Whether they're posed or candid, the best kind of wedding photos are the ones that have great lighting, solid composition, and happy, radiant subjects. But the viral picture featured in the video above (and seen below) takes the elements of a candid photo to the next level!
Groomsmen Tyler Foster thought it would be a great idea to jump in the air next to a bridesmaid while posing for pictures at his cousin's beach destination wedding in Jamaica. "I was kind of thinking I wish I could just stay up here and fly away," Foster tells ABC News of his decision to spice things up.
But it turns out that he's not the aerial dancer he hoped he would be. Not only did his pants rip open during his high-flying acrobatics, he kicked straight in the direction of the bridesmaid next to him. "I whacked the bridesmaid in the head and split my pants right at the peak of my jump," he adds. The impact from his kick knocked the bridesmaid over!

Luckily, no one got hurt, other than his tan pants. The bridesmaid laughed off the incident, so Foster decided to share it with Reddit, the viral marketplace of the Internet. Within a week, the hilarious image has gotten more than 1,000 comments.
Foster also tells ABC News some folks are taking the incident a bit too seriously. "People started saying it was the worst wedding picture ever, you know, this guy ruined his cousin's wedding. They're asking me, 'Did the bridesmaid die?'"
Maybe this'll teach rogue groomsmen to stay on two feet in the future. Regardless, it's an image that no one will forget anytime soon!
