Photographer Lindsey Villatoro of Lovesong Photography recently did something that is warming the hearts of the entire photo community and beyond: she gave a daughter the surprise of a lifetime when she put together a ceremony where her dying father got the chance to walk her down the aisle something he very likely wont get to do again.
Villatoro is a wedding and portrait photographer who spends her free time working with charities and cancer organizations to give the gift of photography to terminally ill patients and their families. Thats how she met the Zetz family.
Jim Zetz, 62, has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, and so he and his wife Grace scheduled a photo shoot with Villatoro. During the shoot she found out that their daughter Josie would be turning 11 on March 14th, and so she offered to do something for her as well.
When she got home she posted the story to her website to see if she could raise some money or gifts for Josies 11th birthday. This could be the last birthday she gets to spend with her father, and Villatoro wanted to make sure it would be extra special.

THANKS A LOT! I can’t see a damned thing now!
Stories like this remind me that I’m still human. Thanks!
Nice. I’m sure it will be played at her real wedding.

Powerful stuff.As is *this* story.
Notice a lot of commentators have been projecting their own disordered sexual thoughts on this story. I wonder where they stand on the political spectrum?
I literally couldn’t believe how they were perceiving this touching event. A sure sign of the insanity dwelling within that they would rant about child slavery and other nonsense.
So sweet. Thank you!
