Couple’s prenup shoot with the Mayon Volcano


Standing guard over the province of Albay in Bicol, the Mayon Volcano is remarkable for its symmetrical cone shape.

It’s no wonder it’s where many couples shoot their pre-nuptial or wedding photos, including couple Roselyn Lomerio and Joem Belarma who were photographed with the Mayon Volcano in their prenup shoot on 11th October 2020.

Taken at a spot in Quituinan Hills, Tinago, Camalig, Albay, the prenup photos show the couple on a serene grassy landscape with the Mayon Volcano towering behind them.

In one of the photos, the blurred figures of the couple can be seen with the smoky clouds across the volcano’s cone. It’s as if Pangaronon is watching over Magayon, as what locals believe. Pangaronon and Magayon, according to Philippine legends, are lovers buried on the grounds where the Mayon Volcano now stands.

The glorious sight of the Mayon Volcano that can be seen on Quituinan Hill has actually been attracting couples for a while now. Couple Myka Lagante and Adwil Lagante also had a photoshoot at Mayon Volcano, on the same spot for their wedding held back in December 2018.

During the night, Quituinan Hills is also an ideal location when doing photoshoots. Aside from posing with the Mayon Volcano during the day, the couple was also photographed sitting by a campfire at night while inside a tent. This time, a starry sky was right behind them.


Mayon Volcano is currently placed at Alert Level 1


For couples considering having their photoshoots near the Mayon Volcano or for tourists looking forward to visiting it soon, you might have to postpone your plans for the time being. The PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) has just placed the volcano at Alert Level 1 due to Typhoon Quinta. 

While no eruption of lava is predicted, the public is advised from getting into the volcano’s 6-kilometer radius. It’s called the Permanent Danger Zone due to possible rockfalls, landslides, ash puffs, and steam-driven eruptions from the summit.
