Nope..we are not renting out brides. Bride For Rent is Star Cinema’s new blockbuster movie to kickstart 2014!
We were very fortunate to be chosen as the official wedding photographer for the film. They wanted us to cover the wedding as we normally do on any wedding day in the Philippines so as to keep the movie as authentic as possible. The movie stars today’s hottest celebrity, Kim Chiu and Xian Lim. The chemistry between them was phenomenal… which of course made our jobs oh so easy!
Here are the moments of the wedding…it was shot on multiple days and on multiple locations. The wedding ceremony will not be featured as to prevent spoilers. If you guys want to see the wedding ceremony, you just have to go and see the movie.
We would like to take this chance to thank Star Cinema, Kim Chiu, Xian Lim, the staff and crew of the movie and especially Box-Office Blockbuster Director Mae Czarina Cruz for the trust and the opportunity to cover our first wedding of 2014!
The movie opens on January 15, 2014.
It was a surreal wedding environment. One that we were not quite accustomed to. Cameramen everywhere, multiple takes with multiple angles, production designers prepping the location and of course the occasional shouts of “cut!”, “rolling” and “action!”. We told ourselves to block out those things and think of it as just another wedding day. Once we got our groove on how to go about it..it was business as usual for Anthony Co Photography.
Even though these were actors and everything was staged, we still got to capture moments as the wedding preps progressed throughout the day.
One of our favorite portraits of Kim Chiu. Beautiful!
One of our signature shots, donned by one of the country’s hottest star. Kim Chiu, will you marry us???
It was our time now to go the the groom’s room for his preps. We wanted a European feel and also capture it in a serious tone. The reason for this is because of the plot of the movie. We don’t want to spoil it for you so I guess you just have to go and watch the movie to understand but nevertheless, Xian Lim was still quite the most dashing groom. Don’t you think?
It was a quiet moment…Xian’s groomsmen prepped the groom for his big day. There was an hint of tension in the air…
Our groom enjoys the calm….
The many phases of the groom during preparations… what could be running through our groom’s mind…
