I'm Alaina (Soo Hyun) - traveler, blogger, videographer, and photographer, currently based in Seoul, Korea.
Inspired by movement, happy moments, and the beauty of candids, I aspire to curate each shoot based on comfort and the most natural settings possible. Though I've worked and am comfortable working with both individuals and groups, gymnasts, babies, children, events, and festivals, in both natural and posed settings, there's just something about capturing little caught-off-guard moments. Believe me, I know how intimidating it can be to have a stranger pointing a huge camera towards you! I try to make shoots as comfortable as possible, incorporating "everyday life" to add naturality to the idea of having someone photograph you.
I was nine years old when my parents gifted me a point-and-shoot and a video camcorder. My dad, an avid photographer himself, was eager to teach me the basics, being super patient with me (even when I almost dropped the camera into the ocean). Much has changed since then (thankfully, I've gotten much better at handling my camera!), but my interest in documenting action, laughter, and beautiful moments, has remained the same.
I look forward to working with you to create the perfect shoot!
