Wallace + Yun Yun | British Columbia

Wallace and Yun Yun chose beautiful Victoria, British Columbia for their wedding. My brother Alex, who was the videographer for the wedding, and I had met Wallace and Yun Yun through Preeya and Pramod whose wedding I photographed in June.

Hatley Castle was the setting that Wallace and Yun Yun selected to celebrate their wedding. Known for its part of the X-Men movie, Hatley Castle is currently a university and was formerly a naval military academy. It was the perfect medieval setting. Small and with such a magical sense of another time it gave me some really great backgrounds to use with this charming couple.

Even though we were on a tight wedding-day schedule, we had a chance to shoot some portraits in Victoria’s Chinatown. It’s the oldest Chinatown in Canada and very different looking than San Francisco’s Chinatown–because it doesn’t dress up for visitors. It has what’s said to be the narrowest street on earth, Fan Alley, really just wide enough for one person to get through.

Enjoy the photos. And I am back to editing. Only twelve weddings to go… What a crazy year!

    This was the best wedding photo documentaries I have ever seen. Every photo express the feeling on how couples share their happiness to us after getting married.

    Lovely photos and lovely couples. You did a great job Joseph. You’re such a professional photographer.

  • HI there

    I literally just stumbled across your website and W-O-W what great photographs!!!

    As a photographer I think it’s always nice to give a bit of nice feedback, so rather than keeping the thoughts to myself, I thought I would drop you a line to say, keep up the good work.

    Awesome shots my friend.

    Take care

    Beautiful special effects that create a timeless photo album feel. Thanks for the inspiration (and I’m jealous of the fiat 500 wedding gift – I wish I’d gotten one for my wedding!)

    Amazing photography! Wish we could have someone like you taking pictures at the wedding we hold in our hotel. I absolutely love the fact that everyone seems so natural – usually people pose when their pictures are taken, especially at weddings and you can spot that in pictures. I do not know how you did it but you captured every inch of emotion! >:D<

  • magiafoto - December 11, 2011 - 4:25 am

    Amazing photos! I like the one with the window reflection.

  • Architectural Visualisation - November 8, 2012 - 12:02 am

    Simply stunning

    What I like most about this photos, besides the fact that it is perfectly photographed, are the humors injected in every scene. The picture taken of the couple in an old closed building (was it a garage?) is simply amazing and unpredictable. Generally, I enjoyed all the photos. They are an inspiration.
