Wedding photographers know that the moments they capture on camera for a couple on their special day are memories that will be cherished forever.

So when something unexpected happens, the photographer is there to soak up every second.


For Molly Giangreco, a photographer in Omaha, Nebraska, one of those moments came last month as she was snapping the last few shots of a wedding party downtown.

As she gathered the groomsmen for a few final pictures on the strip, "this girl on a scooter and her husband came rolling through," Giangreco told Buzzfeed News.

It was unclear if the woman even knew that she had just photobombed a wedding photoshoot, but when the groomsmen started cheering, asking her to come back through again, she didn't hesitate.

"She just nailed it with her facial expression," Giangreco remarked.

After one final pass through, the woman was gone.

It wasn't until Giangreco was editing the photos on July 4 that she decided she wanted to find the woman, affectionally dubbed "scooter girl."

So she posted the photos on her photography business's Facebook page asking the community to help her find the woman so she could see the joy that she had spread that day.

It only took an hour for Facebook to do its thing and track down the woman, Kenyatta Jefferson, a local business owner from Omaha, who left a grateful comment on the post:

Jefferson was tickled by the reaction, and has since embraced her "Scooter Girl" persona, telling Yahoo Lifestyle:

"I love doing spontaneous things and making people laugh. And this one happened to go viral."

And people were clearly loving the joy Jefferson was bringing in the photos.

Jefferson was perhaps more inspirational than she even realized.

Many people started tagging Ellen DeGeneres to try to get Jefferson on the show.

It certainly seems like something Ellen would love.

So if you're reading this, Ellen, get Scooter Girl on your show STAT!

With all of the negative news out there, it's always refreshing to see heartwarming stories like this.

Giangreco echoed those sentiments, saying:

"Some people might get mad about things like this happening on their wedding day, but this is a story about embracing whatever happens."

We couldn't agree more.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
