Mention the word ‘pre-nups’ among marrying Filipino couples and the subject of discussion would not be touchy nor sensitive at all. It wouldn’t even involve a pesky lawyer. What’s needed is a talented photographer.
Towards the end of 1999, WeddingsAtWork.com witnessed the emergence of soon-to-weds having casual, outdoor pictorial sessions prior to their wedding. What for? The reasons were perfect: a time to bond with their chosen wedding photographer and let him know them and see their best angles; to see if the trial bridal make-up looks good in pictures; and to display a gallery of nice-looking photographs for display at the reception hall’s foyer. Since ‘pre-nuptial pictorial session’ is quite a mouthful, it has been simply referred to as ‘pre-nups’ since. The word’s previous legal connotation has somewhat been forgotten. Now, pre-nups are part of the services that most (if not all) wedding photographers offer.
The chosen locations for the shoot are always great too: from outdoor venues as near a Luneta, to as far as Ilocos! Even stories of couples flying the photographer out of the country for a ‘mere’ pre-nup shoot are not so rare anymore.
Since the 2007 W@W Desktop Gallery (volume one) is a collection of pre-nup photographs from twelve talented photographers, we decided to call it “‘I WILL’ a promise of forever.”
May this New Year bring each of us the promise of bigger, brighter and better opportunities.
