A Helicopter Crashed This Bride's Photo Shoot And The Pic Is Insane

The definition of getting more than you bargained for.

 This bridal portrait will surely make the album:

The shot of a lifetime: a bride poses while a rescue helicopter zooms overhead.

The shot of a lifetime: a bride poses while a rescue helicopter zooms overhead.

The pic, taken by photographer CM Leung in Iceland, depicts an Icelandic Coast Guard helicopter flying dangerously close to a bride posing for portraits.

According to PetaPixel, the chopper wasn’t a planned part of the shoot; it flew overhead on a mission to rescue a man who had fallen down a cliff. An eye witness told PetaPixel the helicopter was actually a “relatively safe distance away.”

In the end, CM Leung ended up with a pretty dramatic shot ― and right in the nick of time, as the helicopter’s downdraft knocked the bride off-balance (and sent her veil flying!) seconds later. Check out the crazy moment and more from the shoot in the behind-the-scenes video below.
