Prenup Supplier Review: Jeff Galang Prenup Stylist

Photo Prenup Stylist: JEFF GALANG
Supplier Rating: 5/5
Package: Gold (4 layouts with Stylist OTD of the Prenup)

Our first layout. Clothes and accessories by Jeff Galang

* We will show the full set later after the Prenup Photo Supplier Reviews are completed. *


We thought we can DIY our prenup attire and accessories since we already bought shoes and some clothes as per our theme in mind and thought that stylist fees are just too expensive for our budget. But we ended up hiring one after we had a meeting with our photographer and discussed our theme where he clearly explained that stylists can help especially if there is not enough time to create mood boards etc We considered this since we were also really busy with work and the preparations for our flight back to Manila 2 weeks before our scheduled prenup shoot. We used to see Jeff Galang’s works as a celebrity stylist before from our researches online, so when our photographer dropped his name as one of his recommended stylists, automatically we knew we have to get Jeff.
