Engagement shoots have become highly creative nowadays. It has become a healthy competition among photographers and stylists to come up with never-before-seen engagement shoots that will fit to the preference of the couple and at the same time, that will satisfy the audience’s piercing eyes. E-sesh, as other people call it, now comes with props and gimmicks, making a bigger-than-life themes; plus the backdrop that will surely increase the level of drama.

Speaking of, Benjie Tiongco has spearheaded an e-sesh that is nothing short of astonishingly dramatic. Tiongco photographed Jon and Claud’s engagement shoot. Everything about these photos is jaw dropping. Wide shots showcasing the bewitching Wawa Dam in Rizal while focusing on the couple are amazing. And how can you not love that red long dress? It speaks drama, nonetheless.
