If you have booked a photo session with SweetEscape for your prewedding, then CONGRATULATIONS! Of course, the first congratulatory note is for your upcoming big event and secondly, for engaging with our trusty service in the making of the best keepsake of a lifetime.
Don't know if you notice, but we're excited! We're just as excited as any couple who is anticipating their wedding bells. But before anything else, it’s important to make your SweetEscape prewedding photography session as smooth and as successful as possible. For this reason, let us offer you a few tips for your upcoming session.
Most of these tips are fairly easy and manageable. And when you follow these do’s and don’ts, we can assure you that you’re in for a wonderful and unforgettable time as a couple and a client. Ready? Let’s dive in!
Prior to the session, we’d like to encourage you to think of a concept or a theme for your photoshoot. Feel free to share and brainstorm with us on anything that you may think of as the main idea of your photoshoot. This is one of the most recommended tips because it helps a lot with the direction that your photographer wants to take in the session. So chat us up and talk to the photographer, your wish is truly our command.
Schedule determines location. Our photographers work around your most convenient timing before approving a certain spot because there are many factors to consider. For example : if you prefer a morning shot on a beach, then your photographer will recommend a certain location that best suits that hour of your preference. Arranging your schedule is also important so that we can maximize the session, prepare better and also allow you to continue with your personal agenda of the day.
Now that you have arranged a schedule with your photographer, make sure to be on time. Each session lasts for 2 hours, and while we tolerate minor delay, it’s for the couple’s sake to arrive on time and ready in the best mood.
When we talk about attire, it’s always best to go with what’s comfortable. Especially since we mostly shoot outdoor, then proper outfits based on the weather is key to making you feel at ease. Here's a pro tip: bring an extra pair of shoes to use in between your outfit change so you can rest your feet.
With SweetEscape, it’s a Rain-Or-Shine policy. This means that the shoot must go on despite of the weather. But fret not, our photographer can easily improvise on the location that will not disappoint you. If everything fails, a reschedule is always possible to a later hour or the next day. When this happens, it’s best to keep an open mind. Know that it’s our main priority to deliver only the best results, and that your cooperation is key in creating the best images of your prewedding session.
Short on posing ideas? Not sure how to stand, smile or rest your hands? Our photographer is always ready to help. But if you are still not quite there with the posing, please don’t hesitate to ask for more tips at any given time.
Last but not least, it’s about being confident and enjoying the moment! So be yourself, don’t hold back and let’s live your prewedding photoshoot to the fullest.
Make sure you are well rested, hydrated and fit enough for the photoshoot.
It’s a teamwork, and it begins with a couple who understands each other.
An outdoor photoshoot means a lot of attention, but try to shake off your nervousness. Afterall, we’re all strangers and you’re doing absolutely fine!
Yeap, remember the part about “ Be Yourself”? Try to let loose and not to force poses, or ask your photographer for posing tips.
Avoid carrying bulky items in your pants or even checking it every minute. Enjoy the moment to the fullest with your other half!

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!"
