Talking to PetaPixel, the photographer, Chase Richardson, said,
“I got set up for the shot, and when I adjusted my stance I slipped in the water and fell. I cut my finger open and broke the camera lens I was using. It made this horrible screeching noise for the rest of the day.”
Further, he added,
“It had been raining all morning so I ended up photographing the wedding party under this covered slab of concrete basically. There were puddles everywhere, and when I took a step back to get ready for the photo I just … slipped and fell. Pretty embarrassing.”
Although Richardson’s camera didn’t survive the fall, the photographer came away with a cut on his finger. Later, when he loaded the photos onto his computer, he noticed this epic wedding photo he’d captured – mid-fall.
Well, even though we’re sorry his camera didn’t survive the tumble, we sure are happy that he accidentally captured this epic wedding photo.
