Brad + Katie's Homecoming Reunion | Whidbey Island Family Photographer

Homecomings will always be one of my favorite events to document. Seeing loved ones reunited after months of being apart - there's seriously nothing like that joy and relief. 

And seeing Katie and Brad's first homecoming reunion brought back all the butterflies that I remember when Ryan walked off that plane and back into my arms during our first deployment. It's like your first date and wedding day all rolled into one beautiful moment. 

I had the pleasure of photographing Katie and Brad a year earlier (almost to the day), when we shot a gorgeous couples session at Deception Pass State Park. They easily opened up in front of the camera, and were unafraid and unreserved about showing their love for one another. 

Because these two are the real deal. They belong together. Which is why it was such a pleasure and honor to see them reunited. Thank you both for your service.
