Extreme Wedding Photo!
Tel Aviv area photographer Arik Siman-tov had been planning to shoot a photo so “extreme,” nobody would forget it. Then, he says, he was contacted by a bride, Natasha Samuel, who was looking “to do something that hadn't been done before.” It was a match — as they say — made in heaven.
Together they came up with the idea of lighting the bride's dress on fire, which she would then extinguish by running into the Mediterranean Sea. In the video below, Siman-tov is seen sparking the fire on the back of the dress and commands Samuel to quickly run into the sea to put it out.
The image is dramatic. Though it looks like her entire back is on fire, the flame never actually touched her back, according to Siman-tov. But it did get frighteningly close.
