Skipping the Snapshot Sunday to share with you a gorgeous engagement shoot right from the Hunter Valley!

This afternoon we’re joined by Jenny Sun who shot Alison and Kim in the Hunter Valley wine region at Peppers Convent resort. Alison and Kim were engaged in the vineyards and wanted to have their engagement photos taken there. Vineyards hold a special place in my heart – the lime green leaves, the amazing light and the promise of something amazing.

Now that we’re headed into the dark and gloomy months in the Southern Hemisphere, it seems like it’s possible to comprehend cooler weather shoots!

This is the engagement shoot of Anna & Chris taken in Richmond Park in Surrey.

I really love the simple beauty of these photographs (plus they make me feel warm and snuggly with those wintery outfits and the dark gloomy sky!)

Photos today are by Marianne Taylor.
