Kapamilya Snaps: 10 sweet, whimsical celebrity prenup photoshoots

Arguably, gone are the days when brides and grooms only have to only think about the wedding ceremonies, reception, and other essentials because in the recent years, prenuptial shoots have become part of the preparations.

These pictorials have been one of the best ways to announce their upcoming marriage, which further give a glimpse of their personalities and life together as the photos and videos capture their lovely bond.

Just in case you’re looking for inspiration for your own prenup shoot or just wanting to revisit the past prenup shoots of your favorite artists, you may check out the 10 romantic celebrity prenuptial photoshoots featured in this episode of Kapamilya Snaps.

It’s Showtime host Vhong Navarro and writer-wife Tanya Bautista flew to Vietnam in 2019 for their prenup shoot, prior to their intimate wedding in Japan in November of that year. Some of their pictures were taken at the Golden Hand Bridge and the Fairy Stream, which was accompanied by a behind-the-scenes video of their pictorial.

His co-host Anne Curtis made every Hallyu fan dreams like her come true when she and husband Erwan Heusaff had their pictorial in South Korea that truly gave us ultimate K-drama feels. They exchanged “I Dos” in an outdoor ceremony in New Zealand back in November 2017.

Pinoy Big Brother host Toni Gonzaga and husband Paul Soriano didn’t only have one, but two prenup shoots ahead of their star-studded Christian wedding in June 2015. The first was casual and effortless as they only wore basic shirts and Jeans, while the second was majestic and more formal as it was shot at the National Museum in Manila.

Her fellow PBB host Bianca Gonzalez and basketball player husband JC Intal opted for a laidback prenuptial shoot and wedding ceremony. They were apparently relaxed and comfy posing to the camera in simple clothes while on bed, couch, and chair. The couple went on to have an intimate beach wedding in December 2014 attended by several family and friends.

They may have been married for 10 years now, but we’re still fascinated by the Bohemian-inspired prenup shoot of Magandang Buhay momshie-host Jolina Magdangal and her husband Mark Escueta that was indeed popping in colors. According to the Rivermaya bandmember, they wanted it to appear like a road trip as it signified that they had a bright future together. They had two weddings in 2011 – a church ceremony on November 19 and followed by a garden wedding on November 21.

ASAP Natin’ To artist Yeng Constantino and her husband Yan Asuncion indeed had a fun and quirky adventure for their prenup shoot set at Poro Point in La Union. The shoot used a vintage truck, among other colorful props to seemingly match Yeng’s vibrant hair. They exchanged “I Dos” on Valentine’s Day 2015.

Ritz Azul and her non-showbiz husband Allan Guy indeed fascinated us with their romantic island-island themed pictorial. It may not have gone as planned because it rained, but they were still able to take beautiful pictures. They got married twice in November 2021 – first in Baguio City and second in Palawan.

As both of them are self-confessed water babies, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor Richard Gutierrez and wife Sarah Lahbati made sure to make their fairytale-like underwater photoshoot in El Nido, Palawan in 2020 challenging yet still magical. Although they encountered a little problem after she got bitten by small jellyfishes during this shoot, yet they still did everything to achieve the best shots. The outputs were shown a few days ahead of their intimate civil wedding on March 14, 2020.

After astounding us with their trending grand engagement in 2014, John Prats and Isabel Oli went on to fascinate us with their four seasons-themed pictorial which were shot in Batangas (for spring, summer, and autumn) and in California (for winter). They continued this concept in their wedding in May 2015 as they held two ceremonies and two receptions as well.

While these stars chose to have their prenup shoots in the idyllic rural destinations in the Philippines, La Vida Lena star JC de Vera and his non-showbiz wife Rikkah Cruz had theirs around the busy city of Manila, specifically at Jones Bridge and Intramuros, in February 2020. They had a secret civil ceremony in 2018 and then a church ceremony last September 2021.

Which of these themes would you wish to do on your dream prenuptial shoot, Kapamilya?
