WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A Kansas photographer is gaining national attention after wedding photos he shot in April went viral.

One photo, in particular, shows an older woman standing in front of the bride with a big smile on her face and tossing flowers everywhere. Thomas Felts, the owner of Thomas Felts Photography, says that's because she was the flower girl.

The Winfield native who now resides in Emporia says the photo started gaining traction after a family member of the bride posted it in the Facebook group, Pantsuit Nation.

Felts says since then, the Huffington Post and Fox News have printed stories on the photo. He says he's also getting phone calls from news stations from across the country.
