Viva Venice Biennale 2017
13 Sep 2017PLACESBY SweetEscape

The 57th International Art Exhibition, titled Viva Arte Viva is currently opened to public and will last till 26th November 2017. The magnificent event is dubbed fittingly as the Olympics of the artworld and is arguably the world’s most important international art fair. The event itself takes place at Arsenale and Giardini venues along with several other locations in Venice.

With over hundreds of artists participating, it will be a paradise of art display, exhibitions, installments and special projects that no one would want to miss when in Venice. And not just that, with SweetEscape’s love for the arts, we know just how to make your whole experience sweeter by these some artylicious tips:

Ticket Information

There are different types of entrance tickets, so it all depends on which ticket that fits your needs. If you’re a first timer, you can settle for regular ticket that costs 25 euros. It will aloow you one entrance to Giardini and one to Arsenale for two non-consecutive days. It’s also recommended to purchase your ticket online to avoid queue, where you can also plan and adjust the ticket as per your needs.

Location, Location

The event is spread across two main locations (Giardini and Arsenale) and different venues in and around Venice. With the number of participating acts, the Art Biennale can be overwhelming. So if you do plan to enjoy the day to the fullest, look for hotels that will be around in the particular area. You will be spoiled for options so choose wisely!

Refresh and Recover

Exhausted for the day? The hectic event area provides plenty of resting and catering area with cafe-style array of food. But if you want to venture further for some proper relaxation, The Serra dei Giardini comes highly recommended. This cafe-snack bar is housed inside a magnificent greenhouse in the non-exhibition sector of the Giardini so it’s just perfect for that quiet moment all to yourself.

It’s all about the art

There are some art displays that are more anticipated than another and all the schedules are available online for your information at their website. Several of the must-not miss acts include Bruce Nauman’s Topological Gardens, Fiona Tan’s Netherlands Pavilion to Lygia Pape’s Arsenale. If you are not familiar with any of this, it’s totally fine and you can simply enjoy it with a more relaxed schedule based on your convenience.

You cannot miss any moment here in such a beautiful Venice. If you have two hours to spare, don't forget to have our photographer capture your every moment to make your visit to Venice more memorable. Book your session now.

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!"
