Getting around any city with a good transportation infrastructure (like what you’ll find in Korea) is not difficult. Yet, when it comes to getting around quickly and comfortably during your photo shoot, time is indeed money and some ways of getting around simply trump others.
Fortunately, Korea is quite pedestrian-friendly and good infrastructure for public transportation such as subway, bus, Taxi.
Yet, some locations are simply geographically too far apart from Seoul. eg.Nami island, Petite France. In this case, you need to arrange a private vehicle. We are a group of travel professionals, so you can arrange your own vehicle and driver via us. Or you can purchase a tour shuttle bus.
If you feel like you would like to get around easier or comfortably, you can also request private transportation. You may also consider our “Photography Tour” which already includes a private vehicle with hotel pick-up and drop-off. Q. Are children (or babies) included in the number of people?
The reasons why some service areas have a child discount policy, simply because children have a smaller capacity of services than adults. For example, children eat much less than adults so the restaurant could offer the “Children Discount” menu or service. However, taking a child or baby photo usually requires more effort than an adult. Hanbok rental and other expenses regarding photo shoot session are also treated the same as adults. So, there is no “Children Discount” for the photography package. Q. What if it rains on the day of the shoot?
Then that would be the best time to take out your best umbrella and have lots of fun dancing in the rain. But.. if you’re not up for that, we’ll try our best to reschedule your session for another time. Here’s a tip though, check the weather forecast at your destination a week prior to your shoot date. Q. How will the photos be edited?
The photos that will be ready to be downloaded will be lightly edited with color adjustments. However, your photographer or HaB Korea admins can select some of your photos and improve them by editing or retouching. In that case, those photos will be uploaded in the separate folder. You may also request personal editing of your photos with extra cost. Q. Will my pictures be shared?
We love to feature our customers' photos and our photographers’ works on our blog or social media channels. However, if you prefer to keep it private, please let us know in advance or let your photographer on your shooting date. Q. What’s the difference between traditional hanbok and themed hanbok?
Traditional Hanbok is a simple and elegant design that Korean people wear on holidays or special occasions. It is treated as a basic option in most hanbok rental shops and forms the lowest price range from KRW 10,000 won.
Themed Hanbok is more popular among young people because it has a more colorful and pattern than the traditional Hanbok. These new forms of hanbok are also called referred to as “fusion hanbok” in Korea, and give off a different ambiance than the “modernized hanbok”. The cost of rentals for themed hanbok is normally 2 times higher than traditional hanbok special-purpose hanboks such as wedding hanbok are quite expensive.
