The Inspire Couple’s Shoot Marathon by The Inspire Initiative

The Inspire Initiative is a project forged by members of the Philippine wedding industry as an effort to give its support to our countrymen who have been devastated by the super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). This endeavor consists of four different events whose aim is one: to gather contributions and donations for our brothers and sisters in the Visayas region.

A number of the most talented wedding suppliers have partnered with The Inspire Initiative to make The Inspire Couple’s Shoot Marathon possible. And now, we want to invite couples to participate and make this endeavour a success.

We always say we believe in true love, so what better way to live it out than to love our countrymen who are in dire need right now?

Before I go into the details, I want to make it clear that ALL proceeds for The Inspire Couple’s Shoot Marathon will go to relief and rehabilitation efforts done by UNICEF for typhoon Yolanda victims.

Now on to the details…


What is The Inspire Couple’s Marathon Shoot?

We have gathered some of the country’s most talented photographers, as well as the most creative decor stylists, hair and makeup artists, wardrobe stylists, and more. They will cater to 40 couples who will be able to go through 10 amazing set designs and be photographed, all in one day. This shoot is open to ALL couples (engaged, married, or even just dating).

Where and when will this be?

Mark your calendars for November 20, 2013 (Wednesday) at the Blue Leaf Events Pavilion, McKinley Hill, Taguig City. Time slots are available for two schedules–6:00am to 12:00pm (AM) and 10:00am to 4:00pm (PM).

How much will participating in the event cost?

The fee will be P8,500 per couple. This whole amount will go to our brothers and sisters who were devastated by typhoon Yolanda as all expenses for the shoot will be shouldered by the participating wedding suppliers.

How will the shoot marathon take place?

On the day itself, couples will go in for hair, makeup, and styling. Each photographer is assigned one set design. When the shoot proper starts, couples get to enjoy 15 minutes in each set design, then they move to the next as the buzzer goes off. How fun is that, right?!

What do I bring?

Be there on time with several outfits ranging from casual to formal. Don’t worry! Once you’ve reserved a slot, the styling team will give you full details on how to go about wardrobe.

How many couples can join?

We are only opening this to 40 precious slots. Since slots are limited, we suggest that you sign up as soon as you can!

So I want to join, what do I do?

  1. Register here:
    • Once the maximum number of slots are reached per schedule (AM/PM), succeeding registrations will be placed on the wait list.
  2. If there is still an available slot for you, you will receive a slot confirmation email. This will contain payment details and other information.
    • Payment options are BPI or BDO deposit, and credit card via PayPal.

  1. Quite envious for the couples that was able to join. Do you plan on having another one, but on weekend? 🙁 We really want to do this since the proceeds also go to the Yolanda victims.

    1. Hi Camille. Sorry, this is going to happen once only. Weekends are usually booked for weddings so wedding suppliers aren’t available, that’s why we chose to do this on a weekday. But we’ll be announcing some other ways to help, so watch out for that!

      1. Hi Janna, thank you for the feedback. We’ll be waiting for that. I think I accidentally sent a draft email regarding this inquiry, as well. Please ignore that. Thanks!
