These underwater wedding photo shoots put your future wedding photo shoot TO SHAME.
Standard wedding photo shoots usually take place in a forest somewhere, with some sun peeking through the treetops and blah blah blah *insert romantic cheesy nonsense here*.
But South Floridian wedding photographer Adam Opris of Adam Opris photography captured these newlyweds in their wedding attire kissing and embracing underwater.
Shooting underwater is such a unique way to tackle the antiquated, boring wedding photo shoot.
Opris explains why he loves shooting brides and grooms under water in an interview with The Huffington Post. He says,
I love seeing how the different dynamics come out underwater when people try and help each other float or mess with each other's hair or make it fun and crazy.
Guys. I need my wedding photos to look like these. They're anything but cheesy. (And it turns out you can kiss under water and still look flawless in your wedding dress!)
Opris points out getting the right shot is no easy feat when there's water — and sting rays — in the mix. So a diving team accompanies both Adam, the photographer and the couples on the shoot to help out. And the couples use scuba gear up until it's time to take the shot.
In order to get the perfect shot, Opris says he needs the right kind of lighting to "preserve skin color and make sure the clients are not blue like the water."
Opris says, "I'm mainly a wedding and maternity photographer, so bringing my clients into this underwater world added a whole new dynamic of creativity and art into their memories."
Despite the fact that capturing these soon-to-be married couples under water is such a different experience than shooting them on land, Opris enjoys making special moments in these couples' lives as special as he can.
He says, "It may look like fun because it absolutely is."
