Ok, ok. I know I’ve been all about how blessed I am lately…but REALLY, I am. I get to document the most beautiful, amazing, momentous moments and occasions in human lives. I was so blessed when Ha emailed me to ask me to document her reunion with her Husband Tin, a Navy Helicopter pilot who had been deployed for 5 months. I’ve never photographed anything like this, so i felt super challenged and very nervous (eek!) that i was going to miss a moment. But, i figured, heck, i shoot weddings that go 105398 miles per hour, i can do this! So, as we arrived on base at 7am :), i felt like a little kid walking around with my mouth open in awe at how big and amazing everything was.. The hanger(pic below) was jaw dropping to be in…and the lighting was great as well :) I tried pretty hard to not lose it a couple of times as i get pretty emotional because i get to be a part of the most important moments in people’s lives….like i said. REALLY, i’m blessed.
Ha and a friend watching their husbands come home.
The flyover..one of THEE raddest moments I’ve ever experienced. Chills.
Ha & Tin- you have no idea how proud i am to have been able to document this experience. Thanks for having me along. And, to Tin and his crew on the HS-4, thank you for serving our country, for your selflessness and sacrifice. Have a happy homecoming honeymoon :)
