The Saudade farewell.

Photo by Christelle Rall, a Cape Town, South Africa wedding photographer at Christelle Rall Photography.

This was taken during the ceremony when the father of the bride gave his daughter away to her new husband. He was very emotional (but happy) and I think he just got too overwhelmed by the moment. We have all seen this moment unfold a hundred times, but what stands out about this image (and what I love about it), is the contrasting emotions of the dad and the bride. The bride being so excited to finally getting to marry her dream guy after eight years and the dad just sad to see his little baby off.
