Like most large metropolis, Tokyo is predominated by skyscrapers, high-rise office buildings and modern residentials. As the capital city of Japan, its fast-paced urban rhythm is beating with busy colors and dynamic hustle bustle. This is why, SweetEscape loves to host session in the midst of these outburst of energy and places you in the center of it all. The result is often surreal with a signature charm that only Tokyo has to offer.

Kyoto

The entire landscape of Kyoto is dotted with grand historical properties dated back to 1200 years ago. In addition to that, this city has rich and beautiful natural surroundings, including . majestic mountains and flowing rivers. As a result, Kyoto is a destination that is filled with strong cultural display and lively natural elements. Our photographic results often showcase colorful and elegant side of Kyoto, with a depth of iconic local landscape.

Kanazawa is another underrated Japanese gem that is often overlooked by most international tourists. The fact is, this less travelled city houses one of the best preserved Edo-period history in the whole of Japan. In Kanazawa, you can expect to experience the authentic historical marks of shrines, temples, samurais, merchants and geishas all around. As a result, our camera loves to trail these breathtaking nostalgic remnants with you at the center of it all.

Nara

Perhaps many are not aware of the fact that Nara used to be Japan’s first permanent capital. As one of the most rewarding destinations in Japan, Nara is a promise of Japan’s cultural legacy with a matching natural beauty you simply must not miss. With SweetEscape, a visit to Nara means walking among the impressive Daibutsu ( Great Buddha) housed in Todaiji temple with a park filled with fascinating sights, including lush greenery and deer roaming around freely.

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!"
