Photo of the Day - May 10

“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.”
