Everyone wants to remember all the special moments on their wedding day. And people think one wedding photographer really went the extra mile to capture a Kentucky couple's first kiss.
On September 8, Lorna Dane Gantt, 24, and Joshua Gantt, 33, got married, and the wedding photographer had no choice but shove Lorna's stepmother out of the way to capture the couple's first kiss on camera, Lorna told INSIDER. Lorna said her stepmother was in the way of their hired photographer, Ashley Easterling.
"Ok, so I politely asked several times for her to move. She popped off something smart.... I told her I was the paid photographer, then she told me I wasn't doing my job and walked right in front of me," Easterling wrote in a comment on a video posted on Facebook of the incident. "Nope. Im [sic] paid to do a job, and dang it... this girl is doing her job one way or the other."
Although the moment of the "little shove," as Lorna calls it, went viral, it all proved to be worth it. On Wednesday, she shared the video from a different angle, as well as the moment of their first kiss, on Facebook.
Lorna's Facebook friends seemed to love the post, and have .
"Lol this is great," one person wrote. "You do what you have to do! Great job Ashley! #savage," another commenter said. "Good on you for shoving her out of the way! I can't believe how little common sense people have," a third person said.

"I looked at her and said, 'You are fine, you are here to do a job that my husband and I paid you to do I'm not mad at you," she told the photographer.
At the end of the day, the newlyweds don't mind that they went viral, even if it did cause some tension in their family, as Lorna said she and her stepmom already had a tense relationship.
And, to be honest, Lorna's just happy Easterling got the perfect picture.

"I applaud Ashley for capturing my special moment; she made sure to go above and beyond to do whatever she had to do to make sure I got the pictures we paid for," she said. "I couldn't be more thankful."
