SONIA & JORGE. HUNTER VALLEY WEDDING AT MARGAN WINERY.
SONIA & JORGE
HUNTER VALLEY WEDDING
Words escape me.
That’s it. I can write anything here and it won’t matter when I look over the images below. Photos from Sonia & Jorge’s wedding in the picturesque Hunter Valley tell more story than I could ever hope to write, so I feel defeated typing here.
That said, there’s a few elements the photography doesn’t speak about. Like the fact that half of the family and friends present don’t speak english, and the speeches had to be translated into Portuguese for Jorge’s family and Italian for Sonia’s grandmother, and the reverse to English when they gave their words. And how I was bloody glad to see a few guests, vendors and one of the bridesmaids that were also a part of Rachel & Damian’s wedding we shot the year previous.
Most memorable for me was how easy and natural it was shooting these two, given that we had spent time in the winter prior shooting an extended engagement session around Katoomba and the Blue Mountains. Sonia and Jorge are the real deal - photogenic as hell, organic with each other, and down for anything. And it helped that Jorge is also a photographer, and Sonia dabbles in the creativesphere, so they were even more so familiar and comfortable with having me around taking photos for the full day.
I’d do it all again in a heartbeat.
