5 Moments that Make Photographers Cry

Weddings are happy occasions, but who among us hasn’t shed a tear or two at a beautiful wedding? Photographers are no different!

Happy criers, you are not alone. Emerald Stone has a few moments that make even the photographers tear up on the bride and groom’s big day.
