What's not to love about a military homecoming? As a Camp Pendleton Homecoming Photographer, I love how emotionally packed a homecoming is. I love getting to capture a couple, or a family reuniting after a long period apart.
As a military wife, myself, I know what this separation period feels like all too much. I often say there are different levels of missing someone. Being apart from your significant other, or a parent, for 6 months or more, is a level of missing that most, thankfully, don't have to experience. But pretty much every military member, service member or family member, will experience this at some point, a lot of them will experience it more than once.
Alex and Josh recently completed their first deployment together. After a long 6 months they were able to reunite. There isn't much sweeter in this world than that first moment of getting to hug your loved one after a long time of barely being able to talk to them, let alone touch or hug them. These two, however, made it seem "easy". Their reunion was sweet and quick. They couldn't wait to get out of there and get back to being "them", together.
I'm so happy these two are together again. Welcome home, Marine!
