Where you'll be

Gyeongbokgung Palace, located north of Gwanghwamun Square, is one of the most iconic sights in all of Korea thanks to its long and storied history. Construction on Gyeongbokgung Palace was completed in 1395 at the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung, which means “palace greatly blessed by Heaven,” was built in the heart of Seoul surrounded by Mount Bugaksan and Mount Namsan.

Jun was very professional and created a good vibe for us during the photoshoot. He knows specific locations within the palace that are perfect for pictures. Just trust him, and he'll take great pics for you. I highly recommend booking during spring when it's not too hot but not too cold. Highly recommend!!

This photoshoot was amazing!!! Sometimes it is a bit awkward taking photos on your own but Jun makes you feel comfortable and gives you tips on poses. I was very impressed with the photos that he took and was in awe that I could look that amazing. The quality of the photos are amazing and you should definitely book with him! You will not be disappointed :)

We visited Seoul for the adoption of our son and wanted to have a family photoshoot at the Gyeongbokgung Palace (with everyone wearing the traditional Korean hanboks). Our son was not in the best mood during the shoot (understandably so) but Jun was super patient and accommodating the entire time - he made our son feel comfortable. We managed to get beautiful shots and will have these photos as keepsakes for our son and his adoption journey. Jun has a great eye for interesting compositions and understands natural lighting. Highly recommend!

Jun was such a pleasure to work with! I booked this photoshoot for my friend's birthday, and Jun was an expert at teaching us how to pose and setting up the best shots. It was a very cold morning, and he gave us many handwarmers to keep us comfortable. The meeting location is right next to the hanbok shop which makes the entire process very simple. With your hanbok, you get free entrance into the palace which adds to the overall value. After renting our hanbok (which took about 40 minutes because there were other a few other customers ahead of us, and my friend and I are are pretty indecisive), we had a little over an hour to take photos. It was more than enough time to get everything done. I can't recommend this experience enough. Thank you, Jun!

Jun is an absolute pro at making the shoot comfortable and fun while making you look like a supermodel! Seriously. I've been suffering from low self esteem lately and Jun's shots and composition made me feel like I could be featured on a travel magazine. If you're unsure whether to book the photoshoot with Jun, just do it! You won't regret it!

I can not recommend Zun enough! Amazing photographer and director, even when we felt awkward and didn’t know what to do, Zun helped capture our spirit and made us feel super confident and comfortable. He got so excited when he took a good photo he would turn the camera to show us before complimenting us and moving to the next spot. At the end of the shoot, he gave us AMAZING dining recommendations and helped us get directions to our next location. Such a nice person, incredible hospitality. I HIGHLY recommend booking with Zun!!!
