Some shoots are more memorable than most, and this is one of them. Admittedly, being made to shoot in Mt.Pinatubo is challenging, but I said yes anyway because RJ and Athens are such a lovely couple, plus I really, really wanted to tick this off my bucket list. I’ve always wanted to hike and visit the place, and shooting a prenup photo session is the perfect excuse.
To say that it was a challenge is an understatement. Hiking and walking under the intense heat of the sun while carrying all my equipment is no joke! Pero ginusto ko ito (haha!) and this is the couple’s request, because trekking and hiking is their passion. We walked more than 12 kms, which took us a whopping 6 hours. Cardio kung cardio! We crossed rapids, trekked through stones with slippery and sharp edges, and got suburned. But it’s worth it – the photos can speak for themselves.
Will I do it again? Probably NOT! �
