Most good photos require a bit of risk. Unfortunately for newlyweds Jenny McCauley and Kirea Lovell, their decision to take some of their wedding photos at the water’s edge didn’t pay off, as a new video shows the moment a huge wave soaked the both of them.
It was August 30, and the pair were posing for snaps in their dresses after exchanging vows. Speaking to Inside Edition, McCauley recalls:
I heard the camera man go, 'You guys should be scared.' And I thought he was kidding, so I started cracking up, and within a second, it just poured on us. I kind of just sat there in shock like: ‘Did that really just happen? Is this real life?’
The incident was captured by their wedding photographer, while some of their guests happened to be videoing when the wave came crashing over. Attendee Jayden Barrientos, who was filming, laughed: “I was like, 'You know what? They're in the right place and the wave is coming. So I need to get my phone out... Sure enough, it just crushed them."
The couple was able to laugh about it in the end and said the photos they have as a result were “totally worth it.”
