The photographer behind this incredible drone photo of two newlyweds says it was a total accident

Drone newlyweds photoInstagram/Brandon LiThis photo was a lucky coincidence.

Travel filmmaker Brandon Li was flying a drone high above Hong Kong, searching for epic shots of the sunset. Instead, he got an epic shot of two newlyweds laying on a roof, PetaPixel reports

Li didn’t even notice the couple until after the drone had landed and he was reviewing the footage from its flight. After a little editing (a bit of colour correction and photoshopping away what appeared to be a pile of clothes near their feet), Li shared the photo on social media, asking if anyone could identify the couple. 

“[I have] no idea who they are, but I assume they were practicing a pose for a wedding photograph or something,” he told PetaPixel. “Or maybe they were just making lawn angels.” 

Here’s the original shot on Li’s instagram:

It appears the happy newlyweds still haven’t been identified  —  but you can follow Li on Facebook and Instagram for updates on the search to find them.
