Love Blossoms Under The Cherry Blossom: Huan and Akiyo's Surprise Proposal
02 Apr 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Cherry blossom season in Japan is always special for many people. Doing hanami (Cherry blossom viewing) in popular spots such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, or even places outside Japan such as Seoul, Taichung, or Paris becomes one of the top entries of everyone's bucket lists. However, we think that this year's cherry blossom season becomes a lot more special for Malaysian jewelry designer Huan Ooi! About one month before their recent Hanami trip to Tokyo, Huan contacted SweetEscape to plan a romantic surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Baby Akiyo.

Huan wanted to pop the question in a special way, so he decided to take the extra mile. Being a jeweller, Huan decided to design the proposal ring himself instead of getting one from a shop, making it all-the-more special.

To capture the moment, Huan's friends recommended SweetEscape, so he decided to follow their advise and contacted us. For over a month, Huan went back and forth with our Tokyo photographer Bram to iron out the details, making sure that everything would turn out perfect when the special day comes. As the big day fastly approaches, Huan became more and more nervous and anxious, but as he had planned it perfectly, he had nothing to worry about.

Finally, on March 28th, 2019 under the sakura tree, as the unsuspecting Akiyo was recording her vlog under the beautiful sakura trees, Huan approached her, took out the beautifully wrapped custom-made ring, bent his knee, and asked the big question...

Congratulations! Five Ideas For Your Graduation Photo Shoot
18 Jul 2019IDEASBY SweetEscape

Congratulations, Graduants! After years of grueling work and many sleepless nights studying, you're finally graduated! Taking photos to immortalize one of your biggest achievements in life is a necessity, but sometimes you might feel that taking the same old poses at the same old locations might be boring. Worry not, for we have compiled five ideas for your graduation shoots this year!

1. Campus Love

by Louis for SweetEscape in Melbourne
by Nicholaus for SweetEscape in San Francisco

You spent days, nights, months and years in this space studying and working, but (most-importantly) you made new friends in the campus that would last forever. What better way to make the memories last forever than to capture your graduation shots right there at the place where very corner holds a special memory of your journey together.

2. Go Downtown

by Haris for SweetEscape in New York

As much as you spent your days in the campus, there must be nights and days where you walk and explore the city where you study, especially if you're studying overseas or in a different city. Walk down memory lane through your favourite shopping streets or the city's famous restaurant alley and capture your graduation photos in those spots.

3. Famous Landmarks!

by Haris for SweetEscape in New York

Especially for you who go to school in world-famous or historic cities, you might want to take your graduation shots at the city's famous landmark. A picture speaks a thousand words and nothing tells a better university-life story than a picture (or lots of it) in London's Tower Bridge and Big Ben, NYC's Brooklyn Bridge and Liberty Island, or Tokyo Tower. Trust us, the picture will turn into a treasure to show your children in the future!

4. Single Fighter vs #SquadGoals

by William S. for SweetEscape in Jakarta
by Greta for SweetEscape in Los Angeles

Friends are always needed to help you go through the rougher times of your college life, and capturing your graduation together with great photos is always a great way to make your friendship more memorable. However, as much as you enjoyed your time with your squad, there are always times when you had to fight your way through classes and lectures on your own. Celebrating your success in going through that and coming out on top with a solo photoshoot is not a bad idea!

5. Because You Loved Me

by Michelle for SweetEscape in Toronto
by Nicholaus for SweetEscape in San Francisco

By the time we graduated, we must have realized that our journey through college would never be possible without the support and love of our loved ones, be it our parents back home, or our significant others that supported us day to day, near or far. Celebrate your graduation by taking great photos with these most important people in your lives!

by Andrew for SweetEscape in Melbourne
