Romantic Movie-Style Wedding Photo

Photographer Tram Tran just sent us this great photo of couple Daniel and Irene on their wedding day.

Tran worked with fellow photographer Linhberg to set up this dreamy shot that features the kissing couple, an empty parking structure and a flying plane. Doesn’t it feel like you’re watching the ending of a romantic movie?

“Linhbergh and I collaborated on this really amazing surreal wedding photo with a plane flying overhead,” said Tran. “We timed the shot as I was in the hotel room on the 14th floor. We coordinated the groom and bride to be at the front of the hotel at a certain time with Linhbergh already in the car, he drove the to top of the parking structure. We had looked up the time of when and how often the planes were landing and had the couple ready. Once the time came, we took the shot.”

When asked just how much Photoshop was involved, Tran told us this. “Only photoshopping is high-keying the photo. The bride, groom, and airplane are all real.”
