"Joe and Karen met in their youth, and were married when Joe was still a police officer. Due to his meager salary, the two decided against a wedding ceremony and did not take any wedding photos. To make up for the lost opportunity, the couple hired a well known British photographer to helm a very special photo shoot. Appreciative of Hong Kong's historic culture, Joe and Karen wanted to capture it along with their romantic memories. "Hong Kong is where we were born and raised. The old districts' antiques and cultures contain our collective memories. They are full of sentiments and meanings. We feel that a long-lasting and harmonious marriage is like the act of observing these historic treasures. The longer you look at them, the more precious and delightful they become."
