Pre-wedding photos in Gangnam, South Korea

25 Mar

Anyong everyone! So after I had left Malaysia for Korea, I didn’t get much time to go around Seoul because I was preparing for my own wedding! So in Korea, being a noob in organizing a wedding, IΒ went to a wedding expo to find out where I could get my pre-wedding photos done. Just to let you know, if you decide on a particular studio at the wedding expo, it is much more expensive. It’s cheaper to go to the studio itself to get a pre-wedding photo-shoot package deal. πŸ™‚ But going to a wedding expo is definitely a must to see all the different profiles for different studios. I looked through at least 10 different portfolios and ended up choosing the one from Luna Studio. Their websiteΒ is not really up to date, but they do have a Β blog, which has a portfolio of their pre-wedding photo-shoots. (In Korea it is common to have a blog that is used as a website to promote their products). Please do mind that the website is in Korean, but if you just want to browse through their photos, just scroll down and look on the left column and click on any link below Luna Studio Portfolio, for e.g. 2013 Olive Juice. Luna studio provided me with their own package that included make up, rental of the dress, photography for the pre-wedding photo-shoot and forΒ the wedding day itself. They sent me a schedule in advance and all I needed to do was to show up with myΒ fiancΓ© for the dress trial, then the photo-shoot day itself. So on the pre-wedding photoshoot day, we had to be at the make up studio by 7.30am.

The photoshoot started at 12pm and ended around 6pm. Β We didn’t have much time to eat so I would suggest that if you ever do go for this photoshoot, bring some food!! My fiance and I were both starrrving by the end of it. For me, I just let loose and I believe I had 3 portions of bbq straight after the photoshoot. But after receiving the photos, we both realized it was totally worth putting in so much effort because the photos just looked so amazing. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Luna Studio!
