Shortly before shooting his friends Leslie Seiler and Paul Kingston's May 31 nuptials, Toronto-based photographer Tony Lombardo, spotted the now massively shared picture of a dinosaur chasing down a bridal party by Quinn Miller. "I had the idea of AT-ATs on my way to the wedding, so I pitched it," he told Yahoo! Shine in a phone interview. He already knew that the couple were big 'Star Wars' fans. "The bride said, 'Let's totally do it!'"
Just before the ceremony, he set up the shot and captured it in one take. "The bride, the groom, their friends-we're all part of the Toronto comedy community," he explained. "Everyone in the wedding party is a professional actor or comedian, so they totally sold it.
After the ceremony, Lombardo and his wife, Danielle, took set up their son's AT-AT toys under the same lighting conditions on a seamless backdrop and used Photo shop to meticulously combine the images.
He says he thought the photo might be a hit when an older "undisclosed relative" called him and said, "Tony, I think your picture has a virus."
Looks like Bridezillas aren't the only monsters wedding guests need to watch out for these days.
