Side Story: This is one of the first booking I made last September 2016. I was browsing a prenup peg and a find tee-pee set up really sweet romantic and cute just like a Korea telenovela. I’m not sure on how Melange has suddenly appeared on my Instagram. I just saw that they have a good on tee-pee set ups. I immediately inquired and I saw their rate for a reasonable price. Since I’m so excited imagining our prenup on a tee-pee, I immediately booked them right a way with no hesitation and no other further feedback research. I’m not even a waw member during that time.
My first ever prenup peg.
Setup and Styling – From the start, I have given to them all my peg. Actually I prepared for 5 sets of pegs on which for normal prenup session is only 3-4 sets. I just have backup in case one of the pegs cannot be made. In my surprise, all my pegs came into reality. 🙂
- First peg is bicycle with tin cans and wearing tutu dress
- Second peg is wearing floral dress and with the horse
- 3rd peg is the tee-pee set up.
- 4th peg is wearing the red dress in brown grass
- Last is the wedding gown peg in a candle light
Imagine 5 sets inspired from Pinterest are all came into reality. The tee-pee setup was superb and have a lot of other accessories around it which made it really awesome. The last set up of candle light was really romantic. I appreciate the effort of the team when they lighted all the candles manually by lighter and the wind is blowing the candle light and they were still put the effort to light it up again. From beginning to end, the team stand by with us.
As a prenup stylist, they have a lot of stuff available. They have good choices of dresses for women and as well for man which they have basic variety of long sleeves and coats available. They also have a lot of props available. They bring the bike, artificial flowers, styling clothes, extra props to set up the tee-pees, wooden signage, books, guitars and a lot more. All the things that they expect to bring, they are all prepared and brought more than what I expect.

HMUA Included – Makeup was part of the package that I got. Makeup was done by Katrina Guzon and even it is just a traditional makeup, it was superb and really made me looked good. I even hear comments that my makeup was amazing. Thumbs up to Katrina Guzon as their makeup partner.

Proximity to the shooting location – Styling by Melange team is based on Subic/Olangapo, Zambales so no out of town fee charge. The team is familiar with Subic/Olongapo area and they can even suggest for a spots which are for free. They can also give suggestion of good place to eat at a reasonable price.
Creation of mood boards was part of their package but I was the one who made our mood boards. I was also the one who did the detailed itinerary although they have provided a simple timeline. This is the reason why I deducted 1 point on their rating which I believe one thing they can still improve.
No issue encountered during the prenup shoot. Everything turn out well based on our planned timeline and all important things I’ve listed and requested was brought during the shoot.
Exceeding the set up expectation and highly recommended. Worth the value of money. Even I just had an extra effort for the mood board and itinerary, as long as they delivered all the things that I wanted, the output is still exceptional.
