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 :)

The JSP Facebook Page: Thank You

I'm sitting here on my mustard yellow sofa bed, slumped in an overly comfortable spot, and strangely...not really knowing what to say or write. Perhaps lethargy has finally reared its ugly head, and my brain has finally entered a somewhat comatosed state. All I am thinking right this very moment is: food, bed, a tub of mango yoghurt, some salt and vinegar chips, and a countless number of episodes of Vampire Diaries to get me back on track! :)

Of coure, as life has it, I must run with the wind, and soldier on through the crazy! Stealing an episode of Vampire Diaries in between ;)

For now, I wanted to share with you all something that has meant alot to me - YOU. That's right, each and everyone of you who read, follow, tell your friends, and come back to read this blog of mine and have made our humble little facebook fanpage (I still cringe at the word!! It still holds a little more vanity in between its letter than I am comfortable with.. ) grow from ZERO in february this year, to a crazy almost 9000 today!!! I don't know where all of you come from, but I know it is YOU who make JSP what it is today. Please know that even though I may not be able to always answer each and every one of your messages or emails, I do read all of them and there is not a single one I take for granted. For a girl who secretly needs a tiny morself of assurance every now and again, all of you 'almost 9000' really fill my heart with smiles :)

So, this post is a THANK YOU for putting a little sunshine into my insane peak season for just being there, and coming back, again and again and again :) I want to give away a little something I recently fell in love with... I was given one of these beautiful necklaces (it has my name on it) by a reader/follower whom I've not even met, not long ago, and I was blown away with her incredible generosity, and impeccable taste!! I love cute and vintage/rustic looking items, and I thought it would be so wonderful to pass on some of these wonderful little vintage camera necklaces to you out there!!

So how do you get one?

Easy! You just need to do 3 things :)

(1) Leave a comment in the comment box of this blog post (yes, so to those reading via RSS feed, you need to come back to the ORIGINAL BLOG post to leave the comment - do not leave it under the comments of the notes or your feed) to tell me your name, where you are from, how long you've been following JSP for, and how you heard about JSP!

(2) Post a picture to the 'FAN PHOTOS' section of the JSP facebook page (its in the photo tab, on the left hand column of the page), telling us in 25 words or less why you are a fan of JSP. Be as creative as you like. It can be as simple as text on white, with a creative message..... or you can use pictures.... the sky is the limit. It just has to be uploaded in that section, and it must have 25 words or less why you are a fan of JSP.

(3) Then, tell your friends to 'like' your uploaded photo!

The top 10 photos/pictures with the most 'likes' when this giveaway ends will get one of these cute little vintage camera necklaces!! I'll also pick my favourite, as the 11th winner :) This special 11th winner, will also receive a limited edition of my JSP travel postcards (there's 20 in the set) and you get them in soft copy on DVD too for your desktop/computer wallpaper too :)

So the sooner you enter, the better! As it means you'll have more time to share your uploaded photo around! :)


Giveaway ends: Monday 29th November 2010 (at 11:59pm), and I'll announce the winners later in the week. Make sure you are contactable if you are the winner! :D

Have a wonderful week ahead everyone! I'm off to catch my breath for awhile! Back soon! :)

Avex Lim said...

Wow! Since the time I started following JSP, this is the first time where we could really interact in such an interesting way...I love it!

Hi Jenny, my name is Avex Lim. I am from Malaysia, brought up in Malacca and I am currently pursuing my bachelor degree in UM, Kuala Lumpur. Well, I am an engineering student but I love photography so much. I have been an amateur photographer for more than one and a half year. (does engineering related to photography? weirdo =p)

I couldn't recall when was the first time I got into our blog and started following it! (is this important? lol) But, one thing for sure, I will keep following it for the rest of the days. This is much more important isn't it? =D And I heard about 'Jenny Sun' from my photographer friends, who are also admiring JSP works. We love your style and photos, as well as the way you value your readers =) Keep it up!

p/s: It will be awesome if we could hang out somewhere in the cafe and have some sharing about photography, or perhaps life =)

Hi Jenny, I'm Grace from Malaysia. I'm a Graphic Design student. I love photography. I take whatever photos that inspire me. Photography is something I do as freelance too.

