Have I mentioned how much I love country weddings ? I think it is because I am a country girl at heart. I grew up in far north South Australia in a little railway town and it is the happiest time of my childhood. I also love how warm and friendly country folk are and the beauty of the open spaces.
Kendall and Travis got married on 8.2.14 in a sweet, tiny church in the Barossa Valley, called Neukirch Lutheran Church which is just down the road from Kendall’s childhood home. Travis is a farmer and we took photos of the boys at his family farm. It was beautiful and super cool for photos. Marley the adorable border collie played a big part as well as the pastel blue ute belonging to Travis’s grandpa. The theme was elegant rustic with hints of green. The reception was at Chateau Tanunda, a stunning old venue.
Allison and I had a wonderful day. It was VERY hot but we stayed in the zone and didn’t let the weather enter our minds.
I was very touched by Kendall and Travis’s love and the closeness of their family.
I was honoured to tell their story in my pictures. This wedding reminds me that as a photographer I do far more than taking photos. I capture moments that are hugely precious and fleeting. A photo can convey what words at times cannot.
Life is a gift
Love is beautiful
Love is family
