This Wedding Photo Has An Amazingly Beautiful Backstory And People On Twitter Can’t Stop Crying

Sometimes the most beautiful photos are the ones that aren’t planned. Just ask this couple, who’s wedding photographer decided to go rogue and asked them to stop posing during their photoshoot.

The photo turned out beautifully, but it was the photographer’s explanation that really touched people.

Tonight I was photographing Adrian & Roslyn at sunset.I was setting up those grand sunset scenes… you know the ones… the little people in a big scene… I love those kinda shots… but tonight that just didn’t seem enough.
Just as the light became amazing I scrapped everything I knew and I walked up to them and said, “guys, stop posing. Just enjoy your first sunset together as husband and wife”.
They then held each other in the most beautiful way… It was so much more beautiful than anything I could ever set up.

But the now-viral photo of the bride crying had an even more beautiful story behind it.

Then I said to Adrian, “I have a question for you, but I want you to tell the answer to Roslyn and not me.” I continued, “Out of the billions of people on the planet, you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with Roslyn. Can you tell her why?”
In a matter of moments I could start seeing Roslyn’s eyes glisten, then the most beautiful tears streamed down her face.
Then I found myself crying.
Oh Love, You are oh so precious.

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

OK, the whole Internet is crying.
