When Michael Wolber and April Hartley were preparing for their wedding, they couldn’t have imagined that wildfires would play a major role.

But before they walked down the aisle on June 7 in Bend, Oregon, firefighters told them to evacuate their wedding party to a safer location due to nearby bushfires that were gaining momentum.

Before they left for the new locale, the couple and their photographer, Josh Newton, decided to take some traditional wedding photos, but with the 6,000 acre wildfire as a backdrop.
