A beautiful outdoor wedding in the outskirts of Seoul (South Korea) under a sea of romantic fairy lights. Such a wonderful celebration of love and life between a tight knit community.
A wedding almost two years in the making! Due to COVID restrictions, Stone and Eunice had to postpone their wedding in Korea until everyone was able to travel again. It was so worth the wait as their closest family gathered to celebrate them in Seoul and danced the night away on a boat on the Han River.
The year got off to a slow start (which was quite alarming), but now I realize why. The universe was giving me the space to re-group. In this time I got to know myself a little better, identify where I was headed and what I wanted for my business. Also the kind of experience I wanted to create for my clients and re-evaluate my photographic style. This lead me (finally) to switch camera systems. It has been something I’ve been wanting to do for a few years now, but have been quite apprehensive about. I am in love with my new tools and the experience they give me!
The couple, living in Australia, chose the beautiful Youngsanjae Hanok Hotel in Mokpo, for their destination wedding. They wanted something very unique and with Solbee’s family living in Korea, it was the perfect choice. Although they chose a traditional Korean wedding ceremony (with a number of their guests from Australia and other countries), Glenn and Solbee included some western style and tradition too.
This couple is the closest you’ll get to perfection, and so I was extremely flattered when Jason and Joanne Son chose me to be their wedding photographer. You’ve all heard of the “fairy tale wedding”, well this is it right here! Carefully planned down to the last detail, the Son wedding was magical, and magic is what I hope shines through in this blog post.
Their story began in May of 2016 when Madeleine was out and about in Yeosu with her dog, Henry. Hyeonsoo, who was on vacation, spotted the two, went over to say “hello” and ended up spending the rest of the day taking in the sites of Yeosu with Madeleine and Henry. The rest, as they say, is history.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to document a beautiful wedding in Seoul, Korea’s capital. The awful summer heat had just passed by a week ago and I was excited to get out and enjoy a lovely outdoor ceremony. Another reason I was excited about this particular wedding was because not only is the groom a fellow South African, but he is a great photographer here in Korea too.
On a magnificent fall morning, I made the trip down to the quaint county of Gochang where I was to photograph a lovely traditional wedding. Close friends and family came from all parts of the country to celebrate the marriage of Seong-cheol and In-hye. The couple have been together for years so this was really a just formality. Even so, it was a lovely celebration enjoyed by all!
