We get it, taking pictures with a big group isn’t the easiest of feats. There’s a huge possibility for awkward poses, hesitant smiles, and once you add in the screaming children who’s had enough of the camera, you’ll lose energy and you’d want to wrap up the session as fast as you can.
So, how on earth can you be relaxed, show some connection, feel like you’re having fun during the SweetEscape session with the big family, and get some really great pictures at the end of it? Here are three things you can do:
You might want to choose a place that is meaningful to you. Whether you’re visiting it for the first time or you’ve been there a million times, choose somewhere that interests you and a lot of your family members (because let’s face it, you won’t be able to please everybody). After you book a session with SweetEscape, get in touch with your assigned photographer and chat about all the possible locations you can be at your destination. They know the city like the back of the hand, and they will be able to recommend places to suit your liking.
Believe it or not, colored outfits make a world of a difference in group portraits. However, since we like to keep our style of portraits casual and candid, instead of being “matchy-matchy” and wearing the same set out outfits, may we suggest you to wear the same warm or cool color palates? Oh and another thing, whatever you choose to wear, please make sure that you’re comfortable!
Remind yourself that this is supposed to be a fun session. Don’t hold back on the laughter or the need to comfort a crying child. Be okay with taking a break and let the photographer go on with taking pictures of mini groups. Let the kids run around and be silly. Let the grandparents sit back and relax as they watch them. We believe that it’s these in-between moments that will end up being your favorites!

It's the Royal Wedding weekend! Like the rest of the world, we are excited to witness the upcoming grand nuptial of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - a modern-day fairytale, if you ask us. Love is in the air, excitement is everywhere and inspiration is abound, but let's not forget: London is going to be hella crowded! When the whole nation is rejoicing and having a massive celebration, there are all kinds of street parties wherever you go. So what to do when you already booked a trip to London for this weekend? Fret not! We have a few tips for you to enjoy London during the Royal Wedding weekend to the fullest extent. Check them out!
A surefire way to escape traffic and mass of people blocking the roads holding their own parties. This is also a great chance for you to explore the hidden corners of London and really get the feel of the city. If you're the introvert kind, taking the public transportation will also allow you to observe all the fun from afar without having to take part!
There are plenty of venues - both small and large - across London that offer a public viewing of the Royal Wedding as well as their own activities inspired by or alluding to the Royal Wedding. If you feel like having some fun, why not join them? Check out the local listings or simply ask around to find the perfect venue!
The British public might not have got a day off for the wedding but pub fans certainly have something to thank Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for! The celebration period over the Royal Wedding weekend allows London pubs to open longer well until 1 A.M. the night after the wedding. Refresh yourself with a pint or two!
From museums, festivals and concerts, there are different going-ons in London over the Royal Wedding weekend too, so if you don't feel like taking part in the whole Royal Wedding madness, then it's time to plunge into another London trademark: the arts! Consult your guide on which event is most suitable to your heart's content!
Not into crowds or festivities and want to feel like a royal yourself? Then just stay in at one of the hotels in London with its own special Royal Wedding offers. We recommend the following: One Aldwych, Zetter Townhouse and Hotel Cafe Royal. We say you deserve your own royal treatment too!
