The Estates of Sunnybrook is a decadently grand and elegant event venue located in the heart of midtown Toronto. Set amidst forty acres of lush and bright forestry and enchanting gardens, this magical venue was the ideal setting for Pei and Kelvin’s wedding. The McLean House ( there are three houses located on the grounds that host all of the venue’s events) was carefully chosen by Pei and Kelvin to be the house that would bring to life of their wedding dreams. This truly spectacular venue gloriously gave us the perfect backdrop to capture the most captivating earthy and ethereal photos that expertly showcased our skills as fine art wedding editorial photographers.
Prior to shooting their wedding at the Estates of Sunnybrook, we had the pleasure of accompanying Pei and Kelvin to beautiful San Francisco to shoot their couture pre-wedding photo shoot. The calm and gentle natural beauty of San Francisco made Pei and Kelvin’s couture pre-wedding shoot a smashing success. Working with the two of them on both their couture San Francisco pre-wedding photo shoot and elegant and airy Toronto wedding at the McLean House was an absolute joy for us. Pei and Kelvin are an immensely easy going, charming and hardworking couple who brought endless amounts of enthusiasm and positive energy to both photo shoots.
Pei and Kelvin, we sincerely thank you for choosing us to create for you both a one of a kind couture pre-wedding photo shoot, and incomparable wedding editorial photos. We sincerely wish you two a lifetime filled with endless love and happiness.
As high art wedding editorial photographers staging and executing photos like this, are both some of our most challenging and rewarding to undertake. Our goal was to create a shot that was jointly natural and airy with a cutting edge high art editorial twist! Our bride and groom were absolutely flawless in posing. The result was an ingenious masterpiece shot.
We had a truly splendid time working with our wedding party! We decided to utilize charming and whimsical props in McLean House’s library to give this shot both a playful and fashion editorial feel.
We truly love setting up and capturing shots like this one featuring Kelvin and his groomsmen, To perfectly capture this intricate and precisely timed shot, we utilized some of the bright and cheery natural light pouring in from the window, and a shorter camera lens to fully capture the depth of the playing cards being thrown into the air. The exuberance and flawless poses that Kelvin and his groomsmen demonstrated were the finishing touches that made this shot fun and dynamic.
As soon as we saw this grand spiral staircase in McLean House, we knew that we had to use it in a shot! This heavenly shot of Pei beautifully shows off her extravagant and sensational cream coloured lace and tulle Vera Wang wedding gown as she gracefully stands on the grand spiral staircase. The soft natural daylight we yet again used, added the perfect light and airy vibes to this dreamy shot.
The garden made for the most enchanting ceremony space. Pei and Kelvin perfectly kept to their elegant and airy wedding theme by decorating their ceremony space with crisp white chiffon ribbons delicately adorning the guests chairs, cream and white floral arangements and a lush and bright altar combined with greenery and floral accents.
