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 :)

Wedding: Jon and Hwee Yen


I was in Kuala Lumpur city over the weekend shooting a wedding. As with alot of weddings in this corner of the world, there were alot of cultural aspects to the day like the tea ceremony, and the door games to win the bride. And I am going to profess - it is rare for me to be putting up wedding photos on the blog, so soon after the wedding has happened, but I was asked to put together a same day edit slideshow (ie. images shot on the wedding day, and then shown on the same night to the guests) for the wedding over the weekend, and after looking at the images, I felt I had to share. I hope you don't mind Hwee Yen and Jon. I was just so encouraged by what I witnessed between you and your families, that it left a rather deep impression within me.

After shooting so many weddings, I can say that today, weddings are all about how 'beautiful' it will look... they are all focused on how much decor can be sprinkled throughout the day...or how many details will furbish the big event. And as a girl, I have to admit, I do love those things very much, but at the end of it all, they mean absolutely nothing if the heart of the wedding is void.

So, when I walked into Saturday's wedding, and what met my camera was a multitude of tears, big hugs, even bigger smiles, and a very palpable love - it was refreshing. So very very refreshing. Like solace or a breath of fresh air. The emotion and the closeness between the between the bride + groom and their family and friends was so real, you couldn't help but sigh a little and maybe even swallow a forming lump in the throat. It is the moments that really get me at weddings.... without them, a wedding is so empty. My pictures would speak nothing. I don't know about other photographers, but for me, these genuine instances and snippets are like food for the soul.

So thank you for letting me into your lives for that day Jon and Hwee Yen and allowing me to tell your story. I don't think I did your wedding any justice with my blog post in words... but I am hoping the images will do better than my limp verbal account.

ps: A huge shoutout to the bride's family - thank you thank you thank you sooooo very very very much for making sure I had as much natural light and pretty light as possible to work with all throughout the day and night. It made all the difference. I hope you know that :)

I really enjoyed watching the slide show. I don't know who the couple are, but they are so happy and everyone is so full of joy and love. You have captured all this in the photos Jenny. What a beautiful bride and such wonderful colors.

I am a huge fan of all candid shots. So often wedding photography is so posed and artsy, and that stuff is nice, I like it too, but like you say, the emotion of the day is the real draw and you've hit that wonderfully.

Gary said...

Your pictures are unreal. Wow, you seriously are such a great wedding photographer. Do you do shoots and weddings in Sydney alone, or would you be willing to come out to Alice Springs? I know, it's pretty ghetto out here, but we have weddings nonetheless!
