3 Things You Need To Know Before Your #SweetEscapePrewedding in Bali
13 Sep 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

Dubbed as one of the most romantic places on earth, including the repeated reputation as the best destination in the world, Bali is definitely has all the winning factors for any couple on vacation. The Island of God is not just welcoming with its paradisiacal beach and sweeping ocean views, but is ready to wow with its culinary, culture, people and more. It's really no wonder that Bali is one of the most popular destinations even for #SweetEscapePrewedding.

Our Bali-based SweetEscape photographers share some insights on what to prepare for a #SweetEscapePrewedding in Bali. Check out the three things you need to know to make your #SweetEscapePrewedding in Bali a successful one:

Pick a Concept

A photo concept means the main theme of your pre-wedding photography. It could range from general ideas, such as casual, romantic, fun, bright and so on, to something that is specific, for example editorial glam, boho summer style, nautical only, etc.

At SweetEscape, we encourage our clients to think about a theme because it helps define what kind of mood to highlight. Some couples love the fun silly concept, while others prefer to go with formal tone or deep romance. We welcome all concepts as preferred by our clients, and in fact really encourage you to pick the best one that suits both of you as the couple.

Once you have decided on a concept, tell us all about it, including your inspiration, expectation, worry and all other details. It’ll also be helpful to show us some photo reference to pinpoint the exact idea of your concept. No information is ever too much, so spill it on us! Simply think of us as a friend, good listener and expert all rolled into one. Very often, such brainstorm sessions with clients result in better preparation, more ideas and suggestions too.

Timing is Everything

To get the best pre-wedding photo results, the shooting time is essential as it is the key factor to the best lighting for photoshoot and other details, such as location, weather and your personal schedule. This doesn’t mean that you only get to pick a morning or afternoon session, because SweetEscape have some of the best portfolio in Bali for all hours, from sunrise to sunset too!

Simply tell us what time works best for you, so that our team can arrange and assign the right photographer for you. Based on your timing preference, we’ll suggest the details to you to optimize your session, such as suggesting the best spot, and put you at ease during the whole time.

Coordinate Your Outfits

One of our top recommendations for a couple on pre-wedding photoshoot is outfit coordination.

Believe it or not, what you’re wearing is just as important as the other details we mentioned above (lighting and locations). Poorly planned outfits can really take away from an otherwise really great results. While a well-planned one can flatter the couple and really bring out the best in you.

The best outfit coordination is about complementing each other, without having to match your outfits to the same exact colors or styles. So pick a color theme or stick to the concept that you have picked prior. Most importantly, it should be something that is comfortable for you, because comfort means confidence and that is the perfect recipe for photography success.

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!"
