Holiday Is Right Around The Corner
16 Nov 2017IDEASBY SweetEscape

The best way to enjoy your holidays are by being well prepared. You can never over plan anything! The idea is whenever planning for a trip the farther the better, so right now is your absolutely last minute notice.

Here are several reasons why planning needs time;

1. Over-priced Tickets

If we can choose the date in advance for the trip, this can save us a lot of money in purchasing the flight ticket. Many promos happened half a year before the year end holiday or before summer holiday. So 6 months in advance to book a ticket will be perfect. Although now is still a good time to book your ticket because some airline (if you are thorough) they can offer you a last minute deal. If you are lucky you can get a great airplane ticket price.

2. Over-booked Hotels

This, we recommend to book at least one to three months away from your trip, especially on peak seasons. Some hotel which located in a prime location, which you might be dying to visit can be overbooked. The price can be ridiculous as well. It is much better to book the hotel farther from the trip. At this point we are closing to the very last minute.

3. Over-‘worked’ Trip

Today this is something that we need to prepare before we visit a certain place on our holiday. Because of the hype of social media, a lot of people can be at one place at a time just because the world says you need to be there. Like for example; have you ever been to a theme park where you end up just queuing the whole time instead of enjoying the rides? This is because we are not careful with the timing on when to visit. Now, would be a good time to check out some places to go to and see if it is still plausible for you to enjoy while visiting those places. These days key designated places can be swarmed with tourists. Be smart about it, you do not want to ‘work’ on your holiday.

All in all preparation is key to an awesome holiday, we want you to enjoy it. Plan it, book it, schedule it wisely. Lastly, you might want to book a session or two with our photographers because bringing back home some captured memories is part of this year end holiday experience.

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!"
