Seoul is beyond a bustling cosmopolitan Korean city and home to the sensational K-Pop culture. It’s a city of both worlds, where 14th century palaces stand beside 21st century skyscrapers. Our darling Emily Jaury Shared her experience with us and here's her version of a Seoulful day!
"I traveled to Seoul with my college best friends. We're told that the best way to experience traditional Korean culture and reliving the glorious memory of Joseon Dynasty by wearing the Korean traditional dress called Hanbok while soaking up the historical ambiance of Gyeongbokgung.
So we rented Hanbok at the Hanbok rental shop in Seoul and to make this visit to Gyeongbokgung palace extra memorable. Near the palace there’s a cluster of traditional Korean houses called Bukchon Hanok Village we strolled and imagined living in a different era.
After a blast from the past, we had chicken galbi which is tender chicken cutlets marinated in spicy Korean sauce, served in a huge pan, paired with oozing mozzarella cheese. That dish left us satisfied and fueled-up so we're so energized enough to do a shopping marathon in Myongdong area. You know, that crazy labyrinth every shopaholic will love to visit. We're kinda overwhelmed with so many great skincare and makeup products, not to mention the fashionable clothes, shoes and bags. We felt absolutely happy with all our shopping loots!
After an exhausted shopping spree, we needed to wind down for a moment and thankfully Seoul has the abundance of cafés and coffee shops, from the trendiest to the quirkiest.
Traveling with my best friends is a rare occurrence since everyone’s busy with work and personal life. I was treasuring every single moment in the vibrant city of Seoul and grateful for our SweetEscape photographer who captured each moments perfectly.”

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!
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."
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.
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!"
