I recently photographed another amazing military homecoming! Courtney welcomed home her boyfriend, Simon from a 9 month deployment to Afghanistan. The longest I’ve personally had to endure is 7 months, so she is definitely a trooper for pushing through this deployment and kicking butt!
Before I left for the shoot, the rain was pouring down at my house. I guess all the bad weather passed through, because we lucked out in that it was cloudy with a beautiful sunset peeking through the clouds for the homecoming itself. We chatted and got a few shots (this girl is gorgeous!) while waiting for the Marines to finish up at the armory. Before we knew it, the busses were pulling into the parking lot (apparently Simon waved, but we couldn’t tell it was him!), and these two were finally reunited! Enjoy the photos!
