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 :)

Travel Destination: Munich, Germany


It was getting to me. The busyness, that is. Every now and again it does, and believe me, it takes a fair and generous portion of crazy preceding the 'I-want-to-tear-my-hair-out' stage. So before the sinister enemy gets to me, I usually do one of four things to stay on top of the game. I sing. I eat. I facebook. I watch re-runs of one of my favourite TV shows (The Vampire Diaries has been the latest target). This time however, busyness was rearing it's ugly head in quite an unsightly fashion and nothing seemed to be working, so I decided to run. Like, pack-my-bags-and-get-out-of-here kind of run. For real.

Okay, before you get a complete heart attack and think I have entirely gone mad and deserted my work - just breathe :) I decided to just take a short break and getaway, joining my husband in Germany and Austria to soak in the chilly winter air, and regain a little bit of my head back in the process :)

And it was wonderful.

It may have been wintry, with the breeze laced with frost, but the sights were magical, and it was good to be out and about, and away. Even if life back at home had just paused momentarily. It was good. Good to be with my husband, walking the streets of Munich hand in hand with our cold-tipped fingers clasped together. Good for my eyes to be refreshed with different sights to inspire. Good to breathe. And good to just be. In those moments as the first snow of Germany floated in and around my face, and I heard the musicians in their thick winter coats playing classical music under those german arches, I was happy and my heart was full.

Here are some things that peaked my eye's interest the day we spent in Munich.






Yes, it was THAT cold.


And raining.










I LOVED the pretzels in Munich/Germany. I don't know why, but they taste better here! :D


And this was a delight - vanilla ice cream, with hot raspberries, and whipped cream. Mmmmm






Germany and their sausages.




Oh and EVERYWHERE screamed Christmas. I really felt it. The shop windows were beautiful and the Christmas markets sold the most beautiful things!
















The sad thing about travelling in twos, is that its hard to get photos together. Most of them are on my husband's camera because the G11 has this awesome flipscreen that makes self portraits so much easier :D Anyway, this is us mucking around with my big camera :P




Munich is pretty at night too. I wish we had stayed out longer to capture more of the Christmas lights, but it was too cold.


Happy thursday everyone! I'll have photos from Salzburg, Austria next (the land of The Sound of Music!)
