The Weeding Shooootttt!

At the famous 100-year-old Church of the Annunciation in Pengzhou, China.

Very early morning May 12, photographer Wang went about preparing to shoot wedding pictures for a young couple, this was the test shot before the shoot...
And then it happened.... the earth quake! 7.8 on the Richter scale.

Pengzhou is located in the Sichuan province. It was morning May 12, 2008. Bricks fall from the building during the earthquake, which turned Wang from a wedding photographer into a journalist.

A cracked facade was all that remained of the 100-year-old Church of the Annunciation after the quake. Most of the church 'collapsed in 10 seconds,' said Wang, who lives in Chengdu, capital of hard-hit Sichuan province.
'Thank God we were only shooting from outside the church!' remarked a helper.
