SweetEscape Picks: 9 Top Fall Destinations
05 Sep 2017PLACESBY SweetEscape

Saying goodbye to summer means embracing autumn season in full, and yes we couldn’t be more delighted about it! From the regale Europe to oriental paradise of Tokyo and Korea and more, here are our 9 top pick for fall destinations and that picture perfect memory :

1. Paris

by Tim for SweetEscape in Paris

To be fair, Paris is always worth visiting all year round but fall could be just the best time yet for many reasons. First, it’s less crowded not from international travelers but also from locals who visit from nearby cities. Second, there’s colors everywhere - the parks turn yellow, orange and crimson bright. Not to mention, it’s the best time to enjoy outdoor terraces and gardens. Last but not least, it is less expensive!

2. Montreal

by Genevieve for SweetEscape in Montreal

Many has recommended fall as the best season to explore Montreal’s gorgeous city architecture. Simply because the place comes vividly alive with all the best colors of fall. In addition to the gorgeous leaves and streets, there are also specific events such as Chinese Lanterns Festival or Pop Montreal Festival.

3. Vienna

by for SweetEscape in Vienna

Not only does the temperature drop, the visitor numbers too will dwindle significantly - leaving Vienna an even more romantic place for two. It’s also a season for theatres, operas and museums to present new temporary exhibitions. More importantly, autumn is the peak of vineyard harvest, which means that it’s the most ideal time for some hill-waking then taste some wine for that leisurely long afternoon in style.

4. New York

New York gets even more magical when in autumn. Nothing is more iconic than the soft reds of autumn foliage shedding their gorgeous leaves along the streets of Manhattan. With halloween around the corner, expect to witness extraordinary celebrations in every corner of the street or get served pumpkin delicacies available all around.

5. Budapest

by Jager for SweetEscape in Budapest

Festivals, feasting and the great outdoors, Budapest glows in the shimmering golden autumn light while the city enjoys an endless array of cultural treats. It’s the time to celebrate national beverages and foods with the locals and their annual festivals, some of which are food-related too ( the best kind, right?).

6. Reykjavik

by Michalina for SweetEscape in Reykjavik

The best time to visit Iceland? The answer is autumn because of the Northern Lights and the lower prices! The days in Reykjavik during fall season is shorter which makes it less desirable for sunrise chasing, but come evening and that’s where the sky dances with the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring Northern Lights. And yes, cheaper trips makes for happier peeps!

7. Seoul

Autumn in South Korea? “ Seoul” romantic indeed. The country is going to be painted in the best palette of autumn hues, from glorious crimson, rich orange to vibrant earthy colors unrivalled by even the best painters. There are plenty places offering festivals too during the season, but we’re sure that wherever you choose to be - it’s going to be delightful and make you FALL in love all over again.

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!"
