Quite the unconventional couple, Melay and Manix initially didn't plan on having a prenuptial shoot. However, photographer Mitch Mauricio--a close friend of the couple--coaxed Melay and Manix to do otherwise. The bride shares, "Mitch Mauricio was full of ideas and her excitement was contagious. 'It's to show that you're not only in love, but photogenic, too,' she joked."

With additional prodding from other friends, the couple agreed to do two prenuptial shoots, the first of which was shot by Mitch at the University of the Philippines, Diliman. "At first we planned to just do the usual things we do (bike and eat) and have Mitch along, but then she came up with the idea of putting Manix's skills to use. She had him draw the little people, then she took care of making the props," shares Melay. The quirky standees, which complemented the couple's easygoing nature, became the perfect props for the shoot. "She gave [the props] to us after, and we used them to decorate our reception venue," Melay adds.

Melay and Manix's friends also pitched in, as they styled the couple for the prenuptial session. In the end, the shoot became a fun project for the initially hesitant couple and their friends.
