I believe that homecomings are the best days ever. They are romantic, exciting, intimate moments shared with your favorite people. While I strive to arrive about an hour before reuniting, I always work to give your family space and privacy while capturing this beautiful moment. I will not ask you to pose, look at the camera, kiss, etc. If you do wish to have a posed photo or two I wait until your family comes to me. (I have even had service members have NO IDEA I was there to capture it!)
If for some reason your homecoming time is delayed I stay with you until your homecoming takes place.
When we meet or skype for you complimentary consultation we will talk all about your hopes for these photos and the best way to achieve them.
My goal as your military homecoming photographer is not to just capture the moment, but to tell your deployment and homecoming story though art that you can forever treasure and hand down to future generations. These moments are breathtaking, heart wrenching, tear enducing, the biggest feeling days ever and they deserve far more than a snap shot - they deserve to be captured with the real emotion of your day.
Homecoming packages start at $300 and are catered to each families needs. Please contact me for details or to start building your package.
If you are wondering when the best time to book your homecoming photographer is, its now. For carrier and larger homecomings I typically am booked before the ship or squadron leaves Norfolk. I book by the homecoming, not by the date so no worries about changing schedules, extensions, or over booking. In the occurrence of multiple homecomings arriving simultaneously or emergency I always have a backup photographer on-call.
I am currently booked and unavailable for: the USS truman HOMECOMING (all ships & aircraft types), October homecomings limited.
