An effort to take the peace, serenity and perhaps the monotony out of wedding photos has brought a hot trend that incorporates some slightly dark humor: wedding party attack photos.
Beginning with Quinn Miller’s image of a Tyrannosaurus Rex crashing a wedding party’s photo op, the fad is gaining in popularity among newlyweds.

Inspired by the viral image of a dinosaur attacking a wedding party, admitted “Star Wars” nerds Danielle and Tony Lombardo of Little Blue Lemon Photography made Imperial AT-AT walkers the uninvited guests at the wedding of Leslie Seiler and Paul Kingston.
Danielle and Tony photographed their son’s AT-AT toy in their studio, recreating the same lighting conditions of the wedding photo, and meticulously stitched the two photos together.

In another photo, Mr. Stay Puft, the marshmallow man from the movie “Ghostbusters,” paid a surprise visit to a wedding party in Ontario, Canada.

Josiah Moore turned his own wedding photo of himself and wife Ruthie into a post-apocalyptic, zombie nightmare.
“I had always had this idea in my head of us fighting off our zombie bridal party,” said Moore. ”My wife was fun and willing enough (thankfully) to go along with my crazy idea.” (© Josiah Moore)
