07 Aug 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

We all need a little bit of holiday inspirations now and then to get us going. And who better to give the most amazing ideas than from people who globetrote for living? Yes, we’re talking about the people who are lucky enough to travel the corners of world and look good while they are at it too. We asked some of our most favorite influencers about their holiday recommendation and what makes it a visit-worthy destination. Check out their recommended destinations below:

Cindy Karmoko: Iceland

Her passion for fashion brought her to the spotlight, but it’s really her impeccable style that wins our hearts. Cindy Karmoko is a self-confessed shoe addict who chronicles her life journey, OOTDs, fashion inspirations and more in her visual diary since 2011.

As her style evolves through the years, so does her travelling adventure. From Bolzano to Taiwan and Sydney to Milan, Cindy’s love for beauty in the world continues through her next destination which she shared with us.

“There are many countries on my bucket list, but Iceland is at the top of it. I’ve personally never been there, but I’ve heard lots of great things about it, particularly about its beauty. I’m looking forward to hunting for the aurora lights!”

Kenny Santana: Iceland

With over 50K followers on his Instagram, Kenny is not a stranger in the world of instatravel. His account, @kartupostinsta, is a wanderlust-inducing gallery filled with exotic destinations, intense photographic proofs and dreamy colorful vibes, making him one of our most favorite travel influencers of all.

For his end-of-year holiday, Kenny chooses everyone’s favorite destination on earth - Iceland. The reason is none other than to experience again the surreal and phenomenal Aurora Borealis in the winter through his own eyes. To him, this otherworldly spot is one of the most unforgettable places he’s ever been in his life.

Dara & Claudia Setyohadi: Positano

The Setyohadi sisters consists of the eldest Adindara Jelita and her younger sister, Ameralda Claudia. Dara takes on her role as a young entrepreneur and influencer while Claudia too is gaining her popularity through her social media platforms. Together, this dynamic duo presents a united front as sisters who conquer the world together.

When we asked them to name a destination for holiday inspiration, their pick goes to Positano. The beauties have had a chance to visit the coastal paradise of Italy one October and dreamed of reminiscing the breezy sunny days while frolicking in style. With a great pick like this, we can’t help but agree.

Jovita Ayu: London

Her profile says it all - a travel and lifestyle gypsy. Her love for life exploration includes a wide variety of things, but you can always count on her instagallery @jovitaayu for shots of vivid blue skies, endless waters, the greenest landscape and snippets of her interesting life.

She dished out her travel recommendation and it’s no surprise that this globetrotter picks London, UK for her year-end holiday. The Christmas spirit and full-on holiday vibes are the main reason for her selection, as she continued with more “ London is full with pretty lights that complement all the beautiful buildings! Plus the old and new experience at the Seine River bank was definitely amazing. The fireworks were one of the world’s best!”

Looking to relive her experience with her fiance, we wish this pretty lady happy travels!

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!"
