12 Korean Couple Photoshoot Ideas That You’d Definitely Want To Try Out!

For couples travelling to South Korea for a variety of reasons such as celebrating their recent engagement, an upcoming birthday or even an anniversary, here is something for you to chew over! Why not plan for a couple photoshoot while on vacation? The concept of a casual couple shoot is also known as “date snaps”. It is about capturing moments of your date in a fuss-free and fun manner. This can be completed in a short session of 4 hours with your photographer.

In this article, we list some of our best-loved outdoor pre-wedding photoshoots done in Korea that we hope you can gain some inspirations from.

1. Have a romantic picnic date

A picnic date photoshoot will be the most alluring during the spring season with flowers around in full bloom. Or during the autumn season when the branches in the parks are thick with leaves in reddish brown hues!

5. Under the umbrella of cherry blossom trees

Since cherry blossoms have been understood to represent the beauty of life, celebrate the life you have together with your significant other! Furthermore, we don’t get to experience the cherry blossom season in Singapore, so a photoshoot would be the perfect opportunity to capture these memories!

If you’re planning for a photoshoot with the cherry blossoms, see our 10 recommended locations!
