For us girls, any occasion can be an excuse to play dress-up, especially for a major one such as your prewedding photography! We imagine you must have so many ideas, or maybe none for you clueless brides-to be out there. But fret not, SweetEscape is here to deliver some of the most fashionable yet easy tips for your pre-wedding outfits. So read on and get ready for some styling!
A prewedding photo session can be a parade of different outfits or maybe just one or two pieces. Regardless of how many outfits you have prepared, remember to pick at least one or the dress that truly shines and dazzles. Select one dress that is the star of the pre-wedding session, something that looks absolutely stunning, and has a touch of classic that will go beyond seasons or trends.
We personally love the superbly effortless and elegant style that our designer friend, Bramanta Wijaya, embodies. His collection ranges from full dramatic gown to something simple with a timeless and sophisticated flair. Take a look at his virtual gallery and we know you will be lusting over some pieces immediately.
Well, if you do, then good news for your SweetEscape fans because we have teamed up with the talented fashion maker. Get a 25% discount on Bramanta Wijaya Pink Label Ready-to-Wear collection by booking with SweetEscape during September! Hurry up and snatch the deal girls.
The rule with accessories is pretty much the same with your dress : “ choose classic”. Avoid seasonal trend with your pre-wedding accessories as you want to achieve that timeless and eternal feel with your pre-wedding photography.
Another guideline that we swears by is “ quality over quantity”, so try not to over accessorize but instead pick a statement piece of accessories to really highlight your overall look.
At SweetEscape, we’re obsessed with From Tiny Islands which perfectly translates everything we are looking for in accessories. From daily wear to something dainty and special for wedding and engagement with exceptional quality and classic touch, this brand has it all!

Some colors are classified as photogenic, while some are not- and your outfit can be the main attraction to all the colors that are happening in the pre-wedding session.
Avoid overemphasizing colors such as orange, neon, or red and stick with complimenting colors such as cool, solid and neutral tones. If you want to add a dash of interesting pop to the shoot, you can also do so with certain accessories or props, for example your shoes, an umbrella, etc to make the photo stands out.
Big bold patterns can be quite distracting especially if there are too many of them going on at the same time. If you want to work with big bold patterns, make sure it’s subdued and sparring enough so that it doesn’t overwhelm your whole look.
The same goes with stripes and checks which can turn out jarring on camera and don’t work well with close-up shots. Our tip? It’s truly best to go with something neutral and avoid big patterns altogether

You might associate ‘fun’ and ‘relax’ with beach resorts or mountain villas, but being in the heart of the city has its perks and doesn’t always have to be a hassle. We had the pleasure of shooting with model, television host, beauty columnist, lifestyle blogger, and mum Kelly Misa recently and caught up a bit on the beauty of city living.
I love being central to my work and to my family and friends. It is really convenient given I don’t need to travel far to get to my destination. Also, all the best groceries and markets are in the city (my priorities because I’m a mom) and it’s just more accessible to live within Metro Manila.
Being a mom to a toddler who just recently started school, I rarely go out. But as a family, we love eating out and trying new restaurants. One restaurant I recently tried and loved is Pablo Bistro in Salcedo Village. They serve the most amazing goat cheese salad as well as grilled octopus! Amazing! And just next door is Cartel Deli where you can find excellent coffee.
My weekends are spent with family. Most times we spend our time together at home but once in awhile we go out and try a new restaurant, check in a hotel to go on a staycation or drive out of town to Tagaytay or to the beach in Batangas.
I go to One Life Studio in Alabang for one on one Pilates sessions. This has really helped me stretch out my muscles, strengthen my core, and fix my posture.
A warm shimmery blush! I love Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color blush in Terrarose, and a pinkish nude lippie, MAC Velvet Teddy. Usually that’s all I wear everyday.
SweetEscape has been an absolute joy… I have captured so many amazing photos from my travels all over the world thanks to this photography app and I really can’t ask for anything more. The photographers are always kind and accommodating, and so patient with my son to get that perfect family photo.
