Wedding photographer James Day shared an incredible image that went viral because of the beautiful story it told.

He tells the story of the bride and groom, Adrian and Roslyn, who got married in Bowral.

“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,” he wrote on social media.

“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.”

He continued: “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.”

Just beautiful.
