Daring Bride and Groom Pose in Front of Whirling Tornado

When bad weather was predicted for their wedding weekend, this adventurous couple and their wedding photographer didn't let that get them down. The Canadian couple and photographer Colleen Niska took advantage of the situation and sought out the dramatic skies before the rain started pouring down.

Little did they know they would remember their special day in a much more unique way than ever expected! “We just happened to be at the right place at the right time in good old Saskatchewan, Canada,” Niska said. The lucky shots feature the brave couple standing along a gravel road with a massive tornado whirling in the background. The scene was completely by accident. The couple was posing for their photos when the tornado appeared in the dark skies and Niska quickly snapped some shots as the funneling storm touched down in the background.

“We were a long ways from it and so we weren't frightened or anything and it wasn't heading in our direction,” Niska explained. “We were pretty excited as none of us had witnessed a tornado before and thought it was a pretty cool opportunity. I wasn't going to pass on it!”
