Four Times The Answer Was Yes: Winning Celebrity Proposals

This 2020, though challenging and truly unprecedented times for all of us, still had some series of good news and new beginnings for some. In the last 4 months, we witnessed and captured 4 celebrity proposals. It was heartwarming and truly exciting to cover proposals and engagements. The excitement of the surprise, the planning, and the final execution and seeing the reaction of the bride-to-be are truly memorable and unforgettable experiences.

First was the engagement of actress Melissa Ricks and Michael Macatangay. Set in a private home in Batangas, where Michael is from, they got the help of Gideon Hermosa to transform the garden into a romantic pathway leading to a backdrop that had their photos through the years. All along, Melissa thought it was supposed to be a shoot for an endorsement of Speedster Solutions. It was a heartwarming scene, overflowing with tears from family and close friends.

Melissa’s prayers answered.

The second was the engagement of another actress, Empress Schuck, to Vino Guingona. The setting was the birthday of their only daughter Athalia. In the middle of the party, Vino showed an AVP of their photos through the years, and shortly after, he went down on one knee to pop the most beautiful question. 🙂

An unexpectedly special day for all.

The third was the engagement of Albert Martinez’s only son Alfonso and long term girlfriend Miki Hahn. The setting was the scenic Angelfields in Tagaytay. Alfonso, Albert, and their manager Shirley Kuan collaborated on the secret proposal plan. Our plan was that there was supposed to be an endorsement shoot as well for Speedster Solutions, of which Albert is the main endorser.

Gideon, once again, performs his magic.

When the couple arrived, they saw the whole crew shooting Albert, and so it felt like a very believable scenario. Shortly after I ushered them to the beautiful set up of Gideon Hermosa—and I said that it was a setup we did for another prenuptial shoot—we told them to have a souvenir photo in the set up before we dismantled it. As they were posing for our cameras, that was when Alfonso popped the question. It was a beautiful moment shared with their immediate family.

Last was the recent engagement of GMA artist Rocco Nacino and Melissa Gohing. The venue was an amazing spot in Antipolo overlooking Hinulugang Taktak falls! We were blessed to have been able to capture the gorgeous setup by Gideon Hermosa with an aerial shot! The proposal happened around 5:30 just before sunset with all their friends and family watching via a Zoom video call that Nice Print Photo also powered for them.

2020 may be challenging, yes, but it can also be remembered for beautiful moments—just like the experiences of our 4 newly engaged couples. We know that this is just the beginning of many beautiful things for all of them!
