Nami Island Family Snow

Nami Island Family Photography

The heat of Seoul’s summer still grips us and I find myself longing for cooler weather. We’ve had weeks and weeks of soaring temperatures and unbearable humidity. As I was browsing my collection looking for some work to post, I came across this wonderful Nami Island family photography session from last winter. When Faith contacted me, she was looking to take her family out somewhere with snow for some family portraits while they were in Korea. Initially, I’m always a […]

Family Portraits with the Chens

Judy and Tim got in touch leading up to taking custody of their son, Nathan, hoping to do some family portraits after the big day. We chatted for a while and scheduled our session in for a Sunday morning. Thankfully, the typhoon had passed and it looked like we’d have beautiful skies for our session. When we arrived, it was clear that Nathan was grieving a little and didn’t want anyone but Judy. I kept my distance and we made a […]

Family Portrait Photographer Seoul, Korea - Hudec

A Morning with the Hudec Family

It’s always great to get a recommendation from another family. In this case, the Hudecs had heard about me from my session with the Love family. I had a great session with them last year, so I was excited at the chance to work with some of their friends! My conversation with Elizabeth was short and easy. We knew what we wanted to achieve so it was just a case of picking where and when we would meet. The family […]

Spring Family Photoshoot in Seoul

Black Family Photo Shoot in Yeouido Park

An Air Quality Rating of “hazardous” may not seem like the perfect time for a family photoshoot, but the Black family and I made our way out to Yeouido Park nonetheless. We spent an hour together in the park mixing it up between letting the boys play and getting them where we needed them for the shoot. I first worked with the Black family around two years ago when Gibson was about to turn one. We had a great session […]

Wedding Photographer in Seoul - Haram and Phuong 전통혼례 스냅

Haram and Phuong’s Traditional Korean Wedding

Korea has a rich wedding tradition that is deeply ingrained in their history and culture. Despite many now choosing to follow a mix of Western and Korean ideals when having their ceremony, many venues still offer an event that draws on Korea’s traditional values and practices. Haram and Phuong chose to celebrate the Korean end of their wedding in this style at Samcheonggak in Seoul. Haram hails of Korean heritage and Phuong of Vietnamese heritage. They are both architects based […]

Armstrong Family Photography in Seoul, Korea

When Janelle reached out to me, I was waiting for a train from Itanagar to Guwahati in India at the end of a trip for my Tattoos of Asia project. It was an unplanned early exit, as we found out that rebel groups would be closing the roads out of Arunachal Pradesh and if we wanted to leave we should do it now. So, I was quite excited to get some good news in my inbox as I was sitting […]

Ramsey Family Custody Day in Seoul

Of all the work I do, custody photography sessions with families are still the ones that give me the most trepidation beforehand. There is so much to capture, so many emotions, and so little that can be predicted or prepared for. Nothing is as difficult to photograph or as easy to immerse myself in than one of these sessions. Working with the Ramseys for their custody day was a really rewarding experience. Poor Gage had a bad cold and his […]

Pottier Family – Photographer in Seoul

What a fun session! There’s nothing quite like the challenge of getting a couple of cold children to have some serious fun. Alice had contacted me when the weather was lovely and warm and was aiming for an Autumn session. We got together and I spent an hour or so playing with their children, Antoine and Clemence, so we could start off on the right foot at our session. By the end of that, I had a good idea of […]

Year in Review – Part 1 – Seoul, Korea Photographer

Yet another year has passed here in Seoul. It was a big one for me as a photographer and it seems to have gone by particularly quickly. Maybe it’s the amount of work I’ve been doing, maybe it’s the trips I’ve taken for Tattoos of Asia, or maybe I’m just starting to get old. Whatever it is, this has been a whirlwind year at WelkinLight Photography and I’d like to share some of it with you today. As always, I’ll […]
