The stunning wedding pictures were taken by Jenny Sun, an amazingly talented photographer known for her simple yet expressive style. As the daughter of an avid travel photographer and a professional in the design industry, creative images have been an integral part of her life for as long as she can remember.

Jenny first began her foray into the field in 2000, where she dabbled in black-and-white film, touching myriad subjects – still lifes, landscapes, architecture – before being lured (charmed, one might say) by weddings and the people who attend them.

“There is just something magically arresting about catching people, their expressions, their emotions, within the frame. I love the buzz of being there to seize those moments that they will remember and want to keep for the rest of their lives. My philosophy is that the best photos should inspire you, move you, and rock your senses! They should speak volumes about you, and showcase all the nuances that make your love story unique.”

Jenny is ever-ready and waiting to capture the most candid and intimate moments of the lovebirds’ day. Her unobtrusive approach, coupled with an almost obsessive need for detail, means that all the couple has to do is to kick-back and have fun!

It is this fresh and honest approach to her work, seeing the world through her romance-tinted lenses, that has won the hearts of many couples spanning the globe. She is well-traveled, her clientele spanning both East and West.

Chiffon & Lace got together with Jenny Sun to give her a short interview about her work.

C&L: Is there a place where you would love to shoot a wedding but haven’t yet?

Jenny: Oh, so many! I would love to shoot on a real rustic farm with horses! And somewhere in Canada, Switzerland, or New Zealand where there are mountains, lakes and meadows all in one area! :D

C&L: What can a bride do to prepare for their photo shoot?

Jenny: Choose a visual theme and communicate that with the photographer from the start through to the finish before the shoot :) Then research research research on images and things that will make that visual theme come to life! :) It’s amazing what ideas can come out through the research process, and how much your photographer can help advise what will or will not work.

C&L: Any advice for the couple on how to select a photographer who best suits them?

Jenny: Choose a photographer whos work you really LOVE (not just like or think is okay), and who you connect with on a personal level. That connection is really important as the better the chemistry between photographer and client, the better the photos turn out. It has ALWAYS been the case from my experience :)
