Captured at the Napa Valley winery Brasswood by Arizona-based wedding photographers Jonnie and Garrett, this candid shot was taken during a first look with the bride and her dad. "The minute he turned around, he had a jaw-dropping moment, literally, and looked at her with so much joy and overflowing love," recall the photographers, who just couldn't get over the dad's large mouth and popping eyes. "The moment was followed by a huge embrace as Mom joined to spend a few minutes with her daughter before the ceremony."

The photo duo knew they'd be in for an emotion-packed day when they first met the bride's parents. "Janice's dad is one of those people who makes you feel like family the minute you meet," they say. "When it came time for the bride to make the big reveal, we had a feeling this would be special. We feel so much joy and excitement when we look at this photo!"
