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!
Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
SweetEscape now offers a one-hour photo shoot that'll capture your best holiday moments in 1-2 spots. Your edited photos will be ready in 3 business days, just in time for sharing with everyone else around the world.
