Engagement photography session: Kaya and Jang Sik

“CC – is what Korean people call a Campus Couple or a Company Couple, who wouldn’t be able to meet otherwise.”

A couple of months ago a friend of a friend recommended me to Kaya, who was looking for a local photographer to capture her engagement. Kaya and Jang Sik met while studying at KAIST and wanted to use the campus of this prestigious science and technology-driven university in order to document their love. I couldn’t have been more thrilled when her desire to be photographed there fell on none other but the Cherry Blossoms season, which this university is pretty famous for. Hoards of picnicking and selfie-taking crowds descend the grounds of KAIST as soon as the cherry trees show any sign of spring. So it was decided to meet in the early hours of a weekday when hopefully we’ll get to roam at our will.

8 am – the earliest I’ve ever awoken my camera gear and with a coffee in the other hand, we were off. Kaya had a few places in mind, which were perfect since the campus is pretty large and I knew she would be more familiar with it than I ever could be. She even showed me a place which had quickly become my new favorite spot for photographing among cherry blossoms, because the trees were as tall as the mountain itself. Score!

Here are the rest from our morning session:

In the evening, we agreed to meet up for a change of the outfits and a bit of a different feel. Casual style was very fun with their matching shoes, which are very Korean-style!

And then the sun dipped below the horizon and by utilizing an external flash, I was able to capture my favorite image to date. I’ve had this place in mind for a while, but haven’t had the time nor the couple to capture. I’m very happy that Kaya and Jang Sik’s engagement shoot happened the way it did when it did. It was perfect!


If you or someone you know is looking for a photography session to celebrate your event or milestone or just because. Let me be your go-to photographer! I would love to capture your special day! Let’s get in touch.
