[ Seoul ] 韓式星級造型婚紗日
the photography studio.
Today is the day! 一早 6 點多起來.
Woke up around 6 in the morning.
一早Hotel的 breakfast buffet, 有 mussels and pasta!
早上 7:45am 的保母車從 hotel 載我們到作造型的 LKJ 造型工作室. 我是先弄髮型, 基本上studio 也是拿著參考本問我想要哪種 style. 他們再做調整.
Our mini van picked us up around 7:45am from our hotel and then we were at the LKJ Hair Bis, apparently an award winning salon chain and a favourite among celebrities. I basically choose a style that I want and the stylist will see how to adjust it for me.
髮型師才剛和一個韓國明星團體出國辦演唱會回來, 這邊比較讓人有點驚訝的是他們會放一個像煮火鍋那種瓦斯爐在工具台上然後把一些器具 (例如要捲髮或夾翹眼睫毛的) 放在那瓦斯爐上 "熱" 一下＆直接用在客人的頭髮/眼睫毛上.. 一開始看得有點怕怕的...
Lots of hair spray!! To curl my hair and eyelashes, they pretty much heat the "tools" up on a gas stove on those portable karts used in hair salons first... wow.
At the same time, Mr. has gone to the "make-up" room to get the make-up done!
然後我髮型差不多就到化妝區, 桌上滿滿的各式各樣的 make-up 還真是impressive!
After quite some time, then it was my turn to go to the make-up room. Look at all those colours and tools...
底妝先由類似助理的負責, 正式上妝的我是由他們的副室長 "操筆". 基本上他們也是一開始先問想要畫什麼樣的, 我們就拿之前準備的 reference 檔案, 說要畫出來大概是這樣, ＆不愧是大師級, 看一眼就知道要怎麼畫.
The foundation was done by an assistant. Then the master came to do the "main part". We showed what style of make-up we want and they can just know it and do it!
只不過我的皮膚在這幾個月上一連串忙個不停/沒法早睡＆沒有特別敷臉+韓國比較乾的狀況下, 妝畫完時也開始爆裂了 @_@ 好在照片上看起來不會太明顯...
My skin condition wasn't that good that day.. cause I was to busy with work for the previous months. Could not possibly sleep early. & It was kinda dry in Seoul so my make-up had a bit of difficulty staying on my face...
再回去完成頭髮的部分後, 婚紗店的阿姨也來了, 我就去後面換婚紗準備去攝影棚啦 (走出門去坐專車時還真的超級冷!!!!)
After the make-up was done, then I was back to finish up my hairdo and change into the wedding gown. Walking out of the studio to our mini van in this was FREEZING!!!!
到了攝影棚先到小房間攝影師和我們說明等一下拍照要拍什麼 & 如何聽幾個指令調整動作. 接著我們就開始開拍!
After a short briefing, then we started our photoshoot!
基本上至攝影師說要拍哪邊&怎麼擺, 但是同時會有她的一位助手 & 還有婚紗店的阿姨 & 我們的翻譯會支援各個需要協助調整的部分. 婚紗店的阿姨會帶很多改變造型的小物＆幫我作造型變化＆補妝.
There was the main photographer doing the photoshoot and a photographer assistant to help adjust our poses/posture or the way things are laid out. There was also an auntie from the wedding dress place to help me wear/remove the wedding gowns/dresses. & also help me change my hairstyle with different accessories (main hairdo doesn't change). She also brought earrings, necklaces, accessories for hair and the dress along to help me put the suitable ones on so it looks like I wore many dresses for the photoshoot. & I basically couldn't move without the aunt helping me holding the dresses.
我超喜歡我這次拍照的白紗 - 一件是 Ver Wang 的花苞裙，另外一件是這間感覺比較優雅簡單的白紗.
I love the white wedding gowns for this photoshoot. One was a Vera Wang and the other one was this simple one.
戴大皇冠囉!!! 不只有這個可以戴, 但是這個是最大的.
Got a big tiara!! Got to wear other small ones as well. But this one was the biggest of all.
我們的攝影棚有室內,半室外 + 室外的部分 (在屋頂上..)
The studio is half open (just open the glass door and we were pretty much outside..) There was the balcony (as shown in the photo above) and the upperfloor openair space.
樓頂戶外的這個場景也超有復古感的, 超喜歡, 不過我們這次沒有拍到這個景, 這個晚上比較好看.
This scene on the rooftop was really nice. I love it but too bad we didn't get to take a photo with this scene. This was more suitable for the night scene. (You could reserve to take your wedding photos at night at this studio..)
It was literally FREEZING when we were outside... But when we were under the sun, it was a bit warmer.
拍攝的過程就是一直換換換, 變變變! 我們總共換了 20 幾個 set.
The photography-taking process was pretty structured. We quickly and swiftly moved through the various sets and wore different accessories for different sets.
後面的幾個景我們還要到位在另外一棟建築內的室內棚 (沒暖氣也是很冷... 就算是在室內..)
For the last few sets we did it in a studio (same studio) at a nearby building. It had no heater inside so it was freezing inside!!
到後面在那邊換來換去真的是累... 不過最後也差不多在下午 4 點多結束吧, 車子載我們和另外一組新人回去 hotel, 沒想到從江南回南大門的路上還滿塞.. 這似乎好像是常態.
It was quite tiring at the end but it only took us half a day to get all that photoshooting done. We left around 4pm and got on our mini van with another couple from HK. The traffic back from Gangnam back to Namdaemun was pretty bad so it took us a while to get back.
到了 hotel 大概整理一下/卸一下妝就去附近覓食, 後來選了間道地的韓國料理店又去吃泡菜鍋.
After we removed our makeup and got ready at the hotel, we were out to find food. We found an interesting local Korean hotpot place near the hotel.
我們也挑了個當地的小米酒, 發酵味有些重&有點濃稍稍稠, 但還滿不錯的.
We also chose a local rice wine. It was a bit thick but pretty interesting taste.
而且我們是用這樣的像小洗澡盆的這個杯子喝! 好 rough 啊！
We had to drink the rice wine with this! lol.
Our appetizers (restaurant just came with this - no extra charge).
Bubbling & sizzling kimchi pot! It was quite spicy but pretty good..
但我挑了個看起來還滿清淡的貝類湯.. 沒想到清是清, 他裡面居然有放綠色辣椒.. 所以湯也是辣的.. 快昏倒. 不過.. 還是不錯啦.
I chose a shellfish pot that was suppose to look not so spicy. But I did not know those green things in there were chilli too!!! So the soup was spicy... But it was quite good nevertheless.
晚上 JG 自己跑去和韓國的同事吃第二攤. 我和 J 就又去附近發現新大陸.
After our early dinner, JG went out to have a second round of dinner with his colleagues while J and I went to explore the nearby places.
附近也是有些滿特別地餐廳/cafe. 這間是連鎖的 Zoo Coffee. 裡面會有些大隻的動物絨毛娃娃.
There was some interesting restaurants/cafes. This one is a chain with a zoo theme.
