Photographer James Day captured some heartfelt and genuine moments of Adrian and Roslyn, a couple who recently tied the knot in Bowral, Australia which moved the internet to tears.
Day described the whole process on how he managed encapsulate the touching moment of the couple and translate it to photos.
“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.
“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.”
Day was able to capture real and raw emotions through his lens that mirrored the love shared between the couple.
“I like that they were able to share that moment privately ― well, until it went viral on the internet,” day told Huffington Post.
