What did they say
about the experience?

Taking photos with Yun feels very comfortable, and she's really good at making me feel at ease and laugh. You probably can't tell from the wedding photos that I was suffering from adenovirus at the time. Looking at the photos, I almost forgot how uncomfortable physically I felt that day, and I even had a fever the next day. But all it remains, are the happy and blissful moments. Traditional weddings are like a ceremony. Everyone who came seemed satisfied and happy, which was my greatest satisfaction. There were many traditional elements, with many details, it is very different from modern ceremony processes. From the Korean traditional band, the sedan chair, the rituals, the rice tossing, to the family blessings, there were many beautiful craftsmanship details in everything from clothing to props. Yun pays attention to every details, she came the day before to learn about the traditions,  hooting a Korean traditional wedding felt like running a marathon. Thank you, Yun, for capturing such a wonderful day for us.
