You could search for hours and hours on Pinterest for unique wedding photo ideas, but these "I do" pics are not just a Pinterest goal — they're something out of a bonafide fantasy. If you and your hubby-to-be are already taking the plunge, why not do so literally? That's what these brides and grooms did in these totally jaw-dropping underwater wedding photos. Taken by photographer Adam Opris, they'll blow your list of must-have wedding pics out of the water — again, literally...

While you were searching for a gorgeous gazebo or stunning skyline to take your day-of portraits, these brides and grooms scouted their photo locale under-the-sea and in the pool. How's that for an out-of-the-box and off-of-land location? (Your mermaid-loving childhood-self is screaming right now...) Armed with a waterproof camera, the Florida-based Opris captures brides and grooms floating in an underwater wonderland after saying their "I dos" for some seriously magical mementos, a project that got started over two years ago when Opris began shooting his nieces in their swimming pool, according to The Huffington Post.

Nowadays, this photographer has couples clamoring for his unbelievable underwater shots and it's not hard to see why. From the ethereally floating fabric of the wedding dresses, to the brides' flowing hair, to those fairytale-level romantic underwater smooches, have you ever seen anything cooler? "I love seeing how the different dynamics come out underwater, when people try and help each other float or mess with each other's hair," the photographer recently explained to Inside Edition.

So what's keeping you from diving into a pool post-wedding to capture a few especially splashy nuptial pics? After all, you don't have to head to a tropical reef or be a certified SCUBA diver to take a dip in a pool after tying the knot. And If you're cringing at the thought of your dream (and expensive...) wedding dress being submerged, you were really ever going to wear that thing again?
