Not all of us has the dexterity, tech know-how, and, most important, presence of mind to take a totally spontaneous photo of a once-in-a-lifetime moment such as, say, running into Kelsey Merritt in a crowded night market in Hong Kong. 

For very specific (and maybe imaginary) scenarios such as this, as well as other special experiences that happen in the course of traveling, the secret to a photo worthy of the ’gram is this: There needs be someone else in charge of the documentation.

SweetEscape, the photography service that connects people with over 2,000 photographers in more than 400 cities around the world, fills in that role of professional image recorder, so that you get an album’s-worth of high-quality memories when your very expensive trip ends.

More important, the three-year-old service releases you from the agony of mucking about with cameras, lighting, location, and all other miscellaneous stuff that just take away from the actual experience of getting blisfully lost in a crowded night market in Hong Kong. 

Just in time for the crush of holiday travel, it offers a new one-hour photography service that is perfect for those with tight itineraries (whose fault is that?) or those visiting multiple destinations in one country or area. 

The plan lets you take photos in two spots, choose from more than 50 edited photos, and then download a final set of 20 images. IMAGE: courtesy of SweetEscape

David Soong, founder and CEO of SweetEscape, illustrates its this way: Say you are visiting Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka in Japan, the service becomes a flexible option for capturing that winning photo (or photos) for the Christmas greeting card. Go ahead and book an hour for every city. Or just one. Up to you.

The one-hour service is available in 22 cities, including Tokyo, Seoul, New York, Paris, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sydney, Melbourne, Osaka, Kyoto, Bali, Jakarta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and more. 

As it is shorter (or sweeter), the cost is lower, starting at USD120 (around P6,300) for a pool of 50-plus edited photos and a final selection of 20 images. 

Not confined to vacations, the service is also perfect for proposals and bachelor parties. IMAGE: courtesy of SweetEscape

Of course, you don’t need to be on holiday to avail of the new plan. SweetEscape is suited for whatever occasion that requires photography, which is really anything nowadays. For men, in particular, the service is a boon for proposals or bachelor parties. Other activities such as riding a bike on the beach, reunions, birthdays, or just your average Instagram day are also applicable.

After all the snaps are taken, all you need to do is choose and then download the final set of memories via the SweetEscape app or website. At the end of the day, apart from the great selection of images that will make your nosy neighbor jealous, what the service offers is freedom.
