"the party was finished and i had already said goodbye to the couple," writes #yourshotphotographer mateo boffano. "suddenly they tried to throw the brother of the bride into the water, i took the camera out of my bag and made just three shots.” this photo was selected for the february 15, 2019 edition of our photos of the week series.

“the timing is awesome — just as the bride's brother's fingers touch the surface of the water. the golden light is lovely in this hilarious moment. hopefully he wasn't too upset, ha!” — @natgeoyourshot associate photo editor kristen mcnicholas (@kemcnicholas )

"although i must admit, this encounter was a little too close for comfort -- i am deathly afraid of hippos."
