Naval Academy Wedding: Richie and Mandee

It isn’t often I photograph high school sweet hearts getting married!!  Kyle and I photographed them as they got ready in their childhood bedrooms. NSync posters watched over Mandee as she prepared for the big day. It was a look back in time with his prom king sash and her prom court sash both on display as reminders of another important moment in their relationship.

It was a classic Naval Wedding with the stunning blues and whites.  Photographing at the Academy seems easy because the ladies running are so organized and there are never ending beautiful spaces to photograph people!  Mandee was an absolute rock star in front of the camera!  We couldn’t take a bad photo of her if we tried! Her Dad did an awesome job walking her down that long isle and the ceremony had personalized vows, tears, and laughter.

I couldn’t help thinking about the two of them at Prom during the Reception and marveling at the idea that all these special and significant moments were with the same fantastic person, for both of them. I look forward to seeing more moments of the two of you together as your love and family grows! I’m going to miss you when you move away, but I know you will be back and I will be getting you back in that dress again supermodel Mandee!
