Camille Said Yes! A Surprise Proposal in Rikugi-en Garden in Tokyo
06 Sep 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

With an Instagram highlights tab dedicated to her proposal-to-wedding clips and a vlog telling how it all happened, Camille Co breaks to the internet that she's now engaged with her longtime partner, Joni Koro.

Camille Co, one of the OG fashion bloggers in the Philippines, is also a fashion designer who does couture creations through Co-Exist by Camille Co. She's known for her striking OOTD poses in picturesque travel locations and a really appealing fashion taste, which, no wonder, makes her 474k Instagram followers double-tap on every post.

But behind every good shot or well-curated feed is an Instagram husband. Being a part of the OG "blogger jowas" (blogger boyfriends), Joni is that supportive partner who does all sorts of poses just to be able to take that perfect shot.

True to his commitment, Joni joins Camille on a work trip in Japan in August. On a day when they had no other plans but to chill and do some shopping and eating supposedly, it was Joni who had "other plans". Even when Camille was feeling under the weather on a hot morning in Tokyo, Joni managed to convince her to stroll around Rikugi-en Garden.

As a straightforward couple who talks about everything openly, Camille knew a proposal was happening this year, but she never knew when exactly. "I’d suspect every now and then but I’d always stop myself from assuming further. That back and forth got me all confused which helped him cause then he got me to the garden without me ruining the surprise", she narrates.

Then it happened. "I was busy checking photos when he suddenly knelt down on the bridge and asked me to be the only hand he’ll ever hold from now to forever", Camille shares.

Joni took the chance and he needed not to wait any further because he simply knew that it was the right time.

On her vlog, Camille shared a few photos of Joni's proposal taken by a SweetEscape photographer in Tokyo. Magical as it seems, that perfect moment isn't something like a "blogger jowa" could control or direct because it was simply their #CoKoro moment. "Proposal is a once in a lifetime moment so if you want it to be photographed you also want a good photographer. This is the biggest benefit of SweetEscape — I don’t have to know the photographer in advance, I can do the booking online and SweetEscape will assign me a skilled photographer. Super easy and convenient", Joni shares.

Here are some photos from the #CoKoro proposal in Tokyo, Japan:

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!"
