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.
