The bride, Katie, had just put her dress on and sat down to read a note from her husband and tears flowed instantly. Her mother watched from the doorway until she was done and went to sit next to her, hold her, and joyfully cry with her about the journey that Katie was about to head off on. As soon as her mom sat down, she smiled, they both laughed, and that’s where this beautiful moment comes from. Nothing but pure, simple, and radiant joy. I’d shoot this moment a thousand times over and still not be bored of it.
