Here's a fun fact: guys love to pop the million dollar question during a trip together.
We've been lucky enough to be a part of many marriage proposals. And we simply can't get enough. We live for these heartwarming moments, and we cannot wait to do it again. We've done it so often that our photographers are now experts in documenting these kinds of important moments (while trying to take it all in at the same time, of course!)
Not to make you sound overly confident or anything, but if you're a happy girlfriend and you sense that your man has something up his sleeves during this holiday you're going on together, wouldn't getting ready for it be the most natural (and logical) thing to do? Because, just like all major milestones in your life, it is best that you come prepared.
Let's think about these three things to get you started:
It's the biggest surprise of your life and your outfit would be the last thing on your mind. But one thing is for sure... you should be wearing something you're comfortable in. Wear the outfit, don't let the outfit wear you. Dress in your own style. If you're about to make him the happiest man on earth by saying "Yes!", it doesn't matter what you're wearing!
You may picture this a thousand times in your head, but you will still get overwhelmed, at lost of words, or maybe dumbfounded. It is okay to be in a shock for the first 2 second, but don’t worry because your genuine emotions will take over.
You may jump for joy, scream with delight, tear up or sob uncontrollably. Whatever you’re feeling, just express yourself freely! Don’t hold back for the camera or the crowd. In fact, it’s the one time in life that you must really absorb in all its entirety and just forget about what others think!
So yes, your man proposed - but not in the way you had pictured being proposed to. You're slightly disappointed, but let's shift you thoughts to this picture: you’re with the love of your life in this amazing foreign land and he is asking your hand in marriage. No matter how he does it, that fact alone is already special enough to make you feel extra loved!
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!
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."
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.
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!"
