The real-life couple channeled Old Hollywood romance on and off cam.

Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati were a bit shy to show some PDA on screen, but after spending a day with the couple, we realize there's only one word to describe their real-life romance: dreamy. 

After a two-hour drive to Airtaxi.ph's Private Terminal at the Asian Aerospace FBO Facility in Clark, Pampanga, we set out to taxi a luxury jet unto the runway while Richard and Sarah got ready. Both actors were insanely beautiful, warm, friendly, and surprisingly funny. Also, the chemistry they have is enviable. And despite the cloudy weather (it was humid and hot all throughout the day), not once did they complain. Even Richard, who had a late night taping for his prime time show La Luna Sangre, was all smiles and enthusiastic. 

Apart from the news of their engagement, below are some BTS pics from our cover shoot; scroll down and see the romance that unfolded on the set.

Airtaxi.ph's luxury jet was the center of attention that day. We asked the staff to pull it out of the hanger just for the shoot!

Richard always found ways to make Sarah laugh or smile throughout the shoot.

This vintage Mustang courtesy of Rio dela Cruz was our next set piece. Richard actually suggested we shoot with a vintage car as a great addition to the entire feel of the shoot.

"She moves like a model," Vince shares. True enough, the next few photos prove that modeling comes natural to Sarah.

For our last few layouts, we shot on top of the plane. Richard, being the true gentleman that he is, always made sure Sarah was comfy.
