Dressing Up For Winter In Sydney
14 May 2017IDEASBY SweetEscape

Winter in Sydney usually begins from June to August and to some of the bravest locals, it’s more like a “socks and sandals” kind of weather. This means that the weather is far from chilly and is very much bearable where the sun still shines most of the days. The normal temperature in the beginning of Sydney winter ranges around mid to to low 20’s degree Celsius, but may get colder as the month passes by. July and August are usually much colder than June, hitting below 20 degree Celsius to around 15-16 degree. On average, the Sydney winter weather is normally not cold enough so long johns or heavy coats may not be necessary. Especially if you’re the type who loves cold weather, an extra layer of undercloth or singlet is a great idea to keep your body warm without weighing you down.

As for holiday photography, winter in Sydney makes it extra perfect for photo sessions. If you plan to have a traveling photography during the season, it’s good news for you. Based on your preference, it is time to glam up or tone down your style during this, however you like it. So our tips for Escapists hailing from the tropical Asian countries, including Indonesia, just continue bringing your best style for this sweater weather. Perhaps a light coat or warm shawl to jazz up her outfit or a cool leather vest for him. If you plan to wear a dress or a skirt, an extra dark colored stocking may give you that instant classy look too. Instead of a beanie, a beret or other thick fabric hats can work as an extra decoration for your hair.

As for family with kids, you might want to pack more singlets for your toddlers along with long sleeved shirts, pullovers and a light rain jacket. A hat is also recommended because it helps to tame down hair during that windy day. Socks and shoes such as sneakers or boots are more preferable as you want to keep their little toes warm at all times.

Still, we would recommend that you pack in moderation. If you or your other family members tend to get chilly even in air conditioned rooms, then you may want to bring more layers to keep them extra warm and comfy. Also pay attention to your materials, pack more wool, cotton and thick denim instead of polyester or other delicate fabric.

Lastly, remember to dress comfortably! Sometimes fashion in traveling photography is not entirely about what you’re wearing, but how you feel in your outfit. Make sure you’re confident, comfortable and happy with your attire selection. And we guarantee, your photoshoot will turn out much better in the final results.

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!"
