I am always honored and thankful when I have the opportunity to photograph such special times in these families lives! I too remember how it feels to be the Marine coming home and also the loved one waiting. it is never easy both ways. This story has a twist, for I too was as surprised as this lovely woman when her Marine got down on one knee and proposed! Thank you to you both for allowing me to capture such a memorable time in your lives. Congratulations on your engagement and, I truly wish you the best for years to come!
