A big hi and hello to all of you out there! Thank you for stopping by Jenny Sun Photography's blog! This is my brand new blog space! So please make yourself at home, and have a good browse around. There is plenty more to come so check back often :) Just in case any of you are wondering who on earth I am, my name is Jenny Sun. I own a photography company that spans across Australia and Malaysia, particularly in the Sydney and Kuala Lumpur regions respectively. Though I'm not restricted to those areas! :) I love photographing just about anything under the sun, but my particular passion is for weddings and portraits - I seriously LOVE people, their stories, the beautiful relationships formed, and the tales that are told when that shutter goes off!

This blog is my personal and visual journey along this path of photography. Please hop on board the ride, comment along the way (I shamelessly love comments!), and lets see where the wind takes us :)

Kevin and Valen: Engagement


These two have seriously left a footprint in my heart. I think from the moment her exuberance in peals of laughter ushered into my door, and the doting way his eyes would linger in happiness at her and hold her hand protectively like he was holding a sacred treasure, I knew. I just knew they were perfect. There is just something magical and solid about a first true love. It hits you like a lightning force, and then settles like the roots of a very old tree, they stem, intertwine, and delve deep under. Deep deep under. It is almost impossible to unearth no matter what the storms, the trials and tribulations, distances, or adversities it weathers.

Even after years past their first brief encounter with each other in high school, when fate had toyed with them, letting them pass each other by year after year, something about her face had imprinted itself in his mind. Something memorable. Something enduring. So much so that when life would have it, and the doors opened once more for these two, Kevin without hesitation put himself on a plane and flew from across the other side of the world, across continents to let her know he was hers. This time and always. In his words, Kevin said from the moment he held her hand, he knew she was IT. The one. And considers himself the luckiest guy in the world to be able to marry this girl and spend the rest of his life with her.

There is something magical about a first true love. It hits you, stays, and then flourishes like an indelible force.

Kevin and Valen, thank you SO much for letting me document your love! You are everything I could hope for in a client - fun, energetic, vivacious, creative, complete trust in me, and gorgeous inside and out! You both have beautiful souls and I can't wait to do this all over again with you when I hit LA!! Have a gorgeous wedding ahead - I'm so sorry I can't shoot it, but I promise when we hang together next year it will make up for it!! :D

Here are my favourites from their session:

(ps: shoutout has to go to the awesome awesome team from Pretty In White, who provided the gown, and hairpieces - they all went perfectly!!)














Here marks the start of day 2 of shooting - since the first day rained out in the middle!








This, I swear, has to be one of my favourite portraits of a bride of mine :) Its totally candid, raw, and unabashedly joyful. None of that arty fartyness hung over in it. Its true beauty in the form of happiness.










Since we had an INCREDIBLY long veil (say, 6m??), I couldn't help myself but do some dramatic veil shots, since the weather was nice and dry for it! :D














There's that exuberant laugh from Valen again!




I love it when my couples laugh like this :) It makes my day - so boys and girls, don't hold back on your laughter!! It's so beautiful!


The day ended with some pretty light! :D








And because we haven't had a slideshow on the blog for awhile, here is their slideshow to a song I just absolutely adore by an artist who has become penned as one of my enduring favourites :) For smooth viewing on slower connections, please press PLAY, then when the progress bar loads, press PAUSE. Once the bar is fully loaded, press play for a better visual experience! :D




Much love!! xx
