Destination prenup shoots have been a trend among engaged couples for quite some time now. Soon-to-be-weds would drive off to a secluded beach, cliffside or fly off to nearby Asian countries like Korea and Japan. If you don't want to spend extra cash on the out-of-town fees (or the plane tickets!), there are many places in the city worth exploring—and Manila is a great place to start.
From historic bridges to old buildings, here are spots in Manila that can serve as the perfect backdrop for your engagement photos:
1. Jones Bridge
Just recently, couple Meyrick and Bernadine's prenup shoot at the romantically lit Jones Bridge made rounds online. Netizens were in awe as the couple looked like they were strolling along a bridge in Paris, France!
The decades-old bridge, which connects Binondo with Ermita district, was recently adorned with new lamp posts, which are a part of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno's efforts to restore the city's historical sights.
Planning a Filipino-themed nuptial? Why not shoot your prenup in one of the country's most iconic landmarks?
For a gritty, artsy engagement shoot, stroll along the country's oldest streets.
The First United Building is a popular prenup spot. Inside, you can rent Graey Studio, a minimalist space with large open windows that will remind you of apartments in New York.
From the red lanterns to busy streets, Binondo's scene is packed with so much character.
