This beautiful couple contacted me to do their formal wedding photos later this October. Hyun Jin is a fireman and Annemie (a fellow South African), is a teacher. I was totally over the moon that the couple had decided to make the four-hour trip from Gyeongju to consult with me in person about their session. Let me explain why…… Most “long distance” clients consult with me via email and the occasional text msg or phone call before we finally get to meet in person on the day of their photo session. I cannot stress enough just how much value meeting clients face to face beforehand adds to their shoot. It gives me SO MUCH MORE insight into their personality, style, preferences and the way they interact with each other. I do believe that the magic I managed to capture between Hyun Jin and Annemie in this shoot was a direct result of our face to face encounter beforehand.
