Lloyda and Jason both have a penchant for the unconventional, and their unique personalities and preferences were highlighted in their engagement shoot. They were inspired by London-based photographer Tim Walker's quirky photographs, and the couple decided to incorporate the same odd yet fun feel to their prenup shoot.
To do justice to their vision, Lloyda and Jason got MangoRed to take their photos. Brothers Ryan and Randall Dagooc, the duo behind the team known for their avant-garde images, worked their magic to produce a shoot quite unlike a typical prenuptial session. The team focused on the concept Tanan (Filipino for "elope"). Armed with lots of props (sheets, a large paper boat, and lamps, among many others) and with some help from extras (who wore mascot costumes), the couple's whimsical shoot came to life.
Aside from working with various costumes and props, shooting in two locations also made the session more challenging for the team. The first leg of the prenup session was shot at Corinthian Gardens Village. The couple asked permission from the village's administration so they could shoot.
The second leg of the shoot proved to be a little tricky. The team initially planned to just sneak in and shoot at Subic Bay, but the props they were carrying gave them away. They had to secure permission from the Subic Bay Management Office, and they were able to push through with the prenup session. Despite the minor hitch, the team didn't forget to inject fun and humor in the shoot--and this, Lloyda shares, made all their efforts worth it.
