James was taking photos at Adrian and Roslyn's wedding and when it was time for sunset, he prepared for the money shot.

However, instead of using professional techniques and manoeuvres, he decided to go back to basics and told the couple to simply enjoy their "first sunset together as husband and wife".

What happened next is one of those perfect moments, so perfect in fact that in caused James himself to cry and he has explained why in his own words in a post published to his social channels.

"Tonight I was photographing Adrian & Roslyn at sunset. I was setting up those grand sunset scenes... you know the ones... the little people in a big scene... I love those kinda shots... but tonight that just didn't seem enough.

"Just as the light became amazing I scrapped everything I knew and I walked up to them and said, "guys, stop posing. Just enjoy your first sunset together as husband and wife".

"They then held each other in the most beautiful way... It was so much more beautiful than anything I could ever set up.

"Then I said to Adrian, "I have a question for you, but I want you to tell the answer to Roslyn and not me." I continued, "Out of the billions of people on the planet, you've chosen to spend the rest of your life with Roslyn. Can you tell her why?"

"In a matter of moments I could start seeing Roslyn's eyes glisten, then the most beautiful tears streamed down her face.

"Then I found myself crying.

"Oh Love, You are oh so precious".
