The Wedding of Christina & Robert

Being a military veteran, I always try to give back to those who sacrifice for the freedoms that many of us take for granted. Christina and Robert approached me to photograph their wedding and I jumped at the chance. Robert is a Captain in the army and a 2004 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Their ceremony was held at the cadet chapel, and let me just say... WOW! This place is absolutely amazing! Robert, just to let you know dude... the Air Force Academy got nothing on West Point. =)

Christina, Roberts lovely bride, was glowing all day. This girl is so much fun (she had Audrey laughing the whole time) and oh so very photogenic. What can I say... when you have a gorgeous couple who knows how to pose... it makes it seem so easy. We had such a wonderful time that I didn't realize how tired I was until I got up the next morning. =)

Who doesn't love a man in uniform?

West Point's Cadet Chapel... OMG wow!

Dad and Christina, I swear the aisle was the length of a football field and then some...


What a gorgeous bride!

and a hot groom!  Down Audrey! Down!

After the ceremony, we had about an hour of "free-time" with the bride and groom and we walked all over West Point to get some really cool shots.  We snapped this one quickly as other wedding photographers were waiting with their couples for this spot... 





This was our first wedding experimenting with off camera lighting inspired by a great photographer out in california by the name of Ed Pingol Seriously, this dude is my hero. =)

This one was a happy accident! =)

The song that Christina and her father danced to was a song by the country group Heartland called "I loved her first".  I have to admit, I'm a bit of a sap and got really choked up while I was capturing these.  It made me think of the day that I'll have to give away my little Addison.

Check out the slideshow I put together for them. You can also see the full size version HERE.

To our new friends Christina and Robert, thank you so very much for allowing us the honor of documenting your wedding day. We were touched by your kindness and lighthearted demeanor. Have a great time on your honeymoon and we'll see you both in Hawaii very soon!

Wishing you all the best,
Jaymie, Audrey, Izzac and Addison
