One photographer has an incredible addition to her arsenal of wedding photography after capturing a newlywed bride and groom while a burning building formed the backdrop.
Portrait, couple, and wedding photographer Megan Allen of Studio 22 Photography had just left the wedding reception of Dillon and Corrie Jameson in order to snap some pictures of the pair on their big day.
Recalling the excitement, Allen said, “Immediately, I ran toward the bride, Corrie, to alert her, and I was thrilled when she met me halfway through the reception hall, breathless, and said, ‘We have to go to the fire for photos!’”
The venture was no easy feat, including climbing up a gravel hill and crossing a train track to get a spot close enough, something less than ideal in a wedding dress. The images seem to have been worth it since what resulted is a series of epic photos that have a volcanic feel to them.
Allen described the couple as “fearless,” and said she’s always willing to go as far as her couples are.
Thankfully, the burning building was confirmed by police to be abandoned and that nobody was hurt. Two juveniles were arrested on a count of arson.