I have come across about JSP from the "Top 10 Female Photographers" on facebook and you were one of the selected photographer there.

I was really amazed with that topic because I didn't realize that there were so many talented female photographers out there with such passion and great skills. This shows that what guys can do girls can do it too. Haha! No offence guys, but we have seen so many male photographers everywhere and this is really a breakthrough for the female photographers. Girl Power!!!

Anyway, I still remembered when I first encountered JSP was back in May this year during my trip to Australia. Beautiful country.

Hi Jenny,
I'm from country NSW. I have been following your blog for a while now, but can't actually remember how I found it? Maybe it was your photoshoot by J*?
I love the colours in your shoots, all that beautiful warm evening light.
I'm only new in the photography industry and am always looking to learn from others who have been around a lot longer than me.
I hope you like my image, its of my 2 boys.
Leanda xoxo

Amanda said...

Hi Jenny!

I'm Amanda from Brisbane & I honestly don't remember how long I've been following your blog for... I think it may have been around the time you did a "just because" shoot for one of my friends (Jo, in 2009 sometime). I guess she must have linked up your blog to her pics & everything has gone from there!

Just want to say how much I love all the photos you post!

yeepee said...

Hi Jenny, YeePee here. First time i saw you at Alvin and Shinny's wedding on 18 July 2009. Beside the weds, I was stunned by one jacket girl with the camera capturing the weds perfect moments, and i discover that it was you Jenny! Since then, i "hunted" you down via Alvin's blog and facebook,^^. I love your shoots, although some may said those photos in your blog were among the best shot of hundreds that you shoot. but who cares? there are clearly among the best! i love your shoots with so much of expression and feelings. you shoots not only peoples, but you shoots emotion, expression and feelings. i love'em so much! Keep the spirit alive!

Hi, Jenny~
Iu Lung here from Malaysia. It's the first time i leave my message at here although I have been follow the blog for almost a year. JSP started to be in my mind(oh ya, also in my bookmark! ha~), after i link your website from my friend's blog. It's a special to look to your photos as they really can inspire me with some creative ideas out. Different way of bringing out the best moment of the bride and bridegroom is always the thing I am searching for and guess what, I found at JSP!
Thanks for creating so much great artwork(photos) that inspired us!

Hi Jenny, Esther Ng here from Malaysia who is currently residing in Brisbane, otherwise known as the Sunshine State. =)

I've been following your blog since early this year and your pictures just continually amazes and inspires me.

I still have a looong way in grasping the technical aspects of shooting and photo editing but I hope to be able to reach where you are one day, in terms of your photo taking skills. =)

Currently trying to upload my "picture" to your fan page but I can't find it on your Jenny Sun Photography and neither do I see anything on the left hand side column in the Photo tab.

Hope to be able to upload it soon! If not, know that you are an inspiration.. you put moments... memories into pictures.

You immortalise memories, memories that will last a lifetime. =)

My name is Valen, a Malaysian who is currently residing in Los Angeles.

I heard JSP from a good friend of mine in Dec 2008, when i was searching for photographer for my own wedding. My husband and I always think we are the luckiest couple on earth, cos we managed to engage JSP to shoot our engagement session, not once, but twice! One in KL and one in LA, in less than 6 months' time!(JSP fans, you will know the reason why i am saying is truly amazing, just like you strike toto for more than once in less than a year! Haha!)

All the best to JSP!!! You are the best because you always breakthrough your current level! I have seen lots of possibilities in your shots! That's why it is always inspiring! Congratulations! We look forward to more of your creative shots in 2011! xoxo
