“He’s my kind of Superman”
14 Feb 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

“I think that damsels in distress are almost extinct. There are only very few left in this world. Despite how much men want to rescue them and how they dream about the romance involved in being rescued, women these days are very well capable of taking care of themselves. They hardly need any rescuing. Interestingly, as women become stronger and more empowered, men have changed too, like as though there’s a new breed of supermen. A superman for the super girls is different than the kind of Superman we all grew up with. Instead of physical strength, the new kind of superman possess inner strength, intelligence, and a huge heart.

I think that there’s nothing wrong with women who go after what they want. In fact, I often take pride in my leadership abilities to take control of every situation I find myself in. But that wasn’t always so. I used to feel like I needed to “dim my light” or to come off weaker than I was because I didn’t want people (men, especially) to find me intimidating. But then I though to myself, how tiring would it be to live a life you didn’t want? I believe that the man who would love me would take me just as I am. And I have to believe that with the rise of strong women who know what they want, there is also a rise of even stronger men with bigger hearts, who are humble and patient, who are generally easily content with life, possess inner strength, and most of all, have the innate ability to be completely CHILL, no matter what situation he finds himself in.

This is Mike. My husband, Mike, is that man. I am very fortunate to have met him. I love how he takes care of me, even when I tell him to back off because I can take care of myself. I love how he makes me even more complete than I thought I already was. I love the chemistry we share and I love feeling like he’s the piece that I’ve been missing in my life all this time.

Today is his birthday. And I want to celebrate the man he is. Happy birthday to my Superman.”

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!"
