There is no other team that can pull off something dramatic like today’s feature than Metrophoto. We have already featured this team and their works for more than a couple times, and they are still able to keep us on the edge. The team knows how to have concepts with depth and story; concepts that are unambiguous and daring. And here’s another entry that proves these statements.

The concept was a clear-cut. It is a festival-themed pre-wedding shoot for Wed and Melissa, who both gamely posed in the camera. This was an ambitious project for the team and for the couple as they braved the oceans of people dancing and celebrating the Masskara Festival in Bacolod. (This is where our jaws dropped.) The couple happily stood out among the colorful and sequenced outfits worn by the dancers. It also seems like the smiles from the masks helped a lot. The photos are nothing short of striking and could even pass as a tourism campaign for this humble province. Hats off to you guys!

To all couples who are getting hitched, you do not need a fancy or an extravagant location for your prenuptial shoots. Sometimes, it only takes a small inverted studio, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in your neighborhood, or even a craggy, hipster-like lane to get that shot you’ve been dreaming for for your e-session. These places would certainly do especially if coupled with the mad skills of the photographer and his team. Learn from Jayson Chavez of Shootme Studio who took these beautiful photos from Lawrence and Clare’s prenuptial shoot, then.

You will see the creativity that the whole team, together with the couple, has poured into this project. An unknown street in Quezon City was the backdrop of some of the photos, and you have to admit it, that street became a honeymoon boulevard. Also, we have found ourselves baffled—in a good way—with those chalk calligraphies and doodles in the walls of Backyard Grill. It makes us want to hurry and go straight to this pub and take photos. Lastly, we cannot be mesmerized enough by the shot with white balloons. It implies a mixture of cuteness and oddness.
