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 City - Film Shots

I had this really pretty wedding, all lined up to be blogged today, and then I realized I had left the images in my other office. Big DOHHHH! haha :) And since I am STILL on the road in between shoots, it will have to wait until I get back into JSP headquarters more permanently next week.

In the meantime, I hope it's ok to share some shots of New York City I shot on film :) If you've been following my blog, you'll know about my love affair for film :) I love how it looks so creamy, organic, and nostalgic.... and I especially love how good photos look straight out of camera on film. It never ceases to surprise me whenever I go and pick up each roll from the lab!! You are all probably wondering, how many more posts do we have to see of New York before we see photos from all the other cities we set out feet in - to be honest, Im not sure! New York was the city we spent the most time in, and I love it, so I hope you bear with me and all these posts in between the weddings and engagement sessions I'm blogging :D

Enjoy my favourite film snaps from our time in New York City. Everything is straight off the film (ie. no editing) except the black and white conversions :)

To start with, here are some shots of the New York apartment buildings done on my lomo camera! The 4th one in the bottom right hand corner was a total accident. I forgot to wind the film and accidentally shot another frame on top of the previous one - hence the trippy ghostly merge in the pic! :p

Lomo shots of central park on the only day we had sun in NYC.

Brooklyn bridge on a gloomy day. The spot we shot this, Empire of the Sun was actually shooting a video clip!!

Dusk was really pretty in NYC.

This photo completely represents how this city feels to the core.

New york just wouldn't be new york without all their awesome yellow cabs huh? :D

Or the masses of people.

More central park snaps. I swear this park was my favourite place in the whole city.

Amidst all the grey, I spotted some color! :)

This city, really is as Alicia Keys' anthem sings - Concrete Jungle.....

And who can forget that special wall dedicated to the 911 tragedy. Painted by the kids.

And lastly the snow. I love how you can spot all the little people. How many can you find? :D

Hope everyone's week has been going well so far!! :D

See you all next post!! :D

Kevin and Valen: Just Because Session in Los Angeles, Santa Monica

It is always a nice surprise when a past clients drops you an email to say they would love you to shoot another session for them, even after they have gotten married. For Kevin and Valen, I got their message all the way from their new home in Los Angeles, and I couldn't have been happier! If you remember, we shot their pre-wedding session last year, and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had the pleasure of being a part of.

As a photographer, I am not allowed to have favourites by any means, but if I were allowed to break that rule it would be for this pair :) Words cannot describe how much I love these two! As a couple, they are madly in love, but as people they are two of the kindest, sweetest people I have had the honor of crossing paths with. Not only do I have the most insane amount of fun whenever I am with Kevin and Valen, but when Ju and I were in Los Angeles they took us out, made sure we enjoyed ourselves, and looked after us SO well. I couldn't believe that out of all the cities we had visited in the USA, they were making Los Angeles one of the most memorable. THANK YOU so much Kevin and Valen... not just for this amazing 'just because' session, but for sharing your lives with us. All those nights of Korean BBQ, Yoghurtland, overly large mexican food, and shopping galore, amongst all the laughter will remain in my heart forever!!! I've walked away not with clients in my hand, but friends, and for that, I'm so grateful :)

Uber uber uber amounts of love!!


ps: Oh, to everyone else, in case you are wondering - here are some of my favourites from their session in Los Angeles and surroundings :D

Hair/Makeup: By the FABULOUS Angeline of All Made Up (which is run by the ever popular Vivian Tran who also does the make up for alot of Jasmine Star's clients! :D) - Thank you Angeline for making Valen look gorgeous that day!! :D

Attire: Valen sourced all her cool clothes and accessories from some of my fave brands EVER - Forever 21, H&M, and Urban Outfitters :D

We started off by getting the country into our system, and visited a really pretty ranch!

I always believe you can tell how in love a couple is, no matter how young or old, by how they laugh together. I still stand by this belief to this day :)

These two have a knack for sitting and looking cute on farm fences ;)

There were some gorgeous fields of flowers we passed by that day!

While we were waiting for Kevin at one point, we found this AMAZING field of yellow flowers and shot Valen in it :D

Then it was off to get some beach shots at Malibu and Santa Monica! :D The light in Los Angeles is AMAZING, coupled with the most beautiful blue skies I have ever seen in my life.

I know I shouldn't be posting shots that look so similar, but I couldn't help myself with these two shots... i love the subtleties in both! :D And who can pass up amazing light?? :D

We were SUPPOSED to make it to the pier, but we found SO many spots where the light just hit perfectly... including this parking lot.

And then finishing up on the beach, where the sunset and light was incredible. We get really pretty light in Sydney, but LA trumps us in that department through and through... You'll see what I mean soon :)

The sunset was divine. DIVINE.

This is the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen. EVER. I have left it straight out of camera, just so you can appreciate how gorgeous it was the day I saw it :D

Happy thursday!!
