{Real Wedding} Sarah & Tom

Christina of Zen Photography is another new photographer to join the Vendor Page so you'll be seeing a lot more photos from her!! A little about Christina, she is a Sci-Fi geek Fine Art Film & Digital Photographer located in the Hudson Valley NY & Lehigh Valley PA areas. Available for worldwide travel. She believes in "Living in the moments and capturing them for ever is so much better! I want to Carpe the Heck out of each Diem!" By the way!! Christina gives all military families a 10% discount on all portrait package prices, products, and services. A 10% discount also applies to all wedding packages and pricing. In addition, if you have a Military loved one either returning home from active duty or leaving for a tour and you are in the NY, NJ, PA area, please contact Zen Photography to discuss a FREE photo shoot to capture that very special moment. You will receive a CD of printable images at no charge. It’s her way of saying “Thanks for keeping us safe.”

Christina shares, "Sarah and Tom tied the knot on September 24th, only three months after he returned home from Afghanistan as a Captain in the army. They opted for a very simple, do it yourself, rustic farm wedding at Liberty View Farm in New York. These two didn't let anything get to them, not even the week of torrential downpours right before their wedding, which turned the whole place into mud. I've never seen a more relaxed bride and groom who’s love really shinned on their wedding day."  Thank you Christina for sharing this beautiful wedding!! I'm a huge sucker for sunflowers as they are my favorite flower.


  1. I am the mother of the bride featured in this story. Christina was just fantastic. She had just given birth to her second child a few weeks before the wedding and there she was rolling around on the damp ground snapping pictures. She is pleasant, professional and very talented. She brought in her good friend and fellow photographer, Fran, to cover the wedding and what a great team.

    Sarah and Tom discovered Christina's website while Tom was serving in Afghanistan. Tom, a talented photographer himself, selected Christina from all other choices based on her photographs.

    Needless to say, we highly recommend Christina of Zen Photography to anyone planning a wedding.

    1. Thanks so much for sharing <3

      Ellen, you are still my favorite MOB to date (shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone else that). Your family was so welcoming and wonderful. I could not have asked for a better wedding, couple, or family to work with.

  2. Awwwww. Thank you, Christina. You're pretty special, yourself! Thank you, Layla, for featuring Christina's beautiful photographs of Sarah and Tom's wedding. By the way, those sunflowers came from a local grocery store in Highland, NY where liberty View Farm is located. Sarah set up all the flower arrangements by herself!
