A few months ago, I came upon an ad in my social media newsfeed of a place near Tagaytay. It’s called Loft Tagaytay, an exclusive rental that can house up to 10 people, and it has been a popular destination for day-trippers and couples doing their prenuptial photoshoots. The place is actually in the neighboring town of Mendez, about a 15-minute drive from Bag of Beans along the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway. It’s a really pretty place in a quiet location away from the main roads. Not that you’ll get bored here with all sorts of activities (Netflix, Playstation, musical instruments, cooking utensils, etc.) offered.
I actually planned to book here a few weeks ago, when I was supposed to go to Tagaytay and have brunch with “her.” Things changed very quickly in the last few weeks, and let’s just say, now I’m trying to distract myself with… well, other things. And one of those things is exploring Cavite in alternating weeks with Rizal province.
So I thought of asking Diane, a former coworker who happens to be a Tagaytay local, about doing a photoshoot in Loft Tagaytay. Without really having a clear idea in mind, we just went for the quarantine theme and let the model and the house do the rest. Doing a photoshoot is something I haven’t done regularly in quite a while now, so it took a while to really get my momentum. But when you’re hurting, you’re just oozing with creative juices. Hah.
Also, thanks to Diane’s cousin, Rhacell, who helped with the poses and did a bit of modeling herself.
