Photographer Slips and Captures Wedding Party’s Shocked Faces During His Fall

Wedding photographer Chase Richardson was in the process of capturing Kristina and Will Moore‘s wedding party at Mississippi's McClain Lodge when something unexpected happened–he accidentally slipped and tumbled to the ground!

“It had been raining all morning so I ended up photographing the wedding party under this covered slab of concrete basically,” Richardson told PetaPixel. “There were puddles everywhere, and when I took a step back to get ready for the photo I just… slipped and fell. Pretty embarrassing.”

In the midst of his fall, the photographer's finger pressed the camera's shutter button and he ended up capturing the party's reaction to his sudden slip. While the fall unfortunately broke his camera lens and cut Richardson's finger, he was still able to salvage the photographs. When uploading them onto his computer, he realized that he'd captured the wedding party's shocked (and slightly comical) faces on the way down.

Recently, this hilariously unplanned image has gone viral online, after being featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon during the #WeddingFails segment.
