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!
