You’ll get direction from me and feedback when posing — I’ll always make sure you are comfortable and cared for. My main task is to put you at ease. Be at ease. Be yourselves. Be adventurous. If that sounds like the way you want to spend your wedding day, then you’ve found your photographer.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Each wedding and elopement is one of a kind. For 6 hours I usually deliver a minimum 400 photos. You will get an online gallery that you can send to your family and friends. I also send polaroids and a hard copy of photographs. Albums are not included in the package. Each additional hour is $400.
In addition to pictures, I send a questionnaire to get the full picture of you and your day, help you plan your timeline, call a month before your wedding to map out the details and communicate with expertise and empathy.
Yes, of course! It’s sad that I even have to add this question. I believe love thrives when it comes in every form. You shouldn’t be judged for who you love. All love matters. All love deserves to be celebrated.
I have a great team of second photographers that always work for me. These photographers have their own wedding businesses and years of experience behind them. I hire photographers that have a similar photojournalism style and that I trust tremendously. The second photographer always stays with the groomsmen in the morning then throughout the day focuses on candids and getting those moments that I won’t be able to get. I recommend getting a second photographer if you have more than 100 people attending your wedding.
Well, you’re in luck, because I’m dreaming of traveling. Travel has always been a huge part of my life and if you’re taking a journey to say your vows, I’m betting we share that passion. I was born in Seoul, Korea, lived in Washington state, Germany and Belgium. Traveling is a part of who I am and my business. Destination weddings and elopements are the most beautiful union of love and location. I can’t wait to see the world with you and share your love story with the world.
One of the biggest tips that I give my clients is to match your timeline to the light. This is the first tip that I tell every single one of my clients, and it is downright vital if you want beautiful light in your images. I always recommend doing couple’s and bridal party portraits during golden hour. So make sure to check what time the sun is going to set on your wedding day and plan for photos. The last thing you want is to be eating your wedding dinner during the world’s most beautiful sunset!
Another tip is always make sure you have at least 30 minutes for couple photographs. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is when I step away with my couples from the celebration for an intimate photo session. Weddings can be very chaotic, and finding alone time for the couple is so important. During each wedding, I try to give my clients 10 minutes of alone time before I start taking photographs. This way, they can soak everything in and take a break from the details of their day. And this feels like common sense, but it’s worth emphasizing: the more time you spend taking photos, the more photographs you will get! It will also allow your photographer more time to be creative.
Communication is key, so first ensure that your photographer is responsive and up front. Next, find a photographer that matches your photography style, personality, and price. It is so important that you vibe well with them because you’ll probably spend more time with your photographer than your partner or anyone else? Don’t compromise on any of your values in photography and get to know your photographer’s values as well.
