Rosanna and Andrew – Seoul Pre-wedding Photographer

Rosanna contacted me in September looking for a Seoul pre-wedding photographer to do something “not cheesy”. Rosanna and Andrew met under what they consider fairly unlikely circumstances. In a small town in Canada where neither of them had expected anything life changing to happen. An item left at a party to be returned, a second meeting, and Rosanna and Andrew never looked back. They have spent time apart, respectively pursuing their lives in England and Australia, before coming to Korea […]

Ground Jam Promo Kit: Korea Photographer

At a recent small flash workshop I ran for Flash Light Expeditions here in Seoul, I encouraged one of my students, Damari, to introduce himself to a man sitting closeby our location who he wanted to photograph. That man was Woosik Park, and was more than happy to come over for a portrait in our three light setup of the day. We exchanged numbers after the shoot and kept in touch so that Damari and I might organise a full […]

Nadya and Guhya – Seoul Wedding Photographer

Last, I had the pleasure of being Nadya and Guhya’s wedding photographer. I have a great deal of respect for those who choose to get married in Seoul. It can be difficult to organise a wedding that breaks out of the mould here. Nadya and Guhya did just that. They personalised their wedding and made a wonderful day for everyone. The wedding party consisted of both Nadya and Guhya’s families who flew in from Indonesia and Kazakhstan for the ceremony, […]

Vanessa and JR – Seoul Lifestyle Photographer

Vanessa and JR recently visited Seoul from Singapore. Vanessa had been here before on exchange, but it was her and JR’s first trip to Seoul as a couple. They wanted to make some lifestyle portraits that would showcase their love for each other and their trip to Seoul. Vanessa told me straight up that they were a fun and outgoing couple and that they wanted to have that shine through in the pictures. We picked an afternoon during their short […]

Colin and Sara – Seoul Wedding Photographer

In the winter of 2011, Colin and Sara got in touch with me about doing some post wedding photography to add to their album made by their previous wedding photographer back in the United States, and commemorate their time in Seoul, Korea as it came to an end. Colin is also an excellent photographer (you can see his work on his website), and had a location in mind that he and Sara would like to use for their shoot – […]

Travel Photography Bag – The F-Stop Satori EXP Backpack

This review details my reaction to using the F-Stop Gear Satori EXP 62 litre backpack as a travel photography bag. I will explain my choice behind purchasing this backpack, and how I configure the medium ICU for my purposes. Then I will go into the other items I carry in the bag on long trips and how they fit into the bag itself. For an amazing in depth look at the bag, I recommend you visit Dan Carr’s blog for […]

Ayden's Birthday - Family Photographer

Ayden’s Second Birthday – Family Photographer

My long term friends Dean and Kelly recently invited me to photograph their son Ayden’s second birthday at Myuna Farm just east of Melbourne. We had a great day out and Ayden enjoyed every moment of it. Anyone thinking of having a children’s birthday party out should definitely consider this place. They have all sorts of animals, displays, and even a train for the kids to ride on. Such a happy family makes my job so easy! Thanks for having […]

Adoption First Meeting

Adoption Photographer – First Meeting – Teague’s New Family

It has been far too long since I blogged about the joy that is adoption and being an adoption photographer, and far too long since this amazing couple picked up their son. Now that my feet are safely back on the ground, it is time to share this incredible story from Seoul, Korea with you. This is Wade and Holly’s adoption first meeting with their son Teague. Holly and Wade travelled to Seoul to sign the final forms and collect […]

Lucy’s Adoption – Korea Family Photographer

Yesterday’s amazing session had me up late thinking about this family, and how Lucy’s first night with her new kin was going. Being an adoption photographer means reliving the days events when you get home. Sorting through the photos, experiencing the joy and pain all over again. It is a wonderful job, and I could wait to complete the second chapter with Lucy and her family the next day. I met Lucy’s troupe again for their family session in Deoksugung, […]

Lucy’s Adoption Photography Story

Earlier this week, Lisa, Brian, and their biological son Jack came to Seoul to meet the newest member of their family, Lucy. A sweet, quiet, somewhat reserved baby girl, Lucy took a little while to open up to her new family. But when she did, it was smiles all around and she took her new brother by the hand to show him around. This is what makes adoption photography so special. I was thrilled to be the family photographer they chose […]
