Chan was an awesome photographer. He made us feel so comfortable and the photos came out beautiful. He showed concern when the weather was freezing and got us heat packs. He is very friendly and fun to have as a photographer. He will hype you up and make you feel like a professional model. Thank you Chan :).

Hands down the best photography experience I've ever had. We got couple photos taken and Chan knew all the best places, poses, and exactly how to capture our relationship in a classy and fun way. We were able to social distance and wear masks in between photos and were outside after we rented the hanbok, so we felt very safe in terms of public health, too. Book him today; you won't regret it! We felt like a king and queen today. :)

This photography session with Chan was by far one of my most favorite experiences in Korea (and I had a lot of great experiences in SK). Chan was patient, kind, friendly and new exactly what he was doing. He helped me choose the most perfect Hanbok dress color and even when I had specific photography requests, he was able to adapt. I ended up with the most beautiful pictures from my session!! Chan is also very fluent in English and very friendly so the entire time, I felt comfortable like I was with a friend! Would absolutely do this again with Chan and recommend to all my friends!

Chan and Jason were so great! I’m normally very awkward but they helped give me ideas on how to pose. They were also helpful in choosing the hanbok. This is really important because other hanbok rental places wont try as hard. But with Chan and Jason, I can tell they really want you to feel beautiful!! Haha. It was so fun. And the photos were stunning!!

Chan and Jason were amazing. Between helping find beautiful locations and poses to just being completely down to earth and friendly, they made both me and my daughter's day. We were princesses for a day! If you want a truly unique and personalized set of memories to take home from your trip to Korea, this is it. Don't hesitate to book because these memories will last a lifetime.
