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 :)

Inspiration Board: Forest Dreams

Hello everyone! Hope your friday has started off sunny and lovely! :) We are back today with a tiny serving of a blog post, in the form of another spoon of styling!

My awesome sister, Jillian, has come up with another inspiration board for you to have a look at and hopefully it will help in how you visualize for your wedding :)

Like I mentioned before in the previous Inspiration Board post, Inspiration boards really help to tie in all the pretty little details and visual aspects of their big day together in a beautiful cohesive theme, so that at the end of it all, you get a gorgeous wedding, and everything photographs wonderfully because it has all been planned and laid out neatly according to a colour palette and visual theme. No more random style choices spilling across your wedding day and just getting 'so-so' photos :)

As a photographer, I find that brides who have done their homework and made inspiration boards, and ensured that all their purchases, choices, and designs for their wedding day always fit and tie back into their theme/inspiration board, always get the prettiest (and I mean PRETTIEST!!) photos at the end of the day. And who doesn't want that? :) And don't limit yourself to one or even 2 colours! We find that colour palettes of about 3-4 work wonders in how the details of your wedding theme come up in your photos! :D

Today, we are experimenting with the berry colours of the rainbow! Inspired by forest fruits, woody elements, and the romantic flavours of red in all its gorgeous hues, here is today's board! Look how even things like your linens, and food colour makes a difference! :D

(You can click on the board above to see a larger version :D)

And just like we mentioned last time:

(1) a well executed theme will be carried ALL THROUGHOUT the wedding (that means, your place cards, your invitations, your menu design, your flowers, your cake design, your table linen/cloth colours!!, your napkin and plate colours!!, your seating plan design, your favours and favour tags/boxes, your signage, your dress STYLE, your shoe colour!, and so much more! The more we see your theme in your wedding, the better it will show in your photos :) )

(2) Style boards work JUST AS WELL for your engagement/pre-wedding shoots!! :D

To end this week, I want to share with you a song I really love! I love how anthem-like, passionate, and powerful the words are, as well as the melody! Enjoy! :D

Jenny, I am in the processes of getting a new website. I want it to be a reflection of my personality but it's hard to figure out how to represent me with some patterns and color choices. How could this process benefit the design of a website.....? Or would it. What do you think of a "inspiration layout of things I like.....dresses, berries, etc. and each one might take you to a link (navigate through the website.) I am thinking of using Showit.
