Day 2 of 5 | Adventurous Wedding Photos | Lightning Striking at Colorado Wedding

By, April 02, 2013

Today, we bring you one of our favorite adventurous wedding photos, taken near Red Rocks Park, Colorado. Though many people assume the lightning was Photoshopped in, it definitely wasn’t.

The photo was taken at about 5,400 feet elevation, in an open field, with lightning hitting almost every 15 seconds. Our photographer was holding a metal camera, and the bride and groom were gripping an aluminum umbrella! It probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but we all were committed.

Everyone agreed that if this shot had resulted in being struck by lighting, it would have been an amazing last photograph. Fortunately, everyone lived to tell the story, and of course, to enjoy the photo!

Day 1 of 5 | Adventurous Wedding Photos | Motorcycle Jump Over the Bride and Groom

By, April 01, 2013

Get ready for a wild week!  For the next five days we will feature “Adventurous Wedding Photos” that we’ve taken at events across the globe. Let’s “jump right in” to our first featured image!

When we arrived at Serenity Oaks Ranch for Rachel and Mike’s wedding, we were greeted by the valet guy, and his mini motorcycle. Because we had a very adventurous bride and groom on our hands, we asked the valet if he could do any tricks. A big smile appeared on his face, and he led us to a row of jumps in the back of the venue!

We didn’t want to get Rachel’s dress dirty, so our groom sat on a towel with the bride on his lap. The valet revved up his bike, and executed a heel kick just about a foot above Rachel and Mike’s heads. We would not recommend this to everyone, but it definitely made for an unforgettable image!
