Seoul Engagement Shoot That Is Fun and Fuss-free Like A Casual Date

It can be tiring and unnerving moving around in a foreign country in your wedding gown and suit for your pre-wedding photoshoot. If you are daunted by the prospect of having to uncomfortably move around in your wedding garb or by the multitude of stares you will attract, why not opt for a casual couple date shoot just like Chelsia and Chris. They decided to have their wedding photos taken while they were in South Korea for a trip in mid-February, opting to take natural-looking couple photos.

Together with Ashley and Junghoon of OneThreeOneFour, our couple headed to the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the streets of Samcheong-dong in Seoul in their matching couple sneakers and winter jackets for their pre-wedding couple date photoshoot.

The antiquated exhibition set made our couple look like they went back in time.

Chelsia and Chris’s first stop for their photoshoot was the National Folk Museum of Korea, located within the Gyeongbokgung Palace. They headed to the museum’s open-air exhibition where there was a replica of a street in a traditional village in late 19th century Korea. The antiquated exhibition set made our couple look like they went back in time.

A distinct place where tradition and the modern meet, Samcheong-dong is home to both traditional Korean houses, called Bukchon Hanok, and distinctive cafes, shops and galleries.

Chelsia and Chris then continued their photoshoot out in the streets of Samcheong-dong located just beside the Gyeongbokgung Palace. A distinct place where tradition and the modern meet, Samcheong-dong is home to both traditional Korean houses, called Bukchon Hanok, and distinctive cafes, shops and galleries. Around the streets of Samcheong-dong you will also find various beautiful murals painted on the walls. This mix of traditional and modern Korea creates a truly unique harmony in our couple’s pre-wedding pictures.

Throughout the shoot, Chelsia and Chris grew close to Ashley and Junghoon as they ate hotdogs on the street and had a cup of coffee in a cafe together, discussing the various aspects of Korean and Singapore style weddings. Chelsia shares that they “had a great time [during] the photoshoot” and that our photographers were “awesome”.
