I’ve been plotting this shot for 2 years but the circumstances just never let it happen. I even asked one bride and her bridesmaid that we ran into down on the Halifax waterfront, “Hey I have an idea for 2 arm wrestling brides. Can I buy you a beer and we’ll grab a shot?”
Reply: “NO. Thats the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard in my life”
So 2 weeks ago at the Westin, Steph and I were shooting with Julie + Steve and we were setting up an iphone shot (they’re both openly addicted to their phones) and after the shot as we walked back to the room this beautiful brides crosses our path. Steph’s eyes bugged out of her head as she looked at me and whispered, “Arm Wrestle!”
Two years of thinking about this shot was over in 17 seconds. Its nothing how I imagined it but it was a lot of fun to finally get it. Its very Good vs Evil. Blonde vs Brunette and the girls just killed it. (Thank You Julie and bride who’s name I do not know!)
So you want to know who won? Well, look at the biceps on both of these ladies…
Right before the reception started everyone went back up to the room to freshen up (and get my iphone). we had 2 minutes to grab a few shots on the balcony. Pocket wizards misfired all over the place but we still managed to grab something dark and dramatic.
