“Marriage is like jumping off a cliff.” We’ve heard people say this before, but these brave, lovely couples took the aphorism quite literally when they decided to have their wedding photos taken on a 350-foot cliff!
With the help and expertise of photographer Jay Philbrick and his wife, Vicky, you can also have the most spectacular and distinct wedding photos to immortalize that special day. However, you’d have to gather the courage and the strength to show up in one of their “studios” because as you’ll see, they do extreme photo shoots.
“I don’t really have to twist any arms to get models or subjects into the locations I’m interested in,” Philbrick, who is a former climbing guide, said in an interview with DIY Photography.
“We are sort of known for this kind of photography, so many come to us looking for something different.”
It is indeed a one-of-a-kind experience for the models too!
Imagine the bride and groom climbing up the 700 feet high Cathedral Ledge at the Echo Lake State Park in New Hampshire, and then rappelling toward a narrow ledge at 350 feet for those jaw-dropping photos.
Models and clients are safely guided on cliff edges, snow slopes, and even inside water wells, as Philbrick, Vicky, and several trained professionals do daring stunts themselves just to capture that perfect picture.
The faint-hearted shouldn’t fret, though. The husband and wife team take equally mesmerizing pictures inside their photography studio and on other “less intimidating” locations if you’re not up to the challenge.
Horrified Husband Discovered His Wife was a Man After 19 Years of Marriage
How well do you know your spouse?
Love, respect, friendship, and loyalty are the most vital ingredients that make up a happy and lasting marriage. Trust, which is built on honesty is, of course, as equally crucial. Honesty involves bravely and confidently sharing your deepest, darkest secrets to the person you love, knowing that that person can and will accept you no matter what. Perhaps, this is why our parents often reiterate the importance of knowing our partners well before we decide to tie the knot.
Most people would probably agree that lying over trivial matters occasionally is forgivable if our partners only wanted to spare our feelings, but up to what extent is a lie pardonable?
And, what if the person you love so dearly lied about something as significant as his or her gender?
After 19 years of marriage, a 64-year-old Belgian man named Jan found out that his wife was actually born a man. Now, the horrified and devastated husband is seeking for annulment....
“Bottled Air” Sold Out in China Due to Extreme Smog Crisis
In China, breathing fresh air is no longer free! You have to buy “bottled air”!
For most of us, breathing air is still one of the free privileges we can enjoy, especially if we are living in the countryside. But in some parts of China such as Beijing, breathing fresh, clean air now literally comes with a price.
Some places in China are suffering from an extremely thick blanket of smog (a combination of smoke and fog). Beijing reported a red level alert for its smog crisis on December 8, and then Shanghai reporting the same last December 15, 2015.

A Man Suffered from a Nosebleed and What Doctors Pulled Out Was Extremely Shocking.
Doctors at the ER who attended the patient were shocked with what they pulled out.
For some people, nosebleeds are common. If it's too cold, or too hot, expect an epistaxis episode. But what if your nosebleed is so severe that the clot is spread out from your nose to your lungs? Not good. Not good at all.
A Reddit user has posted a photo of a blood clot extracted from the lungs of an unidentified patient. The patient complained of a prolonged case of nosebleed, and when he figured it wasn't going to stop on its own, he decided to seek medical help. Doctors at the ER who attended the patient were shocked with what they pulled out.
Warning: The photo below might be too gross for some. View at your own risk.
The photo was uploaded with the caption:"Eighty-year-old male with nose bleed for two days. Refused to go to ER. Wife finally talked him into going. He coded shortly after arriving. Doctor went to intubate and found this. Pulled it out in one piece. It's a blood clot that went from his nose, down his airway, and into his lungs. It's an amazingly beautiful blood clot." Had he decided to delay his visit to the hospital, the ending of the story would have been entirely different....
