I'm a photographer and filmmaker from South Korea based in New York City. I specialize in portrait, headshot, event, wedding, and fashion photography. My experience in shooting film helped me not only with composing and editing pictures, but also with creating photoshoots grounded by a subtle story underneath the visuals. In other words, I aim to make my shots look and feel a little more cinematic. Creating visual art is my undying passion, and delivering the most beautiful and important moments of people’s lives in the form of photography warms my heart, as I can offer them a memory they can never lose.
A fun fact about me
I studied fashion design for fun and can sew dresses myself. Plus, I can give fashion advice to my clients!

I had an amazing photoshoot with Sehee this autumn! She is a talented photographer with a huge experience in what she does. Easy-going, friendly, focused. One of my best pictures so far. Highly recommend that studio!
Sehee's photoshoot was an engagement gift, that I have received 4 hours prior to the photoshoot. I had no time to style my hair, to prepare the outfits and to think about logistics. On top of that I work in marketing and I've been working with the best photographers in NYC, so my standards of photography is very-very high.
I am so thankful to my fiancé for this gift and for choosing Sehee. Her personality and professionalism were able to make us feel ourselves and relaxed in front of the camera. It was our first photoshoot as a couple and I cannot be happier with the results: just in 2 hours we were able to get stunning photos where our love was captured in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
I will absolutely recommend Sehee. Take at least 3 hours. And think about the locations you'd like to have a photoshoot in advance.
The hard part is to choose which photos we will print out :)
Thanks Sehee and Matt for the perfect day and memories!
We hired Sehee to shoot our elopement at our church and couldn't be more thrilled with her work!
We never planned to elope, but found ourselves having to replan our whole wedding since family couldn't travel to NYC because of COVID. I had a hard time finding a photographer for a short amount time that we trusted to capture the most important hour of our lives so far. After a few hours of searches/portfolios, I came across Sehee's stand out work and wanted to hire her. I'm so glad we did!
She's really responsive and communicative, making it easy to schedule. Once we had everything set, we appreciate that she took time to scout out the location in advanced and research poses for our portraits. She really went above and beyond in prep!
On the day of, she did a great job directing us and making us feel comfortable getting our picture taken. Neither of us are very experienced in getting our picture taken, so her instructions were really helpful! Once the ceremony was underway, she captured so many moments from so many different angles. When we got our pictures, we were blown away, not only by her skills, but also that she was able to provide so many of our special moments that we will treasure forever.
We highly recommend!
I can't rave about Sehee enough. We first worked with her last year for holiday photos for our family when our little one was an infant and we received so many compliments from friends and family about our portraits! We loved her work so much that she was our top choice for family photos again this year. She arrives early to scout out the location and find the absolute best spots for the photos. She has an incredible eye and an ability to make people at ease and capture their essence and personality through the photos - and with a 17-month old, this is not an easy task! I love the way she uses natural light to illuminate our faces and makes the photos look almost like paintings. I would definitely recommend her for any occasion and she'll always be our favorite family photographer!
Finding Sehee and having the opportunity to work with her is hands down one of the highlights and best choices I have made in 2020. I found her via Yelp and Flytographer. After reviewing her work and reading all about the rave reviews from previous clients, I knew that I could trust her to capture the look and feel of the photoshoot that I was looking for.
I reached out to her and she responded immediately. She's incredibly communicative, responsive, professional, and considerate. She asks questions and ensures that she truly understands what you're looking for. what you're needs are for your photoshoot, and brings ideas to the table, which is incredibly helpful if you're shooting in an area or neighborhood that isn't familiar to you. She's also really willing to listen to your ideas and find ways to embrace them and incorporate them into your photo shoot.
Like so many others in 2020, I lost my job which in turn resulted in me losing my housing and caused my family and I to pack up and quickly move across the country in the middle of the pandemic. It had been a while since my partner and I had regular seasonal photoshoots, something I think is important and worth investing in, but with everything that was happening in the middle of the pandemic, it was important to me to create some beautiful and lasting memories in the middle of all the hurt, loss, and pain. Sehee was the right person to help me capture those moments and create some long-lasting stunning shots that I will look at fondly for years to come and remember that there were also some beautiful moments in the middle of the chaos.
Sehee showed up early, ready to work, and took the necessary precautions to shoot us safely and comfortably in the middle of the pandemic. I felt very safe and comfortable working with her. She really took her time and ensured that every moment was captured perfectly and didn't rush the work. She is also communicative on posing, lighting, getting angles, and waiting for foot/bike traffic and making it appear you're alone in the middle of a major city. I communicated to Sehee that I was looking for a golden hour early morning photoshoot in Brooklyn and DUMBO and boy did she deliver. She captured and delivered stunning, golden hour, JJ Abrams photos that captured intimacy and romance like poetry. All of the shots and locations that I was looking to shoot at, she made sure to keep us on track and moving along so we had plenty of time at each location and didn't feel rushed at all.
I got my photos quickly after and I'm obsessed with every single shot. If you're looking for a photographer in the NYC area, definitely reach out to Sehee. She has great customer service, communicates quickly and clearly, and knows how to capture the look and feel of what you're looking for. You won't be disappointed.
