Sometimes our role as wedding photographers is to be in exactly the right place to capture those amazing emotional moments that happen throughout a wedding day. It might sound easy… you just happen to be there with a camera in hand and boom.. but it’s a real skill to be able to be present but allow your subjects to lose their consciousness of the camera, to let down the guard, to just be in the moment. On top of that we are constantly thinking of composition and light but when you get all those factors right and wait for precisely the right second, images like this can happen. This is simply stunning. Captured by the lovely Jo Donaldson, this is the moment a bride catches sight of the man that she will marry that day arriving at the hotel. She can see him but he cannot yet see her.. this really does take away your breath and is beauty at its most serene.
