[Tips]

The crazy thing is because this cafe is pretty new (newly opened less than 1 months) so you might have to queue to visit this cafe. I queued for 1 hour before I can enter and experience the cafe. The  cafe opens at 11.30am during weekday,  but people already queue from 10.30am. Crazy! You also need to queue for trying the uniform. 181128KCCH-2493

Sam & Lisa

Autumn in Korea never dissapoint you, it’s very beautiful, especially this year when the leaves turning color earlier. I guess this is the greatest gift from God for this sweet couple, Sam & Lisa, who are going to get married this week. Since the prewedding shoot need to be done earlier, that’s why autumn came earlier as well.

Sam is my christian community leader in campus who always inspires me to grow more spiritually. His love to God is amazing which motivates me to love God as well. I feel so blessed to know him in person, and also being someone to capture their sweetest moment through a prewedding shoot.

Congratulation for Sam and Lisa. Wish you a happilly ever after marriage in Christ.
