A few weeks before Jess and Sams' wedding day, I visited Sirromet Winery to check out a few spots I had in mind for their portraits. Exploring the back paddock, I imagined the scene that would unfold as sunlight would bath the long grass and tall trees in a yellow glow.
Mother Nature - as she so often does - had other ideas. Dark moody skies, thunder and heavy rain prevailed in what turned out to be a wet, windy, stormy day.
And yet, as though a gift to this wonderful couple on their wedding day, Mother Nature parted the clouds for just an hour after the ceremony to let the most incredible light shine through. Not so much as I had imagined those few weeks before, but much, much more.
Sam + Jess. This is your story.
