Actually, I didn’t know that this many foreigners were coming to Korea just for a pre-wedding photoshoot. I saw an article about Chinese taking wedding pictures at Ewha Woman’s University campus in Seoul, but I thought it was only popular among Chinese people, which apparently is not true.
Korean people usually take wedding pictures in indoor-studios or Jeju Island which has been the most popular destination of honeymoon among Korean people. Of course, there are a lot of young new-weds who go abroad for the photoshoot.
As Korea has been getting popularity all over the world thanks to K-Pop and K-Drama, more and more foreigners visit Korea for a pre-wedding photoshoot, too.
There are countless concepts and locations you can choose for wedding pictures. Once you choose the theme you want, the studio will set up according to your requests. Then on photoshoot day, you will choose tuxedo and dresses in the morning. Staff will alter the costumes into your size. (It doesn’t take much time as many people might think)
Bride gets to choose 3 dresses, and the staff will get your hair done in 3 different styles that suit best for each dress.
