Moment quake struck captured in wedding photos
Adjust font size:
Confused and shocked, a couple and their photographer try to come to terms with what has just happened.
Five couples were shooting wedding albums near a hundred year old church when Monday's (May 12) earthquake struck. Cameras caught the moment the church and other buildings collapsed. A reporter later spoke by telephone to the bride in this photo. She said she had heard no news of the fate of her relatives in Wolong town, Wenchuan county. Her joy had turned to anguish and worry.
