We love Instagram as much as you do and we think that it is truly a remarkable way to share your holiday photos! There's no doubt that your holiday photos from your SweetEscape session are Instagram-worthy. But great photos aren't enough. Follow these tips and tricks for a rocking Instagram account!
Even though Instagram is all about sharing photos, captions are as important! It is true that the saying goes a picture paints a thousand words, but nothing could tell a story better than verbal communication that are spiced with tiny little details of the situation.
Let’s say you are posting a photo of you when you're having fun in London. Instead of just posting a caption that says “London, you rock!”, try talking about the interesting moment that happened there. The ambiance, the weather, or how you feel during that shot was taken. Happy? Excited? Let them know!
Much despised, with huge advantages is the usage of hashtags! You don’t have to be famous to use hashtags, in fact, if you want more people to see and like your photos, the use of the correct hashtags is very much important. What are the stuffs you into? Traveling perhaps? Then do a little research on the Internet and find the most used hashtags that relates to traveling on Instagram. The most used hashtags means a lot of people are viewing it to find inspiration and ideas. By using that popular hashtag, you are opening doors for idea seekers to find you and your creation.
Even with the new Instagram algorithm, posting at the right time is still as important. The algorithm will hold your post for as long as a few hours and if you post it on a deserted Instagram time, you won’t be getting much feedbacks from your followers. Avoid posting on Saturday nights where people are all out having fun with their friends and forgetting their Instagram timeline. Plus, if you post anything on Saturday night, it could show how plan-less your weekend is.
Last but not least, don’t forget to edit your photos. There are many apps to do this, such as VSCOCAM or Snapseed, but if you aren’t much of an editing guru, simply leave it to us! Sweet Escape captures your holiday photos and EDIT them as well. You won’t need to do more editing since we have the best editors with the best Instagram taste in our headquarter.
Now that you know all the tools of the trade, don’t forget to use #SweetEscapeMoments as one of your hashtags to get a special giveaway from us. From now on, don’t forget to post like a pro!

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."
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.
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!"
