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 :)

Joe and Vivian: Engagement

This set was supposed to go up a LOOOOOONG time ago, but October was a nasty kind of month and as a result, alot of my planned blog posts had to be put on hold. Anyhow, I'm back in November with a vengeance, and in full spirits! So I can't wait to share with you the other half ( or should i say 3/4 hehe!) of Joe and Vivian's engagement session with me.

These two are incredible. I always talk about couples that just embody everything that I hope for in a client - fun, vivacious, creative, and trust me openly - these two are seriously no exception. We had never met before their engagement session, nor had a single phone conversation, only having communicated through the written word via email (talk about trust!) - but I knew from the messages I received from them that I would not have a thing to worry about because when emails are filled with smiley-faced emoticons, and exclamation marks, and overflowing creative ideas, I know that they speak my kind of language. A language of nodding excitement, of enthusiasm, and of joy.

So when the day rolled into view, in the context of rolling green hills, summery fields, and a cheeky sun that was playing a constant game of hide and seek, joe and vivian stepped in front of the camera and showed me each delightful facade of their love. Some part shy, some part cheeky, but always speaking the same language spoken through email months before - a love language of nodding excitement, of enthusiasm, and of joy.

Here are some gems they gave me :) I guess you can't expect anything less from a couple who is made up of one part photographer (Joe) and one part makeup artist (Viv) ! :D Thank you SO much for an incredible afternoon Joe and Viv! Your impeccable style and choice for props, attire and the like were perfect, and you ushered in the new wedding season down under for me with the biggest bang and I can't wait for your big day really soon!!

There were so many gorgeous wildflowers growing we couldn't help ourselves!

Joe, being a photographer, brought along the most FABULOUS vintage polaroid camera for the shoot!! i LOOOOOOOOVE old cameras, toy cameras, you name it. And did I mention that i love grooms wearing quirky funky socks?? Who needs black socks these days when you can go all out creative with something out of the box! :D

Viv was trying to use the flowers as a pair of chopsticks. just kidding!! hehe... I can't remember what they were laughing at (probably me!) but i love moments like this :)

Vivian, everyone is thinking it, so I'm just going to say it - you are truly beautiful. It radiates :)

The sun stepped out for like 2 minutes for us to get the following 2 shots :)

And then a quick change of clothes and scenery!

The light started to get pretty amazing around this point, and stayed long enough for us to play with the rest of the afternoon :D

And these last few frames are some of my favourite.

And for a TONNE of more photos from their session, check out their slideshow here (and a new fave song I found recently!!! ) :

Have a beautiful week ahead everyone!!
