A wedding photographer in America unwittingly produced a magical wedding photo after he took a snap whilst falling backwards, leaving the wedding party with their mouths wide open aghast at the impending fall.
Chase Richardson, from Mississippi, took the wonky picture as he was flying through the air after slipping on the wet ground. However, it certainly gave the happy couple and their wedding party a unique wedding photo, which went viral after Jimmy Fallon, a US chat show host, tweeted the image to his millions of followers.
The photographer said of the fall:
“There were puddles everywhere, and when I took a step back to get ready for the photo I just… slipped and fell. Pretty embarrassing.”
Whilst a unique photo was produced on this occasion, it does allude to the pitfalls of being a professional wedding photographer. Manchester is known for its drizzly weather, so it’s certainly an ever looming threat to photographers around this city.
For those that are interested in seeing the photo, they can check out the Daily Mail website or indeed look at Fallon’s twitter page.
The wedding party itself was not identified when the picture went viral, although no doubt they will look back with a chuckle and feel honoured that their happy day has given such joy to many people. The bride should also give thanks to the stellar work her bridesmaids undertook in trying to keep a smiling face whilst the photographer was falling down.
