Beyond the Urban Beauty of Bandung
20 Aug 2017IDEASBY SweetEscape

The reason why we can’t get enough of this charming and absolutely endearing sister of Jakarta is because of everything it has to offer. With an art deco architecture, the cool highland breeze and not-that-crazy traffic ( during certain seasons at least), Bandung is giving us major feels in each and every visit.

But in this article, we’re going beyond the city life of Bandung. Yep, we’re not talking about the oh-so romantic cafe, the glimmering lights of all the instagrammable streets, and the heart of the downtown Bandung. This time, it’s about exploring the suburban of Bandung that still has all the breathtaking beauty of modernity at its best.

These places have sprung out everywhere in Bandung, especially in Lembang where countless of extraordinary places are being brought to life. Think of the Hobbit House, Floating Market, The Lodge Maribaya, and the likes - you will soon know that sometimes the combination of nature’s best meets man’s creations is the best thing that happens to photography paradise.

With no shortage of new attractions all over the outskirt of main city Bandung, we at SweetEscape too are enjoying a new trend of mixing natural canvas dotted with fantasy comes alive. And the results is something that makes us hooked even more.

Because, how can you not love the contrast between the calming lake with the mysterious hobbit-like dwellings? Or how about that distinct white building standing amidst the all-green tea plantation emerald? Or the colorful boats cutting through the calm ripples of the waters? This is definitely a trend in photography that we’re looking forward to see in the future.

So the next time you’re in for a quick visit to Bandung, think of SweetEscape and all the possibilities of having perfect pictures in this gorgeous places. And watch as the results will trick your eyes and make you question, “ Why didn’t I ever think of doing this sooner?”. Oh why indeed.

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!"
