one moment – remembering those that cannot be with us


I really love this photograph and is one of my favorite documentary images from this wedding.  During a ceremony, people often pause and take time to remember “those that cannot be with us.”  I was crouched low near the bride’s side.  When that moment came, I heard this long, deep sigh right behind me.  The grandfather of the bride was being comforted by the bride’s brother.  I turned.  One shot.  One moment.
