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 :)

New York Engagement Photos: Maura and Bryan Pre-Wedding

I have been so excited to share this set for days! But if you've been following my facebook page (which I still encourage you to visit! :D), you'll know that my macbook pro has been broken on this long road trip of ours... which has sadly meant that all editing and blogging halted. Even now, I can't work at the pace that I used to, but the good news is that we've been snapping a tonne of photos along our journey and can't wait to share them with you whenever we can - albeit with a laptop short :P

Anyhow, meet Maura and Bryan! Two amazingly lovely new yorkers who are soon to be married this May! On a chilly wintry late February afternoon, we wandered the cobblestone streets of New York and explored its charming older facades to document Maura and Bryan's love! :D

These two are just incredible - they came prepared with a whole google map route of all their favourite hangout places and I kept ooh-ing and ahh-ing at each new turn. What met my eyes were vintage streets, old books, a quintessential American diner, and AMAZING light. We completely lucked out - it was snowing, raining, and grey in New York City the entire week before this shoot, and come Maura and Bryan's day - the sun decided to show off a little and it was just glorious :D

Thank you SO much Maura and Bryan for being so fabulous! You spoke my heart in all the elements and choices for your session making it just perfect and I had the best time with the two of you in front of my lens :D I hope these images make you smile as you grow old together and remember why you love each other so much :D



We started off at the park they sit and read at together :)

Maura and Bryan love their books so it felt so fitting to have some pretty books in this session! :D

The light was GORGEOUS that day. No, really.

And if you didn't believe me the first time, I took a closeup to show you again! :D

I don't know why, but I love this shot of Maura :D

At the diner they love to eat at :D

I LOVE LOVE polaroid cameras! This was was uber cool. The pictures come out amazing!

Look! :D

Thank you SO much to the wonderful Amanda from RUFFLED, who sent me this beautiful couple my way (they won the NYC engagement competition that was held on her blog)!! :D :D (brides, you HAVE to visit her blog - it is choc FULL of amazing ideas for your wedding!! :D)

Have a beautiful weekend everyone! I'm working hard to get back online and resume things as best as I can. If I am a little slow for awhile, please forgive me! More pictures are coming!

Travel Destination: New York, USA - Day 1

Its quiet. I can only hear the heater in my room bang sporadically every now and again to fill the chilly winter air. My eyes are painfully heavy, as try to pen down these thoughts and rest my back against the white wall of the apartment we are staying in. Its a small, humble abode, and the stairs creak in aching sighs as you tread up and down....but I like it. It feels New York. I'm not even sure if I understand what that means yet, but something about it exudes that element that makes New York, New York.

When we landed this morning, we saw little droplets of frost slowly blanket the ground. Apparently this was going to be the only day in the week where we'd see snow, so after offloading our luggage and grabbing the most delightfully fresh club sandwich I've ever had, we set our feet to work and began to explore the city. We didn't get far because the snow started to become fierce, but what we managed to catch before the light disappeared that day made me happy :) And if this would be the last we'd see of this magical white sheet across the city, I'd be happy.... I got to play in the snow, and let some of it land on my tongue, we met a stranger at Central Park who was taking photos for his book about the place, and we ended the day eating some amazing french food and catching up with an old friend. Life is good :)

Here are my favourite shots from today! I'm off to bed now to cure this jetlag of mine. I've made it to 2am local time and hope to wake up at a normal hour tomorrow! :)

The most amazing club sandwich I've ever had... everything was so fresh!! :D If only I can remember the name of that restaurant! *will update when I find out!*

Many different feet...

Ju making snowballs to attempt to throw at me! hah!

One view of many, of central park... I hope to explore more of it this week :)

A little friend we found along the way! :)

Around and about Columbus Circle, and Warners Time Center :)

See you next post!

The Fan Page: Jenny Sun Photography

I've delayed, I've deliberated, I've procrastinated, I've waited... and then waited some more. Mainly because the idea of it made me feel TOTALLY silly....

But it's finally up! And real!

A facebook fanpage for yours truly!

I know... I know!! it sounds so totally vain! :( All of you who read my blog know I shy from all things about the ego, vanity, and the like, but it really was about time. The increasing number of friend requests every day, the crazy amount of messages via facebook, and more importantly, the scary reduction in privacy on facebook has led me to create this new little spot on the web! :)

Besides, I think this will be a really fun and different way to connect with all of you! I plan to keep the place exciting with regular updates, announcements, and special/exclusive giveaways that are just through this page so do join! I'd feel really sad if I logged in tomorrow and found I only had 2 fans! :P

Much love for making JSP what it is today! It is all of YOU who make it happen!

Hunter Valley Engagement: Kim and Alison

There is just something soulfully, and inherently romantic about wine countries and vineyards - maybe it is the dry sun-kissed air that floats in a balmy-like dance, or the smell of ripe grapes bursting full of the summer juice, or the golden aura of light that so often blankets the entire area, or perhaps it is because the sight of rolling green hills laced with luscious green and purple grapes that conjures up light happy memories of when my husband and I used to visit the area that make this type of place so special. Whatever it is, I love it. To bits.

So you can imagine my delight when Ali and Kim came to me, telling me they got engaged in the hunter valley (Sydney's famous wine country and vineyard region) and loved the idea of having photos there! I always tell people that if I could shoot in the country, or in vineyards, or any other rustic romantic kind of place with things like cottages, old pretty gardens, I'd be in photography heaven! I could shoot in places like that every single day of my life and it would be perfect :)

Anyhow, I sadly couldn't shoot their wedding day, but I felt just as honored to document their love for their e-session. Thank you Kim and Ali for such a lovely privilege and for making the afternoon so perfect - your larger-than-life final set just proved how amazing the session was! You two are going to have an amazing wedding! Much love for a blessed marriage ahead! Wish I could be there, but know I'll be thinking of you on the other side of the world :)

Here are my favourites from their shoot (watch out, its a big post!)

I love when these two laugh - it makes me happy :)

I love it when girls have enough make up on! Look how pweeety Alison's eyes are! :D I think there is a huge fear that brides think they look too dark, but it looks just as bad when its on too light! The rule of thumb is, if you feel its a little darker than what you are used to - its good :) So girls, listen to your makeup artists!! :)

Awesome hot shoes - ALWAYS a plus on my shoots! :D

A fave!

The light was just AMAZING that day... loved being able to grab the below frames at the end of our session. The location was a total accidental find - but happy accidents are always the best! :D

You cant beat light that looks as perfect as this. Faves! :D

And here is their slideshow with a TONNE of extra photos! :D

See you next post everyone! :D


ps: if you are wondering why the lack of updates, we're gearing up heavily for our huge trip to the United States! New York being the first stop!
