If you’re anything like my wife, you’ve become obsessed with South Korean everything: K-Pop, K-Drama, K-Beauty, and K-Food. South Korea is a breathtaking destination that offers a unique experience of flavor, culture, and sorry, S(e)oul. The city of Seoul offers scenic views everywhere you look offering a photographer’s dream of romantic and playful backgrounds.
Find someone who speaks your language:
Use Google, Instagram, etc. to look for photographers that are in Seoul or are willing to travel.
Look through a photographer’s portfolio to see if your styles match.
Seoul is a vibrant and diverse city that combines traditional South Korean culture with modern influences. Here are some ideas so you can be the star of your own K-drama.

My job is to scout locations based on a person’s preferences that fit and reflect their personality. A good photographer is able to choose the right backgrounds for the photoshoot as conditions such as weather and time of year can really change the look and feel of the photo.
The best season to take photos in Seoul depends on your preferences and the kind of scenery you want to capture. Seoul experiences distinct seasons, each offering its own unique photographic opportunities:
Spring (April to early May):
Summer (June to August):
Autumn (September to November):
Winter (December to February):
Late Winter (February to early March):
Ultimately, the best time for photography in Seoul depends on your personal preferences and the type of shots you want. Each season brings its own charm and visual appeal, so consider what you want to capture and plan your visit accordingly.
From interesting landmarks, Buddhist temples, teahouses, cute cafes, hip neighbourhoods, and markets lining the streets, Seoul offers something for everyone, day and night. Don’t forget to end one of your nights with bingsu, one of my favorite desserts.
