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 :)

Jenny + Dennis: Beach Engagement

Of late, I've been craving simplicity. Sometimes life can throw you in somewhat of a whirlpool, and you are left spinning in frenzied confusion, because there is too much clutter, or because there is too little foundation to cling to for anchorage. While seen in life at times for myself , this has also included the photos I create. Our industry has the tendency to push for the innovative, the crazy, the eccentric, and the out-of-the-box in order to be recognized and be different... all in the name of 'NEW'. And sometimes, this works. Sometimes it magically pieces together and surfaces in the form of incredibly imagery. Most other times though, to my eyes, it feels like image clutter, and I forget what makes a photo beautiful.

So it was refreshing recently to shoot, for the sake of just documenting love as it is. Love in purity. Love in simplicity. Stripped down and bare, with no props, no fancy lighting, nothing but the clasping of hands, an embrace, just-because giggles, and quiet adoration. This may not win me many fans, but at the end of the day, it isn't really about that is it? It is about who is in front of your frame, and making them look as beautiful as they can be, and making them feel/look/be 100% them :)

Remember Jenny and Dennis' wedding? :) This was their engagement session, one unassuming but beautiful morning. We saw the sun rise, along one of the most gorgeous coastlines in a city I am so proud to call home :) Sydney, you are so exquisite, when you want to be :)

Yummy yummy light :)

I LIVE for light like this :)

Yes, Sydney, you are truly beautiful :)

An Autumn Bridal Session: Meg + Emma

One cool afternoon in my favourite season of the year, Autumn, my friends and I packed our things, loaded the boot, and let rubber meet cement to embark on a fun conceptual project we had been planning the prior few weeks.

There is just something magical about Autumn. The whole world starts to change colour, and the metamorphosis brings about the most gorgeous warmth to the skin of mother nature. Deep yellows, fiery reds, cinnamon browns, and sun-kissed oranges fill the kaleidescope that is before our eyes. Maybe it is because I was born in this season, or maybe it is the delicate balance of cool breezes in a still lukewarm air, but I just adore Autumn in all its subtle magnificence.

So, when the opportunity came to partner up again with the fabulousness of bridal couture designers Pretty in White to shoot something special in this season, I was thrilled!! And what made it better, was that my beautiful friends Tracy and Paul of Eclektic were on the team to help turn this shoot into a reality :)

Here are my favourites from the afternoon :)

Starting off with the film set:

Models: Meg and Emma
Hair/Makeup: Roxy2Foxy
Flowers: Cannisia Florist
Dresses: Pretty In White
Props: Mine :)
Styling: Myself + Tracy :)
Hair accessories: Pin Me Up Couture

I LOVE FILM!!! :D Just the fact that you can shoot as is, and NOT edit a single frame is amazing. I love this medium to bits :) All photos below are not edited. Only the frame was added in photoshop.

Meet Meg :)

Meet Emma :)

And here is the DIGITAL set :)

We started off with some of the more ethereal pieces in Pretty In White's Celestial collection :)

And then moved to some bridal pieces later in the day :)

I love the following frames :)

The below shot was set up by Tracy :) Thank you for taking my props and making them look pretty Tracy!! :D
