a rainy day wandering in the hunter valley | James & Lisa | couple shoot

One of my favourite #lovenotelovers sessions almost didn't happen. My idea was to capture some sweet images of our friends James & Lisa in the Hunter Valley where they had been living for almost 10 years before they relocated to Melbourne to start a new section of their life. On the morning we planned to shoot I woke up feeling terrible and really didn't think I would last the day... to make it even worse my dream of sunlit grapevines was dashed when grey clouds came over and rain started to fall. But in typical style these two pulled it together and made the whole session absolute fun. For those who know James he is one of the funniest guys I've met and has a whole stash of dad jokes and model poses - between each of these photos we were laughing our faces off. We even managed to sneak in a little Hunter Valley picnic & wine organised by the lovely Lisa as the rain cleared for a while. As we arrived at our final location the rain really poured down and by this stage we were deliriously laughing as we ran in the rain under the cover of the trees. A long hot shower and warm clothes once home made it a really lovely day.

Thank you to my lovely husband Nelson for second shooting with me - it's always better when we are together!
