We love Joe and Chok Manalo's prenup photos because they're fun, unusual, and reflect the couple's penchant for traveling.
Joe and Chok toyed with the idea of shooting in an airport--and decided that the country's newest terminal, NAIA Terminal 3, was just the perfect location for their concept! Luckily, the father of one of their friends was then one of the higher-ranking officers at the Manila International Airport Authority. Joe and Chok simply wrote a letter of request addressed to the dad's office, and since their shoot was for personal use, they were granted access to most areas of NAIA Terminal 3.
While their concept to shoot in an airport was already cool enough, their photographer, Oly Ruiz, took the idea a step further. Days before the shoot, Oly asked the couple to craft paper airplanes which would serve as props for the shoot. With such colorful planes to play with, Joe and Chok let their carefree and easygoing personalities take over. The result was a one-of-a-kind shoot with an edgy, fun vibe that made their prenuptial session the air of a fashion spread.
