South Carolina wedding photographer Patrick Hall came up with one of the craziest photoshoot ideas we’ve ever seen – he decided to capture the reactions of people the second they are hit with a stun gun. To make the photo idea even more fun, each person was tazed by their friend or significant other, which “created an interesting dynamic in itself”.

“The person getting tazed was almost always nervous and jittery with either a sense of fear or anxiety. The participants doing the tazing had a different demeanor altogether. Most of them were excited to cause pain to their friend and only showed remorse immediately after executing the electric shock,” says Patrick.

People screamed, laughed and cursed. Others remained surprisingly quiet keeping their composure and neutral facial expressions – there were four guys and girls who “did not react at all and seemed to be completely unphased by the 300,000 volts of electricity”. Below are some of the most painful and funny faces from the hilarious photoshoot.
