For couples travelling to South Korea for a variety of reasons such as celebrating their recent engagement, an upcoming birthday or even an anniversary, here is something for you to chew over: Why not plan for a couple photoshoot while on vacation? The concept of a casual couple shoot is also known as “date snaps” and it is about capturing moments of your date in a fuss-free and fun manner.

In this article, we list some of our favourite outdoor pre-wedding photoshoots done in Korea that we hope you can gain some inspirations from.

A picnic date photoshoot will be most alluring during spring with flowers in full bloom, or during autumn when the branches in the parks are thick with leaves in reddish brown hues!
