If you've ever spent a longer period of time away from someone you love, then you understand how wonderful it can be to reunite with that person. As a Camp Pendleton Military Homecoming Photographer, I love getting to capture a reunion like military homecomings.
Corina & Eric experienced, and kicked butt during, their first deployment together. It can be really hard as a newly wed couple to go through a separation that is not only a long one, but also a potentially dangerous one. However, if there's one thing I've learned in my almost 10 years of being married to my own Marine, it's that we're built a little differently. You kind of have to be in order to be a military spouse. We are resilient, and we're strong.
Corina had contacted me last minute because her original photographer was unable to make her homecoming as the date had changed to a time she was no longer available. But that's just how homecomings go, always changing, and we're always needing a backup plan. Luckily, I just so happened to have an opening so it all worked out. I'm thankful that it did. I'm always so happy to capture military homecomings because I know just how important they are!
Eric & Corina had a beautiful reunion. The look on Corina's face when she's staring at Eric really does say it all. I'm so happy they're together again.
Welcome home, Marine!
