Let your creativity soar in your engagement shoot as you get some inspiration from Nico and Krizia.

Telling your love story visually is definitely a heartwarming and meaningful idea. Your photos will be something you can keep for years and years and even share with your future kids!
Your engagement shoot is also the moment to put the spotlight on your passion and what makes you happy as a couple.

Your engagement shoot is also a brilliant reason to dress to the nines and exude elegance. Hansel and Marylou even chose a gorgeous venue with breathtaking architecture that’s reminiscent of Old Manila.
