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 :)

Sandy and Ronnie: Engagement

The sun softly trickled through the willowing leaves, which moved in graceful pendulating fashion as the cool breeze danced its way in between the suspended green foliage. Floating through the air, in warm echoes was the lilting sound of giggles, doting hugs, and gazes laced with sweet spoonfuls of love.

One may throw down the silly card, and say it's impossible to hear hugs and loving gazes, but I believe love fills and permeates all the senses. So much so, that at times, you cannot tell one sense from another. And its beautiful. Perhaps that's why they say love is so magical.

One gorgeous afternoon, where the golden rays lent themselves to us for a brief moment, Sandy and Ronnie let me document their love and I couldn't be more excited and honored to photograph these two. They were sweet, carefree, cute, relaxed, and most importantly - in love, and not afraid to let it show in their down to earth and fun way! :)

Thank you so much for such an awesome time you two! Words cannot express how happy you made me and my camera with your loveliness!! I can't wait to shoot your wedding!! :)

Here are my favourites from their session! (warning: monster post ahead!)

We started with something a little more dressed up to begin with :)

Sandy's laugh is so infectious!! i laugh everytime i see these photos! :D


Then a change of attire and style. I LOVE sandy!! She and I were in conversation before the shoot, and she was telling me she wanted a roman holiday kind of feel to her images. We couldn't get a scooter, but she managed to find this AWESOME vintage bike instead. My clients bring the best stuff to the shoot!! :D I tell you brides, styling (clothes, props, and hair/makeup) in the right way is sooooo important to a shoot! As important as nice light and location. So do talk with me about your shoot! I love styling as much as shooting so lets work together and make your session that much more fabulous!! :D The results are worth it!!

I do, and will always always love close up shots :)

A burst of AMAZING light, in the nice light we already had.

I love the feel of the below photo :)

This is them, in their element. So cute and funny!!

I don't know if you noticed, but Sandy wore the loveliest lace vintage scarf... it added the perfect touch to the style of her shoot! :D

A little detail :)

One of my faves to end with :)

And because I haven't posted a slideshow in a while, check this out below to see a lot more images from this set. It features one of my FAAAAAVOURITE tracks by one of my now favourite artists, Shannon Curtis. Her music is just gorgeous, so have a listen!! :D

Our Wedding Photos

Alot of people have asked, where is the wedding photographer's wedding photos?!?! haha... well, they were actually published quite a while back on this blog. But in the spirit of remembering good times and the like, here they are again!

The below is an excerpt I wrote about the day from the original post, followed by the slideshow of images featuring one of my favourite EVER songs. I hope you enjoy looking back at our wedding as much as we did! :D

The alarm shook and then poured out its cacophony of noise pollution, guaranteed to shovel out anyone from the deepest of sleep. Anyone but myself that is. I had slept at 2 that morning, and the clock had begun its audio display at close to 5. My thoughts at that present were only to grasp whatever left of sleep I could before it faded before my eyes. I think God had other plans though, because despite my rather anti-morning persona, I couldn't stay in a state of slumber any further. The buzzing of activity downstairs, chatter, and laughter had floated its way up to my room, and by then I knew... it was time.

The day was glorious to wake up to though. We had perfect weather. After a stretch of wet Saturdays for almost 2 months, the sun handsomely displayed himself across the blue expanse in an almost royal form, while gently radiating only the most gentle rays of warmth to trim off the rest of the picturesque setting before our eyes. Thank God.

I was nervous though, excited, and at the same time just thrilled that after 8 years of courtship, we were closing the chapter on one part of our life, and opening another. Corny? Yes. True? Even more so. People, events, sounds, tastes, and sights sprinted past our minds so fast that day, I felt that even if the wind had carried us on the tails of a shooting star, we would only have paled in the distance to where everything was. And before we knew it, it hit 7pm and the day was over. We were able to cast off our shoes onto the sand coloured carpet, and just look out the window over looking circular quay as dusk was settling in. Lights began flickering on, and shades of purple, pink, and blue were being stirred in with the black that was trickling itself over the scene before our eyes.

The below photo was probably one of my favourite shots throughout the whole entire day :)

Happy Monday!! :D


Words of Encouragement

This past week, has been one of considerable trials.

At times, it has been tempting to feel discouraged, let down by others, or made to feel like I am less of a photographer. Words to do hurt, and I hope people realize that.

But as words can cut, on the flip side of the coin, words can also have an amazing healing effect too. One of my beautiful clients (who I am YET to meet!) emailed me this morning, and told me she had written the below blog post about her wedding photographer. And in an instant, I was flooded by encouragement, and warmth by her complete trust and abounding confidence in a girl whom she is yet to see and know face to face! It just reminds me that I really and truly have THE BEST clients out there. THE BEST. No flipping joke. I don't know how they find me, or why they choose me over the amazing talents that exist out there in our industry, and honestly I sometimes think I don't deserve people as amazing as yourselves, but I am so thankful for the relationship I am lucky enough to have with them.

God continues to amaze me, all the time :)

Elizabeth, if you are reading this - thank you, thank you, thank you :) you have such a beautiful heart and I am just ALL THE MORE excited about our time together in a few months!!

And to my husband, thank you for reminding me last night that I have an abundance of blessings to be thankful for. In my busyness, and lightning speed of a lifestyle, alot gets choked out and I sometimes forget. Thank you for pointing me back.

much love.



ps: We've had alot of requests for our own wedding photos to be put up here on this blog, so wait for the next post because that's where I'll be putting them up :)

Chris and KC: Engagement

I'm addicted to blogging. I really believe I am. It's becoming a chronic illness to the point where I will hyperventilate in waves of anxiety if I feel like my blog has been left standing naked and unfed for periods of more than like....... a day :P

Seriously, I am up to my neck with work, to do lists, and emails at the moment, and here I am, saying to myself, I HAVE to blog. I HAVE TO BLOG. Like I said. A chronic illness. So in the spirit of cleansing the system and getting things out in the air, here is a quickie of a post from me, just so I can continue the rest of my day in peace and sanity :)

Meet Chris and KC. We had the pleasure of having these two in front of our camera one fine overcast day, and look at the little bits of candy they graced us with! Thank you Chris and KC for the total delight of being able to shoot for you :) We hope you are enjoying the wonderful first few stages of marriage together! Blessings :)

Then a change of attire and scenery! :D mmmmm.... Chris was wonderful in finding this location. She knew I loved my colours! I LOVE it when clients pick their own locations. Seriously, it means you get total control over where the shoot happens, and it gives the best opportunity to let the location you pick reflect who YOU are :)

Look at Chris work it!

Off for now to try and cure this blogging disease I have! :)
