Reminiscing the Good Old Days
23 Sep 2017STORIESBY SweetEscape

There is always something special for couples who grew through their college hardships together away from home. We’ve all heard of stories where two lovers pursue their studies all the while enjoying the adventures that foreign cities have to offer them. You might know some of them or maybe are one of them!

The State, particularly Los Angeles (LA), holds a special significance to Casey and Marlene. They both studied there so the city is practically littered with fond memories of our dating days and some of the best times of their lives. This SweetEscape trip to New York is also a special for both of them, because they also had quite a lot of their sweet moments there.

"Surprisingly though, we never went to the magnificent New York back during our dating days. It was only after our wedding that we visited New York. We went during Christmas too, so as you can imagine, it was splendidly gorgeous, magical and every bit Christmassy! Somewhere along riding the horse carriage and strolling around Central Park, I think we fell madly in love with New York.

Claus here (our the eldest son) is no stranger to US trip too. We took him to US on a Christmas trip back when he was 3 years old and it was every bit a winter holiday to remember. This time, Caleigh is joining us for a summer holiday in New York because we want her to feel the wonderful atmosphere only United States can offer. So happy that now we have SweetEscape for that perfect family memory of a lifetime.

Just like every family, vacation is a precious and exciting time for us. It gets tiring of course caring for two children 24/7, but there’s also a sense of unity for both Casey and I. We rely on each other a lot and get to learn more about one another while discovering so many new sides of our kids too.

I think that happiness lies in the simple moments we share as a family, from walking down the parks of NYC, exploring the city, stopping by to eat whenever we please ( yes, we’re absolute foodies at heart!), and just being together the four of us.

And to make it even more memorable, we want to capture every rolling second as much as possible. We want to capture Casey and Caleigh’s innocence as they ran carefreely through the park. We want to look back and see the pictures where they are at their fullest selves, so happy and full of joy.

So thank you SweetEscape for eternalizing our wishes during our trip in New York. Harris was a dream photographer to work with, even the kids agree with me. Thank you so much for the effortless photo session. Your results speak volume of how our kids live a life well traveled and so dearly loved."

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!"
