Great Pictures Lead to Great Publications: San Diego Spotlights Brant Bender Photography’s Star Clients!
A wedding so beautiful, it had to be shared with all of San Diego.
On October 6, 2018, I was lucky enough to capture all-star couple William and Richard’s whimsical wedding that took over San Diego’s famous and jaw-dropping historical landmark, Prado at Balboa Park. Inspired by the World’s Fair that took place at San Diego in 1916, their wedding featured coattails, top hats, bow ties, and happy-go-lucky dancing and fun.
I worked with Richard and William on their engagement shoot and wedding photos, where I learned about how they met, the spark between them, and what they envisioned as their perfect wedding day. I can confirm their (en)vision came true; the wedding was seamless and stunning, where every photo I took, candid or formal, included a huge smile or a teary grin (huge kudos to the master of wedding planning, Courtney at Breezy Day Weddings!) Their captivating love story and wedding served as inspiration for couples brainstorming their very own creative, unique, story-telling wedding that would take place in the San Diego area.
San Diego Style Weddings, a local magazine that shares the best resources for all things weddings, provides readers southern-California-specific tips, vendors, services, and inspiration, from engagement to post-wedding. S.D.S.W. picked up Richard’s and William’s wedding photos and included them in their December 2019-January 2020 issue. Check out page 118 to see how Richard and William celebrated a stunning World’s Fair Wedding together with their guests and loved ones at the iconic Prado!
Seeing these photos and their wedding story in S.D.S.W. fills me with so much happiness. I remember taking those photos with Richard and William, and I remember loving to capture them and their guests on the happiest day of their lives in one of the most beautiful buildings in Southern California. Working with them was a highlight in my career so far, and to see them bring inspiration to all of San Diego reminds me of how proud I am to be their wedding photographer! Congratulations once again to William and Richard, I can’t wait to see what you both accomplish together – and how you inspire others together – next.
