San Diego Photographer: Scott and Benita | Wedding
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the internet is such a crazy place! Back when I was planning my wedding I read the site WeddingBee. Oh, who am I kidding… I still read it! The website has brides write about their planning process and then follow up with recaps after their wedding. They have cute monikers so the women don’t have to use their real names. As I was planning my wedding, Mrs. Avocado was blogging about hers. I just loved her sense of humor, how real she was and how gorgeous her pictures were. I started following her personal blog after she signed off from the ‘Bee.
In January, Jenna posted on Twitter that she would be shooting a wedding in San Diego and would need second shooters. I offered my assistance with anything she needed and would hold a ladder or a light reflector if she would let me! Luckily, she didn’t think I was crazy and agreed to have me tag along.
The Friday night before the wedding, I was too excited to sleep. Seriously, it was like Christmas. And I have to tell you guys, Jenna is so amazingly awesome in person. It is so crazy to meet someone you’ve only known online. She’s a fantastic mentor, letting me have the freedom to take the shots I wanted and make me feel really comfortable. Dare I say it, we made a great team.
Ok ok, enough about Jenna Cole (check her out here!) let me get to this couple. Scott and Benita are crazy about each other. Absolutely head over heels. I got to work with Scott as he was getting ready and he was constantly asking about Benita. “How is she doing? How does she look? She is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to me.” Watching Benita walk up to her groom, located on the cliffs of La Jolla, you could just feel her excitement. She was going to see the man she was to marry! She was positively giddy. You can tell these two crack each other up all the time.
Thank you both for being so amazing. The weather amazingly held out until they walked in the temple (and then it started pouring!). But they were up for anything and just so excited to get married. And a big thank you to Jenna for taking a chance on me. I hope to work with you again soon!
