A wedding day is one of the most memorable days in the lives of both the bride and the groom. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, or at least that’s what most people plan for. However, in recent years, it’s been a growing trend for brides and grooms to up the ante to make their special day unique and even more memorable than anyone ever imagines. One way they do this is by taking wedding photos that are unlike everyone else’s, whenever possible. At times, this can involve taking risks, but one couple went even further than just the average risky wedding photoshoot.
I know that when my wife and I got married, we were honestly so glad that all of the months of preparation and stress were over that we weren’t that particular about our photographers doing anything too trendy or risky. We just wanted some photos to capture our special day and be done with it. However, the couple featured here went further than most brides and grooms ever do. The couple is from Arkansas and they took things to the new level of extreme when they posed for dramatic and heart-stopping photos on the edge of a cliff. The photographer was Mason Gardner and he shared the photos to his Facebook page.
Ironically, this was the first wedding he ever shot, and was he in for a surprise. He actually considered himself “lucky” that the bride and groom were “down to do something a little more extreme than usual.” The couple was Skye and Ryan and they basically went over one of the many cliffs in Arkansas. In one memorable photo, the bride looked like she was literally falling off the cliff. As it turns out, the bride did have a climbing safety harness attached to her dress.
If you try something like this for your special day, be sure to take the same precautions this couple took. Unfortunately, some stunts like this have resulted in tragedy.
