workshop gave way for me to discover this shoe factory outlet! Being a fashionista and frugal that I am, I was way beyond ecstatic to have found this.

If you love scoring a bargain on shoes, you might want to check out their factory outlet store that moved from Ayala Avenue in Makati to Pearl Drive in Ortigas, just across UA&P just last March 2012!
