10 Reasons To Love Yourself
13 Feb 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

If you are the type of person who knows how to make the best of everything, then you must have a thousand reasons to be happy and to be completely in love with your life!

That’s the dream. We all want to be there. We want to be unexplainably, indescribably, overwhelmingly in love with our lives. Maybe all we need is a change of perspective or a shift in mindset. Let us share with you 11 thoughts that will convince you that your life is already great, and that you have every reason to be completely in love with it!

by Aldo for SweetEscape in Bali

1. You are healthy.

If you are ever in doubt or question what makes you happy, the #1 on our list is your biggest wealth and that is your health. It really doesn’t take much to be happy. As long as you’re healthy, you’ve earned that right to be happy!

2. You have food and shelter.

A roof above our heads and food on our table is too simple that it often gets overlooked. But in all honesty, when we’re well-fed, well-dress and even can afford that cup of fancy coffee, we can afford to smile because those are reasons enough to be happy today.

3. You have a place to call home.

Home is not a place, but a feeling. It could be in the arms of your parents, the smiles of your loved ones’ faces, that old joke your siblings love to tell, your schoolmates, your workplace, or your pet who thinks the world of you. Count your homes right now and feel your heart do the happy dance!

4. You still have hope.

Nothing is ever permanent. The only constant thing in life is change. If you’re feeling down, know that this too shall pass and you can rest in knowing that happiness is just around the corner. Have hope and be patient.

5. You see love in the people you meet.

We’re never really alone in life when we choose to let people in. Look around you. Can you see them? The people who have smiles on their faces, ready to share your adventures with you?

7. You have a memory bank that makes you smile.

Memories make up 50% of the things that get us going on the daily. The other 50% consist of making new memories! Why do you think we love preserving memories and capturing moments? Because that’s happiness in a frame!

8. You sense everything around you.

Sometimes the reason to be happy is right there in front of you, the pure blue sky speckled with white clouds, the smell of the warm cappuccino on a rainy day, that extra flavorful meal your mom cooks, the tune from your favorite singer ( ours is Ed Sheeran!)  or feeling the weight of your favorite blankie when you’re snuggling on your bed. Yes, absorb every moment, revel in it, and appreciate it because life is good!

9. You are okay with uncertainties.

Well, you don’t love ‘em. But it doesn’t bring you down. In fact, you can think of the future a surprise event! Life’s mysteries are really not ours to predict, but rather to enjoy. So don’t get too anxious of what is yet to come, but rather be excited and ready, be prepared and make the best of each passing moment.

10. You have love.

To have the ability to love and to be loved in return is definitely a reason to be happy.

Real Stories from Real Clients: What Makes You Love SweetEscape?
28 Nov 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

The idea of getting someone professional to take your photos might not appeal to everyone, but here in SweetEscape we firmly believe that once you tried a SweetEscape session, you'd immediately fall in love with it and would want to book more. No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!

1. The First Timer

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.

So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.

"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.

When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!

"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."

2. The 'Seasoned' Lovers

Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).

"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.

3. The Reporter

TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.

"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.

What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.

"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
