Wedding photographers may be behind the camera all night long, but that doesn't mean they're immune to the powerful emotions of the day.

"The bride, Kelsey, planned a special moment for her dad to see her for the first time on her wedding day. While I photographed the two of them, her mom tried to stay out of my way. But when I saw her excitement, I knew I had to capture it." - Laura Zastrow
"The father of the bride passed away shortly before the wedding day. So the bride did a dance with her brothers and uncles." - Mike Allebach
