Korean weather and seasons have their own distinctive charm and beauty, which is why it’s important to choose the right time for your pre-wedding photoshoot. Korea is a beautiful and diverse country that offers hundreds of picturesque locations for a photoshoot – stunning landscapes, centuries-old temples, and fascinating culture make it the perfect backdrop for beautiful photographs with your loved one. But you might be wondering about when to fly out in order to capture South Korea at its best—this blog post will help you choose the best time to visit Korea for your photoshoot.

Spring (March to May)

Spring is the season when cherry blossoms bloom all over Korea, and with the weather warming up, it makes for the perfect time for a romantic photoshoot. Picture yourself walking through a beautiful cherry blossom tunnel or sitting under a tree full of pink and white petals. Spring in Korea is warm, with an average temperature ranging from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius. Other flowers, such as magnolias and azaleas, also come into full bloom during this season, making it a colorful and vibrant time for a photoshoot.

The weather during May is warm without being too hot, and the landscape is practically exploding with beautiful flowers and vibrant greenery. It’s hard to go wrong with such a stunning backdrop for your special day. Plus, with plenty of sunny days, you’re bound to get some amazing shots that you’ll treasure for years to come. This is the busiest time of year and often books up a year in advance so do get in touch early to make sure your date isn’t scooped up.

Summer (June to August)

Summers in Korea can be hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 35 degrees Celsius.

June is a great time to consider. The weather is warm, but not too hot, making it comfortable to be outside for extended periods of time. Plus, the flowers and greenery are in full bloom, providing a gorgeous backdrop for your photos. You can also visit Jeju Island, which is famous for its beautiful beaches and crystal-clear water, and stunning hydrangeas. The natural beauty of Korea in June is hard to beat. Alternatively, you can head to the countryside, where you’ll find fields of tall green grass and golden sunsets over the mountains.

However, let’s talk about July or August pre-wedding shoots. My advice? Hold off on those gowns and suits for now. The scorching heat and suffocating humidity don’t make for the most flattering or comfortable settings. Plus allllllllllllllll the rain. Trust me, there’s no need to risk it! Instead, patiently wait for September when the humidity starts to ease up – a picture-perfect opportunity awaits.

Autumn (September to November)

Autumn in Korea is a magical season, with the leaves turning into vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow with cool weather. This season is perfect for a scenic photoshoot in the mountains or a walk through a park lined with golden ginkgo trees. The weather in autumn is mild, with an average temperature ranging from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius.

October weather in Korea is arguably one of the best times to visit the country for a pre-wedding photoshoot. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colors, and the backdrop of autumn foliage can create a stunning photo album that will be cherished for years to come. It’s no wonder that October is a popular time for couples to book their shoots, so it’s advisable to plan far in advance to ensure availability. I promise the picturesque scenery and comfortable temperatures make it worth the extra effort to lock in your plans early. As an added bonus, you’ll get to experience the unique beauty of Korea’s fall season.

Korea’s November skies are a treat for both locals and tourists who indulge in outdoor activities. The clear blue skies are the perfect accompaniment to winter’s onset, making it an ideal month for both indoor and outdoor pursuits. The country is bustling for the last time before everyone goes into hibernation mode for the winter.

Winter (December to February)

Winters in Korea bring cold and snowy weather, with an average temperature ranging from -5 to 5 degrees Celsius. However, this season also offers a unique and magical landscape for a photoshoot. Imagine yourself in a snow-covered forest or walking through a frozen lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Winter in Korea is the perfect time for a cozy and romantic photoshoot, with a hot cup of cocoa to warm you up in between shots.

Korea’s weather and seasons offer endless options for a beautiful and memorable photoshoot. From cherry blossom tunnels in spring to snow-capped mountains in winter, there’s something for every couple and every style. By choosing the right season for your photoshoot, you can capture the best of Korea’s natural beauty and create memories that will last a lifetime. So pack your bags and head to Korea for the perfect pre-wedding photoshoot!
