Posed wedding photos can certainly be beautiful, but there’s something to be said for the raw, genuine emotion that’s captured in candid shots.

On April 30, photographer James Day was taking wedding pictures for a couple named Adrian and Roslyn, who tied the knot in Bowral, Australia. He was setting them up for some posed sunset photos when he was struck with a better idea.
