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 :)

Just Because: Trish and Joel

"I carry your heart" by E. E. Cummings.
Probably my favourite poem in the world.

Meet Trish + Joel.
Thank you for your beautiful faces that gorgeous afternoon, across a random patch of backyard in the hood we both grew up :)

Vincy and Jose: Wedding

For those that don't know yet, Vincy is a resident photographer and PA at Jenny Sun Photography, and the wonderful news is that she is now hitched to her man, Jose! :D I had the pleasure (and scary task!!) of shooting their wedding day portraits on their special day! Unfortunately, it POURED like it was going to be the end of the world (Im not kidding!! It rained ALLLLL DAY)... so their portrait session took place the following day. Thankfully, although a little cloudy, it was dry enough to shoot, and the sun peeped out just long enough for us to take some photos for the newly minted Mr and Mrs!

And, for those wondering, or saw on facebook, there is a story behind the dress and makeup. Because the portraits were pushed to the day after, we were down a makeup artist, so.... erm... I ended up doing vincy's makeup. I don't profess to be a professional...not at all!! I just didn't want to see the bride go makeup-less for her wedding photos :)

And the dress... hahaha..... there is an epic story behind this... while I won't go into the nitty gritty details, let's just say the old dress wasn't quite right... so what eventually happened was that I got the task to design a new dress for vincy - which ended up being so much fun! I think after seeing soooooo many gowns at so many shoots over the last few years, I had an idea of a dress that would suit perfectly for her height, build, shape, and the place she wanted to take photos...the mood was to be soft, romantic, and classic...and you'll what was created in the photos below. Thank you to Pretty In White's designer, Steph for creating what was in my head - your tips and advice was perfect and made the dress all the more better :) Then I borrowed Vincy my own veil (that I wore on my wedding day), and my hairpiece (from the FABULOUS Pinmeup Couture ) for that extra touch of 'glam' I thought would look lovely on our Vincy! :D

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE ADORE ADORE, tulle material in dresses - it really has to be one of the most romantic and soft looking fabrics.... and I've ALWAYS thought that one shouldered dresses were very pretty.... :)

Although shot in Sydney, I really felt at points during the session, we were shooting in some European corner :)

The sun came out for about 30 seconds.... Just enough for the flare shots vincy wanted hehe :) Sorry peeps! But I will never ever ever promise flare shots for any session... its so weather dependent... so if the skies are kind that day, you know I'll definitely shoot it, but if not, I hope you trust me enough to make some pretty piccies regardless? :) xox

Hope all of you are having a great week so far!! We have to get back to the crazy busy at JSP now! :) Back soon!

Love Story Session: Ivy and John

Love story sessions at JSP are a little different... Instead of going to beautiful locations, with spectacular views, or amazing props and decor, these sessions capture couples just as they are.... that is, what they love doing, things that are important to them, and just documenting their essence in their day to day lives. It could be in their home, or following them on a date, to washing dishes or fixing car together, doing laundry together, enjoying coffee, listening to music, cooking, or just shooting them doing whatever they love most. The heart of these sessions are really to show who the couple are in their daily lives so that they can look back at the images and say, this is really us to the core.

I had the pleasure of documenting Ivy and John's love story awhile back and it still brings a smile to my face everytime I see these images, because I know it really is THEM. There is nothing fancy or artsy fartsy about these images, but what I adore seeing is just Ivy and John being who they are in their home, doing what they love in pure simplicity. Thank you for inviting me into your home and your lives for just one afternoon, Ivy and John. It really was an honor... so relaxing that it almost felt like I was not working :)

I loved their house - cosy and homely, but at the same time modern and full of beautiful natural light!! :D

Inclusive of a cool and very big vege garden out the back! :D

Pretty kitchen with lovely window light :)
