“The venue was perfect. It was paradise! I had an amazing team that nothing could go wrong! All the unexpected heat, shifting of location, change of outfit and numerous retouch, we all didn’t mind as everyone is focused on what we wanted to achieve and even made it an enjoyable experience.”

  • Nice! Pero sandali, saan ang Balesin? Overall, the photographs are stunning. I thought that because of the white background in some, perhaps the Ann could have worn a different color than white?

    I lso took a long look at the pool. Ok, what’s the secret here? The water has to be edited…?

  • Pre-nup shoots are just love! I have guy friends, take note they’re guys, and they were telling me that if and when they get married, they’d truly invest in their pre-nup shoot. It’s the pre-wedding days, younger years, and a moment of true love that they want to preserve.

    I love the photos. Balesin is just perfect for these kinds of shoots. I’m checking out the rest of the service providers after this – Anne’s make up is gorgeous.

    Balesin is indeed a beauty. No Doubt then it created a controversy before re its booking. The photos are all beautiful. They all speak of love, sophistication and grace. The colors are a stand out, perhaps because the architecture / background is just stunning.

  • I’ve only heard about and seen Balesin photos and the photos of the place are always beautiful! It would be really perfect to have a prenup shoot there. Only concern is the expenses since, as far as I know, Balesin is a member-only island so if you don’t have a membership you can’t go there right? Nonetheless, the photos are beyond amazing! I have to agree with Russ, Anne’s make up is on fleek!

  • Absolutely amazing shoot! I love the red dress and how it billows out behind. The blue and white building remind me of Greece. The last sunset shit is stunning. I love everything about this post! Almost makes me want to get married again lol

    Who would’ve thought there’s a property like this in Quezon? And having said that Balesin is definitely on my bucket list. And since we’re talking about colors, in some shots it might have been better if the color of the clothes were popping as oppose to blending in. Non the less I love the maroon dress blown effect.

  • Sam

    Balesin is the ultimate destination for weddings! Even celebrities and politicians head over here just to get married. I love the use of red and brown palette. It’s such a vibrant and memorable color to wear.

  • The sunset photo and tree photo is amazing! Well, it’s a dream of mine to have a prenup while sitting on a tree or cuddling beside it. They made my dream come true and I’m so happy for the couple! Balesin has been a wedding place for couples. How I wish I could be part of a prenup shoot and see the magic come alive!

  • Veronica Pototska

    Oh my goodness, the photography is simply stunning! Also, they look so happy and beautiful.
    I have never heard of Balesin, but the idea is amazing!

  • Maria Louisa Mae P. Mercado

    Truly looks like paradise. All the shots are beautiful! Breathtaking! I can’t even pick a favorite because there are too many wonderful shots to choose from! Balesin looks like an ideal place for a pre nup and wedding!
