- And now, on their tenth birthday, there is a third image with their daughter
- Wedding photographer James Day teamed up with an instructor to take the photos
A married couple who enjoy learning acrobatics in their spare time captured a unique wedding photo ten years later, with their two children helping to perform the difficult tricks.
Wedding photographer James Day met Jen and Justin at their ‘very laid-back’ wedding in Newtown, Sydney, where they rented out their favorite restaurant for guests to eat after the ceremony.
During the couple’s photo shoot on the grounds of the University of Sydney, Jen and Justin decided to perform a difficult gymnastics move, biting Mr. Day for the couple to cherish the moment.
‘She’s a doctor and he works in software. Acrobatics is just a hobby and to this day only Jen has continued to do it,” Mr Day told Daily Mail Australia.

Fate had it that Mr Day was asked to photograph Jen’s sister’s wedding five years later and Jen and Justin – as guests – decided to strike the same pose for the camera – this time with their young son in tow.
“It was completely opportunistic. Then they contacted me in lockdown and asked if I could take some more photos of them after the restrictions ended. This time it’s with two kids,” Mr. Day said.
“So at the first opportunity we could, and as close to their 10-year anniversary as possible, we went for it.”
On the special day, the couple brought along their acrobatic instructor Jonathan from the Sydney Acrobatics School, who drew up a list of different poses they could perform with all four individuals.

One of those photos mimics the first two they had taken at their wedding and their sister’s reception, which they were able to hold for more than a few seconds.
“He drew them all out and we went through a whole series of them,” said the photographer.

Even the kids, who don’t do acrobatics, could stay up for the impressive pose.
And they’ve already set their sights on making the statue a family tradition.
“At the end of the day, Jen and Justin said ‘see you in five years,'” Mr. Day said.
