Hello, I’m Joe Ng and I am the photographer behind Affinity Wedding Photography. I have been working as a full-time photojournalist since 2010. My passion for photography started more than 20 years ago. It's something I've always loved doing and am so happy that I've been able to turn it into a career.
Over the years, I have been working as a photojournalist and developing my ‘style’ on how to tell a story. I photograph each wedding day in a reportage/documentary style, which means that I'm not focused on directing the day but on capturing it in the best way possible as it unfolds. I believe that every wedding is a unique story. I focus on capturing the special moments as they occur in order to translate the emotions, reactions, and your "story" into beautiful images.
Of course, a portion of the day will be spent on formal family photographs and portraits of the bride and groom. However, it is up to the couple on how much formal photography time is needed.
I am based in Burnaby which puts me in a great position to photograph all over Metro Vancouver (Highway 1 is just a few steps away). I love travelling to different venues and various parts of the world.
I've often been asked about how I find these special moments. My answer is simple, I don’t see them with just my eyes. I try to understand what makes each couple special and capture their connection on camera.
