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 :)

Swan Valley Vineyard Engagement in Perth: Yivonne and Boon Wai

We sat there sipping coffees, while the sea breeze wrapped around us in a comforting sigh that spring morning. I remember smelling the salt from the ocean, and watching Yivonne giggle and chatter enthusiastically about her wedding plans for the following year, while Boon Wai watched patiently with a smile. A smile lined with quiet adoration. And I loved that. You know, those subtle idiosyncrasies that make a couple in love so fascinating. Most people don't realize when I sit and observe them... mostly because my mouth, which runs at a million miles per hour, was operating at full speed. But I do. I love watching, learning, and just enjoying being in love's presence. And that is what it feels like being around Yivonne and Boon Wai (also fondly known as Danny :D ) - being in love's presence, and then dipped in a layer of sunshine, tenderness, and laughter. So much laughter :)

So when it came to their engagement session, and Yivonne wanted something warm, full of sun, and in the vineyards, I nearly died and went to photographic heaven. She spoke my language and I was SO excited to document their love in such a gorgeous setting. Here are my favourites from their session :) Yivonne and Boon Wai, God smiled on you both that day, and gave you both the most beautiful light - I hope you like these :) I am so honored and BEYOND thrilled to be there on your wedding day later this year to document the two of you becoming one. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon (and that GORGEOUS bottle of wine - you cheeky things! :D ) and see you soon!! :D

Playing on the vineyard grounds :)

I LOVE how these two laugh :)

And then the gorgeous light starting pouring over us.

I thought this board full of their pictures was soooo cute! :D

And then we had some fun with some of the other play things they brought :D

Yivonne is apparently a good cook :D

Yivonne's 2nd dress here is from Forever New. I LOVE this store, and shop here all the time :D

This was a surprise! The sparkly things they brought!!! :D We had so much fun with these! :D

And by this point, the light was SO amazing, I nearly died.

And this sign was for Boon Wai ;)

These last few frames are my fave... the light was seriously so stunning that afternoon.

And here is Perth at dusk, with the moon and all :) perth, you are pretty! :D

Have a gorgeous thursday everyone!!! :D

I'm hopping on another flight now, so see you soon!! :D
