The Short Version: It’s easy to get wrapped up in a romantic moment, celebration, or vacation and forget to take good photos. Fortunately, the local photographers at SweetEscape can help couples capture and share those special moments in their lives no matter where they are. Whether you’re taking a family trip or celebrating an engagement, you can book a photo shoot through SweetEscape to get professional photos taken of your experience, so you can cherish those memories for years to come.

Photography enthusiasts and entrepreneurs David Soong and Emile Etienne founded SweetEscape in 2017 to connect travelers with an international network of professional photographers. The company started in Indonesia, and now it reaches over 500 cities worldwide.

David got the idea for SweetEscape while taking a Paris trip with his family. He realized that their only option to get a family photo was to either attempt a close-up selfie or ask a stranger on the street to take their photo. Neither strategy yielded a great result, and David found himself wishing he knew a professional photographer in town.

One Asian couple traveled to Sweden for a romantic vacation and hired a SweetEscape photographer to take pictures of them touring the city.
