Our Bacolod Wedding – Pre-nup Behind the Scenes

Prenup shot by Vinz

When Quennie and I announced that we are getting married, Vinz and Jery started to offer the idea of shooting the pre-nup pics for us.  Quennie and I didn’t have a pre-nup included in our wedding photo package so their offer was welcomed.  They are even willing to go to Bacolod to shoot the pre-nups and our wedding as well.

Vinz, Jery and I took the same flight to Bacolod last April 15, five days before the wedding.  My father fetched us from the airport and instantly we scouted for locations of the shoot.

The locations I had in mind are those that will show something about my hometown or about Negros in general.  The first idea were the ancestral houses in Silay or the Capitol Building in Bacolod.  Then, take shots at our place in Pontevedra.  However, moving from Silay to Pontevedra in one day will be a waste of time.  So we ended up looking for locations just in Pontevedra.

We wanted to take pics near the residense of the Conjuancos.  However, we were not able to get any permission.  Thus we ended up looking for locations just along the road.  I was able to familiarize myself with the area after having a runabout last January.   Thus, the next day, we set off early to take the pictures.

The Bridge

The Old Marayo Bridge

The Old Marayo Bridge. I took this shot during my runabout last January.

The bridge is the old Marayo Bridge of Pontevedra.  It really looks old with grass and bushes that wander around the place.  Below it is a strong river where some kids and adults go for a swim to cool down the sumer heat.  I thought it was a nice place to take the pictures.  We all agreed.

The blue bike was owned by a kid who was swimming at the river below the bridge.  It was just there when we arrived and thought it is a great prop for the shot.

What is not visible in the picture are the people lurking around the area.  There are about 20 or more people who are looking over from the new bridge just beside it.  This posed some problems to Vinz and Jery as they try to get a shot that will not include them.

The funny thing is how motorists will even stop and make a 180 degree turn to see the commotion.  They they will ask.  “Ano ara da?“.  To which the others will reply. “May shooting a.

The Highway and Sugarcanes

The next location is the highway going to La Carlota.  It was just any other road.  But the yellow railings on the side provide a good contrast to the surroundings and Jery wanted a shot with the sugarcanes nearby.

Again, passersby will take a peep and a fully loaded tricycle was broken and they are watching from a distance.  Jery and Vinz and a hard time avoiding them in their shots.

Vinz took this picture.  Notice the bunch of people in the foreground.  There were there the whole time since their tricycle broke down.

Jery loved taking pictures sa damohan.  This shows a large sugarcane plantation and were were standing near the sidewalk.

Cho-cho Train

Moving towards La Carlota, you wont miss the train that is placed just beside the road before you enter the city.  It’s an old train used to transport the sugarcanes from the fields to the central.   I haven’ t seen one in operation but they said that newer trains still operate near the central.

This is my photo of the train as seen from the road during my runabout last January.

Another take by Jery.  This is a diffult pose for me as I have to stretch my neck to get a kiss.

Vinz shot looks seductive.  Quennies pose can set this train on fire.

Sunset

From the train in La Carlota,  we had to rush to the seaside to catch the sunset.  Unfortunately, we didn’t make it in time and the clouds over the horizon spoiled the scene.  But still, Vinz and Jery nailed great photos with the colors of the sunset as the backdrop.

Kissing shot from Vinz.  The reason why I love this location is that I got to get a lot of shots and takes kissing Quennie.  Hehehe.
