Do you know what actually makes a great holiday photo? Some would argue that it depends on the location, like a family photo on a garden full of Sakura trees or a memorable picture in front of the London Royal Palace. Some others would argue that a great family photo depends on the photographer or the camera. Even a photo on Iceland wouldn’t be a great one without a state of the art camera with a great eye behind it.
Despite of all those arguments, we truly believe that a great holiday photo depends on the person in itself. By that, we believe that a holiday photo should be able to capture the mood and the personality of the ones being captured. You can have a nice background for your holiday photo, but it wouldn’t be as nice if the subject stands still looking bored in every poses. That is why we compile some of our favorite holiday photos from London and Sydney that could be an inspiration for your next holiday getaway.
Instead of looking cute or charming on your next holiday photo, why not be funny and witty instead? Rethink your angle and poses in such a way that shows the genuine fun you’ve been having in your holiday. Ignore all the Instagram posy photos and be your true self. Let loose, have fun and ignore all the watchers.
If you were usually behind the camera, this would come as something natural to you. But if you are the subject of a group photo, you might want to interact with the group instead of the usual smiling and posing style. Your little interaction with the peers will bring your photo to life. It might be awkward at first, but after a few times you will be quite used to it.
Ask your friends holding the camera to take candid shots during the holiday. The best shots are usually spontaneous and unplanned. That’s why you need to have your camera ready at all times! It could happen when you’re eating or even when you’re packing.
Try to capture a bit of the surrounding environment so the memories of your vacation, especially some particular places, can last a lifetime.
Wherever you go, make sure to bring home memorable photos that will put a wide smile on your face once you take a look at them again. Follow those 4 simple steps and we are sure that you will get those kinds of photos. For less hustle, talk to us and we will make sure of that!
Professional basketball player Hamady Ndiaye proposed to her girlfriend Kameel on the beautiful El Nido, and SweetEscape were lucky enough to be a part of their beautiful love moment! Read through to see how their love story unfolds!
I met Kameel on July 31st 2010 and I never let go of her since that day.
We been together 9 years and I basically asked her out in the first week or two after the first time we saw each other.
I told my Best friend and Brother within the Hour after meeting her "I think I found HER" (referring to the woman of my dreams), and we still talk about it to this day.
I have been planning it since 2016 all the pieces came together this year. Sweet Escape was the last piece of the puzzle that I needed to actually confirm that I was going to do it because what’s an engagement to a Fashion Designer/Blogger without pictures and videos to capture the perfect moment.
Well I was sent on a vacation by senator Manny Pacquiao after my PBA season to Pangulasian island and I got to visit Miniloc at the time and all the small islands around El Nido which was when I decided that the next time I would come to the Philippines with my now fiancé would be the time make it happen in one of the most beautiful places I have been so far. That’s when the idea started cooking in my mind and took the time to perfect exactly what I wanted to happen.
That was a process as well because I wanted it to describe how much she means to me but also reflect her character on it. I wanted to make sure I covered every aspect of her dreams to make it a moment last a lifetime.
SweetEscape was referred to me by a good friend from Mighty Sports while we were competing to win the Jones Cup Gab Banal. I explained my plans and that the only part I couldn’t figure out was how to get a photographer on the island for the day. He Shared the link and upon discussing my intentions with them, they helped not just with pictures, but helped me prepare the place and directed the photo shoot so well that my fiancé couldn’t imagine what I was setting up for her. Once I gave them the go sign, they were prepared and set to capture every angle of the proposal with both their equipments and mine. It’s been the greatest moment for me and my fiancé and looking forward to our new chapter in life. Couldn’t be more thankful for the Philipines, Mighty Sports and SweetEscape for helping me bring this amazing dream to life for us!
We're always happy and excited to be a part of everyone's love journey! For every lovely moment, SweetEscape is ready to capture every detail for you! Book now and let's #MakeLifeMemorable!
