As I was driving home after shooting a wedding in country Victoria (the state I live in) I noticed a beautiful sunset forming in the distance. I drove back to the reception, picked up the bride and groom and drove back to the field overlooking the sunset. We all jumped the fence and I asked the couple to walk up to the gap between the trees. Our timing couldn’t be more perfect! I posed the couple in the distance by talking to each other with our cell phones. Just as I finished directing them, rays of light literally blessed our efforts. The light was breathtaking for about one minute before the sun was fully revealed. I slightly underexposed the sky to make the scene even more dramatic. I took the couple back to the reception which was five minutes away and drove home with a big smile on my face. Extraordinary effort, extraordinary results!
