USS Dwight D. Eisenhower - Welcome Them Home

January 03, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower returned from a 6th month deployment on December 21st 2012 with hundreds of men and woman returning to their beloved families. I had the pleasure of capturing this moment for some. One couple in particular. Steve and Ashley met in high school in 2008. They became very good friends before Steve left for boot camp. After Steve returned from boot camp the two had became a pair. They married on May 25th, 2011.

As is for many, deployment was not easy. Other than when Steve ported in Greece and Spain and was able to Skype, the only form of communication they had was email and the occasional phone call. Ashley passed time a little easier with her work in nursing school. They missed each other more than ever but they believe the experience has made them closer.

It was so emotional and moving for all. Which is why I enjoy homecomings so much and am so grateful to be a part of them! Here are some other families I had the pleasure of capturing that day....
